One thing we all need to do to increase the prosperity of our lives and that of the country is to stop listening/watching the news and discussing the state of the economy.
There is a thing called the collective consciousness. It's something we are all a part of, and it comes from the energy of our thoughts, collectively. This is a source of energetic fuel for lack of a better explaination.(the energy from our thoughts has been measured in experiments to prove that this is true)
In part, because a politician or two mentioned it, the media "ran with" this "story" and the effect was a poisoning of our minds which has led most people to start being afraid and thinking about it. It's a form of brainwashing.
We need to stop buying into everything the media pounds into our brains on an hourly basis. Turn the channel, turn off the T.V., the radio, put down the paper or magazine.
As an example, just think about how President Elect Obama got the presidency against a lot of strong opposition. He spoke of a wonderful future for all of us and many of us believed him. Our energy joined with the energy of others and became a powerful force. This was his way of getting the position he got, by convincing us, talking about our wants and needs so that we believed and connected with him. He used our minds to create the positive energy he needed to get what he wanted! This is not to say he isn't qualified, won't be able to do the job or used trickery to do what he did.
Anyone that has seen the movie The Secret or knows anything about the energy of thoughts knows this to be true. We need to start expecting the best, knowing we will be ok as we are right now, right here in this moment. We need to think positively about our finances and the economy. We need to examine our core beliefs about money, lack, and abundance and work on changing them because they run our minds and what comes into our lives. Our thoughts collect and add energy to the negative or positive energy out there. Lets work on making it positive energy and reap the rewards!
The state of this country will turn around eventually, but it won't happen over night. The faster we understand what we are doing and how it has a negative impact on everyone but most specifically ourselves, the faster this situation turns around.
Here's to a healthier, wealthier and happier new year to us all!
Blessings and good luck!

During my late teens, when I was still a student, I started looking after stray animals...it started with a kitten with a fractured limb found outside my house..I took it in and looked after it and nursed it back to health. I started looking after many stray animals in my locality. There were stray kittens with eye infections that I treated, there was a dog with mange that I treated, and so on. I nursed sick animals, and spent my pocket money to buy the medicines. (By the way, a lot of relatives/neighbours thought I was queer because I looked after strays, and mocked me about my 'queer' ways.)
Within an year of starting to do all this, a world of opportunities started to open for me. I got into a good educational course in one of the most prestigious institutes in the country, and have had a good career and great financial security.
If I look back on my life, I can see that after I started working for strays the graph of my life shows a sharp rise. I have been really lucky that I put serious efforts to look after strays from a young age. Not only did this bless me with laughter and boundless love from animals I interacted with, but also opened the gates of success and prosperity for me.
Recently, I happened to have a long chat with one of my neighbors, who now cares for strays. He told me that I had inspired him to start looking after animals. He said since he started that, his business is roaring, and he is making huge money now. He specifically pointed out that he was doing nothing new/innovative in his business this year as compared to last year, yet out of the blue he had got many new clients this year and profits this year were huge...while last year profits were low. This man had also seen the connection between looking after strays and getting prosperous. I could only grin knowingly when he shared his observation with me...
