Obamas Debt Default is on His Shoulders While We Shoulder His Impeachable Offenses
Apparently the president thinks he can furlough reality when talking about the debt limit. To suggest that raising the debt limit doesnt incur more debt is laughably absurd. The very reason why you raise the debt limit is so that you can incur more debt. Otherwise whats the point?
Its also shameful to see him scaremongering the markets with his talk of default. There is no way we can default if we follow the Constitution. The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 4, requires that we service our debt first. We currently collect more than enough tax revenue to service our debt if we do that first. However, we dont have enough money to continue to finance our ever-growing federal government (with our $17 trillion dollar national debt that has increased over 50% since Obama took office). Thats why President Obama wants to increase the debt limit. He doesnt want to make the tough decisions to rein in government spending. So, hes scaremongering the markets about default, just as he tries to scaremonger our senior citizens about their Social Security, which, by the way, is funded by the Social Security Trust Fund and is solvent through 2038.
Its time for the president to be honest with the American people for a change. Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense. A default would also be a shameful lack of leadership, just as mindlessly increasing our debt without trying to rein in spending is a betrayal of our children and grandchildren who will be stuck with the bill.

If only the GOP leaders would preach this same argument.....ASAP.
God bless Palin.
Anyone with a “charge” account knows what it means when the bank or other entity says, “We have increased your credit limit to $XXXX.XX!” It means, basically, “Go out and spend more, so you can make bigger payments so we can charge you more interest and have you hooked in perpetuity!”
Raise the debt ceiling my achin’ backside...He can’t be overdrawn: he still has checks left!
I love that PIC!!! Two of my favorite people!
What she said x 2.
The person thought to be the last-known Confederate widow, Alberta Martin, was born Dec, 4, 1906, and died at age 97 in Alabama on May 31, 2004. In 1927, at age 21, she married William Jasper Martin, then 81. Martin joined the Confederate army in May 1864. Upon her husband’s death, she married his grandson from his first marriage.
The publicity surrounding Alberta Martin’s death prompted relatives of Maudie Celia Hopkins of Arkansas to reveal that the 89-year-old was in fact the last civil war widow. Hopkins married 86-year-old William Cantrell on Feb. 2, 1934, when she was 19. She did so to escape poverty, but kept quiet about the unusual marriage, I thought people would gossip about it. Cantrell, who served in the Virginia Infantry, supported her with his Confederate pension of $25 every two or three months until his death in 1937. Hopkins has outlived three other husbands.

The reality is, Dick Nixon was impeached and threatened with removal for FAR LESS than the Kenyan usurper Barry Soetoro has already gotten away with.....
Yes I know the Senate will never convict Obama - that in and of itself shouldn't stop the House from doing its job!!!
America took a furlough from reality when it voted for an unaccomplished Harvard Law grad turned community agitator, twice.
Isn’t the “full faith” verbiage in Article IV § 1 ...
Nevertheless, I must say that I agree with Milton Friedman. Yes, of course, we must elect the best and the brightest. But the answer ultimately isn't in the virtues of those we are able to elect, because the political tide invariably ebbs and flows. We get a Ronald Reagan and before long we get Clintons and Bushes. The answer is the American People insisting on laws that LIMIT GOVERNMENT and make it UNPROFITABLE for politicians, good or bad, to do the wrong thing by kicking them out when they do the wrong thing, usurp their authority, and steal from the American People. And LIMITING TAXES is the ONLY WAY to cut and limit government.
This requires diligence especially in this day and age and I'm not sure the American People are up to the challenge, which is really the challenge of running the country that belongs to them. Yes, we try to elect the best and brightest, but we don't go back to sleep, but are, in Jefferson's words, "eternally vigilant" and KICK THE BUMS OUT when they start their INEVITABLE USURPATION of their Constitutional powers and encroachments on our freedoms financed by their encroachments on our money.
There's ultimately only one language politicians understand and that's the DEMONSTRATED threat of being thrown out on their ear for power & money grabbing. This comports with the reality that there will always be crooked politicians, but their harm will be minimized. In that sense, the American People, more than the Sarah Palins of the world, hold the future of our country in their hands by insisting on the Constitutional rule of law and limited government. The government, once again, must fear the people, not visa-versa.
LEADERS OF A FEATHER
The answer is demanding TAX CUTS. As Milton Friedman points out, the politicians will ALWAYS spend more than they get and should be kicked out of office for doing so. Getting and keeping taxes low will lower the level of their mischief and will allow our country to thrive economy.
We need many more queens (and kings) of the obvious.
