Is there a level of obvious beyond “glaringly?” With the so called ‘fiscal cliff’ averted, it appears that the end result was nothing more than tax increases with no real cuts in spending. The decision makers, the people who voted for it, and the people who sat around with their thumbs up their collective asses for the past 12 years as two administrations absolutely jacked our rate of spending – need to go.
That being said, short of a zombie plague taking them out sooner – we’ll have to wait until 2014 to start removing them from office.
In the mean time, I had a thought – give Obama what he wants. Let him spend us into obscurity, the faster the better. Every single branch of our government has completely failed in regard to protecting the rights of the American people and doing anything to check the obscene rate of growth our government has achieved. The economy can’t keep up. The American people can’t keep up. We’ve borrowed so much money that most likely my great grandchildren will still be suffering as a result.
To quote Keanu Reeves from Speed – “Floor it.” Scrap the debt limit altogether. Give Obama and Congress a blank check to spend as much as they want on what they need. Drive up the debt.
The fiscal cliff was nothing more than a ruse to justify tax increases by a bunch of weak willed and ideologically bankrupt politicians who’d rather pass the buck to the next generation than make the changes required so the next generation can be solvent. Forget the debt, the unfunded liabilities on medicare and social security laugh at our debt as that number sails past $63 TRILLION dollars according to a recent report.
By driving spending up to even greater levels, and sending the national debt even higher – we will take an inefficient machine run by complete and utter morons and blow the engine. How will federal salaries and entitlements be paid if we can no longer borrow money? Businesses will flee in droves. Americans will flee in droves. The fragile economy will collapse, the government will collapse, and then my friends – anything is possible.
I’m not saying I want the economy to fail, or things to get worse, but its clear that the people in power over the past 12 years are completely incapable of making real positive change capable of restoring the American dream to its former glory. It’s been almost 25 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union, it’s time we hand things over to the same ideology that destroyed the former superpower so they can destroy ours and give us a chance to bring back something that resembles what this country used to be.
