Just two days after the election of conservative Scott Brown to the "Kennedy Seat" in the Senate, the Senate is proposing something more harmful to the continued strength and sovereignty of the United States - an additional $1.9 TRILLION increase to the National Debt Limit... the FIFTH such increase in the previous two years. This increase will extend the allowable national debt to $14.3 Trillion and continue the unchecked and unstoppable federal government spending that is the ROOT CAUSE to ALL our problems currently plaguing us today!
Scott Brown, the RNC, and the entire Conservative and Independent delegation to the Senate should use all means necessary to draw attention to this issue, and make THIS the legacy of the Democratic leadership (as well as the Obama administration) - perpetual national debt.
IF, however, Senate republicans and independents vote in favor of this debt extension, it is case and point the reason that no matter WHO we elect, in a Kennedy seat or otherwise, the Federal Government has NO INTENTION of representing the people of this nation, nor of upholding the constitution...
Forget Healthcare... Forget Gitmo... and while you're at it, Forget any chance for the Federal Government to reign itself in under its own persuasion... UNLESS we can demand that the National Debt NOT be extended. This is the first test in restraint in the new age of (potential) congressional understanding...
For the sake of argument, the failure to extend the debt will mean that the US Treasury will default on its debt for the first time in history, causing the absolute collapse of the US dollar as an international standard currency, and sparking an undoubted fire sale of US Dollars on the foreign market bankrupting the Nation overnight.
I argue that this is not such a bad thing.
The US has REAL WEALTH right beneath our feat. Our natural reserves, forests, ore, etc are the foundation that made this nation prosperous - throw in a little good old fashioned ingenuity and you have more than you will ever need at your fingertips. The concept of passing debt on to future generations is in direct contradiction to the ideals of George Washington et Al. We should draw our nets up around our real wealth, minimize government while maximizing individual success and prosperity, and get this nation back on track as the torch bearer for liberty.
