I am a registered Democrat, however, I do not feel that the Democratic party or the Republican party represent me in congress. I am tired of bigger government, more spending and representatives that do not listen to us.
It is definitely time for meaningful change. Check out the Libertarian party. More Freedom, Less Government
check them out here: LP.org
What has our government done to our country? Do you trust the Repbulican and Democrat parties? People need to start looking at a third party choice otherwise our country will continue to go to hell quickly while the Dems and Repubs care only about dissing each other and winning. None of them give a shit about us. The things they do cost us billions and does little if anything. Here are some headlines (links included in the headline) just from recent events in our country regarding our illustrious do nothing but make money at our expense leaders. After the $912 billion price tag for the latest health reform bill, it is expected to only cover 2 percent of those without insurance and those on welfare will have expanded benefits, meaning more free rides by ambulance to the hospital at our expense. I am so sick of politics as usual in Washington. We need a change that both major parties cannot provide us. Please, consider voting for someone other than the status quo in the next election or we may not have a country left or maybe will have one with the flag of China flying over us. Save the stars and stripes before it’s too late.
Check our these headlines and give some serious thought to what is going on in our country today and over the last decade. I for one am tired of Washington greed.
I read this article and thought it interesting and most of it right on regarding Obama including his “shovel-ready” stimulus/pork project. I wanted to share it. I only wish that there was another recognized party in my state that I could join other than democrat or republican. I’m sick and tired of both.
Obama’s other growing deficit
By Ralph R. Reiland Monday, August 24, 2009
What we’re seeing with President Obama’s plummeting poll numbers is a quick case of buyer’s remorse.
More broadly, Gallup reports that conservatives now outnumber liberals in all 50 states, with more Americans self-identifying themselves as conservative than at any time in the past four years.
Gallup surveys from January 2009 — the month of Obama’s inauguration — through June 2009 show that 40 percent of respondents described themselves as conservative: 31 percent “conservative” and 9 percent “very conservative.”
Only 21 percent of respondents described themselves as liberal: 16 percent “liberal” and 5 percent “very liberal.”
That 2-to-1 margin is big news even if The New York Times doesn’t see it as newsworthy. Or to rephrase an old question, if liberalism crashes to the ground and The Times doesn’t report it, does that mean it didn’t happen?
“You know this is important polling news because the establishment media is pretending it doesn’t exist,” wrote Tom Blumer in The Wall Street Journal. “You can’t find a relevant reference to it in searches on ‘Gallup’ at The New York Times, AP.org, The Washington Post or the LA Times.”
What went wrong for Obama is everything.
It started with the almost $800 billion nonstimulating stimulus bill, overstuffed with pork by congressional Democrats. The idea was to give a fast “jolt” to the economy, speedily create millions of jobs, and quickly end the hardships of the unemployed. So important was the speed that legislators didn’t even take time to read the bill.
Now, half a year after the rushed enactment of the Democrats’ idea of “shovel-ready” stimulation, 90 percent of the money is still stuck in the political pipeline, waiting for politicians to decide which pothole to fix or which nephew to hire, and 3 million more jobs have been lost.
In the latest USA Today/Gallup survey, the majority of respondents say the stimulus package is having no impact on the economy or making it worse.
What would have worked better and faster at getting people back to work is a cut in personal income taxes — personal consumption expenditures account for most of the spending and job creation in the U.S. economy — and tax cuts for small business, the sector that has produced 60 percent to 80 percent of the new jobs per year in the American economy over the past decade.
Instead we got billions in slow-moving pork, more bailouts for bloated state governments and calls from Obama for higher taxes and more federal mandates on businesses that are already struggling to maintain their current levels of employment. Plus Obama’s push for card check: i.e., unionism without elections so a grievance chairman and victimology adviser could be assigned to watch over any entrepreneurial type who still has a semblance of self-reliance and independence in his soul.
Then came Obama’s record-smashing federal budget with a deficit now projected at $1.85 trillion — four times larger than George W. Bush’s largest deficit. Plus another trillion or so in projected costs for Obama’s cap-and-trade scheme in order to slow down the “crisis” of global warming, disregarding the fact that things have been cooling down for a decade.
Add the trillions we’re on the hook for in the Troubled Asset Relief Program and the Congressional Budget Office’s estimated price of $1 trillion-plus for Obama’s health reform plan over the next decade. It looks like we’re going to be floating on a massive flood of red ink into a full state of peonage.
Or as Investor’s Business Daily recently put it: “Eventually, the total take by government at all levels will be well over 50 percent of GDP — enough to sink the U.S. economy into a state of semi-permanent stagnation, a socialist stupor.”
And what about the kids and Grandma in this collectivist utopia? There won’t be as many.
Obama’s new science czar, John Holdren, has written that “compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” Just put people like Sonia Sotomayor on the Supreme Court, the historic figure who couldn’t see anything wrong with throwing out employment tests when too many white guys score at the top.
As for Grandma, Obama health adviser Ezekiel Emanuel, Harvard-produced bioethicist and brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, explained the “shovel-ready” final solution: No medical treatments for anyone falling short in their role as “participating citizens.”
