No, not really, but his commentary as "not your typical president" was awesome, and I found myself listening and agreeing 100% with everything he said in this rant (which, frankly, should be no surprise to anyone who knows me and knows how much of a Ramseyite I am (LOL!) ).
Hear Dave Go Off!!!
One area I absolutely agree with Dave Ramsey about, regardless of the surrounding rhetoric... if there is a theme that I am hearing over and over again during this election cycle, it is how many people are looking to the government to fix all of their problems. Now, this may seem *really* strange coming from a Democrat, but, and I'm going to put all of the emphasis on this that I can...
I AM SICK OF THE GOVERNMENT TRYING BE EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE, AND TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE THE ANSWER TO FIX EVERYTHING!!!
I'm sick of the government subsidizing everyone's screw-ups. I'm sick of the government overreaching itself to try to pander for votes, and that goes for both Democrats and Republicans. Please, everybody, be accountable to yourself, your family, your friends and your faith, then start working outwards. The "Nanny State" has gone too far, and I frankly do not want to wake up and find myself living in a Socialist country (though I fear we may already be there). I want to live in the Democratic Republic that I love so very much, where emphasis on freedom, free enterprise, and individual effort and determination actually count for something. Hopefully, all of you who live in the U.S. feel the same way.
