The devastation from Irene caused can now be the center for job creation by the people running this country. As they continue to try to sell the idea that food stamps, welfare, and unemployment all stimulate the economy, hence so does Irene. With that type of logic we should applaud all natural disasters since they are job creators according to this administration. What is really needed to stimulate the economy and create jobs?
The creation of a welfare state is certainly not the solution to our current economic problems, yet that is the direction we are heading. How well is that working out for Europe? The UK? Now this president explains things in such a way that some people may believe he has the answers to end these problems. Understandable, that teleprompter is a great device, along with those people who actually write the words that come out of the mouths of those in Washington, including our President. Mr. Obama finds anyone and everyone to blame for what is going on under his watch, and heck he may even believe that the problem lies with congress considering he continually asserts the house and senate cannot agree on issues like the debt. He like blame everyone for the downgrade and refuses to recognize that S & P warned if there was not a plan in place to cut spending the downgrade was inevitable. Instead the president got what he wanted, at any cost, which was increase the deficit by raising the ceiling, continue spending as always, and not produce the type of cuts in spending that were/are necessary. Let’s be honest: The downgrade occurred as a result of spending and the unwillingness of this president to lead in such a way that is critical for this country to survive economically.
Mr. Obama will soon present his new job creation plan, no doubt something similar to his other rhetoric. These stimulus packages and printing more money cannot solve the problems we, as a nation, are experiencing, yet that is always part of Mr. Obama’s solution. How many jobs and how will did those packages work the last time? Mr. Obama believes in government control and big government. But the reality is, for the American people to truly understand what is happening in Washington and truly realize the actual goals of this government; they would need to get a firm grasp on the issues at hand. How many of you can say you truly understand what is needed to create jobs and get this country moving along into economic prosperity? It really isn’t that difficult, what is difficult is having to decipher the constant rhetoric and untruths of corrupt politicians whose motivation is stimulated by their own greed and arrogance.
For corporations to return to the United States, thereby creating jobs for the American people it would require the government to lower current tax rates so they are competitive with other countries. Currently the United States has the highest tax rate on businesses than any other country in the world. The government would also have to restructure and minimize regulations on businesses. Right now most businesses cannot afford to stay in this country; the regulations continue to grow, and most business owners cannot survive. Take a look around you – In every nook and cranny of this country businesses are failing. How many abandoned sites do you see on a daily basis? Look, and keep looking.
As our Constitution is being dismantled on daily basis, and as the American people remain disengaged, the ideas of our fore fathers and everything they put into place in an effort to protect this country is slowly disappearing. People like Pelosi and Reed, as well as others, forget that the government is: FOR the PEOPLE, BY the PEOPLE, and OF the PEOPLE – they need to be reminded of that.
