welfare of our citizens is at risk every time there is another crisis in the
The economic unrest in our country is largely a self-inflicted problem. We are having a serious problem with inflation that is caused by the falling value of the dollar. High taxes are punishing success.
Lost jobs and falling wages are hitting many homeowners at the same time that the price of everything they need is going up. Some of my neighbors do not see a problem with putting foreign fuel into their foreign made SUV until their job is sent to a foreign country.
I know folks who have parked their cars and now ride a bicycle to work. Not because they want the exercise or want to save the environment, they do it to avoid buying expensive fuel for their car.
All these problems are occurring while we have sufficient resources here in the U.S. to keep our economy booming.
Parts of the following are excerpted from The Platform of The American People that can be found at AmericanSolutions.com.
We can solve our environmental and energy problems, faster and cheaper, with innovation and new technology than with more litigation, more taxes and more government regulation.
Entrepreneurs are more likely to solve America’s energy and environmental problems than bureaucrats.
To combat the raising cost of energy and reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources, we support the Unites States using more of its own domestic energy sources, including the oil and coal it already has here in the U.S.
Our current dependence on foreign oil threatens our national security and our economic prosperity by making us vulnerable to dangerous dictatorships.
We should build more refineries in America to lower the cost of transportation fuel and reduce our dependence on foreign supplies.
We believe in using U.S. domestic energy sources such as coal and oil, even if it means drilling off our coasts and in Alaska.
We should be offering tax credits for American business that develop new energy sources.
If we use technology, innovation and financial incentives, we can solve our own energy and environmental problems and have a thriving economy.
We each need to do our part in the fight to maintain our freedom, by conserving our resources, investing in our future and by voting for representatives who believe as we do.
