Big Government will never be the answer
It’s been widely reported that America’s small businesses cannot survive another four years of President Obama’s tax and spend policies. This is not just more election season hyperbole. Its inevitability is a very real consequence of this and previous administrations’ liberal economic policies.
President Obama has never run a small business and has a hard time identifying with small business owners. His entire life has centered on the public/government sector that simultaneously depends on and controls the private/business sector. Mr. Obama also seems oblivious to the fact that the federal government is only one of many tax jurisdictions. So while he and Congress are busy devising more revenue generating schemes to try to keep up with their spending, so are thousands of state and local governments.
He has said multiple times that we cannot go back to the failed policies of the past, without so much as a clue that he’s the one who is advancing those policies. One of the many such failed policies is the scheme to create more jobs for police, fire fighters and teachers. The federal government doesn’t provide the revenue for those jobs. Taxing the rich will have no effect because those jobs require local tax revenue from Main Street businesses, the middle class. That’s why we have been buried as Vice President Biden so succinctly put it.
Many of the poor and middle class people who depend on the revenue that small businesses generate are unaware of just how precarious this trickle-down tax crisis has become. This includes our employees, families, friends and neighbors as well as the police, fire fighters and teachers who should be able to take it for granted that we will be able to continue to provide a sustainable revenue stream.
The only way forward is through the election of conservative minded men and women at every level of government, from town council to president. After all these years since Reagan, government still can’t solve the problem because government still is the problem.
