The one good thing with the presidential candidate Ron Paul, because everything isn’t exclusively black or white, is his talk about ending the stimulus.
Unfortunately, he also wants to end the Fed, which proves he is at best an incompetent economically, or just an anti-American.
The stimulus, paired with both borrowing huge amounts of money from other nations and printing money, is the second greatest plague our country is facing, right behind ethnomasochism.
The principle of a stimulus is to inject money in the country, mostly to middle/lower classes (99%) in order to stimulate consumption. It can take many forms, but it mostly involves a governmental intervention, statism at its best, and consists of injecting money to the middle/lower classes.
The stimulus is what encourages ethnomasochism, or more precisely it hides the consequences of ethnomasochism, especially the economic ones. Needless to say that in our self-hating country, ethnomasochim and stimulus come hand in hand.
The stimulus paired with ethnomasochism is what causes foreign countries to occupy American territory, receive all the American dollars and destroy American culture, via foreign films notably.
Once again, it illustrates perfectly the tendency of our politicians and other governmental officials to break the thermometer thinking that it will make the heat go down. Disinformation at its best, classic.
Our politicians routinely confuse causes and consequences. Medically, they would fight the symptoms and not the disease as the medieval doctors who vigorously practiced bloodletting on any illness.
Without the stimulus, American people would have acknowledged a long time ago the dangers of ethnomasochism and economic unpatriotism. If the government wasn’t borrowing left and right in order to inject money in our crumbling economy, or relentlessly printing money to maintain standards of living for the American people.
As I said before, there are two kinds of consumption, earned and borrowed. Without the stimulus, American people would have to rely on earned consumption. That means produce more (A LOT MORE) and stop the import lunacy.
The good news is that no matter what, the stimulus is going to end.
The bad news is that the masses will once again blame the wrong causes.
To the 99% wussies that think life is hard NOW, just wait until the continual stimulus ends and the Chinese and Europeans take us over…
