Is the Economy Good or Is the Economy Bad?

June 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

Another day of political ads and another wild mix of accusations and name calling from the political candidates for President of the United States, (Willard) Mitt Romney, and Barack (Hussein) Obama. Amazing what you can find in a name. Apparently, Mitt doesn't want to be called "Willy" and surely Obama doesn't want to be associated with his middle name Hussein... Not that his detractors would believe he wasn't Muslim even if he didn't have this unfortunate name squeezed in between. As for real issues of the campaign, like the economy, that neither candidate really has much affect on despite their claims, what is really going on?

I am currently on a kick where I want to enter into the small business market by purchasing an existing franchise and becoming my own boss, growing the business and see what I can make of it. Listening to political ads, one might become instantly frightened that as soon as they walk out the door the Obama administration is going to sweep in and take their job away or the Romney campaign will buy your business up with Bain Capital funds and slice and dice it into a mere shadow of itself before selling it off in pieces... That is so Gordon Gecko of you Willard... What happened to the Main St. versus Wall Street ads? Those were always fun and was successful in pitting the "lower class" against the "super rich" Isn't this really what the two sides of this contest are really pitching without really saying it out loud?

Let's face it, corporations will always rule the roost and the worker bees will always work for them in one way or another. Even in my dreams of being a franchise small business owner, I still would essentially work for my franchisor that ultimately seals my fate even with my own greatest efforts. So which candidate is better for someone like me? That is hard to say. Healthcare could prove costly for a small business owner under "Obama Care" but it also provides a path to being insured in a market where health insurance can be hard to obtain let alone expensive depending on your situation. On the other side, the candidate (Willard) who now opposes ObamaCare was the chief architect of the plan when it was called "RomneyCare" in the state of Massachusetts... It is hard not to fret when you are uncertain about the current system but the alternative is the same. I suppose as "The Who" famously sang New Boss, Same as the Old Boss. Isn't that the truth?
