Doing the same things, expecting new outcome


OTTUMWA — The United States is in deep financial trouble. Do you hire someone who has had many years of successful experience in helping businesses solve their financial problems, or do you continue to employ someone who has ruined your economy but promises he will improve the economy if you give him four more years of continuing the same policies?

Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Folks, use your five senses! Can’t you see all the financial problems around you? Can’t you see the millions of people who can’t find work? Can’t you see the rise in prices?

Do not let a mellifluous or honey-sweet voice blast you with empty rhetoric! Do not pay attention to the meaningless words! Look around and see with your own eyes if you are better off now than you were four years ago! Use your common sense to make the right decision on who you hire for your next president! Do not continue the current insanity!
