A Harvard study released in October 2008 indicated that 80% of Americans have lost confidence in our nation's leaders as people who are worthy of our trust. America watched in stunned disbelief as one after another of our once blue chip companies like AIG, Merrill Lynch, GMC, Citicorp, Bank America, Lehman Brothers and others fell into ruin.
