Extreme self interest

Timothy Kincaid

June 12th, 2012

I spoke today to someone who both supported and contributed to Rick Santorum’s campaign. He explained it simply; it was a matter of self interest. He’s a bankruptcy attorney. He was looking forward to Santorum’s policies driving the economy into utter chaos.

True story.

Like I said, we should have voted for him en masse in the primaries

An utter chaotic economy would hurt even that lawyer. He might not be able to buy gasoline for his Porsche.

Cowboy, you think people who make 100-200k+ a year are really concerned about rising prices in gas? Even if it got to $10/gallon it’d hardly make a dent in his lifestyle.

Yer right, Lucrece. If the economy saw gasoline go that high it could mean farmers couldn’t run their tractors and then food would be scarce…not even those fancy-smancy bankruptcy lawyers would have food.

Glenn Beck and I get this apocalypse fear mongering from the same people. There are some people in my rural hometown who would love to see a major economic crisis happen.

And as a side note: I have lawyers as friends and I don’t want to generally disparage the lot of them. (Or I would never have had a chance to ride in a Porsche.)

Santorum-scale economic chaos = China replaces USA as the world’s dominant economic & military power. Simple as.

Yes, I’ve noticed money does change people.
