Wouldn't it be fastinating, and also very surprising, if Romney is about 20% behind Obama about the time of the Republican Ding-bat Convention gets to be about a month or less away; and then he publically decides that he no longer wants the nomination for President?

However, if he is about 20% behind, and then he accepts the nomination, he is unquestionably a JERK!

I am 67 years old - and part Baby-boomer I suppose - and I find the many mysteries of life more and more confusing as I go along and evermore get rapidly older.

For instance:

When a rather large stone of thrown into a small pond of water, it makes a rather tall ripple in the liquid at first.

The ripple continues to grow larger and larger in circumference as it expands outward, but the size of the tallness of the ripple becomes smaller and smaller until it disappears from view completely.

However, all of the civilized history of mankind seems to be exactly the same as the previously mentioned ripple made by the stone falling into the pond!

Whether it be the Mongols, the Chinese, the Arabs, the British, the Spaniards, the French, the Germans, the Soviets, or the what-ever, they have all fallen from their very high perch of social domination at the time of their power.

My question I want everyone to think about today is: Are the American corporate powers which control our federal government beginning to do this very same thing to the United States, while much of the rest of the civilized world is moving scientifically and/or socially ahead of this nation?

I am beginning to really love this presidential race, and I am not a Democrat as such!

If Romney supports a moderate position, he loses the support of the TEA Party members!

On the other hand, if Romney supports the TEA Party position, he almost completely loses the political middle!

It is a "lose-lose" situation for him!!!

The United states of America was founded by LIBERALS, RADICALS, REACTIONARIES, REVOLUTIONARIES even!

They wrote The Declaration of Independent and the Constitution of the United States.

This country became the FIRST DEMOCRACY in the entire world!!!

And a Conservative at the time: a Torie.

Dakota:

"Our country has come to" the majority of citizens who think like you, and others like you - including me - are so very busy paying no heed to what is going on in this nation, that when the far right-wing Ding-bats united and vote, THEY WIN!!!

It is not their fault, however, the FAULT IS OURS ALONE!

The constant socialistic/capitalistic argument in this country isn’t really a disagreement at all.
It is merely an age old vivid misunderstanding of human nature! And this figures, because the socialistic argument in this country is presented by someone who believes in socialism, and/or the capitalistic position is presented by someone who strongly believes in capitalism.

EVERY MODERN SOCIETY HAS BOTH CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM, HOWEVER!

The constant differences and resulting conflicts may be explained by the late motivational psychologist, Abraham Maslow, Ph.; but if someone wants to fully understand Maslow, they must give up both political positions for a moment!

Maslow postulated that human behavior is determined by which Need Level each human - or society - they find themselves functioning on: Physical Needs, Safety Needs, Belongingness (Nationalism), Esteem Needs, and finally Self Actualization (which doesn’t concern us here).

These five Needs are in a hierarchy. In other words, someone who is starving to death - function on the Physical Need Level - is not going to be interested in buying a brand new car - buying the brand new car being on the Esteem Level.

And the same is true regarding Socialism and Capitalism!

If a country has the vast majority of its citizens hurting for fuel to keep warm during a long winter (Physical Needs), or enough food stuffs to sustain themselves (Safety Needs), they are going to be receptive to a Socialistic policy regarding any of these two Needs.

Examples include the rationing of gasoline in this country during World War II, and the rationing of some food stuffs during the same era. In other words, if it is necessary for human life for the majority of citizens of any country, then its delivery is usually Socialistic in nature.

The kibbutz in Israel, during the very late 1940s and early to mid 50s, is another classic example of Socialism helping a general population overcome some very severe physical and safety hardships.

So when there are shortages and/or dangers occurring on the Physical and/or the Social Levels, Socialistic policies are usually adopted by that society; and these Needs must be met before the Nationalistic and/or the Esteem Needs are perceptually dealt with by the majority of individuals in any political society.

On the other hand, the Nationalistic and Esteem Needs (the third and fourth Need Levels) are hardly life threatening, so a Capitalistic Economic System works to the benefit of the entire society as compared to a Socialistic System.

So now the question is: Where do we place medical health care in this country?

Do we do as every other civilized country has done and Nationalize it, or do we keep it unaffordable and/or unavailable to many of our citizens?

The Presidential debates later this fall are going to be veeerrrry interesting!

Instead of constantly criticizing President Obama and his policies, Romney will have to expound as to just what he would do in these situations.

He will have to come up with some concrete answers for the many problems facing this nation, instead of just criticizing what Obams is trying to do!

I can hardly wait!!!

Several very ancient farmers grew corn, barley, collected milk from cows and eggs from chickens, and grew other food stuffs; they also cut lumber and built their own homes.

In other words, they actually fed and housed each other by trading their goods and services.

The one day along came a very cleaver “shiest-er,” and he told the farmers that he had this supposedly precious metal which he called “gold”- which is really almost worthless as a commodity - and that they might borrow this for his home - really a bank – for some of their food and building supplies; and that they – the farmers – might then use this “gold” to trade with each other their food stuffs and building supplies with.

But the “shiest-er” said that there would be “inflation” at times, and/or “depressions” at other times, and even though the farmers had plenty of food stuffs and building supplies to trade, they did not have enough “gold” to trade with!

So the poor farmers went without food and/or building supplies at times.

The “shiest-ers” were very happy though, because they had much more wealth than they really knew what to do with, and they really didn't do nearly as much work as the farmers did to earn this wealth.

The “sheist-ers” had VERY big houses, and they drove around in their shiny new autos, as well.

Then along came a fella name “Tricky Dick” Nixon, and he made the “sheist-ers' even happier, because “Tricky Dick” told the “sheist-ers” that they no longer needed the “gold”; all they needed was “FAITH” alone, and this then was put on the worthless “money” which the farmers used to trade food and building supplies with.

Well, one day the economy of the nation was so very, very bad, that it seems the farmers will soon decide just what they are going to do!

And I am wondering just what that will be; if anything!

78&^

I have been slightly incorrect - periodically - on this forum at times, but it has not been because I misinterpreted the relevant facts regarding the situation; it was due to the fact that I was not aware of ALL of the facts regarding the situation.

Case in point was my stated belief that the Democrats would hold the House of Representatives after the 2010 congressional elections.

Only a little over 30% of the American voting age population actually vote in Off-Year Elections, and I was firmly aware that the TEA Party candidates were running against the traditional Democratic House of Representative members in the industrial heartland of mid-American.

Had all of the traditional voters voted in the 2010 election, the TEA Party Republicans would have lost badly - again – but that is not what happened in 2010.

The average voter in the industrial heartland of this country, they were very angry with the traditional Democrat s who,“supposedly,” represented them in Congress, so many of them decided to vote for the Republican opponent this time and “teach them a lesson”!

Little did most of the traditionally Democratic voters, in the industrial heartland of America, think that they were voting for anyone but a more traditional Republican, and to their regret they elected a TEA Party Representative who had won the primary in their district in the Republican Party in 2010.

Now the voters in the industrial heartland of this country are VERY MUCH AWARE of just who the TEA Party person IS that they helped to elect!!!

I presently wonder what is going to happen on Election Day this November!!!

Did you know that Abe Lincoln was the first President of today's
Republican Party, and that South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union due to the Lincoln's victory.

Today, however, South Carolina in the CENTER of the Republican Party; just ask Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)!!!

I guess the Republican Party should have "gone to pot" during the late 1960's and early 70's, instead of being part of Nixon's "Southern Strategy."

Things would be much better today had it!

Many of the American people relax now instead of doing the dishes every night. They, or course, now have an automatic dish washer.

Other Americans no longer wash their cars, they take their auto to an automatic car wash.

Almost all Americans today are employing more and more modern equipment which allows them to relax more and more.

However, medical doctors say that we need more daily exercise to help our hearts, to reduce our blood pressure and not have a stroke, to ....!

So the American people go to the store and buy some sort of exercise equipment, which they then use instead of washing their care and/or doing the dishes!

In the meantime we don't have enough money to go on the extended trip we always wanted to go on, we don't have the money to ....!

Did you ever get the feeling that the American advertisers has us really "hoodwinked"!!!

The unemployment rate in several states - including Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania among others - has gone down in the last few years, and they are now well below the national average for unemployment.

The only trouble is, the Ding-bat Republican Governors of these several states, are in violent disagreement with the Republican Prsidential candidate - Ding-bat Romney - for criticizing the HIGH unemployment in these states!

Go gettum Ding-bat Mitt!!!

A Republican/Conservative is much too often a pimple on the a$s of progress, while a Democrat or Liberal is often asking you for tax dollars for something which is totally un-needed!

To adhere to one of these two political positions is a travesty to human logic!

The only rational alternative is to be a moral PRAGMATIST, meaning you take EVERY issue independently, and then you support or oppose it on its merits alone!!!

I am 67 years old - and part Baby-boomer I suppose - and I find the many mysteries of life more and more confusing as I go along and evermore get rapidly older.

For instance:

When a rather large stone of thrown into a small pond of water, it makes a rather tall ripple in the liquid at first.

The ripple continues to grow larger and larger in circumference as it expands outward, but the size of the tallness of the ripple becomes smaller and smaller until it disappears from view completely.

However, all of the civilized history of mankind seems to be exactly the same as the previously mentioned ripple made by the stone falling into the pond!

Whether it be the Mongols, the Chinese, the Arabs, the British, the Spaniards, the French, the Germans, the Soviets, or the what-ever, they have all fallen from their very high perch of social domination at the time of their power.

My question I want everyone to think about today is: Are the American corporate powers which control our federal government beginning to do this very same thing to the United States, while much of the rest of the civilized world is moving scientifically and/or socially ahead of this nation?

The union members will go where ever there are employment opportunities, so changes in the fuel we use isn’t going to make very much difference for them - they will just be employed by solar power plants, by wind power plants, by ethanol powered automobiles, by ….–but the white collar employees, and the many stock shareholders, they will lose a little bit, so in America at least, they are going to spend millions and millions of dollars supporting Congressional candidates of BOTH political parties to STOP industrial and/or technical advancements – that is, IF changes in the electoral process are not quickly forthcoming!.

In the meantime, this nation falls further and further behind much of the rest of the world in terms of newly modern technology!!!

And that brings me to a final question: WILL THE VOTERS OF THE UNITED STATES CHANGE THIS?

Wow!

I was just listening to CNN's scientific news, and a new part of the atom was just discovered by the Super Collider in France and Switzerland (I forgot what scientists now call this new piece!)
when it should be equal given the "Big Bang."

Anyway, it would explain why the universe is expanding by INCREASING its rate of speed, and why different sections of the universe are moving away from each other at different rates of speed

No light can escape may escape from the universe you know, but this new piece of the atom would seem to indicate there are OTHER universes!!!

This would go a long way in explaining the different sections of this universe moving away from where the "Big Bang" took place at different speeds, and it would also explain why the galaxies of the university are increasing their speed rather than decreasing their speed as gravity would indicate!

The Presidential election is now just several short months away, and many of the average voting Americans are beginning to pay more and more attention to what each of the two candidates are saying.

And just “What?” are they saying about the future of the United States?

Well, President Obama has said very little about what he has accomplished in the last 3 ½ years, but as your may see from the web page on the Internet at:< http://search.mywebsearch.com/mywebsearch/GGm ... ; he really has done a great deal!(Long, I know!)

It goes from the recent auto bailout saving Detroit and Central America literally millions and millions of jobs, to the ever growing popularity of the just enacted medical health legislation!

But this is just the beginning, as Obama has accomplished much more in the short time - 3 ½ years - he has been in office, than George Bush did in his total of eight years!

But he has just never advertised this fact – until now that is!

Mitt Romney on the other hand, started as the Governor of Massachusetts a state run medical health plant for the state, and it is working very well with most of the state’s population now able to afford and see a medical doctor when one is needed.

Also on the other hand, today the TEA Party Republicans are very much against literally any government having anything to do with medical healthcare for the people of this great nation, and so now is Mitt Romney who is running for the Presidency of America!

President Obama literally saved millions and millions of jobs in the American auto industry – in fact, he saved the whole auto industry itself – by giving them a temporary government loan over the objections of Mitt Romney and the TEA Party Republicans, who both said,“Let the American auto industry go broke”!

The TEA Party Republicans, and supposedly now Mitt Romney, are in favor of eliminating Social Security, they are in favor of eradicating Medicaid and Medicare, they are in favor of eliminating …..! In fact, they often say that they want to make the federal government much, much smaller.

But they are in favor of making very sure that every pregnancy goes to full term, and that the federal government will enact and control this legislation! A smaller federal government though!!!???

I am definitely NOT a traditional Democrat BY ANY MEANS: however, I ABSOLUTELY deplore the nonsense being literally preached by the TEA Party Republicans and the presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and I hope and trust that this guest editorial WAKES YOU UP TO JUST WHAT THE 99% ARE REALLY FIGHTING TO KEEP!!!
