Something To Think About August 1st, 2014

If Obama’s oath of office means anything, following the law is part of his job. But it would be a lot more effective if House Republicans would do their own job and stop funding his policies instead of suing him for not doing his. Congress has the power of “our” purse, a power that has been abused for far too long.

The President believes that he can create jobs with government spending. Congress, ignoring that any jobs created by government just consumes more wealth, keeps giving him all he asks for. All governments consume wealth. Everything a government does, even the things we want it to do, is consumption. It can’t create anything.

The same Republicans who are suing the President have presided over wasting billions of dollars including money that paid for the things they supposedly don’t think Obama should be doing. When the government wastes money, it is money that has been taken from someone who earned it and via some form of corruption, given to someone who didn’t.

The people on the receiving end of this deal become more powerful the more they receive and the more powerful they become the more they are able to take. It is a self perpetuating system and it all has to be paid for by those who work, because work is still the only way to produce wealth.

If we had a balanced budget they would consume this year, what we produce this year. Instead they are consuming half of everything we are producing today, and 2.32 billion dollars per day of what we will produce tomorrow. Nobody in their right mind believes that this will lead to a wealthier middle class tomorrow. It is however leading to a very wealthy pool of powerful people in and around Washington DC.

Governments grow because politicians crave power. Creating jobs is the last thing on their minds, so the fact that government can’t create a single job doesn’t really concern them. Their objective is control. Because of free enterprise, the American middle class was once the richest middle class in the world, too great a temptation for people who have the power to take it.

They can no longer depend on a wealthy middle class for their spoils. Now they need masses of lower middle class and working poor. I’ve always thought that was why our borders have been so purposely porous, but the more cynical side of me wonders if they might have another motive.

Our government is welcoming 10’s of thousands of people from countries who don’t regularly vaccinate their citizens. Could they be setting up an excuse for the ultimate power grab?

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.
