I was talking to one of my old high school buddies, Matt Barbis today and we were talking about the Mid-Terms and why I think he should run for Congress. We were talking about the operating budget of his organization, The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation (which I might add I am now a proud board member of) and I said he should run for Congress because he manages the finances of the organization so well. He said, yeah, I don’t waste money. I told him that could be his slogan if he ran for office. We both chuckled but isn’t that the truth?
I would love to have someone in office who knew the value of a dollar. Not just going back to Uncle Sam’s printing presses and making some more. At the rate the US is going our money will have less value than monopoly money. If our deficits get any bigger, maybe the dollars should being printed in funny money colors. Its not worth as much anymore so why not? If the US government doesn’t care about the black hole of spending it has created than why not just deface the very currency they are using by printing it in different colors? I think magenta for the $100 would be nice…..
I’ve been speaking with a lot of my contacts and they are telling me they don’t think the Democrat losses will be as large as anticipated. Why? Because the Tea Party could be the GOP spoiler splitting up the vote. I guess we have to wait and see.
I love election night and politics. During a Presidential year I am working around the clock and with each primary I’m on the phones at midnight to see if a candidate wants to go on the air with us that morning. Its fun. This election will be interesting because so many things are on the line. Our economic future is in the balance. Voters need to recognize they have to vote for what is best for our nation. She is sick right now. Bloated with debt and weak from a jobless “recovery”. She needs to be nurtured back to health. A balanced diet of cutting spending and entitlements and incentivizing businesses to get back in the game is in order and needs to be followed religiously. When we go into the voting booths Nov. 2, we are essentially doctors prescribing a medication for the United States of America. The fate of our nation is in our hands.
