Governor Palin: We the People are Stuck Subsidizing the Left’s “Losers”
Conservatives4Palin ^ | April 5, 2013 | Stacy Drake

Posted on 04/05/2013 8:08:38 PM PDT by Bratch

Governor Palin posted a statement on Facebook about today’s news that Fisker Automotive is laying off three-fourths of its U.S. workers:

Once again, the American public lost when the Obama administration attempted to pick “winners and losers” in the free market. Today the electric car company Fisker Automotive, which received nearly $200 million in taxpayer money, is laying off three-fourths of its U.S. workers.

The Anaheim, CA-based start up has failed at pretty much every level – especially when it comes to the company’s ultra expensive luxury electric hybrid, the Karma (what a name!), which is assembled in Finland and received a green-energy loan to transition the assembly to the U.S., something that never happened.

This losing tax-subsidized venture joins other past losers like the Obama-subsidized Volt that gets 40 miles per battery charge, or like the Obama-subsidized Tesla that turns into a “brick” when the battery completely discharges and then costs $40,000 to repair.

This is really just the latest manifestation of the administration’s crony capitalism as their green energy buddies benefit from this atrocious waste of taxpayer money. Americans really need to get outraged by these wasteful ventures. As we’ve seen time and time again, We the People are always stuck subsidizing the left’s “losers.”

So what’s the solution and where do Americans go with our outrage? Stand up against the crony capitalism and elect only those who understand and will let America’s marketplace dictate economic successes, instead of letting politicians (some who have never run any business nor even worked in the private sector) choose free enterprises’ winners and losers. Take a stand, friends. Nothing will change unless you do.

- Sarah Palin

Start with a massive tax revolt. If that doesn't work burn down their godamn houses.

The time for revolt is now. PERIOD.

Sarah says.....So what’s the solution and where do Americans go with our outrage?...basically her answer..vote.

Ok we did that...but I am unconvinced doing so is the answer anymore....aside from voter fraud...there are just not enough people opposing this onslaught...and that would include those going into the streets.

Look, we marched on washington in droves....we listened to them and worked hard to get the right people in by voting...there simply isn’t enough time to get the people needed in office to stop this trajectory.

As I see it at best it will take the least of ten years...and likely not that....so where will this nation be by then? They’ll have all that time to either push thru the “junk” we have to live with...or at best nothing at all will get done to change it around.

Hello Onyx! I see Palin’s still out there doing her thing! But I have to admit I’m afraid voting isn’t going to work with the time frames ahead.

I missed the whole election this year Onyx, computer was down for over a year! I learned life away from it is a good thing. But I’m back up now...hopefully managing my time on it better than before...FR is addictive!

GOOD to see you, dear caww! If amnesty passes, we’re done. Finished. The whole nation will go the way of CA, which was a reliable Republican state in presidential elections before the 1986 amnesty.

Voting isn't going to work as long as no one asks for IDs at the polls and vote manipulation and ginning aren't tracked down and pinched out. As it is now, there are too many in office (Al Franken, Harry Reid, etc.) put there by imaginary people, literally. The reason they have to cheat is because if they didn't, they'd lose. There are more of us than there are of them, and Palin is saying what I'm thinking.

God bless Palin.

Everybody get out there and vote! But don’t elect politicians! Elect people who say what we wanta’ hear! But no matter what, only vote for those with an “R” behind their names. /s

I agree, if it passes it’s over...I am much afraid it will...our guys are caving all over the place anymore...and at best just giving lip servie.

Our country has been invaded for a very long time now.....and that now from every direction....I don’t think our politicians are interested in stopping it either.

They won..cheating works for them....no matter how they painted with that brush...there was little opposition and grand amounts of corruption....ALL bartering among themselves for their own gain, we get a few scraps from their table.....and the newbies we do get in are quickly swallowed up or spun around...forced to play the game or they are totally lost in the shuffle.

In the world of politics they are rarely losers since they have the ability to amass millions in personal assets at the public trough.

One can still be a uber loser with great wealth (e.g. nobama or klintoons).
