While many of you that will read this understand that there is not much the government can do, other than step aside, to make this economy better, we must also realize that the fact that the government will not step aside is the reason why we are seeing numbers like this. When in recorded history has our government done anything right when it came to the American people’s money? Everything is over budget or is cluttered with waste, and the people are now suffering because those on the Left in Washington do not want to do the right thing. That is not to say the Republicans are not to blame for some of this, because they have had their days of spending too much as well, but the day has come to stop spending and try to figure out a way we can get America back on track. The President’s recent plan does not do that, and the people will be left to suffer even more than we are today if something is not done soon.
When we see numbers like 1 in 6 people in America are living in poverty, that should make everyone in this nation sick to their stomach. This was and is the nation of opportunity, but in the past few decades we have given up the opportunity for a quick buck on the back of other Americans. How can we sit here and say that this is the greatest nation on the Earth, the most ethical nation on the Earth, and we refuse to pay our bills and refuse to tell people to pick themselves up out of the dirt and make something of themselves? It is impossible to believe that this nation can sustain much more of this when we see numbers like this. The problem is the people who still have jobs will not pay any attention to these numbers until it is too late, and then they will get involved. It is up to those Americans who care about the future of this great land to get up, scream, and tell their representatives that we will not stand for the out of control spending any longer. The Obama plan for jobs is not what we need to fix the problem that we are talking about in this blog today, what we need is for the Obama Administration and the Congress to step back and allow businesses to do what they need to do to get this economy back. The only thing Washington can do is lower taxes and regulation, but in no way can Washington create jobs just because they say they will. It is a lie we have been told for far too long. read more »
