"I believe, I believe", said Natalie Wood doubtingly yet hopefully,
when Santa Claus asked her to have faith in him, in the memorable
movie. Sadly, Santa is in imagination only. But others apparently
use imagination/inspiration rather than factual analysis appealing
to the rest of us, just like a child. (Or at the very least, such
speakers regard regular folk as credulous children.)
Mitt Romney "believes" that extending the tax cut for the 1% (oh,
and for the rest of us too) will stimulate the economy. But by now
the thought beggars belief--why hasn't that miraculous Bush II
tax cut done its magic ALREADY?? This tax law has been in place
"Belief" in rigidly-held, factually unexamined political philosophy
is not going to cure current economic malaise here at home.
Actually, the "belief systems" of the Romney rich are suspect
in any case: It's still Let the Devil take the Hindmost, dressed up,
not nakedly avaricious.
I've seen this movie before.
So have you.
