Arthur C. Farago Ledyard
This coming election will give us a chance to attempt to control our economy. The alternative is to sink into the miasma of European socialism. There is much political rhetoric, most of which is just plain distraction from our country's most pressing need to save our economy and to create jobs. Our country is $16 trillion dollars in debt, growing at a rate of $4 billion dollars a day. This debt threatens us all and must be contained and lowered. Our president's only plan to pay off our debt seems to be borrowing money. Pure insanity. You will note that under this administration Congress has not passed a budget in four years. Why? Because a budget demands a willingness live within our resources. The administration spends $1 trillion more than we have in revenues. No rational person should consider re-electing this president.
