Contrast that with what was said in the debate between Democrat Richard Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon, candidates for the Senate seat from Connecticut. When asked by Mrs. McMahon “How do you create a job?” Mr. Blumenthal blabbered a 193-word answer. Mrs. McMahon responded “Government, government, government. Government does not create jobs. It’s very simple how you create jobs. An entrepreneur takes a risk. He or she believes that he can create a good or service that can be sold for more than it costs to make it. If an entrepreneur thinks he can do that, he creates a job.” Wow.
This is what the upcoming election is about, and the American people must hand the Democrats a crushing defeat – something more than loss of the House of Representatives. To demonstrate the resolve of the people, the Democrats need to be mercilessly crushed. The American people need to make clear that they will not accept the job-killing agenda that was thrust upon them. We need to tell the Democrats that when we most needed government to get out of the way so that we could create jobs, you were radicalizing America with a leftist agenda that we will not allow to stand.
We cannot fall for desperate pitches by Democrats who swear that they’re going to stand up to Reid or Pelosi. No matter what they say, they will vote for Reid as majority leader or Pelosi as Speaker. So when a good man like Joe Manchin of West Virginia says he is against the Obama agenda, he will still vote for Democratic leadership that burdens us with big-spending liberals like Chuck Schumer, Tom Harkin and Patrick Leahy. When Democrat Bobby Bright of Alabama says that he won't vote for Nancy Pelosi, he’ll still vote for a Democratic Speaker – which means that House committee chairmen like Henry Waxman, Barney Frank and John Conyers will still be drafting their free- enterprise-killing bills that control more and more aspects of every American’s life.
This is truly a national election -- a historic election. The leftist agenda has to be completely repudiated by the American people. The Congress and the President have to be explicitly told that what we earn is our money, and anything we pay to you is by our good graces. They have to be firmly told that we are sick of our governmental employees making more than twice what we earn in the private sector. That we don’t accept their backroom deals that have put our national government and more than half our states on the fast track to bankruptcy. Ultimately, they have to learn that government must live within its means – and that we determine the means.
Unless we do this now, at this moment in history, we will truly be on the road to serfdom and there will be no redemption.
