I’m Torn August 28, 2010Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
I’m no economist or expert, obviously. But there really are a lot of things that must be done in order to restore our economy, but I’m only bringing up one here. Many wiser heads than mine have been working on this for a long time.
The problem is, that as much as I would like to see restoration implemented immediately, I keep having the feeling that I don’t want anything positive to come out of the mess this current resident has gotten us into. It’s no secret he is determined to destroy the economy in his bid to bring about his “fundamental changes” to this country.
Does he crave praise and adulation enough to suggest something like massive tax cuts? (Look for this to happen just before the elections.) There are enough dupes in this country who might support him in this. I dunno…he does have his supporters. But a lot of the people who voted for him are disappointed that he hasn’t gone far enough to the left. Would there be an outcry from these disappointed ones if he should propose such a move? The politically astute would know it would only be smoke and mirrors for the sake of the election, but his peeps might just be outraged enough to demand it not even be put on the table.
As much as I would love to see the economy turn around — and it’s still not too late — I’m not sure I want it to be as a result of the policies of the current resident. I keep praying that the country can hang in there until there are enough conservatives in offices throughout the states to make such a change, make it work, and make it stick. But there are also a bunch of diehard lefties who want absolutely nothing to do with anything that smacks of cuts in taxation.
I keep having this little fear at the back of my mind that he will use this as the ultimate weapon for gaining votes and support from the mushy middle in November, and that the proposals would be not just smoke and mirrors but as fleeting as sprites. But I just wouldn’t put it past the little sneak.
If we are going to turn things around, I’m just selfish enough to want it to be done while the adults are around to make it work properly. I don’t want some snivelling little glory-hound to try to claim the praise for anything good after he’s deliberately destroyed this country. I know. It’s just me.
Like I said, I’m torn.
