Sequestration – Bring on the cuts!
A brief look at national politics for a moment…
Lucky for me – I haven’t really watched TV since late summer 2011. And from what I’ve been reading – all the mainstream media is talking about as of late is the whole big, bad, scary “sequestration” that is injecting fear and worry into all the sheeple that still live & die by the words of the fake, manufactured “news” you see on the boob tube.
Don’t let them scare you with Sequestration chatter!
Perhaps I should remind you of one great alternative news source: The Ulsterman Report.
They ran an article in reference to the March 1st. Sequester deadline that takes the spin out of what the MSM is trying to convince everyone of. Here’s an excerpt:
“Let’s say sequestration happens. People don’t understand that with all those cuts in place, the federal budget would actually be returning to 2007 levels. And in 2007, the United States was already spending way too much money on itself. Democrats said as much back then. Barack Obama called the spending in 2007 “unpatriotic.” Right? So that is the level of spending we would be returning to. The levels of spending going on now during the Obama era are not just unpatriotic. They are insane and threaten every man woman and child in America.
Could there be some short term pain? Sure. The last time we actually saw a widespread reduction in government spending was the defense cuts of the early 1990s. Unemployment rose to just over 7%, though in a couple years went back down to about 4%. GDP exploded to almost 10 trillion by the end of the 1990s. More jobs. More money. More opportunities for all Americans. It isn’t rocket science. Just basic common sense free market capitalism. The kind of free market capitalism the Obama White House has wanted to destroy since day one.
I say let them have it. Sequester away. Cut away. Cut. Cut. Cut.
Let the cuts happen. Then and only then will people start to realize that they don’t need all this government. Remind people that Barack Obama wasted about $100 billion on bogus green energy companies that were just paybacks to his political supporters. Remind people we are spending over a billion dollars per year on the Obama family alone. Or better yet, explain to people how much it is going to cost all of us, every last one of us, if interest rates jump up to even a moderate 5%. Do they realize how many more hundreds of billions of dollars that will cost the country every year? It will easily dwarf the tiny by comparison cuts we are talking about here with sequestration.”
I think the only people that might need to worry are those who lean on government handouts and freebies a bit too much. Don’t let them scare you. They’re doing it on purpose. You know the “psychological trickery” by now, don’t you?
