  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan


    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Gary Lloyd


    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Milton Friedman


    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville


    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09


    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

    Barack Hussein Obama


    “And the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history”

    Nancy Pelosi, Election Night 2006

Change, but no hope


That’s right, the economy is a shambles, and the worst it’s been in 70 years. And if we don’t do so something now, it will mean economic disaster and collapse.

The end really ISN’T near, but that’s what BHO, the Democrat Party, and the MSM want us to believe.

And why not? How many people alive today lived through the Great Depression?  And unless you are 40 or older, it’s doubtful you remember (or were even around for) the Carter years. When people are fearful, they tend to have blind faith in a charismatic leader.

Yes, the spin machine is running at full tilt. And the brain-dead electorate and idealogues that believed the spiel on Hope and Change will only be getting change, but certainly not any hope.

Sure, GWB grew goverment in a way that makes conservatives cringe, but his tax cuts created prosperity which lasted until the housing bubble burst. And that wouldn’t have happened had not the Democrats strong-armed financial institutions into giving out bad loans. And GWB was positive, even in the darkest of times (remember 9/11?).

What is it that BHO offering us? He’s promising to put us in much more debt than ever, and offering up endless amounts of pessimism, as any good liberal does.

In light of this proposed unprecedented government spending, where are all those who lauded Clinton for balancing the budget, and who criticized Bush for increasing the deficit? Their silence is deafening.

The latest talking-point-to-be-jammed-down-the-public’s-throat is the fact that Wall Street gave out $18-20 billion in bonuses while taking tax dollars from TARP.  Definitely wrong, but peanuts, compared to the Pork Bill masquerading as an Economic Stimulus package. And if you don’t believe that this is a talking point, I googled “wall street bonus” while writing this, and Google news returned 2, 132 hits on just that phrase.

So for those who expect change, that you will get, and you will be paying for until you die. But if you’re looking for hope, you’ll have to wait until the next CONSERVATIVE takes office as POTUS.

Change but no hope:

  1. Yawn. Your hope for change is also in a leader.

  2. Not at all. I accept that BHO won the election, and is now our POTUS. We’ll see who leads us in 4 years; we may very well have a Jimmy Carter redux here.

    But that doesn’t have to mean that I accept BHO’s POLICIES.

    Just as I criticize Bush for growing government, and doing nothing about illegal immigration, I will do the same for those policies of Obama’s that I feel will harm the country.

    The “stimulus” package is anything but. It’s nothing but mega-PORK, and when put into law, we will be paying it for generations to come. Government is the problem, not the answer.
