Those of you who have followed Rockin’ On the Right Side (thank you!) through its infancy know that my main concern is our nation’s fiscal viability. No, make that fiscal survival.
And you know that Mitt Romney was not my favorite presidential candidate. In fact, I was solidly in the Cain camp in the early going, as he led the charge against corruption and the crazy growth in our bloated federal government. 9-9-9! Sadly, Cain was taken out by a dirty Chicago-style maneuver, one of many ugly tricks I have watched in horror in my virgin year of full-contact politics.
So when Romney filtered through as the last Republican standing, I, like many of my brethren, fell in line, knowing that anybody — Elmer Fudd, Curly of the Three Stooges, Rodney Dangerfield – ANYBODY would handle our national piggy-bank better than Barack Obama.
Last time around, we conservatives held our noses and voted for John McCain. I hoped that Romney would not be as oderiferous.
And then, last week, Romney picked Ryan. That told me he is serious about tackling THE BIG PROBLEM: the debt, deficit, and economy.
And now, Romney says “Heck yes, let’s audit the Fed.” WOO HOO! He really does get it!
I know, my man Cain didn’t think a Fed audit was necessary. And Ron Paul – bless his heart, he is so right on so many issues – was just not viable as a world leader. But he was SO right about auditing the Fed. The damage done by the Federal Reserve from 2008 through today will be required reading for economics and history students for generations to come.
Let’s not stop at an audit. Let’s figure out who these guys are, who they work for, who profits from their actions, what possible benefit can come from holding interest rates to zero, how watering down the value of the US dollar by printing fiat currency is a good thing, and . . . why the entire free world is their BITCH!
Mitt Romney – Paul Ryan. There may be hope for this nation after all.
