I have been watching the maneuvering in Washington for the past 6 months with varying degrees of disgust and quite frankly, anger. I was willing to give the new administration a fair chance, but simply cannot any longer pretend that I agree with the increasingly inept and irresponsible actions being wrought by our government.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I did not vote for Mr. Obama and as time goes by, have only had my choice to not endorse the socialization of our country, validated and proved to be correct.
If the overly ambitious, ill-planned and dangerously expensive proposals winding their way through the legislature manage to get approved by Congress, our country and way of life are in severe and immediate danger of disappearing before our very eyes.
In a ray of hope, the outcry from the public via rapidly falling approval rates for Mr. Obama’s “agenda” are starting to seep into politician’s consciousness as they realize they have to face angry constituents and mid-term elections next year.
So, I watch and make my opinions known to those that we have elected to “represent” us. There is no hope of stopping some of this madness if we all, as a nation, sit back and are quiet. There will be no second chance to save our country from this madness and ruin that is charging like an out of control freight train on the horizon, threatening to run us all over.
The following passage has been circulating online. No other words are necessary.
The Congress of the United States is on a spending spree that is astronomical and obscene.
They are putting us in a financial hole we may never get out of.
Our current National Debt is increasing at a rate of one million dollars every ten seconds.
We are squandering our wealth.
We can’t keep spending money we don’t have.
History will likely say this country lived it up –
oblivious and self-indulgent to the bitter end!”
Congress makes us to lie down and drown in red ink.
They lead us into national bankruptcy.
They restore our dependency on the welfare state.
Congress leads us into the path of unfunded entitlements, for their name’s sake.
Yea, though we slouch through the valley of the shadow of financial disaster,
We will fear no evil, for billion dollars bailouts and million dollar bonuses are with us.
Their pork and waste confound us.
Congress prepares a table before us full of deficit spending and trillions of dollars of debt.
They fill our heads with campaign promises.
Their deception and corruption runs over.
Surely, higher taxes and runaway spending will follow us all the days of our lives,
and future generations will dwell in the house of poverty, forever!
