The government’s intentions

Dear Sir

If you print a trillion dollars without increasing the supply of goods, inflation will hit hard. If you print a trillion dollars without more supply of goods, did the government intend inflation to hit hard?

If the government shuts down 45 percent of the production of many items, you’ll get a huge shortage of needed items. When you know a huge shortage is coming because of the government’s actions, and it purposefully does nothing to prevent it, month after month, until a crisis finally hits hard, did the government intend this crisis to happen?

If you cut police budgets, you will get more crime on the streets. If you intentionally cut police budgets, do you want more crime on the streets?

If you cut back the supply of oil, gas prices will increase. If the government intentionally cut back the supply of oil, did the government intend to drive gas prices upward?

Then the citizen gets into their vehicle and pays the increased gas prices and abusive levels of taxes to drive to the store, where they will be gouged and taxed again attempting to buy food and what is necessary for the family. Overpriced items are inflated because of profiteering and excessive fuel prices.

The Federal government is either stupidly mismanaged or intentionally challenging its citizenry. For what purpose? Climate change is here, and the cost of it is seen in floods, droughts and extreme weather. It is also seen in excessive taxes intended to make each of us change our ways. Most of us drive gas-operating vehicles, yet our governments intend to stop all production of such vehicles by 2030-2050, all the while EV are nowhere to be seen, bought or made. EV Batteries are still inefficient and EV technology is at its birth level still. Some say long-lasting EV units will develop over the next 30 years, and we the consumer are the guinea pigs that will be forced to buy inefficient vehicles for next few decades to come, until the manufacturers get it right.

The government has spent over a trillion dollars these past three years fighting the Pandemic, keeping us all safe. That was the governmental plan. Now we will all get to work overtime to pay this money back. Even if the present-day government falls and another takes power, the lowly citizen is responsible for paying off the nation’s debt over time.

Did the government intend to increase its power over us all by making us all partners in our nation’s indebtedness?

It seems the fingers of government are now in the pockets of every citizen, devising new and better ways of separating us from our rights, our dignity and our cash.
