Ron Paul: "We Will Default Because The Debt Is Unsustainable" | RealClearPolitics
Ron Paul is pointing out that Emperor Obama (and the little Emperors in the Congress) have no intellectual clothes on. He describes the problem in detail, how we got here, and what is needed to solve the problem. Instead of actually tackling the problem, most of Washington wants to play the same smoke-and-mirrors game that got us into the economic hole in the first place! The only solution that Obama and the drone puppets in the Democratic party is: "SPEND MORE! KEEP SPENDING". This from a party that couldn't even PASS a budget for TWO YEARS! The Republican leadership and old guard has been no better than the Dems. They are so frightened of their own re-election shadow that they are willing to 'compromise' themselves into an un-winnable position of full capitulation to the free-spending ideologues that are ruining this once-fine country. And they are (once again) setting themselves up to TAKE THE BLAME! The only voice of sanity and reason are the freshmen 'Tea Party' Congressmen and Women who were mandated by the voters to end this fiscal insanity.
The strangest part of this whole debacle is that the only ones making fiscal sense, and advocating a REAL plan are the ones excoriated by the media for being 'crazy', 'fringe' and various other ad-hominem appellations. Since when is living within your means, spending at or less than what you earn, and balancing the budget 'crazy'? What's really crazy is either those in denial of the REAL crisis (who only want to extend the status quo- until it collapses), or- even scarier- those who truly want to destroy our economic system, only to replace it with a 'fairer' system of 'wealth redistribution'. It's time to pick a side, America- the status-quo road to ruin- or the hard-choice path to fiscal sanity. Any so-called 'compromise' is a well-intentioned path straight to economic and social ruination for America.
