Will the economy ever be the same again?

The powers that be play a dangerous game in their lack of will to improve the job market and refusal to “prime the pump” of the Main St. economy. The longer they delay in the stimulation of job growth in this nation. The more the citizens of the nation may no longer feel the need to employ the services of companies who show little regard or patriotism for the country that affords them so much.

Passion alone does not a leader make

I should be elected President because I really, really want to be president is not a platform. However, in political races of every level, especially as the Tea Party has come on to the political scene there have been more and more of this type of candidate running for office.

Getting lost in the fog of political rhetoric

Politics today is reminiscent of pre-school children. Throwing temper tantrums when they don’t get their way. Claiming the entire sandbox to be “Mine!”. Calling the opposition foolish names and saying “I want that, I want this.” without rationalizing the cost. They can want all they want but if it doesn’t make fiscal sense than it’s not going to happen. Made up, unrealistic numbers can be thrown out in a speech, however if they have no basis in reality they are worthless to the American public.

Many people give up and no longer want to participate in government not knowing the many reasons why constituents voices may be seem to go unheard in the political process.
