It’s a funny thing today to see the battles waging against “liberals” and “conservatives” raging for either “free market capitalism” or “government-controlled industry”—but what if our commonly perceived choices aren’t all that different?
Despite the logical perception and the apparent differences between Obama and Romney, Jon Stewart does a great job showing how “socialist” many prominent “conservatives” really are.
If Obama’s policies and core philosophy is so flawed, and Romney shows a multitude of similar positions, why are so many placing so much faith in him?
In the end this is a Strong Word: “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.” Psalm 146:3
He’s also painfully un-hip on economics, does not grasp the free market and is in favor of bailouts: “Some quantitative easing (bailouts) made sense.” (see video).
To top it off he’s a meddling do-gooder who thinks that good behavior and morality are the result of good laws, not inspiration from God, strong character or even will power: “Individuals can’t go it alone. There is no society that I’m aware of where we have had radical individualism and succeeds as a culture.” (again, in the vid).
One candidate has true differentiation. One candidate understands our economy and has an amazing track record of predicting the future of the world, one candidate has the most support from the troops because he understand’s the primary drivers of terrorism and is a veteran himself.
I rest my case, for the day.
