It’s amazing how many people are upset right now about the future.  I am glad that people are getting upset, thats when things will start to change.  It’s like a big wakeup call.  I read this article the other day and thought it was pretty interesting.  I would like to share it with you.

 

Why We Need a Third Party

by Oliver DeMillesigned 3 217x300 Why We Need a Third Party

In the aftermath of the 2012 election, there have been numerous emails, posts, articles and blogs by business owners who say they are planning to sell or close their businesses, or just lay off enough workers that they can afford Obamacare for the employees who remain.

One summary listed the following announced layoffs—all attempts to deal with the new costs of Obamacare:

  • Welch Allyn, 275 layoffs
  • Stryker, 1170 layoffs
  • Boston Scientific, between 1200 and 1400 layoffs
  • Medtronic, 1000 layoffs
  • Smith and Nephew, 770 layoffs
  • Hill Rom, 200 layoffs
  • Kinetic Concepts, 427 layoffs
  • Coviden, 595 layoffs
  • Abbot Labs, 427 layoffs
  • St. June Medical, 300 layoffs

There are many, many others.

One email dated November 7, the day after the election, read:

“Time to sell our business. We can no longer afford to provide a living for 14 employees as soon we’re forced to pay for their healthcare. So sad, too bad. On to new ventures.”

It’s good to see people getting upset when they start to lose freedom.  It’s when they don’t get upset, you should worry.  Don’t think that someone else is gonna fix it though.  A great saying for us all to live by should be “If it is to be it’s up to me.”

 

thanks for reading

    It’s crazy what’s happening in the business world right now, but I’m confident that times like this will shake the citizens of this country out of their apathy. As long as we’re getting the truth out there to people, we’ll swing the tide back towards freedom.

    Steve, I came from a family of employees …. all hard working and dedicated, but I did not really know self employed or business owners. I have learned so much about what makes freedom ring. I have never felt pulled to one party or the other, but rather pulled to candidates who seemed the most forthright. I now see a candidate cannot accomplish anything next to what people committed to a cause can …. everything Oliver points out about the needs of a true American party makes so much sense … thank you for sharing.

    I love the concept of “if it’s to be it’s up to me”. Hopefully soon America can realize we cannot rely on other people to take care of us. Thanks for the article.
