    This was sent to me a few days ago, I thought I would share with you. J.Woolsey

    When you start thinking for yourself, you see things differently.


    One Year or so Ago:


    1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high
    2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon

    3) The Unemployment rate was 4.5 %



    Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we've seen:

    1) Consumer confidence plummet
    2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3 a gallon
    3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase)

    4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses)
    5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars
    6)1% of American homes are in foreclosure

    America voted for change in 2006, and we got it !

    Yes I will be happy with all the change I can get. Yes I'd even be happy with pennies but I would be much happier with silver dollars.

    Yep, had a similar email not long ago. The problem is that the media and the financial people have not pushed these observations.

    Bush/Repub's are blamed and the 18-30 age group aren't smart enough to understand what has happened since we (USA) voted in a Democratic majority.

    IMO, the 18-30 age group, is more into image than they are into facts.

    Historically, the turnout percentage in Presidential elections is less than 60% with the high majority of the non voters in the 35 and under age group.

    IMO, if the younger voters turn out and the majority of them favor a particular candidate, they could greatly affect the presidential election.

    Curt,

    You said it right, the 18 -30 age generation, they are not a smart generation, not at all... when we are our parents ages and grandparents ages... this is the generation that will be in charge... (THAT IS A VERY SCAREY THOUGHT) everything will be resorted to feel goodness and video game mentality.... Dude you killed meeeeeeeeee..

    We are screwed.
