A friend of mine asked me to assess President Obama and Gov. Romney. I told him they had different hair styles. Of course, there are other differences, but they fall within respected perimeters, often tight perimeters.
Although, we need substantial changes and reforms, the traditional parties will not produce those changes. These parties are owned by organized interests, which collectively. represent a minority. It seems democracy in America has been turned on it’s head.
The Florida debacle in now over and it seems that the “brainwashing campaign” won the day, if you want to call Romney’s victory at the polls winning.
The spending ratio was 4 to 1 in favor of Romney.
Politicians trust the lack of political sophistication among those that vote. So, they design campaigns, not to inform and enlighten, or even produce a revelation on their opponent, but to indoctrinate, with repetitive messages on high-priced media.
Invariably, the high spender wins.
You would think what was pulled off in Florida would offend people, but apparently that is not the case.
America needs some fresh new voters and brighter voters !
After watching the State of the Union address, it isobvious that the administration is oblivious to our combined debt problems. Neither does the Congress show alarm, even though they see Europe’s debt problem worsen by the day.
I watched Romney, in a flurry of exhubrance at a rally, declare he would balance the budget without raising taxes. That tells me he don’t understand the deficits and the combined indebtness of the country or the unemployment condition, and demographic projections.
