Can politicians solve your problems?

During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks." "We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It's worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't even build a functioning web site. But this post is not a knock on democrats. Both sides have their "fair-share" of failures and false promises. More recently, the political debates don't talk about solutions for poverty they only talk about the candidates. This post is a stark reminder that NO ONE IS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU, nor can they. Example: In the last 8 years, our nations debt has doubled, the average American's income has declined, there is a federal deficit (which means more money is being spent than brought in.) There are more people on welfare than the whole population of Spain. There is NO Federal budget.

 Now is the time to build up yourself because our government clearly cannot even help themselves. How? Education, Paying off your debt, entrepreneurship/freelance work. If you are employed, show up earlier, work later and ask for a raise based on results. These are the elements that can help you be financially independent. And engaging in all of these elements doesn't need to be expensive. Until the political candidates talk about empowering us and promoting these topics mentioned above, both parties are operating under their own self interest. Do not look for the government to fix your problems. That is a long line. The person in the mirror is the one who can solve your problems.
