The US is broke: Obama and Democrats answer is to keep spending
A Column by the Editor
posted May 25, 2009
COLUMN – Just two years ago the Democrat
Party was clamoring about “huge” spending from the Bush Administration
because the national debt was nearly a half billion dollars. After the
election of Barack Obama, and two years of Democrat control of the
Congress, the national debt has skyrocketed to nearly two trillion
dollars and is heading even higher. So much so that President Obama
said Saturday that the United States was “out of money”. Not that he
cares, nor do the Democrats. Their solution? To keep spending America
Obama is not your run-of-the-mill Democrat; he’s an ultra-Democrat – a
pure Marxist. He, along with the rest of the leftists in power, House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid, Barney (I broke
the banks) Frank, Chris Dodd, and the long list that follows, would
like nothing better than to see America broke and driven into the worst
financial shape in our history. That is, after all, their intentions -
to break us then control us.
They are seizing banks, the auto industry, and financial businesses at
a cost that is estimated to be almost $17 trillion - money taken from
the US Treasury that they refuse to release who got the money. The
money they are using by the way is our money. The only money government
has it money it first takes from working tax-paying citizens. Not to
mention the nearly same size of debt in the national deficit. That is
more than U.S. citizens produce in total income each year.
Obama and the Democrats already have the printing presses working
overtime adding $1 trillion in new money to the economy. This money is
created out of thin air and will, admittedly, cause one of the greatest
tax increases in our history as well as devaluing the US Dollar to its
lowest level ever. It is already happening as the dollar is quickly
being replaced as the currency for the world exchange.
Just like they planned.
And to show just how dead-set on bankrupting our nation Obama and his
worshipers are, they want to take over the healthcare of everyone in
this country. If allowed to do so, the federal government will control
a majority of the economy. Government does such a wonderful job at
running things. Just take a look at public education which has
increased in spending every year while producing lower test scores,
dumber students (but great slaves to the government), and a growing
number of those who depend on government to be the do-all end-all.
“End-all” being the operative words here.
Today being Memorial Day is a perfect time to take a look at government
run healthcare. Yes, there is government run healthcare already.
Medicare and Medicaid runs way over budget, is fraught with billions in
known fraud that can’t be stopped, and Social (in)Security which the
government already admits is going broke. Yes, they’ve done such a
wonderful job managing those aspects of our lives; let’s give the
government even more control over providing “comprehensive healthcare”
Talk to a veteran today. Ask them how responsive and wonderful the
Veterans Administration (federal government) run healthcare for our
military retirees and wounded is doing. Most seek private treatment and
pay out of their pocket because the government run “healthcare” is so
full of bureaucratic red tape and “waiting lists” for treatments.
That option, paying out of your pocket for your own doctor or insurance
provider, will no longer be available. Trying to do that would land you
and your doctor in jail if the Democrats and Obama get their way.
Yes, the Obama fools would rather see everyone equal. And since you
cannot make everyone equally rich and happy, they will just make sure
everyone is equally poor, depressed, and fully dependant upon them for
Of course, the ruling class (the politicians) will get the best care
available. After all, they are so much more important than the lowly
slaves who suckle at the teat of government.
Government is not the answer to any problem; it is the creator of
problems and in the words of our Founding Fathers - is “inherently
One final point to ponder, the very same Democrats, led by Obama, are
one vote away on the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) from taking away your
guns. Last year’s ruling showed 4 of the 9 Supreme Court Justices saw
fit to remove your right to “keep and bear arms” (shall not be
infringed)”. They have already shown that the rest of the second
amendment is void (infringement) as they (government) outlaws guns they
do not want you, the free citizens of this nation, to own.
The right to keep and bear arms was not placed in the Bill of Rights to
allow us to protect ourselves from each other; it was put there to
allow us to protect ourselves from the government. The same government
that has already issued warnings that anyone that did not vote for
Obama should be looked at as possible
Any gun the government says you do not need, you
