A somewhat long winded, propaganda filled run on statement on facebook. I think it's full of crap, and I'd request one of you fact filled, eliquoent writers to help with reply... Here it is...
Under Bush: Debt increased 1.6 Billion dollars A DAY.
Under Obama: 4.1 Billion Dollars A DAY. (this was new spending, it was not residue from Bush)
I wish people would get their facts straight - then maybe we could solve the Actual problems,... instead of the government issued ones people keep swallowing.
The only way is a Balanced Budget Amendment - forcing the Government to balance and stop running debt, and to stop printing too much money.
This happened to Germany in the 1930's - the outcome was not good.The last two years are more pertinent than thirty years ago. And in the last two years - the economy has gone to hell (comparatively, it's still pretty kick-ass). But the foreshadowing of bad winds looms with the mad methods we are seeing from the current administration.
They have no plan, the only plan Obama ever proposed was so embarrassingly ridiculous it got a unanimous rejection from his own Democrat controlled Senate. Wassup wi'dat?
The reason they have never proposed a budget - is because they DON'T WANT ONE.
If they had a budget - they would be forced to heed it, and they don't want to heed it, they want to deplete the value of the dollar, as Soros did to the Bank of England in the early 90's.
You buy into that rich/poor/us/them reject everything that binds families and makes nations strong line being promulgated by Obama and the Media - and you are as good as a prisoner of the war. You will eventually develop Stockholm Syndrome (if you haven't already) and believe your captors are your saviors.
Obama and company are not saviors, they're the modern equivalent of Bolshevists.
I didn't just start following this stuff because John Stewart's writers noticed it. I've been watching this for a long time. Bush grew government like a drunken Democrat, and pissed off a lot of conservatives - and they had every right to be pissed, of course there was the issue of the Middle East and the near collapse of the airline industry due to 911, then the threat of Saddam burning the oil fields - again (the real threat of Saddam Hussein in whose case the weapon of mass destruction was a blue-tip match).
But because your first comment automatically resolves to blaming FOX, you basically forfeit any objective opinion - though you try not to show what smacks of class conflict, internally. Maybe you grew up without money and resent those who have it, or perhaps you had it and feel guilty. But you want to blame somebody for the current mess, and because I suggest it's the fault of the intentionally budget-averse Obama administration - you attempt to denigrate me by accusing me of sitting around watching FOX News all day. That's a laugh.
For two reasons:
1) FOX News is the #1 News source in the country, and watched by more Democrats than all the other outlets combined.
2) People who "claim" to be "intelligent", somehow juuuust can't seem to understand the difference between a News program and an Opinion & Editorial based program. (There is a difference, that's why there are - hellooo 2 different names for them).
The out-of-control-spending under Obama, is undeniable. More than ANY other President in US History. Look it up. And though Reagan had to borrow - it was because a lot of things were left to deteriorate under the previous administrations, and by 1980 the country was still fighting a cold war, and the country was still reeling from Viet Nam, and the oil embargoes, and all sorts of other problems. Reagan raised the debt limit many times - did it get anywhere near what it ballooned to in the last two years?
The Reagan era led to the most prosperous quarter century in history. Bush 41 blew it by trusting the Dems who promised Tax Cuts in exchange for raising the debt limit - which they never made good on, and cost him the 92 re-election bid. Reagan fell for it too, they promised to cut taxes and not raise them in exchange for Reagan making concessions - they lied to him. His biggest regret about his presidency was having believed they would make good on their word.
Now Obama asks the same thing...again. The boy who cried wolf.
Can HE be trusted? Of course not.
