Get politicians out of the way

I agree that it is sad that our national economy is ailing, as stated in other letters. However, it is even sadder that too many voters think that our government is not doing enough about this problem, whereas the opposite is true.

It is exactly because our government is doing too much that is the cause of our ailing economy. And the more the government does, the worse the problem will get.

Beyond maintaining law and order, the government produces nothing but instead uses your money to cause disruption and interference. As all hard-working citizens know, it is the private sector that produces prosperity. The Democrat and Republican politicians are misleading the voters when they make false promises that they can “fix” the economy.

If we can get those politicians out of the way and cut back on government interference, then the private sector will spontaneously bring back the prosperity we all wish for.
