I have received a lot of criticism and the old “rolled eyes” from friends and relatives when I tell them that it doesn’t matter which candidate wins the upcoming Presidential Election. I maintain that the problems are beyond fixing. Backwoods Jack and his wife Judy are giddy over the prospects of Paul Ryan and his vast knowledge of things financial. They are convinced he can fix the economy. When I disagree, they can’t understand why.
On Wednesday, I came across an article in Newsmax written by economist and humorist Ben Stein and his views gave some credibility to mine, not that I need any.
