We are powerless, right? Left-wing extremist Democrats control the White House, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. Now that they have the opportunity, they will steamroll every wished-for liberal dream over the last 50 years. I know it is a small gesture, but I did my small part to counter this radical tsunami by signing the web petition above. Now do your part!
Here are my remarks (perhaps a bit over-dramatic or hyperbolic?):
This is not about jobs or stimulus. It is a power grab. It is a tax increase. It is stealth burden on the American worker. It will devalue the currency. And this is just the beginning. Most importantly, this bloated debt spending frenzy is, in truth, a patronage machine designed to keep Leftist/Liberal/Communist/Socialist/Democrats in power for decades, or permanently, as they seek to transform American culture and life into their egalitarian utopian "workers paradise." Bankrupt the American economy? All the better, because the ensuing hoped-for catastrophic crisis will make it all too easy for those currently in power to usurp the already weakened Constitution, and make the desperate nation swallow the revolutionary pill.
Here are some FACTUAL talking points, from the website; not mind-numbed disinformational ones that liberal talking heads are so good at getting repeated endlessly in the mainstream media:
The so-called “Stimulus Package” is being sold to taxpayers as an investment in useful infrastructure like roads and bridges. But the facts prove otherwise.
Only 3.6% of the scheme’s $825 billion price tag would actually go to real, practical infrastructure projects--roads and bridges.
Most of the other 96.4% would go to special interest pet projects, and to cramming years’ worth of radical policy changes into the single largest spending and debt scheme in history.
Why are our nation’s leaders doing this? Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel was strikingly honest when he said "Never let a serious crisis go to waste...it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before." Exactly what fringe policies are big-government politicians attempting to ram through with this colossal bill?
Under the auspices of a “Federal Health Board,” the package heavily funds the first steps towards the socialization and government-mandated rationing of health care. [See WSJ's "Democratic 'Stealth' Care"] And this is just one of many government power grabs being shoehorned into the so-called “Stimulus Package.”
In fact, even by the most charitable estimates, the bill would force taxpayers to foot the bill for at least 600,000 new government bureaucrats. That’s six tenths of a million more people on the government payroll -- adding little or no value to our economy and being paid with billions upon billions of your hard-earned tax dollars.
And just what sort of special interest giveaways and wasteful government spending are included in the so-called “Stimulus Package”? To name just a few...
- $4.19 billion in slush funds for ACORN, the left-wing advocacy group best known for allegations of voter fraud during the 2008 presidential campaign
- $600 million to buy brand new cars for government bureaucrats
- $335 million for adult sex workshops (one of the few line items which could conceivably deliver "stimulus" )
- $150 million for honeybee insurance
- $2.8 billion for the US Department of Agriculture in a misdirected program more likely be spent to build unnecessary broadband internet services in urban areas than in the rural areas that lack service.
