Why Not Give Them Their Salary?
I have very little time today, and I MAY not be here tomorrow. There is just some things I have to take care of. But I thought this was interesting. You know that the reality of the situation is this. We do not have poor folks running for President. All the candidates are pretty well off. The Liberals more so than not, TALK about themselves being for the poor. Republicans talk less but do more. I have a solution to help Obama and Clinton win even more votes.
You see folks, the Liberals love to talk about helping the poor. Talk never put food on tables, paid electric bills, or helped cloth people. Talk never helped a family get good jobs that they can take care of themselves. But the Liberals LOVE to talk.
They also love to say we should model our country and certain policies, laws, and benefits after other countries. They say we are behind the times. Universal Healthcare being one example. So may I suggest that Obama and Clinton both pledge to do the same as the South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak? They should take his lead. They should get us out of the dark ages. They should give their Presidential Salaries to the poor. According to CNN- South Korea president to donate salary to poor
(CNN) -- South Korea's new president has pledged to donate his salary to the underprivileged.
Lee Myung-Bak made the pledge during an unscheduled meeting with reporters Sunday in the press room of his presidential office, the state news agency reported.
The president said he would donate his salary during his entire five-year term.
Lee is a former CEO of an engineering and construction company with a vast personal fortune. As mayor of Seoul from 2002 to 2004, Lee donated his salary to the children of street cleaners and firefighters.
"I promised to spend my whole salary earned as a public official on public welfare," Lee told reporters. "My plan to donate the presidential salary to the underprivileged is an extension of that promise."
The news agency did not say how much the president earns in a year.
During the election campaign, Lee, 66, vowed to donate his entire personal fortune of more than 30 billion won ($30.2 million) to the poor. He said at the time he would keep only a retirement house in Seoul.
Now here is a guy who puts his money where his mouth is. HE IS making a difference. So, uh, Obama? Clinton? How about any of the Senators? Hello? Anyone?
I thought so.
