You know why it is funny, because it is true. Barack ain't black. Just his skin. But that's plenty for most. The man thinks like the white working
class. His so called lefty agenda is no more extreme than George W's The assault on personal freedoms and protections was begun after 9/11 and has
gained kind of a sustained momentum that is going to be difficult to reverse. So I don't think we can give him real lefty credentials on that.
Healthcare had to be taken on, brought out from underneath the rug. On the table. Well he did that, much to his credit. although I think the effort
was kinda botched.
Things move along slowly in the events of men. That is until the rise of the zealots, and then things change fast. Didn't I hear an elected
politician just recently say, "What we need is more zealots."?
Mitt Romney is a zealot. And I want to be the first to bring to your attention, that change is not always of the type you envision.
We all love and respect hard work. And we all want to keep doing it. But more and more, work is becoming redundant, and more and more, less needed
Capital and labor have worked to together to make a great machinery of civilization that is a model of efficiency and productivity. Capital claims
all the benefits of this accomplishment and tells labor to get after those service and maintenance chores that need to be done. No problem. All we
need now is for capital and labor to share a bit more equally in the excesses of increased productivity, and this economy will be buzzing. Pay those
workers that are left working real money And they will spend it. And the money will flow just like it was intended.
The other option is, hoard money and assign it the duty of seeking rent. Do nothing but risk it and expect payment in return. This ain't capitalism
this is gambling. Romney has the idea that economic success is to give free reign to the power to huge sums of money. Money primarily intended to
extract as much return as possible with as minimum an effort as required. Sounds like gambling.
Remember for all you who want to vote against the black guy, there ain't no black guy running. Bill Clinton's retired.
