It's Not Their Money!

In honor of April 15th - Tax Day.....

Yeah, Mr. Gibbs... We Are Going To Let The Process Work It's Way Through.

It's NOT Their money!

But what we have is a much bigger problem... and here is the REAL Truth about Deficit Spending:
"as we gaze across the federal budget pie, it's pretty obvious that our major expenditures have relatively little to do with long-term investments or capital improvement

More than half of our money is being spent on mandatory entitlement distributions, which simply means money going towards providing basic living expenses and health care. Both are important to the recipients, but these expenditures are centered on current consumption, not long-term prosperity.

The cold economic truth is that we are slowly bankrupting our country. And we are spending our money on things that do not contribute to our collective long-term prosperity."

Massive government spending must be stopped.
Our government has to stop subsidizing other countries.
Our government has to stop subsidizing some failing businesses and punishing others.
Our government has to stop creating dependency.
Our government has to stop micro-managing our lives.
We cannot expect the government to do everything for us and give us everything.

That is NOT what government is supposed to do.

Our government has to stop manufacturing Federal Reserve Notes out of thin air.

We need to be a country that manufactures things here again.
We need to encourage commerce and enterprise - not tax it, control it, or regulate it to death.
We need to be a country of savers.
We need to be a country with sound money.
We need to take responsibility over our own lives.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply or create wealth by dividing it." Dr. Adrian Rogers

Thanks for that quote by Dr. Rogers.

It wasn't made in 1931 - that's the year he was born.

Ironically, it was made in 1984 (You can decide if Orwell or the Reagan era is the irony).

Thanks - mea culpa - I appreciate your fact checking Eric.

I totally agree with this quote from the article:

"We could easily trim defense spending without impacting our economy in the slightest, if we chose to reduce the amount of money we are sending overseas to maintain 700+ foreign military bases and prosecute two wars."

Yeah, those two wars were a big mistake, along with taking jobs out of America. Tough 8 years, that, but oh well, we all have to suffer now, right?
