yeah i haven't posted in this thread in like a week or maybe more even, but from my last post to now, i think im even less confident in the McCain Campaign then I ever have been.
John McCain was a part of a congressional committee, specifically dealing with economic overseeing. He is throwing the chairmen of this committee (also a republican) to step down and even be fired. Excuse me Senator, but if you had any complaints of him in the past, why didn't you say something earlier? why throw him into the bus now? the answer: he was just as clueless as you John McCain.
In addition, as someone else mentioned, he is calling for the SEC Chair to be fired, which was appointed by Bush a few years earlier. Someone that he praised not too long ago, and poof, he switched his stance NOT before this crisis started, but when the election called for it. The fact is, John McCain's stance on regulation in the past (or lack thereof, as he was for pure deregulation of markets), was too leaneant on big companies, primarily investors, banks, etc.... hmm, arent these the same guys bringing this country to the shitter right now??? Obviously so.
NOW, McCain is pulling a 180, completely shifting his "economic strategy" to strict regulation, something he was against, just last weak. But John McCain does not get our economy. One word or concept wont change or improve the economy. I am all for deregulation in the NYSE and global markets and trading with both domestic and foreign businesses, as it has been proven to be successful. And Yes, this is a conservative approach. But there is a difference between Deregulation and Fraud, and this is what Bush and his cronies have been doing. Not just deregulation our markets, but creating Fraud. Companies were over investing, when they knew they could get away with it, NOT because of deregulation, but Because the GOP and Dem's both had ties with each and every company. They were getting paid to look the other way.
the point is, regulating these companies on a stricter level wont do much as long as fraud and corruption exists in Washington. The McCain campaign is spiraling with new quotes that contradict statements the day before. Obviously his advisors are more confused then he is. Obama, who i personally has criticized way more then McCain until the last couple months, is clearly a more fit candidate then McCain. Though Obama is no where near perfect, and i probably will still vote for a third party, he(Obama) is definately perferred then McCain.
here is my boy Ron Paul question a dumbfounded mcCain... which McCain rambled some random crap
