Climate Change – I don’t want the government wasting tax dollars trying to fix it. It will only mean a lower standard of living for everyone. I would rather they make plans to adapt when it happens.
Joblessness – They’re trying to fix it. Repeal Obamacare and maybe many of those jobless will be worth the cost of their salary and benefits. But Obama is sticking it to the workers and claiming that he is helping them.
Income Inequality – I want the government to do LESS on this issue. The liberals always point to the CEOs of companys and say Oh look how unfair it is that he makes so much more then the Janitor in his company. But you never hear them complaining that Actors/Actresses, Sports Stars, and Musicians are overpaid. Capitalism works. It’s not a rigged game but it exacts a discipline. It forces you to identify what you are good at and then work hard to continue to improve on those skills. The CEO of my company makes a lot more then me but he’s wicked smart and works hard. He and his officers make good decisions for our company which keeps the company operating and profitable. He’s well worth his salary. All of these government initiatives that transfer wealth from one group to another make the recipients grateful for government and not for the hard work of those that fill the coffers from which they take.
Gun Violence – I blame the press more then anyone else. If they weren’t reporting body count like a box score you wouldn’t see all these people trying to top the last guy.
Student Loan Debt – Nobody made these people take out student loans. First it was homeowner debt and the irresponsible complaining that they didn’t understand the mortgage they were getting into. Now it’s the students that are complaining that they didn’t understand that they would have to pay back their student loans. This issue will sort itself out given time. Those that frittered away their college years getting a useless degree on student loans will serve as a morality play for others.
The Republicans are doing the right thing and allowing these issues to sort themselves out. The alternative is the Democratic plan which is: “Let’s loot the productive and give it to the stupid and the lazy so they will vote for us.”
