Politics and The American Voter’s Plight

There is no doubt that America is the strongest nation in the world. It is not, and never has been, its military might or economic strength that has made it so. The strength of America lies in its very foundation of Freedom and Liberty which gives every American the power to direct the course of the nation through local, state and federal elections. The strength of America is, and always has been, the American People.

America needs to rise up to the task of meeting the challenges ahead … as only Americans can do. But I am dismayed and have been battling to remain optimistic during this primary season. Do you see what I see happening? Are you as fed up as I am? Is it my imagination or are there millions of Americans about to shoot themselves in the foot?

This primary has put in front of our eyes some very disturbing facts. We have been witness to the most scandalous actions (and inactions) of party officials and Media which should surely incense all Americans. But there is no outcry. In fact, for most of the country it seems these instances have not happened at all or are dismissed because of some unknown logical reason for its happening.

And so, time trudges on with the same sound bites and rally cries from the candidates and the Media commentators editorializing every detail of their campaigns … with one exception, of course.

My question is: How intelligent are the American voters anyway?

Let us take a closer look…

John McCain wants the voters to believe that he has the experience required to meet the economic challenges that lay ahead. He wants the voters to have confidence in his economic ability. He may have convinced some if the polls are any indication. Or maybe that lead in the polls is due to those voters that believe he would make a good “Commander in Chief” in these perilous times of “terrorism”.

To think that anyone would believe that McCain has the economic experience America needs in the top slot really frightens me. It frightens me because it makes a statement about the intelligence of the American Voter.

McCain had his chance to prove his economic prowess with a question posed to him by Congressman Paul during the GOP Florida Debate. Congressman Paul’s question centered on the “President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.” How many Americans even know what this “working group” is or have any clue as to whether or not McCain’s answer was any answer at all?

The working group is led by Treasury Chief Hank Paulson and includes The Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Details about this group are easily found on the Internet.

This aside, did McCain answer the question? Is John McCain going to keep this working group in place? And if so, what would the role of this group be and would what they are doing and how they are involved in the markets be transparent? Or … would he get rid of the working group altogether?

If you can find a yes or no to this question in McCain’s response … please point it out to me! I have found nothing to indicate what he would do. What I saw was a man caught with his pants down. What I saw was a man confronted with a simple question that he should have been able to answer given his years of holding top Federal positions of power.

Now that you know what the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets question actually was … watch this video of John McCain demonstrating his economic knowledge and expertise as he dances around this simple question without ever giving any sort of intelligible answer. And if after understanding all of this there is any American that has actually been convinced that McCain has the economic knowledge and experience needed in these difficult times then I say that American Voter is STUPID.

Over the years we have learned that cutting taxes actually brings more revenue to the government and stimulates the economy. We also know, by pure common sense, that any tax costs laid on corporations is passed on, to the consumer, through higher prices. We have also learned how government spending causes inflation. How can it be possible then that so many Americans are ready to cast their vote for more government spending and higher costs at the checkout counter?

Look at the crowds that Hillary Clinton draws with her promises of more government spending through social programs such as universal health care. Why? How can this be? Is it possible that there are Americans that don’t understand what these programs would do to the economy? … to their personal wealth?

Bill Clinton spoke about how Hillary would push to have the tax breaks given to oil company’s reversed and how that money would be spent for the good of the American People. Yeah, right… and the American People would be paying a lot more at the gas pump than they are right now. This proposal is really nothing more than another tax on the people. And there are actually Americans that want higher fuel prices and higher taxes??

Well, I must admit that I am stymied by all of this. What thought processes bring these voters to the conclusion that Hillary, or any other “tax and spend” Democrat, is what this nation needs during these troubled economic times is beyond my comprehension. Sure, I will probably receive a ton of hate mail for this … but these American Voters are STUPID.

As stated in the opening paragraphs, the election process is the power of the people. And yet there have been, and are going to be, some very serious problems with this primary election. Problems that can only be described with the terms “Fraud” and “Criminal.”

There will be States using totally paperless voting machines in their upcoming elections. This practice violates the secrecy laws of the election process. Isn’t a violation of law a “crime”? And wouldn’t the people involved in this violation of law be considered “criminals”? Where are the American People on this issue?? Where is the outcry?

In previous posts there are links and commentary regarding the New Hampshire primary and how votes were not properly reported from several districts. It was attributed as “human error” at the first location after which several other locations changed their tally to reflect votes for a candidate which had previously been listed as “zero”.

After viewing this video could you honestly say this doesn’t look like a man that is up to no good? Are we really supposed to buy this crap? And are the people of New Hampshire going to stand idly by while these men violate their trust and confidence?

The truth is that Americans are not being properly informed. There are a lot of Americans that don’t realize all of the options they have during this primary because those options are not being reported to them. Americans are being manipulated to vote for the “winner” and to ignore what others consider to be the “losers” in this contest. And Americans are not being informed of any problems regarding the election process.

The Mainstream Media is attempting to influence this primary election by not reporting facts. The Mainstream Media, specially FOX News, has behaved in the most unjust manner ever exhibited by any news agency. How many Americans were informed by FOX News that Ron Paul won 2nd place in Nevada? They didn’t mention his name or put his picture in their graphics when they showed every other candidates percentages. How many were informed by Fox News that Ron Paul took 2nd place in Louisiana and because of the “provisional ballots” that have yet to be counted may actually have won that state?

I have just informed you that Ron Paul took 2nd place in Nevada. I’ll let the video tell the rest of the story. Fox News may actually have put their license at risk. After watching the video you may want to ask yourself why the News Media, whom you depend on to report facts, isn’t reporting these facts. And you might want to do some research and find out why Ron Paul is so popular.

Fox news is pushing the idea that now, even before the Florida primary votes are cast, the GOP has a 2 man race between John McCain and Mitt Romney. Hmm, again they are discounting one of the candidates. No, it isn’t Giuliani or Huckabee they are missing. Giuliani has already hinted that he may drop out if he does not win Florida. And if the polls are correct we may as well say bye-bye Rudy. It may be that Rudy’s back and forth with Ron Paul and the education that Dr. Paul gave him, spelled the beginning of his end.

It isn’t likely that Mike Huckabee will continue on. If he does we will not see much coverage of his campaign as Fox news is setting the tone for this election and is yet undecided between McCain and Romney as to who they want you to vote for. Mikey isn’t in their agenda.

They are missing Congressman Paul in their line up. Ron Paul is in for the long haul. And there may come a time that the Mainstream Media, like Fox News, MSNBC, etc., will no longer be able to ignore him.

America has been the greatest nation in the world because of its Freedom and Liberty that puts the People in Power over the government. America must now rise up to defend itself from domestic enemies that would steal their Power from them. These enemies are a biased media and criminal actions of elected and political party officials. The American People must now rise up and take hold of their power and meet this challenge head on.

  8. Thanks.
    McCain has a lot to learn about economics. The scary part is that he is past 70 and is so ignorant of the basics.
    Like balancing a budget AND keeping the free market FREE of government intrusion.

  9. Thanks for chiming in.

    There is more question about McCain’s run for the highest office of the land in regards the “law of the land”. I have not had any time to do the research required to confirm the personal information provided about John McCain in this article, but you may find it interesting.

    John McCain Not Eligible to run for office?

  10. Interesting. I just posted on the power of the status-quo on the voter. It is a routine both in process and in what we select…and yet at times many seem to want real change.
