D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.
Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.
Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasnt the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or more revenue as he likes to call it. The American public doesnt want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.
If we cant stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.
If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when were running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then were done. Put a fork in us. Were finished. Were going to default eventually and thats why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then lets stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

One half pinged once, the other twice.
It is so nice to see someone in the spot light that “GETS IT”.
I pray that she will do more than be in the spot light. I know that she has supported some strong conservatives (and some not so strong), but we need people like her in power.
Once the government has disarmed us there will be nothing they won’t do and that is precisely why they want to eventually ban guns.
It wasn’t that long ago that our own government rounded up Japanese citizens and put them in camps - anyone who thinks they won’t do the same to dissenters is living in fantasyland.
Zer0 has long ago planned to do nothing when the sequestration deal came up. That’s why the vacations, golf games and non communications with the Republicans. He has planned to do the same political game that Clinton played during the great government shutdown of 1995-96. With the Senate in Democrat control, Zer0 thinks that by doing nothing, he will play the Republicans into losing their control of Congress by whipping up public sentiment against them. All he has to do is trot out a boy scout troop unable to get into Yellowstone because of the sequester. All he has to do is delay some Social Security checks and the elderly voters will be ready to fry some Republicans.
This is not going to go well.
Once this Gov. begins to disarm the American people, the dogs of war will be released, since the gov. will be so far out of control, the only option the American people will have left to them is to fight and return their constitutional gov. to them.
God help us all! It won't be pretty my dear friend!
Its good to hear from Sarah with a frank and honest message.
I am watching Sarah Palin, Rand Paul and others to see what they say and especially what they do in the months ahead.
Its time for dramatic and meaningful action to cut spending and balance the budget. A line must be drawn in the sand that demands an immediate and authentic balanced budget.
BALANCED BUDGET NOW..........
If Palin chooses to support RINO’s like Lindsey Graham in 2014 its hard for me to see how she really wants those words she’s writing to translate into real action.
You see 2014, as a worried point in time? Nextrush, please give good concern, to your present status.
My experience with the government workers in the Mississippi Highway Patrol license and CCW permit facility in New Albany, Mississippi, confirms that if gun confiscation and civil unrest happens, these people will have no second thoughts about turning against the public.
Sez it all.
Yeah, a real pain in the rear. It's embarrassing for the poster. My South Carolina pings usually post at least three times.
Maybe John can take a look at this. (Hint, hint :)
Obama WILL have his death panels...one way or another.
Take a close look at our Canadian friends to the north. Like us, they were facing a difficult time with a strong liberal government but not so much any longer. How did that transition happen? As one of my Canadian friends stated, “A small, quiet rumbling in the west grew into a major storm as the “silent majority” turned into a monumental CONSERVATIVE effort.” (Sounds almost like the Tea Party).
It can be done here in the U.S. as well but not if we stay in so many different trenches and appose those with leadership skills like Palin and others like her. Staying focused, a leader will surface from amongst us and hopefully, we will prevail in taking our country back, like our friends to our north did.
Ny previous post addressed to Upchuck should have been adddressed to “All” Sorry.
