we can only hope the president's most recent comments lauding small private enterprise and expressing a commitment to support it are the real truth behind his ironicaly equivocating public pronouncements. (we will let the english handle retorts to mr mittington romney for his ongoing public speaking nonsense).
my concern is that those behind the twin-headed, economy-obliterating hydra of republicrat and demican hegemony over our congress and chief executive's chair are learning nothing whatsoever while they play the "it's either us or them" game in complete refutation and denial of third, fourth and fifth parties' insistence that a return to private personal and economic liberty, sensibly regulated, (recalling sandy weill's recantation of his and his industry's glass-steagal blundering), and vastly reduced government bloat, (it's that bloat which is the anchor which drags down the economy--care to guess how many percent of would-be growth is hoovered up by our leviathan government boondoggle and disappears before it could ever be taxed?), is the right answer.
answer for yourself, why don't you: do you feel the patriot act and other executive orders are anathema to our founding principles? do you feel that our government spending and staggering deficits and resulting national debt comprise the number 1 threat to our sovereignty and strength? are you disgusted with how thoroughly mismanaged the entire process has been by the revolving door of republicrats and demicans in our seats of power?
sapere aude. choose better.
not for nothing, but think about something simple, like the supermarket soda aisle. anyone remember RC cola? anyone think it was any shortcoming to the flavor of RC cola that has resulted in coke and pepsi virtually taking over the entire soda aisle? or, perhaps, could it have been this nonsense notion that we needed to take sides in the war between the big 2 that caused it? and, then, think about bottled water. why do we have it? is it possibly because soda is bad nutrition AND bad public health policy? and why do you think coke and pepsi now have HUGE bottled water brands and operations.
if you favor bottled water, do you care if it's delivered by coke or pepsi? could it be that simply dropping out of the soda war and drinking bottled water has resulted in coke and pepsi using their giant bottling and distribution might in bringing more bottled water to everyone?
your vote for a candidate NOT named barry or mittington IS productive. especially if it doesn't win in november. votes not for D's and R's are of staggering power, and their message is heard even if the candidates can't win.
if you want D's and R's to do better, drink water. do the right thing.
