I am amazed at the number of people who wish the new President would fail. People who are making huge salaries, don’t have to worry about paying their mortgage, keeping the lights on, or putting food on the table want this President to fail as he attempts to get the economy back on track. All of those years they watched as the real wages of America’s middle class declined and our standard of living was reduced, now all of a sudden they have all the answers.
More of the same failure they created. They think the marketplace should create the solutions if they want to, but it is the government that has always created the marketplace. The Federal Reserve sets interest rates, the government agencies are huge consumers of manufactured goods, and they were suppose to watch over our interest to make sure the market place didn’t forget who we were, the American taxpayers and public. And the greed of the captains of industry are becoming more and more apparent.
We dumped trillions of dollars into Iraq with no oversight, no questions asked, and no accountability. Anyone who questioned that waste was called un-patriotic and anti-American. And the only people who profited were the war profiteers who are now being exposed for the excess and shoddy handling of our taxpayer dollars.
Let’s change the channel on these nay sayers. Let’s wish our new President God speed in his efforts to help all of those nameless faces out there who are suffering. And pray it doesn’t happen to us.
