ROMNEY AND MONEY.
They are inseparable.
If there ever was the flukiest statement by a politician in the United States of America, it would be this:
"I'm not concerned about the very rich; they're fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90%, 95% of Americans right now who are struggling, and I'll continue to take that message across the nation." Mitt Romney (CNN, 02/02/12).
He is the one that is a multi-millionaire and running in the Republican Party nomination race for the second time, with several PACs (Political Action Committees) pulling in big bucks for his campaign to beat his own party mates, Newt Gingrich, Santorum and Paul in that race.
Where does he think all that money to back him is coming from? It is from big banks, financial Houses on Wall Street, corporations, millionaires and wealthy individuals like himself. They are the people he talks to every waking hour of his life.
He does not even know "the 90%, 95% of Americans," that he is talking about; but many people will tell him that they are the men and women in the military, in border patrol, in law enforcement, in construction, in the medical field as nurses, in Education as teachers and instructors......; they are the middle class and working people.
They are the ones that will sign up for "the draft", the very minute it is reactivated to get the young and the able bodied to protect America; and none of these kinds of persons will come out of his family. No, not voluntarily, if one will care to mention.
He and his wealthy friends are only thinking about having a "good return" on their investments, and moving their money around for that purpose. People like them will be busy talking "business", each and every morning; the "poor" will be the last thing to cross their minds.
The much talked about subject of "outsourcing" to China and the Far East is being done by them, and that is what is causing the American economy to be depleted of the investment capital it needed to help it to grow. The high unemployment being a by-product of a weak economy, as it is being seen in the country today.
The "poor having a safety net" is part of a statement Romney has made a day or so ago, but it is not an impromptu thought or thinking; it is part of the philosophy that he is carrying in his gumption all the time; that all business regulations must be shoved aside, for the rich must have the freedom to become richer.
"The poor? Who are they?" he is always asking. Why? Only because he does not know any poor people. PERIOD.
Americans must be aware that in an election year, the practice of moving investment capital around will get worse, and it will be done deliberately to help the choice of the wealthy to challenge President Barack Obama.
The media insiders, political strategists and professional pundits are already predicting a more sluggish economy and a higher rate of unemployment for the U.S. in 2012 (the election year, remember?).
How will they know that? They have connections with top ranking investors and investment companies in the country, commonly known as the "movers and shakers" in the financial world.
Where does the ordinary man in the street fit into all this?
His job will be telling the truth about people like Romney, who are ready, able and willing to buy their way to the very top, just to maintain control over the middle class and the working people of America; and that is to seize power, by gaining access to the U.S. presidency and the White House.
In other words, when a push comes to a shove in the future, Romney and his kind will say to the poor, who unfortunately are many,
"Go away. We don't know you. This is a free country; so, go help yourselves or do whatever you have to do to fend for yourselves,"
You may probably be saying, "...that will be the day." However, think again; as it can happen.
