“Obamanomics, also known as the New Deal, also known as Keynesian economics, is once again shown to be a failure. You can accept the theory floated by the apologists of John Maynard Keynes, that we just didn’t spend enough money, or you can accept that taking money out of an economy so you can stimulate it by putting it back in is as effective as making a lake larger by pulling water out of one side and pouring it in the other.” [Read More]
Republicans (and others) would like to see Barack Obama be a one term President.
Will this happen?
I don’t know. Maybe. Hopefully. But I do NOT feel like I can depend on American voters to throw him out based on principle. It is really a matter of luck. If people feel that the economy is improving in the short run they will re-elect Obama. If they feel that the immediate economic future is bleak they will vote for the other guy.
It’s almost a matter of luck.
Wouldn’t it be nice if voters were interested in what principles would give us LONG TERM prosperity?
And what about liberty? Is anyone really concerned about THAT?
Are we willing to keep sliding into a socialist tyranny as long as it FEELS like the economy is getting better?
If I had to choose between “the economy” being “better” or being FREE to pursue my own destiny I would choose FREEDOM.
After all of these years of blogging here I am still THIRSTY FOR FREEDOM.
“Possibly-serious Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is giving few details about the investigation he claims to have launched in Hawaii to get to the bottom of where President Obama was born, but the business mogul told CNN Thursday Americans will be “very surprised” by what he has found.
“‘We’re looking into it very, very strongly. At a certain point in time I’ll be revealing some interesting things,’ Trump said on CNN’s American Morning.
“Trump first claimed earlier this month he had sent investigators to Obama’s home state in an effort to find out if the president was indeed born there, as he says he was and several media organization’s independent investigations have confirmed.
“‘I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they’re finding,’ Trump told NBC then.”
