It's the Economy Stupid!!!

If you have followed this blog over the last two years, you may notice that I have had little to say about politics and the upcoming election in more recent posts.  The reason is simple:  It keeps my blood pressure lower if I don't actually have to put my thoughts into writing.

But, let me say this one thing about the upcoming election - or maybe more than one:

Candidates and media, please stop trying to distract the voting public with stuff that does not improve our economic situation.  All this talk about gay marriage and a woman's right to choose will not create one job in this country, lower our national debt, or make our enemies like us more.  Stop pandering to all the special interests and telling them what you think they want to hear.  Fact is that most of you will totally forget about our wishes until you are busy running for election again.

If you truly do not have a plan to improve our economy, they get the hell out of the race.  I fear that we are witnessing first hand the fall of the 'American' Empire.  I would hate to see our country become a Socialist Republic, but I hear some young people say they think their life would be so much easier if we were. 

Here is a thought for them:  It is likely that your great-grandparents left socialist and communist regimes in Europe to come to America.  Why do you think that was???

OK.  Now I need to go take a shower and cool off.
