No New Debt. No New Spending. No New Taxes July 18th, 2014

Reagan’s thousand years of darkness was not a joke. It has been the normal state of human existence for thousands of years. The United States is the exception and Regan tried to tell us how easy it would be to lose. Only we aren’t exactly losing it, we’re spending it.

In 1974 3 percent of retiring Congressmen became lobbyists. Today 50 percent of Senators and 42 percent of Congressmen become lobbyists when they leave office. Half of our wages are confiscated by the government and routed through Washington to any company, organization or country who can afford the influence.

The only answer the government has, whatever the problem, is to spend money. President Obama’s response to the border crisis is to spend 3.7 billion dollars, not to stop them from coming, to deal with them when they get here. Congress is fighting over who gets to spend it.

The solution to our immigration problem is obvious, and it’s the opposite of throwing more money at it. If this were not a welfare state, if everyone who came here had to work to eat, and had to show documentation to work, we wouldn’t need a fence or another 3.7 billion dollars.

In 2008 G.W. Bush tried to fix “Too big to fail” with a 700 billion dollar bank bailout. The banks doubled in size and the economy contracted. In 2009 Obama tried to fix the economy with an 800 billion dollar stimulus package. Five years later there are fewer Americans working and more on welfare.

The V.A. is a bureaucracy that stands between veterans who need care and the people who provide care. When it didn’t work, our government’s solution was to increase its budget by 18 billion dollars. They should have cut its budget, by 100 percent, closed the V.A., fired everybody who works there, sold all of its assets and given veterans an insurance card so they can shop for care anywhere they wanted.

The IRS claims that there troubles were caused by a lack of funding. They want a 1.2 billion dollar budget increase, and they will get it because that’s the only solution Congress knows, no matter what the problem. Spend more money, which in almost every case, is what caused the problem in the first place.

The poorest American is still wealthier than most of the rest of the world, but that is changing fast. In another generation there will be nothing special about the United States. The only way to stop it is for we the people to just say NO. No new debt. No new spending. No new taxes. Those three lines should be the extent of the Republican Party Platform. They should be the litmus test for our nominee, and they should be on every bumper of every freedom loving American.

Join Dale for a daily prayer



Join Dale for a daily prayer at the beginning of Down on the Corner each weekday morning at 7:06.  We are proud to open our local programming with a prayer, as we recall 2 Chronicles 7:14, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Special thanks to Baxter County Right to Life for providing the airtime each day for the morning prayer.
