False Beliefs and the Drive to keep them alive.

While thinking of Political candidates and who to choose do you see the harm created by the last 8 years of fabricated information? Do you see how the economy has been changed because the people with brains have scammed the American public by not being accountable for actions and the sale of goods and services people have been working for nothing. When you are in a negative cash flow situation you are working for nothing. The delusions that this is good for anyone is beyond comprehension. The Wealthy and the Elite are called to pay more to pay a fair share of the burden that has been created over the last 8 years. Many people have died for the many lies that have been spun and many people have bought things they didn't really need. There are fewer jobs and the job market will continue to shrink as the continuation of the flawed policies remain in effect. With many tax breaks the elite now complain that paying any tax is a punishment and who burdens the brunt of paying for the government and the workers providing that they all have health insurance on our dime? Who can go to a doctor for free? The Free Market system isn't free and the American Government has a flaw maybe two or even three or more... Are you thinking?

although I don't live in America I do believe it will be the most convincing liar that wins the election over there. Many British and American people are dying because of lies told by politicians and the rich in any country feel upset when they are asked to help the poor. Best not get going or I'll be here all night. The more people who realise liar and politician are one and the same the sooner things may get better.

You all just don't get it do you. And you talk about being smart people. Boy it sure is easy to point a finger at Bush, easier than the democrats that refuse to see what their own party is doing to them. Let me try this again.BUSH DOES NOT MAKE AND PASS THE LAW IN THIS COUNTRY. HE MAY GET A CHANCE TO TRY AND VETO ONE, BUT THEN THEY (THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS) JUST GOES BACK AND CHANGES THE WORDING ON IT AND PASSES IT ANYWAY. READ UP ON IT, THE PRESIDENT REALLY HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH IT. BUT LET'S POINT THE FINGER HIS WAY, LET'S PRETEND THAT POLSI AND FREDDIE MAC, AND THAT OTHER IDIOT, DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY WITH THE FAILED MORTGAGES. LET'S TURN A BLIND EYE ON WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHO IS WALKING WITH ALL THE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS, WOULDN'T BE DEMOCRATS WOULD IT. WHAT WAS THEY CALLED THE 3 MOST DANGEROUS PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON. NOW LET'S ADD A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT TO THIS MESS. WOW, ESPECIALLY AND IDIOT THAT TALKS A GOOD TALK BUT THAT IS ALL. Let's talk about the 920 million he wants to add to the budget, that is so far over drawn, better try googling to see where he wants to put this money. Why is it a democrat can't see what is right in front of their eyes, this man who wants to spread the wealth around as longs as it is your wealth, not his. I have never been anything but a democrat, up till Bush ran, and that is when I changed, the embrassment that the democrats have brought to this country, with their greed and you want to talk about the republicans, better look into your own back yard first.McCain tried to warn Bush years ago this was about to happen, but no dems said all is running fine, no problem. Well it appears to be that that was a lie, and yet, still Bush's fault. You all didn't have a complaint about him after 911, You know what I just come to realize, don't matter how long I talk or even scream, you just don't get it cause you don't want to see what is right in front of you face. So when you get this man in there, that don't even care about his family, so why should he care about you, and he turns you into something your aren't gonna like (AND OH YES IT'S COMING) Wasn't there a smooth talking man who was running for office in Cuba,he promised change. Now do you think the change he gave them was good, it's so good they risk their lives in little rafts to get out and away from there. But you want change you gonna get it, I just hope you can live with it, too damn bad I have to live with it too.

Can I politely remind bdugas that it is against Mylot rules to use capitals to make your point. Also that everyone is entitled to their opinion and if you do not agree it doesn't mean the other person is wrong.

A good part of the economic crisis has been brought on by Americans themselves and has nothing to do with either political party. For years (many more than the last 8), Americans have lived well beyond their means and become dependent on credit and on the government. Prospective homeowners took out loans they knew they couldn't afford to pay back and now blame it all on the mortgage lenders (who definitely practiced poor business, but didn't hold anyone's nose to the fire to sign on the dotted line).

You take the loan that is available and if you are lucky you can contract or refinance another contract at a fixed rate. I could go on about the faulty mortgage industry and the cost to homeowners because of the corruption in the system. I have a simple cure for this problem.

Maybe so - but you know whether or not you can actually make the payment on a long-term basis. There is more to owning a home that just making the mortgage payment, many don't take into consideration that there is still taxes, insurance and maintenance that goes along with home ownership. Many also do not think that at some point there might be problems with maintaining employment or other emergencies that require attention - too many people owe more payments that their current salaries can ever cover.

So it is always the Republican's fault? The reason that America is in such bad financial shape is because they have charged things beyond their ability to pay. Buying on credit is fine if you set yourself a limit and say that you will pay it off in one year or two years if it is a big ticket item, but that ensures that you do not pay the minimum payment. If you want a house and cannot afford to buy one, ask Habitat for Humanity or call Extreme Makeover, but in the former, you have to be prepared to use a little sweat equity and work on your neighbor's house and in the second, you have to be able to deserve it, like you helped other people in some good way. You can buy what you want, but you have to pay for it.

Money to the Elite is nothing but they sure do fuss if you ask them for any... Many people don't pay for what they want... Does money have any real value?
