Many people in perceived fairness say that President Obama is in office a little more than two months, so we should give him a chance. To these people I ask, how long do you give a new nanny who demonstrates poor child rearing skills, with your children? For the ladies, how long do you allow a new beautician who is clearly doing her own thing and not doing what is best for you to continue before you yell stop? We are seeing so called fixes to our economic problems that are not economic problem fixes. We are seeing major changes to our civic culture under the guise of fixing our economic problem. We are seeing a serious threat to our constitution, by a man who openly does not like our constitution the way it was written.
President Obama is a “big government” – government is intended to take care of people – kind of guy. Just listen to his own words. He is asking to spend hundreds of billions on energy, health care, and education – sounds noble, but he has no plan on how to spend this money. No businessman in the world could borrow money without a business plan, yet he wants multiple billions without a plan – he wants you to buy into his wishes sight unseen – something like buying land (swampland) in Florida. This massive spending on noble targets may sound great, but you need to lift the hood to see just what happens when the big government engine is turned on. In the world of gross domestic product, government produces nothing – it is a drain. It does not foster job growth. It does not provide the necessesary economic energy to sustain growth and to keep on delivering. Government simply takes from the producers and the only thing it gives back is a portion of what it has taken – the rest is government overhead. Over time, the producers stop producing because there is no upside for them to produce.
Sure government can create jobs, government jobs, and this does two things that should make you run from government intrusion in your life. First, any government job created takes away from the producers the ability to produce, grow, and create jobs with a multiplier effect. It must continue to take from the producer to support the government created job. Second, the government created job, as it takes away from private sector job growth, keeps you permanently chained to the government to keep your job. Some may say – “what is wrong with a good job from the government?” – the answer is that the government job is not sustainable and that over time, the ecomony and quality of life shrink. As the economy shrinks, the government must take more and more from the remaining producers to sustain those made up government jobs – remember, government jobs produce nothing and add nothing to the economy. As more and more is taken, the producers produce less due to loss of economic motivation – this becomes a cycle of doom. Countless countries have tried this and met the same result – failure.
Throughout history in Latin America, South America, Europe, and Asia (most of the globe), power hungry despots and some well meaning socialists have adopted the control afforded by socialism and the “government can do it all” approach, and failed miserably. Our current President is an academic with a law degree. He has never produced, never managed anything, and appears to have never studied history on the failure rate of big government socialism. That is, unless he is not concerned with 100% failure rate or the success of the venture (we cannot call it an experiment since the experiment failed in a plethora of tests around the globe), and he is only seeking the control and power that comes to a few, not the masses, from the big government socialist venture.
The following is Barack Obama, when he was a state senator, in his own words describing why our constitution is flawed and in need of change. If this does not send chills up your spine, then you have not been paying attention. He feels that the constitution does not provide government with sufficient powers. In this video Mr. Obama telegraphs just where he wants to take this country with the big government socialist approach. The video was found on a blog Bob’s Bites. (Thank you Bob’s Bites).
This bullet train approach to CHANGE toward a big government socialist nation with an understanding that the constitution does not permit the kind of change being attempted, must be stopped. Unfortunately, President Obama will be in office for four years and the current very left, very socialist Democratic Party controlled Congress will be intact for two years, making the stopping of this train very difficult, but not impossible.
We need to pressure the members of the U.S. Senate’s Democratic Party who hold the more moderate and conservative economic voting records in the Democratic Party Senate caucus and three Republican RINO’s (republicans in name only) to act as a buffer and to take steps to retard the hi-speed approach to socialist economic change. We must pressure these Senators to slow the massive government spending for big government. This government spending is not sustainable and simply cannot be repaid. You see, right now, the government is a sub-prime borrower seeking an unsustainable mortgage – have you heard this before? This is what got us into this mess and now we are attempting to spend our way to prosperity and borrow our way out of debt – show me one budget text book that portends a happy outcome when you spend more than you can produce for a sustained time. One book does explain this unique economic plan – it is the bible – the new testament to be exact. It is commonly known as the “Miracle of the Loaves and the Fishes”. Unfortunately for us, while Barack Obama may think he can walk on water – he cannot and he cannot perform the “Miracle of the Loaves and the Fishes” or make wine from water!
Do what you can to stop this bullet train, before it is too late! Tell them (cut and paste the statement if you wish):
“Stop the over the top spending and borrowing now – don’t destroy our country! Socialism does not work!”
