America has been heads down and focused in one direction for 40 years. Reaganism has it’s place as a short term medicine, but the manic adoption and diligence of how we’ve applied have led to growing imbalances in our economic system not seen in the United States since before the Great Depression.
While this century is America’s for the taking. With energy independence, food independence, a diverse and vibrantly, and growing population. We aren’t without some of the most significant challenges we’ve ever faced, not just as Americans, but as humans. These challenges are going to require us to transform our economy.
The good thing about transforming our economy is that it creates vast new opportunities for wealth creation and innovation. So, rather than adopting a protectionist rear looking plan preferred by Republicans in government. It’s my firm belief that we should practice a core tenant of capitalism and embrace the change! One has to ask what exactly it is they’re trying to protect with all their worker facing rhetoric. Have they been able to save working-class American jobs? Or is the real result that they hand trillions of dollars to industry incumbents and billionaires who have no desire to use their profits to push this transformation themselves. We have a word for that kind of behavior in America, monopoly and we break those up. Doing so creates new jobs, distributes power, and ensures that innovation is able to take root rather than being stifled.
