Good Game America

Good game America, it was fun while it lasted. We enjoyed a marvelous period in history where freedom reigned supreme. For a brief time we prospered through the mechanisms of free market economies. We enjoyed a degree of independence from the federal government. But sadly, the brain dead, and brain washed Obama-zombies have decided to "change" all this. To adopt the extraordinarily successful systems of France, Germany, and the UK (thick sarcasm here.)

There once was a time when Americans would have been outraged at the release of its captured enemies, but today they vote for it. For a man who promised to put the rights of Americans first I find it strange how that equates to terrorist "rights." Obama has ordered that our most prominent detention center of our most dangerous enemies be closed within a year. Why, you might ask, I will tell you. He is closing it in "the name of national security and justice." That's right, you heard me right, NATIONAL SECURITY AND JUSTICE. We are going to release people that want to kill every American man, woman, and child, in the name of "national security." We are going to release these scum bags in the interest of their "rights." Since when is it "justice" to release prisoners that threaten our country? Since when do people who regret not being involved with 9/11 have rights? Since their ally and friend got into office, that's when. It makes perfect sense I suppose. Why not release the ones who have given you most of your campaign funds and support you unconditionally? You have to protect your friends in politics, that's part of the deal.

This is certainly the end of the greatest nation in the world and half of us welcome it. I hope that once this socialist utopia is achieved that people start to realize what they gave up. Unfortunately those who voted for it will never challenge it, and even if they did it will be far too late. Dick Morris, one of the most intelligent and insightful political pundints, contributors, and authors has wrote this excellent editorial. While this is a great editorial it leaves you wanting to slit your wrist, and honestly that might be the better way out considering the events to come.

The Obama presidency: Here comes Socialism

2009-2010 will rank with 1913-14, 1933-36, 1964-65 and 1981-82 as years that will permanently change our government, politics and lives. Just as the stars were aligned for Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson and Reagan, they are aligned for Obama. Simply put, we enter his administration as free-enterprise, market-dominated, laissez-faire America. We will shortly become like Germany, France, the United Kingdom, or Sweden — a socialist democracy in which the government dominates the economy, determines private-sector priorities and offers a vastly expanded range of services to many more people at much higher taxes.

Obama will accomplish his agenda of “reform” under the rubric of “recovery.” Using the electoral mandate bestowed on a Democratic Congress by restless voters and the economic power given his administration by terrified Americans, he will change our country fundamentally in the name of lifting the depression. His stimulus packages won’t do much to shorten the downturn — although they will make it less painful — but they will do a great deal to change our nation.

In implementing his agenda, Barack Obama will emulate the example of Franklin D. Roosevelt. (Not the liberal mythology of the New Deal, but the actuality of what it accomplished.) When FDR took office, he was enormously successful in averting a total collapse of the banking system and the economy. But his New Deal measures only succeeded in lowering the unemployment rate from 23 percent in 1933, when he took office, to 13 percent in the summer of 1937. It never went lower. And his policies of over-regulation generated such business uncertainty that they triggered a second-term recession. Unemployment in 1938 rose to 17 percent and, in 1940, on the verge of the war-driven recovery, stood at 15 percent. (These data and the real story of Hoover’s and Roosevelt’s missteps, uncolored by ideology, are available in The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes, copyright 2007.)

But in the name of a largely unsuccessful effort to end the Depression, Roosevelt passed crucial and permanent reforms that have dominated our lives ever since, including Social Security, the creation of the Securities and Exchange Commission, unionization under the Wagner Act, the federal minimum wage and a host of other fundamental changes.

Obama’s record will be similar, although less wise and more destructive. He will begin by passing every program for which liberals have lusted for decades, from alternative-energy sources to school renovations, infrastructure repairs and technology enhancements. These are all good programs, but they normally would be stretched out for years. But freed of any constraint on the deficit — indeed, empowered by a mandate to raise it as high as possible — Obama will do them all rather quickly.

But it is not his spending that will transform our political system, it is his tax and welfare policies. In the name of short-term stimulus, he will give every American family (who makes less than $200,000) a welfare check of $1,000 euphemistically called a refundable tax credit. And he will so sharply cut taxes on the middle class and the poor that the number of Americans who pay no federal income tax will rise from the current one-third of all households to more than half. In the process, he will create a permanent electoral majority that does not pay taxes, but counts on ever-expanding welfare checks from the government. The dependency on the dole, formerly limited in pre-Clinton days to 14 million women and children on Aid to Families with Dependent Children, will now grow to a clear majority of the American population.

Will he raise taxes? Why should he? With a congressional mandate to run the deficit up as high as need be, there is no reason to raise taxes now and risk aggravating the depression. Instead, Obama will follow the opposite of the Reagan strategy. Reagan cut taxes and increased the deficit so that liberals could not increase spending. Obama will raise spending and increase the deficit so that conservatives cannot cut taxes. And, when the economy is restored, he will raise taxes with impunity, since the only people who will have to pay them would be rich Republicans.

In the name of stabilizing the banking system, Obama will nationalize it. Using Troubled Asset Relief Program funds to write generous checks to needy financial institutions, his administration will demand preferred stock in exchange. Preferred stock gets dividends before common stockholders do. With the massive debt these companies will owe to the government, they will only be able to afford dividends for preferred stockholders — the government, not private investors. So who will buy common stock? And the government will demand that its bills be paid before any profits that might materialize are reinvested in the financial institution, so how will the value of the stocks ever grow? Devoid of private investors, these institutions will fall ever more under government control.

Obama will begin the process by limiting executive compensation. Then he will urge restructuring and lowering of home mortgages in danger of default (as the feds have already done with Citibank).
Then will come guidance on the loans to make and government instructions on the types of enterprises to favor. God grant that some Blagojevich type is not in charge of the program, using his power to line his pockets. The United States will find itself with an economic system comparable to that of Japan, where the all-powerful bureaucracy at MITI (Ministry of International Trade and Industry) manages the economy, often making mistakes like giving mainframe computers priority over the development of laptops.

But it is the health care system that will experience the most dramatic and traumatic of changes. The current debate between erecting a Medicare-like governmental single payer or channeling coverage through private insurance misses the essential point. Without a lot more doctors, nurses, clinics, equipment and hospital beds, health resources will be strained to the breaking point. The people and equipment that now serve 250 million Americans and largely neglect all but the emergency needs of the other 50 million will now have to serve everyone. And, as government imposes ever more Draconian price controls and income limits on doctors, the supply of practitioners and equipment will decline as the demand escalates. Price increases will be out of the question, so the government will impose health care rationing, denying the older and sicker among us the care they need and even barring them from paying for it themselves. (Rationing based on income and price will be seen as immoral.)

And Obama will move to change permanently the partisan balance in America. He will move quickly to legalize all those who have been in America for five years, albeit illegally, and to smooth their paths to citizenship and voting. He will weaken border controls in an attempt to hike the Latino vote as high as he can in order to make red states like Texas into blue states like California. By the time he is finished, Latinos and African-Americans will cast a combined 30 percent of the vote. If they go by top-heavy margins for the Democrats, as they did in 2008, it will assure Democratic domination (until they move up the economic ladder and become good Republicans).

And he will enact the check-off card system for determining labor union representation, repealing the secret ballot in union elections. The result will be to raise the proportion of the labor force in unions up to the high teens from the current level of about 12 percent.

Finally, he will use the expansive powers of the Federal Communications Commission to impose “local” control and ownership of radio stations and to impose the “fairness doctrine” on talk radio. The effect will be to drive talk radio to the Internet, fundamentally change its economics, and retard its growth for years hence.

But none of these changes will cure the depression. It will end when the private sector works through the high debt levels that triggered the collapse in the first place. And, then, the large stimulus package deficits will likely lead to rapid inflation, probably necessitating a second recession to cure it.

So Obama’s name will be mud by 2012 and probably by 2010 as well. And the Republican Party will make big gains and regain much of its lost power.

But it will be too late to reverse the socialism of much of the economy, the demographic change in the electorate, the rationing of health care by the government, the surge of unionization and the crippling of talk radio.

Well done America, I hope you enjoy your decision. The key thing to remember from this editorial is the fact that your freedoms will be extinct in the near future. You will be bound to the federal government with no way out. Obama intends on molding Americans into pathetic, dependent drones. He doesn't have that far to go considering most already are. The only difference is that over the next four years he will make it so you HAVE to vote for him. As people are groomed to adopt Socialism and rely on there federal nanny the trap will be set. Vote for anyone else and you vote away that all important income. As a great man once said, Communism will never find its way back through the arena of ideas, but through the economic systems.

It Would be Funny, If It Wasn't so Tragic

So today marked the day where America has handed over its will to the Marxist regime. The day in which America has decided to abandon every virtue it was founded on. The day in which America has surrendered to the Socialist revolution. Yet, all the while I am being lectured to just "give him a chance." Excuse me while I vomit.

This shit I see today and have seen during the election started out as laughable but has transformed into a tragic comedy. This is the beginning of the end my friends, and it is petrifying. I know I know, stop with the drama you might say. "Your over reacting," you all say. Well I respond to these statements of ignorance by saying at least I HAVE a reaction. Just because I am not blinded by the angelic light exuded by the Messiah. Just because I do not follow lock step behind the great one as I chant his name like a zombie. So because I have a functioning brain and have not been effectively brainwashed, I am an over reacting wacko.

What really gets me about this whole thing is how the left is preaching "unity" now. How we "MUST" support the new Emperor. How we need to put "partisanship aside." How it is our "duty as Americans" to get behind our new Communist and Chief. I speak for the 50 million other real Americans who still have a functioning thought process when I say GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK! You have got to be kidding me. "Unity?" "Support?" You mean we should unite and support our new president like the Democrats did eight years ago? You mean we should "give him a chance," like the left did over the last eight years? Oh that's right, those things only apply when a licensed socialist takes the helm, I see. Time to put the "partisanship aside?" You mean like the left did as they attacked Bush every minute over the last eight years up until today at the inauguration? You mean put the partisanship aside like Palosi is as she rants about how she is going to bring the administration up on "war crimes"?

Since Michelle Obama seems to think that this country is "down right mean." Since she has such a low opinion of this country and has not been "proud to be an American until today." I wonder if she complained about all the idiots at the inauguration chanting derogatory things at Bush. Wouldn't you consider that a tad "mean" Michelle? Oh, that's right, that only applies to the right side of the aisle. My biggest question to everyone preaching "give him a chance," and "be happy for him" is WHY? Why should I be happy that we are embarking on a socialist revolution? Why should I be happy about a socialized economy? Why should I be happy about universal health care? Why should I be happy about a welfare tax plan? Why should I be happy about a weakened military, and a weakened stance on terror? Why should I be happy about a man that has the support of domestic and global terrorists? Why should I be happy about a man who advocates ideological fascism? Why should I be happy about a man who has the support of a racist, anti-American preacher? Why should I be happy about a man who intends on abandoning Israel as our long time allies? Why should I be happy about my country betraying the virtues and values of the founding fathers? Oh, that's right because he's black. So I guess blacks would turn out in brainwashed droves for Alan Keyes or Condaleeza Rice if they became president? Please. I know of people that relate to Hussein as a "celebrity" like figure. People have said they actually CRIED while watching the almighty one. I'm sorry, but I thought a president was supposed to be a president, not a rock star. This is by far the most nauseating thing of it all. Watching these blind idiots, chanting his name like Castro and Guevara, "crying" as they bathe in his angelic rays and godly words. Following him lock step, emotionally attached and intellectually impotent as he marches us off the cliff. When that happens, just remember that half of us did not vote for the "change" that is coming.

Yeah, I am thrilled, god bless the new President.

I'm Drew D. and that's the horrifying, tragic truth.

The Secret Socialist

So the Socialist agenda is slowly seeping it's way through prime time television. While this is nothing new, it is more obvious than ever. Admittedly the liberal agenda has indeed thrived through the media, just a tad more covertly. The "30 days" guy is one such example, The 30 Days on Minimum Wage, 30 Days with a Gun Nut, etc. These were just poorly disguised soap boxes used to sell liberalism. Then we have others throughout cable, like "Going Tribal." A show that promotes the "environmentalist" fascist agenda. They bound around the rain forests with no shoes screaming about the "rape of the land," and the "evil Westerners." Pretty much nothing new there either.

But the newest show I have seen takes sentiments right out of the Emperor's campaign slogans. Specifically, "Spread the wealth around," and "time to pitch in." The show is called The Secret Millionaire on Fox. Basically it is a show about a millionaire that goes under cover to live in a bad area of lower income. At the end he reveals what he truly is and then gives them money to help them. I will pause for the "awww's" and weeping. To the lay man this is just a sweet little program about how nice this millionaire is. To the skeptic and intelligent eye however, I see it for what it is.

In the intro to this show they actually say " A man that decides he needs to SPREAD THE WEALTH." As you watch this obscene display of conspicuous socialist advocacy it becomes unbearable. The man and his wife go to Watts, an extremely bad neighborhood in South Central L.A. While they do show how bad it is, they high light another aspect of the neighborhood I found interesting. They show citizens in the community talking about how "good the people are here." How they all try to "help each other." Then in obvious contrast they cut to the wife of the millionaire who complains about how that "isn't like her neighborhood." The theme? To show how cold the rich neighborhoods are, and how down to earth, civil, and warm Watts is. A reasonable comparison right?

The goal of this show is to promote the idea that the rich should apologize for their success. Not only to apologize, but to be self-loathing at the same time. The goal is to make those who are well off feel like bad people if they to do not either "spread their wealth," or PROMOTE THE THEORY of re-distribution. The point of the show is say that there are others out there that "deserve" the money more than you. And that the only way to facilitate this "economic justice" is to take from those who have and give to those who don't. We in economics and on planet Earth have a word for this theory, it is called Socialism. This is just yet another example of the enemy within infiltrating America. They are and have been slowly manipulating the public through these "cute" little shows. The sad part is, the public seems too stupid to figure out what is going on. Fox really took the "spread the wealth around," comments of the Furor to heart. Maybe soon they will come out with Who Wants to be a Communist?

I'm Drew D. and that's the truth.

The Teflon Elect

As many of you should already know, our new Furor (elect) seems to be carrying on the Chicago tradition. The tradition of corruption and political thuggery. This is now considered to be "accepted" by the mainstream Obamedia as simply "The Chicago Way." The more outrageous the facts get for the Furor the more they slip off him. In true Gotti fashion, and ironically in true Capone fashion, the Emperor can do no wrong. The true danger of the Teflon Elect is that no matter what happens, no matter what is proved, no matter what is said, he remains impervious and devine. Just look at the timeline and see how the facts didn't matter to the Obamedia or the "American" people.

First it was Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his "God Damn America," and "America's chickens have come home to roost," comments. Fact, Obama attended the church for twenty years. Fact, Obama contributed 24k/year to the church. Fact, this church preaches racism, anti-American rhetoric, and separatism. When asked if he (Obama) has ever witnessed such hate spouting over his twenty year tenure his response was "No." He claimed that he just used the church for his "political expediency." Even IF this was true, does it make it O.K. that he put aside any shred of decency to advance his career?

Then it was the connection between William Ayers and the Furor. Fact, Obama's political career was started in Ayers's living room. Fact, Ayers and Obama sat on the same community agitation boards in South Chicago for years. Fact, Ayers and Obama attend ceremonies in Venezuela to "honor" Hugo Chavez and applaud his radicalization of education. Fact, Obama supported a bill proposed by Ayers that promoted the radicalization of education here in the U.S. When asked about this connection Obama's response was; "He was just a guy in the neighborhood that I knew." Fact, Ayers was a leader of the domestic terrorist group "The Weather Underground," and bombed the Pentagon, Capital Building, and the NYC Police Dept. Fact, Ayers not only did not ever apologize for these actions but stated; "We didn't do enough." When asked how he (Obama) felt about these atrocities committed by this "guy he knew" he responded; "I was only eight years old at the time." Fact, he might have been eight when the bombings occurred, but he was well into his twenties and thirties while his career was launched from his living room and he worked with him on several boards.

Then there was the Tony Rezko situation. Fact, Obama considered Rezko a "friend and fundraiser." Fact, Obama was involved in a sweet heart deal with Rezko in which he purchased a piece of property for 300k below retail value. Fact, Obama and Rezko were involved in many other "shady" real estate deals throughout Chicago. Fact, Rezko was convicted of sixteen counts of corruption and bribery in 2008. When Obama was asked about these dealings with this scum bag his response was, "I worked on a real estate deal concerning the lot across the street, that's all." Fact, Obama lied point blank.

Now there is more scandal being exposed today with indictments on Illinois Governor Blagojevich. Fact, Blagojevich is on tape making deals in an attempt to auction off the empty Senate seat left by Obama. Fact, the central allegation is that the governor schemed to extort money and jobs for himself and his wife from the Obama transition team in exchange for naming Obama's preferred candidate (unnamed in the charges) to the open Senate seat. The complaint details Blagojevich's attempts to contact intermediaries to the transition, and in one case it shows him soliciting favors from a union official he identifies as an "emissary." When asked how he (Obama) felt about all of this he responded , "I had no idea what was going on." Fact, Obama was specifically mentioned on the FBI's wire taps as "that motherfucker." In the context that, Blagojevich would never just give away Obama's senate seat to whoever that "motherfucker" wanted just because he asked nicely. Meaning that he would not just give the seat away, but would most certainly sell it at the right price.

With all of these facts, and knowledge of Obama's character, does anyone seem to care? Does anyone even raise a single eye brow about these connections to criminals, domestic terrorists, and racists? Nope. It is my belief that people are so down right brainwashed that they ignore pretty much everything about our new Furor. The Obamazombies and the Obamedia refuse to report the news, and refuse to even attempt to contest the Emperor. Obama is truly the Teflon Elect, he can do no wrong and nobody cares if he does. As I have said before, the facts do not matter to the left, it is all about the agenda. The agenda that is moving forward at an incredible rate while nothing seems to stand in its way. I truly believe that as Obama takes hold as the almighty Messiah and people fall deeper into their Obacoma the country will fall. Let's hope I am wrong, but I doubt I am.

I'm Drew D. and that's the amazingling shocking truth.

Happy Tax Holidays?

When I first heard Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) explain his simple yet genius alternative to the bailouts I knew that it was far too smart to ever become a reality. However, he does pose a good point, politicians rely on their constituents. I defy you to find a person (a tax paying person) with even the slightest knowledge of basic economics that would reject this idea. If people really got behind this idea, and let their representatives know, Washington would listen. Even if begrudgingly, even if they themselves didn't fully back it, re-election is their life blood.

Sadly I feel that this plan will never get off the ground. Washington invariably chooses to avoid any idea with a hint of logic or common sense. Just how logical is Gohmert's plan? In my opinion it boils down to a few simple questions. Who do you trust more with your tax dollars? The career bureaucrats in Washington, or yourself? Do you feel that Washington has exemplified fiscal responsibility over the past decade? Do you feel that the answers to our economic woes can be found in the halls of Congress? Or do you have more faith in the responsibility of the tax payers? We the people are the ones that can get this economy back on track. Giving more hand outs to failing companies and to banks that just hoard the cash doesn't seem like the best idea to me. I trust the American people far more than I trust this give away orgy that is being orchestrated by "King" Paulson. He is absolutely right when he says "let the American people decide who gets bailed out." If they choose to buy an American car with their newly freed funds, then so be it. As consumer confidence builds and spending increases economic troubles will ease. This is far cheaper than the proposed Paulson plan, not to mention a thousand times more logical. Not only is Gohmert's plan more logical than Paulson's but it is more plausible that it would be effective. Throwing money at these problems while increasing the size of an already inept government is definitely not the solution.

I trust the American tax payer to be far more responsible with the funds that are being given away. I trust that the American tax payer can stimulate the economy better than the bureaucrats can. I believe in the power of the American tax payer, and I believe in the powers of free market Capitalism. I know that if the money is put in the hands of we citizens it will produce far better results than any corporate bailout ever could.

I'm Drew D. and that's the truth.

Gestapo Training

Have you all heard the news yet? To all of those "activists" roaming around college campuses stinking of bong water and patchouli who still have a man crush on our Emperor Obama, I would suggest you start paying attention to what is going on. For a group of people that absolutely despise the idea of a draft, or any sort of government mandated defense service, you sure picked a winner for President. It is called the Civil Defense Act

This whole thing sounds incredibly gestapo-Esq to me. Just pin the letters "OA" (Obama's Army) instead of "SS" on their uniforms and there you go. So we are to create a "civil" military that is "as well funded" and "as well trained" as the real military? I am normally not one for conspiracy theories but my mind has been running rampant with them lately. If you have studied Nazi Germany at all you can see the petrifying similarities between now and then. Fascism makes up the roots of liberalism, and Obama is the head of this snake. His followers march behind him lock step as if he is a super natural deity. These people literally worship the ground he walks on which will have dangerous results. Media control, and systematic brainwashing of the youth as seen here, are also scary signs. Emotion is what drives these followers, reason has been cast aside. That kind of blind faith of any leader has historically had disastrous consequences. Obama has been labeled as "extremely charismatic," and an "extraordinary speaker", so was Hitler. He has also been tagged as "highly manipulative," and "creepy." This is not me taking editorial license, these are the words of Democrats like these.

So now we have this "charismatic," "manipulative," leader who's followers march blindly in his wake driven by raw emotion. It is becoming trendy to hate the oppostion, to hate conservative ideas, hate being the key word. We have an impending censorship doctrine about to take effect that will drown out every last voice of opposition. The youth are being systematically brainwashed through our schools and "educators." We are about to have mandated "civil defense" camps used to defend the office of the President if by some chance the rest of the country starts to disagree. It fits perfectly into his grand plan. Disarm the average person in his home by eliminating the second amendment. Next, implement an armed force that will be required to fight for his cause. Leaving any remaining dissenters without any option of recourse. Is this situation starting to sound at all similar to any situation you have seen in the past? Germany, China, the Soviet Union perhaps? Just a thought.
Apparently I am not the only one who believes that there is good reason to be frightened about the appointment of our new Furor.

I'm Drew D. and that's the truth.

Can I Get Bailed Out Too?

Is this the beginning of the end for the American economy and capitalism as we know it? Is it the end of true conservatism in America as we know it? Of coarse I have to think this isn't the case, but a part of me isn't so sure. We are grooming a generation of people to believe that the government should baby sit them from cradle to grave. Entitlements have taken over the American spirit and the American work ethic. Suddenly everything has become a right. When I say everything I really mean everything. It is now considered a right to own a home, a right to get a college education, a right to money that others made. This entitlement get everything for nothing mentality is only the tip of the economic ice burg.
Bailouts, am I the only one that just had a huge question mark in their head when they first heard about this policy? Bailouts? What the hell is a bailout? You live or you die in a free market economy, either way if left alone it equals prosperity. The problem is we are slowly polluting and deconstructing the free market. It first started with the housing giants Fannie and Freddy because "we had to do it." We "had" to do it because the blame was placed squarely on their shoulders. While they surely are to blame for the majority of this quandary, nobody ever thought to blame the people. Those who applied for and accepted loans knowing full well they could never pay them back.
The bailouts of AIG, Freddy and Fannie have truly opened Pandora's box. Soon after this nauseating "rescue" package was constructed everybody came running with their hand out. Every state and many cities in the union began to demand "their share" of the funds. Now this free for all bailout orgy has expanded to the auto industry. We are being told once again that we "have to" bail out these failed auto companies. Let me just stick my neck out here and say HELL NO! Where does it end, if we bail out every single institution and company that faces extinction, where do we draw the line? Fiscal responsibility is something I feel we have completely abandoned as a virtue throughout America and more importantly the government.
We can not afford this people, we truly can not. Some one, some where is going to have to pay this bill and it simply can't be done. So every time a company runs themselves into the ground through poor management and corruption we have to rescue them? This is a slippery slope that we are presented with. Once people see that being "bailed out" has become a viable option the begging will never end.
Why do think that the major proponents of this "bailout" policy are members of the loony left i.e. Palosi, Reed, etc? They advocate this for the reason that many seem to ignore. The convenient little bi-product of these government bail outs is the transfer of ownership. Once these companies accept this charity they virtually sell their souls (ownership.) For those of you who don't know, this is called socialism, the favored system of the left. The biggest condition of these bail outs is the fact that once they go through they have to do exactly what the government wants. This entire policy is so ludicrous I almost don't have words for it. So let's take institutions and companies that have been run into the ground because of the government and give them complete OWNERSHIP of them, this sounds like a good plan. These pseudo-governmental firms like Fannie and Freddy were destroyed because of left wing corruption, so now the government controls them absolutely. The auto companies are failing because of insane trade regulations and "environmentalist" bullying so now we are about to hand the reigns over to the government. This is the equivalent of making the worst employee in your business the boss of it all. Say you owned a restaurant and you had a bus boy that was absolutely awful. He slowed down the service, left the tables dirty, and was stealing from you to boot. So instead of firing him when you come across financial difficulty you decide to step down as owner and hand it all over to the bus boy to help you out of the hole.
This welfare nation that we have created is a beast that's hunger can never be satisfied. Socialism has been sold to people hook line and sinker, and it will be the end of us. Financial responsibility has been tossed out the window by everyone across the board. From the individual citizen that has to buy his own house and pay his own way through school, to the corporations that have destroyed themselves. With this abandonment of responsibility through this adoption of entitlement the American spirit is dying. Democracy will come to an end once people start to exploit the benefits sucked from the public treasury. This welfare mentality will have a snow ball effect as it did in France. People will continue to vote for the person that guarantees them more and more benefits from said treasury. As this person will more than likely be a Democrat the progression to a France like socialist nation will be inevitable.
My biggest fear is that conservatives in Washington today believe that this is the wave of the future. They will start to pander to the people by offering the very same liberal policies that we have fought so hard against. Nothing infuriates me more than seeing all of these "conservatives," crying about the election saying that we lost because we aren't liberal enough. Saying that we need to become MORE liberal in order to get elected. Are you nuts? You really believe this while you sit there and call yourself conservative? This is NOT a center-left country, it is most certainly center-right, and if you don't agree with that then please go sign your name to the Dem list. As we distinguish ourselves from the socialist left over the next four years we must go back to our conservative roots. We must re-establish our values of financial responsibility and find our own super stars that will bring the TRUE conservative message to the masses. Once people see what they really voted for and start to experience it's implications they will realize that capitalism, free markets, and essentially the conservative movement is the only answer for a prosperous country.
Let us please remember that it was "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." Not , "Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you."
Let us also remember that once you give the government the power to give you everything, you give it the power to take everything away.
I'm Drew D. and that's the truth.
