How We're Better Off

At this point of the presidential campaign, there doesn't seem to be a lot of enthusiasm for a change. In fact, a lot of the Democrats are confident that they are going to win and already believe the race is over. I would like to argue that they are wrong, but I have read the latest polling and it is not looking favorable for the Romney camp. I cannot even assume that they are oversampling Democrats.

So, if we're going to be looking at another four years of an Obama administration, it's time to take a look at how we are better off. Let's start with your home value. When you receive your tax bill for this year, you will certainly find that it has not gone down. But what about the value of your home?  Just because it's gone down, doesn't mean that your municipality will be looking for any less money as a result. How about the price of gas? It has only doubled, but needs to go up further in order to incentives us lazy Americans to switch to  green energy and alternative sources of renewable energy. Again, as far as we've come, there's still a long way to go.

How about your income? The sluggish economic growth has kept you from becoming one of those hated 1% people. The median income in America has fallen $4000 per family over the past four years further in during people who will be edging towards qualification of food stamps. According to the Democrats, food stamps and welfare payments is the best way to stimulate the economy. The results that Democrats have worked toward certainly supports that theory. How about that GDP? It has been bad for so long that 1.7% economic growth for quarter is looking very robust. That's the problem with us dumb, greedy Americans, we were looking for more prosperity to benefit ourselves. Not thinking of the greater good.

Americans are resigned to the absence of success and personal achievement. If we are successful, it is because we are greedy. Ad now, we don't even expect success.An e for effort is good enough. After all, if President Obama, who was elected as a savior or four years ago could not do any better, no one could've done better.

So, again we're finding ourselves listing to empty promises that will go unfulfilled in order to reelect the president. it sounds optimistic, just as it did four years ago. and will we be better off four years from now? at best, we can honestly say that we don't know the answer.
