BY RHONDA GLASS – Unbelievable – 95,000 more jobs lost in the month of September. The policies that U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye and U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono support continue to fail not only for America, but for Hawaii as well.
The only purpose the various bail outs and “stimulus” served was to pay back campaign supporters and an easy way to expand the Government; never waste a crisis.
We need jobs and the only way to make jobs happen is to get the government out of the way, just like under the Harding and Coolidge Administrations in the 1920s.
President Harding cut government spending and taxes by 50 percent at the beginning of our first depression in 1920.
Unemployment was 11.8 percent and within two years unemployment dropped to 1.8 percent. The history is out there folks and these government “Fat Cats” don’t care; they only care about their power.
As we witness our current Administration and Congress copying the failed government expansion policies during the Great Depression of 1930, private industry remains stagnate today because of these failed policies.
It was called “Great” because it lasted from 1930 to 1941 and only stopped due to World War II. Our economy slumped again in 1945 after the war with the returning soldiers. What sparked it again was our private industry and government cutting its spending.
Less government spending and less taxation is the answer; something that Senator Daniel Inouye and Representative Mazie Hirono don’t want you to know.
Please vote for John Willoughby, U.S. Congress and Cam Cavasso, U.S. Senate.
