Deadbeat nation???

President Obama at yesterday's news conference.

President Obama at yesterday’s news conference.

Republicans began the session by reading the Constitution aloud on the floor of the House. Well, I think that’s a great place to start, and sends the appropriate message to the Obama Administration. It should be very clear to any “reasonable” person, that in consideration of an election decided by about the number of Republicans who stayed home, The United States of America is a nation divided right down the middle.

Now there are many reasons for this division having to do with everything from the education, or rather indoctrination of our young ones in the public school system, to a media which has forgotten its responsibilities to “We the People“, but make no mistake, we are at a turning point as a nation. The President of The United States is without any doubt an ideologue, bolstered by a second term, and who has shown he is willing to press beyond the boundaries of the Constitution and/or the Bill of Rights. Those who know him tell us this is the “entire package”, a person we did not necessarily see the first time around, though I would disagree with the notion he did not make plain “his” vision for America in 2008. Many simply chose to ignore his words for the sake of his skin color and a promised utopia. That said, there can be no illusions. President Barack Obama now sees himself as the star receiver who will carry the (progressive football of change) over the political goal line, dodging any Constitutional cornerbacks along the way. “The American People agreed with me.” This is his mantra. Be damned the nearly half of those people who voted against him and his policies. History tells us delusion is often the friend of the ideologue who sees himself as the righter of perceived wrongs.

Inevitably, right minded members of Congress now have a responsibility to forgo their respective re-election chances and do what must be done to stop this assault on the Constitution. I submit to all of you, this battle is no less important than any our brave Soldiers have fought in order to preserve our children’s future, and the outcome no less pivotal. I now call on all of you to speak out. Start a blog, attend a hearing on an important issue and voice your opinion, or write to the editor of your local news paper. If you value our heritage of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness“, then silence and apathy are no longer options.

The Self Destruct Button…

The so-called “fiscal cliff” was nothing more than a response to the accountability gauntlet laid out by both the WH and Congress, intended to make “We the People” believe our representative government actually gave a rats you know what about our kids futures. In essence, a made up deadline that when reached, only triggers the cold and broken reality of gridlock politics in Washington.

375px-US_Public_Debt_Ceiling_1981-2010Now the “debt ceiling”, well that’s a whole different ball game. So it was interesting to hear the POTUS going on about how Republicans somehow want to prevent the nation from paying its bills on his weekly radio broadcast. (No Sir, they want to keep those bills from growing beyond our “ability” to pay them). He even attempted to draw a comparison line to the government shut-down of 1995. In fairness, some of the political components may be the same. But the monetary dynamic is something very different, and unlike anything we have ever faced before. The numbers today are, for all intents and purposes, the end of the “green back” road for us. At nearly sixteen and one half trillion dollars in debt, The United States is not only broke Mr. President, it’s darn near bankrupt, and credit reporting agencies like Moody’s know it. Consequently, and in full view of this financial Tsunami, Mr. Obama’s approach in the weeks ahead will be to ask for yet another blank check, signed by the next generation, so he can burn off another boat load of borrowed money that we just don’t have, on a bunch of foolishness that just doesn’t work.

So as our economy remains on life support, with its full potential reined in by bureaucrats in Washington bent on ideological change, “We the People” are left to watch in utter confusion, as those sent to represent our best interest prepare to push the self-destruct button on our economy, as well as a better America for our children.

“Out of control” spending…

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyLmru6no4U’] I thought it was interesting that “FOX NEWS” was the only major network broadcasting the President’s stump speech from 2008 where he characterized President Bush as “unpatriotic” for using a “credit card issued by the People’s Republic of China” to raise the national debt ceiling. I wonder which credit card he’s using to double that very number now. I wonder which one he is using to chain our great-grandchildren to the yoke of international debt at the cost of their own futures and freedoms. Isn’t it ironic that something so glaringly obvious is so conveniently overlooked by the “main stream press” when reporting on President Barack Obama?

Now while we have come to expect this from most of the media today, sadly there are many partisans and sycophants who will ignore this type of blatant hypocrisy by our President and support him in spite of the facts. Moreover, they deny as if it were not reality, his total failure to accomplish anything but the most ideological of initiatives as our nation’s Chief Executive.

I wonder if Americans are just simply numb to the fact that this Administration is on par to eclipse $20 trillion in debt even before the new health care law is fully enacted. My God, “asleep at the wheel” of a hurtling tractor-trailer without brakes is an understatement when used to describe the registered voters who are still polling this President in the high forties.
