Spending Is the Game

The ruling class is pulling out all the stops in the mis-framed debate over the direction our country will take to try and put up barriers to anything resembling a halt to what they like to do best; spend the taxpayers money as fast as they can!

The problem is that after going on a literal blitzkrieg of irresponsible spending based upon the cover of cannibalistic stimulus policy known as Keynesian economics, including endless bailouts,  quantitative easing (money printing), crony payouts, and the like, since 2007, we suddenly find ourselves very, very far in debt.

In the 2010 elections the people clearly said, “ENOUGH!”,  by voting out incumbents in historic proportions.  The message was unmistakable that people wanted a halt to fiscal irresponsibility… and out of control government.

So now those most recently voted in are holding fast and we the people are holding everyone’s feet to the fire by expecting them to stand on the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility.

The establishment, who were shocked by the election results, seemed to understand briefly that business as usual had changed. However, they quickly got over it, believing that they could use their powers to bring any “upstarts” inline with their reality and the way “things are done inside the beltway!” This particular plan has not seemed to work very well though and now we witness much screaming and howling and crying, “FOUL!”

It seems that those associated with the Tea Party movement are now considered middle-earth hobbits incapable of being reasonable nor of understanding the complexities of the game by members in their own party establishment.

We understand just fine.

Obama and the other leftists in charge have no desire to stop spending at a fast and furious rate, but they do have an election to worry about, so they will do whatever it takes to blame the right for their spending addiction.  We learn from them that the current GOP leadership is weak on principles, and will often sacrifice these strategic strongholds (conservative principles) in order to gain minute or insignificant pieces of political ground in order to claim progress.  This easy exploitation seems apparent to everyone but those who are being played.

Economically the left has no answers at all that do not include more taxes and more spending.   They just need the permission to continue their program relatively unabated.  It is their foes in Congress who are continuously “compromising”  to give them this further permission. To be fair, there is actually one area the left would cut willing, our national defense. Other than this, they are about growing, not limiting government size.  For that, they always need more of the people’s money to spend.

The astronomical national debt numbers are not imaginary figures ginned up by cave dwelling know-nothings.  This debt was created in record time by those in Washington… playing their game. These are addicts and enablers trying to point fingers at the interventionists wanting responsibility in their representation! We get back  loud protests about disastrous election results if the game is not allowed to continue on their own terms!

There are only so many points of time where the opportunity exists to turn back in the right direction for this country.  This is one of those times. Let’s put the onus back on those who deserve the real criticism.

The best deal for America is to take the steps needed to bring spending under control, and to do it now, not later.  It may be too tough a job for some, but in that event, we can, and will, find those who are willing to perform the job of ending the spending game.

Nothing but true…

Have straw-men, will travel

That is how I imagine the title on a Barack Obama cover-sheet for his resume.

Hope was coming, change was needed, and neither the status quo nor the special interests would escape. Can we do all that…Yes we can!

So went the rhetoric of the new dynamic young leader vying for the presidency of the United States.

Of course the speech lasted much longer and the substance was pretty much left up to the audience to fill in… as they imagined it.

That was then, and that is now, still.

The dream weaver is president now, and has been 16 months. The rhetoric is still the same.

We see that there has indeed been change, and bigger government involvement in our lives has comprised almost all of it.

The hope part has worn thin too, for all but the most die hard ideologues as the same old empty promise rhetoric of so many politicians before him.

The bad guys are still referred to as the special interests, corporate special interests, CEO’s and special interests, and those wanting the status quo and the special interests.

There is of course the banking special interest, the financial sector special interests, the insurance industry special interests, and the right wing special interests too. Let’s not forget those fringe tea partiers who of course are really just front groups for the special interests!

These straw-men are the traveling bad guys that the avenging hero must dispense of in every imagined, or even actual crisis, to save the day, to save you. He tells us we should thank him.

Read almost any request for campaign donations for a Democrat candidate and you will find Mr. Special Interest listed as the bad guy they are fighting, and why they need your loot to defeat him.

Having any special interests must be a very bad thing. This charge might be especially hard to make stick to others if your own list of special interests was very long itself. One might even not want to disclose this inconvenient fact less ones own credibility be attacked. Of course having the media covering the dreams verses the realities helps.

But even with the White House doing everything in their power not to be transparent in their dealings with special interests, it isn’t hard to see where the taxpayers money has been going nor who is behind getting it to them.

The visitors log at the White House is a chronology of special interests visiting for the purpose of special favors. These people are not turned away as unwelcome guests, they are invited to come get in line. They all have an interest in getting what they want. The president acts to give them what they want and they in turn act to give him what he wants.

Next time you hear the president or one of his cronies crowing about special interests, don’t worry about undefined straw-men, think about that White House visitors log and how nice it might look in some sunshine!

One more thing, when that next request for money or support for a Democrats position comes in your in-box look for that “special interest bad guy dude”, he is sure to be mentioned in one way or another!

The Obama Census Plan

1obacornlog003

If there is one thing that even a cursory review of Obamas past reveals it is this:
He has no reservations about using his political power through others to advance his political agenda.

The ‘ends’ always justify the’ means’ in his thinking, and those ‘means’ he employs have little resemblance to fair play or American values we value or respect.

He has a plan to use the Census, ACORN and the unions to permanently secure power in order to entrench his socialist/communist ideology upon America.

Read Michelle Malkin’s article on his plans here

There is a reason that the Democrats want 12-20 million illegal immigrants here, and they intend to ‘cash in’ on their efforts to keep them here, soon.

The 2010 Census and the elections will finish the integrity of the entire voting process, if we allow them to get away with it.

Today’s story by Malkin about the DOJ undermining the state and voters of Georgia, along with several judicial decisions requiring legitimate verification of voter eligibility, really hammers home the extent in which Obama and his minions have committed to getting these illegal votes.

Obama and Holder are taking actions to usurp legal citizens rights, and allow us to all become disenfranchised, by permitting illegal votes to be counted!

Are we going to allow Holder and Obama to destroy our legal rights to change our elected representatives?

Nothing is more basic to our entire system of government, than the integrity of the voting process!
