Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it. Today in America 52% of the people have decided they like and want a Bigger, More Powerful and More Controlling Federal Government. This past election, regardless of the Voter Fraud, was a true indication of how people can be led to believe that somehow a Bigger Government will be good for them. This false belief has been fueled by the Government's intentional restriction of the Private Sector Economy thereby forcing more people to become dependent on Government Programs. We best wake up and smell the coffee. The Fundamental Transformation of America it taking us down a dark road to a catastrophic end.

A Minority View: Higher Minimum Wage

It is also not Rocket Science to understand that the only real way to elevate wages and incomes is to grow the economy thereby creating more demand for employees. The only realistic way to Grow the Economy is by reducing the burden on business to operate. Under the Barack Obama Presidency we have added more burden and he wants to add even more by continually raising taxes. It is pure insanity to have a mandatory increase in wages while increasing taxes. You don't need 50 years of Economic Research to figure this out but Barack doesn't care. He wants what he wants and that's a Bigger More Controlling Central Government.

How did we ever get by before Barack showed up? How did we become the greatest industrialized nation in history with the strongest middle class and best average lifestyle in the world before Barack? How were we able to do all that back when the Government only spent 18% of our GDP instead of the nearly 25% now? How did we survive before we had 47 million people on Food Stamps and 15 million collecting unemployment benefits for 4 years? Oh, I remember. Back then we built things, made things and produced our own energy so people had jobs and could buy their own stuff. But, that was before Government blocked economic progress.
Are we really this stupid? How in the hell did half of the country fall for this line of bullllshittt? All this stuff Obama says he's going to do for us we used to do for ourselves. The only difference was that back then our Government paved the way for economic growth instead of blocking it. During out most prosperous years Government Spending was between 18% and 19% of our GDP. It's now nearly 25% and we're adding more people to the unemployment rolls and Food Stamp lines weekly. When are we going to realize that the only way to Grow Government is to shrink the Private Sector Economy?
Obama says that a thousand kids may not get a "Free Breakfast" if the sequester goes through. Oh really? So out of a population of 300 million people it's going to cost $85 Billion to feed a thousand kids is it? Those must be some pretty nice and expensive breakfasts. How about if the Government stops blocking Domestic Energy Production and we put 10 million people back to work at good paying jobs? How many breakfasts can we buy then? How about if we drop this idea of raising taxes and keep more jobs and industries here in America? How many "First Responders" can we pay for then? This is insane. When are we going to wake up and see what is happening?

Do you really think Obama could get away with this scam without the aid of the Media? Government spending is at an all time high and we are getting less to show for it. Instead of providing an economic climate for growth we are intentionally blocking progress in order to grow the Government. During our most prosperous years Government spending was at between 18% and 19% of GDP. Now it's approaching 25% and Obama wants more. The more people Obama gets addicted to Government Stuff the worse it gets. Wake up folks we are headed for a disaster.
We have become a bunch of frightened sheep. All a politician has to do is threaten to take away some Government Program and we shudder in fear that we are no longer capable of taking care of ourselves. What enemy do we have anywhere in the world that we cannot take out within 60 days if we actually employ our full capabilities? None. The only reason we've been in Afghanistan for 12 years is because after our initial invasion we decided to be politically correct instead of taking care of the problem. If we had told the Afghan people to either surrender or we're going to carpet bomb your asssss it would have been over in 60 days one way or the other.

So we're going to save the Planet are we? And just exactly how are we going to do that? Do we think that by buying more foreign oil we are "Saving the Planet?" All we are doing is shuffling the money around and blaming someone else for what we claim is a problem. In the process we have denied ourselves more than 10 million good paying jobs and our solution is to raise taxes on those who still have a job so we can keep providing "free stuff" to those who should be paying for their own. We do all this in the name of "Clean Air and Water" when it's already proven we have the cleanest air and water of any industrialized nation on earth.

If you look at what we now spend tax payer money on versus what we did back when the Federal Spending level was at 18% to 19% of GDP it is mind boggling. Instead of getting Government out of the way of industry and economic growth so people could provide for themselves we now try to have the Government do all of that. Do you really think we need to have 47 million people on Food Stamps? What ever happened to having a job and buying your own groceries? Do we really need to have 20 million people on unemployment when we could be producing our own energy and providing jobs? Why do we for the Government to provide Healthcare? Why don't we educate 30% more Medical Professionals and let supply bring down the cost so we can afford it?

Stop counting Suicide by firearm as a problem. More than 90% of the people who commit suicide by whatever means are either under the influence of drugs or alcohol. So be it. The Gun is not the problem so stop saying it is. Provide "Loaner Guns" to those who don't own one themselves and let them get it over with before we spend a bunch of time and money trying to save them from themselves. There are hundreds of thousands of churches that will councel these people for free if they are willing to let them. If not, kiss 'em goodbye and let 'em remove themselves from the gene pool.
