Don't Bail Them Out!
I read this yesterday and felt I needed to post it, because it says exactly what I feel. Americans are uninformed, unintelligent, simpletons. I know it's harsh but it was the only conclusion I could come to after reading that most Americans blamed the Republicans for the state of the economy. I have taken this excerpt from Neal Boortz' blog.
"According to a poll conducted by CNN, Americans blame Republicans over Democrats for the financial crisis by a 2-to-1 margin. That means that twice as many people out there are playing this "blame the current administration" game. Ahhhh ... the brilliance of the American voters. It is really no surprise if you consider where most people get their information– Entertainment Tonight. It is easy to sit back and just blame the Republicans, rather than trying to understand how we have gotten to this point. Look, folks, I'm not saying that the Republicans didn't have a hand in this ... but Barack Obama has crept back up in the polls to take the lead over John McCain, and you don't think this has anything to do with the economy?
And just who was it that killed a Freddie and Fannie reform bill a few years ago? Why, that would be Democrats. And who was it that was saying everything was cool with Freddie and Fannie? Barney Frank; who is not, by the way, a Republican. And who has been pushing lenders to make loans to unqualified borrowers for two decades? Democrats again. Still, the message doesn't get out. Could that possibly be because of the media love affair with The Chosen One?
Just yesterday, Hillary Clinton said that Barack Obama "is best suited to straighten out the country's economic problems." Question ... what in the wide wide world of balance sheets is she basing this on? What makes Hillary so sure that Barack Obama is the best candidate to handle the economy? What has he ever handled in his entire life? (Wait, don't answer that!) This is coming from a woman who said that "once we get through this immediate crisis," the country should look at some Great Depression-era type of governmental entity to deal with it. I'll tell you what came out of Great Depression politics ... big government. Lots of government. Government dependency.
This is exactly what the Democrats want. They are viewing this entire debacle as a golden opportunity to increase the size of government and expand dependency. Now is the time for you to rely on their party – and their savior, Barack Obama – to lead you out of this crisis and right onto the path of greater government dependency. And it all comes down to one thing, and that is power."
* Dr. Ron Paul is a man America would be fortunate to have in the White House. The folks at the Heritage Foundation have it right. I posted this article yesterday, but it bears repeating...our elected officials should fight for us.
* Mrs. Hillary Clinton is a woman we should be terrified to have in office.
Call your Congressmen and let them know that we will not stand for the bailout...it is a perversion of our system and it should be killed. We are free market capitalists, not European Marxists.
