The whole system is pathetic. Mitt and Barrack are just pawns in it.
Of course Mitt is coming to Utah again. This is where one of his biggest cash
cows is located.
I wish I could meet him in person. But honestly I cannot afford that. What about
getting real with the middle class? With $25 K I can pay my car or maybe part
of my credit card debt or open a savings account I really like Mitt Romney, but
those prices make him not affordable for me to meet Mitt in person. Sad.
You (Deseret News) must be thrilled beyond measure.
How much will it cost us poor plebes to see him? $25,000, $50,000,
$100,000?He won't be visiting with the majority of us, only
those who can afford his price.
I can't help but wonder how much better our state would be if we dedicated
the money given to someone who is already a millionaire, to the public education
system. Perhaps we wouldn't have the worst per-pupil spending
in the whole nation?
@PackNo... I am saying that what few ideas that Mitt and Paul are
willing to divulge have been tried and have failed before. Trickle down
economics does not work. The world moves forward whether you want it to or not.
If we want to stay ahead as a nation, we need to move forward also. For
example, we need better, more effective public education (not cutbacks in public
education). A Swedish girl my son knows is going to college here (at a very
good school) free, paid for by the Swedish government. How do we compete with
that (i.e., if Swedish kids are better educated than U.S. kids)? Should we
borrow from our parents? "You're on your own" doesn't work in
education. The notion that people don't want to work for a
living is simply false. I challenge you to name 5 able people you personally
know who do not want to work and be successful. I have never met a single person
in my life who did not want to pull his own weight. Of course, some are old or
handicapped, so they must be helped by the rest of us.
@1aggie. "wagon wheels in the 21st century" ? I am guessing
you are saying that the ideas of Romney and Paul are old fashioned and filled
with values which many feel are outdated, well that is just the thing that our
country needs. Yes Romney is coming to raise money and so I guess working for a
living is old fashioned compared to expecting someone to just give it to you
like our government is doing now for so many of the American people.
I wouldn't waste your money people. The largest sales budget in the world
won't help sell wagon wheels in the 21st century.
