Pick a side and stay there! If you believe the Obama stimulus is going to advance America to its former glory (almost) and, in essence, be a good thing…then spend. If you believe that it is going to tank the U.S. and cause an economic collapse… then save. Right now Americans are lacking commitment and certainly getting no confidence assistance from our Commander-In-Chief. He is truly one President who can talk out of both sides of his mouth…simultaneously. If we are going to go down an inflationary path, then spend while your dollar is worth more. Take that vacation you’ve always dreamed of or buy that car you know you really need, but do it in America! You will have memories to talk about from the vacation and someone will surely be carrying your replacement parts… mechanics are everywhere. You want hope? Then give hope? Let American merchants see us purchasing instead of hoarding so they can start hiring. I’m not talking about irresponsible spending… like Washington…I’m talking about our own MAIN STREET stimulus. Let’s realize that people are losing their jobs because we are losing our nerve. It has never been a better time to be an American because at least we can see the real enemy…Washington. WE THE PEOPLE cannot afford to let our communities wither away. An irresponsible government has taken our money, but let’s not give them our country too. The sweetest revenge would be for Americans to emerge victorious through our own recovery efforts devoid of Uncle Sam. Remember: “What goes around, comes around”.
Note: If we don’t invest in America then I know a few undesirable countries who will…and that’s not a good thing.
Another Note: The start of a better life is the acquisition of a backbone!
May God bless America…and may America deserve it!
