Across the lake I have an opinion. I was listening to the News and overheard Shumlin had just came back from an overseas trip to try and bring I believe investment into Vermont.
I believe this is a huge part of what is wrong with not only Vermont but rather the United States and I am sure New York State as well.
In my opinion, and my belief that these politicians need to support small business to help them grow and try and create more local UNITED STATES companies.
There are so many people that might have an idea or product or talent where they would love to start a small business and make or create a product all across the United States.
These are the people that need to be supported.
Right from high school to college promote business ownership. Take your talent whether you are a mechanic, computer repair person, know how to grow grapes, produce wine, want to start a farm, become a doctor, lawyer, school teacher.
Start your own business. Rather than working for a foreign owned company that doesn't stay here long.
Open your own company.
Become a PROUD AMERICAN OWNED, OPERATED, PRODUCT MADE AND PRODUCED in the UNITED STATES company.
We do not need the help of overseas companies and investors.
We need the help of our own to support, buy, produce and support United States owned, produced products.
Stop sending out jobs to Mexico, China or Canada.
Let's start making Jelly Beans in the United States. Let's start growing produce in the United States. Parts for those washer and dryers in the United States. Children's educational toys in the United States.
If we all have a part this will make our Country stronger and what this country was founded on.
Farms, small business, Ma & Pa stores, laborers. Even if we have to barter our services and products to get started.
Let's be PROUD TO BE AMERICANS!
