Other nations may have more people than we have and they may have more money with which to enhance their economy. Even more education. But other countries don’t have something we have, which is freedom. In our country, we can still start out in a business of our own and make a success of it.
In the past, we’ve invented many things but, rather than build and sell them ourselves, we have allowed other countries to take over. As examples, I cite photographic products, phones, television, computers, and autos. Shouldn’t we invent and then lead the world in their production?
All our people need is a little help. I propose our government sponsor a contest for innovative products we can invent and sell throughout the world. This is our special talent. I believe we are the most innovation people on earth. At present, we might have the ideas for real break-throughs but not the funds to develop them
The contest would be open to anyone in our country. In a form a person might state his or her idea for a product and what it would be used for. The person might also tell how the product is needed by everyone and how it would benefit them. The contest would be judged and all winners would be assisted in actually producing their product. There would not be a single winner but many. I think this would lead to an avalanche of new products. With these we might find another product like to rival the computer in utility, or the airplane, we might find alternative sources of power, a new way to produce food, space travel, etc. There is no end to what could be seen if our innovative genius is unleashed.
