John Fogerty, closet conservative?
…when you ask them, “How much should we give?” Ooh, they only answer “More!”
— John Fogerty, Fortunate Son
“More” seems to be a recurring theme under President Obama, ‘cause we’re getting more government and the government wants more of your money (the President also remains amenable to borrowing more, having the Treasury print more, and having the Fed buy more federal debt). And the rate that this is happening? Ooh, they only answer… “Faster!”
For example, how big is Obamacare? It’s so big Nancy Pelosi still hasn’t read it, nor have the staffers.
How big is the government itself? It’s so big people don’t even know what major parts of it are called, what purpose is served, or what gets done.
How powerful is the government? Powerful enough to kill Americans, with malice and forethought, and yet without standards of evidence, due process, or a trial
Our President tells us that overreach is bad. But that’s only as it concerns foreign policy. Overreach, as it applies to domestic policies, is an important part of his dogma.
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Most transparent Administration ever.
