Oh, I’m sorry. This time it’s called “Economic Stimulus”. (For the record, since I know it’s going to come up, I didn’t approve of Bush’s stimulus package, either. While he was amazing as the War on Terror, his economic policies were seriously lacking.)
Because 1 trillion dollars (that’s $1,000,000,000,000) at the start of it all didn’t work, the Immaculate Administration of Hope and Change decided that we needed another 1 trillion dollars (that’s $1,000,000,000,000) to help prop up an economy that NEEDS TO RECEDE AND DEFLATE like it always has and always will. Where does this money come from, I ask you? We obviously can’t afford it. Our national debt has already peaked 10 trillion (that’s $10,000,000,000,000) under the Bush Administration and everyone was upset at the poor policies of the Republicans. I mean, I agreed… Cutting taxes without cutting spending? It’s like, DUH! Got to get the money from somewhere if it’s not coming from taxes, and that makes the deficit go up!
But yeah, let’s completely forget that, because it’s the Democrats who’re doing it this time, and they said they’d clear out the “Culture of Corruption” and run a transparent administration of hope and change. Yeah! What this economy really needs is more money dumped into it, because there really is no such thing as inflation. Nah. Print more money than we have… Borrow more money than we have… It’ll make it all better! Prices will remain the same and everyone can help relieve some of the pressure! What a load of bull honkey… Even the poll on the CNN article (at the moment with over 37,000 votes) has 69% of the people saying it won’t make any difference. (When a liberal site has comments and votes against liberal action, you know it’s wrong.) But since when has the Democrat-controlled Congress ever listened to what we, The People (aka: The Majority), want? Nobody wanted the first bail out, nobody wanted this bail out. The first one obviously didn’t work, so what’s the answer? Let’s do it again, voters be darned! Why? “Because it’s good for us.” Please. A population properly educated on an issue will more than likely make the best decision on it. They already know how this economic crisis came about. (Keep reading.)
On the bright side, with the sweep of the Democrats during the last election, a lot of RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) were flushed out and actually switched parties so they could be on the “winning team”. What does that do? Why, it leaves Republicans in a cripple state, doesn’t it? I mean, that’s what the mainstream media keeps saying. What actually happened is that “The Great Republican Flush” cleared out mostly everyone except true Conservatives. When you see a Republican right now, you can most likely say they’re a Conservative. And you know what the House Republicans did, bless their hearts?
THEY DIDN’T VOTE FOR IT. Not a single one. Period. This is a completely Democrat idea and it passed the House with nothing but Democrat votes. Finally, the liberals have a back bone. When (not if… WHEN) this thing fails, you know who’s going to be carrying the bag? Oh, you know it! The Democrats and their Lord Messiah Barack Obama. Mark my words. It WILL fail. You can tell the Democrats think it’ll fail, too, because they kept pressuring the Republicans to vote. If a bill is going to succeed, why try forcing the other party to help you when you can pass it anyway and take all the credit? If it’s going to fail, you know they’re going to want someone to share the blame with. I mean, even if it’s completely insane, they need to keep up their promises that the government can fix everything, don’t they! But the Republicans FINALLY said “no way! We ain’t helping you do anything!”
Any economist worth their weight in salt can see failure coming from a hundred miles away. Failure of capitalism, my butt. The Democrats can keep blowing their hot air all over the place, but at least The People still realize the true cause of this financial mess was Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and the CLINTON ADMINISTRATION GOVERNMENT REGULATION that required firms to provide loans to people who could never pay them back. When the Republicans tried to get something done about it before it all imploded, good ol’ Barney Frank kept saying nothing could happen. The man is a freak, and he and the others responsible for this mess are in charge of cleaning it up. Yeah, that sure is a recipe for success.
The only way to get this economy back on its feet is to let those who made poor business decisions get flushed down the toilet. Nobody’s saying it’s going to be easy, but it’s better to get this thing over with now before we flush trillions down the toilet with them. Seriously… 819 billion dollar stimulus? Seriously? My gosh. People will remember stuff like this next election. So in the best interest of the country, STOP DOING CRAP LIKE THIS. But, at the same time, in the best interest of the Republican Party in 2010, KEEP DOING CRAP LIKE THIS. It will make the Conservative sweep to power that much easier! For those of us who are crying at this stupidity of the administration’s push for this bill, remember:
It took a Jimmy Carter to get a Ronald Reagan!
