How in the world did Democrats ever convince our populace that they were better stewards of our economy than conservatives? Not even on the Republicans' worst days during the Bush administration - when I regularly accused the Republicans of spending like drunken Democrats - did I invision the destruction that a far left President with a far left majority in Congress could do. We have a president who is intent on turning our economy on a path to socialism, more or less following a post WWII British model - instead of getting our economy on stable ground, reducing the debt, and improving employment. The only people who can call themselves moderates or independants at this point in time in our country are people who are not paying attention or who are simply unable to grasp reality.
Now today, our national debt tops $12 trillion - the legal limit of our debt. Not doing anything to reign in costs, our far left overlords intend to raise the debt limit another $1.8 trillion and keep spending us into oblivion. When will this existential threat to our country be brought to heel? 2010 cannot come soon enough. Will Obama set us on a path of no return before then? Certainly inflation and higher taxes are coming. With little to any room for more borrowing, the last year of recession that we just experienced may yet look like good times in another year or two.
