Well, we know for SURE that the candidates aren’t taking the economic problems we’re having seriously. Neither is the Fed, or the Government in general. The politicians will bail the rich, the banks and investment firms out before they’ll do ANYTHING to help families who are losing their homes… but they definitely want our campaign donations.
You can be sure that the politicians will handle YOUR money much worse than they’ll handle their own, with all the hypocrisy that we can stomach (or more), and how they’re handling their own is a disgrace already. “Better DONE than SAID.” All of the candidates are carrying BIG debt in their campaigns, pissing money for useless perks (like croissants and donuts) that they think will get them a vote or a little support.
Done, of course, at the expense of the ‘little guy.’ He had to go to court to FORCE her to pay. Imagine.
So, Clinton is carrying so much debt that people fear to do business with her. Obama is carrying a huge amount of campaign debt (read- unpaid bills aka ‘float’). Now, McCain is being ‘forced’ to take public money to STAY IN THE RACE WHEN HE IS FRONTRUNNER! These things are ‘government welfare’- an undeclared subsidy by the hardworking providers, the small business people, that must wait and wait for payment, with no benefit to themselves, when the government will only wait for their tax dollars provided YOU pay to them huge penalties and interest.
This is a pathetic snapshot of the continuing garbage that will be coming out of the mouths, and the financial policies, of any of these politicians if and when they take the “Oath” of Office.
Speaking from personal experience here: my father, a mechanic and small business owner, repaired delivery trucks for the postal service for years. The bills were NEVER paid in a timely manner and so, until they were, HE had to ‘float’ government expenses by paying labor, parts, overhead until the money came in. However, when the checks actually arrived, they BOUNCED! He kept at it for some time, believing in the government, believing in the system, until he was brought to the brink of total loss. Then he declined to renew the contract. It took him ages to finally be reimbursed and paid in full for necessary services provided. That was when (comparatively) the government had very little in the way of debt or deficit. This is the ‘off the books’ government subsidy that only the individual taxpayers really know about.
You’re TRUSTING these people with YOUR money, your KIDS future money, the condition of your country. Things are so precarious economically in this country that even formerly reliable regular people may no longer be able to pay their bills, their credit ratings becoming trashed. You could be forgiven for being wary about loaning to even those people in this environment…
Isn’t it INSANE to trust your money to people who have PROVEN themselves to be lavish and wasteful, irresponsible and mindless when spending America’s tax dollars?
Figures don’t lie, people. They may not tell the whole truth, but they do reveal something very important.
Ron Paul is the epitome of Clinton’s campaign ad: DONE rather than said. Not a PENNY of debt. Bills paid immediately. No one is afraid to do business with him.
He’s too much of a gentleman to say it (but I’m not): Candidates, ‘representatives’, WHERE ARE YOUR BRAINS?
