The New America-more socialism than capitalism

America is not a socialist country. We have private ownership of assets and profits.

However, it is not a capitalistic coutnry either. The State contols almost every business with regulations, fees, restrictions, and taxes.

Because various types of government make up more than 40% of GDP, we live in a society dominated by government.

America is a combination of the two with socialism becoming the more powerful influence.

I love this quote.
The risks are socialized; the profits are privatized.
Capitalism is what made America great. It allows us as American Citizens to work hard and keep the fruits of our labors.

Now we work about 6 months a year just to pay our various taxes.

It is time to use our vote to remove the parasites from office and elect courageous legislatures who will reduce government and balance the budget.

United States is stifleling investment

I read this article that said that the United States was stifling investment by adding more and more investment regulations. It stated,
If the object of the government is to encourage investment, entrepreneurship, and create jobs, this is exactly the wrong way to go about it.

And I'm not blaming just one political party. Things are the same now as under the last American president. It's as if the nation has decided it no longer wants to encourage its companies or foreigners to invest in the U.S. Most likely, they don't think of it in those terms; they likely still think that since the U.S. is such a great country, then of course anyone would want to invest there.

But the truth is that by doing these things, non-U.S. people are less likely to invest, and thus the U.S. is seen to be simply hurting itself.
The Democrats and Republicans have controlled our country for over 100 years. They are destroying it. We need a few more major political parties to provide fresh ideas and competition. However, the Democrats and Republicans are doing everything that they can to prevent another political party from becoming a major party.

It is up to us, the voters, to do something.
