Have you ever seem any video of people being asked questions about the government? Most of the people say they do not follow the news. They just decide to believe what they want to believe about a person and never check to see if it is true. These are the voters that keep the offices filled with trash. I do have to credit Ron Paul with getting college students interested in politics and trying to convince them that more government is not the answer. I think the Republican party failed to pick a candidate in the last election that appeared to be for less government and the democrats used that to achieve there goal. When you can not see the new person doing a better job why bother going to vote, when there is a party somewhere.
A perfect example of what Obama says, and people still believe what he says.
"... don't think that top down solutions are the way to go"? Anyone remember Solyndra? Fisker?Quote:
From Obama's speech at his CA fund-raiser.OBAMA: We don't think government can do everything, don't think that top down solutions are the right way to go. We believe in the free market. We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations. We don't want to tax all businesses out of business. But we do think that there's a role to play for government.
A "light touch when it comes to regulations"? Does anybody believe that with Obamacare's 20,000 pages of regulations ... and more to come? Did he send the memo to the EPA after Chu suggested that the agency "bury" industry in paperwork?
Does this correlate at all with chastizing Apple for paying too little in taxes, when they were totally legal in their paying of taxes by keeping their earnings outside the US? (They would, indeed, like to have Apple's tax money in the US coffers. Why doesn't somebody just ask Apple what it would take to make that happen?)
After the Benghazi talking points fiasco, one can believe this pure rhetoric?
