More than half (52%) of likely voters think the nation’s best days are in the past. Only 31% think the best days lie still ahead. — Rasmussen Reports
It is understandable that so many people think that. But they are wrong. The economy does stink. We are in the worst, most prolonged recovery in 70 years. Unemployment is awful. Millions of people have given up even looking for a job. Median family income is down. Debt is up. Growth is down.
But these bad things don’t just happen. They are the result of bad policies from politicians who do not understand the Law of Unintended Consequences, who do not understand that good intentions are not the same as good results.
The right policies can put us back on the right track to growth and prosperity. Most people think the country is headed the wrong direction. We need to elect politicians who agree with us, who know that we are on the wrong track and that we need to change direction.
