How much do you think the minimum wage should be????I am no political expert, but I will respond:
The Economy-- Let's be honest, the only real problem with the economy is actual paying jobs. People say, "Oh there are no jobs out there." There are jobs out there, IF you believe that $7.25 or $8.00 per hour is something that you can make a living on. You want to get people back to work; make it worth their while to go back to work with a legitimate wage. Why go back to work for $250 per week (after taxes and what not) when you can stay home, collect unemployment and make more money? I think people are spending; it may not be as much as they used to, but people are spending money. I am a firm believer that in terms of the economy, the one thing that really needs to be done is getting rid of all these "Illegals." Also, someone making $250,000 is NOT Middle Class Barack Obama. I am sorry to tell you. If you are making $250,000 per year, you are living VERY WELL!!!!!!
Terrorism-- It is one of those things that will NEVER go away. You aren't getting rid of it no matter how hard you try and it is a "war" that the United States is NEVER going to win.
Foreign Policy-- I think we spend too much money and too much time in foreign places. Democracy is NOT for everyone. If the Middle East wants to blow each other up, let 'em. I don't think we need to be isolated, but in many regards I believed a bunch of what Ron Paul said on this issue.
Finally, when the American people realize these idiots in Washington don't care about us and only care about spending money at our expense, the better off we will be. You aren't going to change them.
Should there be a minimum wage at all????
