Saving the U.S. by Fighting for Capitalism
Oct 12th, 2013 by kids4biz


When things turn out EXACTLY as you feared, saying “I told you so,” is a worthless consolation.

Case in point, on September 17th of 2011, the Socialist enriched “Occupy” movement was launched. Ironically, it was also “Constitution Day,” a fact I’m convinced was lost on the “Occupiers” and sadly, on many Americans. President Obama, while not overtly supporting the movement, did so indirectly and aggressively in the context of his 2012 re-election campaign. Both the Occupiers and President Obama, while ideologically corrupt, were righteously committed.

On October 5th of 2011, Congressman Rohrabacher had the courage to submit Congressional Resolution H.RES.422, “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the superiority of Capitalism as an economic model.” As the author of the original draft, my intent for the bill was to unite Republicans, Conservatives and freedom loving individuals around a set of principles that would offer Americans a clear and distinct alternative to Barack Obama at the polls in November of 2012. If the election of 2010 proved anything, it demonstrated that Americans want clarity and vote for justice. The Tea Party offered both and Americans voted for Tea Party ideals with passion.

Here is a link to the 2-page bill for your convenience.

Sadly, NOT A SINGLE free enterprise loving Republican or Democrat stood up to Co-Sponsor the bill and it was never brought to the House Floor for a vote. The result is what you see today; a party that is divided, spineless and lost. They are a party LITERALLY without a backbone; a backbone that a vote on the “Capitalism Awareness” resolution could have provided. Had Republicans rallied around Capitalism and made the distinction clear, the Obama Presidency would be a regrettable memory and the country would be thriving again. Instead, Republicans tragically and consistently cave to a President sitting on five years of a disastrous economic and foreign policy record.

There is still time to turn things around before the 2014 and 2016 elections. There is still time to convince the American people that it’s Capitalism, not Socialism that increases wealth, personal dignity, independence, education, health and above all, freedom! It all begins with a vote on the “Capitalism Awareness” Resolution.

It’s Obama’s Recession
May 24th, 2012 by kids4biz

Liberals often recite some version of, “we lost 741K jobs in President Bush’s last month of office” and then continue to give President Obama credit for saving the country from another Great Depression. They use this statistic like a weapon, not realizing it can and should be immediately turned against them. The truth of the matter is, the Democrats caused the recession and Obama is keeping it alive. It’s Obama’s recession and here’s why.

The Democrats won control of the Congress and Senate in November of 2006. The job loss under President Bush began in November of 2006. There’s a nice graph of this here contained in this article by Sean Patrick Hazlitt.

This makes perfect sense because businesses plan for the long term, when they can, and react swiftly when they can’t. With liberals taking control of both Houses and Barack Obama’s star on the rise, the outlook for business success was bleak. There are many pundits analyzing the economy and making predictions. Opinions vary on causes and cures, however a common phrase one hears in analyses across the board is “macro economic uncertainty.”

With tremendous uncertainty on the horizon, strategic thinking, increased production, HIRING, risk taking, bold thinking and all the things that contribute to innovation and a healthy, wealth building economy disintegrate. The reality of the last six years proves this.

It’s natural to ask, “Then why didn’t the economy turn around in 2010 when the Republicans took over Congress?” The answer is simple. The Democrats still controlled the Senate and Obama’s defeat in 2012 is not assured.

The macro economic uncertainty, which grew rapidly from the Democrats’ victory in 2006 and Obama’s election in 2008 not only caused the recession but it’s keeping it alive.

Side Note: Congressman Rohrabacher (CA 46) had the vision and courage to submit Congressional Resolution H.RES.422 regarding the “Superiority of Capitalism as an economic model.” Capitalism, by definition a system of voluntary mutually beneficial exchange, is a system characterized by the absence of force and the pervasiveness of persuasion. “The Rohrabacher Rule” can be read at this link.
