America’s Endangered Influence
Ronald J. Pawley
April 22, 2020
Unemployment in the sense of distress and our economy is increasing due to the corona virus. Is America closer to the final chapter of being a successful leader?
Poverty is increasing, deficits are increasing, and citizens are angry. This virus, in reality, takes on the appearance of a bio-weapon.
Through the leadership of a controversial President, our economy became the envy of the world in a short period. The negligent, careless act of the Communist Chinese government changed America, practically, to a third-world nation. Was it really an accident?
Recovery and stability are not achieved by luck and do not happen by accident. Wise leadership and a sound government, conditions in America will be substantially improved and this positive message would reverberate throughout the world.
Perhaps history will repeat itself. In World War 2, we had a general who was controversial, assertive but got the job done. That’s why Germany feared and hated him. His name was General George Patton. Today we have a president who is controversial. assertive, but gets the job done. That’s why some folks fear and hate him. His name is President Donald Trump. We’ll be watching!
There is no guarantee that America will fully survive this evil virus, causing deaths, poverty, and jobs. President Trump and Congress have a monumental job trying to correct this tragedy.
Our leaders must reinvigorate America’s quality of life. Federal budget deficits of trillions of dollars are disarming and evidence of spending is absolutely out of control. The threat isn’t fiscal restraint, it’s fiscal irresponsibility which can cause inflation or a recession.
Clearly, the economic events caused by restraints imposed by the corona virus of the past month have severely damaged our system of capitalism. This could eventually spiral the American dream into an aimless, defeated nation — unless our leaders can achieve reasonable solutions.
The struggling middle class is watching their life savings evaporate through layoffs, and bloated regulations that discourage the entrepreneurial spirit. The stark reality is that our system of capitalism is in a crisis.
Worthwhile goals are so important to an individual as we maneuver our course through life. If they are not implanted successfully, or if a person loses hope of achieving them, he could evaporate into the despairs of frustration and hopelessness.
We need to get back to work using safe and prudent safety measures. Ronald J. Pawley believes that America’s citizens must remain vigilant by social distancing, wearing masks, etc., until an effective vaccine is available.
America’s system of capitalism is fashioned for the individual to pursue and achieve his dreams to the best of his/her ability. This helps to preserve the real meaning and motivation to life.
For many years, families and entrepreneurs from around the globe moved to America to pursue and capture the American dream.
However, an analytical perspective has spotlighted a troubling change in our culture, created by the virus. We are losing our status as a great nation.
Our government should take an inventory of their policies, and make a comprehensible call to action for rediscovering what makes America so exceptional and a sought-after place to live and raise a family — as they pursue and embrace the American dream.
Well-connected politicians and lobbyist are making millions from a suppressed problem creating misery on our economy– turning America into a “granny state”. The connected-elite are more concerned with enriching themselves than with improving positive opportunities for the people. Can we restore our economic system?
Hard work brings success rather than who you know or just plain luck. Clearly history will reveal that our system of capitalism makes even the poor rich by global standards.
