America's credit rating has been dropped to AA+ status, equal with Belgium's and below England and Australia's. But don't worry: Obama's work is not done. Let him be clear: He'll not rest until we're Greece.
Standard and Poor's merely acknowledged the truth about how absurdly unsustainable is our national debt, and what is Obama's response? Not something honorable, like resignation and an apology. Not even an "Oops." Instead, S & P's made a "two trillion dollar mistake."
No, the mistake is America's.
Even if the federal government's total spending commitment will be $48 trillion instead of $50 trillion, what difference does two trillion make? The chains of oppressive, enslaving debt are still bound to our children and our children's children for generations, and they're still unbearable. This economic disaster was completely foreseeable -- and avoidable -- but the American people continued to elect and re-elect thieves and destroyers.
When every act an executive performs undermines his organization, only two possible explanations for that malfeasance exist: titanic, colossal, unprecedented, cataclysmic incompetence or intent.
Regardless of why, Obama and his fellow statists have been working diligently to bankrupt and disarm America, and they've succeeded now in crippling our economy, an achievement King George III, Hitler, Khrushchev, and Usama bin Laden only dreamt of.
How much time do we have left? Why is no one calling for impeachment? Where is the outrage, America? No one's going to save us from ourselves; our enemies are drooling at our demise and our rivals are grinning smugly behind our backs.
How much more evidence does the electorate need -- do leftists themselves need -- that Socialism/Communism/Marxism is suicidally destructive? Whom do they think will protect them when the savages are at the door? When you bind the strong man, who is left to protect you?
We had a Republic, for as a long as we kept it.
*The current $14.5 trillion debt + the $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling (how long do you think it will take our elected tyrants to squander that?) + the additional $10 trillion in 10 years = $27 trillion in suicidal debt
