Okay… Barack’s first speech since the election, and it is about how we’re going to use the government to spend our way out of the recession. The government is going to spend a TRILLION dollars on stupid projects, and somehow that is going to make everything better.
If anybody thinks this is a good idea, I’m guessing that you didn’t major in Economics or Accounting. This is bad. This is dumb. It was bad and dumb when George Bush did it, and now doing it with even more money isn’t going to work. It didn’t work when FDR did it either, despite the propaganda that you got spoonfed in high school history. That money is being taken from somewhere, and that somewhere is like the .gov is putting it on some massive credit card that our kids and grandkids are going to get to pay until they die.
The last time the government went this far out on a limb was to fight the biggest war in history to develop the greatest war machine of all time and to harness the atom, with the very path of mankind at stake, and this time it is because we’re experiencing minor discomfort primarily caused by news propaganda and 7% unemployment. As much as the democrats like to bitch about Ronald Reagan’s massive deficit spending, he was at like 8% of the GDP, and we’re going to move that to 11% or 12%. Ronnie was only trying to win the Cold War, you know, the one where evil communists were prepared to clense us from the face of the world with nuclear fire. This times is more important because we need the government to spend that much money so stupid people who couldn’t afford houses in the first place get to keep their houses, and American automakers can make substandard cars.
For all of you that voted for Hope and Change, get ready, because here it comes. Your change is going to be to socialism, only with a new frilly wrapper. The hope comes in where people like me hope and pray that the idiots in charge don’t try to make a bad situation better and end up destroying the US in the process.
And you might come back and say that it isn’t socialism. Really? I’d love to hear how. And when you can’t tell me how this diverges from the fundamental philosophy of Karl Marx, you can tell me that “But… but, George Bush sucked too!” Yes! I know. George Bush sucked, no kidding. John McCain was an idiot. Thanks, let’s move on to something that won’t destroy America now.
