Sequestration: We are doomed

Posted by Troy on 13th March 2013 in Political

Sequestration has proved we are doomed, at least if the Democrats stay in power.  Do you realize that by the end of Obama’s term, we will be spending more money than we were last year?  And yet, the Democrats say that this Sequestration is the death of the world.  If we can’t even hold spending steady, we are doomed.  There’s no way around that.

This is on top of the fact that insurance rates are set to increase 20 to 100% in 2014 due to Obamacare.  Thank you Obama for giving everyone healthcare by forcing everyone to buy insurance.  Good one.  Finally, Obama has declared that he will not balance the budget just to have a balanced budget.  That’s insane.  Her’s the trick, and it’s what Washington told us, there is no excuse to use public debt except for in times of war.  That’s it.  I might make an exception for long term capital projects like dams and bridges and roads, but maintenance of this and all other programs must never be funded by debt.  If you do, you have made a recipe for financial ruin.

Long Live the Constitution!

Tough Decisions

Posted by Troy on 13th July 2011 in Current Events, Political

Jay Carney recently said that the politicians need to make the tough decision, own up to their responsibilities, and increase the debt ceiling instead of talking about a balanced budget amendment.  Since when is this the tough decision?  Since when is opting to spend more money than you have considered responsible as opposed to opting to live within your means?

If you had a friend that was deep in debt, and he called you up to tell you that his troubles were over because he just went out and got a Line of Credit from the bank.  Would you congratulate him? 

What a moron.  It’s just empty words to advance their position.

Long Live the Constitution!
