Statement Shouldn't Be Publicized

If the press were to publicize the statement that QE is all that prevents a crash, and the public believe it (and it's true so you can't blame them), then will the public support a candidate who opposes QE? I don't think we want to publicize that.

What we need to put out there is this statement: "Recovery is impossible while we're wasting so much money on war and wasteful spending, no matter how much QE we give special interests."

Or, "Any local business owner makes better economic decisions than Congress or Ben Bernanke who spend, spend, spend, or try to make us do so."

I do think we need to keep hammering the trade-off between war and peace and their effects on the economy. Those are big numbers.

What do you think?
