As we move from an industrial economy to a postindustrial service/information economy we must, both from a moral and practical perspective, be responsible for helping those that are displaced to make as smooth a transition as possible.  We can look to history to see a similar situation.  In the 1800s we moved from an agrarian society where 97% of the population was involved in agriculture to an industrial society where 3% of the population provide us food today.  The issues of income inequality and populist fervor resonate with the issues of today.  Let us, in a bipartisan way, identify the problems using agreed upon FACTS, then craft compromises to address the problems.  Let us reject the siren call of the Music Man that promises easy fixes and work in a together to make lives in Carroll County and New Hampshire better.

"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."   John F. Kennedy
