“One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government.”~Congressman Ron Paul, (R-TX)
In theory, Republicans want a smaller government, one that leaves more decisions to the people with less intrusion into their lives. Unfortunately, once elected, many old-guard Republican members of Congress fall victim to their own lust for power and perks. They begin acting like Democrats, advocating programs that pander to their constituents in exchange for their future votes.
With the 2010 elections, Americans sent a clear message, “enough of the old leadership.” Thus, a new breed of fiscal conservatism was brought to Washington to help begin restoring America’s future.
They have been constantly thwarted by the recalcitrant Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, who will not let Republican legislation, even bipartisan legislation be voted on in the Senate.
Harry Reid is an anachronism and still a true believer that raising taxes and continued spending is the answer. Thus, largely due to progressive programs in the name of so-called “social justice,” America’s economic future has been sold, with the likes of China propping up the continued charade.
Apparently, he is no student of history as he might have learned that no country in the history of the world has taxed itself into prosperity.
It’s time for the Obamas, Reids, Pelosis, and the entire progressive movement to be soundly defeated in the November elections.
