Part Four: The Industrious American
Part Four: THE INDUSTRIOUS AMERICAN WATCH YOUR WALLET
Yes, there is a powerful group of elitist running amok in this country today. The true statist among them, the controlling elites, are a small part of the 19%, but oh can they kick up a storm. They will never be persuaded to change. They have to be defeated at the ballot box. They live to control others. This is why they promise so many things. For example, Pres. Obama said there was to be no more "pork,” no more earmarks, but in his first major piece of legislation (the Stimulus Bill) there were over 9,000 pork, spending projects. Then Billions more to bribe Senators and Congressmen to vote for it. Most of this went to city and state governments so they could reward and pay their government employee unions. This is stimulus to liberals. Name me one job that was stimulated?
- They love control, and they have found a willing accomplice in the unions.
- They have now proposed that for a company to be unionized they only need a majority of those voting, not a majority of all employees.
- Democrats covet American Pensions. They are now proposing to take your retirement savings and replace it with a promise. Your retirement account has a bull's eye on it. Watch out IRAs, 401Ks and Pension Plans. "They will tell you that they are investing your money . . . but they will use the money immediately to pay for their unprecedented trillion-dollar budget deficit, leaving nothing to back up their political promises, just as they have raided the Social security Trust Fund."—(Newt Gingrich
- They are piling more debt, and driving our economy further and further away from sound financial policies.
- Then we have the audacity to tell hurting European countries what to do. "It might strike you as strange that the EU would take advice from a country that now runs a deficit of 10% of GDP and whose total debt is verging on 90% of GDP—both of which would DISQUALIFY the US from membership in the EU." (Investor's Business Daily)
- Also from IBD: "Rather than give more poor advice, maybe the US should listen. Instead of more bailouts, printed money and government coercion, we should return to free-market ideals.
- And let's lower taxes. Why? To stimulate growth.
