It’s become apparent that the private sector should finance the rebuilding of America. Toll roads, toll bridges, toll tunnels, etc. should be sold to private businesses and financed by their users. Airports should also be privately owned. The Postal Service should be privately owned. Amtrak should be privately owned. Government-owned land should also be sold or leased. Car mileage should be taxed to pay for the non-toll roads that enable us to come and go. (Philosopher Ayn Rand pointed out these things many years ago in her many books and publications, i.e., private enterprise should provide and users should pay for the things they use.)
Frankly, without some practical action along these lines, national and state indebtedness will strangle the USA. The Federal debt doubled during the Obama administration – more than all past presidents combined. We are now reaching for $20-trillion – an incomprehensible number!
Our country was built by competitive, free enterprise – not by government debt – not by government owned and operated losing enterprises.
The Democrat party and the Leftist progressives have had their opportunity to demonstrate what quasi-Socialism can do. It has failed as it always does! All they’ve accomplished is a behemoth, out-of-control government bureaucracy based on spending taxpayer money and borrowed money.
Many entities in our nation are now second-rate. The Dems keep telling us that our nation is the best – is number one. Not so! Those who travel internationally know that this is not the case. We are in decline. The time has come to recognize the facts and reapply the principles that made America a great nation: competitive, free enterprise and private investment.
If the Democrats would just give Pres. Donald Trump’s ideas a chance – or at least end their smear-everything-Trump campaign – America might restore its global leadership position or, at least, end our decline. Certainly the Dem’s Socialistic ideology has not worked. The evidence is abundantly clear. One needs to look no further than the national debt which doubled under Obama and accomplished virtually nothing.
I’m confident we can restore America’s greatness if we return to competitive, free enterprise and private financing and the payment for the things we use. And we now have an action oriented, proven leader in Donald Trump, who understands how to make America great again! Let’s give him a chance. What do we have to lose?
Pass on. The Leftist Socialists Media Will Not.
