Buckeye Back Road Tour cont.: I did an interview on WHBC radio out of Canton, Ohio, today. (Barrack Obama was in Canton yesterday.) In regard to the financial crisis, I said I wouldn’t have bailed out Wall Street. “Stocks are merely a legalized form of gambling to make easy money. And I don’t believe in gambling,” I said. What’s more, I said the country might do well to actually slide (or crash) into a full-fledge Depression. Peoples’ priorities might finally shift, for the better… As an example, polls show that for a majority of Americans the economy is the number one issue. Meanwhile, I pointed out that some 4,000 babies will be killed in their mothers’ wombs in America today, some 24,000 people worldwide will starve to death today, scores of people will be killed in the Darfur Genocide today… And we’re more worried about our 401ks, ability to buy the bigger television set, etc… Just as we don’t need a bail out on Wall Street, we do need an attitude adjustment on ‘Main Street.’ A big one. Note: The radio host asked what our website was. When I said voteforjoe.com, he responded: “Is this like Joe the plumber?” I laughed and said no, this is like “Joe the house painter.” I also said, as ‘Joe the plumber’ is having an impact on the election, having campaigned in all 88 counties in Ohio at least twice over the years, ‘Joe the house painter,” might have an impact on the election as well. See if we impact the vote in Ohio (even slightly), and it’s as close as it was last time in Ohio, well, it might change the complexion of the whole race nationwide. Wouldn’t it? Note 2: This week we are doing a series of “whistle-stops” along the Old Lincoln Highway (Rte. 30) through Ohio. Come join us.
