While our government and its elected officials scramble to solve our economic woes and put America back to work, I thought I would take a stab at introducing my own plan.
What do we have to lose? It beats just complaining out Washington’s inactivity. Besides, any plan coming out of either house, party or the White House will be condemned by the other side and they’ll just use it as fodder during the next election cycle when little if anything will get accomplished as they play Tug-o-War with our future.
My approach may be considered radical in comparison to any other plans that will be rolled out. But my plan will be aimed at solving not only employment issues but go to the heart of what truly ails our country today, in my opinion. It’s based on the dreams of the Founding Fathers and the vision I think most Americans and those who would like to be a part of this wonderful country, think of when they see the Stars and Stripes.
Most of the recent stimulus plans send money and tax breaks to their significant voting blocks and the organizations with the largest lobbying efforts, who worked hard to insure they’re first in line when the government has money and tax breaks they want to send out. It comes then as no surprise that big business, labor unions and those in our society less fortunate who represent a large voting block are generally in the mix.
That last group could be broken down into two portions those who truly need assistance and those who’ve learned to live comfortably within the system, and require their own form of stimulus to become a productive a part of society.
This country was established based on religion, family and free enterprise. Using that as my basis we need to look at how we return to one nation under God, strengthening the family structure while invigorating and encouraging small business and start ups.
