I'm not going to waste my time playing into the left/right paradigm, or the trickle down/up paradigm, or the rich/poor paradigm... but I am going to
share MY experiences because I AM A JOB CREATOR!
I am a middle-class, mid 40s male who makes just barely more than 6 figures a year - hardly rich by any definition. About 2 years ago I left
corporate America behind to start my own business in order to escape what I perceived as "indentured servitude" to the corporate masters. I wanted
something different for myself and my family and I wanted to create something different for the employees I imagined I would someday hire.
The road has been difficult, to say the least, with the government putting just about every imaginable roadblock in my path to success. Between
registration fees, taxes, insurance and the countless regulations that I have to constantly monitor and adhere to there is scarcely time to actually
engage in business-building. It is almost as though the government is putting the onus on me in order to protect the prevailing monopolies. That
said, I have actually been successful in developing a strong client base - so much so that it has been necessary for me to hire people to help me run
the business and continue its growth.
The reality is simple, if I had more money, more access to financial resources and less regulatory obligation, I would have twice as many employees,
would be generating 3 times the revenue and paying 2 to 3 times more taxes. However, I would also fit into that nasty category of "rich" business
owner - one that the government is working hard to eliminate.
So instead of playing into the existing paradigms I can tell you from direct experience that BOTH PARTIES ARE DEAD WRONG! Wealth trickles both up AND
down. BOTH rich and those of modest means CREATE JOBS. And Government is the single biggest impediment to a fully functional, fully employed
economy. If government would get out of the damned way, end corporate welfare, enforce anti-trust laws against monopolies and stop bailing out
failing businesses we could get back to enjoying prosperity. A good look at the facts followed by careful, thoughtful analysis reveals that the
government has no desire for its people to be prosperous - as a prosperous people can rely on themselves instead of trading their freedom for
