New Campaign Strategy?

Posted: January 14th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Political | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

I just left a comment on Why Organic? ‘s blog. The post calls out Romney for some stuff he said said in Michigan. The post mentioned various things that Presidential candidates could be doing with all that money they raise other than paying for advertising.

I’ve often thought about what would happen if one of the candidates took on this new campaign strategy: spend the money changing lives instead of just talking about change. With the millions of dollars they invest into their cross-country trips and ridiculous commercials, they could go to these states and put the money into children’s clinics instead of just talking about children without health care. In place of tax cut rhetoric, put some real money into a few families pockets that are in need. Give money to local food banks and shelters to help those who need it most. Build a youth center to get kids off of the streets or a library instead of telling them you won’t leave them behind.


If any of the candidates tried anything remotely close to this, the candidate would get all of the FREE press and media coverage anyone could ask for. That candidate might be worthy of the office of President of the United States.

World Carbon Tax?

Posted: December 17th, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: My Thoughts, Political | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Since the UN Climate Conference in Indonesia, I am surprised to see that there hasn’t been an uproar for the US taxpayer. The tax would bring in $10-$40 billion a year; a majority of which would be paid by th U.S.

Say we pay half of this, for an estimated $20 billion. Now, the government makes no money except through our taxes, so what would our responsibility be? Granted most of this would likely come from corporate taxes, and not income tax, but we all know when corporations pay more tax, prices go up and we pay in the end anyway. With an estimated 300 million Americans now, it works out to about $67 per person. I am married and the father of four, which means my “liability” for this global carbon tax would be about $400 a year.

How can our government even be considering such a thing?

Al Gore stood at this conference saying that the U.S. is primarily responsible for human caused global warming. Others at the conference called for a global redistribution of wealth to help smaller countries deal with the affect of global warming! Can you say one world government/economy?

Personally, I will be writing my representatives to express my displeasure. We can’t allow a bunch of socialists to dictate what our country can and will do.
