Was so happy to see this on the USA Today website today:
Under President Obama, we have a stagnant economy that fosters government dependency. My policies will create a growing economy that fosters upward mobility.
Government has a role to play here. Right now, our nation’s citizens do need help from government. But it is a very different kind of help than what President Obama wants to provide.
My experience has taught me that government works best when it creates the space for individuals and families to pursue success and achieve great things. Economic freedom is the only force that has consistently succeeded in creating sustained prosperity and lifting people out of poverty. It is why our economy rose to rival those of the world’s leading powers — and has long since surpassed them all.
The dreamers and the entrepreneurs, not government, built this economy, and they can once again make it strong.
My course for the American economy will encourage private investment and personal freedom. Instead of creating a web of dependency, I will pursue policies that grow our economy and lift Americans out of poverty.
It has been maddening this week to see so many GOP pundits waving the white flag and jumping all over Romney for his comments about “the 47%.” This is exactly the debate we need to be having in this country RIGHT NOW: Is America better off preferring private investment and personal freedom or is it better off preferring a system of redistribution of wealth and unlimited government dependency? Mitt Romney is right on this. Any conservative/GOP pundit out there who was against Romney as being the nominee over his questionable conservative creds but yet who think he made a disastrous mistake with bringing up an issue that is at the core of conservative complaints against big government needs to ask themselves how long we need to wait before we have this debate. My opinion is that we’ve waited too long as it is. The sooner it starts, the better.
Anyone else out there of my mindset in welcoming this debate? Let me hear from you.
