Seven Devastating Mathmatical Facts About 2012 That Presidential Candidates Must Wrap Their Minds And Messages AroundTopics: Political News and commentaries
Over at Big Government, Wynton Hall lists seven important mathematical facts the presidential candidates would do well to wrap their minds and messages around as we enter 2012:
Hall goes on to explain exactly why these are not partisan jabs, manufactured statistics, or ideological swipes ... they're mathematical facts that he believes the presidential candidate who can most clearly and credibly articulate, along with their concomitant solutions, is bound to win because these facts point toward the solutions America must implement to avert the kinds of economic and social upheaval seen in Europe and elsewhere.
- Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has.
- The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.
- Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work.
- College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush.
- Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.
- The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept.
- Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty.
After reading Hall's entire piece, what he has to say makes a lot of sense - it is, after all, based upon mathematical fact. The only catch that jumps out is that his premise is based upon an American electorate that was so dumb and so unwilling to become informed as to elect Barack Obama in the first place being both willing and able to comprehend the simple, basic facts he speaks of. I'm a bit dubious that American voters are wise enough, smart enough, and have sufficient attention span to grasp what the mathematical facts actually mean and how the candidates proposed solutions will succeed where Obamanomics and class warfare have failed.
Seems to me that expecting the presidential candidates to be able to essentially spell out the meanings and solutions in terms that even a typical American voter can understand ... is a big hurdle.
