the dollar to kill America
A Column by the Editor
posted January 5, 2009
COLUMN – While Democrats eagerly await the
coronation of their messiah, Barack Obama, later this month, the media
and the people just close their eyes to the ensuing collapse of our
once great nation. I have made no bones about my political opposition
to the United States of America having a hard-line Marxist, who refuses
to prove he is even an American citizen, lead our nation to its grave.
As the economy is tanking, Obama and his fellow “hate America first”
Democrats in Congress, seem hell bent in bringing about our end.
It would be amusing, if it were not so frightening, to see the national
media and Democrats spew their hate of President Bush as the most
“unpopular president ever” when the Democrat controlled Congress would
have to quadruple their approval ratings to come close to matching the
President’s. But the liberal Democrats and their propaganda arm, known
as the national media, care little about facts, just sound bites.
The fact is that the course we are on, primarily by design, is to see
our Capitalistic economy ruined and the insertion of socialism - if not
outright Marxism - to overthrow our once great Republic in a coup
d'état lead by the most liberal President-elect in history and
“Bailout” is the key they are using. A Trillion dollars for the banks
the government forced to make loans to people that had no business
getting them, all in the name of “fairness”. Billions of dollars going
to automakers who will not use the money to make cars cheaper. No, all
that money will go to the United Auto Workers Union (UAW), in order to
bailout their unsustainable wages and benefits. Democrat governors are
already getting in line for at least a trillion dollar bailout of their
states. Why is it that places controlled by Democrats are always unable
to sustain themselves?
Though not even in office yet, Barack Obama, along with his fellow
liberal Democrats, want to insert at least another Trillion dollars in
an “economic recovery package”, otherwise known as give-aways to people
who have never paid taxes to begin with.
Before all is said and done, the federal government will be doling out
almost a quarter of our nation’s entire Gross Domestic Product in new
money, which will devalue our already shrinking
The uneducated will see this as a great thing. After all, it’s free
money from the government. The educated among us know that the
government does not make money; it takes it by force from those who
work and are self-sufficient.
Mr. Obama is saying he is going to do all these things and still bring
tax cuts to “95% of working Americans”. Let me go on the record now to
call him a liar. Already the amount of money created to pay for these
“bailouts” equals our entire $2.73 trillion dollar federal budget
(2007). Not to mention that revenues for the federal government at the
same time was only $2.56 trillion, or a $200 billion deficit.
Any thinking person knows you cannot spend your way out of debt, maybe
somebody needs to explain that to Congress and Mr. Obama.
Within twenty years it will take our entire $2.73 trillion budget just
to pay for Social Security, welfare, Medicare, and prescription drugs
leaving none for national defense, infrastructure, or other necessary
government functions. It is interesting to note that the entitlement
expenditures are not supported by the constitution and are not a
constitutional function of the federal government.
Yes, I can see tax cuts coming down the pipe, can’t you?
The truth is the problems we are facing now are because of government
intervention in the free market in the first place. Inserting more of
what caused the problems is not going to fix it; it will only make it
worse. But that is the Democrats plan.
