Barack Obama voted Yes for the Economic Stabilization Act

John McCain voted Yes for the Economic Stabilization Act

Going with the flow much?

Obama voted the bill through in the pretense of appearing cooperative in pushing this so-called "essential Act" for the benefit of the American people.

John McCain fundamentally believes that this Act is a necessary piece of legislature to reestablish financial order in America.

Neither one of their decisions today was respectable. Obama voted Yes in fear that the Act would in the future appear to be necessary. That is not the case in reality. In fact, we would be better off without it.

McCain actually believes that the only way for this economy to be fundamentally sound is for the financial stability of Wall Street's wealthy proprietors and for the financial security of foreign markets.

What essentially happened today, when that Bill was passed, was that all of you, the American taxpayers, to the order of $7000 per tax paying citizen, have funded the financial stability of foreign companies, and the payrolls of corporate executives in the U.S. that rely on those secure revenues.

But, really, why again should the taxpayers pay for this? This is a blatant violation of our liberty. We are being taxed for their mistakes.

We are doing the government a huge favor, one that will likely never be returned... So what about next time? Are we just going to sit idly by while our finances are stripped because of the incompetency of financial leaders on Wall Street? Because it will happen again. Maybe we just don't care, because maybe, by the time this happens again, we'll be dead... but then again, so will our freedoms, and the freedoms and liberties of our children.

  1. Has this event changed any of your minds significantly in your choice for the next President of the U.S.A? Will you abstain from voting?
  2. What are your thoughts about the validity of the Economic Stabilization Act?
  3. What do you think of the potential success or failure of EESA, and how do you feel the Bill has impinged on your personal and Constitutional freedoms and liberties?
