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.

But the EPA reassures us that all of this misery will be more than offset by the thousands of lives saved by eliminating the very small amount of Mercury coming from our existing power plants. And this idiot logic comes to us from the same Obama administration that is forcing us, under penalty of law, to throw away our incandescent light bulbs and use only the new curly-light bulbs which bring high concentrations of Mercury into our homes, under law. Are these people complete fools or what? Liberals should leave common sense alone because it's a foreign language to them.
George Bush should be relieved that Hurricane Irene is making her appearance along our eastern seaboard because the destruction she's causing will give him a break from being blamed for all the economic and social destruction being caused by our Barry. Along with the Japanese earthquake, the evil tea partiers, tooth decay and other maladies, Irene will take some of the heat off Bush brcause Obama blames everyone but himself for the destruction we see all around us. But never will liberals address the facts that their own actions, legislation and regulations are destroying the United States from the top to the bottom and from the inside out; after all, they are completely in charge and have been for over two years.

We can all recall the obvious lies of Obama when he repeatedly said he would not rest until joblessness was reduced (while shutting down all off-shore drilling), that his administration was concentrating like a laser on job creation (while allowing the NLRB to halt Boeing jet aircraft manufacturing in Charleston) and that the creation of jobs was the first thing he thought of in the morning and the last thing he thinks of at night (while allowing the EPA is issue new, draconian regulations that will shut down many power plants and cause vast joblessness for years to come, and will also cause power shortages and brownouts that will produce great suffering and a reduction of our living standards). And when you add to this Obama-created mess the fact that Holder's justice department is at it again coercing lenders to make home loans to people who can't afford them, the very same idiotic policy that caused the bursting of the housing bubble and the resulting financial crash that is causing such pain and suffering for our nation today, one must wonder if the subversive Obama administration is evil or just plain dumb. Likely both.
But now our Barry, who has never produced an idea or a proposal, whether about the economy, about spending reductions or about increasing jobs, says that he will solve all our problems later, after he's had his delightful vacation and played a few more rounds of golf. So I can envision his staff in DC slaving away to come up with some elusive, intelligent proposal that will magically reverse our downward spiral overnight, and still be political enough for Barry to go along with (like, maybe it's all the fault of George Bush, Japan's earthquake, Europe's financial troubles, the hot summer weather and the congressional Republicans because they refuse to raise taxes on the jet aircraft that the wealthy travel in), when the solution to our problems could easily be solved by drilling here and now, allowing non-union manufacturing to proceed without government obstruction and road blocks, halting all new EPA regulations, repealing Obamacare and the Financial Reform Act, firing the Departments of Education, Energy, Interior and Commerce, defunding Obama's czars and lowering taxes immediately.
But our Barry doesn't want solutions, he wants to be able to point a finger at his opponents while at the same time making his liberal base happy. I'm anxious to see what Obama's staff produces in September, but it's a certainty that it won't solve a thing, and will instead further divide this great nation and make circumstances worse.

The crime I'm referring to is the bankruptcy of our nation with excessive spending and borrowing, and the people the libs want to punish are the wealthy and the entrepreneurs who not only didn't get us into this mess, but are the only ones who can get us out of it via their money and their ability to create jobs. And, of course, the remedy the liberals seek (taxing the rich) allows the real criminals who have weakened our nation, government in general and the liberals in particular, to go on committing more criminal spending and borrowing and further undermining the greatest nation on earth.
The only way to rectify the dire financial situation we're in is to allow the wealthy to keep their money and not be tempted to remove it to a safe haven in another country, and to continue to invest and create jobs in the U.S. And we must begin immediately to punish the ones who have over-spent and over-borrowed: we must begin de-growing government by reducing each and every position in government by 25 percent; every cabinet position, Obama's czars, every department, the IRS, the EPA, the president's salary, all legislators' salaries, the White House and legislative staffs, etc. In short: every person and every expenditure in government.
So far under Obama government employment has increased dramatically, and the additional employees have only caused more angst for the nation, so now, given their failure, they must be punished. This is the "balance" Obama requested. Private businesses have suffered in the last 2 years by going out of business or reducing operations, so now it's government's turn to sacrifice. Getting rid of administrative agencies would allow business to expand and hire more people as the regulations that kill business were decreased or no longer enforced. And there would be fewer liberals in Washington to do what liberals do best: control other peoples' lives and spend other peoples' money.
But thanks to Boehner and Yoder and the recent debt ceiling bill, not only has Obama been given another trillion dollars to waste on the unions and his re-election, but the Democrats now promise to tax the wealthy, the very people we desperately need to get us out of this liberal-created mess.

So here's what we need to do, and we need it now:
No increase to the debt ceiling, and instead of allowing liberals to claim that conservatives want to cut social security and Medicare, we insist on a twenty-five percent reduction in the size of each of the following: Obama's cabinet and his czars' staffs, the Department of Education, the Department of Interior, the Department of Energy, the Department of Commerce, the IRS and the EPA. Those cuts will be real cuts, and they must be made by the next federal pay period, and they will total billions of dollars, which is not much, but would be actual savings, and would begin to halt our super-tanker of a government. Then when no one notices any reduction of government services as a result of these cost savings, further cutting the size of these agencies at a later date will be made easier.
Of course there will be criticism and finger pointing from the press, but we can point our fingers right back at them, although we will be pointing with our middle finger, and it will be pointing at the sky. We must not go wobbly at this critical time. We must insist on real cuts and savings now, and a halt to spending and indebtedness, or our children will be in increased peril.
