Guest Editorial from a HS Junior on the Economy

Mr. Steinburg and Mr. Moore – I thought that you would enjoy reading this brief composition of mine. Thank you. 

Dear America,

Today you face a critical crossroads in your history. Will you continue along the path that you have maintained over the past four years or will you shift to real change? As your citizen, my life is a difficult one. I am a high school junior in a homeschool and receive little to no aid from the public school system that my parents’ tax money supports. Each day I awaken in the morning to feel less excited about my future as a young American. College tuition has skyrocketed and perhaps most importantly I have no guarantee of employment after I graduate. My Mom is a registered nurse and her unit has remained closed for the past couple of weeks leaving her without work. I am feeling the repercussions of your failed economy in my life.

America, you are a nation crafted on equal representation and free enterprise yet you allow your constitution to be circumvented by wily politicians in Washington D.C. Your founders have made it clear the path they wanted, so why have you digressed from this path of prosperity? Why must I be told by your government that I must buy health insurance when I come of age. America, I am only sixteen years old, but I realize that my future is a dismal one if you don’t expedite reform. Please return to your constitution. Please cramp down on government and let people like me thrive. Free Enterprise is the only system that has been evidenced to succeed. America, today you have a choice. Please stop taking my life down this path to certained failure. Lead the world like a beacon of hope and reform yourself; I know you can. You did when Ronald Reagan was elected President and you can do it again. If you do not, my generation and I will have to pay the price for the rest of our lives.

Love your faithful Citizen,
-Razi Lane
