First and foremost, I am ecstatic that our country had the common sense to reject such a poorly planned solution to the financial crisis we now face. Throwing $700 billion dollars to the same companies who allowed this situation to develop is not only irresponsible, but insulting to United States working citizens and homeowners. I partially respect and support the recently proposed "common sense" plan, though I argue there is an substantially easier solution.

Before I began, I would like to make note that I am not a politician or economist. I am simply a United States working citizen that is concerned about my country's direction and future. The plan I am about to share with you, you may not like, though it is the undeniable truth.

The United States currently faces a financial crisis unlike any other in its past due to a series of events administered under the Bush Administration. I. In 1997, the United States began to print the "big face" $100 dollar bills in a failed attempt to keep American Dollars in the United States. It was believed that the majority of American Dollars were located off shore in various harboring countries. As a result, The U.S attempted to circulate this cash back into the United States by exchanging bank's inventory of "small face" bills with the new "big faces." Large sums of "small face" bills were no longer accepted.
ECONOMIC RESULT: This action significantly reduced the amount of cash flow and spending throughout the United States. Luckily, the U.S economy was able to recover fairly quickly by compensating for the loss of bills by producing more "big faces."

II. The single largest blow to the U.S economy was dealt in 2003 in reaction to 9/11. In attempt to alleviate "paper trails" for the benefit of national security, the United States deterred all cash purchases over the amount of $10,000 dollars by subjecting buyers to investigation under the IRS.
ECONOMIC RESULT: The majority of cash that formerly circulated through the U.S economy is now being held under mattresses, and in basements of houses because the spenders will be subject to penalty or prosecution by authorities if this money is spent. Because of this lack of cash circulation throughout the economy, the value of the U.S. dollar has dramatically decreased due to production compensation; banks no longer possess the funds necessary to finance businesses and homeowners; homeowners are foreclosing on mortgages.

III. The United States is calling for a $700 billion dollar bailout that will only result in $700 billion dollars of foreign debt on top of our already existing amount. I think its funny that a country with some of the wealthiest individuals in the world, is in foreign debt. If Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and a few others sat down and discussed ways to finance the United States, those individuals collectively could alleviate our foreign debt, and finance the $700 billion dollar bailout themselves by simply "reaching into their pockets" and writing a check. I find it completely asinine for a country to call its precious youth to give their lives in battle for the service and benefit of the United States, though we cannot call our "billionaire" citizens to help rebuild our country in the event of a financial "crisis".

Though our wealthiest citizens are not interested in improving our current economic condition, there are many "mattress millionaires" right here in the states, eager and willing to put billions of dollars back into the U.S. economy. I challenge anyone to research our economic status, and the value of the dollar prior to the implementation of the "$10,000 dollar cash deterrent," and I guarantee they will discover the antecedent to our financial crisis.

THE SOLUTION: The solution to the financial crisis is simple. If the government were to allow citizens to spend their money without fear of investigation, penalty, or prosecution, I guarantee there would be hundreds of thousands of homes purchased CASH tomorrow. There would be millions of automobiles purchased CASH tomorrow. There would be several CASH transactions purchased in full... Tomorrow, resulting in an economic boom in cash circulation. Within a few years max, this economy would have fully recovered, the U.S. dollar will be back to its previous currency rate, and our country will once again be a world leader and power house.

I would like to explain that I understand the importance of national security (especially in times such as now) and I am an advocate of any government plans to help deter or prevent any further terrorist attacks. I am not a wealthy or upper- class citizen. I do not have a billion dollars stashed in my mattress. I am a working- class citizen. I work eight hours plus every day just to pay my bills and put food on the table. I struggle to put clothes on my daughter's back. I have a serious problem with giving $700 billion dollars to various corporate CEO's who's great- grandchildren are already financially secured, when I am struggling to put clothes on my daughter's back. I know what some may think of this plan and I fully understand the effects. We have to choose as Americans, to let various individuals with cash purchase homes and automobiles to help restore cash flow back within our economy, or prosecute them for spending it when they already have it anyway. We do not need to further put our country in hundreds of billions of dollars of debt when we currently have the resources to rebuild our economy ourselves.

Man, all you had to do was ASK to guest blog! :-)
