Between "Clown Prince" obama's 2008-esque vacillations and Paul Ryan's partially delineated campaign tax proposals, all I know for sure is that the policies of the past four years HAVE NOT WORKED, at least in favor of the 52% "pulling-the-wagon!" I--like many conservatives--believe that the regime IS reaching it's goals. This, from "obama's America:"
"obama is not merely the presiding instrument of American decline, he is the architect of American decline. He wants America to be downsized. He wants Americans to consume less, and he would like to see out standard of living deline relative to that of other nations.... He is qauite willing to saddle future generations of Americans with crippling debt; he has spent trillions of dollars toward this end, and if he had been permitted, he would have spent trillions more. He has show no inclination, and ha no desire, to protect America's position as number one in the world; he would be content to see America as number 18, or number 67, just another country seated at the great dining table of nations."
In an Investors Business Daily op-ed piece a couple of days ago, Paul Sperry made the argument that tax cuts actually do promote increased revenue to the U.S. Treasury. Mr Sperry buttressed his argument with graphs illustrating that tax cuts during the Kennedy, the "Ronaldus-Magnus," and the George W. Bush administrations which forced the aforementioned treasury increases.
The Romney-Ryan proposed tax policy--while far more detailed than anything obama blathers about--is a bit sketchy on details. The Romney-Ryan proposal covers spending reductions, welfare reform, health and retirement security, budget enforcement as well as the highly contentious tax reform. With any tax proposal, the then-president can do little more than author his preferences and propose them to the Congress. All spending bills, including the annual budget--when the U.S. Constitution is adhered to--must originate in the House of Representatives. The House members debate the pros and cons of the executive branch's proposal, usually add lots of pork-barrel spending and send it to the Senate for their additions to the pork-barrel spending, debate, alteration, Senate approval, then Congressional approval and on to the President for signatorial approval into law.
In the up-coming Romney presidency, I see more co-operation between both houses of Congress; between the Congress and the President. In a second obama Regime, I seen more of the same failed policies--and without the constraints of a future re-election--the "Clown Prince's" destruction of America will only get exponentially WORSE!! The fact that "Clown Prince" obama couldn't get a budget passed into law for his entire reign must be the only budgetless time in modern American history!!
