Days Such As These: Wall Street Uncertainties
By: Marie Jon'
Our people in Congress who contributed to the Wall Street uncertainties must take their share of the blame. They have been exposed by new media pundits and conservative talk radio. The old drive-by-media will not be able to spin the culprits out of this problem. American voters have sufficient time to learn the truth before Election Day.
The people responsible for the fiscal mess lack good judgment, trustworthiness and character. We must extricate them and not allow their ilk into power again.
It is obvious that the Democrat party is not capable of exercising stewardship of our country in any capacity. They have become impacted by their own mean-spiritedness. Their intellect is stunted by an extreme liberal ideology; they are no longer able to aid their own country in time of war or peace.
For decades, Democrats have aggressively engaged in social engineering for their own political gains. They are guilty of using big government to do their dirty work. In the process, they hurt the minority people who unknowingly allow themselves to be taken advantage of.
America was not built upon socialism, and Americans don’t want the Democrats’ “two Americas.” Everyone in this country can become whatever they desire with hard work and personal perseverance. We can no longer afford the Democrat’s divisive ways.
As result of government intervention into our capitalist system, financial institutions many believed were invincible are in danger of collapsing. There is a simple lesson to be learned: We all must learn to live within our means. People bought homes without having sufficient funds to make their house payments. What happened to the gift of home ownership that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac supposedly gave them?
If people want a better status in life, they must earn it. Though we are responsible for our own lives as well as giving our neighbors a helping hand when needed, the onus is upon those who desire a better lifestyle to strive for it. America is at her best when watching others succeed. However, we create our own destiny with the choices we make in life, good or bad. There is always tomorrow to start anew.
No matter what befalls our great nation, we will recover and move forward. There are changes coming, and soon. John McCain and Sarah Palin will do some incredible house cleaning after they take office. These two humble mavericks will give America back to the people. Both deserve your vote because they have shown that they are willing to work for you. They are upright and dedicated.
Prepare yourselves. There will be more caterwauling from the Fifth column. But be assured that President McCain will not allow any more harm to our country or her people.
It is time for every citizen to come back to America. Patriotism is making a comeback along with a hockey mom who bakes a great apple pie. She is beautiful, intelligent and, if necessary, ready to be on stand-by for the president.
It is apparent that people are fed up with listening to those responsible for our fiscal debacle blame others. There awaits a monumental surprise for those who will not take their medicine for the current crisis in which we find ourselves. Indeed. Just hold on and wait until we vote come in November.
Middle America has already begun to rise up. They are voicing their common sense opinions. They see gutsy Republicans standing tough. Americans understand that we must take care of the mess we’re in, but we are going to begin the process off on the correct path. The people are behind the Republicans who will not allow a bailout using the taxpayers’ hard earned money foolishly.
As far back as 2003, The New York Times scolded President G. W. Bush for daring to bring the matter we are facing today to the fore. Bush warned congress of his deep concerns about the way Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac was doing business. The media had their agenda to peddle, and the warning that Bush heralded was never acted upon. Bush did not give license to those who would plunder our policies.
The response from Rep. Barney Frank and others addressing the calamity seen today is found in their own words.
“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not facing any kind of financial crisis.”
“The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.” â€” Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts.
“I don’t see much other than a shell game going on here, moving something from one agency to another and in the process weakening the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing.” â€” Representative Melvin L. Watt of North Carolina
It is amazing that Sen. Barack Obama’s Democrats blame President Bush and Senator John McCain for their own negligible actions. Since 9/11 our economy has been humming right along in spite of what took place on that unforgettable day, thanks to President Bush.
McCain wrote legislation in 2005 in an attempt to fix Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Democrats voted it down. The problems we face today will not be repeated under the leadership of President John McCain.
Despite the attempts and the warning that began in 2003, the abuse and waste of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac continued. There were those who tried to protect us with their wise and prudent counsel, but the Democrats in charge would not have anything to do with them.
My friends, keep the faith. We are a strong resilient people who always rise from the worst adversities. We have done it before, during the Great Depression. President Bush reminded us that we are facing consequences; however, we are nowhere near what took place during the worldwide economic spiral that began in 1929 and ended in the early 1940′s.
With the Almighty’s help and two honest humble servants, America will regain her confidence. Deep down inside we are a people of pioneer stock, no matter where our ancestors originally came from. Every once in a while, we get to show our inbred goodness and fortitude. On days such as these there will be no exceptions.
