Creating The Socialist National Bank of Amerika

How much is enough?  Well, how about another $250 Billion!  That’s BILLION with a ‘B’!  So we’ve poured billions and billions into this bailout with no end in site. 

Obama seems to see the bailout and the economy as a way to make political hay.  His answer is to tax more and spend more.  My questions to Senator Obama are:  How does taking more money out of my pocket and giving it to others help the situation? ……and…..  How does spending MORE money and creating larger government bureaucracy help? 

Isn’t our problem that a liberal government has been to involved in making policy like the Community Reinvestment Act that forced banks to make bad loans?  Isn’t the problem also that through our ‘social engineering’ strategies, government spends way to much money?  I say yes, that is the problem. 

For those that would point to the war and say we spent to much there, I say you are correct.  But, be honest about why you say that, you wouldn’t save that money.  You just want it to poor into other government programs.

McCain is a different story.  He doesn’t have a clue about how the economy works.  He seems to be walking lock step with what Paulson and Bernanke are recommending and he has no original ideas of his own.  To his credit he wants to freeze spending, but to his discredit he has suggested drastic cuts in spending.

Conservatives and Republicans in general are way to far to the other side of this issue.  There needs to be some SERIOUS regulation of banks and investment banking operations.  There needs to be oversight to make sure that these organizations are taking advantage of the public.

Both sides have it wrong.  Seems like we are ruled by the extreme left and the extreme right and the only candidates we get that are in the middle don’t have the backbone to make a stand against the extremes on both sides!  We need someone in the middle to say enough!  and stand up to both the left and the right.

Sorry, back to the subject at hand…..

So Paulson decides he’s going to take $250,000,000 and ‘invest’ in America’s banks.  Now we have the ‘socialization’ of the American Banking System and neither candidate ….let me say that again…. NEITHER CANDIDATE! has said anything about it!

And who gets the largest portion of that money, 9 of the nations largest banking institutions!  I would love to see the ‘formula’ where they figured that one out.

One last thing and I’ll close; I just read the U.S. Constitution.  Funny thing is I didn’t see anywhere in there where the Federal Government was given the power to own bank stocks.  Can someone help me out with this?  Please, I’m just sure my head is going to pop right off of my shoulders!
