Conned again

Rush Limbaugh says: "Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country."
Why? Polls show high approval for President Obama and people blaming the GOP for the panic Obama manufactured over the sequester.
The sequester would mean precisely this: The federal government would spend more next year than this year. It would merely spend 5 percent less than politicians want to spend.
In other words, the government could do everything it is doing now.
Yet, the president paints a picture of children in the streets with begging bowls, crying for food, if Congress allows his sequester plan to take place.
The GOP-controlled House has passed a plan to avoid sequester. But the Democrat Senate won't pass it and the president would not sign it.
Government by continuing crisis is working, as is the plan to tear down America.
By the time people wake up, if ever, it will be too late.
It is a lot like being a citizen of Rome in 410 A.D., when the city was sacked by barbarians. Within a generation, the empire was dissolved.

Lunacy at the top

President Obama's new line -- we can't cut our way to prosperity -- is meant to be a twist on the conservative staple that you can't tax your way to prosperity.
However, there is a slight difference. One is true and one is not.
Taxing -- taking money from the productive part of the economy and allowing politicians to "spread it around a bit" has not ever produced prosperity and never will.
On the other hand, the $5 trillion in spending added during the past six years Democrats have been in control has done nothing beneficial.
Think about it. None of that money was being spent six years ago and yet we were a healthy, happy, hale and hearty nation. The debt was worrisome but manageable -- if we had just frozen spending, without making cuts.
Obama has abandoned the pose of being a moderate and now is openly pushing to create a welfare state that will dwarf those in socialist countries.
Regardless what we can't do, what we can do is tax and spend our way to bankruptcy.
