The Urgent Need For National Economic Reform
Liberty, Justice, Education, and Morality; The Principals upon which our democracy was founded. Where are they today? The United States is being led to the brink of implosion by corporate greed, elected officials ineptness, and our own apathy. For the past 40 years we have witnessed a steady decline, an almost total evaporation of the ideals and principals that made the United States a leader among nations of the world. In doing so we are now faced with an uncertain future, a sociological and economic deterioration unparalleled in our history. Our direction as a nation is clouded in an uncertain future.
Today, what we are witnessing is a government holding the American public hostage. Never before has our elected officials become so self absorbed with an ideology that is very reminiscent of the KKK. Not, to mention that the United States is still in a financial and economic tailspin brought about by our own corporate leaders of high finance and policies of our own government. To date this financial crises continues to impact almost every family and small business all across the country. A real concern exists that when a government of the people and by the people has morphed into a body of self absorbed, self serving bureaucrats which is exactly what has happened America's days are numbered. In every corner of the United States there is a real concern of eminent disaster waiting to happen. Everywhere there is under current of financial worries, social crises, and the inefficiency of government. It is the inefficiency of our own government which not only continues to fester like an open wound but has become so infected the only cure is amputation. Will apathy win out and keep current government officials in play or will voters become so angered that the next election we will root out incumbency? If we fail to act we will continue to slide away from what our founding fathers envisioned and won't emerge from the quandary that our government and major corporations have now put this country into. It is time to do what is right for America instead of what is good for any individual, candidate or elected official.
With our federal deficit which has gone beyond ones ability to comprehend, when over 50 million Americans still can't afford health care, that's even with the enactment of the Affordable Health Care Law, still millions living from pay-check to pay-check, with millions more with non at all, more people incarcerated than any other nation, and the threat of man induced terrorism remains a very authentic probability, an infrastructure that has been eaten away because of the failure of put in place reforms and policies is as real as it gets. We have to have policies and reforms that would strengthen and improve bridges, our own electric grid, develop fresh water transfer nation wide and other projects that would safeguard the American public. These are just a few of the urgent needs facing our society today. No longer can we sit idle while our elected officials continually miss the boat. Miss the boat, our current legislatures today can't even find the right pier.
History is an invaluable tool. Lessons learned from the past are essential for today's reality. In 1933 Franklin Roosevelt realized that a strong foundation was needed to pull America out of the depression. Passage of the New Deal was crucial in bringing about lasting economic growth. The result was that after World War II the United States had the greatest economic expansion in history. As a nation the prospect of another depression if nothing is done will likely occur. Will we survive? Maybe! To do nothing or to borrow for short term relief as with the recent bailouts to just a few financial institutions and big businesses was not the answer either. The current sequester put in play or should we say jammed down the American publics throats has only intensified the ongoing financial and economic crisis the United States is in. Action is need now. It is our fundamental right, our obligation, and our duty to respond as a nation.
Today what is needed to keep the United States out of further economic decline and to thwart another major catastrophe is National Economic Reform. National Economic Reform with the implementation of it's Ten Articles of Confederation maybe similar to the New Deal. The reality is that the enactment of the Ten Articles of Confederation will provide the reasons why and the resources needed to propel the United States into a brighter and more secure future. Establishing National Economic Reform is essential in restoring the United States credibility, achieving lasting economic growth, providing national security and ushers in a new age of prosperity for all Americans. These Ten Articles of confederation are all intertwined where each one is contingent on the other. They are:
Budget Deficit Elimination
Universal Health Care
Social Security Restoration
Trade Deficit Equalization
Science and Technologies Implementation
Immigration and Homeland Security Reform
Department of Economic Development
US Treasury Reform
