Quit scattering our money abroad

There has been much written and much said about the present state of the economy. However, those who write often see the present status as being caused by the present Obama administration. Truth be told, those who are speaking out should revisit the past administration.

President Bush got the United States involved in a war in Iraq that cost billions to fight daily. He then allowed outsourcing to escalate, causing jobs to be sent overseas. Again, this caused a deep unemployment surge. President Obama inherited this mess, and Republicans sit back and watched simply because many Republicans are racially motivated because of their ideology.

I would like to offer a simple solution to our economic woes: Repeal laws allowing outsourcing, and end our military involvement in other countries. These two simple steps would create jobs and fuel the economy with billions of dollars. We can pay off our debt to China, and again Americans can rejoice and be happy. God bless America!
