What Do I Say?

I just read a little article.

It stated Bush spent his campaign money more effectivly than Kerry.

I'd love to brag about the fact that GW Bush just barely outspent his competitor and still won the election.

These two chuckleheads spent $ 2.2 billion on this campaign. Over $1 billion each!

Kerry should be proud of the fact that he was able to raise almost the same amount of money as the incumbant, but embarassed to lose with such a stockpile of money!

With that kind of cash, there really is no excuse to lose to an incumbant. This year more than ever.

Bush is the son of an ex-Pres, in a war his pop didn't finish, to avoid a guy he can't catch, that changed the landscape of our greatest city forever!

How do you lose with all that ammunition?

Well, of course you could be a part of the most out of touch party there is! You could embrace the Hollywood elite, (*the new kiss of death), never take a stand, say everything everyone wants to hear to gain their trust, ironically leading the thinking people to not trust you as far as they could throw your big head!

The article stated the fact that Bush spent his money more effectivly, I could link that article, but why? To tell you what we all know? To spend money effectivly, you should elect conservatives.

Really? Who'd have thought?

Plus, I do have some of the other guys reading these posts, and I don't want to give them, the Liberals, any ideas.

I have said before that the Liberals should not be destroyed, but they should have a small place in the grand scheme of things.

Like when there are important issues in the world, they should have small amounts of power, like now.

When nothing is going on, except Bosnia and Kosovo to detract attention from your affair with an intern, we have a Clinton, that gave no-bid contracts to Halliburton in both places. How dare him! Somebody call Michael Moore-on!

This is a very important point I would like all to be aware of.

These 2 men spent over $1 billion each!

I know, these are just numbers, and when you combine contributions from all over the country, blah blah blah.

Bottom-Line= Here is a $ Billion gigolo, vs. The son of an ex-president, former owner of the Texas Rangers!

I wish I grew up in a situation that would eventually put me in a position to own a baseball team! I'd be happy to have Brian Cashman's job as the GM of the Yankees. I promise you this, as the owner of a crappy team, I would never offer A-Rod the biggest contract in MLB history! How do you build a team around that? Oh! That's right, you don't! Or if there is a 40 something year old billionairess widow out there? I'm single, and my email is on this page. I'd make a great President some day! Or at least, Senator in the meantime.

I'm just saying, both situations are out of the question for me. So whom do, or did, either of these guys truly represent?

Not me.

I agree with Bush on many things, but there are issues he will never address that concern me.

I worry that the Conservatives will never pull the world into an alternative energy scenario. How can we not engage the world in alternative energy?

I was engaged in a conversation for some time with a reader about the flat tax, and he fought me on the idea of percentages vs. actuall dollars, just like a conservative! Until he saw my side, the right answer!

And I know he is far more passionate about alternative energy, so this should be fun!

Once he see's the big picture, and your-

King's opinion
,

-he'll come around!

If the United States were the only nation buying oil from the Middle East, my reader would be right!

But we aren't!

It is the rest of the dumbasses that call themselves 'Superpowers' that are screwing things up!

We, the US, figured it out in the '70's,

we can't rely on Mid-East oil,

but other countries do!

So on one hand, we cut our money from going to the mid-east, but what about the China's, France's, Germany's, and etc? Are they cutting their buying?

These bunch of sissy's?

Please!!

How 'bout that oil for food thing?

Of course they're not!

I am looking for all of your responses on the issue of alternative energy. Here are the thoughts.

If we find a new source of energy.

We take oil profits away from the middle east, therefore, the money out of the hands of the terrorists.

Sounds good, but.....

What about the countries that didn't take our lead in the '70's? That didn't start contracting elsewhere in the world for oil? How do we get them to stop buying middle east oil?

We also change the landscape of American business.

What happens now that we are no longer buying fuel from our own contry, or countries other than the Middle-East
, the supplier of only about 1/4 of our oil consumption!

Gas stations are out of business, yeah!

But can that corner support a little market selling over priced Fritos and microwavable burritos?

Not to mention the people that Exxon-Mobile, and the rest employ world-wide?

What affect does that have on our economy?

Let's talk!

FLAT TAX
After discussions with you, I did see that the equality of the flat tax was indeed not equal. A conclusion that did elude me. So I WAS wrong about the equality side of the tax equation.

And if I remember correctly, you also embraced the "wrong answer" until you saw the light after researching the issue further. So I guess you were wrong before you were right.

Kind of like "voting against the $82 billion before voting for it".....Maybe upon further education and reflection, we ALL sometimes have the right and, hopefully, wisdom to change our minds.

KEY POINT TO THE FLAT TAX
If there is not a sweeping change (ie - Flat tax), the changes to the tax system will be subtle (because of all the lobbyists influence, power and inertia) and therefore ineffective. Trim a little here and trim a little there. Ultimately, no real change.

More importantly the key aspect of the flat tax is the obliteration of the lobbyists and their HUGE influence on our political system. This influence is undermining ALL the taxpayers of this country. Corporate America is who gets access to the politicians and gets their needs met, not the taxpayers. ALL the political parties have been corrupted by the system! The one billion dollars spent by each candidate demonstrates the inability of campaign finance reform to actually bring our elections into some semblance of integrity and not solely influenced by money.



And I know he is far more passionate about alternative energy, so this should be fun! Once he see's the big picture, and your- King's opinion, -he'll come around! If the United States were the only nation buying oil from the Middle East, my reader would be right! But we aren't!

So on one hand, we cut our money from going to the mid-east, but what about the China's, France's, Germany's, and etc? Are they cutting their buying?

The money being directed to the ME from these remaining countries will eventually dry up. This trend will be seen by the ME countries and it will be a buyers market.

Ultimately, why should other countries actions affect our decision making process regarding our future energy policy? Ultimately, if "we build it, they will come"....Do you not think that if there was another viable form of energy, the rest of the world would not embrace it and free themselves from the instability inherent in the ME?



These bunch of sissy's? Please!! How 'bout that oil for food thing?

The UN should be disgusted with itself. K. Annan should be gone!!



Of course they're not! I am looking for all of your responses on the issue of alternative energy. Here are the thoughts. If we find a new source of energy.

The entrepreneurial spirit is inexhaustible and amazingly creative. Do we just give up and accept things as they are? It is not a matter of if we find an alternative, it is a matter of when. The sooner we start, the better off we will be in the long run.



We take oil profits away from the middle east, therefore, the money out of the hands of the terrorists.Sounds good, but.....

So we should continue to put money into the hands of terrorists because they will continue to do humanitarian works with it?? Is the current system working so well that we not change it?



What about the countries that didn't take our lead in the '70's? That didn't start contracting elsewhere in the world for oil?

We are far from the only country to contract for oil elsewhere in the world. France has huge oil interests in Nigeria.....Japan is very heavily dependent upon ME oil. One of their responses is the hybrid cars. So significant is there impact on the auto industry that Chrysler and Ford(?)(or one of the other big three auto companies) are coming together to try to catch up on the huge lead with hybrids that the Japanese have established....I feel this is a result of the short sighted, minimalistic US "response" we implemented in the 70s and beyond....

Ultimately, the answer will not be one thing. It will be the cumulative affect of many things. And the transition will probably extend into the next couple of generations.



How do we get them to stop buying Middle East oil?
We also change the landscape of American business.

So....It has been changing for decades.



What happens now that we are no longer buying fuel from our own country, or countries other than the Middle-East, the supplier of only about 1/4 of our oil consumption!

The capitalistic system strength is adapting and changing its landscape to the changing supply and demands of business. Just like outsourcing industries to other countries. New industries will be developed as offshoots from this this new approach.



Gas stations are out of business, yeah!
The system will adapt....Let the market work! You are beginning to sound like a democrat.



But can that corner support a little market selling over priced Fritos and microwavable burritos? Not to mention the people that Exxon-Mobile, and the rest employ world-wide?



What affect does that have on our economy?
This is a long term change.

Let's talk!
