Ann Barnhardt wrote this. I think she said it very well.


I stand here in abject stupefaction. The so-called "right" or "Tea Party" in this republic is being so thoroughly rolled and defeated that I am struggling to come up with an adequate violent submission metaphor that does not involve prison rape . . . and they honesty think that they're "winning." Really? You call this winning?

•- Obama gets over $2 Trillion to spend before the 2012 election
•- There are no real spending cuts
•- There is a massive tax increase effective January 1, 2013
Obama is going to be handed something in excess of $2 Trillion -- and he has made it perfectly clear that he will spend every penny of it before the November 2012 election. That's why he kept saying, " . . . so we don't have to do this again", meaning raise the debt ceiling again. The debt ceiling would only need to be raised if all of the money had been spent. Therefore, he has stated very clearly that he will spend every penny of any debt ceiling increase. He is going to burn through $2 Trillion-plus in the next sixteen months. This was the Obama regime's plan from day one. Geithner appeared before Congress in early May and told them this in no uncertain terms. This outcome has been a known quantity all along.

There are no spending cuts in this plan. It is all accounting fraud. Saying that you are not going to spend money in Afghanistan ten years from now is not spending cuts. Even if you accept the $1 Trillion in cuts over ten years propaganda, that is only $100 Billion per year, which is essentially meaningless relative to the size of the problem. Furthermore, even a miniscule uptick in interest rates, which given the massive debasement of our currency is now a mathematical certainty, will completely consume that $100 Billion per year. It's all a joke.


Oh, wait! There is more.


Have you also forgotten the so-called "Bush tax cuts"? Yeah. Those rates are going to expire on January 1, 2013. Obama will presumably still be occupying the Oval Office at that time assuming that he is not forcibly removed or that the Republic is still intact at that time. Taxes will increase significantly at that point, and the Congressional Budget Office has scored everything put before them given the fact of the massive tax increases on 1/1/2013. Do you understand that? When these Republicans and even these so-called "Tea Party Freshmen" tell you that there are no tax hikes in their "plan," they are consciously, willfully, knowingly lying to you through their teeth.


And still more. . . . .


The Obama regime is not a failure. The Obama regime is not incompetent. The Obama regime has achieved more in two and a half years than anyone could have possibly foreseen. It has debased the currency by 50% of the GDP and guaranteed that our economy will collapse. It has looted the Treasury for more than the size of a top-ten economy and embezzled that wealth into the hands of their fellow Marxists in preparation for the final collapse of the United States. It has ground the economy of the United States to a screeching halt. It has destabilized the entire Muslim world and ensured that there will be a nuclear war centered around Israel within the decade.

The Obama regime has no interest whatsoever in "stimulus" or "getting folks back to work." How can you not understand this? How can we possibly win this war if we refuse to come to terms with the fact that we are in fact fighting a war.

God save the United States of America, because the people are far too stupid to do it themselves.

This may be just another persons opinion, but I find it very accurate and articulate and to the point.
Enjoy the read and have a great day/night where ever you may be living.

Shackling future generations with monstrous debt and liabilities is the exact same thing as selling them into tax slavery. Somehow selling our children into debt/tax slavery is a more acceptable outcome than having to deal with the harsh reality of the present situation. We will be worn down by taxes until we are dependent and helpless.That is how I see it.

I'm not going to blame one party over the other or call people names. I will offer a solution.



If a thousand honest men were not to pay their tax this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the state to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the only definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible.

As for adopting the ways of the State has provided for remedying the evil, I know not of such ways. They take too much time, and a man's life will be gone. Statesmen and legislators, standing so completely within the institution, never distinctly and nakedly behold it. They speak of moving society, but have no resting-place without it.

When I meet a government which says to me, "Your money or your life, " why should I be in haste to give it my money? The state is not armed with superior wit or honesty, but with superior physical strength. I was not born to be forced. I will breathe after my own fashion. Let us see who is the strongest. But we love better to talk about it: that we say is our mission. Thus men will lie on their backs, talking about the fall of man, and never make an effort to get up. -Henry Thoreau, Concord, 1849


Let us all endeavor not to lend ourselves to the wrongs which we condemn. Hoping and wishing that DC will be responsible with our money and the well being of our posterity is frivolous. They have proven they cannot be responsible! If we really demand responsibility, then it begins with your wallet and mine; Not in DC. You won't even have to get off your couch. It's really quite simple.

The legacy of Democrats and Republicans approaches: Libertarianism by bankruptcy.

Emotions are much easier than logic, aren't they? The party "you" believe in tells you exactly what you want to hear. It's a positive feedback loop, and it takes hardly any energy to get into it. After that, it becomes the group mentality. I'm right and everyone else is wrong. Arguments devolve into little more than self-justification and childish name calling.

Good luck with that

Just for you, I hope Palin (or Bachmann) becomes president and gets her face on the new Tea Party Dollar.

Why January 2013?
Now I would NEVER vote for anyone that pushed some hard thing to right when he leaves office - because he knows he's going to be leaving office as a one term president, obviously, OR he knows that if he gets a 2nd term, he won't care any longer.

I hope he doesn't get a 2nd term. I hope very few of them do, to be honest, no matter what the party.

Once this bill gets known, too many republicans are going to get the boot. And for reason! Dems? Not so much, it's what they do.
