  1. Sandra Crosnoe Says:

    A question that Joshua Lock submitted for the debate remains unanswered:

    “Question I submitted via text in the debate. Apparently it didn’t meet their seven word quota. Literally, the only questions they posted from the audience were on a third grade level:

    The biggest national security threat this country faces is the legitimacy of the dollar–something that neither party seems to take seriously given their actions. For the “left,” the pets are top down control and planning, social welfare programs, and a “safety net” that all too often becomes a steel cage. For the “right,” the pets worthy of deficits are ensuring that everyone’s pants are al-qaeda free, global occupation to maintain the empire, and enough firepower to extinguish the planet ten times over.

    With a monetary system that is inherently fraudulent and Bernanke’s incessant delusion that debasing the currency stimulates an economy; deciding–even this past week–to initiate QE in perpetuity, congress puts the Fed in a position to do what it has already done the last 99 years: destroy the dollar, just at an even quicker pace.

    This is the big lie. Will either of you do something about the deficit immediately; if you won’t, will either of you at least be honest enough to tell the American people they’re paying for the global empire and the welfare state not through higher taxes, but with higher prices at the pump, the grocery store, and every other commodity on the planet due to currency debasement outlined above?”

    You can email Joshua your thoughts on matters here: Joshua Lock’s email: joshua.lock[at]me[dot]com

    I would like for Joshua to run for a Republican Party County Office in 2013 — encourage him to do so if you agree with me!
