Economic bad news always benefits democratic candidates. You just know that Obama and his campaign are hoping that the current crisis and bailouts continue through the election. That way they can continue to prey upon peoples fears and loss of confidence in the economy so that they can lure them to vote for them by promising safety.

Americans that prefer independence and liberty, have a sense of personal responsibility and would rather not take hand outs. There is pride and satisfaction in caring for yourself and family especially if you value your freedom and liberty. Obama and the democrats are always promising safety, proposing larger government programs, and arranging for more hand-outs. In a sense, making Americans dependent on the government by having them give up liberty for a little safety.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. –Benjamin Franklin

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. – Abraham Lincoln

When the people fear the government you have tyranny…when the government fears the people you have liberty. – Thomas Jefferson

Obamas’ proposed economic policies are naive and will damage this country for years to come. The crisis we are having now are mostly a result of the flawed character in the leadership of those financial institutions that are failing. The were driven by greed and took advantage of an irrational exuberance the gripped the housing market across the country. They offered a means for people to live beyond their means and get into homes that they could not afford. They essentially offered something that was too good to be true. Does that sound familiar? Obama and his ilk are now pitching an irrational pessimism, offering solutions that on the surface appear to good to be true.

What we really need to do, in order to preserve our liberty and freedom, is to regain our confidence in our economy and way of life, be accountable for however we have ourselves lived beyond our means or been lured by greed and stay the course.

Obama is an opportunist and will continue to exploit any loss of confidence we have. Look to real leadership, read McCains plan and decide for yourself.
