AND THE BAND PLAYED ON
And so it continues. As an out of control government spirals spending out of control, the debt ceiling has be adjusted. Those pesky laws should be amended so that the government officials, who really know what's best for us, are able to fund their vision of America. The annoying thing for them must be that someone, back in the day, saw fit to govern the government. Spending is required to be, oh I don't know, accounted for? Really?
What's really hard to take is that the Dems are in the process of raising the debt ceiling and hiding it. That's gutless and I hope they are held accountable for it. I have little hope that the Republicans will run anyone who will offer a true conservative alternative. I don't hold any water for politicians in general. I don't trust any of them to do anything other than perpetuate their own power. That's a sad fact.
One of my favorite presidents has always been Grover Cleveland the 22nd and 24th president of the US. He really knew the value of the word "NO." What endeared him to me was reading a biography about him in which I learned to respect his penchant for vetoing government spending for any number reasons. Most of all, he didn't think it was constitutional for the government to be involved in private spending.
Where are you now, President Cleveland?
