From Paul Kane, White Lake Township:
“Government shutdown” threats from progressives in Washington D.C. filled the recent airwaves. One example from progressives was that “Republicans want to kill women” in response to Republican attempts to end the unlawful government funding of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill.
What a bunch of hogwash. Progressives are clearly willing to stoop to any level in order to drag America into complete bankruptcy.
Progressives, dating back to President Woodrow Wilson, have skewed America so dramatically that we now own an unfathomable debt of $14 trillion-plus. Can anyone even wrap their thoughts around how big that number really is? Current progressives have absolutely no intention of reducing spending, much less paying off the debt, but instead business-as-usual government growth.
On the other hand, responsible Americans, for the sake of America’s future, want desperately to right this ship into the absolute opposite direction.
Government shutdown is exactly what we want. We’d prefer it in an orderly manner, growing our tax base and tax receipts by growing private sector employment as a result of dramatically shrinking the federal government’s public sector employment. There is simply no other way out of this mess. In fact, I’d have them shut down every single unconstitutional activity that the U.S. government is involved in. “Unconstitutional,” as I see it, means “illegal.” So why is our government allowed to break the law? Because some progressive judge twisted the meaning of the U.S. Constitution and deemed something legal? Because it sounded nice, it sounded fair, or it fit in with his progressive agenda?
It’s as if progressives are sick, with a deep-seeded addiction to government spending. Threaten to reduce the amount in their spending syringe and they squeal like addicts who need their fix. So should we succumb to their squeals or stand up like men and do the favor of applying some break-the-addiction tough love?
One way or another, government shutdown is going to happen if we don’t radically reduce spending. Should we not do it now before things get so bad that we cannot stop America’s collapse?
