For those who believe in a very limited government, there is a belief that government should not be telling us what to do or how to live our lives. But that doesn’t mean society would be lawless and chaotic where everyone just does what they please at the expense of others.
Let’s be real: America’s economy is in the tank. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist (or economist) to figure that one out. Heck, you just have to set foot in a grocery store! But, dire as our situation is, it’s still not a recession… At least, not according to the “experts.” Never mind that our economy has experienced two straight quarters of negative economic growth. (Until about last week, this was the literal definition of a recession.) The thing is, recessions aren’t so good for politicians. Especially not in a big election year. So, rather than addressing the root causes of our horrible economy, our politicians are doing what they do best: changing the terms. That said, it’s no surprise that Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is now claiming we’re not in a recession: she says we’re just in a “period of transition in which growth is slowing.”
