The Most Important Election In American History!
While "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" continues to steer the national debate away from his record of dismal failures, the most important topic--in the collective American mind--is the economy. As noted in the quotes below, one Treasury Secretary and two presidents expound on federal spending, federal borrowing and the lack of public oversight.
Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton's Report on Manufactures, December, 1791:
And as the vicissitudes (changeability) of Natons beget a perpetual tendency to the accumulation of debt, there ought to be in every government a perpetual, anxious and unceasing effort to reduce that, which at any times exists, as fast as shall be practicable consistently with integrity and good faith.
President Calvin Coolidge's speech on the "Foundations of the Republic," to a group of labor leaders, September 1, 1924:
No matter what anyone may say about making the rich and the corporations pay the taxes, in the end they come out of the people who toil. It is your fellow workers who are ordered to work for the Bovernment, every time an appropriation bill is passed. The people pay the expense of government, often many times over, in the increased cost of living. I want taxes to be less, that the people may have more.
President Ronald Reagan's remarks to a meeting of the National Association of Homebuilders, May 16, 1983:
Yes, the deficit doctors have their scalpels out all right, but they're not poised over the budget. That's as fat as ever and getting fatter. What they're ready to operate on is your wallet.
President George W. Bush (43): In his two full terms--a total of eight years--President Bush raised the national debt by $4.899 trillion to $10.626 trillion on his last day in office. That equates to--on average--$5.103 BILLION per month in office.
"Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist:" In less than one presidential term--actually, just 40 months--our exalted ruler has increased the national debt to $15.735 trillion (www.usdebtclock.org) from $10.626 trillion on his first day as ruler, an increase of $5.109 trillion. The owe-bama increase equates to--on average--an increase of $127.725 BILLION per month in office. This means that our exalted ruler out-spent President Bush by 25 TIMES each-and-every-month in office!! And yet, owe-bama continues to blame President Bush for the current debt levels!!
Former Governor Mitt Romney: The "Clown Prince's" Harvard law degree is essentially cancelled-out by Governor Mitt Romney's Harvard law degree. This puts Governor Mitt Romney ahead--in education and experience--by one Harvard MBA; by his highly successful private business experiences; by his profitable management of the 2002 Winter Olympics.
We ALL gotta lotta thinkin' ta do ba'fore November!!
