Growth in federal government threatens our freedoms
Whether hes a one- or two-term president, Barack Obamas legacy will be the ginormous federal government he left behind. Trillion-dollar annual deficits werent enough to make him reconsider the wisdom of his spending sprees.
On Thursday, Mr. Obama laid out his proposal for a third stimulus spending bill that he said he would enact if things go his way Nov. 6. The idea is to spend half the combined cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan so we can put people back to work fixing up roads and bridges. We can expand broadband into rural neighborhoods and make sure our schools are state-of-the-art. The president added in his Green Bay, Wis., remarks that the purpose of the new outlays would be to put Americans back to work doing the work that needs to be done. By that, he means hiring more bureaucrats, his go-to solution to all problems. According to the most recent data from the White House's Office of Personnel Management, the government employment rolls swelled 8 percent from September 2008 to June 2012. These arent your average bureaucrats, either. During the same period, the number of feds taking home salaries of more than $150,000 soared 44 percent.

Barrack Hussein Obama. Unsustainable.
I’m seeing that stupid new word ginormous in more and more places. When giant and enormous aren’t enough to describe something, use a word which is a combination of giant and enormous, I guess.
I hear you, I’m guessing on it too.
For Obama it’s “Ignormous”.
If Romney wins, just firing all the czars will pay for 100,000 miles of new roads.
