What Honest Historians? Doris Stearns Goodwin? Slessenger, who has been described as "KENNEDY'S "KEPT BIOGRAPHER" or some REAL Conservative like David Brooks who knew Obama would be president; could tell by looking at the crease in his pants? Recent history has been written by 92% avowed Liberals and 8% Independents!
Only when the very last person in the MSM has sacrificed themselves in their defense!
Don't know who he will be joining, but whoever, OUR LOSS IS THEIR LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!
You have seen even the most modest attempts to reduce the growth rate of all the programs (no one has ever attempted to cut the size of programs but to simply keep them from enlarging their budgets every year) come to naught. WE ARE GREECE!!!! No one even mentions turning things around. Anyone we elect will have to keep driving this Titanic till it sinks, AND, LIKE THE TITANIC, THERE WON'T BE EVEN HALF ENOUGH LIFE BOATS FOR YOU ALL! NOPE, NO ONE WILL PUT THE BELL ON THE CAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But, even they are paying only half the current expenses; the other half is being borrowed. (So why should people get all lathered up about spending programs when they are not asked to foot any of the cost?) Why, let those Overpriviliged upper half of the wage earners pay all the money that is being paid today while the rest is being borrowed. And yes, that money that the US if printing? Well that too is being borrowed and adds to the national Debt! Our Government has no intention to ever repay that money so interest will have to be paid for everyoues entire life on money so casually borrowed!
Second, half the population don't mind how many generous, duplicate and wasteful programs and activities are being added BECAUSE THEY AREN'T PAYING FOR THEM! Write this down: If it is "free", like all the social programs, Obama Phones, food stamps, housing allowances MEDICAID, Pre School, WIC, ethanol, solar, wind and Childcare, it is paid for by money cycled through the IRS, which is, if you still remember was called INCOME TAX! Immigrants, the majority of which are uneducated Hispanics are A HUGE NET COST to our economy! But you don't hear so much opposition from the 47% because they are not paying much, if any of that cost. Easier to be generous with other peoples money! So the upper wage earners are paying all that is being paid for the running of the country providing all the services for the entire country!
So, who will put the Bell on the Cat? There are two points I wish to make here. First, the Americans have been brainwashed into the "Stimulus Keynesian method of thinking. How many times, yes, how many years have you been hearing that every dollar the Government puts into the economy, by unemployment, social programs and infrastructure spending actually MULTIPLIES? Pelosi cited figures like a single dollar gives back a dollar seventy five cents! And, those who actually read the outstanding chronicle of "The Forgotten Man" (In depth analysis of the Great Depression) by Amity Shlaes, will recall that some in the Roosevelt New Dealers who were pushing Keynesian economics (and Keynes himself writing directly to FDR) even suggested that federal money injections would do as much as quadruple! Once the Nation has swallowed that religion, waste, fraud and abuse are now just fine in that they too take money from the Government and transfer it to the general economy!
THE GREENIEAICS IN GOVERNMENT JUST HAD TO CHANGE TO "ORGANIC KITTY LITTER" AND SCREW UP SOMETHING THAT IS WORKING!!! DIDN'T THE GOVERNMENT EVER HEAR THE ADMONITION, "IF THE DAMN THING IS WORKING, DON'T FIX IT?!!!!

For one thing, there are more than 75 thousand people in Government who's jobs exist, not from just monitoring and enforcing existing regulations, but creating new ones! But, before you get your hopes up, lets try to remember what are the chances Republicans will recend any laws , rules or regulations, once they get power. After the Democrats have taken the blame for passing anything unpopular, Republicans choose to leave it in place and just hope to also benefit from it. They are, after all, all big Government hacks! They all want to drive the Titanic for a little while, but none want to change the Status Quo!

Remember those 1990s when the country was prospering, suburbs were being built, 75% of people owned stock, Airlines were being launched and the unemployment rate was 5 percent? Did you ever stop and think in 1996 that the country was Begging for 20 thousand new and additional regulations, which it has now gotten since those years? How many did we need to stop the country from going to hell in a handbasket? Were we actually living under the threat of sudden death? Were we the most rogue nation in history because we did not already have in place, 20 thousand regulations that have been written since that time? Well, if things were OK, just why did they write 20 thousand regulations to right wrongs that did not exist and protect us from catastrophes that were not eminent or even possible in most cases?
All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing "In order for evil to flourish, all that is required is for good men to do nothing." From Edward Burke. Other memorable quotes. "The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who, in time of great moral crises maintain their neutrality." --Aleghieri Dante (1265 - 1321) So, what is the newest standard; that set by the Conservatives? In view of all the atrocities chronicled in the article, you must be wondering, as I am, what are the Conservatives doing to resist this? Do they not have a sworn oath to resist with all their means, the very dismembering of our justice system we now are undergoing, but which does not seem to humiliate them, even as they are watching it happen in real time on the ceaseless television coverage? Sticks and stones--- you all heard it and laughed it off when you were children. But Conservatives cower in front of the spoken or printed criticism! Just to be mentioned in a partisan sentence sends them diving for cover. Sadly, we Conservatives have fielded the WW2 French Army to preserve our liberty!
