Today I feel like ranting and I’ll apologize in advance for this stream of consciousness that borders on schizophrenia.
If Greece is not a wakeup call against this march toward socialism—led by Obama—then perhaps the failure of California will setoff the fire alarm. And fail it will, unless rescued by the federal government…i.e., you and me. As in all the liberal states, most notable; California, New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, they have both given it away and taken it away. It has been done with laws that give more power to the government, under the guise of fairness, while taking choice, money, and freedom from the people. The best metaphor is adding water (printing money) to a pot of soup because you have extra guests coming to dinner. Life is not fair and you can’t create utopia through government policy.
We have lost our way and we are losing the American culture. We need to change course. Because of intrusion by government into small business (mom and pop size) we have seen a decline in a sector that used to be the heart of America. I know from experience in running a business…government is not your friend and punitive taxes have chased companies out of many areas. Detroit is a good example; I know, I lived there. Many liberals think they are doing the right thing. I hate to be the bearer of bad news…it’s not working. Government has become a huge steamroller; flattening things out and spending [sic] it around. I know of a retired person with a net worth of nearly one million dollars living in an expensive beach community that received a stimulus check for $250. He pays no taxes, income or property tax. This is not an isolated incidence and this anecdotal story can be multiplied by thousands. While people are living on the streets the government is sending checks to millionaires.
My point is; fairness is nearly impossible to achieve. But that doesn’t stop the government’s socialist direction and watering down the soup. There is work to be done and it can begin by ousting any and all career politicians. The insanity has to come to an end. I’m thinking about term limits again, and if you have read a few of my blogs you know I’m talking about guys like Crist and Bill Nelson.
I will not tire in my pursuit of returning this country to the rightful owners; the American people. Red Dog, out…
