Despite what some believe I dont think one political party is to blame for our economy, its just a cycle that I hope we get through very soon. Until 4 years ago I had a great job that paid decent wages considering I dont have a college degree. When that job went away I did my best to make a few bucks raising horses and exotic animals. The exotics were a hot commodity for a while until the bottom fell out then you couldnt give them away. Eventually lost the farm, my butt, and my family in the process. Tried very hard to find any job locally but it didnt happen. I finally relocated to New york state and now have a job that only pays half of what I was making, and I am one of the very few American employees with the company. From what I see and have been told from the labor perspective in this area most white americans dont want to work the heavy labor jobs thats why we have so many spanish speaking immigrants performing these tasks. The tough times arent over, but there are jobs available if folks are willing to forget their pride and get back to working for a living. They may not be great jobs but if they pay the bills and let a person support themselves and their families is what is important to me
