To The Daily Sun,
Readers, step back and reflect for a moment about your government, how well it works for you, or how well it doesn't.
Over the past half century government has tripled its power and increased its arrogance, threatening states rights as it bribes them to do its bidding. Medicaid and Obamacare are simply the latest example of federalized corruption and coercion of the states.
Government says, " I will hand you this big bag of money as bribery today to take the less fortunate off our hands. Then I will laugh tomorrow when these folks drown your state budgets in a perpetual river of red ink, requiring massive, on-going, tax increases and service cuts to pay the tab. Federal corruption has one effect. It dilutes middle class living standards. It isn't the rich that are impoverishing Main street, it is government bullying states into pay the staggering sums required to tend the less fortunate.
Unlike government, states don't have the power to print money. Unlike government, states can't roll up $17 trillion in credit card debt to satisfy the endless whims and whines of the Democratic Party. The states must balance their budgets annually. State sovereignty as envisioned by our our founders has been shredded by Democratic Party. We have become the United STATE of America under Barack Obama, while he skirts the protections divided government assures with executive orders because he can't rally support for his views.
Our ancestors left England from utter frustration their individual freedoms and spiritual beliefs were being crushed. Obama and the Democrats really don't care about churchgoers' thoughts on paying for or supplying contraception are, or any other beliefs of churchgoers if it conflicts with the liberal agenda. The Catholic Church finds itself forever in court trying to defend itself from the force of government. Obama says, "I am king in my 'state.' You will genuflect to me. If you make heaven you can kneel to God there."
Watching governments ever increasing encroachment on personal rights should be a cautionary tale to every American whose love and appreciation for freedom still lives in their heart and mind.
How hollow the words of FDR, JFK, LBJ and Obama have been.
The bigger, more arrogant, more infringing, more controlling government all these men so loudly championed for the last 75 years has become synonymous today with record levels of welfare dependence, record health care dependence, record national debt, bankrupt social programs as far as the eye can see, including Medicare, Social Security and disability, bankrupt infrastructure programs like the highway trust fund, a bankrupt postal system.
Meanwhile, the IRS just reported 9 million people hung up on that agency this year because no one would answer the phone there. The previous year the IRS stonewalled requests for tax-free tax status applications to people interested in opposing Obama. The head of the agency quit rather than answer questions before Congress, under oath.
Last summer it was the VA hospital administrators lying about wait times across the country to qualify to qualify for huge government employee bonuses. This is a level of total incompetence and arrogance seen no other place in America, except government. Government is the three stooges of management. You want another Marx Brothers health care roll-out plus or minus a few hundred million tax payer dollars?
The conundrum liberals and Democrats can't accept is the lofty ideals of socialism fail so often and in so many places — Greece being just the latest, while capitalism, founded on greed, performs so spectacularly, delivering goods around the globe at the lowest possible prices with leading edge technology, dependably 24/7.
Insanity has a new definition. Success is now defined by Democrats like Bernadette Loesch as every American hog-tied (I guess the proper phrase would be, donkey-tied) to subsidies from government totally dependent on it for food, housing, health care, and of course free education — not for 12 years, but for 16, let's throw four years of college for free, too. Success by her measure is ever more millions of people dependent on their neighbor across the street, across town, or across the country to live.
When every American is 100 percent dependent on government Bernadette will shout her ideas have hit 100 percent success. Have you ever read anything so absolutely devoid of common sense and logic in your life? This is what "crazy" really looks like, This is how cities, states and even countries go bankrupt, just like the Greeks did ,who scream the same "nut case" socialist propaganda Bernadette does.
"When socialism and Democrats free their first person from the pain of poverty, without harming 20 others, lightning and time will have both been put in a bottle."
