More Stuff to Contemplate about a Government Running Amok

I would have liked to write a post on something other than politics and the economy. However, America is in such serious trouble now that President Obama and the liberal Democrats are in charge, that the people of this country need to stand up and tell them to stop. In his inaugral address, President Obama said it was time to set aside childish things, but he and his cohorts are behaving like children turned loose in a candy store. They are stuffing the so-called stimulus package with their wish lists of social spending instead of anything that will stimulate the economy. What they need to do is scrap this bill and cut taxes. Permanently. That will, as shown by past experience, increase revenues and stimulate the economy to a great extent.

Here are some articles to read that will help you understand what is going on in our government today:

"Shelve the Stimulus" by Lawrence Kudlow

"Help! The Government is Trying to 'Do Something'" by Bobby Eberle

"Unclogging the Liberal Pipeline" by Michael Reagan

"What are They Buying?" by Thomas Sowell

"There is No Santa" by Walter Williams

You could do not better than to read everything you can find by Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. These men know whereof they speak, whether it is about economics or politics or anything else they turn their hands to. They have common sense, good character, and integrity, to mention just a few of the reasons I admire them both so much.

As you read the above articles, notice what the money is going for and how long it will take to get any of it done. We are supposed to be panicked and stampeded into rushing this bill through--a bill that will do nothing to stimulate the economy, which is supposed to be what it is for.

Email your Congresspersons and Senators today and encourage them to put a stop to this foolishness. All they need to do is cut taxes.
