Free enterprise, international economies, ballooning deficits
August 23, 2009
These matters are very topical for our political and free enterprise leaders. President Obama, Prime Minister Harper, Prime Minister Brown and other leaders are facing tremendous economic challenges.
While one may think these are matters isolated to 2009 and beyond, you may be interested in taking a few minutes to watch this excerpt from the 1980 Republican leadership debate between George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.
As we now all know, Reagan went on to defeat Bush and then Carter to become president. President Reagan embarked on a terrific agenda of tax cutting and free enterprise policies. They worked.
One can only hope that President Obama, presiding over one of the largest increases of government in history, reviews his history lessons and takes a second look at the direction he has selected.
