An Analysis of the Presidential Candidates

Insecurity about the economy and jobs has caused something called “the paradox of thrift”. People are saving money for “a rainy day” rather than spending it. Demand for goods and services are therefore down which decreases production and jobs. Hence a stagnating economy.

All of the President’s stimulus plans have not worked. Spending money on government projects for purposes of jobs has not helped much. Except to increase the deficit. Which devalues our currency in the world and can only contribute to inflation. Oil prices are up…. causing transportation prices to go up … causing food prices to go up. One can call this stagflation!

Does that mean I support Romney? Not necessarily. Romney is something of an enigma to me. I have no clue what he would do to fix the economy. Generalizations like his successful experience in the private sector or that he will be more pro-business are meaningless without details. I do not see any specifics to indicate how he will get the economy moving again. Right now it’s all talk.

The bottom line for me is that I have no endorsement yet. I am not happy with either candidate at the moment.  With Israel being off the table in this election for the reasons I stated above – unless I can be convinced that Romney’s plan for improving the economy  makes more sense than Obama’s policies – I remain undecided.

  1. Give me a break. This man does not know what he is talking about. He should take a look at Wes Prudens commentary in the Washington Times. Obama cannot be trusted to tell the truth.. G-d forbid, Obama in term 2 when no votes to worry about would be very dangerous to Israel.
    and the Jews based on his conduct in term one.

  2. Dale Vandagriff says:

    What are you smoking? Obama would rather have Israel wiped off the map. The only reason he is doing anything in Israel's favor is to garner the Jewish vote. If you voted for him so you would not look racist, then vote him out so you won't look stupid.
