Is the government afraid to ask Americans to make material changes to support the country?

When we were at war, the U.S. used to call for citizens to sacrifice for the war effort. Rationing of materials like gas was one of the ways people could make sure that they supported the military. Buying war bonds was another. Propaganda posters unabashedly correlated personal patriotism with what you were doing to help America win a conflict. Today they will know our patriotism by our American flag swimsuits.
