Frank McEnulty: Personal Responsibility

I’ve chosen to expand on my beliefs concerning personal responsibility because that is the topic on my website that has generated the most comment.

Throughout all the discussions about the subprime meltdown Congress has been trying to figure out how to bail out all of those people in trouble because they took on a risky or too large home mortgage in the last few years. This is a perfect example of politicians using our money to bail out people for their own (often greedy) mistakes. Chris Dodd, the Senate Banking Chairman, said, “I’m determined to do everything we can to allow people to stay in their homes”.

I’m sorry, but where is the personal responsibility in buying too large or too expensive a house, getting involved in a “bad” mortgage in order to qualify Continue reading

Frank McEnulty’s Administration

Partisan Politics and My Administration:

There will be no partisan politics allowed in my administration because I have seen first hand how destructive they can be to getting the job done and helping people get back to their lives.

For the last two years I have been involved in developing a project in the New Orleans area. The project is now underway, but during that time I have had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans several times and have seen first hand Continue reading

Frank McEnulty: T’is the Season–Tax Season

It’s getting to be everyone’s least favorite time of the year again: tax season.An article written by Jeb Hensarling, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of over 100 conservatives in the House of Representatives and is titled “Contract Renewed” almost parallels my views on the subject of taxes.

The article states:

The time has come for each member of Congress to show political courage. We must stop politicking and work to Continue reading

Frank McEnulty: Squandering Our Future

Government spending is totally out of control and we can’t rely on the two major political parties to do anything about it.

There have been many reasons given as to why the Roman Empire fell. One of the most compelling is that they basically squandered their resources and spent themselves into a hole from which they could never recover. When bad times came they did not have the reserves necessary to see them through. That made the bad times a lot worse and a lot longer than they would have been if Continue reading

Frank McEnulty: The Federal Government and Natural Disasters

The tornado in Kansas a while back was a terrible thing. I haven’t seen total devastation on that scale in America since I was living in Florida and Hurricane Andrew went through the southern part of the state. No one, no community can fully prepare for a disaster of that magnitude and it requires the help of local, state and Federal officials to help get things back to normal.

However, it has long been my belief that politicians secretly welcome natural disasters for the opportunity it gives them to pander to the electorate. While they may certainly care about the people affected by these tragic events, politicians also use them to be seen as caring and to throw our money around like, … well, like it isn’t theirs.

For years I’ve thought that there should be a more rational and organized response to natural and other disasters than the current system of knee-jerk politicians swooping in and Continue reading

Frank McEnulty: Personal Responsibility

I’ve chosen to expand on my beliefs concerning personal responsibility because that is the topic on my website that has generated the most comment.

In the Thursday, March 15, 2007 Wall Street Journal there is an article titled: “Congress Primed to Act on Risky Home Loans”. The basic tone of the article is that Congress is trying to figure out how to bail out all of those people in trouble because they took on a risky or too large home mortgage in the last few years. This is a perfect example of politicians using our money to bail out people for their own (often greedy) mistakes. Chris Dodd, the Senate Banking Chairman said, “ I’m determined to do everything we can to allow people to stay in their homes”.

I’m sorry, but where is the personal responsibility Continue reading

More on Frank McEnulty’s Campaign

Since sending out the first email concerning my Campaign for President of the United States I have been asked a lot of questions and would like to answer those questions at this time. As always, please forward this on to everyone you know.

 

1. Are you serious?

Very serious. A lot of time and effort has gone into getting this campaign started and I intend to see it through to the end – whatever that might be.

 

2. Can you really do this?

YES – One of the reasons why this is such a great country is that anyone who meets some very basic qualifications can file to run for President. My candidacy is registered with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), my campaign committee – Frank McEnulty for President National Committee – is registered with the FEC and our committee is also registered with the IRS as a 527 political organization.

 

3. Why are you doing this?

Over the last several years I have become increasingly disturbed by Continue reading
