Did you watch the debate last night? Did you want to poke yourself in the eye with an icepick?
You know, for the first time in my adult life, I'm really worried about what America is going to look like.
And you can quote me on that.
I don't want to be fined if I choose to not insure my children.
I don't want our taxes to have to shore up every lazy/uneducated homeowner, or pay for daycare for every working mother.
There's a lot of talk about choosing between "socialism, or socialism lite" with these candidates. I think it's worse than that. Marxism wants to destroy the family - parents in the workforce, children indoctrinated in institutions - and when you start taxing my husband to pay for my neighbor's daycare, that's exactly what's going to happen. We, who do not need such subsidies (homeschooling, for one), are also the ones who can least afford it (one income). And the idea of punishing true excellence will do more to push that excellence overseas than anything else. The top 5% (the ones who Obama claims don't pay their "fair" share?) already pay some 67% of taxes. Well, if that's not enough, what is? Would you work your hiney off to become part of that top 5% if that's your reward? Not me. Some time ago, when Obama was defending his capital gains tax hike, it was pointed out to him that when that rate was lowered, the government actually got more revenue from it, because everyone jumped into investing. Would he still hike it? Yes. Why? For fairness.
The man is sick.
With this "bailout" mess, what will the future be for my kids? Will my daughters have the option of staying at home with their kids? If families choose radical simplification (no electricity?) over putting mom in the workforce, will they lose their children?
How bad does it have to get before we can start over, with the Constitution in charge?
