Spending is the Problem

Spending is the Problem

This week the House presented a budget that attempts to address the most significant issue of the times. The deficit. The deficit must be addressed sooner rather than later. Our elected officials, who were elected to look out for the best interests of the tax payers, are still spending money they don’t have.

That tells us two things, they don’t recognize that the deficit is the most critical problem we have, or they just don’t care about our needs and are putting their needs before ours.

We are the tax payers, they work for us. We vote and put them in office. They should be loyal to us and our needs. When they can’t recognize the deficit as the most critical issue of our times, they’re too stupid to be in office. We should fire them as soon as possible.

When they recognize the deficit as the problem and still spend like drunken sailors, they’re selfish and insubordinate and should be fired as soon as possible.

The common theme here is that they have to go.

Politicians have stayed in office and built a base of lobbyists and supporters who back them financially and with voters always use the money that they don’t have to build that base. Public funds that have not been confiscated from us yet are the deficit. Money that they spend in ways that boggle our minds and serve no purpose is the problem. Members of the elected classes are not showing us a sense of urgency.

They must stop spending; they have to put a tourniquet on the wound. When someone is wounded so badly that they blood is flowing wildly, you must use a tourniquet and stop the flow of blood at the risk of losing the limb. That’s a drastic move that’s necessary to save a life.

That’s where are government is, our deficit is so serious and we need a tourniquet. They must stop the flow of blood as drastically as they can as soon as they can.

Some of our elected empty suits still see public finds as a way to further their own agendas. They must be voted out first. The public funds are for the common good. We can’t let them continue to spend the money like It comes from a bottomless pit.

The cuts must be deep and severe. There will be very difficult choices to make. There will be a lot of screaming and arguing over where to make the cuts that must be made. It’s not going to be easy or even pretty. The process must start soon. Men and women of great courage will have to make this happen and the media who serves little purpose other than to further the agendas of some politicians, will demonize them as they try to do what’s best for the country.

We are bleeding badly and we need the tourniquet.

We have to find and vote for men and women who understand this. It’s an urgent problem that cannot wait. Candidates who do not demonstrate the sense of urgency that spending cuts must be addressed now and not later are the candidates we must vote for.

The problem is getting worse every day with every dollar they spend. They must fix it NOW not later.
