John McCain, looking to gain support for his gas tax holiday, reached out to Hillary Clinton supporters in a stunning speech stimulating the lives of all the “bitter” voters of Pennsylvania. While most of the media focused on the bitter voter aspect of the McCain speech, I found it damning for the McCain campaign that his advisers believe his gas tax holiday is a winning argument. God help us if we have an administration that believes this idiotic economic policy will do anything more than severely damage the US economy.
Hillary announced that she plans to help finance the national debt with her personal funds, much like she’s financed her successful Presidential campaign! I’m not sure this is really the best idea, but the more I think about it… This is sounding pretty good. If she cares about our country this much, let her spend the money. Hillary 2008!
I’ll keep it really brief:
- Bring more attention to the “gas tax holiday”
- Point out how both of your opponents support it even though it would just put more money into the already fat pockets of oil companies
- Remind people that both Clinton and McCain support this ridiculous economic gimmick, and ask the public to decide who we think Clinton and McCain are really supporting
- Ask America if we want more of the same flat economy over the last 8 years with failed fiscal policy after failed fiscal policy
- Win handedly, so you are officially running against John McCain and then keep bringing up the fact that McCain supported this very, VERY bad economic gimmick
Free as a courtesy to democracy in America!
I have my fair share of critical remarks for economists in general. I’ve mentioned before that my econ professor a few years ago gave me a B on a paper where I theorized that constantly increasing energy prices would leader to inflation that could not be controlled by the Federal Reserve. He, like many economists, is misguided. That’s part of the reason I disliked my economics degree program. It was mostly a bunch of bologna.
However, there is one other segment of the public policy industry that is even more… well, they are just idiots when it comes to economics. This group is known as politicians, particularly presidential candidates. In an article today, Reuters reported that McCain and Clinton both support a “gasoline tax holiday“. The idea would be to suspend the federal tax on gasoline over the summer.
Folks, it doesn’t get much more idiotic than this! This would drive the demand of the gasoline up, while nothing would happen to the supply. The net result is a continued rise in gas prices, putting more money into the pockets of Exxon and friends (to give them even greater profits). Then gas prices would shoot up almost 20 cents instantly after Summer.
Obama’s points should have just shot up at least 10-20% since he didn’t support this moronic policy!
What do the Clintons and the Bushes have in common?
Besides having been the only two families to reside in the White House for the last 20 years, they have an additional quality that is unfolding in front of our eyes.
George W. Bush lost the 2000 popular vote, and it has been argued that he even lost the electoral vote if recounts in Florida were taken into account. There are thousands of articles, blogs, etc. about how the Bush family stole the election of 2000. Heck! There was even a movie about it.
It is amazing how history is prone to repeat itself when unchecked power is at play.
There is a lot of concern about the state of our economy, but I have an ingenious idea for solving a major economic drain in our economy for generations to come!
During the last 20 years, we’ve seen the rise and fall of our economy several times, but over all… We’re doing pretty well. We’ve seen the rise of entire industries like the Internet and alternative energy. And during these 20 years we’ve had only a Bush or Clinton in office.
Let’s just do away with the presidential election after we elect Hillary. We could then have Jeb be president for eight years. Then we can switch to Chelsea for eight years. Then another Bush. Back to the Clintons.
Think of all the money we will save on elections! The secret service will save money because they won’t have to protect guys like John McCain and Barrack Obama. That $40 million that Barrack received in March… Rather than wasting it on a needless presidential campaign, it could be spent on our products and services. $40 million in one month! Couldn’t *YOU* use an extra $40 million? He needlessly raised $32 million in January too.
Since the Bushes and Clintons are Democrats and Republicans, we still maintain our two party system just like we have over the last 20 years. It is utopian politics! We still have democracy because we have Congress. We still have a two party system. We just don’t have to worry about the president anymore. SWEET!
Hundreds of millions of dollars are wasted on presidential campaigns every 4 years. If we just stick with Clintons & Bushes, we’ll infuse a HUGE amount of cash into our economy by not wasting it on needless campaigns. Support American Royalty and vote for Clinton this November.
How many Families have been running the United States over the last 20 years?
I’ll give you a hint: It’s more than 1 and less than 3!
Folks, the real reason to be concerned with Hillary Clinton being president has nothing to do with what her policies may or may not be. For God’s sake, the first George Bush promised “no new taxes” and that sure didn’t happen!
Plane and simple… we’ve gone from a two party political system to a two family political system: The Bushes and The Clintons! What’s the point of having a democracy when we make ourselves a monarchy? Well, I guess biarchy would be more like it?
For the past 20 years, we’ve had the same two families at the head of this country. If you want to include the power that the first George Bush had as Vice President, make it 28 years. For me, that’s almost my entire life. And there are even talks about having Bush’s brother run in 2012. Gimme a break already!
Enough is enough. No more John Adams garbage. No more Clintons. No more Ws or HWs or any other Bush for that matter. We have a democracy here. Let’s start using it!
