Mom Stay At Home

Steve Coerper

Was the peace and safety of Leave It To Beaver really such a bad thing?

Unfortunately, many of us can no longer remember – perhaps never knew – a world where Moms stay at home. Women could work outside the home if they chose to do so, but had the freedom to stay home and raise their children. Now, husbands and wives often must both toil at jobs outside the home for the major portion of their waking hours while their children are in school or daycare facilities, being raised by strangers or being pacified by television while their childhood years slip away. How can we change things to let mom stay at home?

It didn’t used to be this way, and it doesn’t have to be. This model for raising the next generation is a failure, unless the only object is to raise a generation of docile and compliant worker-bees for the Federal plantation. We need to let mom stay at home.

Our families are being raked over the coals by a system that extracts so much from working people that it takes two full-time incomes, or more, just to pay for the basics and survive. We need to make a change.

Electing the right politicians won’t work, nor will getting a better education and a higher-paying job. Politicians are well-insulated from the grueling reality the rest of us must endure. They won’t significantly change a system that takes good care of them. And we all know that the system takes more from you as your pay increases – tax upon tax upon tax. You really can’t make friends with an alligator when the alligator is intent on eating you.

What we propose is a two-pronged strategy: highly-leveraged residual income that can be acquired and enhanced while working from home, and protection from a confiscatory taxation system that properly has no interest in you or your earnings. This will let mom stay at home if she so chooses – able to participate more fully in her children’s lives.
