If the object of the government is to encourage investment, entrepreneurship, and create jobs, this is exactly the wrong way to go about it.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.
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.
It is up to us, the voters, to do something.
