Jim believes that free enterprise capitalism is the best system for our nation.  The efforts of millions of people have contributed to make the strongest richest most powerful nation in the world.  Albert Einstein called compound interest the 8th wonder of the world.  When money is invested and the interest is reinvested it can double in value in only eight years.  This is how the rich get rich, by using credit carefully, saving money, and investing it.  The opportinities to do this are great in America and that is why people come here.  To get a job and prosper.

Here are some examples of the power of investment.  Two sisters in Pasadena, California, Gene and Agnes, worked in the post office, saved their money, bought some real estate, bought annuities and insurance policies and left millions in their estate.  Bob bought a mutual fund for $2,000 in 1962.  He sold it in 1912 for $180,000,  90 times his investment.

During times of social and economic problems, it is good to have some insurance.  Governments have taken a large role in the insurance business especially in health and retirement.  The benefits are inferior to private insurance because there is no investment.  But politicians have learned that government benefits are easy to sell and give them political power.

Now it is becoming more difficult to invest for our selves because of the tax burden taking away the money we need to invest.

I propose that we invest the payroll taxes now designated for welfare in American business boosting the economy and providing financial security for the worker.  See the tab on social security for more details.

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Great blog!

    • My site was all video before this one and it flopped. This site is high traffic so I will stay with the format. It could be that a mixed content would work and I may try it. It does take more work.

  2. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

  3. Thank you, I’ve recently been looking for info approximately this subject for a while and yours is the greatest I have discovered till now. But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you positive about the source?
