What part of "we told you so" is so hard to understand? For decades everyone on both sides (tyranny versus liberty) have been bemoaning our dependence on foreign oil. It's a Sword of Damocles that's been dangling over our collective heads since Commissar Carter turned off the air conditioning, but all we do is talk about how we have to "decrease our dependence" and "develop alternative sources", yada, yada yada. We've all dreaded the day when we'd be really held hostage by events we could no longer control, and now it is here. But, we've always had the solution, and we've allowed those with less wisdom than my socks to talk us out of using it.
If you buy into the lie that Conservatives "drove the car into the ditch" during the Bush Administration, then taking that metaphor to its logical conclusion, the Obama Administration has doused the car with gas, set it on fire, and rolled it off a cliff! They claim we "want the keys back". Yep - we wanted to drive it out of the ditch. However, union organizers (related to "community organizers") are now attacking the burning car with explosives, and if they succeed, there won't be a car left to drive!
Thanks to my buddy Jim for sending this link. If you think you
understand the immigration issue - think again. When you view this
short video - your perception will change forever.
The solution is not more money, and definitely NOT what we're doing.
On the first day of Congress, Congressman Woodall from Georgia introduced HR25 - the Fair Tax Bill with 47 co-sponsors! Three additional cosponsors were added with the next few days. Now is the time to contact your Congressman, particularly if yours is newly-elected, and ask for them to not only support the bill, but become a co-sponsor. Passage of this one measure alone would do much to reverse the downward spiral of tax-spend-tax-spend that has been the hallmark of Congress since the passage of the 16th Amendment.
