The United States is bankrupt, thanks to wasteful spending by our politicians on both sides of the aisle. Bush spent like a drunken sailor, or better yet, like a Democrat. And Obama? He's taken it to a new level. Our national debt is unsustainable.
We need to vote the majority of our politicians out of office, and let them get a good feel for what it's like to be among the unemployed. Let's vote in men and women who aren't afraid to say "No" to wasteful spending.
Our leaders need to take a few tips from Calvin Coolidge who cut spending in half and lowered taxes dramatically. He also made the following wise statements:
“Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.”
“Don’t expect to pull up the weak by pulling down the strong.”
Just as Moses led the Israelites out of their bondage to Egypt, surely, there must be another Calvin Coolidge somewhere in our country who could lead us out of our bondage to debt.
