Why This Election Matters, And Why The Dems Are Being Sent Packing

Published by at 2:37 pm under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions

I was sent two charts that really explain why this election is important and why the Democrats are being fired by the American people. The first chart shows who it was who was ‘stimulated’ by all the massive deficits racked up by the Democrats in 2 short years (ama$$ing $% trillion dollars!) (click to enlarge):

The source and back story can be found here.

All that reckless spending and the majority of Americans (those not working for the government) paid the price with their jobs, lives and families. It is this elitist crap – taking our hard earned money and feathering their lazy-arse beds – that created the Tea Party and the backlash now cocked and ready to hammer DC. The only growth in jobs is in federal jobs – again this is done by taking our money away from us.

The second chart shows that these jobs are not just temporary census jobs paying minimum wage (click to enlarge:

Back story here.

It is criminal to take money from hard working Americans and stuff it in the pockets of bureaucrats who claim the money is going to the needy. Now we know why $5 trillion dollars later we still have a rotten economy and no hope in site. But change is coming!

This is why America is rising up in anger. This is why this is a libertarian revolt. This is why America no longer trusts or wants big government.

    Well, those charts just cream the obvious. Now who in Washington is actually paying attention. It doesn’t get anymore spelled out than that.

    So should the GOP let many public employees go and reduce their benefits while bypassing the unions? The stimulus bills should reach their EOL as soon as possible.

    It drives me crazy that no one talks about the efficiency of the dollar spent. Everyone pretends that one dollar spent in Government is equal to another dollar spent in private enterprise. These graphs show just how inefficient Government is. And that’s not including the damage a Government job does to the same job found in private enterprise – damage done through regulation, litigation, and shakedown.

    As I said a couple days ago, we need to get rid of GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES. with few exceptions, law enforcement and national defense, for example. Everything else that comes to mind can be done for less money through private companies.

    Government employess will be paid for the rest of their life by taxpayers.

    The Germans have figured out that the Keynsian “multiplier effect” is bunk. Instead of a dollar spent by the govt transforming to more than a dollar in economic activity, the Germans found out that dollar becomes something LESS – about 60 cents, actually. Read about that bunch of racists:

    “Now who in Washington is actually paying attention.”

    I’d say just about everyone in *Washington* has been paying attention to this, because that’s where all the money is going and they’re the ones who are getting all of it.

    What has them horrified is that finally the *Rest* of the country is starting to pay attention too!

    A picture is worth a thousand words. That graph says it all.

  9. [...] After blowing all this money on failed stimulus spending, failed bailouts of Wall Street and all sorts of other failed liberal policies the economy is shell shocked from the mortgage mess, the massive new debt and the pending mountain of new regulations (e.g., health care). The answer from the left to all this – more taxes. More stealing our hard earned (and dwindling) money. More screw ups and waste while they live high on the hog. [...]
