Every time history repeats itself, the price goes up

Citizen Tom:

One thing to keep in mind is that Congress, not the president, controls taxes and spending. So the president is to blame only to the extent he leads his party in pursuit of big government spending programs. Given when the Democrats took over Congress, and the spending spree they went on afterwards, particularly after the Democrats took over the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, there is really little reason to doubt which political party deserves the most blame. However, we the People elected Obama and the Democrats. So ultimately, we have no one to blame except ourselves. Nobody else is wreaking this country. We are doing it. What matters is how do we fix this problem, not who is at fault.

And how do we fix this problem? We stop giving away “other people’s money”.

    I think it’s going to become even more apparent how weak our current President really is and that he has no record to run on at all. This morning, the jobless claims number has increased again. While the White House can go around giving each other “High-Fives” one week, then another week goes by and it’s another story. The economy will teeter-totter between now and the election. It’s just a matter of us proving to those Obama supporters what they’ve actually received from him as a President … which actually amounts to nothing at all. Oh, I’ve realized that I forgot to mention the additiona $5 – $6 Trillion dollars piled onto our national debt.

      That $5 – $6 Trillion has mostly gone to waste. In fact, much of it was just spent in payoffs.

      I don’t know for certain exactly what President Obama is trying to accomplish, but it is apparent he is up to no good. Step by step he and the Democratic Party have laid the groundwork for a tyrant state, and the Republicans have done very little, even when they had the opportunity, to stop them. All we can do is do our best to replace people who would steal our rights with people determined to protect them.
