Which votes will benefit you most?

Which Votes Will Benefit You Most?
October, 29, 2010

By Len Mead

What votes November 2nd will benefit you most? Fortunately, Dear Reader, I stand ready to guide you. And why should you listen to me? What’s my track record predicting how past votes turned out for you? Let’s look.

Two years ago most of you voted Democrat. I asserted then that frightened voters had chosen for more government to take care of them – abdicating the personal responsibility that had made our nation great. I predicted that the Democrat victory would result in more pain, more unemployment, more taxes, more regulations more debt and a recession at best – possibly worse. The current Obama Democrat regime was then imaculated.

My predictions were right. Big-time.

In the next two years, unemployment doubled. 27 million people are now unemployed – almost 20% of our workforce -- if you include the Department of Labor’s “U6” figures of marginally attached workers and those forced to work part time for economic reasons. The desperation and despair of these 27 million individuals is heartbreaking.

Ostensibly to fix this, the elected Democrat regime implemented discredited Keynesian government “stimulus” spending – most recently proven a failure by Bush’s stimulus outlays. Almost a trillion dollars of “targeted” spending went to boondoggle projects and 1-shot injections for public union payrolls. This preventing needed public sector belt-tightening. Not only did this fail to grow our economy, it left us a $14 trillion debt and our Vice President proclaiming, “Yes, we have to keep spending to get ourselves out of bankruptcy.” Duh?!

The total federal debt we and future generations now owe is $43,000 per citizen – unprecedented in history. When will we ever learn that no public figure can out-guess better than the millions of producers in the free market where best to spend the money they earn?

So far this year, our federal government spent $3.5 Trillion -- but collected only $2.1 trillion in taxes and other revenue! 40 cents of every federal dollar spent was borrowed. 40 cents of every dollar of army pay checks or social security checks now has to be borrowed. Do you run your family budget that way? Also, consider that 40 cents of each dollar paid to the 105,000 government employees of the Department of Agriculture has to be borrowed – and how many ears of corn do these employees grow?

Because our banking industry was forced by Barney Frank to make home loans to un-credit worthy people who then defaulted, the Democrats you elected stepped in with two new waves of government financial regulation – again arrogantly demonstrating the thinking that congressional votes could repeal the laws of financial supply and demand. Now personal bankruptcies, home evictions and bank failures are higher than at any time since 1929.

Businesses struggling to expand and hire workers by borrowing will now find available bank loans even more restricted because the new regulations cripple and punish bank risk-taking.

Every crisis between the election and now was used by the Democrat regime to intrude into our precious free markets with more regulations, more taxes, and outright theft. Rather than allow the free market cleansing action of bankruptcy to solve our once-great auto industry’s problems, the Obama regime used the crisis to steal the assets of auto secured bondholders and hundreds of family owned dealerships nationwide (primarily in Republican voting areas). Then the regime rewarded union votes and donations by handing the ownership keys of the auto industry over to the very unions who drove the industry into a ditch.

The best (but not perfect) healthcare in the world will be taken over with Obamacare -- a deceptive scheme with 10 years of new taxes to fund “health change” four years from now. “Romney-care” now bankrupting Massachusetts with costs 40% over estimates is showing what Obamacare will bring.

Our country is now more despised in the world than ever. The presidential “apology tours” only encouraged our enemies to spit in our face. Our borders are now over-run with criminal illegals and terrorists while our Democrat federal government refuses to protect us by enforcing immigration laws. States trying to protect their citizens by enforcing immigration laws are being sued by the elected Democrat regime.

In short, Democrat government has failed absolutely.

So now, friends -- especially you disillusioned Democrats -- you have a chance to use your precious votes to correct these frightening “changes” away from the constitutional principles upon which our country was founded.

My advice is this election is Vote Republican everywhere you can – except where the Republican either in office or running has gone over to the socialist dark side and promises to take care of YOU with more taxes, more spending and more “fairness” regulations. Amazingly, Fidel Castro just admitted, “Socialism doesn’t even work for us.”

Vote conservative, and our capitalist economy will finally roar back as taxes are cut, as unproductive jobs primarily in the public sector are cut and unrealistic spending is cut (primarily unfair promised public pensions). Businesses will start growing and productive jobs will open up once again. Your career prospects, your wealth and your family’s future opportunities will once again be bright.

Voting Democrat again will bring more failure, more misery and possibly even the destruction of our great country. Voting conservative will elect candidates who will mercifully start restoring our God-given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
