Present second term US administration's over-reaction and over-correction to the tragedy of 9/11 may have given America some temporary military wins globally but major economic losses that are here to stay for a long time. I am surprised to read recent article in Newsweek from a financial expert talking about million reasons and quoting the Fed Chairman why the $ is getting weaker, why deficit is growing etc except the real reasons. Commerce between the rest of the world is starting to heat up. South Asian countries Like Pakistan are becoming a hotbed of global visitors grabbing big financial deals. Next generation of Innovators and Entrepreneurs that used to come to America daily to make America technologically most advanced are now going elsewhere.
You are first an American and then a Pakistani American and then anything else if you have accepted to become a Citizen of the United States of America. If you want to be ignored or don't mind your Citizen's Rights trampled, upon then Do Nothing. Otherwise like other successful minorities start becoming part of the most important American institution called the Government.Part of Your Responsibility for Your Coming Generations is to be Politically Active at Local, Federal & National Level at All Times
