Campaign Observations

I've noticed just a couple of things that I feel the need to point out. One, I find President Obama just too elite to represent myself and the people I know. He just comes across above "it all." That would be great, if he wasn't also one of the many folks digging the hole while making ridiculous, empty promises. Now, setting aside empty promises, we have Michelle Bachmann making talking points of empty issues. I look at her and think she seems even more superficial and shallow than Sarah Palin, if that's even possible. Next, we have Herman Cain, who I really was kind of liking until he came up with this 9-9-9 tax deal. That only helps the big corporate guys and is going to make everything cost a fortune with a national sales tax. Wow! Can you see it now? A national sales tax on top of state and local? So a loaf of bread or dozen eggs would have say, about 17% tax on top of it's inflated price. Great plan there, Herman! The GOP has come up with so many "winners" that Newt Gingrich's numbers are actually climbing . . . And finally, in nearly last place comes Rick Perry, who just last month was the "man of the hour." He is suggesting a 20% flat tax. I'm not sure where the teavangelicals get their doctrine, but this is exactly the tax that Pharaoh placed upon the people through the time of the famine. Anybody else seen the pictures of Texas? Looks like famine country to me . . . How can folks talking about being so Scriptural not see that Pharaoh was on the wrong side of the plan? To impose the exact same plan as Pharaoh and call it blessed is ludicrous. By the way, one fifth is the same as 20%!
Where are the reasonable, respectable politicians?
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones. Torah of Holy Scripture
