As a conservative, I admit that the Bush Presidency was a disappointment. Bush ran as a conservative, so did most of the Republicans in 2000. Then they got to Washington - and something happened. They refused to fight the liberals in Congress, or to take on the liberal media, or to take on the UAW or public employee unions. Instead, they governed as liberals, creating entitlement programs, wasting money. They were given the opportunity to try and fix the Social Security mess, and they whimped out. They whimped out on Medicare and working to get big government under control of We The People.
They chickened out on energy reforms allowing the US to develop our vast energy reserves. They took no real steps to stop the abortion holocaust.
There were a number of Republicans Senators who made bold statements against the Stimulus/Slush Fund, and they were right to do so. This slush fund is money borrowed on the backs of our grandchildren, and mostly likely just out-right generational theft.
Then these Senators, after voting against the slush fund, end up participating in this fraud. They take funds from this poison pool. Every one of these phonies should resign, but they won't. Instead they will continue to say one thing and do another, and we wonder why Congress' approval rating is at an all time low.
The liberals in both parties are in a sprint to drive America over a cliff, and what do we get with many Republicans? They would rather we inch toward the cliff and fall off. The end result is still the same.
I did not vote for McCain, quite frankly, I see little difference between Obama and McCain. Either one in power, we are still headed for the cliff. Take a look at Nebraska's Senators. You really think there is a real noticeable difference between them? In the end, they will both pretty much take us down the road to Socialism.
The Republican Party and the Democrat Party play their little game, and they get you and I to pick sides, "my side is better than your side", and nothing gets done, or the situation gets worse.
The true battle is between those who want to to live under the Constitution and those that want to reform the country into a Socialist nanny state. There are some Republicans and some Democrats that still believe in America, and in the Constitution, and these are the people we need to support.
The Big Lie:
Celebrating the anniversary of the Stimulus/Slush Fund is akin to someone celebrating the anniversary of the day they got leprosy or a cancer diagnosis. Then the President keeps up this silly "jobs saved" mantra, which is phony, and we all know it.
Obama bragging about jobs saved is like John Edwards and Bill Clinton bragging about the number of aides they did not sleep with. C'mon!
The Big Lie is that Obama saved the economy with the slush fund, and as Hitler proved, people will believe a lie, if it is a big enough lie and repeated countless times.
We need to be smart my friends. There is much at stake. This level of government waste and incompetence cannot be sustained. Sooner or later, as almost all of us learn sometime in life, the bills come due. And folks, our government in racking up some bills we can never pay.
Every single citizen now owes hundreds of thousands of dollars because of a bloated, dysfunctional and out of control government.
It is time we act soberly, not as adversaries, but as brothers and sisters.
Defend America, not your party. Defend freedom, not hatred. Defend life, not stupidity.
