Where are we headed? As we look for solutions to our Nation's problems, it is important to know who we are and where we are headed.
Our form of government, our ideals and our essential freedoms are made for moments like those before us. They are not problems, but roadmaps to solutions only if we follow the right road.
When you hear that we should pack the Supreme Court, that we should censor speech and expression, that we should eliminate the Senate Filibuster, that we should ignore our borders or that we should scorn our laws and vilify our police; you know we are approaching a tipping point.
These are not the ideas of people honestly seeking solutions; these are ideas of people who want to undo this Nation as we have known it. This describes the ambitions of the Democrat Left; the Progressive- Marxists - the "Squad" - the George Soros backed Political Action Committees and other anti-American groups.
The Portrayers of these ideas are not the voices of people who are acting in good faith, but instead voices of people who shift blame from policies they themselves promote that have proved to fail the working middle class.
Our out-of-control inflation started on the very first day of President Biden's Administration.
1. Canceling the Keystone XL pipeline.
2. The canceling of petroleum leases on government-owned lands.
3. The withdrawal of drilling permits on these grounds.
4. Government pressure on the big banks to withhold operating capital from petroleum drilling companies.
5. Disallowing oil exploration on coastal waters (East and West) including the Gulf of Mexico.
6. The many exec orders that got in the way of producing goods and services.
Energy prices and ending unnecessary government spending are the two keys that will reduce inflation to tolerable levels. All of the increases in the cost of living can be laid at the foot of the price of energy!
Three weeks ago I purchased 10 gallons of 91 octane gasoline for my lawn mower - North of $40 this week the same quantity was North of $50 - there is no end to this escalation in sight. I am retired and living on fixed income, but I am able to make adjustments, others who are still working are not able to make adjustments, so they may find that in order to make the mortgage and buy the groceries - fuel to go to work may be an impossibility. Something will have to be eliminated, but what?
Government policies have led to this economy, Government policy changes can also end the problem. This Administration does not have the will or intelligence to PIVOT - similar to President Bill Clinton in '94. We will have to wait until this November for the people to voice their opinion with their VOTE. Do we continue or will it be the will of the people to change direction?
