You Elect McCain And You Get What You Deserve

I was reading Financial Armageddon and it was a paragraph buried deep that got my attention.

"All things being equal, the limping economy should favor Obama. While McCain has taken pains to distance himself from the Bush administration, he has heartily embraced the most significant component of Bush's economic legacy: the tax cuts. "

I personally can't find an ounce of good in Bush's presidency and he has chased policy that American youth will never stop paying for.  IMHO he has destroyed America's future with his unprecedented love affair with unsustainable debt.  We had a Premier in Canada name Trudeau that destroyed Canada's economics.  Our economy was sluggish for years and our birth rate plummetted as young people were hit with stagnate low wages and a high cost of living. 

Ask me the degree of inequity in the economy that I feel that this past year is the first year that my annual wages, with two degrees, surpassed my high school educated grandfather's wages at retirement more than 20 years ago.  This was all about paying for the excess of Trudeau.  Indeed, this is also the first year that my wages passed what his retirement income was when he passed away about 10 years go.

So, Bush has already done enormous damage and that's the $hit that McCain embraces?  Elect this idiot and I predict America goes Zimbabwe.   

Tax cuts when the bills aren't being paid are tax deferrals to children and grandchildren.  Bush is the biggest destroyer of economic future in America's history and McCain embraces that part of his legacy...

Thank god America doesn't have a communist system.  Can you imagine where we'd be with eight more years of Bush and his cronies?  Someday, China will have its own 'Scrub', besides Mao, and it will really have to think long and hard about its political system.

DWOT Read the book My RIch DAD my Poor father.

All things are not equal, and the cost of thinking Obama would be a change for good, will only  bring change ~ that being instead of having dollar bills in your wallet you will be only left the coins of change that Obama unproven ~~ corruptible self ~~ would produce.

Some positives of the Bush years:

The hanging  death of Saddam Hussein at his own peoples hands, and  the death of his boys who were vicious monsters who would drive around the country and crash weddings where they would kill the groom and his family and rape his bride.

The tax cuts, thinking that the government wisely spends its citizens money is a joke, the less they have the better it is for everyone ~ that being the less the government takes and the more it allows its people to keep.

Lets not forget the sucessful ouster and defeat of Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan. The USSR was unsucessful in Afghanistan !!!! Also lets remember that this snake (BINNY Laden) could have been killed by the Democrats before 9-11 had BIll Clinton not been too busy getting his knob polished to accept the offering of delivering Osama to the US  by the taliban after he bombed the US embassies in Africa, blew a hole in the USS Cole, and declared his holy war against the christian world !!!!!

But some people see what they wanna see and believe what they wanna believe. I have degrees too, but the ones from the real world outside from the Universities have served me much better.

dwot - so you think Obama will be any better? He and McCain aren't very different, really. They are both for government spending and war. Main differences: he's a better speaker and he is likely to be corrupt (not inept as was GW, but seriously corrupt). His old pal Tony Rezko got sent to some long prison time just a week or two ago. He cut his teeth in Chicago, Illinois -- one of the most corrupt cities in the USA.

Of course, politicians are always corrupt. The mark of a successful society is that it can continue to function despite the effects of its ruling oligarchy.

As to what Bush did that was good, I would have to argue appointing Roberts and Alito. They are two justices that seem to understand property rights (and voted correctly in Kelo, for example).

Of couse, I should add that in McCain people would be getting a horrible womanizer who cares for no one but himself and his own political ambitions. The guy's a slut and a /b/-tard (I am sorry if you actually understand that reference). And if you are one of those fools who says that private morals have no bearing on public life, well, you are wrong. For example, infidelity is correlated with theft and fraud.

We can all hate taxes, but elected officials have the responibility to  treat us like whiny children over them.  They have to be paid and they are far cheaper if they are paid as you go rather than deferring them.  Paying as you go also ensures that future generations can have some kind of lifestyle rather than being over burdened with the excesses of this generation.

Also, if you require that taxes have to match expenses and future liabilities, then people begin to ask for less when they realise everything they ask for increases their taxes.

Amen to that, sister!

It's only a matter of time before "bread and circuses" destroy what's left of America, just as it did the Roman Empire 1600 years ago. It was either Plato or Socrates that wrote something akin to the following: "Democracy cannot function in the long term because people will vote themselves luxuries today at the expense of their freedom tomorrow."

We have already seen this in the Reagan era (huge deficits were run up, our first TRILLION dollar deficit), and when Bush Sr. tried to continue the legacy of Uncle Ronnie's "free" tax cuts, we know where that got him -- a flagging economy with many services being cut and a nasty recession anyway. It took the latter half of his presidency and all of Clinton's 8 years to clean up this financial mess. And now the idiots want us to vote in another "No Tax and Spend" Republican? Well, if we did, we'd be the idiots. As the inept Dumbya once said, "Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."

Maybe the rest of you are too young to remember or understand this fine point, but it ain't pretty. As simply put: you cannot feed yourself with loan interest. Money spent on interest comes directly off the top; it gets you nothing now because you've already had "it" in the past. Pay now for what you can afford, live within your means, pay down your debts -- that's the recipe for a True Conservative. Overspending (just as is under-taxing) is a recipe for hardship at some point down the road.

I think that just Obama alone is more fiscally conservative that the entire Republican party.  Thanks for calling attention to this insanity that has taken over parts of this country that spend their days doing nothing but reading Drudge and listening to Rush and Hannity.

I can't believe that people can argue with raising taxes to cover spending.  That concept alone is way more important than raising or lowing spending.
