Yes, I said slavery. And I’m not alone.
Mike over at Make An Effort wrote something today I wish I had.
I just heard with my own ears an attempt at moral relativism that should shock and disgust every individual in the Untied States.
Chuck Todd, while asking the President why he was not using the 14th Amendment to unilaterally raise the Debt Ceiling, attempted to equate the irresponsible spending with the Emancipation Proclamation… “it had to be done when congress would not act…”.
So spending money we do not have in morally equivalent to individual freedom?
Do these Leftists have no shame?
Therefore… being responsible with our money while admitting that we have spent ourselves into oblivion and must CUT of spending in order to remain solvent is equal to, what? Slavery? Indentured Servitude?
I would argue that continuing to spend money that we do not have is enslaving everyone and those not yet born to those who are loaning us 40% of every dollar being spent.
By continuing the rampant spending, our government is sentencing every American alive today and quite possibly the next generation — depending on when the crash happens — to a vain attempt to pay this debt off.
We’re also condemning future generations to a far worse quality of life, as the economy is on a Greece-like crash course, and rampant economic hardship always follows such a crash. In our case it will be that much worse, because there’s no one around to bail us out.
If the Republicans had any backbone, they’d say point-blank, no more debt limit increases, period. Unfortunately, with Boehner at the head, I doubt that the House GOP will have the spine. As I’ve said previously, Boehner’s spine resembles a Slinky® a lot more than it does a steel rod.
