To the Editor,
For me, the upcoming federal and state elections are about fundamental issues. Government spending outpaces revenue, the growth of well-paying jobs is anemic and government influence expands while individual freedom recedes. Democrats help us feel comfortable. With more regulations and increased taxes, well be fine. Theyre well-intended, and theyre wrong.
Were in a battle with the rest of the world for well-paying jobs. Those jobs are the key to our societys viability. More regulations and higher taxes inhibit people from starting businesses in a highly competitive environment where most startups fail. We need people in government who understand that.
Dan Gilbert, Weston
