Take it to Jesus
By Michael J. Lewinski
The hedge fund manager, Ray Dalio, recently wrote an essay claiming that capitalism is broken. He has a point. He blames the federal reserve for the increasing income inequality and other problems that they caused. His big takeaway is that the breakdown of the family, our failing educational systems, failing infrastructure, and crony capitalism present an existential threat to our nation.
He points out that this failure has been taking place over a long period of time going back to the early ‘70s. One way we can deal with one of these problems is by significantly reforming education policies. The Trump administration wants to give parents the financial resources to pay tuition to any school of their choice. Choice, after all, is the hallmark of capitalism.
The Federal Reserve (FED) is long overdue for reform. Steven Moore and Herman Cain are great picks to nudge the FED into some reform which is more consistent with capitalism. President Trump would be doing us a great big favor by nominating such candidates of this quality. President Trump should also initiate an effort to reform the Federal Reserve charter.
We need to have significant reform to end the practices that enable crony capitalism to flourish. With less tinkering with interest rates, the zombie companies can fail, making room for more productive companies to provide better products and services at lower prices.
We cannot do that however if Patriots do not show up to vote in the 2020 elections and support Conservative candidates like Senators Mike Braun, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and Representatives like Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, who will support President Trump.
Without this, how can you expect favorable family policies from Congress if is not cleared of the Progressives who have been suppressing families? Who will respect the lives of the innocent who are torn from their mother’s womb? It’s up to you to do this. Take this to Jesus in prayer and ask for wisdom in order for you to decide what to do in 2020.
