The lies of sequestration

The Obama administration doesn’t lead, it politics from created crisis to created crisis.

Things that you couldn’t do before? Like disarm the American people:

and bankrupt the country.

A year ago, Obama demanded that Congress pass sequestration. Now he’s blaming them. Check out this video if you don’t believe me:

Too bad video lives forever, eh? Professional liars at work.

Rush has this situation nailed in his piece For the First Time in My Life, I’m Ashamed of my Country. It’s a bit long, but well worth the read. Rush puts things into proper perspective. His bottom line says it very well:

What’s happening here, folks, is we are being played for fools and being suckered — suckered into supporting the never-ending expansion of government, the wholesale destruction of the private economy. Everybody who joins in this debate under the premise that Obama puts forth, as well as debating the politics of this nonsense, is just being used to cover up what’s actually going on. Now, what’s going on is no great conspiracy. It’s no mystery. We’re spending much more money than we have.

The government is getting inexorably larger.

It’s less and less efficient at accomplishing anything. We’re creating more and more dependents. We’re robbing people of their dignity and humanity and of their opportunity to realize their dreams as they turn their lives over to the government. It’s like a never-ending cycle. The government makes the private sector smaller. There are fewer job opportunities. There’s less money in the private sector, less opportunity to accrue wealth. Income taxes and others threaten to go higher; they do go higher.

That describes exactly what Socialists do to countries. Check out Greece, Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Venezuela, etc. Venezuela should be one of the richest countries in the world with all the oil they have, but Chavez has run the economy into the dirt with his Socialism.

The Republican House offered two alternatives, in addition to passing a budget every year as required by the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The Democrat Senate hasn’t passed a budget during the entire Obama Administration, in direct violation of the law. That would be the definition of a criminal, except in their Socialist distopia, the only criminals are honest, hard-working, gun-owning, God-fearing citizens who disagree with their Socialism. The Senate’s failure to obey the law has had significant negative impacts on the Department of Defense due to the associated legal limits under continuing resolutions.

My only fear is that the politicians pushing their end-of-the-world lies are also in a position to force some of their lies come true. The political appointees in each department can furlough employees making it seem like a disaster, when in fact there is no need to furlough anyone as Rush points out. It’s a bad situation when the government can make extreme threats and lies a reality.

But sequestration is not the end of the world. Don’t believe the lies. Get some popcorn, sit back and watch the liars work their political machines. Obama voters fell for the lies two elections in a row. Now it’s time for them to eat it.
