When you want your backed-up toilet fixed, you don't call a truck driver.
We need our economy fixed. We need to have people who understand economics and
business fixing the problem. But instead of securing the aid of people in the
business community (I know, they're the evil, corrupt capitalists who got
us into this mess... unless you look at just how the feds manipulated the
sub-prime mortgage--Fannie and Freddie-- and government playing favorites and
encouraging corruption instead of regulating it), we are relying on politicians
and bureaucrats, many of whom have never even run a lemon-aid stand, to fix our
economy. Hence, we get an agonizingly slow recovery. Couple that
with the insertion of socialist mechanisms in our capitalist economy, and its no
wonder that 14 million Americans have given up looking for work and are no
longer counted in the unemployment numbers. This may be the new equilibrium
unless we can get the feds back on a balanced budget and get them out of the
private market, allowing only for minimal regulation to eliminate corruption.
Weakest recovery ever thanks to an anti-business, anti-private sector demagogue
infesting the WH more concerned with consolidating his party's power,
assuming more control of your personal life, and demonizing the opposition than
getting the country back on track.
