America’s number one goal must be to get people back to work. That’s the message I’ve been getting from this country’s hardest, most dedicated workers – farmers.
And that’s the message all common, nonpolitical – taxpaying – citizens must get across to President Barack Obama and Congress. The world’s economy hinges on getting the U.S. economy back on track.
It can’t be done by talking about “the difficult road ahead” or “the worst is yet to come”. True leaders vision what they want to happen – and act to make it so.
So, Mr. President, focus! Put aside your taxing plans. Put aside your socialized medicine plans, and etc. Focus solely on restoring the public’s confidence in government, and talking up economic recovery.
Let’s hear you celebrate – daily – the successes of people and businesses that are leading the recovery. Ditch the apocalyptic messages! Be a good news leader, not a bad news bearer.
And, Mr. President and Congressperson, stop throwing more bail-out money down the financial well. Let the free market and capitalism work. Provide incentives for the fiscally responsible and let the insolvent suffer – in prison, if warranted.
That’s what America’s hardest workers want. And that seems to be what the stock market drivers are waiting for.
Readers, I encourage you to forward these comments to your congressional representatives. And ask them to pass it along to the President.
