Conserving resouces, watching our "ammunition", controlling our spending. Two trillion dollars of new debt borrowed at three percent could boil down to 165 million dollars of new national red ink in interest only payments each and every day. Isn't too much personal debt, failed government policies, and borrowing more and more digging a larger national hole to slide into? If the US can not borrow the money and starts cranking up the printing presses to cover the growing debt aren't we adding new holes to the ship that's listing and taking on lots of water already? Because this is not change and a move in the right direction the country needs, isn't this an expensive band aid for a mortal gunshot wound? This is serious business, not a video game requiring a few quarters to play. The stakes are high, lasting, costly.
Because less money trickles in from already strangled free enterprise operations, how does this video game movie end? Are you thinking the government will fix it all and lulled into a false sense of security? Do you feel powerless and like a deer in the head lights caught unaware as a trailer truck rounds the sharp corner, bearing down on it? You worry and are concerned about your own debt, but do you have the same aversion about the national debt? Creating more government, adding to the national overhead of wasteful inefficient bureaucractic debt and the expectation of more borrowing until we get it right should be gut wrenching felt terror.
When an American business builds a quality widget, can produce it ecomonically with a tight fiscal operation, an less government fingers in the operation and sell it at a fair price, expansion happens. Jobs are added, folks transporting the widget to market win, supplies of goods and services to build the widget make honest market driven profits. And every new dollar that factory creates turns over six times in the local economy. The business pays taxes, workers buy houses, schools are filled with rising numbers of students and the local economy booms. But if that business has more and more debt, is saddled with taxes or unfair foreign trade agreements and more government red tape to distract and drain resources, not matter how much money you throw at Joe Citizen to spend in a small token stimulus check, you slowly learn you need to start with the other end of the cow.
Let free enterprise work, flourrish and don't have Uncle Sam at the controls of trying to right an upside down airplane that is heading toward a mountain. Lighten the airplane..reduce government spending, shovel off the layers and layers of bureaucracy and eliminate one by one the congressional vehicles used for pork spending. If a farmer is creating wealth..something from just the soil and lots of hard work, then make his operation as free of government impediments as possible. Ask him what is choking off his life blood..and act on keeping the cheap food policy this country has enjoyed for some many years that is now threatened. Don't and food could become the ulitimate weapon, not deflated currency or dusty bars of gold and silver sitting in the treasury.
Or when a business with its own capital starts up with creativity and an eagle eye for slank in the operation and produces something timely, that is needed and affordable right here in this country, that is the beginning of rising out of the quick sand we are trying to tread frantically in. Let individuals create their own destiny not making it the handiwork of talking head college professors anxious to sell a book or appear on a talk show for their own betterment or to serve on congressional boards to shape the economic future. Small business..that is the engine that runs this recovery and feeds the many programs / entitlements that Americans enjoy but no longer can pay for or expect. Saving, not spending is what gives the traction to kill the waste by not adding to national debt with our own tax payer dollars. Let individuals invest in real estate by loosening up on the tax rates and fees now siphoning off too much of his hard earned payroll dollars.
