Politics and Business are intertwined. America needs businesses to provide products and services and Americans needs businesses to provide jobs and innovation. In a perfect world, politicians would be paid well to do the job that is required of them, setting aside personal gain, power and influence to act in the best interest of their country first, followed by their constituents interests. If only it were that simple.
Today, America has lost its way. Government is not about providing the greatest good for the greatest number, it is about providing the greatest good for the fewest numbers. The wealth that was America is now concentrated in fewer hands, the majority of Americans are hurting, left wondering what has happened to them and why they are being left behind. Where is the middle class, the backbone of all great Nations. It is being decimated by a system that is spinning out of control and rigged to eventually fail. It has been perverted by allowing politicians to be bought and sold to the highest bidder. It will eventually lead to crisis in which all Americans suffer, even its architects.
At some point in the not so distant future, crisis will meet necessity, a true leader will emerge, one that will represent the interest of America first, States second. It will not happen until the majority of American come to the realization that the political system is not working and it must change. I am not sure when that will be or how it will take shape but is going to happen sooner rather than later.
There are solutions to what ails America and we will use this blog to educate and foster debate, so that one day America will regain that which it has lost.
