None of the events of Friday night are the slightest bit surprising to economically aware Americans. Economists warned you. For my part, I warned my own readers repeatedly, and Governor Palin warned you too. On the Thursday before the debt ceiling surrender, Sarah Palin tried to cajole members of Congress to a firm stand.

I am with Mark and Sarah Palin 100%!
IF we are to regain our economic stability and retain the freedoms we all grew up with, and the generations before us fought so valiantly for, THIS IS OUR TIME TO STAND UP AND BE THE HEROIC GENERATION! WE MUST NOT FALTER AND WE CANNOT FAIL or this nation will no longer enjoy the LIBERTY AND FREEDOM millions of Americans have given their lives to preserve!
If everyone one of us talk to one other person today, either in person, by social media or on the telephone/cell phone and get them to agree that what we need are elected representatives that are willing to put politics aside and do what is right for this nation, then we will be on our way to regaining what we have slowly been loosing for the past century, but have really only realized in the past 3 years. WE MUST STOP THE PROGRESSIVE SLIDE DOWNWARD THAT THIS NATION IS ON! It can be reversed, but as Mark states, it’s not going to be an easy fix and a LOT of sacrifice is going to be required from ALL Americans. It’s past time for us to realize that this nation can no longer continue down the pathway that we’ve been on for far too long. Our elected representatives have for decades wasted FAR too much of our hard-earned tax dollars and look at the American citizens as their personal ATM machines! THIS HAS TO STOP!!
Every tax dollar must be put to good use, because that is how we have given it to the government, in good faith that it was going to be used to benefit the elderly, disabled children, or to feed the needy. NOT to pad the pockets of some corporate lobbyist, nor career politician!! NOR to allow the major corporations, like GE, to use a loophole to get away with making BILLIONS in profits only to skip out paying EVEN ONE PENNY in taxes!!http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/general-electric-paid-federal-taxes-2010/story?id=13224558 This is utterly ridiculous! This is the kind of thing that can and must be stopped! That and all the wasteful programs, hundreds listed by the GAO, Government Accounting Office, in a report turned in this spring, and not one thing has been done towards any of these wasteful programs. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/03/02/gao-report-best-gift-year-american-wants-wipe-waste/
Also, FOX News’ John Stossel had some great ideas as to which programs could be cut on his show last week. http://www.foxbusiness.com/on-air/stossel/blog/2011/07/29/take-chainsaw-budget-2
If we only had responsible representatives instead of the lot we have put in office, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now. We must look to a candidates qualifications, what they have done in the past and how they have handled themselves, not only the “celebrity” aspect of who this person is. Just because a person is endorsed by or promoted by a celebrity or group of Hollywood’s “elite” doesn’t mean they are good for our country, or even our state government!
Like Mark stated in his post, it’s going to be up to each one of us to begin this turn-around. We can all start in our own homes and businesses. Then branch out to our relatives and neighbors. One by one WE CAN REGAIN OUR AMERICA!!
Until next time, God BLESS!
