FYI...the stakes we face in 2012. Please ping others if you have a mind to.
From your lips to God's ears...amen!
Thanks for the ping!
"the soul...it must be broken...and the man is yours, you won't need a whip, he'll bring it to you and ask to be whipped...Make man feel small...kill his aspiration...kill integrity...you stop all incentive to....excellence...just say that reason is limited...suspend reason and...anything goes...not judgment but public polls...no individuality will be permitted...kill the individual."
-Ellsworth Tooheys speech, from Ayn Rands The Fountainhead
Not so fast...
I spoke with a commerical banker and via Dodd-Frank they are scared of writing loans because they do not know if they will violate regulations that haven't been written. So does it repealed ASAP? One would hope...
In another conversation with a noted American that I cannot name, we discussed "the turnaround". Again it may take time was their answer (and not investment advice here) those in on the front of it might do rather well if they are willing to take the risk.
Obama and company have so FUBAR'd so many sectors of the economy and the way even goverment operates, I am skeptical of a massive turnaround on a dime, and I don't think we should get peoples hopes up only to have them dashed and hammer Romney/Ryan in the mid-terms.
I am not skeptical of "Capital" going off strike after 1/21/2012 however....
Amen, my FRiend...that is precisely what they seek to accomplish by appealing to the worst traits of human nature to ensnare our citizens to their wretched shackels.
Agreed that it will take time...but if they jumpp start everything with energy in a big way, and quickly move to remove oppresive regulations and lower corporate taxes as they promise...I believe it will occur much more quickly than we otherwise might think. A LOT of businesses are sitting on investments and waiting to see if Obama goes away...if he does, and if Romney shows the signs of doing what he promises, they will open the coffers rapidly.
Amen to that...may His Grace and His arm be there to help us in this endeavor.
People here in America have no idea just how precarious their existence has become. No idea at all.
[Obama and company have so FUBAR’d so many sectors of the economy and the way even government operates, I am skeptical of a massive turnaround on a dime,]
It will take a decade(s) to recover, the economic numbers are just horrendous both here and globally. Japan, Europe, US are all bankrupt from Eurosocialism and Keynesianism.
Certainly Obama must go, but Romney is not a god.
It is curious to see John Huntsman on that list, since he is one of the featured speakers at the Democratic Convention this year.
The key to winning, as always, is to get your party base to TURN OUT TO VOTE for you. If you can do that you will almost always beat the other guy.
If you can't, you lose.
So, is there some reason Republicans should vote for a Democrat that we don't know about? Must be a secret here.
I am speaking of the ones who created the largest mid-term turnaround election in history in 2010.
The people who ensured that their Governor, who was doing exactly the opposite of what Obama prescribed, remained in office in Wisconsin by a larger majority than the elected him there in the 1st place.
Thoes people...those Americans.
In that case the base did turn out, but a whole bunch of people crossed over and voted against Carter who was messing up so bad that the impact was felt by all Americans...and most of them responded accordingly. Those folks who were democrats became known as the "Reagan Democrats".
As bad as Obama's record is. As many peope, even people who voted for him initially, as have been hurt by his policies and his refusal to not only back off away from them, but to double down on them after the 2010 elections...given that hurt that is being felt across the nation, I believe we have the chance to see the same thing happen in 2012.
Three months will tell us.
Excellent thread and thanks for the ping
Thank you very much Jeff! Excellent work from you, as always!
Not True. This was debunked quickly by Mark Levin and his daughter on Twitter.
