Where do we go now?

October 25, 2012

So much has happened in the past four years here in America and around the world. Where do we go now? With elections just two weeks away American’s have a huge choice to make when decided the path our nation will travel down the next four years.  Many individuals we talked to have given up hope and don’t want to vote in this election cycle.

Why do these individuals not want to vote. Some of them claim they voted for Obama and are disgusted in the way he has handled the economic crisis along with the foreign policies which make us look weak.

Others say they don’t like the Republican challenger because he has made so much money in the private sector he may not work for the middle class as he has stated on the campaign trail. They fear he will be for big business and Wall Street types neglecting the individuals who are really struggling in this economy.

Regardless of your position, party affiliation or thoughts and ideas of where this country needs to be there is one thing that is sure, if you don’t vote, your voice will not be heard and will be silenced.  Remember Florida was won by Bush by just under 600 votes and many have express concern because they failed to vote in the Sunshine state.

Have your voices heard and get out and vote. Find the candidates who best represent you and your views in the local elections, in the State elections and in the Federal elections.  There is too much at stake not to vote…

80% of Americans Believe Congress Has A Spending Problem

July 16, 2011

Finally, Americans are speaking out and letting Congressional members know they have a spending problem.  The latest poll out suggests 80% of Americans Believe Congress has a spending problem and want them to rein in the spending and finally do what is right for America and not their re-election campaigns.

This poll was done in the confines of a local restaurant here in Las Vegas.  As we were eating and enjoying pleasant conversation the subject came up “Does Congress Spend More Than They Should?’ Out of the 5 people at the table 4 exclaimed yes to the question. The only one who thought Congress didn’t have the spending problem was a union member for the local school district.  With that said imagine what the real statistics would be if I were to poll say 500 or 1000 individuals all across the Nation?

I would venture to say the results would be close if not exactly the same as my small sample poll.  14.5 trillion dollars in debt with 110 trillion in unfunded mandates due with Congress having no idea how to pay them at this point in time. Yes I would agree with those 80%, Congress has a spending problem that needs to be addressed immediately if not sooner.
