This video below from Fred Thompson sheds light on the absurdity of the current 8 trillion dollars in bailouts that the government is giving away. He also notes the total crap that the constant stimulus packages are.
I agree on the idiocy of the stimulus packages. Basically what they are is appeasement to the taxpayer. "Hey here's $300 bucks, now stop complaining when we saddle you with $15,000+ in additional debt that we give directly to our rich buddies." It really is a sham and you should absolutely snarl at the check when you receive it because it is total crap.
As for Fred, he only seems good when he's scripted.
Tipped by: Six Meat Buffet, which I find hard to believe is filmed before a live studio audience, but whatever.
I voted for Fred in the Texas primary, even after he dropped out. I wasn't the only one either. About 15,000 others did it, too.
