Today is Election Day in the US and I just took the time to add my 2 cents.
Again there is the choice between the 2 main partyís candidates. One is the current president and one is the contender Romney. I think there is not much to say about Obama here. But I want to go into detail about Mitt Romney. Yes Romney. It took the Republicans 4 years to come up with a suitable candidate and all they found is this guy?
America is a country with many talented people so there was no better option than Mitt Romney? They had an unskilled President with G.W. Bush before, now they come up with a guy whose only accomplishment was cutting jobs at any company Bain Capital acquired? An optimizer, whoís job was to cut jobs. And this guy promises to bring back jobs. Just as the current president has already lied about? The jobs are not coming back. Not today, not tomorrow. An honest person would say the truth. Never. Of course people donít want to hear that. Read my previous piece about jobs >>here<<< to get the reasons why.
Reason 2. Romney is a Mormon. Mormons are religious fanatics. They donít appear so on the outside, but believe. I was a Mormon before. They are as tolerant as Shiite Muslims. In times as there are more religious fanatics appear on the stage of politics, this would be the wrong signal. Especially for the USA. The leading nation on this planet. We donít need more religious people in power, we need less. Romney is not just a member of the latter day saints. He is a former Bishop. Meaning a high ranking member who was the head of a Mormon regional Church. He went to the temple, passed through all ritual and swore an oath on the Churches principles. He also wears the Mormon undergarment, which he must wear all the times. He also agrees with the book of Mormon as the final word from god and he believes that god punishes bad people by giving them dark skin. He also believes that Native Americans are Lamanites, who were the followers of Laman their evil leader, who committed genocides on the good white skinned Nephites, who used to land in America long before Christopher Columbus rediscovered the continent. This is a man who has zero tolerance on black people, Native Americans, Latins and Asians. He will further bind education in America with religious views. And currently there is already too much of it in American education.
Even though Obama and also Romney work for the same lobbyists who pay for their campaigns and even promote them for taking office, the American people can only choose between these 2 evils.
Obama is no saint by donating the peopleís money to Wall Street. But it was Bush who wrote the first check. Obamaís failure here is that he enlisted especially Wall Street bankers to fill the seats. Those people are not doing jack for the American people. They at large make decisions based on what is good for Wall Street.
But if there is no real honesty and people are not pushing towards more transparency, these people can continue business as usual. What we also know the president is not the person in power. Itís those who sponsor the events and pay for the actors. But thatís another story.
We can just honestly say, the jobs are not coming back, and also it is not the president who can fix the economy. Itís still the economy itself that needs to do the job. The only things politicians can do about the economy are working on the framework, like creating a better infrastructure, ensure peace and stability, and provide education. If necessary do regulations. Everything else is in the hands of the economy itself. And itís just natural. If American products are not competitive enough, when it comes to price and quality others will step in and sell their goods instead. Just as when GM were sleeping and foreign brands took the American car market. Since there is global business anyone is allowed to sell anywhere.
