I have been watching the Conservative movement eat itself alive. Why are we so quick to attack our own? I am disappointed in many “so called” Republican Conservatives. There are many who are conservative only in name, but liberal in spirit. Because of that we are quick to attack any action by Republicans that appears to be against everything we are fighting for.
The recent budget debate is a prime example. On the surface it appears that the Republicans once again caved to the wishes of the left, but did they really have a choice? Yes they had a choice, but was it a better or worse choice? I think increasing the debt ceiling is absolutely the wrong thing to do to turn our economy around. It really irks me that they increased the debt ceiling, but what was the alternative?
The alternative of course was to allow the debt to default. Whether we had the money to pay the debt or not is immaterial because those in charge would have used that scenario to make their move. The ultimate goal of this administration is for America to default on its debts. But why would anyone want America to default on its loans? Who could possibly benefit from such and act?
To answer these questions one would have to look at what would transpire in just such an event. The minute that America defaulted it would trigger a national emergency and who is responsible to respond to national emergencies? The office of the Presidency of course would be called upon to act. The Constitution mandates that America has to pay its debts, and as executor of our government the President would be responsible to respond.
How do you think he would respond? With his record do you think he will do the “right” thing? He wants to have an unlimited debt ceiling, so do you think he would limit the debt? He loves to spend money and that is apparent with his healthcare plan, his vacation schedule, and his fiscal policies. Once he responds he will have unlimited power in our government, because he who controls the purse strings controls everything.
He could control every aspect of our government because he would control what was paid for and what wasn’t paid for. Do you think that we would be better off with increasing the debt ceiling, or better off with Obama controlling our debts?
I hate it that we HAD to increase the debt ceiling and give in to the irresponsible government policies, but I think we would all have hated it even more if we had defaulted on our debt. The sad part of all this is that this is just round one. These recent negotiations only cover us for about four months and then we can start the entire process all over again.
Obama is laughing at us because he knows that he will win one way or another. Either we give in and give him increased spending or he takes the power from us to spend to his heart’s content. We can’t win as long as Congress is irresponsible and doesn’t do what they are obligated by law to do, and that is to be frugal with our money.
But back to the reason I wrote this article and that is that we, the conservatives need to stop eating our own. We always need to point out the things in government that we disagree with and we should always hold our elected official’s feet to the fire. But that doesn’t mean we have to be vicious to them just because we feel their actions resulted in increasing the debt. Sometimes we have to look at the big picture and not just the one being projected on our TV screen.
I don’t hold it against any of the Republicans who voted to increase the debt ceiling in order to not allow Obama to take control of all of America’s finances. But I do hold it against everyone in Congress who has allowed it to come to this. We should have never gotten to this stage in our fiscal responsibilities. Congress has created this problem and it isn’t doing anything to remedy it. It actually continues to make it worse.
I’m not sure if there is much that can be done at this point, but we need to do something because our present path is taking us down the path of the ultimate destruction of America. Everything is in place for America to be taken over by the fiscally irresponsible, but will we stand around and allow it to happen? Congress needs to be held accountable because they are the ones setting the stage for all this to happen.
We need to make Congress aware of what we expect of them, but when they get themselves in a corner trying to do the right thing we should understand why and respond responsibly to their dilemma. Right now the House is the minority because they are fighting against the Senate and the Executive Branch. The House is even divided within its on halls so how do you expect them to effectively fight the other government departments?
Right now I wouldn’t want to be a Republican in the House or the Senate for that matter. They can’t win with so much stacked against them. They are fighting the left, the Senate, the Executive Branch and their own constituents. They can’t win, so don’t be too quick to condemn them when it appears they have gone to the dark side because sometimes there is only the dark side.
Somehow we need to turn on the lights in our government so that there isn’t just the dark. The lights I refer to are the lights inside the heads of every voter out there. We need to educate them about what is happening and what has to be done to stop it. It is the only way we will ever win this fight. We need to speak out and be heard about the corruption within our government. I will continue to scream out about it, what will you do?
