Battle for Worldviews: The Stakes for the 2012 Election are High

Jesse Jackson Jr. shares his thoughts on how to fix the economic crisis, solve the jobs problem, end state government deficits, and save the republic:

Jackson called for full government employment of the 15 million unemployed and said that Obama should “declare a national emergency” and take “extra-constitutional” action “administratively” — without the approval of Congress — to tackle unemployment.

“I hope the president continues to exercise extraordinary constitutional means, based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past,” Jackson said. “He’s looking administratively for ways to advance the causes of the American people, because this Congress is completely dysfunctional.”

What could go wrong?

    Hello Jackson, this comes about as close to calling for martial law as I can imagine but why would I expect anything different from you………….you have not fallen far from your tree of ancestry, you maggot!

    Like all liberals, Jesse Jackson is very good at spending other people's money. He has done very well and never had a job! Whatever he says should be discounted and discussed on late-night TV comedy shows.

    This is a sad comment on what happened to our present generation as we have wandered increasingly away from the founding principles of our once great nation. Yes we've had our ups & downs, but overall our nation & free market system made us the #1 superpower in the world. Why would anyone want to abandon a success story (yes, we now have "crony capitalism which should be stopped, but we should go back to true capitalism, not failed socialism)? The Power Elite (fabulously wealthy Central Bankers) are manipulating the masses into wrecking the USA & bringing on first chaos, then a One World Order, with them still at the top… this time with even more power & wealth. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

    This guy is the root problem of this country. As far as I can tell, the saying of ex prime minister of England, Maggie Thatcher still rings true. "Socialism is great, until you run out of other peoples money". These maggots do not understand that our government is so over regulating business, there is no room to fart. If uncle sugar would get out of they way, more people would be working and paying taxes instead of being leaches on society.

    Let him lead the way and pay the first $40,000 out of his own bank account to the first freeloader to show us he's serious!

    Ron Paul lis the only proven leader that is very elcectable and can defeat Barrack Obama in the general election. He is also the most honorable, honest, wisest and non waivering candidate in this race.
    Do you want to save your country. Vote and Elect Ron Paul for President.

    • Steven says:

      As a rule, the Republican that is LEAST like the Democrat is the most electable. That said, Ron Paul is the ONLY potential Republican candidate that I can see actually losing to President Obama in 2012. I would name him Treasury Secretary in a heartbeat, but I don't trust him on foreign policy.

      • Mag says:

        It's obvious that the majority of military that make contributions to campaigns favors Ron Paul's foreign policy since they donated more to his campaign that any of the other candidates combined including Obama.

  7. DWC says:

    I will back just about any GOP candidate because any of
    them will be much better than what we have. I’m liking Herman Cain so this racist crap you liberals keep throwing in our faces just won’t work. Oh I guess you liberals will start saying Cain isn’t black just like jesse jackson said.

  8. Joyceann says:

    GET ON THE CAIN TRAIN. The values of the constitution will be upheld. It is getting unsettled out there folks and he can bring us together. I like to see the flag flying in the white house, all the programs taken apart and fixed or demolished.
    Capitalism isn't the enemy, waste government is our problem. Let's make Washington do their checkbooks like we do at home. The left is using the race card. It doesn't work because it's an excuse to do nothing.





    WE NEED TO THROW THESE LEACHES OUT OF OFFICE BEFORE THEY SUCK ANY MORE OF OUR BLOOD. I am strongly leaning ino supporing Newt for president, for I believe is capable of doing the job, not to mention, he would tear BO up in any debate. Newt has less baggage then, Kennedy's, Clinton's, Romney or Perry, not to mention our present president. Oh yes, Newt knows where all the political bones are buried such as, Pelosi, Reed, Dodd and a few others. Please give Newt a closer look.

    Pizza Man Herman Cain Will Not Deliver!

    Federal Reserve insider unfit to lead economic recovery, charges Revolution PAC.

    From his faulty recession predictions in 2008, to his support of TARP to his resistance to a Federal Reserve audit, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is unqualified to shepherd America to honest economic recovery, asserts Revolution PAC.

    As conservatives, including Rep. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich, rally for fiscal transparency, Cain – a former Kansas City Federal Reserve chairman – continues to dismiss the push for a thorough audit of the public-private agency. While Cain asserts in his new autobiography, “I don’t think you’re going to find anything to audit on the Federal Reserve,” Paul’s Domestic Monetary Policy subcommittee has overseen a GAO investigation of the Fed’s crisis response emergency lending that uncovered$16 trillion in emergency loans to foreign banks.

    Cain’s pattern of misjudgment and obfuscation is not a recent phenomenon. Just one week before the economic collapse and subsequent banker bailouts in 2008, he went on the record to defend the strength of the financial markets and suggest an “imaginary recession.”

    “He was completely clueless about the condition of the economy right up to the moment of collapse,” notes Revolution PAC Chairman Tom Woods.

    Cain proceeded to wholeheartedly back, in big government liberal fashion, the controversial Troubled Asset Relief Program, which he deemed a “win-win for the taxpayer.” He flippantly argued, “The ownership by the taxpayers is going to be relatively small and nowhere near the amount needed to be called nationalization. So what’s the problem?”

    “We need sweeping, systemic changes, carried out by a real supporter of the free market who sees the whole picture,” Woods urges, “not trivial tinkering by Herman Cain or his friend Mitt Romney, whom he endorsed in 2008.”

    Woods continues, “Dr. Paul specifically warned in 2001 that Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve, whose NASDAQ bubble had just burst, were in the process of creating a housing bubble. That Ron Paul is the candidate best equipped to lead us back to economic prosperity is nearly undisputed.”

    A recent Harris Poll revealed that Ron Paul would prevail over Barack Obama 51 percent to 49 percent in a general election race. Paul stands at 13 percent in New Hampshire, site of the first-in-the-nation primary.

    Revolution PAC is bolstering Ron Paul’s consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising campaigns complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Proceeds will support the airing of game-changing commercials, like the game-changing Plastic Men” in the months to come. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations can be made to Revolution PAC.

    Huffington Post Provides Proof That Herman Cain Lied At The GOP Debate

    Cain Also Thinks the Fed Missing $9 Trillion Is Unimportant
    Herman Cain made it clear tonight in his answer to Ron Paul’s question about auditing the Federal Reserve that he simply doesn’t think it’s important.

    In 2009, the Federal Reserve admitted it could not account for $9 trillion. This is not a misprint. It wasn’t $9 million. Not $9 billion.

    $9 trillion.

    Does it have to get to $999 trillion, Mr. Cain, before you think the Federal Reserve issue is important?

    Cain’s Favorite Fed Chairman: “Print More Money”

    In the Bloomberg GOP Debate, Herman Cain said that Alan Greenspan was his favorite Federal Reserve Chairman. That the TARP-supporting, financial crisis-denying Cain would think Greenspan had a good head for economics should be no surprise, since he shows himself to speak like a true insider does.

    Comparing the Candidates on TARP

    Let’s face it: The Cookie Monster is as good, if not better, than most journalists in highlighting this crucially important distinction between Ron Paul and Barack Obama, Herman Cain and Mitt Romney concerning TARP:

    ObamaCare Advisers Were Also RomneyCare Advisers

    Writes James Antle at The American Spectator:

    “Records show that Mitt Romney aides met a dozen times with the White House to discuss health care reform, according to reports that are sure to refocus attention on the similarities between Obamacare and Romneycare. The Massachusetts health care plan Romney signed into law was an inspiration for the federal legislation, signed by Barack Obama, that the Republican frontrunner has pledged to have repealed.

    It’s worth noting that at least two of the aides, Jon Gruber and John McDonough, are liberal Democrats, the latter a former aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. The Romney campaign has downplayed Gruber’s role in crafting the Massachusetts law. These facts could either be mitigating, since it isn’t shocking a Kennedy aide would visit the Obama White House, or one could argue it revealed the liberal imprimatur on the Massachusetts health care law even during the design phase.”

    Cain/Paul on the Housing Bubble

    Of course, there is no comparison. One was absolutely right and the other was absolutely wrong. No one is perfect and this is especially true of politicians, but to be so horribly wrong–even arrogantly wrong–about one of the worst financial crises in American history does not bode well for anyone seeking this nation’s highest office.

    Would anyone hire Cain as an economic adviser? If not, then why would anyone hire him for president?

    Video: Cain/Paul Comparison on the Housing Bubble

    Once again, there is no comparison. Paul saw the crisis coming because he understood the economic factors that were creating it, particularly Federal Reserve interest rate policy. Cain did not see it coming because he still does not understand basic economic truths, hence his notion that Fed policy isn’t important or deserving of scrutiny. (Stunning comparison, must view!)

    Jackson says congress is in rebellion. I say Jackson is the worst sort of LIAR. It is this administration that is in rebellion. All these officials swore to uphold the constitution but what they are doing is the opposite.
