I’m sick and tired of liberals insisting we need a tax increase because the president’s deficit is too high and cannot have a balanced budget without more revenue.
That is stupid! Every dollar the government takes from us is a dollar the private sector does not have to circulate through the economy.
The stupid liberal answer to this is, ‘the government spends and circulates that dollar back through the economy’.
Seriously? These people repeat this lie over and over so it filters down to the voting public that actually falls for that (il) logic. These people equate government spending with private sector investment. There is not one single thing that the government spends money on that is not wasted.
The liberal will say, ‘the private sector wastes money as well on things like over paid CEO’s’. This liberal is prime for being educated. When the private sector wastes money, they go out of business. When the government wastes (or the program fails) money, they expand the program!
You see, federal government bureaucracy just belches and takes another bite from the trough. It is a gluttonous pig that never, ever, ever down sizes. When you and your family have less or take a pay cut, you decrease your expenses.
Not the federal government.
Today, it sees businesses that are too big to fail. It has turned established contract law on its head. Thirty years ago Lee Iacocca borrowed money from the federal government to keep Chrysler in business. He paid it back with interest and met all other obligations (contracts).
When GM could not afford to pay the auto unions all their promises and lifetime guarantees, Barack Hussein Obama took over the company and told everybody that GM owed money to jump off a cliff. Oh, except for all the current and retired union workers pensions and medical insurance. If you owned common or preferred stock or a corporate bond, too bad.
This is how government operates. When it fails, they want more of your money. Take the failed $1 trillion stimulus package that was a payoff to the unions/labor. The president’s defenders say it wasn’t enough. They say it should have been $2 trillion!
I’m serious! And they say it with a straight face. Now he wants an “infrastructure bank”? to pay for infrastructure. Over a year ago, I told you any government stimulus should be targeted and temporary. These same defenders admit that only 10 to 15 percent of the stimulus was for so-called shovel-ready infrastructure projects. Before the stimulus was passed, they all acted like that was all that was in the stimulus.
In response to last week Bev’s Burner comment about republican’s thinking democrats don’t love their country. We conservatives know that most democrat voters love their country. It is the extreme liberal democrats in congress that spend all their time trying to change our country that obviously don’t love it (Maxine Waters, Democrat, California).
