It was one line in Reuters that started me thinking……
Here it is….
The results of the monthly poll – in which a majority of voters agreed that the economy is the most important problem facing the United States – suggest that the Obama campaign’s efforts to paint Romney as being out of touch with the concerns of middle-class Americans could be preventing the Republican from gaining momentum in the race.
Now I will put on my college professors hat here and guide you through this…..
What is the prime message of this piece?
The prime message is that this election is up to which ever party or candidate can influence the American people to vote his way……..
Is that the right way or wrong way our politics should be decided; like a sporting event where one side or the other outperforms the competition?
Ok, then how should an election be decided?
By the facts. By how things will transpire if one candidate (over the other candidate) gets elected. That is how elections should be decided. Take Lincoln- McClellan … should we finish the war, or stop the war? Take Roosevelt and Wilkie…. should we finish the war, or change horses in the middle of a stream? Take Nixon- McGovern. Should we finish the war, or end it?
The election was over issues. Both candidates were considered flawed by large number of voters, but the elections decided the future course pursued by the nation.
At stake in this 2012 election, is determining who is going to pay our bills. THAT is this nations WWIII.. Our entire future is at stake, and how we decide who pays the bills will determine whether this nation continues having other nations cater to OUR needs, or whether we will have to start working around THEIRS……
So who IS going to pay this nation’s bills… The rich? or every one else?
And no one is talking about it….. Why?
It should be the lead story on all three networks M-F 6:30 and 11…. It should be on the front page of every paper in Delaware… It isn’t….
Why is it being ignored? Because the media doesn’t want to face the truth….
What is that truth?
The truth is that corporate profits alone, could reduce the entire national debt (including entitlements) to zero in two and a half years…. It’s math.
And the fact that is not even discussed, but buried on a foreign news source deep within the internet, just goes to show that something is very wrong with America.
Does anyone out there know that this past week, US employers have hired more workers than in the past 5 months, yet unemployment ticked upward from 8.2 to 8.3 percent because of the Tea Party Republicans firing of federal workers just before the election to keep their promise to slash and burn the Federal Government?
Of course you don’t! Because you are so worried over the mechanizations of political maneuvering that you can’t see facts that hit you in the eye.
Something is very wrong with America.
