Say what you want, President Clinton. Obama is the best man for the job, but he isn’t good enough.
Here are my questions, Mr. Eastwood.
“Mr. President, why is the best your office can do, is a 700 billion dollar deficit after 10 years? Why can’t you balance the budget within your possible 8 years of administration?”
Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush’s last day in office, which coincided with President Obama’s first day.
Does Romney have a plan to balance the budget? The CBO estimates that 80% of American’s oppose the Ryan Plan, mainly because it radically changes Medicare, a program which Americans value. Mitt Romney won’t release a plan before the election, so it’s basically a guessing game with him. One thing we do know is that he believes the tax code is a major barrier to economic growth in this country, a hypothesis that multiple studies utilizing empirical evidence have disproved. He also is a Mormon, which is just plain annoying, are there any cool Mormons?
What is our economy in this country? Well, around 40% of the U.S economy is government at all levels. Almost half. That aside even so, what are we spending all this money on? Well, the overwhelming majority of your tax dollars goes towards the $672 billion in Defense Spending. We need $2 billion dollar nuclear submarines. Another $250 billion goes to interest, all the money we are borrowing from China to run our country requires small payments back, naturally. It’s like the U.S owes student load debt, financing our degree in sociology that we aren’t really even going to use.
Show me a candidate that proposes to cut that budget in half, and I might consider going to a poll.
Mr. President, Why is Homeland Security a larger budget item than Agriculture, or Energy, and Transportation? How can you rebuild a nation in which you are spending far more money to defend than to build? I’m sure Sun Tzu would have some negative comments about this as well.
Obama isn’t going to change this, we’ve watched him ignore it for 4 years. His plan for the future relies on projections that don’t change this. He loves drones and war. General Patton argued that, “All real Americans love the sting of battle.” American’s love a winner, and will not tolerate a loser, the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.”
Well, we are losing right now, and will continue to lose.
