The Constitution

American Problems

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

...Thomas Jefferson

One of the major strengths of America has always been its free market system.  Wealth is generated by those who invest in their business and provide jobs to the population - not by the federal government.  In an uncorrupted free market system, businesses who follow bad business practices, are unethical or who charge too high a price for their goods or services, go out of business or are brought in line by competitors.

The free market system ALWAYS works unless there are other factors involved or it is corrupted.

Government bailouts, illegal actions and barriers to competition are some of the means by which the free market system is corrupted.  Granting mortgages to hordes of people who can't afford them are another form of corruption of the free market system.

In an economic downturn, the U.S. economy will always eventually right itself.  Government intervention almost never works, but it just isn't politically popular for government officials to sit back and do nothing, even when in most cases that is probably the best thing they can do.

Government intervention into the free-market system should focus on the aforementioned corruptions of the free market system.  The federal government generates very little to help the economy and is a tremendous waste of wealth.

One of the factors affecting the generation of wealth by our free market system, is the serious reduction in American manufacturing jobs that used to provide jobs, wealth and other benefits for much of the American middle class.

The free-market system, when not corrupted, is self-policed by the competitive market.  Businesses that operate inefficiently, that provide inferior products, or that charge prices that are too high, are brought in line by competition. Bad business fails - good and smart business wins. Government programs usually have no competition to force them to be efficient and cost conscious.

The current policies of the liberal government will bankrupt our country and there is likely no other country on earth that will bail us out.


"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
