GOP “Flim-Flamed” AGAIN By The Dems!
GOP “Flim-Flamed” AGAIN By The Dems!
Obama gets his debt ceiling raised… GOP gets PROMISES!
Democrats Raping and Pillaging of America to Continue!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Is there a “stupid” gene we republicans have that democrats don’t? Are we born with a warped DNA that, somehow, forces us to fall for the oldest democrat trick in the book time, after time, after time? Are republicans “hard-wired” to play the fool at the democrats beckoning?
Why in the world would any conservative in his or her right mind vote for the debt-ceiling bill agreed upon Sunday? WHY?
The bill offers nothing but a royal involuntary fornication of the GOP and the American people who sent a flock of conservative republicans to the US House to put a stop to just this sort of flim-flam the democrats have been perpetrating on the nation for decades!
Why the heck aren’t the conservative representatives doing their jobs? Have they all come down with “Potomac Fever?” If so, there is definitely a cure. Send them all back to where they came from and select a whole new batch of conservative candidates for the primaries next year!
Yeah, I am outraged that the Speaker of the House even agreed to bring this bill up before the House. It is NOT WORTHY of consideration.
The promises of future spending cuts are not worth the paper they are written upon. In fact the paper is worth far MORE. History teaches us that – in SPADES!
We conservatives have been “had” too many times to bend over and assume the position for the democrats – AGAIN! But – they did.
Look. The Mainstream Media will be crowing about what a heck of a great deal this is coming out of Obama and Reid’s senate. Bet on it! Rest assured – if the Mainstream Media is for it – then conservative republicans ought to be against it.
We conservatives have lost more than our money with this deceitful bill. We may have just lost the election of 2012 – in advance! That means the democrats get to continue their spending spree and financial chaos in the US is assured.
There no REAL spending cuts in the bill. And that tiny amount that IS in the bill will be spread over ten years. For all intents and purposes, nothing, I mean NOTHING has changed in Washington.
Also worrisome is that roughly 50% of the cuts will come out of our national defense budget. That is mindless. The men and women in our armed forces, protecting us around the world, must have everything they need, when they need it, where they need it, and in as great a quantity as they need to keep America safe. End of discussion.
I, along with a large number of Americans, am beginning to wonder if our government is so broken it can never be repaired. When you send enough men and women to the House of Representatives with a commission to stop the democrat’s raping and pillaging of our country -- and they can’t seem to screw-up enough courage to accomplish their mission, then, certainly, SOMETHING is drastically wrong with our system of government.
P.J. O’Rourke once said: “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” He was spot on. Just look at the incompetents we have in our government from the White House through both houses of Congress.
As I observe this latest power play by the democrats that will insure they will continue their wild spending until the total collapse of this nation, I can hear the warning of Barry Goldwater reverberating off the walls of history: “A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.”
And there is this pearl of wisdom from Richard Lamm: “Christmas is the time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell government what they want and their kids pay for it.”
It won’t be just our kids who will pay for it – but our grandkids and our great-grandkids. That is, of course, if America survives, in some form, long enough.
It’s a black day for America’s future.
