You give the American people much more credit than I do. The message of the Tea Party hit home to many. "It's my money and I want to keep it." I was surprised no one pointed out that comes from a TV ad, "It's my money and I want it now!"
About 1970 I decided to take an English course and the first assignment was to fill in the blank and write.
"The greatest driving force for man is _________." I filled in the blank with "Greed". I never saw an instructor get so upset. It was the only paper she read in class. I shrugged it off as hitting a sore spot.
Remember the actor that could do nothing wrong. I hate to call him an actor because most people that watched movies he was in watched because of the others. I still think George Murphy was great.
Back to Ronnie, no respect intended, he started out as a Democrat, later after the change put California on the brink of folding and people thought he was wonderful. I’m not sure what Nancy did to him; but I can imagine her saying, “If you want that to happen again you’ll have to become a conservative Republican.” “I can do that, I can do that!” Hell, he was the head of the Actors Guild, a union.
The cost of living numbers dropped and again he was a hero. Did they really drop? Yes the numbers dropped but the cost of living continued to climb. His administration had removed items with major price increases and replaced some with items which did drop.
It really doesn’t matter what a member of Congress does or does not do in office. They wait until election time and cry, “Big Government is taking MY money and I want to keep it.” They really don’t care about anything or anyone, only themselves. People will vote for their message.
