On Wednesday 12/13/2012, singer Harry Belafonte offered some friendly advice for Barack Obama while speaking with MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. In his view, the president should rule like a third world dictator and throw the GOP in jail for opposing him.
“That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want. The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail,” he said.
Mr. Belafonte must have never hear of limited and separation of powers and a limited government? A representation by the people who voted for their representatives in government. The left loves to say. “Elections have consequences.” Until they have to live with the consequences of any elections they disagree with.
I suppose the left has forgotten that in 2010 the people voted overwhelmingly to control spending, by limiting government, as why the GOP Tea party won overwhelmingly in the house of representatives. Now these same people are called “obstructionists” by the liberal left. Liberals are forgetting facts of truth totally, offering complaints to them, by saying that elections have consequences, but refusing to see the election results in terms of people speaking to their political leaders, over that as being only a win or a loss in any election.
In America we don’t elect a dictatorship ( a winner take all, completely unopposed power, a situation in having to accept only the winners policies). We elect officials who hopefully have the ability’s to perswade people to see their points of view, and then voting on those points. Not to drag people, kicking and screaming, in excepting or invoke political policies of crisis, or manipulating people in selecting only from these solutions of more spending and borrowing. What is said to be those same failed solutions of uncontrolled government, that only seems to lead to an even more manipulative or uncomfortable life, within an identical crisis to the past.
“Nothing is accomplished in facing tomorrows responsibility’s, by refusing to act on todays responsibility’s.” unknown.
Doing the same things over and over expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
To call your political opponents obstructionist because you dislike their politics, or at the very least, want them to compromise their principles, is just using a dictator’s vision,” In order to get along, you must go along.”
One man’s obstructionist is another man’s conservationist. Who would be working to protect against socialist dictators using command and control style governing as the only option. The left seem to be using crisis, or the creations of them, to increase the need for government to take power and liberty from the people, thus killing the future needs to vote on issues. After all if you don’t support winners policies then you are an obstructionists to them, all because elections have consequences you know?
Using the terms of……. “Elections have consequences.” never seem to sink into the liberal mind, when they have to deal with a loss of an election. Funny that the left then also starts to use terms like “obstructionist” in describing someone who is doing their job, according to the people that voted these politicians into office. Liberals tend to overlook that there is more to an election year then who won the presidents office.
When that doesn’t work they seem to use stronger terms like Mr. Belafonte used, “Infestation”! So when Republicans or Tea-party people were elected to office, charged with doing the job as the people’s representatives, in stopping Obama’s reckless policies, they can now be considered to be an “infestation” in government. The descriptive nature of these words and others, describing your political rivals as being the problem, while hiding the true nature of the problem, is governing through fear. Because words have meanings the word choice is interesting, since one normally deals with an infestation by eliminating it. Can there really be any room for compromise, or honestly any bipartisanship, or a willingness, for these opposed powers in working together?
Republicans, or Tea party patriots, the faster you realize the facts, that the Democrats are out to eliminate you as a relevant political force, if not totally eliminate you, because you’re position and opposition to their brand of socialism designed for a total takeover, a total power grab through corruption of the election proses. The better you will be equipped with the power to recognize that you and you alone are the last conservationists of liberty, and freedom in America. If they look at you as an infestation, then you can’t ever compromise your principles in trying to co-govern with the enemies of liberty and freedom, who would deal with any infestation like a third world dictator by eliminating it.
The importance of the debt limit isn’t in limiting government from paying bills. But limiting government in increasing its size, and moving away from its importance of its spending as a driving force in the economy. Future growth borrowed from the bank of China, with the belief that our children will be all too happy to pay these bills, while receiving nothing in return for these payments. Is taxation without representation!
The borrower is a slave to the lender! Borrowing more and more to function as a society, as an economy, or as a government, is just sowing the seeds of our own destruction.
The function of any limit, is to give a warning to the danger of going past your limits, before you even get there, so you can avoid any and all negative consequences for going past them.
Constantly moving your limits, pretending they were always ment to be moved, all because of being ill-equipped to deal with the problem, doesn’t resolve or prevent any problems, nor is it a solution. It is a symptom of the addiction.
Democrats when faced with having to reduce spending on their favorite programs, the project devastation they present, along with some frightful out comes, or some kind of uncomfortable existences, as being inhumane, abusive and uncaring treatment, are the results of policies of the opposition party. Obscuring the facts of finance, that prosperity and wealthy, is never an accomplished goal by being asset poor and mountain of debt rich.
If Liberty is to become extinct it is because the conservationists (GOP conservatives) are not willing to do the hard work, the unpopular work of presenting the arguments in a persuasive way to the public. Only quietly going along, to get along, isn’t governing from the perspective in preserving the constitution for all from all foreign or domestic enemy’s. Compromise isn’t any tool used in making persuasive arguments, but is excepting a more comfortable defeat.
When was an unlimited debt ever the principles of our founding?
Government doesn’t produce anything, it taxes all economic production of the people, and then by definition is a growth inhibitor.
Politically speaking. We must recognize that every dime spent in payment to the interest on our debts, is a drag on future growth, future job creation, future security, future economical innovations, while increasing the size of todays obstacles into impossible ones, for future leaderships to deal with. We today are standing at the generational crossroads, deciding what kind of future our kids will have, or can expect. If we the adults in society or in government, are only interested in working for the extravagances of life, allowing ourselves only to enjoy freedom and liberty. Then we must honestly confess, too our own selfish greed, “That we don’t care about our youth”! What gives us the rights to sell, those freedoms and liberty’s, those God-given rights, that our kids should also be able to expect for themselves, with indifference to enslaving them to foreign banks, and treasonous governments, forcing them to pay for our extravagance of today? The borrower is a slave to the lender! How can we then enjoy our extravagances by selling “Our kids ” and their lives into slavery tomorrow?
Modern third world dictators always use the command and control style of governance in solving a self-made crisis while also reducing any powers that oppose it. The Democrat party, and prehaps some of the Republican party, must see themself’s as the slave masters of tomorrow? By wanting to eliminate all infestations / or opposition to their support of policies like, unlimited debt, and the slow erosion of liberty, their policies only seem to managed the decay, over finding true positive solutions.
When has a Democratic policy, a socialist solution, ever been purposed to the people resulted in a reversal of the social decline within society? Liberal policies have only added to a farther decline. Will the Modern Republican party embrace conservative principles, present them publicly and persuasively, or will they allow liberty’s extinction, by finely drowning it to death, with debt?
