“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” President Ronald Reagan
Recently congress passed and the president signed another extension of unemployment benefits. Now, before anyone gets up in arms about my stance on this, I am not saying that people who don’t have a job through no fault of their own don’t need help, they do. However, I am a firm believer that we have to let things hit bottom before they will ever truly recover. Right now the economy is like an Alcoholic on his way down, but this Alcoholic still has everyone making excuses for him, giving him money to pay the bills when he blew his paycheck on booze and hookers, bailing him out of jail when he drove home drunk etc. It is time to take a step back, let it take its course and find out where rock bottom really is. After he hits rock bottom only then can he pull himself up.
The problem with this administration is that it has no sense of history, we have been here before twice in the last 100 years. Once prior to Ronald Reagan, and once with the Great Depression, both times the government trying to “fix it” didn’t work and only made things worse. What fixed it was less government interference and LOWERING TAXES. Here is a thought for the administration, follow Ronald Reagan NOT Roosevelt and Wilson. DUH! It isn’t that hard people and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist.
