I just found the advertisement above while reading a political news/opinion website, and thought it was important to share. Read the letter and make your own judgment. I know that there is a feeling that Wall Street is the enemy, and that public companies need to pinch pennies, but as the letter says, the rhetoric that has come from many of our government leaders is in its own right, having a detrimental toll on the economy.
We cannot allow the flames of fear to be stocked by those in power to an already fearful country. Yes, times are bad, but we MUST have a government that puts out these fires, and encourages optimism, no matter how difficult the circumstances. I fear that if the trend of inciting fear continues, it won’t matter if the economy was going to recover naturally, or if the Trillions of dollars thrown at it would have worked, we won’t see the light of day.
Inform us. Educate us. Be real with us.
But instead of inciting the fear in us, help us to overcome that fear towards a brighter path.
Stop the rhetoric. Stop the fear.
