I have to admit, I skipped all the inaugural hype and pageantry. It is well known I am not a fan of this President’s policies, but I also recognize the fact ‘true Americans’ honor our system of elected government. And the truest test of that is dealing with the loss of your side. So I quietly ignored the celebrations by the other side of the battle.
That does not mean we lie down and stop fighting. It means stop complaining and looking for evil in even the vaguest phrase. It means prioritize, pick your battles and never give an inch.
With that said, the biggest fight in front of us is the bankrupting of America. The scariest thing I saw this weekend (besides the attack on lawful gun owners by people surrounded by armed guards I help pay for) was this gem:
During Barack Obama’s first term as president of the United States, the debt of the federal government increased by $5.8 trillion, which exceeds the combined debt accumulated under all presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton.
The new federal debt accumulated in Obama’s first term equaled approximately $50,521 for each of household in the country.
Each family – young or old, empty nests, building nests or full nests – just had $50K added to their generational debt. And by all signs, Team Obama is going to repeat his abysmal record on spending.
So when you see a BMW or Mercedes driving down the road, remember you financed that car for some bigwig, green energy, corporate flim-flam artist. It’s your donation to the Obama Nation, something you and your family cannot afford because the Democrats are spend-drunk and picked your tax paying pocket. Because see you are the well off, middle class and you have not done your fair share.
