Terrorists Among Us!

by Richard H. Frank

The media feeding frenzy is gaining momentum as the leadership failure continues in Washington, D.C. to resolve the 2011 budget by Congress.  Listening to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and other Democrats expound upon the results of achieving fiscal responsibility is equal to taking food out of the mouths of children, condemning our senior citizens to certain death and ceasing of non-essential services constituting Armageddon is laughable.

Suddenly, Barack Obama and the Democrat leadership in Congress have religion when it comes to Government spending.  They all sing the same words from their hymnal of hypocrisy stating that out of control spending must be curtailed everywhere except for their ideological, Progressive pet programs.  How stupid do these arrogant, pompous individuals think “We the People” are?

The budget presented by the President contains $1.65 trillion deficit spending, the majority of which is driven by the Obama signature legislation “Obamacare” and his agenda to achieve green energy and curtail climate change through legislative fiat.

Our President and the Democrats in Congress could care less about senior citizens and the welfare of our children and grandchildren.  Their only agenda is to impose control over each and every individual in this Country until we achieve their utopian ideal.  Power and punishing achievement in the name of fairness through redistribution of wealth is their means to achieve their end.

Have the leaders of this Nation strayed so far from the values and principles upon which we were founded that we are now a nation of “takers” dependent upon the handouts provided by Big Brother to sustain our meager existence?  What will happen when the “takers” outnumber the “makers,” those that make this Nation survive? The answer to this question has been provided by both the President’s Commission on Deficit Spending and by Paul Ryan in the 2012 Congressional Budget.

Yet, there are the fear mongers that use the scare tactics of evoking children and senior citizens as the straw men to support their inaction to resolved our fiscal dilemma.  These people, aided by the liberal media, constitute the “terrorists among us.”

Americans are not children and are fully capable of making the sacrifices needed to bring our Nation back to prosperity and retire our debt.  The leaders we elect to represent us need to set ideology aside and get to work bringing our fiscal house in order.

It seems to me that they should begin with those Government services deemed unessential in the event of a Government shutdown to eliminate spending.  If unessential, why are they needed in the first place?
