Time to Stop the Debt Charade

She has it right and it is a charade; been so for several years. Apparently it is almost impossible for a fiscally conservative (right thinking) Congress to maintain for more than one administration. Speaker Gingrich presided over one such group, but then lost it a few years later. Problem is we are trying to deal with a President who does not want a fiscally sound USA. A weak economy allows for a strong central government and a strong central gov. needs money; lots of it and will seek to get it from wherever/whomever has it. And this president wants a strong central gov. Thus our dilemma.

The crisis du jour in Washington now dominating the news, the so-called “fiscal cliff”, is but the latest in seemingly endless political crises that we shouldn’t be having.

We get two different kinds of problems in life. The real ones – the struggle to work and improve the quality of our lives – and the ones we bring on ourselves through poor behavior.

The more time we must deal with the latter type, the less time and energy we have to deal with life’s real problems and challenges.

The political crises which emanate from Washington are invariably problems...
