Okay Just Hand Over Your Wallet And They'll Be Happy
There is a reason the Democratic Party is called “the tax and spend” party and we’re seeing it in action. What do you get when you have Big Government? What do you get when Big Government wants to be everything to everybody? We’re seeing it up close and personal - an astronomical DEBT. It’s a house of cards though that eventually will come tumbling down taking everybody and everything with it. Hell of a way to build an empire huh, not to mention trying to run one built on Voodoo economics.
You see these big time central planners have a plan. They don’t see all this debt as a sign of failure but as a sign of progress. Progress as in progressivism. Their argument actually runs in a bit of a circle. They want to spend more so they demand that we pay more taxes so they can waste more money on pipe dreams.
Aren’t these the same sad sack DC seat warmers who just in this fiscal year managing to spend $1.7 trillion than is being collected in the coffers? Or am I seeing things again? So it becomes the citizens of this nation’s problem since we aren't paying enough. See the circle?
Crybaby? As Our President?
So Baby Obama storms out of the room in a pout uttering profanities under his breath. When was the last time Moochelle changed the boy’s diaper? The Do Nothing Party doesn’t want to do anything, much less discuss, about exercising fiscal restraint without digging deeper into the tax payer’s pocket. Another segment of the circle falls in place as they keep crowing about how urgent it is to increase out taxes because look over there at that huge national debt. Has someone told these dolts that they are the problem, not the solution.
So lets keep spinning. If they don’t let the debt be increased then doom and gloom will surely happen. Spending will have to be slashed by 44%. What a marvelous idea. Thousands of less than useful federal employees will have to hit the bricks causing the unemployment figure to skyrocket. There is a cause and effect here really.
Looking at it like a Big Government guru, the size of the federal government bureaucracy, which has grown by a mere 17% under the current administration is the very reason the size of the monster can’t be slain. So we have a government living beyond its means who has recklessly spent our tax dollars who contends that it is reckless and irresponsible to allow it to continue down the path of economic destruction. There has to be some rationale there but I fail to see it.
We're Supposed To Be The Suckers...
So here we are at the conclusion of the circle. It’s quite mad really. The national debt is being used as a manipulative tool in arguing that spending doesn’t need to be cut, that excessive regulation and job killing tax policies don’t need the ax and that fiscal restraint is just so passé.
Instead they want to yield the ax to the job creator’s wallets and keep on spending like a Hellbound Train and call it “investing.” Their solution is to create a United States of Debt. Damned the torpedoes, full speed ahead! The problem is that the citizens of this nation are what floats the boat.
