It was interesting to see so many fine people gathered to try and “fix”
what’s wrong with this country. But I have a question for those of you
that are attending or may attend one of these Tea Party rallies: Where
were you about eight years ago when the Bush administration decided to
attack Iraq for nothing but lies (where my son died for those lies)?
Why did you not get involved then? Where was your outrage then? Why
didn’t you speak out then? We, as a country, have spent over $717
billion fighting a war that could have been stopped before it began if
those same fine people would have spoken out then. Nearly 5,000
Americans have died as a result of invading a country that had done
nothing to us. If these same fine people would get outraged about the
wars we’re fighting maybe we could bring our troops home (and support
them when they get here) and use all that money we’ve been spending in
Iraq for our own country and our own citizens.
Some people seem to think the worst is over, and I hope they are right, but I’m very skeptical. There appears to be very few people in government who have any concept of what has caused our problem. As a result, most government actions have had very little benefit to the overall problems; in fact many groups are working hard on projects that will hurry the breakdown of what’s left of our economy.
To get down to basics, we cannot continue to spend more than we earn forever. Printing money won’t solve the problems, it only postpones them. Someday there will be a day of reckoning.
