You need good health, education and job

Work: A child can do it — mow grass, shovel snow, tend the garden — and get paid doing it. This will give them a little spending money. It will train them to hold a job. To prepare them to work on the job 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year. For this you must get enough money to live on. This is what America is all about: work, jobs, pay. Anything less and our work turns to slavery. When this is done right, America will be a world leader. There is no reason to put a cap on payments to Social Security. The more you pay, the better it will be for all. Money is like the blood in our bodies, it must flow all the time, to all extremities, or we will lose them. To be a good American you need good health, a good education and a good job.
