as a moderate. Bernie Sanders showed his socialist colors that reflect his views of economic equalization for everyone. He really plays to those who buy into his pie in the sky rhetoric. If we destroy business and kill Wall Street as Bernie preaches, we will all be worse off. The stock market is driven by stockholders who own a small piece of the growth and prosperity of the nation. Free enterprise has always been the driving force for immigrants to reach our shores and rise to success with freedom, opportunity. The American judicial system and respect for law and ownership of property has made us this great nation. Our nation doesn’t need the revolution that Bernie Sanders is selling to his followers who are enticed by his talk of handouts.
Let’s not forget our school laws, that every child must attend school to receive a basic education. We owe are school systems, both public and private, credit for part of our nation’s success.
Take the political climate, the challenge to the fossil fuel industry, a pillar of free enterprise, and now efforts to tear it apart. The new “green deals” attacking the fossil fuel industry, mixed with a price feud between Saudi Arabia and Russia, has oil prices plunging. Thank heaven that we have become energy independent here in the United States and do not have to depend on the Middle East for our fuel. Now comes the mysterious coronavirus hysteria and we have the perfect storm feeding upon itself.
Never in our history has there been such a severe and sudden wave of economic fear that has swept across America and the world.
During the 1930s depression, Roosevelt had it right when he said, “The only fear, is fear itself.”
I foresee this new virus eventually being contained, the political rhetoric will end in November, the Russians and Saudis will make up soon and the Chinese will continue to be a Communist regime where they can manipulate their currency and suppress their 1.3 billion subjects. In time they will need our farmers’ grain, beef, chicken and pork to feed their populace.
The storm clouds, like the destruction of a tornado, will blow away leaving behind a wide path of death and destruction. We can all learn from this brutal financial and health challenge and come out of this crisis stronger and smarter as a people and a nation.
We’re all Americans and we have always risen to a challenge better than any nation on this planet. Love your neighbors and friends. Old or young, stare death in the face, and live, bravely.
