If my cat could talk, I think he'd have a PhD in comparison politics right now. He watches a LOT of CNN.
So here's what I want to know, and what I think of this whole financial crisis. But here's what you have to know about me first. I do not believe in government oversight ever. I'm a pretty hard core libertarian that way. I'm all for the "teach them correct principles and let them govern themselves" method of government. Except there has never been a people good enough of and of a pure enough heart to truly operate that way. However, I do believe we need to stop drafting so many laws, and instead give people more incentive to do what is right. Call it the candy jar method of governance. "If you do it right, you can take something from the candy jar."
Now here's what I think of this Wall Street fiasco. LET IT FALL. LET IT HURT. AND DEAL WITH IT. I don't want to see some big government bailout. Bring on the recession. Cause you know what? It wasn't BIG BUSINESS' fault. Every single stock and share holder could have made a difference. When all those people invested- purely for personal financial gain- they had the chance to read the fine print, and understand the companies they were investing in. They had the options to vote, and to make a difference within those companies. But they didn't take it. They deserve to be punished just as much as the people at the top, in my personal humble opinion.
Why should the government bail them out? And where do we draw the line and decide who gets government help and who doesn't?
Cause let me tell you what else bothers me. The government will come up with this huge astronomical bailout money, that we will have to pay back to the government in several years in the form of taxes. And who will be the people who feel those taxes more than most? US, the middle class citizens, and NOT the fat cats at the top of the ladder.
I think Obama is a big huge fat mistake right now. He has no words. He has no plans. Today his big statement was, "I have strong feelings about that." But then he didn't and couldn't share those feelings! Or express how those feelings may lead to an action of some sort.
Palin is useless as well. And that is all I will say for her.
I am actually glad to see McCain working on this matter. I think he can be trusted.
But you know who would have been the best at the helm to help us?
