Let's hope the new year brings a new vision
To the editor:
For all of those who did not like the progress of last year, let's try to persuade our leaders to do the right thing, and vote on and pass bills that will move our country forward instead of in the red.
The Tea Party has made its presence known nationwide. The past two years of stripping the citizens of their rights, property and cash has to stop. Spreading the wealth does not build a viable and successful country that can employ and generate a national tax base. Our continued unemployment figures have a lot to do with the leaders in D.C. The bailout packages were not shovel-ready and we were sold a bill of goods packaged in the wrapping of deceit.
Putting a halt to all of the freebies we are giving away to foreign aid, moving manufacturing back to America and cutting corporate taxes will boost America's power in the world. Wouldn't you rather pay a little more for an American product and have a good-paying job? I would think all people would want to do this if it was assured they had a place to work and an employer to provide them with a salary to be able to live well in this land.
Americans are people with good hearts, but when the pain of unemployment is so great that we have regulated our companies out of business here in America, it is time for the legislators to move to bring home the bacon and build and open doors of employment here once again in America. Close those borders to the Central American countries and those in Asia and give corporations incentives to build here again. Proper tariffs on all goods coming into our nation will slow down the box stores and promote a new sense of nationalism.
There is one thing each of us can do. It is to let our elected officials know where we stand. Boycott corporations building out of this country. If we can drive down their investors dividends, then we open their eyes to building here again to sell their products. It is a win-win for everyone. Our unemployment rate is lowered, our tax base will grow and our need for foreign assistance will be diminished. Vote for a new America in 2011.
