For as long as AWD can remember, Republicans have been the whipping boys of the Democrats. They also have been the enablers to the big spending, huge-government goals of the Dims. This is puzzling. There has never been a greater divide between what the Democrats have become and what traditional Republicans once stood for. Republicans once stood for limited government, greater freedoms for Americans and low taxes. Democrats have become openly socialist while the modern-day Republican Party has become the Party of Tip O’Neill.
Americans returned the Republicans to power in 2010 with a mandate to drastically reduce spending in Washington. Republican leadership promised to cut spending that year by $100 billion. That was $100 billion from a $1.4 trillion deficit. After all the hemming and hawing, the amount of spending cuts the Republicans agreed to was $253 Million (with an M). Or just about the amount Congressional Republicans spend on feminine products annually. I must admit the $253 Million (with an M) is $253 Million (with an M) more than I thought they would cut. That is the level of confidence AWD has in the Grand Ol’ Party of Wussypants.
Speaker of the House and noted tanning expert John ‘Boo-Hoo’ Boehner has fallen all over himself trying to get President Obama to agree to a deal that would keep America from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. Angering some of his caucus in the House and most Tea Party conservatives, Boehner has also agreed to tax increases with NO promise of spending cuts from the Democrats. Talk about leading with your chin! Most sentient Americans will agree this country has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Also, Boehner has even fallen for the Democrat word-play by calling tax increases “revenue.”
This fiscal cliff is not Boehner’s problem. The problem of economic reality falls on the Democrats. Only the wussypants Republicans are too cowardly and/or stupid to position it as such and let the Democrats take their socialist medicine.
Over $6 Trillion (with a T) has been added to the national debt under Barack Obama. Senate Leader DB Harry Reid has not created a budget in 4 years! Yet, the Democrats sit back and chuckle while insulting Boehner with each appeasement he brings to the table. It should be clear to all (even Boehner) at this point….THE DEMOCRATS DO NOT WANT A DEAL!
Americans reelected Obama and added to the Democrat side in the Senate. This shows that Americans are content to continue living on borrowed money. Americans have not been greatly affected to date because they have been living in financial La-La Land. Sure, there’s a lot of people without jobs but financial reality has yet to really set in. America is like a bunch of Hurricane Katrina refugees who were given FEMA debit cards. Oh sure, it was a big party! For a while. Limos, strip joints, bling…but soon it was back to the Section 8 apartments broke and dependent on working people.
The 2012 election shows one thing. Too many Americans are nothing more than Hurricane Katrina moochers who don’t care about the fiscal condition of our country. Why should they? After all, it’s not THEIR money! Just keep printing and borrowing and keep those Hummer limos lined up.
Americans need to learn that elections do have consequences. They also need to be reminded there are limits to fiscal irresponsibility. Eventually the credit is cut off. Americans need to learn that wealth must be created through brains and labor and not from printing presses. And Americans must stop putting trillions of dollars each year on the credit cards of future generations.
So what should those rounded-shoulder fellows in the wussypants Republican Party in Washington do? Simple! Do like they’ve always done. Increase the debt limit and increase every spending bill the Democrats throw their way. Oh, even throw in some tax increases on those evil people who still have jobs! Making everyone poor will make everyone happy, right? WRONG, WUSSY BOYS!
What the Republicans should do is…NOTHING! They should not offer to raise taxes, increase the debt limit, or even vote on any other bill in the House or the Senate until the Democrats come to the table with some major…and I mean MAJOR…spending cuts. Not spending cuts in ten years that will never happen. I’m talking about big Rosie O’Donnell ass-sized, industrial-strength, major-league spending cuts that take place NOW! If the Democrats are not willing to show a grain of fiscal responsibility, the Republicans must shut the whole thing down! Shut Washington down!
Let those who voted for Obama see what it’s like when those EBT cards and welfare checks don’t appear magically in their mailbox. Let them see how much the Democrats really care about the people. Teach them that wealth is created through sacrifice and labor and that responsible people who work will be rewarded. For once, let the lazy, ignorant, and worthless know what it is to go without. No more ObamaPhones for morons!
America must return to the principles that once made us great if it is to survive. Welfare and big-government deficit spending are not included in those principles. Producers must be rewarded and encouraged to produce more by allowing them to keep the vast lions share of their earnings. Moochers must be allowed to produce or starve. Yes, I know that sounds harsh. When it comes to welfare-sucking moochers, AWD’s “Give A @#&*” meter red-lined a long time ago. I know I’m not alone.
One thing we have learned is Washington cannot NOT spend money! They should be given no more.
This country can start paying our way right now or face collapse in the near future. If Washington does not address the former, the latter will surely come. This is the last chance for the wussypants Republicans to do something right, for once. And the right thing to do is NOTHING!
