Beautiful Disaster

Yes it is a Kelly Clarkson song, but I am not talking about that. I am talking about the state of our economy.

Unemployment low and only getting lower, people are losing their homes at a faster rate than ever. Economists predict that we are in for another recession. People are panicking. It’s a real disaster out there.

Some may see this as an opportunity to jump out of the 50th story of their giant corporate building, but I see it differently.

It’s time for us to stray away from the corporate infrastructure that has been running and manipulating America, and go back to local businesses providing honest goods and services at honest prices. It’s time for people to work for themselves, or to share their dreams and aspirations with the world.

Let’s stop looking at the past with questions, and start looking to the future with answers. The local business renaissance is ahead of us, and the age of corporate control of the planet is coming to an end.

It’s time we started making our own decisions about what goods and services we want, and not letting conglomerate companies tell us what we want. For a country who claims to be democratic, sometimes it seems that certain decisions are made for us, and if we don’t want that decision, we are forced to spend an exponential amount of time and money to come up with our own. Time and money that most of us don’t have. wants to be the meeting place for this revolution. We want to be the place where consumers can go and find honest reliable business where it should be, at the top of the page. A place where a business’ credibility and punctuality directly relates to their page ranking. also wants to be the meeting place for businesses as well. A place where businesses can honestly display their business and have just as much pull as the people who pay millions a year to be where you should be on a search. A place where you can talk to other businesses and create relationships or just discuss new discoveries in certain industries.

The time for change is now! The age of being told what we want is over, and the age of telling them what we want is about to begin. It’s time to tell ourselves and the world that we are not the sheeple that run corporate America, but that we are the United States of America that believes in honesty and sincerity. It’s time to make this disaster beautiful.
