Our Suicide Pact: Can Someone Please Stop Him?!

Posted by Troy on 19th June 2012 in Current Events, Political

The G20 is meeting.  For those who do not know, the G20 is a meeting of the top 20 economies of the world.  They hash out what they want the world’s economy to do.  Of course, as the world largest economy, we should be trying NOT to have a G20.  Originally, there were only seven economies present, and we were using it as a way to remain top dog.  However, as they add more and more countries, we lose more and more clout.  It’s important to note that there are countries in the G20 that seriously don’t wish us well.  Why are we giving up our sovereignty to these multi-national communities?  Are we stupid?  We must be.

I criticized Obama for being willing to sell out Europe to save his chance for re-election.  That is to say, I believe that he wants Europe to continue deficit spending until they explode because a slowdown in Europe is going to affect our economy too.  Look, I’m not advocating going bust overnight.  If a friend of mine came to me and told me that he was going to go bankrupt tomorrow and lose everything unless he gets another loan, I’m not going to tell him not to get a loan.  However, if he gets that loan, it must also come with a lifestyle change whereby he can get his house in order.  Fine, bail out Greece, but Greece needs to cut stuff to the bone.  However, it would appear that we have a suicide pact with Europe.  Obama doesn’t want them to stop borrowing so he can get re-elected, and they want us to keep binge spending so that their economies recover faster as well.

Obama has used this speech to tout his policies.  He talks about consumer credit protection.  Of course, he doesn’t mention that this included provisions where the government can, without a warrant, obtain a list of what you’ve bought from your credit card company.  He talks about this Trans-Pacific trade agreement, which is just another step towards globalization and is a slap in the face of our national sovereignty.  He mentions being pro-growth, but what he really means is pro-tax and pro-debt spending which empowers evil countries and weakens us.  And of course he referenced his health care bill.

He’s just going to keep going with all this.  What has he done that you actually approve of?  I can’t think of anything (other than killing Osama bin Laden any way).  Can someone please stop him?  If you guys are listening, he has no interest in ever cutting the deficit.  All the things he talked about entailed more and more spending and more and more debt, and we are never going to break free if he gets four more years.

Long Live the Constitution!
