VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
by James J. Devine
America is still a rich nation and we have enough to do what we should be doing… The money is just concentrated in too few hands. In other words, some of us are poor because some of us are too rich…
TOO BIG TO FAIL IS JUST TOO BIG
Democracy is a political system where every person has equal value, while Capitalism is an economic system where wealth is given great advantages…
Every American baby is born $50,000 in debt. We should instead take away everything over $2 million from each American we bury… and let the inheritance benefit the whole country.
Of course, the wealthy will try to scare people by using terms like ‘communism’ to describe any fair distribution of the prosperity that results from being free.
It’s an old trick when you cannot engage in a conversation, just resort to name-calling. Americans ought to consider what’s best for our nation rather than some silly labels.
It benefits all of society to provide free education to our children.
The military is protecting some of us more than others, although we would all be safer if violence was used less in our foreign policy.
People who have nothing have very little to steal… so rich people naturally get more from security spending than the middle-class and so on…
Despite what we have been told, government works.
If you need evidence look at the three biggest government spending programs: Social Security, Medicare and the armed forces.
We also spend a vast amount of money on free public education but that is usually funded by methods that are more fundamentally unfair.
Statewide or federal administration and funding of public schools would work better than what we have now.
The health care debate has been hijacked by people who do not want to do for Americans what every other industrialized nation does for their citizens.
Freedom and prosperity mean nothing to the dead, dying, sick and injured. To exercize our right to life, we need a right to health care.
Instead of the costly, complicated compromise created in Congress, America should simply allow every citizen to enroll in Medicare.
A combination of taxes and premiums designed with common sense would keep the system solvent.
Our economy would surge if private employers got some relief from the high cost of employee health benefits.
America is the richest nation on the planet, but we cannot afford to betray the promise of equality, liberty, prosperity and justice for all.
