No. Not Joe The Plumber. He was the "Fifteen minutes of fame guy," from the 2008 election. We need to bail out the little guy. The guy who works from sun up to sun down trying to scratch out a living. The guy who goes home to his beautiful wife and family for dinner, and then works some more. Be it on his wife's' honey do list, a kids broken bike, or the computer, in an effort to make a little extra cash. The whole time he is working, he is hopping and praying for that one big break that will put him over the top. Maybe that one big break is a bail out.
Now this is not going to be a political rant, but I can't help but mention a few things that strike me as funny relating to all these bail out proposals. Politics just happen to be at the root of them.
The first thing I would like to mention is this "big three" bail out. Why is it that we little guys (male and female) are the ones stuck with the tab bailing out these auto companies? No one was throwing billions of dollars at me when I got laid off and my new business was not yet large enough to support my family. I was two inches from losing my house and when I could no longer afford my truck payment, one of the big three had no problem taking my truck from me. They had no sympathy for me. Why should I have it for them? Well, I don't. And I resent the fact that the government has put a gun to my head and picked my pocket so that they can give my money, as well as yours, to people who did not earn it and do not deserve it.
Same thing for the "bank" bail out. We little guys are getting stuck with that note as well. After they handed the money over to the banks, what did the banks do with it? They sure as heck did not use it as they said they would, to help the little guy through these hard times. No, in an effort to make themselves look better, they put it in their books and left it there.
No wonder we little guys have no money left at the end of the month. We have it spent for us by the imperial government, who use our money to pay off other peoples mistakes. But that money was never even intended to bail anyone out. It was just a way to gain political favor or to cover up previous mistakes made by both parties..
Ya, sure. The government claims to be doing this so that we will not have to suffer through a true depression. Well, if it wasn't for the piss poor actions taken by both parties, they would not have us paying to bail ourselves out of the mess they got us in.
This is no longer is an issue of a bail out. It is now nothing more than a hand out and everyone wants a piece of this "free" money. The sad part is, this money is not free and all the bail out programs are nothing more than a stall at best and a fleece at worst.
So what can we do about it? Well, it is about time that we all get together and do something. Fortunately, a man named Herman Cain has set up a way for us to be able to do this. Mr.Cain said "The voice of "we the people" has been hijacked by partisan politics, government bureaucrats, and the influence of money on elections and legislation. To take back our government, we must be able to un-elect members of Congress on a timely basis, and dramatically influence their decisions while they are in office." I agree.
To bring this about, Mr. Cain has set up the Intelligent Thinkers Movement (HITM)
HITM (sounds like, hit them) is being set up to...
1. Create a rapid response network of citizens
Email, phone calling post, ready to send post cards
2. Organize citizens by Congressional districts (435)
100,000 activists per district
3. Issue C.A.I.N. Alerts on key initiatives moving through Congress relating to HITM key issues
Let's bail out the little guy. The best way to do this is to take back our government.
