The main problem: The country has incrementally, over decades, morphed into a democracy. The wise Mr Franklin had his doubts, "A republic, if you can keep it"
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship".
What's the solution: Ron Paul laid out the solution, a return to constitutional government, non interventionist foreign policy and a return to a sound currency.
My thoughts: There appears to be no attempt from either party to recognize or correct the "loose fiscal policy", nor return our republic, so it would then seem apparent that we will have a dictatorship as martial law will be declared.
