I have been looking forward to the presidential elections, the race between Romney and Obama. That is until Obama started injecting the student loan program into the race.

The $1 trillion that is currently owed by all the outstanding student loan debt scares the “Hell out of me.” The idea that president Obama could decide to ask Congress to pay off that debt if he were to be reelected is probably the best reason I know not to put him back into office.

President Obama is visiting several campuses speaking to the student body. Do you think those kids are hoping to hear one thing? “I plan to ask congress to help pay off your student loan debt.”

First, we had Tarp. I admit that was not all his fault. The government used billions of dollars of our tax dollars and put the banks back on their feet. The government spent billions of dollars putting the auto industry back on their feet. Actually, it was more Obama put the unions back on their feet because he owed them for his election.

Then Obama spent $1 trillion trying his best to get the economy headed in the right direction. That failed. Yes, yes, I know, there are those that feel it accomplished what the money was supposed to do.

Then rich man Warren Buffet started talking about how the rich should pay their fair share. Now he’s spending $1 million to get Congress to hand over $83 million for his friends, so they do not get taxed on their jet rides.

If Pres. Obama is re-elected into office, it will not be long afterwards that he will be standing in front of Congress asking them to pass a law paying off the trillions of dollars owed in student loans. He will explain that it is the only way to help these young people get back on their feet.

Ask yourself this question. How many young people do you think, right now, are thinking the same thing? Students who cannot find a job and there are many, considering the idea of continuing their education. The students continuing to build their student loans, with the idea that, at some point in the future, the federal government will pay off the loans. I think a large majority.

That is actually how I think many of the young people nowadays think. That is how they were raised. Their parents raised them with the idea that there’s a man in a white suit, on a white horse, who will come riding, out of the sunset, to save their day. They never stop to think about what reality is all about. That is why we are in the mess we are in.

I recently heard an interview of a college graduate with $100,000 in student loan debt. She said if she had known this would turn out the way it had, she wouldn’t have gone to college. She thought she would go to school, graduate, get a great job, and pay off her debt in less than 10 years. Now it could be 15 to 20 years or more.

Can someone say Greece.
