Wake up America, you are being robbed by your government

To the Editor:
With the election over and, 2022 grinding to an end, the national debt clock quickly passes 30 trillion dollars. As I watched this happen a John Adams quote comes to mind. He said: “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.” Could this “1826” quote take place before our very eyes and we’re too blind to see it? Ben Franklin answered over 200 years ago when he said: “He was so learned that he could name a horse in nine languages; so ignorant that he bought a cow to ride on.” So, did the election change anything?
What does 30 plus trillion in debt really mean? Do the citizens of America, be they Liberal, Conservative or Moderate understand? Do we somehow think the government can create wealth out of thin-air? As we sit in our three-bedroom two-bath home, eating, drinking and marrying, most could care less. Give a voter a welfare check, a free cell phone, cash for their clunker, food stamps, Section 8 housing, free contraceptives, Medicaid, 99 weeks of unemployment, free medicine, and they will vote for you the rest of their life — “even after they’re deceased.” Surely our government will fix the problem! After all they’re people of honor; — “aren’t they?” How do we account for the debt crisis in other countries if national debt doesn’t matter? Can this problem be fixed or have we gone too far? What kind of world will we leave generations to follow if they must pay back this debt? As I ponder these questions I wonder what I would do if I were in debt more than I could pay. Would I continue to run-up the amount and leave it to my kids to pay? Would I rob my neighbor? Would I get a printing press and counterfeit money? All this would put me in direct competition with the government and, a new home behind bars. So how will these tyrants solve the problem?
For starters they have no problem pushing the debt down the road and onto the backs of our children. They have no problem printing fiat money and last they have no qualms about robbing taxpayers.
The easiest and least intrusive of the three is to just start the presses and print more money. The presses are running wide open as I write this letter and like Hitler’s Germany, and all other countries that used this method, we can expect the same result.
Pushing the can down the road by borrowing from China or any other country willing to lend puts the burden on our children. At what point will our children be speaking Chinese or Arabic, our daughters wearing Burkas and our Constitution replaced by Sharia law or the UN?
That brings us to the third solution, robbing the taxpayer. Winston Churchill summed it up best when he said: “I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.”
Like most Americans I’m not opposed to supporting my country. I served in the military during the Vietnam conflict. I would pay my last dime to save my country. So why are so many so upset about paying taxes today?
As I write this letter the streets of the middle-east are ablaze with radicals burning the American flag while congress decides how much foreign aid money to send them. The FBI has become the KGB. The IRS is getting 87,000 new gun toting agents “to help us fill out our taxes”… When I think of all the ways this bunch of thugs steal and waste my hard earned life I could fill the pages of this newspaper.
Yes, I would gladly send my money to help my country but not to fund a bunch of America haters. Is it any wonder Mark Twain said: “Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” The real idiots are the folks who keep sending this vermin back for more. And to think we pay these Cretin’s $3,400.00 per week for the rest of their lives. It’s hard to believe but there are apparatchik lemmings who look forward to jumping out of bed to head-out to work to pay this ineptocracy government! Did the election change anything? No, it just re-arranged the deck chairs on the Titanic.
There’s only one solution to our country’s problem: “You cannot get the water to clear up until you get the pigs out of the creek.”
