The United States of America is at a tipping point. It is past time we are told the truth and begin to solve the problems. The time for false hopes, hugs, and feel-good can-kicking is over. The talk is all about the ‘fiscal cliff’ and whether or not we can figure out a bipartisan solution to the economic realities that are going to happen sooner rather than later. The Benghazi scandal and the true motives of abandoning our own brave Americans in a time of need are undergoing a huge whitewash. The number of Americans on food stamps is at a record-breaking high of nearly 50 million and growing. The number of Americans who are un- or under-employed is now at 23 million, and the statistics are always shaded to favor those in power. When ObamaCare kicks in fully beginning now (after the election – how convenient), it will be exposed as the most dishonest 2700 pages of bull excrement that has ever been passed by our Congress; and that is a very challenging order. That bill alone will send us off into fiscal collapse. But can America handle the real truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
If the phony stimulus and fiat money counterfeiting schemes by Helicopter Ben Bernanke and his equally culpable cronies at the Fed were not allowed to influence the GDP, we would realize that we have been in a depression (not even a recession) for the last four years. Reality check: we have been lied to about the severity of our economic situation. Both parties are culpable. We have been serially deceived and now-addled dopers addicted to the drug of debt heaped on future generations. We cannot continue to borrow our way out of debt any more than a person can drink themselves sober. Yet, we continue to ignore reality. The truth, unlike the political agendas of all politicians, has no agenda. It is what it is. And yet we are continually bombarded with misleading data from the ruling class and their compliant hacks in the media. This is simple high school math, not politics. When exponential spending is happening faster than revenue growth, a fiscal dead-end is just around the next curve in the road. Reality also is what it is.
Americans are polarized and divided as never before in the 236 year history of our republic. We are now the Blue States and the Red States, contrary to Barack Obama’s promise to the country as he stood before us in Chicago’s Grant Park and accepted the majority decision of the electorate who chose him to be our 44th president. For a brief moment in time, even those of us who did not vote for him listened and hoped as his words attempted to bring us all together as Americans. Remember how he told us he would stop the ocean’s rise and heal the planet? Remember how he portrayed himself as the great uniter of all people?
“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America, a Latino America, an Asian America; there is a United States of America. “I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.”
