We do have a candidate running against Mike Pence this year, George Holland. But Pence has hit the nail on the head when it comes to the bailout crisis, and I want to give credit where it is due.
This seems to be happening a lot, recently. Support this project or the community will become a ghost town. Support these programs, or the nation will collapse. If housing prices continue to fall, we may have the first economic depression in which everyone still has a roof over their head.
People tend to make rash decisions when they are afraid. Whenever you hear the word "crisis", that is time to take a step back and see if someone is trying to manipulate you. Often people on both sides of a debate will predict disaster if they don't get their way.(see last year's HS debate) Yet the world seems to keep on turning.
