President Obama and our economic future
It is my opinion that the swing voters who gave the Democrats the last two elections were not hoping for traditional liberalism.
They were hoping that an actual change in the way Washington, D.C. does business would take place. President Bush did not lose his popularity because of failure to advance Big Government. Elections matter, so I tend to take a "wait and see" attitude when a new president has only been in office a short time. Yet, the economic future is more important than any politician’s immediate ambitions. Will President Obama help or hinder our economic future?
The "stimulus" package presently being sold to the American people hurts families in the long run, especially the very college age students who are so enthusiastic for him. The process of putting this package together has been less than open. The President has claimed that it contains no earmarked pork, but that it simply untrue. Also, the package contains direct threats to the relationship between American citizens and their healthcare providers. The Republicans are expected to vote in the United States Senate on a bill that they have not even been able to see ahead of time.
There is a solution to the disappointing performances of many elected officials in both of the two major parties. If we, the people, we revive a widespread fascination with the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, this will reverse our national addiction to socialism, and freedom will ring again! This is one reason why I see the Constitution Party as worthy of every citizen’s consideration, and urge every neighbor to read this party’s website.
