Who is the Liberal Now?

Are you upside down on your home mortgage? Don't worry John McCain and the government will take care of you. Here is what McCain said last night in the debate:

You know that home values of retirees continues to decline and people are no longer able to afford their mortgage payments. As president of the United States, Alan, I would order the secretary of the treasury to immediately buy up the bad home loan mortgages in America and renegotiate at the new value of those homes -- at the diminished value of those homes and let people be able to make those -- be able to make those payments and stay in their homes.

Is it expensive? Yes. But we all know, my friends, until we stabilize home values in America, we're never going to start turning around and creating jobs and fixing our economy. And we've got to give some trust and confidence back to America.

This is non-sense and completely crazy. Maybe I should fall behind on my mortgage so the government will take care of me. Never mind the fact that the Fed will have the print the money out of thin air to pay for this. Hold on the your hats, we are going to be in for a wild economic ride as long as the government keeps interfering. Between this proposal and Bomb Bomb, Bomb Iran, there is no way I can vote for McCain. (or Obama.) I honestly, do not know which will do more harm to our county. I encourage you to vote 3rd party. I'll have more on this in a later post.

Let me know on the 3rd party. I have been less than impressed with McCain, and I still think Palin was an irresponsible choice. If Ohio looks like it's going Dem, I'll vote 3rd party.

I'm thinking Bob Barr, Libertarian.

Yup, that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me, too. Looks like Obama has company in the "tell the people whatever they want to hear, don't worry, uncle government is here to fix all your problems so we can all live happily ever after kum-ba-ya" club.
