An easy first step. Why Buy American??

 A reason why the US is in an Economic Disaster
Think about it, the government creates a STIMULUS PROGRAM to (boost) the economy.  What are they thinking?  You can’t fix a problem by throwing money at it.  Why?  Because, we no longer have an export or trade surplus, much less an equilibrium.  How is shipping more money out of the country supposed to help our economic situation? Since 1976 the US trade deficits have gradually increased to over 7 trillion dollars.  Basically we import a considerable amount more than we export and the amount continues to  grow.  When will it slow?

This Financial Policy Causes:
·       Lost Jobs
·       Closed Factories
·       Decimation of the middle class/working class
·       Lower Standard of Living.

The more foreign goods we purchase, the more we reduce the industrial capability of our Nation.  With this way of thinking we can never regain our economy.

  1. There are so many different reasons why this economy is in the toilet. And by creating a stimulus program, our leaders are acknowledging there is a problem but just throwing money at it. That is an old way of thinking during a modern problem. I actually agree with many of the experts out there who believe that green technology will help put America back on top. But with the Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf, we're a little bit behind when introducing the Chevy Volt. I believe America has to commit to a green initiative and follow through on that commitment.....not just when gas is $4.50 a gallon. A commitment to modernize our infrastructure and reduce our dependence on foreign resources will start a cycle of reinvestment within our country. Green technology which is developed within America will create jobs in America because we will be the number one consumers. Second, we need to start researching the backgrounds of our elected officials. We need to keep track of their voting records and not just vote for them because they did a few Terminator movies or because we're mad at the other guy. Our ignorance to the election process has allowed a few greedy fools the ability to sell our country. It has allowed them to spend more than what we have and borrow from the Chinese. It has allowed them to pass laws which give tax breaks to the rich and take pensions and collective bargaining from the middle class. And all this happens while we just sit there and blame others. Our society has become lax in its approach to this economy. We keep waiting for someone else to take care of the problem for us. And if they take too long to fix it then we start complaining. But America isn't fast food and greatness isn't instant. We can offer many alternatives to the problems at hand. Without any action taken by the little guys out there, the big fish will continue to run the show. And although we don't know these big fish personally, they are the ones who are telling us what to do. They are dictating our socioeconomic levels on a daily basis. And in essence, they are our "BOSS".....and so I ask "HATE YOUR BOSS?"

  2. I agree, we need to combine forces and erase political agendas. We need to be ONE, together, to stand for our rights and not let government and corporations dictate our quality of life. Whether it be a nation wide walk out, a withdrawal of funds from all banks, or any other large scale wake up call, change will only come when the powers that be lose that power over the people.
