Look who candidate Alex Sink has given big bucks to!

See Alex Sink ponies up to Charlie Crist campaign

"Campaign finance reports show that on Jan. 31, Sink wrote a $1,000 check to Crist."

So now, there is no question that Alex Sink not only supports Charlie Crist, she is actually willing to finance Charlie’s election campaign. The question is, should Floridians be as enthusiastic as Alex Sink is to see Charlie Crist get elected?

Let us recall what Charlie Crist stands for:

Are we to forget when Charlie Crist in 2009, greeted Obama’s trip to Florida with the infamous BIG HUG?

Are we to forget that Mr. Crist never changed his respect and admiration for Obama, even when we were learning we could not keep our health insurance plans or doctors, and when he gave Obama an even more AFFECTIONATE HUG in 2012?

Does this not establish Charlie Crist’s full support for Obama’s policies, especially Obamacare? See: Charlie Crist loves Obamacare; and Republican Party of FL loves that

”Despite some chatter Charlie Crist would run from Obamacare as it flounders, he's fully embracing it as he runs for governor as a Democrat.”

Does Alex Sink’s large contribution to Charlie Crist not prove she’s also a fan of Obamacare which impinges upon every American Citizen’s fundamental right to make their own medical and health care decisions and choices? Obamacare was never about helping the poor and needy with affordable health insurance. It was always about nationalizing America’s entire health care delivery system and putting political appointees between you and your doctor, not to mention assigning what doctors you may or may not have.

And what are some of Obama’s other policies which Charlie approves of and Alex Sink apparently agrees with by financing Christ’s candidacy? Well, one important policy Crist apparently agrees with is Obama’s investment in green energy, which we all have learned is a sophisticated money laundering operation in which hard working people’s paychecks are taxed away and redistributed to Obama’s pals running a green energy swindling operation. Are we to forget the billions upon billions taxed away from hard working people which were redistributed as follows?

• Beacon Power Corp: Received $43 million in federal loan guaranteed in 2009 and also received $29 million in PA grants – Bankrupt in October 2011

• Ener1 (parent company of EnerDel): Received $118.5 million in federal loan guarantees — Bankrupt in January 2012 – has since exited bankruptcy

• Evergreen Solar: Received $58 million in MA loan guarantees (an undisclosed portion sourced from federal ARRA block grant) — Bankrupt in August 2011 with $485.6 million in debt

• Solyndra: Received $535 million in federal loan guarantees in 2009 and $25.1 million in CA tax credit — Bankrupt in August 2011

• SpectraWatt: Received $500,000 in federal loan guarantees in 2009 — Bankrupt in August 2011

• Babcock and Brown: Received $178 million in federal grants in December 2009 (4 months after it went bust) – Bankrupt in early 2009

• Mountain Plaza Inc.: Received $424,000 in federal grants through TN Department of Transportation in 2009 — Bankrupt in 2003 and again in June 2010

• Solar Trust of America (parent company: Solar Millennium): Received $2.1 billion loan guarantee in April 2011 – Bankrupt in April 2012
Other Subsidized Green Energy Companies in decline:

• A123: Received $300 million in federal grants and $135 million in MI grants — Declining orders and have forced multiple layoffs

• Amonix, Inc.: Received $5.9 million in federal tax credits in 2009 through ARRA — Laid off 2/3 of work force

• First Solar: Received $3 billion in federal loan guarantees — Biggest S&P loser in 2011, CEO fired

• Fisker Automotive: $529 million in federal loan guarantees — Multiple 2012 sales prediction downgrades for first car release, delivery and cash flow troubles; Assembling cars in Finland

• Johnson Controls: Received $299 million in federal grants in 2009 — Low demand caused cancellation of a new factory, operating at half capacity

• Nevada Geothermal: Received $98.5 million in federal loan guarantees in 2009 — Defaulting on long-term debt obligations, 85% drop in stock value

• Sun Power: Received $1.2 billion in federal loan guarantees — Debt exceeds assets; French oil company took over last fall

• Abound Solar: Received $400 million in federal loans in 2012 — ½ work force laid off

• BrightSource Energy: $1.6 billion federal loan approved in April 2012 – loan obtained through political connections with the administration; absent the loan, Brightsource’s solar power purchase would have fallen through.

And who got these billions? See: 80% of Obama green jobs money goes to Obama donors.

Are we to believe that Alex Sink, if elected, would not support Obama in a second round of green energy “investments” carefully tailored to redistribute the paychecks of hard working Americans into the pockets of Washington’s politically motivated donors?


"To lay with one hand the power of the government on the property of the citizen [a working person’s earned wage] and with the other to bestow upon favored individuals, to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes [Obama’s Solyndra, Chevy Volt, Fisker, Exelon swindling deals, and now his “promise zones”] is none the less a robbery because it is done under forms of law and called taxation."____ Savings and Loan Assc. v. Topeka,(1875).
