Lesson from a Conservative: Fred Thompson discusses the Economy

Fred Thompson discusses the Economy in no uncertain terms ... Stop what you are doing for a little over 8 Min's and listen up! It's well worth it for those willing to draw parallels with Australia.

"...The Government has figured out what we should do...more borrowing, more spending and consuming. That's right we can spend our way to prosperity ... We can bail out irresponsible home buyers, and big business that can't cut it in the marketplace and the rest of us can buy more stuff ... with our economic stimulus money..."

I'm sorry to say it but, he wouldn't have stood a chance either.
It just was not the time or the year for a republican to win.

It's like we've all gone mad or something. I understand that if people hang on to their money and don't spend it that business will suffer and so will the rest of us. But what guarantee is there that if we follow the government's advice and spend, spend, spend, that the economy won't tank anyway and we'll be left with squat in the bank account.

Besides when you listen to the financial boffins, they're always telling us to save more than you spend and avoid wasting your money on useless things, so we're getting mixed messages here. The way i see it, push all these folks aside and figure it out yourself and do according to your life cos at the end of the day, if it all goes up in smoke and flames, you'll be the one left with the problem.
