Who are the fear mongers?
The dems are screeching from every platform in America about the inevitable destruction of life as we know it if we don’t all lay down and let them steamroll us with what Michelle Malkin has suitably titled The Generational Theft Act of 2009. Obama’s was out the other day guaranteeing us trillion dollar deficits for the foreseeable future, but telling us we should be afraid of what would happen without them. Without digging the deficit hole so deep our great-great grandchildren may not refill it in their lifetimes, things could get really bad according to the President-elect–even dire.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tells Americans to trust the politicians who passed the laws, catered the corruption, and ignored the warnings that led to our economy’s current unstable foundation–they can fix it. Reminds me of the movie “Fast Times at Ridgemont Hight” when Shawn Penn wrecked the football star’s car and said “I can fix it.” She says we shouldn’t fear mortgaging our grandchildren’s future, but be very afraid of not being able to buy a new big screen TV this year.
If you’ve read my other posts regarding the bailout/stimulus/Socialist spending plans the last few weeks, you already know where I stand. Ronald Reagan said it best when he said, “Government takes from the needy and gives to the greedy.” Fred Thompson does a great job explaining why this plan-to-save-us-from-certain-death is fundamentally flawed here. And you can see another great explanation of the fallacy of Keynesian economics from Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute in this video.
What, you still don’t believe those folks know what they’re talking about? Well, how about two UCLA professors who studied the Great Depression and concluded that Roosevelt’s policies didn’t save us from the Depression, they made it worse! Again, thanks to Michelle Malkin for bringing this study to light. These two professors, from UCLA (not a right-wing think tank by any means) mind you, set out to find why the Great Depression lasted soooooo loooonng and discovered FDR’s attempts to stimulate the economy actually stifled it!
“Ironically, our work shows that the recovery would have been very rapid had the government not intervened.”
Yet, here we go again. Using the same flawed logic and theory that FDR used to make a bad depression worse, Democrats are trying to strike fear of the alternatives into the hearts of Americans.
We need to work hard to make sure these idiots only control all three branches of government for 2 years or the human race may be extinct before we can recover from their stimulus.
