Enough already

3.8 trillion. Let me repeat that 3.8 trillion dollars. We are in a recession borderline depression and our government wants to spend 3.8 trillion dollars. If our GDP is 14 trillion and possibly shrinking that means our government is spending over 27 percent of the our national GDP. That does not even include state spending which could add another 7 to 10 percent. How in this free land of opportunity is our country supposed to prosper if our government spends almost 40% of our money? 19% of households do not pay taxes. How can 41% (or low 40’s) of households support 40% (or high 30’s) with 19% doing nothing? This is an unsustainable endeavor that will end badly for all parties involved. How was it possible for George Bush to spend unprecedented amounts of money with a republican controlled congress? Now his and the conviction less republicans actions have lead to more and more government intervention and spending. The progress of freedom is being drained by the actions of the leaders of this great country and they stand in the way of the American people from keeping it that way. You cannot socialize our problems away. You cannot tax our problems away. You cannot spend our problems away. You can however reduce government spending, and taxation to make some of our economic problems go away. If the private sector was taxed less than 37% maybe they would be able to hire American workers instead of contracting jobs in China for cheaper labor and more tax friendly 25%. A reduction of spending of 18% and a tax reduction of 12% will close the deficit and put our employers on a more level playing field with our Chinese counterparts. Production of American products is the ONLY way out of our current economic mess. No bailout to the banks or auto industry would have as big of an effect on the economy as lowering government spending and taxes. Bush has paved a yellow brick road for Obama to tax more, war more, spend more, and bail out their friends in high places with our money. It is time us as Americans spoke up and followed Reagan and his mantra that Government is not the solution, but the problem itself. We need a judicial system that will have the testicular fortitude to stand up to our government and deem laws unconstitutional when they indeed are. We need our government to vote on individual laws are on the agenda and not 2000 pages of pork that help special interests. We need a president who is held to a high standard who cherishes the constitution and the rights of individuals and not play Robin Hood. We need citizens who work hard for their own share of the pie and get to keep their fair share. We need citizens who will step up and take a slightly smaller bonus to do the right thing and employee a deserving individual for a much needed job. It is time we reward those who deserve it and not those who do not. No more handouts to anyone it is not the governments right to do such things. Everyone shall work for their own share of the pie and pay the government for the holding of the government itself, currency in the form of gold and silver, national defense and that is it as stated in the constitution. There will be no more payments to those in need by the government. That will be done by the citizens and churches as intended by our constitution. It is time that our country showed the rest of the world how it is truly done the right and American way once again. It is time we showed the world how to be instead of the United States moving to the social ways of the world below our standard of living. We enrich all through hard work allowing for Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest to occur. Those who are strong, smart and work hard will prosper while those who are not will fall by the wayside. We are granted life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The socialism proposed removes all three of these constitutional rights. Abortion is against the right to life. Unprecedented taxation and removal of many of the bill of rights are against liberty and the pursuit of happiness is hindered when money that I work hard for can be taken from me and given to someone who doesn’t try, to a bank who has bad business practices or to a no bid contract given to some government official who received some contribution money from a company. I am done being mad and upset of the improper use and unconstitutional authority over the past 9 years that our government had no right to claim. The gloves have come off and I will fight the good fight against those who overstep their boundaries. I have written my elected officials and I will continue to do so. I will make my voice heard and will support any candidate who supports freedom and the constitution. I pray against a day where a second revolution has to happen, but if needed I will be there, if it needs to be lead. God bless all of us and God bless America.
