The Jobless Numbers are Misleading

Yesterday the new job numbers came out that show virtually ALL of the 431,000 "new jobs" that were created last month were actually temporary jobs with the U.S. Census.
The U.S. Census hired 411,000 new tax payer funded employees, which left a mere 20,000 added by the private sector. This is significantly lower than the 180,000 predicted by the "experts" earlier this month.
President Obama and Vice President Biden have continually sounded off about how effective the stimulus packages have been in aiding our ailing economy. All the bailouts have done is grow the size of an inefficient government that produces nothing, but consumes much.
The only lasting economic stimulus plan will be one which encourages the private sector to expand their businesses. If we lower taxes and decrease the stringent regulations on businesses, the entrepreneurial spirit that is part of every American's DNA will once again seize this nation and recovery will be assured.
We don't need government and their "too-big-to-fail" mentality. We need people who will be accountable to the voters who put them in office and will stop trying to enhance their resumes or line their pockets. Let's get rid of all the people in Washington that are responsible for this mess and replace them with honest patriots who will stop lying to the American people.
Vote for me, Dave Evans, on August 5th.
