Country is based on free market

After reading R. Schuck’s opinion on the Sept. 26 op-ed page, I was confused what point was trying to be made.

One thing was pretty clear is that this person hated “rich” people and was willing to judge the “rich” on their “greedy ways.”

The other observation was that our current governor was trying to take away “collective bargaining rights.”

Let’s address that statement. I read and reread our country’s “Bill of Rights” and could find that “right” anywhere. Our country is based on a free market.

The sweat also comes from the small business owners who are not afraid to work 60-70 hours a week to keep their businesses running.

These business people whether tree trimmers, painters or shop owners don’t have highly paid “rich” lobbyists or unions schlepping for them in Washington. To place people into a class is dividing America.

Since R. Schuck brought religion into the opinion, I believe we are all equal in God’s eye. “Love your neighbor as yourself” was a quote used by R. Schuck. Because of a failed stimulus policy, I am loving my neighbor all the way to the west coast, and will be for years to come.

Just look at our national debt. Weigh the facts over the last years. Gas prices are up 100 percent. Why? Food prices have grown 10-30 percent and still rising. Why? Unemployment is about 8 percent Why?

Health care costs are rising. Clothing prices are up. The housing market is a shamble and nearly half our citizens have to accept food stamps. Why?

And our government is still spending money like they earned it.

One thing I do agree with R. Schuck on is “Ohio does have a hugh responsibility.” Take the time to consider the facts and why they are the facts.

Vote to change policies. Policies change the facts.
