The media was wrong in pronouncing the economic crisis over in Europe. They are wrong in America, too. The real economic indicators prove that the economic crisis caused by too much government, too much spending, too much taxing, too many government regulations and too many government employees with obscene salaries and pensions is just beginning.
Barack Obama added $6 trillion in debt in only four years to “save” us from a terrible economy. Well, he didn’t save anyone. He just put all of us into much deeper debt. This debt will destroy the lives of our children and grandchildren. And the economy isn’t even better. It’s in shambles.
Hugo Chavez just died, and many of us said “good riddance” to a tyrant who defrauded his own people, intimidated his political opposition and left his economy and country in disarray. Senator Rand Paul seemed to be reminding us: “Why would we want a tyrant in America, too?”
The man whose mediocre Presidential campaign almost sunk the entire GOP can now save it. Even better, the same Mitt Romney, now an unelected private citizen, can also save Detroit — and, by doing so, prove the conservative model for the U.S. economy works and become an American hero.
Mitt Romney was the perfect man to save America. Then Jimmy Carter’s grandson released the tape where Romney discussed “the 47 percent” of Americans who want government to give them checks and will vote for the politician who keeps the checks coming. Romney’s campaign unraveled.
“Sequestration” is just another of President Barack Obama’s scams. There is a long list of other things the American public should panic about. The economy is in free fall. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Wal-Mart calls its sales to start 2013 “a total disaster.”
There are a lot of things you can change in life, but you can’t fix stupid. Barack Obama’s speech Tuesday wasn’t a State of the Union. It was a “State of Denial.” It was denial mixed with delusion. It was a state of addiction to spending.
The rich are fleeing in droves. The Barack Obama tax-and-spend Ponzi scheme is imploding. What changed? The technology revolution has made it possible to do business from places where the taxes are lower (or nonexistent) and where the government treats people better.
For one week, let’s take a break from President Barack Obama and politics. This week is all about the most popular and celebrated event in the world: the Super Bowl. And there is a very special lesson in this year’s game for all of us to study, learn and implement in our lives.
You know that famous TV show “Are you Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” Well that show has inspired me to ask: “Is Obama smarter than a communist?” Many socialist and communist leaders seem to have learned a lesson that Obama has not.
