SOUND OFF: Pres. Obama and the Democratic Convention

What did you think of Obama's speech and the convention? Will you vote for him in November?

Pres. Barack Obama capped off the Democratic National Convention with a speech that highlighted his foreign policy wins, health care reform and immigration reform on Thursday.

Over three nights, Democratic leaders took aim at Republican nominee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan. Several Massachusetts Democrats spoke at the convention, including Gov. Deval Patrick, Congressional candidate Elizabeth Warren and Sen. John Kerry. 

After last week's Republican National Conventon,  to tell us what they thought of the convention and Romney. 

Now, we want to hear from you about the Democratic convention. What did you think of the president's speech? What did you think of the convention? Were you swayed in either direction after watching the proceedings from Charlotte? Who are you supporting in November?

Let us know in the comment section below.

S. Vietnam, Chile, Argentina, and most of Central American countries were examples of corrupt, hated by their own populace, foreign entities US supported, along with Saudi Arabia, btw. See rev Wright, Obama's pastor, referencing those "chickens coming home to roost" to the tremendous amount of hate and disdain by the citizens of all those countries where US supported crooks, liars and mass murderers in power. History is an un-forgiving thing, I am afraid.

DC. Low interest rates today are not reflecting borrowing risk or inflation risk, they are instead a function of Fed discount rates, lack of borrowing demand, and excess balance sheet cash. Treasury rates are low in part because there is a lack of alternative investment options in the worldwide economic turmoil and in part because the Fed is a willing buyer of treasuries (after "printing" new money to buy them). The reason we have not yet seen the full blown inflationary aspects of QE1, QE2, and subsequent Fed actions is because there is lack of volicity in the money supply. Companies and people are sitting on their cash until there is a change toward greater certainty about tax policy, Federal spending policy, and the nature of future Federal regualtory interventions into the "free market" (GM is a great example of investment risk created for investors who now face the precedent of the Federal Government violating Federal bankruptcy law and wiping out all the bondholder investors.) Once the cash sitting on the sidelines starts following again, you will feel the inflation more so than you do now.

There is a great educational (free) web site out there called the Khan Academy. Khan has a knack for being able to explain complicated things in a very simple way. I just watched 4 short videos he created on the Greek Debt Crisis. He explains what everyone is talking about (above) in a very clear and non-political way. Highly recommended. http://www.khanacademy.org/finance-economics/greek-debt-crisis

I am troubled at the thought, most voters rely on media sources for accurate information, regarding a political candidate. If you lack knowledge of your party's: political,social, economic, and religious convictions ,you are not only deceived but irresponsible. Deceived were the voters that choose Franklin Delano Roosevelt for President in 1932. Much like the current administration, Roosevelt was a proponent of Social Justice or distribution of wealth. It's currently referred to as World Distribution of Household Wealth,in an effort to eliminate global in-equality. As for Pres.Roosevelt,he penned Executive Order #6102 on April 5,1933. This E.O.called for the confiscation of personally owned Gold Coins,Gold Bullion and Gold Certificates,which was to be delivered to a Federal Reserve Bank. Failure to do so would result in a $10,000 fine.This was the end of the Gold Standard and the beginning of the Federal Reserve System. Citizens were issued fiat currency in place of the Gold. In 2009,Pres.Obama pledged 65 billion dollars to the U,N.for its 2015 Millennium Development Goals.The pledge was made at the London G-20 Summit.
