The Micromanagement of our Economy

Updated on September 10, 2019

Micromanaging our economy has become a way of life or at least it has been in the past. This activity or philosophy is or has been present not only in the federal government but state governments. Micromanaging anything is an activity which does not allow individuals and businesses to make their own decisions. We are a country where individuals took responsibility for their actions in our early beginning as a country but sadly today that has changed. Legislative activity at the state and federal government levels while some good decisions have been made others have not had this impression.

Government today is more in control of our lives and the decisions we make and it is increasing at a rate we have not seen in years. This must be reversed and the result of the recent mid-term elections is was a step in the right direction. Taking this first step surprised many individuals. We must insist that these individuals who we have put in office regardless of political party must get the message. We have another election in a little over a year. Recent activities at the federal level by some individuals need to have a stronger message sent to them through our votes as we did in 2016. Our country is doing great and we must make sure that it stays that way through our votes. .

The freedoms we have today are engrained in the Constitution but with the overreach of government at any level it is threatening these freedoms. Recently there have been changes with the reduction of federal regulations under the present administration and as a result our economy is booming not to mention the lowest unemployment rate in decades. This is great but the President can only do so much. It is up to Congress to see the light and stop micromanaging our economy. This takes place through legislation not to mention investigations which seem to go on forever.

Problems exist that need attention and both political parties need to work together to get the job for which they were elected done. It should not be about political philosophy but what is right for the people and the country. Too much time is spent on issues that the American people do not care about. Granted there are some issues which need to be tackled even though they may not be high on the list for the public. The attitude of some individuals running for office wants to take more control over our lives and the economy. Micromanagement should not be in place within our federal and state governments. We have a choice to make do we want control of our lives and decisions or do we want the government at any level make decisions for us.
