Thanks, but no Thanks


To: Bobby Jindal
I read your comments (“Jindal called for traditional Republican policies of tax cuts, less government involvement in the economy, and reliance on free markets and individual efforts. ‘The strength of America is not found in our government,’ he said. ‘It is found in the compassionate hearts and enterprising spirit of our citizens.'”) about how we are to lead our country out of the financial mess that George Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republican party led us into. Sadly these are the very ideas that got us into trouble in the first place. Look good on paper, sounds good in soundbites, but in reality detrimental to the health of a nation and it’s economy. The last time we had “free market” it led to the Great Depression. Here we are in the worst recession I can remember in the last fifty years in part caused by deregulation and corruption of government. This was led by the Republican party—the group that is supposed to represent smaller government and less spending. Instead we have the worst deficit in history, and a crumbling nation and world. Thanks, but no thanks to your ideas—they are old and do not work. They only sound like they do.
