Sowell: Oust Dems to Halt Obama Before 'Point of No Return'
NewsMax ^ | August 30, 2010 | Jim Meyers/Thomas Sowell

Posted on 08/30/2010 3:17:20 PM PDT by jazusamo

Influential economist Thomas Sowell tells Newsmax that voters must oust Democrats from their majorities in Congress to stop the Obama administration from continuing to take the country toward the “point of no return.”

Professor Sowell, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, also says it is “madness” to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire at the end of the, year as Obama and the Democrats appear intent on doing.

Sowell is also a syndicated columnist and prolific author whose latest book is “Dismantling America: and Other Controversial Essays.”

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Sowell says he is pessimistic about the future.

“Part of it is due to the continuation of a long set of trends. But much of it is also due to the fact that the current administration is really escalating these trends that are going in the wrong direction.

“One of those trends is the notion that there’s some elite out there who ought to be taking decisions out of our hands and concentrating them in the hands of politicians, bureaucrats, and judges. That’s the big domestic problem.

“The huge international problem is our doing nothing while Iran is developing nuclear weapons, given that Iran is the largest sponsor of international terrorism in the world.”

Another trend “is the notion that people have rights for which there is no basis in any law, in any constitution, or in any organized philosophical or religious tradition.

“I saw a photograph recently of someone sitting on a corner with a sign saying, ‘I have a right to a job.’ I have no idea where that right comes from, and it can only be sustained if other people don’t have a right...

Thomas Sowell = 5000 times smarter than Barry Soetoro.

Sowell’s point is right, I am not so sure we aren’t past the point of no return. We will not survive the debt we currently have.

>>Sowell: Oust Dems to Halt Obama Before ‘Point of No Return’<<

We hit the point of no return before he was elected. Even back in 2008 I was mentioning that McCain might have actually wanted to lose because the party knew that whichever party was at the helm when this thing melted down it would be that party that was blamed for it.

But Obama’s utter incompetence has ensured that it will be truly spectacular when it happens. Not that spectacular amounts of blood in the street is a good thing.

No way, no how. We are like a family with a 10,000 a month income with a 9800 a month total interest payment on our debt, and our income just dropped to 6,000 a month.

And we owe the money to the mob. Ouch!

The voters just indured that a Democrat will be elected to the Senate from Arizona in the mid term election. it may be a Democrat masquerading as a Republican,a/k/a John Mc Cain or a real Democrat, but it will still be a Democrat.

The unknown factor is whether the real Democrat, if elected, will advance the obama agenda. Mc Cain’s history is evidence thatr he will. Leopards cannot change their spots.

It’s a shame the first black president had to be zero.

Unfortunately, the United States passed the point of no return sometime during the administration of FDR.

My guess is they, the Democrats, are saving the tax thing for an October ‘surprise’ and will wait until the eve of the election to stop the taxes from going up. I think by that time it will just about the only ace they will have up their sleeves! At the rate the country is going now they will be mighty desperate for something, anything, to offset the displeasure the people will be champing at the bit to express at the polls!

You know that old saw about not worrying until you see the bomb disposal guy running away faster than you?

That’s Dr. Sowell and our economy.

You may well be right but I think it’ll be too little, too late, at least I hope so.

That number needs a lot more zeroes.
