That alone would cut more than 2/3rds of the federal spending, and we ought to begin working towards complying with the Constitution before it loses its remaining value to this country.
The leftist pansies who are running (ruining) this nation have been using our Constitution for toilet paper. They are traitors. Barry is blameless as he isn't even a legitimate citizen. He's just a criminal, muslim communist puppet whose strings are being pulled by Soros and the rest of the internationalist conspiracy.
Walter Williams is correct.
If you’re a principled business owner competing against another business that uses government to get a favorable regulation or subsidy, YOU LOSE.
If you obey the law, hire personnel, and pay the appropriate payroll taxes for your employees, while your competitor pays illegal aliens under the table, YOU LOSE.
If you live responsibly and save for retirement while your irresponsible neighbor gets a handout or government intentionally inflates away the value of your life savings, YOU LOSE.
If you live a moral life, don’t cheat on your spouse, and provide for your children while the welfare mom down the street gets a payout for every child she pushes out while living with her boyfriend in secret, YOU LOSE.
How is an honest, moral, responsible person supposed to take care of themselves and their family when the system is rigged to the advantage of lawbreakers, liars, and cheats?
Probably won’t be saved before literal Armageddon.
However, Christ will pull the remnants together again, imho.
Short answer: yes
Long answer: it’ll take some smarts and hard work
Our entire Federal government needs to be torn down and rebuilt on the Constitution and the Bill or Rights. Same thing for the DoJ. States themselves need to sit down, look at the BoR, and sh*tcan anything that violates it. The 10th gives them power not ceded to the Fedgov, but some things are off limits even to them.
All of this needs to happen or we will be just another footnote in History.
Prof. Wiliams is totally correct. Too bad CBS News simply looked the other way when Obama’s failed economic ideas were made manifest during the 2008 campaign and chose instead to be part of his propaganda machine.
Longer answer: Yes, but only after it first crashes.
It’s far too late to vote our way out of this. All we can do is prepare for the inevitable train wreck that’s coming.
No way. The most likely way to deal with the debt is to monetize the debt and bring on hyper inflation. The other, less likely result will be a revolution such as occurred in Germany during the Weimer Republic days. We are kaput! Even the Tea Partiers are not willing to cut enough to make any meaningful differences.
It can be saved, but it won’t be. The political system is now too far gone, too corrupt, to allow the changes needed. As those in Rome knew, once the people can rob their neighbors through property and income taxes and vote themselves money from the treasury in the form of “welfare” the nation is doomed to end.
I trust Walter Williams as far as I can throw him. Remember, he is an open borders/Free Trader. Why else would a university hire him?
I don’t think we will be able to fix the country without a crash and rebuilding. We are socially trashed and economically trashed and no one is going to permit it to be fixed because it would be drastic measures away from National and International socialism and it’s destructive multiculturalism.
We tried for a lot of years to fix the messes and liberals worked like termites ten times as hard to destory the country through education, non-profits and institutions even when they did not have power in Washington. They won. They brought down “racist America.”
One major hurdle to saving our country stems from the fact that so many people are now living off of government welfare. We all know people who are on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment, food stamps, etc. A first good step forward will be to means test Social Security and Medicare so that only the truly needy receive it. Any fraud should be met with the severest of penalties.
