We are being deceived and misinformed by the fawning, liberal “mainstream” media. The new Democrat government machine is trampling freedoms and fortunes locally and nationally. Friends, we are now in a war – the productive private sector versus the unproductive government elitists. And the elitists think they know what’s best for us.
The Associated Press, the New York Times, the Boston Globe and the obsolete TV networks (NBC ABC, CBS, MSNBC, etc.) are blindly swallowing up the propaganda spewed by the elitist politicians and regurgitating it to us without question. “No more earmarks,” crows the President as he signs a budget containing thousands. The media reports, “No more earmarks.” “We’ll cut the deficit by 50 percent,” boasts the President, while debt obligations for a bogus $1 trillion “stimulation” plan explode the national deficit to more than all deficits combined since George Washington. The media “reports” the deficit will be cut in half.
The government’s meddling in the economy, higher taxes, make-work spending and trade protectionism caused a worldwide depression in the 1930s. But today, the liberal media “reports” that the same moves will somehow get the economy growing again. Seventy-nine years ago these actions produced starvation, misery and soup lines.
