Mit Romney, Capitalism and the Presidency
Is Capitalism evil?
Mit Romney has been criticizing the Obama campaign for ridiculing him for being a Capitalist and for being rich. Mit doesn't feel it's ok to be hated by unsuccessful people, for being successful.
He's got a good point in respect to the idea that America is the land of opportunity and everyone has a dream of becoming rich and living an incredible life. That's even part of the Constitution- the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The problem is that we're not talking about what to recommend to an 8 year old who wonders what they want to be when they grow up or to a high schooler as guidance for a career path.
We are talking about the President of the United States, who will be making the most significant decisions affecting the quality of life for all Americans.
Greed is good, right?
When choosing who will be the President of the United States, do the majority of Americans want someone who, like Bush, will wage war against other countries needlessly, costing a trillion dollars and thousands of innocent lives, just so his family and those of his buddies can make millions and billions of dollars on investments in war machine companies... or...
Do we want a person who has proven to have as his main interest helping average people improve their quality of life?
Share the wealth
Do we want a plutocracy or an America ruled by the few rich and powerful, as indicated in the book by Jim Marrs Rule by Secrecy that is only interested in treating Americans like cows or chickens, simply using us to make more and more money and keep us enslaved as servants of their greedy agendas or do we want a President like Obama who actually cares about the other 99% of Americans and treats them as equals and as humans who have feelings and goals and inspirations of their own?
There's no reason to believe in the "Zero Sum" theory of the banking and investing world, that for one guy to make money another has to lose. In theory if all businesses had valuable products or services and grew at a respectable rate, as any well managed business should, then every person buying stock in it, should be able to make a profit when they sell it down the line, without the guy they sell it to losing their shirt when they try to sell it later.
The problem is when dishonesty and deception enter the ranks and I think we've learned enough from the financial meltdown of 2008, to know that many people in the banking and securities industries are less than honest in their dealings and trades.
So if we ask what kind of person is Mit Romney... is he going to help the other 99% of Americans or screw them, what do you think. His record with the Bain Capital company answers that question. We know he will use deception and sly of hand and blame others, at the cost of the other 99% of Americans, to make another buck or another couple of million dollars, without giving it a thought.
