Consumer Confidence / Entrepreneurial Spirit

America Is Exceptional! Leadership, values, ethics, entrepreneurship, financial strength and national defense have made our country great and a bastion of hope for the rest of the world. It’s time to stand up for what we know that has made our country great so that we can Restore America’s Greatness and continue to be the country that everyone looks up to and wants to emulate.

The freedom to innovate helped make this country great. The free-market economy encourages people to dream big and spurs creativity. The US rose to international prominence because of the entrepreneurial spirit of Americans. Our economic recovery depends on remembering what made us great in the first place. America's entrepreneurial spirit has raised the standard of living not only in our country but for billions of people throughout the world. Americas working hard to get ahead drive the train powering prosperity. Technological and economic progress comes from entrepreneurs and ordinary people working hard, having a vision, and being determined to see their dreams become reality; it does not come from government. Government does not create wealth; it consumes wealth. Increased regulation and higher taxes stifle the entrepreneurial spirit of our citizens. Being able to enjoy the fruits of one's' creativity and labor is one of the main motivations to be creative and work hard. Government is not entitled to greater shares of workers' incomes or to further the welfare state. Our middle class is shrinking, unemployment is rising, and public confidence is low. Government's primary role should be to protect our country and preserve the conditions necessary for entrepreneurship and professional self-reliance by ensuring the rule of law.

We need to stay motivated, keep a positive attitude, and help America remain competitive in this global world. What we all have in common is a strong belief that America is exceptional and our "best days" are ahead of us.
