I’ve got to be open with you all about something. Something that up to now I had only shared with the administrators of this site. Last year, I was borderline ready to throw in the proverbial towel.
When the establishment Republicans in both the House of Representatives and the Senate pressured the conservatives in both houses to concede on the raising of the debt limit, I was beyond frustrated. The final straws were John McCain calling us extremist hobbits, and followed two days later by Rep. Allen West calling us “childish”. All because we just wanted them to stop spending. STOP SPENDING. Just. Stop. Spending.
Now we face over $16.4 TRILLION in current deficit and factoring in Social Security and Medicare and our total debt now reaches over $120 TRILLION. That’s $189,000 for every man, woman and child alive today. And when you factor in who is actually working, and who is actually paying taxes it equates to over $567,000 per worker in the United States. Yeah, that’s right.
Each working taxpayer is now on the hook for over half a million dollars each.
Let. That. Sink. In.
Now you want me to swallow Romney.?
Aint. Gonna. Happen. !!
