Lets Make America Great Again

america-is-on-a-ledge

This seems to be the chant of Donald Trump while on his campaign trail. He’s such a buffoon. That’s really all he says. He doesn’t really know what to do about it. How to actually go about “making America great again.” Really, none of the presidential candidates are willing to speak the truth on what it will take to get this country going again.

A guy on the radio this morning said that, not only are low level worker jobs being transported to foreign countries, but now, financial, technical, and other higher level jobs are finding their way to other countries. Why are companies shipping jobs overseas?

It strikes me that American labor costs a lot. Here are the reasons:

1) The number of people we support through our tax dollars who do nothing to help the economy or themselves is higher than ever and growing. 2) The number of countries we help with foreign aid is growing. Everyone has a hand out. 3) the number of people we support who are in jail and not making any economic contributions what so ever, is greater than ever and growing steadily. 4) the number of people in racial or special interest groups who are funded by the federal government is growing. Everyone wants some special help because of your “ethnic mix.”

If it takes us from January to May to pay our taxes. That means that only about 55% of our gross product is really production. The rest is helping people to sit and do nothing. Even the socialist foreign countries do not have this level of overhead to pay for.

I don’t even remember the last candidate who would stand up for decreasing government entitlements and spending, or, for that matter, one who would actually vote for it if elected.

I would vote for one who would dare to say it, and I could get excited about someone who would actually do something about it. If we want to be competitive in the world market, we need to change some things right away. We need to be humble about our worth. We need to respond to our market and we need to figure out what else can be done to make our economy work. Getting rid of this overhead burden would go a long way in helping people survive abundantly in this country once again.
