Oh yeah, you beat that change banner.
Obama's General Plan:
-Increase taxes on the rich/otherwise cut taxes
-Spent A LOT more
-Balance out the budget
Problem much? Scrutinize his website; The costs are tremendous to putting his policies through, and his work to cut spending/pork and grow receipts
are negligible. If all the pork was eliminated from FY2007, we would save around 15 Billion USD. But he wants to spend that on alternative energy
research, putting that up to 150 billion in the ten-year project. But get real, the man doesn't want to cut pork, if anything he'll increase it. He
approved over 50 pork barrels at a cost of nearly 100 million, meaning I find his sincerity and ability to stop pork extremely dubious. Seriously,
looking to the number of work in which he wants to even quadruple the money given, I'd guess that netfed outlays will up by 30% whilst under his
Obama will increase the deficit and doing anything other than cutting the deficit and leading to a massive surplus is a wonderfully stupid idea.
Obama's plans will lead to an increase in the deficit, and doing anything other than lowering the deficit and getting a massive surplus is a
wonderfully stupid idea.
If that weren't bad, his idea to bail out homeowners is. If he truly wants to be bailing out individual homeowners, there isn't any reason why the
government shouldn't bail out market speculators who lose money. So is he prepared to spend $50 Billion a day
to compensate? That is
incredible stupidity at its worst.
And the environment? An extremely aggressive biofuels program which does what? Remove forests to plant biofuel crops. Yet he still wants to help solve
global warming. Guess what? Ethanol is still a Hydrocarbon. When it's burned, CO2 is still a result. CH3CH2OH+302=2CO2+3H2O. What the hell was he
doing in high school chem? And since based on the weak energy bonds, more will have to be burnt. Sure, it lowers are dependence on foreign oil, but
then it seriously hurts the globe by way of bad emissions.
What would be great is if he would stop being so bloody vague and actually specify even ANYTHING. "Get others to trade fairly with us" Wonderful
idea! But how the hell is he going to do that?
I'm not trying to argue that Obama is necessarily worse suited for the task, but it is that he is not a good fit for it. As a citizen, I should be
able to choose between good candidates, not Bad, Worse and McAwful.
