Everything in the world, and the world itself, can be considered a "system". Our government, our economy, our nation are systems. They work on a the principle of things being connected: people, money, power, or even voters, politicians and policies. When you make a change in one place it gets reflected in another. That's why this latest statement from the presidential-wannabe is fucking frightening beyond all reason...
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is calling for "something dramatic" to help the economy recover, but he's not saying exactly what.[..]
"I can absolutely make the case that now is the time for something dramatic and it is not the time to grow government. It's the time to create the incentives and the opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses big and small to hire more people and that's going to happen," Romney said an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."
Systems, all systems do *not* respond well to sudden and extreme measures. Yank the wheel hard in a car that's travelling on the highway if you don't believe me. Better yet, don't actually do that, just imagine doing it. I think you can get the picture.
From boats, to planes, to space shuttles, sudden and extreme change is bad. Earthquakes are bad. Tidal waves are bad. And dicking with the economy though extreme measures is also bad.
Frankly I don't know what Romney has in mind, or even if he has anything in mind at all but people need to THINK for a moment and realize that change, for the sake of looking effective, is not necessarily the right thing. Especially in something as massive and interconnected as the American economy.
I'm sure that Romney, as a person with enormous wealth (100's of millions) doesn't have to care really if his policies backfire. He's safe and secure, as are the people who support him, regardless of how the average American fares. Not only doesn't he represent the 99%, he has no fucking clue at to what it means to have a car loan, a mortgage, or a visa bill. Politics is a nice little game for him to play, and when he's done he still gets to sit back and eat cake. Even if the rest of us struggle to buy bread.
