“How do you feel about whether or not the USA should put “boots on the ground” in (whatever enemy country)?” Bye, bye, prospective nominee.
I’ve had enough of “leaders” who vote by poll. My old-time tenet is that people who represent me and have “inside” information, and also probably more knowledge than I do, should have common sense and courage to vote what is good for my country.
Chances are what is good for my country will be good for me. For instance, I think I would like to see a one percent cut across the board for all entitlements. That I say knowing well that my whole financial dependence is on entitlements. But I can’t see how my $1000 cut to $990 will tear up my budget any worse than it is already torn up by an unhealthy economy.
Hopefully the ten bucks will go to some system that will save me that much or more in a growing economy. I will add that I’ll have a fit if it is used to promote some agency who’s goal is to put more money into someone’s party, or upgrade his limousine, or kill babies.
That’s where we need an honest and unbiased media. Then we can know for whom to vote, so we can vote for the people who will represent us. How do we get an unbiased media? That’s a problem when the media is the one who is selecting the media! The only answer I have present is to boycott the special interest media groups—that also includes the universities that are turning out only graduates who fit into their cookie cutters.
Nominees, don’t be so concerned about my wants as about my needs. I need a free country run by people of integrity, good sense, and humility enough to listen to people who know, not to those who want.
Classic example of poor leadership. Poll that asks 18 year old if they believe we should have free colleges and universities! Or to ask the unemployed if we should extend unemployment benefits!
Polls will reflect media, honest or not.
Out and over, Fellow Citizens. 😀
