If Fred Thompson had been elected president, he would have been right at home. American’s economic policies today are like one big reverse mortgage. Mortgage the country’s future so the government can spend and spend with no thought as to the consequences for future generations who will face the burden of paying for all the debt incurred. On AAG’s Reverse Mortgage website you will see Fred Thompson’s face, and the term “A Real Government Insured Financial Solution.” How can incurring more debt be called a real government insured financial solution?
Oh by the way, Fred Thompson ran as a conservative – greed does seem to trump principals in some cases.
