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”.
Words From The Past
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. -- Benjamin Franklin (from here)
