The “Broken Pipe” of Socialism

If we have to go down this November, and it is still pretty close in the polls, we have to do it screaming the obvious so that in four years when we come back, we can scream even louder “I told you so!”

The fact is; fellow conservatives, the bailout deal was anything but conservative.  The fact is, our own President endorsed it and our own Presidential Candidate went along with it. 

The only dissenter, or the one who took the position of normal Americans was Sarah Palin in the VP debate when she said that Americans on Main Street needed to take responsibility for their actions.

The video I posted above is the great Ann Coulter with Neil Cavuto.  They discuss the problems of sub-prime mortgages and liberalism’s hand in this. 

The mess in and of itself is not at all the fault of Republicans.  It’s a result of liberalism.

I feel sold out by McCain and Bush for coming in and approving this to give banks their way who are saying they aren’t loaning money to anyone unless the government comes through and hands them this money.  That’s sick.

The current crisis represents a leaking ceiling that required a patch.  Sadly, that patch cost us $700 billion.  But, the ceiling which holds the broken pipe of socialism will not only leak again eventually, but will finally out-and-out burst.  How much will that cost that?

Obama is adding one trillion dollars in spending virtually ripping the ceiling off altogether.

Just as Bush was magnificent at doing with foreign policy, the economic crisis required a long-term response to the broken pipe.  And while Democrats wouldn’t see the immediate results right away, we could easily be on the proper track of repair if we took the right attitude.  You cannot reverse major problems in a years time.

But sadly, now the work will be even more difficult if we have to endure four years of Obama.

  1. You have nothing to apologize for in being conservative especially if you are a true fiscal conservative. The problem is that I have yet to meet a true fiscal conservative. I’ve met people who call themselves fiscal conservatives, but who vote for social conservatives. They look away when corporate socialism runs rampant. I hear a lot about personal responsibility, but don’t see any conservatives accepting personal responsibility.

    I’m a progressive myself and agree completely with some some of the fiscal conservative theories and disagree with others. The truth is that true fiscal conservatism and free market theories are as hair brained as communism. If you leave out the human factor, they both work perfectly, however if you believe that greed and power ferment corruption, like I do, neither un-regulated capitalism or communism could ever work in the real world.

    Checks and balances need to be put in to keep both corporations, government and the people who run them in check. It’s a simple case of reality over fantasy.

    Neither Democrats or Republicans come away from this economic crisis with clean hands and the people not only in the United States but throughout the world also need to look inward and look at choices we’ve made in our own lives that contribute to the problem. Then we all must make some sacrifices for the common good in order to make things right.

    If you truly are against illegal immigration, then you must stop buying food that is largely harvested and processed by cheap undocumented workers. It’s a big sacrifice, but it can’t be denied that to buy produce or eat at restaurants or use contractors who hire illegal immigrants to save money is an endorsement the practice.

    When we insist on cheap products from China in order to own more stuff that we don’t need, yet rally against abortion in our own country, we are giving the go ahead for China’s own forced abortion policies.

    Change starts at home… whether you are a liberal or a conservative, it’s the choices we make in our own lives that filter through the rest of the world.

    That’s a great idea. Good luck getting people to buy in. I don’t mean to sound so negative. I really don’t. When I keep hearing about it’s all the fault of anyone but me it gets tiring. When I hear, make the other people suffer, I want mine first; it gets annoying.

  3. Good coverage on this. “Metro” one of Boston’s (and others, I guess) free papers carried this article the other day. Of course, here in the Northeast Caliphate they focussed on ..” I feel sold out by McCain …..” Needless to say, the local lemmings look at that as a Baraq endorsement.
    Wish I saved a copy to send, but the print blurred out in the sauna.
