What I'm Thankful For – Free Markets

thankfulcarvedpumpkinwhiteTis the season to think thankful thoughts, consider our blessings, bring loved ones close, and whatever else you like to do for the holidays. As a fellow who communicates for a living, I think it a grand idea to share some of what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday – besides Donny Osmond making the finals of Dancing with the Stars.  From my entrepreneurial viewpoint I’m thankful for:

  • Free Markets where new business ideas find fertile ground to grow
  • Brave entrepreneurs who venture into the darkness to bring innovations to life
  • Intrepid investors who risk it all on brave entrepreneurial startups with great ideas
  • Government that stays out of the way of free markets and supports the traditional family as the keystone
  • Private run enterprises that create jobs. Politicians who understand that the private sector creates the jobs
  • Private sector healthcare run by companies who seek to build business on free market principles
  • Men and women who serve in the military to pay the price of freedom
  • The right to vote in a free nation (so far)
  • The opportunity to take responsibility for my actions and not blame others
  • For great immigrants who sign the guest registry first, then show us how to seize the American dream
  • A Constitution who’s intent is to protect religious expression from government, not visa versa
  • Great clients that trust PilmerPR to offer sound Public Relations and Communications counsel
  • My wife of 26 years and three terrific offspring!

What are you thankful for?
