What do you really know about the candidates that are running for president? Let’s take one at a time, starting with Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney Interview with Jim Acosta (July 13, 2012)
Let’s read some of the quotes that Mitt Romney is famous for:
“I should tell my story. I’m unemployed.”– Mitt Romney, speaking in 2011 to unemployed people in Florida. Romney’s net worth is over $200 million.
“I like being able to fire people who provides services to me.” – Mitt Romney, using an unfortunate choice of words while advocating for consumer choice in health insurance plans.
“I’m not concerned about the poor. We have a safety net there.” – Mitt Romney
“I get speaker’s fees from time to time, but not very much.” – Mitt Romney, who earned $374,000 in speaking fees in one year, according to his personal financial disclosure.
Let’s take a look at Mitt Romney’s 2012 Economic Plan:
Romney’s plan is to get the government out of business, because only the private sector has the economic muscle to create the millions of jobs needed. (This sounds like political demagoguery!) What specifically will he do? Let’s see the rough draft in black and white?
Romney also proposes lowering personal, investment and corporate taxes. (How exactly would he lower the taxes?) Show the public his plan, so that the public has time to review it and decide if he is worthy of their vote!
To offset the revenue loss, Romney wants to reduce non-defense government spending by cutting regulations and government departments.(What particular departments is Romney referring too? Spell it out, so that the public is clear on what departments will be downsized, outsource or eliminated altogether.)
Romney is also in favor of returning some of the federal power to the state level.
As you can see, all these vague statements are meaningless without qualifying explanations to substantiate the demagoguery that is being spewed at the public in pep-rally fashion. You walk away feeling elated until someone ask you, “Exactly how will Mitt Romney turn this economy around and get this country on the right track?”
Mitt Romney wants you to believe that he has your best interest and the interest of the country at heart, but he’s hedging his bet and his money in a bank overseas, but don’t worry, if all else fails, he’ll outsource America.

Republican presidential contender Herman Cain boldly chastises his critics and spewed his political demagoguery at the growing crowds, who participate in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
While appearing on CBS’s, Face the Nation, words between the Republican and Democratic parties over the merits of the movement became heated and Herman Cain wasted no time telling you what he really felt about the ”Occupy Wall Street Movement.”
Cain called the protesters “jealous, Americans who “play the victim card.” Also, in recent days GOP politicians have stepped up their criticism of the protesters, with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., calling them “mobs” who have pitted Americans against Americans.”
Is this really the opinion of those that were chosen to represent the American people and those who hope to represent the American people in the future? Who are the politicians’ really looking out for?
Is it the big company’s with the endless amounts of cash and perks or the least of us, who can’t afford to pay someone to lobby Congress on our behalf to do the right thing?
It is apparent at every political election that we live in two distinct worlds. Either you have = an abundance of money or you have not = working class poor or the disappearing middle class.
It is always telling when one of the politicians are ask, “How much is a loaf of bread?” Not one candidate can get the price right because that’s not the world they live in and are often perplexed that they were even ask the question.
Cain goes on to suggest that the rallies are staged by labor unions to serve as a “distraction so that many people won’t focus on the failed policies of the Obama administration” Cain further states that the banking and financial services industries aren’t responsible for those policies and to protest Wall Street and the bankers is basically saying you’re anti-capitalism. Can someone pass the Charmin, while the other two pull his head out of the bankers behind?
Oh! Don’t forget too flush twice on your way out! Thanks!
The time has come where the rubber meets the road! Over a trillion dollars is still committed to pork projects, so let’s start from the obvious. Every representative needs to take a hard look at their expense account and should be mandated to cut it at least by 50 percent.
Internal auditors should already be in the process of evaluating every single account, line by line and its existence should be justified and if it can’t be justified, it should be eliminated. People! We are in the critical stages of life support for respectability and sustainability throughout the world.
At this very moment, the international guard eyes are on every move that our administration make. The IMF has its hands on the trigger and at a moments notice ready to introduce SDR’s as the new international currency. Once this happens, you can take your dollars and use it for wall paper or better yet, gift wrapping paper of times gone by.
The administration and the other players can agree to disagree all they want too, but if they lose focus and continue to bicker pass the deadline and fail to act in respect to the debt ceiling, they all should just pack their bags and go back to their respective home bases and confine themselves to “house arrest” until the new administration is elected in 2012.
I don’t know about you! but I’m sick of all the political posturing, the name calling, the blame game, the power struggle, the one up on you, the I’ll show you speech…. E.NO.U.G.H! I’ve heard enough “Political Demagoguery” to last me two lifetimes!
Walter E. Williams, PhD, is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., served as commentator for WorldNetDaily, wrote a thought provoking piece on “Political Demagoguery” in an issue published October 20, 2004, and so eloquently stated that “Politicians have a field day misleading Americans who, as a result of having been dumb down by our education system, can’t think, reason or analyze.”
At first, it sounds condescending…after a little soul searching, you must admit, there is an element of truth in this statement and sometimes the truth hurt.
Furthermore, Suze Orman, internationally acclaimed personal finance expert and currently during a series on “The Money Class” has challenged every one of us to do what? “Stand in Your Truth!” so I’m challenging the powers on Capital Hill to “Stand in Their Truth!” and stop lying to the American public. Lay it all out on the table and tell the public the truth about how the money is really allocated and what they are really going to do or not do about fixing this mess, then “Put-Up! Or Shut-Up!
