Trust? Trust? Are you kidding me? (Obama, McCain, CEOs,…)

Posted by TopOfTheThread on October 7, 2008

Republicans, Democrats, George W. Bush, Weapons Of Mass Destruction,  pork barrel earmarks, Congress,  Public Company CEOs, Banks, lobbyists, Stock Brokers, Investment Banks, SEC, The Fed, honesty trust governmentFTC, FDIC, Treasury, …

Who can we trust?
I don’t feel comfortable with any of these people or entities.  As time goes by we are finding it is harder and harder to trust.

We have shown that people cannot be left to do the right thing.  Look at what Wall Street, and the CEOs have done to the United States and World markets.  How honest was our government regarding our entrances into Iraq and Afghanistan?

We need moderation and regulation
We have shown the need for SEC to get stricter. We need the FDIC and Fed taking more control. We obviously cannot trust the greed and excesses of Banking and Wall Street.

  1. We cannot trust the executive branch to do the right thing without the legislative branch monitoring them.
  2. We cannot count on the legislative branch doing the right thing without the executive branch monitoring them.

Who do we trust?
I do not trust Obama or McCain. I do not trust Congress (Look at page 263 of the bailout bill.) Congress maneuvers and adds irrelevant items and earmarks.  They had to add it to the bailout bill!  One of the most critical bills in recent history.

  • If McCain wins the election, there will be a Republican president and Democratic Congress.
  • If Obama wins the election, there will be a Democratic president and Democratic Congress.

If McCain wins the election, Congress will keep him in line.  If Obama wins the election, I hope the democrats don’t run rampant making changes without thinking them through. Do you trust them?
