When those who would control spending are the extremists, what does it say for our future? Of all things the Tea Party movement stands for, the central issue is spending control. The mainstream media ensures that the Tea Party is continually painted as extremist yet this simple central point is what they want above all else. In other words, not spending more than you have is ‘extreme’?!!
The liberals and incumbent Republicans in the US are out of control. More worried about re-election and who to blaim than what is right. It ain’t a close call folks, we don’t have the money and the spending must stop. Yes they can increase taxes but even the dumbest of the thoughtfully dumb have to realize that when you take ever greater percentages of money out of the economy, eventually you reach a point where you take in less total revenue? The thing businesses understand is that WE THE PEOPLE are way way past the point of positive revenue/tax correlation. Paygo is a trap for this reason. As is a fake balanced budget amendment. Policy must reflect the balance between business and redistribution and in the last 5 years, our liberals have nearly destroyed America. Our company is still seeing customers close their doors at record rates, bills unpaid, companies demanding pennies worth of cost reduction so they can hope to survive. Eleven percent of US houses are empty of inhabitants today. Hope and change folks.
It is stupid beyond belief that the recent budget for the US was signed. Yes it was important as we need to pay our bills, but it was stupid to agree to huge commitments without any true reduction in spending. Deeper and deeper we go, the liberals pushing at our backs, the incumbent Republicans helping it along. We simply don’t have the money for this oversized, bloated, monster of an evil government we have supported. They must be disemployed at the earliest possible convenience.
If the US economy makes it to the next election, that election again will likely be close. It is insane to me that it should be close, but so many idiots are detached from the critical care/life support ward our economy is in that they can’t fathom the obvious solutions. The very thing which made America great, has been distroyed in 3 short years by hope, change and fake wealth redistribution. Sure Bush started the program with his liberal House and Senate, but since Obama took control, the three liberal branches together drove the knife deep home smiling all the way.
When those who only want spending within our means are the extremists, something is horribly wrong and those who don’t see it, deserve what they get. Unfortunately, the leftist politicians in power will take the wiser group down right with them. Unless something dramatic happens in the next election cycle beyond my own imaginiation, the shrill screaming for ever more support of their evil socialist creation during our economic decent will likely echo through the White house walls for decades to come. Intent?
Not spending more than you have is not extreme, it is correct. More tax is not always more revenue. Business is not the problem, the government is. Less regulation, less tax, more free choice, less lawsuits, less enforcement and you get a cleaner world with better health. Sure there is a line where the unbridled free growth will have negative results, but by the naturally expanding nature of government, we aren’t likely to find it in the next hundred years, and most certainly won’t be very close to that line of negative consequence any time soon.
