Desperation as election nears.

With some 12 days left till our election, Team Obama basically promising us 4 more years of the same economy crippling collectivist, Keynesian, big government bullshit, and all the LSM’s attempts to carry water for “THE WON” not working, the left is getting absolutely desperate. We are bombarded here in CT with class warfare commercials about how if Obama loses the bastards that will take over will basically help the rich soak us all.

Never mind that even the losers at HuffPo, in this lame attempt to spin the facts, admit that Wall Street had done far better under Obama than in all previous 8 Bush years combined, by 2011. Remember how the left told us the Bush years allowed Wall Street to rob the citizenry blind? Haliburton!!!11! So, 3 years of Team Blue fighting for the little guy, years of heavy Wall Street regulation which brought us such doozies as the Dodd-Franks 2K behemoth that all but guarantees our government will keep pushing home ownership lending as a social engineering tool, and bring us another economic meltdown, Wall Street did better.

And when even the Kossacks are admitting that the Fed’s policy of QE3 easing, done only so they can keep inflation down and prevent that from screwing up their nanny-welfare state spending as inflation would cause most tax dollars collected to be eaten up paying down interest on the $16 trillion of borrowed money, helps the rich more than the poor, you know your policies suck. It’s not accidental that you have the LSM producing lame ass excuses like this one to again shift blame from the results of the failed Keynesian wealth redistributionist policies of the last 4 years to blame tired old Boosh!

And yet, here we are again with another LSM bullshit class warfare piece intended to appeal to those that are jealous of what others have. The left is hell bent on capitalizing on base envy and greed to enrich themselves and their inner circle of selected buddies, while drastically increasing the number of people dependant on government for a piss poor daily subsistence, for the power it brings them. But hey, the bad guys are the people that want to unshackle the economy instead of controlling who gets to win and who gets to lose.

To quote Heinlein:

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”

The collectivists all but guarantee us this bad luck, but the elite figure when the shit hits the fan, they will keep the power and their standard of living, while the rest of us can live in this kind of paradise.

    Claiming the other side is desperate is the first sign of a desperate election campaign. :)

    When I see the Romeny campaign start talking about ludicorous stuff like a “War on Women” or “Romoney wants to steal your money and give it to the evil rich”, I might give this thought. Until then, I am pretty sure that Team Obama didn’t go nuclear because they have so many successes from the past 4 years to run on. Know what I am saying?

    Not if you are pro-life.

    Not if you want lower spending (likely still too much for my taste, but at least it’s not Obama-style spending)

    Not if you want to have the Administration take security seriously.

    There are plenty of other examples Hal. Are you saying that you believe Obama is a better choice, or are you saying that you think that Romney is not your best candidate if you could choose anyone?

    I hate the BS & manipulation that political seasons brings us. I’m not a fan of Obama at all, but I can still point out things he has said and done that I think favorably on.

    No, Obama would not be my choice. But neither would Romney. I also find it interesting you talk about lower spending when Romney, so far, has promised $2.8 trillion in new spending.

    …when Romney, so far, has promised $2.8 trillion in new spending.

    Don’t worry. Cutting funding for Planned Parenthood and PBS will do it. ;) Seriously though (well, I don’t think it is, but…), I’d imagine that he’s counting on growth for paying for most of the extra expenditures.

    Seriosly II (and really this time). I think that the next four years will be better financially, than the previous, regardless of the winner. The economy always bounces back. It’s more out of, than it is in, the presidents hands.

    wow clueless much? There have been numerous studies and polls that say small business specifically are NOT hiring because they are afraid of the costs associated with BO-care and his blatant anti-business stances.

    I think its been well established by now that Hal is a BO supporter, even if he wont admit it, though in my opinion voting for a 3rd party IS supporting BO. If his last foray into the subject didnt convince you then take a look back at all the pretzel twisting he did with his, “reasons to vote for/against” posts.

    Such as?
    Insufficient demand is what I have seen in business outlook surveys over the last three years (I linked to this a couple of weeks ago). And concerns over regs and taxs have been similar to under other Presidents, and lower than under some Republican Presidents. Again, I linked to the graphs some weeks ago.

    CM concern may be the same, but they ARE NOT HIRING. Concern yet you still hire people is fine, concern such that you think it best to NOT hire, is bad and what we have now.

    I was indicating that I don’t think that Romney will be a light spender, I just don’t think he will spend as much as Obama. Romney talks of getting our financial house in order, but his plans still lead us to high deficits. I don’t agree with everything Romney has a stated position on, but he’s a lot closer to my worldview than Obama.

    I guess I don’t understand your negative tone towards Romney. The choice is him or Obama, so why do you think it’s all bad if Romney gets in? I don’t think there is no difference in who is elected, as Kimpost suggested, but if Romney doesn’t drop government largess and regulations, then we will see little change in the way small business is conducted. I don’t see much change in the large corporate welfare. Both guys are bought and paid for there.

    I’m just hoping for smaller government impact in my life and Romney is closer to that goal than Obama.

    Romney probably is closer to my view than Obama as well. And it’s really not a negative attitude toward Romney, in particular. it’s a matter of what will Congress do? I don’t think they will exercise spending restraint with either of them but especially with a unified government.

    I am there too. But the thing is that we will get one or the other, and faced with that choice, it is clear whom I will pick: anyone but Obama. Fucking Jack Nicholson’s character from The Shining would get my vote before Obama or any other such filty America hating collectivist scumbag.

    It would be a poor business decision to hire additional people when there is insufficient demand for their product/service. The company I work for is a perfect example. Tax rates and regulations are as close to insignificant as it’s possible to get. When the demand for our services picks up (and it has been) we’ll hire. I’ve got a pile of CV’s on my desk at the moment.

    I made that point here many months ago and you agreed at the time. You’ve made the point a number of times since too. If Romney wins and get’s sufficient Congress support, there will be far more spending than if Obama wins but can’t get spending approved. Republicans in Congress will say yes to Romney but no to Obama, even if it’s for exactly the same thing. When the Dems are in power, spending is bad. When the GOP is in power, it’s not nearly as bad. That’s politics.

    I dunno. If he was born in Hawaii, then why did he release a forged (proven on this very site by CharChasm) birth certificate? And why doesn’t he release his college records?
