The Army Corps of Engineers said it couldn’t be done, but even if it could it would be cost prohibitive. So, their answer was essentially to just give up and don’t do anything. But, thankfully private industry doesn’t work that way. They are more motivated! They like a challenge. Fisher Industries took a second look at the project and said, “We can build that! And we can do it cheaper, faster and better than the government. Cheaper, faster and better? Well, that bold statement no doubt came as a shock to our liberal legislators, but that is in fact exactly what Fisher Industries did.
We all recognize their are some jobs, like maintaining an army or air force, that is best left to government. But, there a very few jobs where private industry could do it “cheaper, faster and better.” Have we forgotten, America was built on competition? Competition inspires creativity and entrepreneurs. That often leads to technological break-through’s that reduce cost and expedite production, not to mention creating great wealth.
Since the rise of liberalism within our government run educational system and all the socialist safety nets that followed, we’ve lost track of what an economic powerhouse America once was and could be again. Donald Trump recognized this with his slogan, “Make America Great Again.” Say what you want about Trump, but he got this one right. We were and should be, the world’s best at everything. There’s nothing to stop us except our own government bureaucracy and the ridiculous and costly socialism forced on us by know-nothing liberals.
The only reason China is nipping at our heels is because they were provided with our business models and when they weren’t, they stole them. The results of modelling their industry after America’s businesses has catapulted them into a level of wealth they’ve never had in their long history. We allowed that to happen and we must own it. Now we need to wake up to the damage we’ve caused and start fixing it, beginning in our schools. End the trash talk about America and lets start inspiring students by teaching them all the good that America has achieved through fair trade, capitalism and a righteous national pride that comes from a country united behind borders, language and culture.
Now this video from Fisher. Take a look at how things can be done when government gets out of the way!
