I stopped hiring once Pelosi started talking as Speaker, started cutting way back a year later as I saw her spending, and eliminated my last employee just after the 2008 election because the former junior US Senator Obama was passed on to our White House. I will not under any circumstance hire until January 21, 2013. If Romney is the nominee, then I will not hire until January 21, 2017. I am not supporting the economy beyond the minimum I need for my personal comfort until we have a decent conservative in the White House. Why not? Who is John Galt?
Note: I helped those employees I had to let go (with the exception of two who were not terrible productive) set up in business as my "competitors", and they are doing fairly well but without the stability that came with my company.
