Apparently, Republican operatives gamble on you not checking facts. This was evi-
denced in the presidential debates of 2011. Republican candidates were caught not
stating facts. In as much ...
If you have heard someone on the radio, the web, or TV mention that Obama and
the democrats are printing money to the point of toxic inflation, know this: The facts
prove the assertion to be a scare tactic. The statistics prove it to be a lie. Republican
operatives are once again crying wolf. Of course, they accuse Obama of "monetizing
the debt;" the act of printing money, in order to pay the debt and thereby lowering the
value of the dollar. However, there is no evidence of alarming inflation. Needless to
say, the game has been to claim that the runaway inflation is around the corner and
coming soon. Scare tactics get annoying very quickly.
Outline of Recent Inflation Rates, One Year of which Yielded Deflation
Inflation for the Year 2011 was merely 3.16%. In fact, the highest rate of inflation dur-
ing Obama's tenure was a mild 3.87% for the month of September 2011. The lowest
was -2.1%, in July of 2009. During the Barrack Obama years, inflation was -.34%
for 2009 ... 1.64% for 2010 ... and the previously mentioned 3.16% for 2011. As
you can see, the Republicans were caught lying once again.
In United States history, inflation was: 17.26% in the Year 1918 ... 15.9% in the
Year 1920 ... 10.97% in the Year 1942 ... 14.65% in the Year 1947 ... 11.3% in
the Year 1974 ... 11.22% in 1979 ... 13.58% in 1980 ... and 10.35% in the Year
1981. In addition, it was 7.74% in 1948 ... 7.88% in 1951 ... 6.16% in 1982 ...
and 7.39% in the Year 1990. Now, compare those figures to the Obama years.
The Republican tactic is to scare you into voting for the Republican candidate. This
is entirely sophomoric and immature. A Republican should weigh his candidacy on
the good that he can accomplish for the vast majority of humanity, as opposed to tell-
ing you how evil the opposing candidate is.
The Republicans continue to cry wolf, telling you that you have to vote Republican or
else the world will come to an end. No. If you vote Republican, then the world really
will come to an end. Look at what happened to Ampad Inc, after Romney's firm took
charge of it. If went into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy after Romney's firm and Romney him-
self made windfall income from the mismanagement of Ampad. It was a systematic
dismantling of a corporation.
Of course, the democrats have congressional members who are self-seeking mani-
pulators, too. It's just that the Republicans are not limited to the quantity of "some."
With them, it's total ruthlessness.
Do not be deceived. If the Republicans had there way, there would be a slave class,
comprising 66% to 80% of the human population. If not a slave class, it would be a
class of unpaid volunteers, mingled with people who work full time yet can not pay
their bills. The Republican truly are a plague of devouring locusts who always make
everyone else look like the plague. Or else they make you like anti-American when
you object to people amassing money unjustly.
Inflation for the past several has not been a problem in the least. So, why did the Re-
publicans bring that subject to the fore, as if we were in an inflation crisis?
ANS: To give an excuse for the unjustified price rises in diesel fuel and gasoline.
It was an unconscionable diversionary tactic. Look at the inflation facts
yourself, so that you can be assured that, once again, Republicans cried
