I am sitting here wondering what the heck is it going to take to wake the average American from the slumber of stupidity. I am watching this whole situation with the NY 23rd District and I couldn't be more amazed at the overall level of stupidity and arrogance of all involved. Dede is a liberal's liberal, but has made pledges to do conservative stuff to get elected. The repubs support her, including Newt and some other notables. The question is why?
There is another much more suitable candidate running that the repubs ignored to what appears to be their peril. Doug Hoffman is a conservative and would have been a good choice in these economic times. Instead they go find a liberal and get her to make a whole list of promises to act conservative. Are they insane? Once elected, everyone knows there is no holding her accountable for her votes and she will own nothing to the dumb people that elected her.
The repubs has lost the Reagan picture of small government and the lower taxes that result from smaller government. If you starve the beast the cost of supporting the beast is much lower. Fiscal conservatism is the polar opposite of progressivism's big government theory. Now is the time to put a stake in the heart of this blood sucker once and for all. We now have an electorate tired of big government, big government spending and the high taxes to pay for it. We need to support candidates that are willing to get in there and kill the beast.
This could be the last hurrah for big government and a new dawning for America, if we only seize this opportunity. Put people into office that believe this way. Have them repeal the amendments and laws that created this beast. We can be compassionate without giving away the farm. We can stop helping those who refuse to help themselves. We can stop sending troops to Europe and the Middle East to provide for their protection while we mortgage our grand children's futures with massive national debt.
If a candidate running for office regardless of party does not want to put and end to big government then they need to be defeated. We need to support the ones that do. It is obvious that the repubs only want to be restored to power, so they will have the keys to the treasury. They don't care about you or me. They only want to be back on top and in charge of the great tax dollar giveaway. We need to put an end to this looting and start returning order. The glory days of Reagan were not that the repubs were in charge, but that the fiscal conservatives were in charge. Sure he wasn't perfect and spent a lot of money on defense, but that ended the Cold War which saved us billions, which were immediately squandered over the next decade and a half.
You want better then now is the time to drive the stake home into the progressive government beast. They don't know what is best for you and your family. They have no clue how to run a business or how to make a living. They only know that unless we stop them they will continue to grow fat and rich on our hard earned money. They will sell our children into slavery with ever growing National Debt. When this house of cards finally collapses then I will sadly hang my head and say "I told you so".
