The American idea that all men are created equal, granted unalienable God given rights is in the ICU with a decision to be made soon whether it will be transferred to a room or Hospice.
We are now in our fifth year witnessing Barack Obama bald faced lying to the people assisted by a corrupt liberal media. Obama is propagating division through class warfare, driving the economy toward the abyss with historical debt, failing to advance a recovery, smothering the private sector with leviathan laws/regulations/taxation, attacking our traditions, heritage, and customs.
For years Obama has demonized conservatism and Republicans making false claims they are blocking recovery. Obama makes outrageous claims conservatives would throw granny over the cliff by eliminating Social Security, destroying Medicare, and want sick children to fend for themselves.
So when John Boehner speaker of the house, and our last firewall of protection for the American idea was asked if he trusted Barack Obama, he responded; absolutely. At a time America needs strong principled leadership to block the progressive’s fundamental transformation of America Boehner fails. Boehner either agrees with Obama or he is a coward.
When Boehner was asked if he agreed with Obama’s claim there is no debt crisis, he said yes, there is no immediate debt crisis but there is one looming. This when more debt accumulated in the past ten years than the first two hundred twenty five years since our founding.
This proves Republicans do not have the leadership, integrity, or the conservative principles necessary to save America from its greatest threat since its founding. Big government statism is embraced by both parties leaving the individual without representation. That or Boehner lied.
Obama is taking a break from his campaign of lies on sequestration, golf outings, vacations, lavish parties, and is in Israel for a photo op. The president speaks in Israel with the conviction of a criminal at sentencing, by claiming to support Israel as he arms The Muslim Brotherhood.
Never fear, Harry Reid replaces Obama in the sequester campaign of lies going to the senate floor to blame the tragic deaths of seven Marines in a training accident on sequestration. This proves the radical Democratic leaders will forsake any principles, morals, truth to advance their destruction of America as founded.
If only the Republicans had the same determination and persistence to save America as Democrats have for destroying America as founded we might be able to have hope.
After four years of failing to pass a budget senate Democrats are introducing their progressive dream budget with $45 trillion in spending over the next ten years. Surprise, their budget includes their Holy Grail, massive tax increases. Over a trillion dollars in new taxes.
Paul Ryan introduces a watered down conservative budget in the house that spends $41 trillion over ten years but does not increase taxes beyond the $630 billion passed in the fiscal cliff disaster in January. Immediately the progressives and their accomplices in the liberal media call it a disaster for the poor, the elderly, and the children. Right on que the lying resumes.
Obama and his henchmen at the BLS claim that unemployment is falling, housing is rebounding, and although the recovery slow, is happening. The unemployment rate? 7.7%. If the methodology for calculating unemployment utilized in 1980 were applied the unemployment rate would be over 20%. The 23 million unemployed or underemployed is that of the Great Depression.
The recovery is occurring only in the propaganda from the Obama administration and in the reports of a corrupt liberal media. There is no jobs recovery and the people who live on main street know it.
It gets better. The Federal Reserve headed by Ben Bernanke said at the FMOC meetings he saw no reason to slow easing until the unemployment rate reached 6.5% or inflation rose above 2%. Shadow Government Stats say if inflation was calculated as in 1985, the inflation rate would be 9.8%.
Folks living on main street who pay for gas, food, and health insurance know the real rate of inflation.
The question for Bernanke becomes, which unemployment rate will be used to stop printing $85 billion a month out of thin air? Which inflation rate will be used? The real rates or the rates invented by government to deceive the public?
America is at an inflection point. There is no principled leadership from either party. Collectively they depress the private sector by confiscating their wealth, deny the individual their liberty, causing the soul of America to dim.
America needs a miracle cure. Heroic statesmen who believe in America as founded to step forward, take action, and people who will support them.
