Job Creation?

YouTube – Ranking Member Camp Presses Joint Tax Committee Staffer on Job Creation.

Let me get this…  The Republicans are fiscally conservative this week.  Where in the hell was your party’s fiscal conservatism between 2001 and 2009?  Where was it when Bush proposed his first budget (before 9/11)?   Let’s not forget that John Bohener voted for the first bailout package.  It is snake-oil scumbags like him that are killing the Republican Party.

I am a true fiscal conservative.  The Republican and Democratic parties are as fiscally conservative as the sun rising at midnight.

We need fiscal conservatism back while we still have a country.  Running an additional trillion dollars in debt every year is not good for the economy.  The video is correct in pointing out that no new jobs will be created with this bailout plan.  If only the Republicans practiced what they are currently preaching.

Let’s Discuss the Issues

I believe that the more we discuss the issues and the candidates’ records, the more people that neither John McCain nor Barack Obama are worth your vote.  Let’s discuss government spending, the debt, the flux of workers retiring and wanting Social Security, Iraq, immigration, and foreign policy.

Bring it!

The Cards are Stacked Against Us

From NBC’s Lauren Appelbaum
While Paul did speak the least during tonight’s debate, he was given the last word, answering the last question of the debate.

Times During Segment Three
Romney: 8:48, during five times
Giuliani: 4:14, during four times
Huckabee: 4:02, during three times
McCain: 3:00, during three times
Paul: 2:57, during two times

Total Times
Romney: 21:11, during 13 times
McCain: 16:00, during 13 times
Giuliani: 13:50, during 11 times
Huckabee: 12:11, during nine times
Paul: 6:31, during six times

Let’s assume that Ron Paul is lunatic, as many pundits claim. Give him equal time so all of America can see him as the “wacko” he is. The problem is that Ron Paul’s message is resonating with many people.

The Republican leadership knows that Ron Paul is viable. There have been allegations of voting irregularities in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Louisiana. (Louisiana held caucuses on Tuesday, but will also hold primaries on Feb. 9)

Ron Paul will not win the Republican nomination. There are a few reasons for this. One reason is that people still don’t know who he is. When he gets mentioned, there is no mention on his positions. The only time people get to know his positions is in debates. (Many post-debate polls show that Paul wins the debates handily) The networks know this and this is why he gets the least debate time (if he gets to debate at all i.e. Fox in New Hampshire).

The worst part about Paul not being our next president is that we will very likely get a President who will continue to spend and our debt will soon be insurmountable.
