My only point os that there will be no last minute incarnation of Ronald Reagan. All of the candidates who oppose the regime are imperfect. Having said that, any of them would be a vast improvement over what we now have and what it will further degenerate into with four more years combined with lame duck status.
I know it seems that way to you, but I disagree. I don't see Santorum, Gingrich and Romney (S.G.R.) as a vast improvement over what we now. I am sure that seems stupid to many and probably it does to you too.
I will explain if you would like.
The number one priority to me in getting our nation on the right track is changing our monetary policies. The Federal Reserve is destroying the value of our money. It is a complex subject and Santorum, Gingrich and Romney (S.G.R.) do not want to seriously address it. Newt like to mention it a bit but he is not serious about the changes that would have to take place. If we don't make changes, nothing else matters.
The second priority to me is our debt situation. It is apparent that we have a national debt of $15+trillion, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Our unfunded liabilties of Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid are over $60+trillion. The S.G.R. gang have no intention of addressing this issue either. We need MAJOR change and those guys are talking about the same old nonsense of minor trims.
Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong and you can show me where the S.G.R. gang has written that they want to end the fed or are willing to cut $1 trillion from the federal budget in the first year and balence the budget in 3 years.
I could go on but I think you may get the picture. I am not impressed with the concept of going back to 2000-2006 style "conservative" governing. I would rather get it right now or in 4 years, than be forced to wait until 2028, which is what would be the most likely result if Romney got elected in 2012.
