Why didn’t anyone complain about the national debt when Bush was President?
June 27, 2011 by Bob Livingston
How is it NO PERSON, Senator, or Congressman said anything about the National Debt when President G. Bush kept borrowing money from China, Japan, and South Korea to finance a war that he and Dick Cheney concocted for their own financial gains through Haliburton? All of a sudden the whole country is crying about spending. Then, no one spoke of the enormous bill that was adding to the national debt without figuring how to pay for their actions.
All these expenses were authorized by the Republicans and nobody complained.
You cannot say that NO PERSON has said anything. I and many others have been warning of the dangers of the spending policies of Congress and the Federal Reserve’s money printing for 40-plus years. But you are looking the financial situation in our country through a false left-right paradigm. Obama’s spending policies and war expansion are more egregious than were Bush’s. Bush’s were more egregious than were Clinton’s. Clinton’s were more egregious than were Bush 41′s, whose were more egregious than Reagan’s, etc. The financial collapse is being orchestrated by the powers that be and right and left, Republican and Democrat are all the same. Why are Republicans complaining now but didn’t when Bush was in office? That answer should be obvious to you. It’s the same answer as the one to the question: Why did Democrats complain loudly of Bush’s spending and war policies but do not now complain about Obama’s? They are trying to keep people like you caught up in the false left-right paradigm in order to sow discord and keep themselves and their parties in power and keep you distracted from the real culprits, the Federal Reserve, U.S. monetary policy and unConstitutional laws passed by Congress.
And by the way, one person in Washington, D.C., has complained loud and long about spending and consistently voted against it: Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas).
