CLINTON RULE: A Catastrophe for Young and Old?

Written by William Pauwels on May 5, 2015

It’s reported that over 13 million college graduates are working for hourly pay.  In 2007, that statistic was 11.3 million.  This deterioration in employment represents a 19% increase since the Democrats took control of Congress in 2007 – and control of  the White House in 2009. 

Clearly, the Democrat’s antiquated tax-and-spend, big-government agenda has failed miserably for young Americans as well as for the public at large. 

Last year almost 300,000 college graduates worked for minimum wage – and over 37,000 of that group had advanced degrees. 

60% of the jobs lost during the past recession were considered mid-wage jobs. During the current “recovery”, 58% of the new jobs are considered low-wage.

Needless to say, any objective evaluation of the Democrat’s performance since they gained control of Congress in 2007 – and the White House in 2009  – must be considered unacceptable.  In fact, it must be considered a dismal failure. 
If Hillary Clinton becomes President as many of the pundits predict, will it mean more of the same ineffective Democrat leadership for our young people – and for the economy as a whole?  Will it mean the same inept leadership she demonstrated as Secretary of State?  I think so. 
Perhaps it’s time to return to the traditional American-Way as pioneered by our Founders.

As you know, most nations are founded primarily on the facts of geography, language, or ethnicity. 

America is the only nation founded on a creed – a set of particular Judeo-Christian moral and cultural ideals about freedom, human dignity, social responsibility, the work ethic, free-enterprise, and excellence.
As we approach a new party-nominating process and the 2016 general election, we should keep the above founding principles clearly in mind.  And we should remind our friends and family of these principles, which made the USA the envy of the world in centuries past. 
Hopefully, with God’s blessing, we will elect a candidate who will restore the viability of these American Principles – and overcome the damage that has been perpetrated over the past 6+ years.

Clearly, Hillary Clinton is not that candidate.
In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and reestablish the American-Way – the American Prosperity Machine.
