I watched Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech and I am still not impressed. How is he going to create 12 million jobs? Presidents, no matter what party, do not create jobs.
Businesses and entrepreneurs create jobs, not government. Government tries to do this through tax credits and throwing money at a problem.
The government has to make it easier for businesses to take the risk of filling supply and demand. What would help is a simpler tax code. There are too many unknowns for a business. They will sit out and wait until conditions improve, waiting for an opportunity to make a profit. Economics is not charity; it is filling a need or a want with the risk taker getting rewarded potential profit.
Romney said a way to create jobs is becoming energy independent by 2018. This would be the middle of his next term. Romney we cannot wait this long and the American people are getting tired of promises that are always over the horizon. We need change now; not six years down the road.
I was not inspired by his speech like I was by other past candidates. The time for promises is over. We need action on this fiscal house because it is becoming, or is, a house of cards built on a crumbling foundation and could soon come to a crash.
