So the day that we have been counting down for 2 years is FINALLY upon us. I must admit, as a political junkie, I've been following this election closely and I'll be hosting another party to watch the results come in until the wee hours of the night.
I have only one comment on this day as it pertains to our core business - that of innovation. As an entrepreneur and a business owner, I am worried that the economy and innovation will be stifled should taxes be raised, which is almost a certainty with a threesome of Obama, Pilosi and Reed. Our country has always been the "land of opportunity" and if we continue to move toward larger government and higher taxes, innovators will have little incentive to work hard since uncle Sam will be taking more and more of the fruits of our labors. The spirit of innovation that has driven this country to be the best in the world is likely to be squelched, and we will become just like socialist Europe... on steady decline due to stagnant efforts in the area of innovation.
Just my thoughts,
