Biblical wise man Solomon mused that “there was nothing new under the
sun”. Substitute “America” for “Rome” and you see this exemplified in Cicero’s
two thousand year old observation, ... "The budget should be balanced; the
Treasury refilled, public debt reduced, the arrogance of officialdom tempered
(and) people must learn to work and not depend on public assistance...lest Rome
Cicero regarded living fat, easy and unearned as dangerous and alien to
Rome’s way’s and glory. Similarly, author and University of Illinois Urbana
emeritus Professor of political science Robert Weissberg recently wrote that the
present administration represents “strangers in our midst”
Washington political theatre and policy positions of many of its power
players give credence to Dr Weissberg’s allusion that “a uniquely foreign
occupying force...slowly and significantly (is) changing our future.”
Commentator Dennis Prager rightly states, “The bigger the government,
the smaller the citizen”. It appears these aliens in America are intent on
systematically shrinking every citizen’s stature.
Furthermore, there are ominous signs alien leadership regard what could
soon be petite sized patriots as citizens of some mythical world order first and
America, an irrelevant second. No wonder “Tea Parties” resurrected as once
before there grew strangers in our midst.
They practice failed inappropriate alien economics based on notions foreign
to American success and freedom.
In a couple decades, most government spending will be entitlements
without a tax base to support it. They will try to raise taxes. The June issue of The
American Economic Review cites the authoritative work of renowned Ivy League
academics, the Romers’, and states “... a tax increase of 1 percent of GDP
(significantly) reduces output over the next three years by nearly 3 percent” One
step forward, three back.
The over the horizon insolvency of Social Security and Medicare is $106.8
trillion. Add to it the cost of arrogant alien imposed cap and trade legislation and
the unconstitutional tax of Obamacare and the American dream turns alien
Stimulus by alien deficit spending of this manner and selective constituency
rebates fails. No nation can tax and spend to sustainable prosperity. Economist
Keynes is dead, let him rest.
Government has no business of being in the business of business. An
immobilized shocked economy has “taken to the mattresses” aghast at the extent
of government incursion into their lives; fearful and mistrustful as trillions of their
dollars sit on the sidelines.
Alien amnesias tempt us. We forget that Presidents Reagan and Obama
experienced comparable recessions and unemployment. Reagan broadly and
wisely cut taxes and spending. In 1992 Ross Perot won 19% of the Presidential
vote running on the horror of a deficit 4.7% of GDP. Now, outlays as a share of
GDP are rising above 25% for the first time since World War II as revenues fall to
But oh my, how good fat tastes; as it kills.
Alien avarice is spreading. Recent research confirms Federal employees
receive about 22% higher pay, three and half times more benefits and more job
security when compared to private sector counterparts. Taxpayers pay for these
and the two hundred thousand jobs the alien’s non recovery has added to federal
employee ranks. Beware, aliens breed and they are in local and state government
Congress must make the “Bush” tax cuts permanent, eliminate taxes on
capital formation and investment and legislate encouragement of small business,
individual investors and entrepreneurs. Austerity, coupled with economic
stimulation by removing the alien impediments, is essential.
Citizens must get informed and vote before these thinly costumed star
spangled bandits next market an “Etch a Sketch” Constitution.
There are strangers in our midst who have seized or assumed powers and
position never intended. Pending political winds, it can get worse. Alien
infestation has immobilized America. Nov 8th is day one of a big dose of
