February, even with a leap year, is the shortest month of the year. This February we ran up some amazing numbers. Unfortunately, the shortest month gave us one of the largest injuries to the economy.
What was it?
In February, the shortest month of the year, the Federal Government rang up the largest budget deficit in our history. In February, the deficit was $229 billion dollars.
These numbers have gotten to the point where they no longer faze anyone. We have become numb to them. We are now like the passengers on the Titanic, looking at the stern rising up into the air and starting to realize, as actor David Warner said in the movie “Titanic,” “you know, I do believe this ship may sink.”
Let’s put this in perspective. The Republicans lost control of the House and Senate in 2007. The last budget that was passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Republican President was the fiscal year 2007 budget. When that budget year closed, our deficit was $161 billion.
Just in case we have forgotten, the last time the Republicans controlled Congress, unemployment was at 4.6 percent. In January 2007, the average price of regular gas was $2.18 a gallon.
Today we are burning through other people’s money at an unbelievable rate.
There is a reason for this. Obama and his cronies are hard-core socialists (or Marxists if you prefer). They have one objective. They want to destroy the free market system and replace it with the dictatorship of the proletariat.
The problem with what Obama wants to do is there are certain inevitable results. Socialism generates tyranny, poverty and far to often mass murder. The leading mass murderers of the last century were all socialists (with an honorable mention to the Turks for the Armenian genocide). Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot were all socialists.
Unfortunately Obama, Pelosi and Reid are all enamored with an ideology that in the last century, either directly or indirectly has killed probably a billion people.
The deficits Obama and the Democrats are running are worse every month. Anyone with two functioning brain cells should be able to figure out the end result here. We will have a national economic collapse. America is not too big to fail and the policies of Barack Obama and the Party of Treason are not simply wrong. They have one specific objective.
They want to destroy the American economy.
If the American economy is destroyed, they can remake America in to the kind of socialist hellhole that they think we should be.
The problem with socialism is not as Margaret Thatcher said that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money. The problem with socialism is that in order to implement socialism, freedom and liberty must be destroyed.
America is the greatest, freest nation on the earth.
Unfortunately for Americans, we are like those passengers on the Titanic. If Obama and his party of socialists, American liberty will sink like the Titanic.
And unfortunately for Americans, like the Titanic, there will be no lifeboats for us. There will be no place left where the lamp of liberty still shines and where freedom rings.
American citizens are helping obama and Reid. They are asleep Americans who do nothing but talk and react, instead of being pro-active.
I do not believe that.election fraud is of such a massive scale that no one can ignore it any longer
Your right on Debrajoe..its time for all of us to be pro-actve..on saving this country..These are very serious times that need very serious actions from everyone..to be able to achieve our goal of returning this country back to the people. We have a uphill battle..we know, but what the Hell..it all part of life !!
I am afraid it is too late!!!!Too many people have scales on their eyes, cotton in their ears, and greed has taken over this country. God Have Mercy on the USA.!
Yes, Annie, those facts that you listed above ring true. Yet, we who hold fast to faith in God through Christ Who extends His grace and mercy, are the same ones who must humble ourselves and seek His face on bended knee from within and without - body, mind, heart and soul. All of Psalm 91 speaks of His power and shelter through the storm. I'll be praying Psalm 91 with you.
This is our Hope. Our Hope is in Christ Jesus. He is coming soon and all that is going on is pointing to that. This time to receive His children, the second advent to Reign in Jerusalem!! This is something to look forward too. The sad thing is there are so many people not ready for this event. They are too blinded by lies and deceit.
I am a pragmatist. "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!"
AMEN to that!!!!!
I disagree. If the ship of State sinks, it won't necessarily take the States with it. In fact, it might be a good thing. Then, maybe, we can devolve the Union into smaller, more manageable countries.
Good Idea. Just think what this country might be like today if Lincoln hadn't gone against the constitutional right of the south to succeed from the Union. Never realized he had done that. Glad I'm finally up on things.
Who said anything about Lincoln?
