Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

"Professional Politicians" Are The Problem, Not The Solution
As regular visitors of Political Chips have seen via video clips, Obama stated that we dummy citizens should butt out of the very cerebral, deep-thought matters concerning the debt ceiling and wild spending and let the "professional politicians" handle the negotiations so we citizen-rubes can go back to our mundane, shallow lives. The problem is that it's exactly the career politicians who have intentionally created this disaster, and they cannot and must not be trusted to resolve matters in a way that will preserve our security, our liberty and our prosperity.
Our brave liar-in-chief betrayed the teleprompter further by exposing the long-held lie of the Social Security "Trust Fund" when he stated that he couldn't promise that Social Security checks would be sent out if the government shut down due to budget-talk failures. The big-government crowd has consistently held that the Social Security Trust Fund is full of cash and will last decades into the future. But the truth is that all of the money that flows weekly into the trust fund is immediately shuttled to the government's general revenue fund and all that's left in the trust fund for Social Security recipients are IOUs, which only make the government's unfunded obligations a heavier burden. Liberals have spoken sternly about the Social Security lock box being a sacred national treasure and a solemn trust for present and future retirees, but we know that "professional politicians" are the basest of liars and that there is no money in any trust fund, Social Security or otherwise, and these funds have only served to provide politicians with billions of dollars of additional money to spend on their pet projects in order to buy favor and votes at the public expense, and is now being exposed by the chief liar as being a broken piggy bank: if there are billions of dollars in the Social Security Trust Fund, why can't Social Security recipients be paid from these supposedly secure funds regardless of whether or not budget talks fail? It's because we're broke and have NO MONEY, and it's because of "professional politicians" like Obama.
But revenues to the government are still enormous, so when Obama says that Social Security checks may not go out if the government shuts down, it's only because he wants to scare Social Security recipients and make the Republicans buckle to his socialist demands, because as the head of the executive branch of government, Obama has complete control over how government expenditures are allocated, and if he would prefer to deny Social Security checks in favor of giving Brazil billions of dollars to build their oil fields or give billions of dollars to Ireland or Greece to bail out their crashing economies, then he's completely to blame, not Republicans.
One talking-head recently made the statement that to remain solvent government will at least make the interest payments to holders of U.S. bonds, but this assumes we can trust Obama to have the best interests of the United States at heart (which he absolutely does not have), and we must look at how Obama handled the GM and Chrysler bankruptcies, and recall the illegal way he took control of those companies with the complete denial of bond-holder's contractual rights to be paid first, just so he could quickly nationalize these prize cows and enrich his union pals, and we get the feeling that Obama probably would not pay today's government obligations, thereby not only causing a greater national catastrophe than we currently have, but an international disaster as the U.S. fails to pay its most basic obligations, and that will be the last straw in Obama's intentional and willful destruction of this great nation. The national division, fear, doubt and unemployment Obama has personally caused will bring our financial collapse, much to the joy of the forces of evil in the world that hate us and our pleasant lives.
So Republicans are in a hard spot and must display courage and not concern themselves with who will get the blame for a government shut-down. The spending and borrowing must end, and if Obama causes even more destruction as a result of failed negotiations, then Republicans must identify the culprit without fear and DO THE RIGHT THING by standing uo to Obama's threats to attach blame to Republicans and insist that he make serious reductions in spending and not raise taxes..
