Jobs needed to rebuild country

To the Editor:

Many years ago, my mother told me a story of a shoemaker’s children who had no shoes. It is now obvious our honorary, highly-esteemed and wealthy congressmen senators are telling us we have no money and they must close down our government.

Just yesterday, our nation was the wealthiest in the world. Immigrants were flocking here with their families for all the amazing opportunities. We had the largest, most powerful, most modern Army, Navy and Air Corps in the world. We were able to fight wars all over the Mideast and give away $12 billion to buy friends and allies all over the world. How is it possible that today we must close our government down for lack of money?

It’s obvious that our honorary, highly-esteemed senators were never given a job description. No one told them what they were supposed to be doing. Republicans tell them “do it our way.” Democrats tell them “do it our way.”

Even thought our government is about 250 years old, there doesn’t seem to be a guide book, blueprint or even a “how to” book on the tremendous job of keeping a huge modern government from crashing in the trees. a modern government. They don’t seem to have any idea of the jobs they are supposed to be doing. They seem to either make their duties up as they go along, discover ways to appeal to the public so they can be reelected and simply receive their pay without actually doing anything to create a scandal.

What have our senators done for us lately? They’ve made us the policeman of the world, made us responsible for the nuclear safety of all the countries in the Mideast. We’ve had an embargo on Iran’s shipping for years, threatened to bomb Syria. What ain’t we got… we ain’t got jobs. Reagan said “it’s jobs stupid” or was it Clinton?

It’s obvious that there is only one way we will be able to make our nation strong and wealthy again. We must do everything in an all out struggle to rebuild our industry. We must wage an industrial war with all the energy, strength, dedication and finances that we so willing give up to fight a military war. Our national survival depends on it.
