Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

One Year Anniversary of Stimulus--A Day of National Mourning.

The anniversary of the so-called Stimulus plan should be recognized and remembered as you would the death of a close friend or family member as this “plan” has done more to damage and destroy the United States economy since the failed big spending of FDR in the 1930’s.
King Barry is taking to the airways today and sending out his fellow Marxist minions like the the silver haired gorilla Janet Napolitano (aka Big Sister) and baby killer advocate Kathleen Sebelius along with the walking gaffe master, Sheriff Joe Biden touting the success of this disaster.

On second thought, let me actually disagree with my fellow Conservative patriots out there and say that the Stimulus is working exactly as they hoped it would. That is if you define success as driving a stake further into the heart of the American private sector, pushing us over the debt cliff, and massively growing the power, scope, and influence of the Feds into every part of our lives, then YES it has been a total success!

If $787 BILLION was such a success then by that logic $787 TRILLION should be that much more successful! Right, you brain dead Obama zombies?? Why not just go for the gusto and spend it all! Call up the Chinese and tell them to pack their bags for Washington ‘cuz we want all you money. Call up Tax Cheat Tim Geithner and fire up those money printing presses and just go balls-to-the-wall dollar printing if spending this money is so great and helpful to our economy?? Nah, that’s crazy talk…we couldn’t possibly spend that much money---could we?

Obama continues to lie about this plan's real intentions and of course continues to believe that government creates jobs and prosperity rather than misery and debt. Being the economic illiterates and infants that he and his administration are, they classify “transportation” jobs funded by your children and grandchildren as proof that Stimulus works. Let’s be clear, jobs like these are NOT true market driven, private sector jobs but rather temporary, artificial government created busy-work jobs that will end when the money runs out and then where will these “workers” be?? Let me answer—screwed like the rest of us.

Obama still clings to the lie that if he (note: “he” as if it wasn’t for his presence we wouldn’t be able to survive—oh thank you King Barry, may I kiss your ring??) hadn’t acted, we would have slid into a Great Depression. He could not be more misguided or lying more. The Great Depression was caused and worsened by the big government spending and polices of FDR so therefore the very fact that King Barry HAS acted will send us into this depression that he claims he saved us from. If we had done nothing at all, the worst would probably be behind us now and TRUE market economy improvements would now be present. But as I said earlier, this is the Obama shell game at work. He has no intention or desire to provide true improvement and recovery—just more debt and dependency so that he and other power hungry politicians can further secure their grip on our freedom and liberties. All part of the plan my friends….

Oh and remember, Barry promised that if we passed the stimulus, unemployment would not go above 8%! Hmmmm, what is right now? 10%?? Yep…with the true rate being more like 17% when you include those who have given up looking. And I thought we were supposed to “save or create” 4 million jobs and 95,000 more per month going forward? The only jobs we have saved are those of bureaucrats, unions, and Obama friendly company jobs for things like “green technology” (that’s called corporate fascism). And the only thing we have created is MASSIVE and UNSUSTAINABLE debt that will soon crush us all. Most of the money went to prop up failing state government budgets and programs and phony tax rebates to citizens that the government will tax back from you when you file your 2009 taxes.

How’s that Hope and Change working out for ya?? What a disgrace…

  1. If you read the book, Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlett, you will understand why stimulus packages don't work and just further erode the free market system.

    Here is a link to the book. It was written in 1946, but you would swear it was written in recent years. Which goes to show nothing has changed in Washington in the last 64 years. However, I believe it has been longer than that.
