"The budget should be balanced; the treasury should be refilled; public debt should be reduced; and the arrogance of public officials should be controlled." This is why I am voting for Romney........no wait, Gingrich. Which of these Republican candidates voiced this truism? Neither, this is a quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106 BC-43 BC, Roman politician and writer at the end of the great Roman Republic. The Roman Republic lasted 500 years, and "Crashed" for the same reasons that now Doom the great experiment in human Freedom and Knowledge, The United States of America.
Should anyone believe that the coming elections of 2012 will give birth to a renewal of moral and financial well being............ go back to watching the Kardashian wedding, and send your vote by mail....... Not to get off topic, but isn't it strange that the Democrats are so set against anyone having to present a photo ID before voting? The only logical reason for this is that having to prove one is a citizen and registered voter, would make it harder to cast illegal votes. I said, "make it harder".... not impossible. But we all know that Democrats only want to stop the racist discrimination on the poor by Republicans. Democrats are such Saints. And regardless if you vote for Romney or Gingrich, you will be voting for the complete destruction of this Republic. Read about the Roman Republic, and especially Cicero. Keep reading, this rant does get better.
Please don't be impressed by anything either of these "False Hopes", Romney, or Gingrich, say, because if anyone takes the time to check, it will be apparent that they voiced multiple conflicting statements at different times to different constituents. I know, I know, I am such a cynic; "These are good Americans doing their best to remove Obama, The Pretender, from office. The Republicans will get this Nation back on track and get Americans working again, and bring prestige to the U.S. dollar". Sure they will. Here is the problem with this scenario: The U.S. debt, National and Personal, is mathematically impossible to get to a place where the dollar is solvent........... even if the tax rate becomes 100% on all earnings and investments.
I checked the US Total Debt today, December 15, 2011, and here are the figures:
Total Debt per person: $180.280
Total Debt Per Family: $682,896
Personal Debt Per Citizen: $51,129
Savings Per Family: $4,845
Official Unemployed: 13,229,233
Actual Unemployed: 23,913,915
State/Local Employees: 15,620,133
Federal Employees: 4,323,424
US Retirees and SSI: 66,396,934
Surprised about these numbers? Remember: "Figures Don't Lie. Liars Figure". There is no reason to elect a new Congress and President. The show is over. We are once again being asked to elect the same "Harvard" types, who got us into this mess, to get us out, using methods and theories that remain the same. It is apparent that there is no actual difference between the Democrats and the Republicans, other than the spelling. So unless you are a complete moron, and believe that the Tooth Fairy is a canny investor, don't bother to send money to candidates, Democrat or Republican, and don't bother to vote. Spend your time being the ultimate consumer, using money you don't have, but credit you do have; Get on government give away programs, and get anything you can get; And last, but not least: Read everything you can about The French Revolution, and make plans to invest in, or start building, Guillotines. We will have a true Democracy at last. Bring on the cake.
