Stop all deficit/stimilus spending. The more we borrow the more we cannot pay back.
1) Make our corporae tax rate the lowest in the developed world. Give companies who have moved overseas the chance to bring back their overseas profits (charging them a modest 5 - 10 % rate), ad allow them to relocate back here which will allow them to build more factories here, do more research here, more patents will be producted here and used here, R & D will come back and be done here.What ever it takes to change our tax structure to attract those jobs back should be done.
Ou only chance is to make the USA the easiest place in the world to bring outside money in, and then utilize that money to rebuild our country. The aftershocks of having good paying manufacturing jobs coming back into this country will revive our economy and put us back the right track.
2) find a president who has some b****s , one who will use his veto authority to stop lousy bills from becoming law
3) let Congress know that we do not want them to solve every problem for us by passing a nother stupid law
4)Spend only what we collect as a country and save 10% of that for the future.
5) Take the next 2 -3 years and get rid of the Departments of Energy and Education - take the massive amonts of money that they are fed by the Federal government and give it back to the States directly. HEW needs to be throughly reviewed from top to bottom and when you are finished you could be rdi of at least 60-70% of that expensive sinkhole
6) shut down all illegial immingration into this country and remvove all illegals from this country, if somehow you can stat the illegals will no longer receive free health care, food stamsps, or any other special treatment instead they will receive a one way trip back home.
7) only elect people whether they be Democrats or Republicians, or Tea Partiers who will stan up and be counted as Americans not like most of our current pond scum sucking people we currently hae in office. NEED MORE INFO THEN ASK FOR MORE
I think we need a Plan - maybe a series of 5 year plans, all important decisions will be made by a single centralized federal government with a limited number of people making all of the decisions for us. This plan should tell us what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how it is to be done. All health care decisons will be made by the government, and housing will be provided by the government. If a business does not hre enough people then the government will force them to hire more people. Production of goods will controlled by government agencies. The government will have all control on the public education system. All students will learn in the exact same way and at the same time.
All resources will be controlled by the Government because only the Government can make the best decisions. When the government makes lousy laws that encourage reckless decision making then governmen is the only way to make new laws to fix their previous lousy laws.
BUT WAIT - This was tried once in a place called the USSR - didn't work.
China tried it and it did not work. You want things to get better then vote laws to make the Federal government smaller. Turn power back over to the States. Limit the number of laws that Congress can pass. Balance the Federal and State budgets. PEOPLE the largest buyer of our Federal Government debt is ourselves.. How long can this farce continue. Make the tough choices now when you can, or make them later when there is no choice.
Well written letter. I just wish that they had made these decisions two to three years ago when the economy first started to stall. Using the Federal stimilus (taxpayer money doled out by Washington) was a shameful waste of money and has only postponed the pain.
Just a reminder that there is still a 3 million hole in Dr. Purser's budget that she is trying to fill with a Moore County stimilus package.
Go ahead do what has to be done this year instead of postponing it again to next years budget.
I wish I couI wish stick my head in the sand like so many other people have over the past 3 - 4 years and just not pay attention to what is going on around me. Everyone needs to wake up and look around. this is not a Moore County problem, this is not a State of North Carolinam this is a problem with the entire United States. We thats right We the people have allowed this to happen. We elect idiots who cannot balance a checkbook, but can vote on multi billion projects with no idea how to pay for them. We have budgets that no one pays attention to. We think the Federal Government will solve all of our problems and is a source of unlimited funds. Our current budget woes have been going on for years. We have tried creative tricks to solve the problem, we have tried stimilus money to keep things going - the time to pay the piper is now. If we do not make the tough decisions now at all levels of our government then some else will. We cannot continue to fund our own debt with our own money.
We have been on an unsustainale path for decades, and now it is coming back to us in a hurry.
What do you want another 8 crappy years of George Bush. I want an American to run - Personally I don't care if they are a Democrat or a Republican - Just be an American. I am tired of three faced politicians - their Public face, their Private face and their only interested in their Own face.
The power of the VETO needs to be used - and often. If Congress does not have the guts to do the right thing the first time, then force them to vote on it twice. We are not going off the cliff tomorrow, but if nothing serious is done then soon we will be at that point.
If the Rebublicans nominate Romney then prepare for 4 more years of President Obama. The energy that Romney brings could not light up a 25 watt bulb.
I want a candidate who will not care if he/ or she is only a 1 term President. I want a candiate who will lead us back to financial responsibility, I want a candidate who is not afraid to use their VETO authority and force Congress to rein in spending and take on the Entitlement mess. The time to pass the buck is gone, the time to stop the buck is here,
I can only hope that within the next 6 months a candidate will emerge that can energize all Americans to come forward and fight for our country - not some has been from Mass.
The choices that will have to be made are going to be difficult, painful BUT should have been made two years ago. Did everyone believe that the Federal Stimilus money was going to last forever? Dr. Purser has had two years to plan, cut back and be ready for this moment. I think it may be time for a fresh new look at how our schools are run.
AND if we really want to do things right then call your Senators and Congressman and have them introduce a bill that would get rid of the Department of Education. This money swallowing, paper pushing multi Billion dollar enterprise has done NOTHING to educate our children better and it is time to take that money and turn it directly over to the States and let them decide how to spend it.
I just wish I could find the idiots that will invest in this course when the other MHK course is barely hanging on. I guess when the first $500,000 is on the taxpayers dime then who cares. BUT really how can I tap into those idiot investors who keep throwing money away with MHK and have them give it to me. At least I will say Thank You when they give it too me. What business model do this people operate under? How can you continue to build these monster developments when no one wants to buy or live there.
A man once said that there is a sucker born every minute - especially with the money people behind these developers.
Just thinking about a $50.00 gift certifciate I have. When you reopen am I still going to be able to use it?
The system as is with the Unions in control make it almost impossible to fire a lousy teacher. Instead these lousy teachers are transferred from school to school (hurting our students) until they get tired of the transfer treadmill and quit.
I also would like to speak for the Taxpayer - the one who pays for all the things that the Public sector Unions have demanded. When the Union wants something they contact an elected official. At that meeting the elected official says no and the Union says "OK" no more political contributions for you. The Union will then give those contributions to someone else who will then win the next election. Then when the Union and the elected official meet again - Well you can guess the result.
How about this - In the next meeting let a taxpayer, any taxpayer attend. Let the Union say want they want and then turn to the taxpayer and make him/her take out their wallet and hand it over because this is what happens now. What would really happen is the taxpayer would say no and that would be the end of that meeting.
Collective bargaining for pay and benefits by Public workers is a lousy idea and its time has come to go away. Problems with the workplace, unfair treatments can still be a vital role for the Unions - BUT NOTHING TO DO WITH PAY.
As I like to say to any PUBLIC UNION MEMBER when they say "the Union is our only recourse to make sure that we are paid what we are worth" I have the same answer every time - do what people in the private sector do - QUIT AND FIND A BETTER JOB.
I wish the Governors of Wis., Ind, Ohio good luck with their efforts and I hope that every state will soon follow their lead.
