Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!

Can we get rid of the intractable partisan politicians and find a bipartisan group of politicians who will pledge to do what is best for American Workers? We need politicians who offer us a solution to the American Jobs Act.

We all agree that public infrastructure needs maintenance and buttressing. How much better would we all be with a wider and more robust broadband solution? Our roads and bridges need repair. We need to invest in wind, solar and other renewable energy sources. We need education support for American citizens to fill the jobs of the future.

Jobs, jobs, jobs.

Where are the jobs? The jobs are in manufacturing. We have to import solar and wind components because we do not have the manufacturing processes in place to meet the demand of new technology. We need to educate our people to be able to build the futures infrastructure. It is time to abandon ideological canards and move forward with the progress of America.

We can do anything we put our heart and souls into. We were the first on the moon. We should be the first in technological breakthroughs in renewable energy. We were the first to implement the internet. We need to be the first to bring that technology to its next evolution. We need to educate our citizens in the trades of technology.

We need to invest in our future. The late 1920’s and early 1930’s saw our country convulse in a spasm of deprivation. And we built ourselves out of that chasm to become the greatest economy in the world. We are that kind of country. Now we need those kinds of politicians. Do not vote for any politician who won’t tear up his signed pledge to Grover Norquist. Who is Grover Norquist anyway?

Why is a pledge to Grover Norquist more important than the Oath of Office?

To our politicians we need to say: “Bring us solutions, or go home! We do not need your ideological heresy. We need jobs! And, we need the jobs now!”
