Letter | Our freedoms as applied to the economy have slowly been taken
Dec. 23, 1913. Note this date as the beginning of the end of our free market here in the United States.
From that day onward our freedoms as applied to the economy have slowly been taken from us.
Greedy politicians and bumbling bureaucrats have saved the wrong companies, rewarded dishonesty and corruption, kept interest rates too low for the saver and too high at times for the consumer; never kept us from recession, depression and inflation; or helped the saver with adequate interest rates.
The government’s only wish is to control the economy for their friends, and to bail out contributors, friends and family.
This of course has resulted in poor, overpriced consumer products; higher taxes to pay off the rich and influential; and a monopolistic type economy where prices are fixed and supply is limited.
All this while keeping wages in check causing the middle class to fade away.
