The American Way

The business of America has always been business. Without the catalyst of commercialism – the market driven necessity of innovation and competition – “We the People” would forever be dependent upon the tyrannical and corrupt whims of Big Government; and the world as a whole deprived of some of the most transcendent discoveries in human history. Capitalism is the engine of our vitality, the genesis of abundant opportunity, and it is by far the most synonymous with economic liberty. If Obama truly created 850,000 manufacturing jobs, why are a record 95 million absent from the workforce, 47 Americans million on welfare and our Gross Domestic Product during his 8 year tenure (1.55%) the lowest since WWII? Is a monthly trade deficit of 50 billion dollars indicative of a thriving and competitive private sector or one suffocated by an encyclopedia of regressive regulations and the handicapped markets of free trade? Is a $3,000 drop in household income more likely to occur amidst a robust job market hiring skilled labor, or the fiscal fallout of an ideological shift to a menial service economy where part-time jobs are touted as a strong recovery? And finally, does the real world need more liberal arts degrees, soapbox activists demanding $15 an hour for choosing to work at Starbucks and McDonald’s, or more inventors, engineers, mechanics, electricians, and machinists needed to rebuild the sputtering engine of a strategically sabotaged economic super power?

Individual success and profit aren’t the exclusive trademarks of “greed” and privilege. Quite the contrary. They are overwhelmingly the derivatives of hard work, ambition, perseverance and choice. Do no pity the less fortune or assist the immediate desire to cast undue blame. Such destructive behavior does little to alleviate their actual plight. The best way to help those struggling get back on their feet, to reclaim their lives and forge a meaningful path into the future, is by empowering them to reach heights they never imagined or remotely thought possible. That is the American way. A means to a means…a business or a self-sustaining job…is far more enduring and transformative than cultivated dependency…or a means to an end: i.e., inescapable poverty and unsustainable debt. No excuse or political promise is worth your dignity or liberty.

An American President that does not protect and help create quality American jobs is no friend of the American people. There is a stark difference between a proven business executive who understands economics and a bitter political propagandist who seeks to punish America and redistribute private wealth out of an ingrained hatred for our heritage, affluence and unrivaled global influence. You can’t lead a nation into financial security, embody accountability and self-reliance, when you believe millions of able bodied adults are owed a “fair share” of the fruits of other people’s hard work, without sharing the same level of personal risk and sacrifice, simply because of one’s race, nationality or the inevitable pitfalls in life. Equal rights, opportunity, does not dictate equal achievement or outcome. Reality does not bend to the detached delusions of modern academia fostering a generation of “traumatized”, entitled, and intolerant thugs who sanctimoniously judge the world through the myopic keyholes of color, gender, class, political affiliation or religion; those career malcontents who falsely claim injustice, incite discord and who believe logic is a subjective construct of personal convenience. Rather, reality exposes these radicalized factions as the greatest living threat to those responsible Americans wanting nothing more than to grow old in a free, proud, moral and prosperous society.
