Before You Vote…
What a hurricane takes seconds to destroy, will take people years to rebuild. Before you go out and vote, before you fall into either sides political rhetoric…take a real trip down memory lane…go online, pull and actually read the headlines from four years ago…read about the impending economic collapse,the millions upon millions that were going to be unemployed…about the coming Great Depression.
Check out the economic news stories from 2008 and 2009:
In our desire to move on, We often forget what got us in trouble in the first place and as a result fall right back into the same old mess! It makes no sense to go back to policies that crashed the whole worlds economy…the whole Worlds! Especially when our economy has turned around because of Obama’s new policies.
When I was a kid I used to love to build elaborate houses made of cards. I actually got pretty good at building them. It would take hours and hours to build those things. My siblings, of course, took great joy in knocking them down as soon as I was out of sight. I used to get so mad because I knew that it would take me hours and hours to rebuild. I couldn’t just flip a switch and make the house reappear. It would take a lot more time to rebuild than it did to destroy.
Our President is in a similar situation. He is trying to rebuild what was destroyed by bad economic policy that preceded him. He is turning it around, but it is going to take time. In our heart of hearts, I think most of us understand this. Give the President more time. Don’t give the reigns to people that have already said they are going to re-implement the policies that caused the crash in the first place.
