Letter: Put money into the hands of workers

Published 9:05 am Wednesday, February 15, 2017

I hope for peace. For prosperity for all people. A government that cares and protects all of it’s people. A government that governs on the basis of science, reason and common sense. An inclusive and tolerant government for all people.

I view our country as if it were a chain. It is only as strong as its weakest link.

I believe in harnessing renewable energy. Solar power as a stimulus for the economy. Solar panels on businesses and homes manufactured in America. Installed by Americans. Closed factories with a new purpose.

I feel a cyber attack would, in effect, shut down the country and send it into a state of chaos and disorder within a very short amount of time. It’s a matter of national security. With less dependency on modern technology and computers, an energy infrastructure balanced with solar power could prove invaluable. This would be good for the environment and provide a long-lasting stimulus.

Think trickle-up economics. Putting money into the hands of the workers. They will undoubtedly spend it, thus stimulating the economy. Watch it boom!
