Well, we cannot say we didn't see it coming. Overall, we must be ready to accept that this government (especially this Congress) is out of touch with all but a minority of the people.
With such a low showing in the latest Rasmussen poll, I have to wonder: Who are the 10% of people, who really think their Congress is doing a good job?
Who could they be?
I bet most are either:
A) The government.
B) Those who are dependent on government.
Big government needs itself. Because they are the causes of the problems, they say need to be fixed. It's a co-dependent, unusual, symbiotic relationship. One begets the other.
The people who need big government are those people, who the government has thoroughly convinced that they need their services.... or they cannot survive. They are the tools, they are the weapons. Without them, the government believes they have no other purpose.
But in the meantime, big government sticks it to the people who are working hard to not be dependent on the government, but on themselves. Can anyone who thinks government is the answer to everything tell me, how this is the slightest bit fair?
If you haven't read Mustang's post today, I would recommend that you do so. Take a look at the taxes that we are required to pay to run a government. Even with this multitude of revenue sources, the government still spends far more than it brings in.
Right now, big government is telling us that it needs to be bigger. They want you and me to believe that they know what's best for us all and that is to spend more money.
Spend, spend, spend.
Borrow, borrow, borrow.
Print, print, print.
Then, tax. tax, tax.
Almost all growth that has taken place since Obama took office has been generated by money that the government has borrowed. Government has grown and so have Democratic special interest lobbying firms.
They have spent trillions that have produced no results. They have been lining the pockets of the union bosses, the Soros-styled bankers clique, and the legal industry, so it comes as no surprise that nothing has materialized in the private sector.
Get ready America. Because if you do not kick these people out of office and replace them with more competent leadership, your taxes are going to raise to pay for all of this squandering .
All of it.
By re-electing this bunch, you will be surrendering power unto them, almost unlimited. They will feel empowered to run over all of us and will not stop. Reinforcing the current political model is not the message that needs to be sent. Things need cleaned up and fast.
This is not a test of the emergency broadcast system.
This is real.
