Forum Post: So what is going on...

The stock market took a tumble Tuesday. Could it be because Obama won the debate the night before, and the polls are favoring his win November 6 by 2 to 1? Looks like Wall Street prefers not to see Obama win again after he put a modicum of regulation upon them. At least Obama is putting the country in the right direction by doing so (although ever so unsatisfingly slightly.)

Then in other news we hear the President's kill list is being expanded multi-dimensionally into the "disposition matrix." I wonder if maybe the President himself has been put on the matrix? That would answer why a man who spoke so eloquently of Peace and for the common man would turn around and pursue contradictory policies. Seems like the President doesn't really run the show after all.

At least one thing is for sure, the problems in this country will not be solved by an election.

the stock market has been shaky the last couple of weeks it due to the fear of change. It election year everyone is scared of what will happen.

If Romney gets elected things could be different he is talking about taking away tax breaks for companies

If Obama gets elected he might do things that he wont affect him since it is his last term

Plus there is a possibility of great war, weather has been weird and its the middle of a quarter

The economy if left alone will eventually right itself. So to say Obama is putting the country in the right direction is not correct.

He didn't do anything for the economy - he did it all for wall street. Tell me how many jobs are a result of the private sector because of Obama - none.

How many jobs are a result of the government - probably thousands but they ran out of money and as a result people got laid off.

Yes the government is our country's largest employer, and also the largest single buyer of private goods in this country. When the government stops employing, and stops buying that will put an instant hurting on our economy.

Curious, why do you think the government ran out of money?
