Just a reminder.

To my fellow comrades:

A talking head just made a great point, here it is, it took congress 2 years to allow the merger of two satellite companies,  the stock is less than a dollar now.  It took congress 1 week to give away 700 Billion with some tasty pork. 

 This year we have a clear choice: an expansion of govt. or the reigning in of govt., I choose the latter. 


Comments:
Our federal government should be about a tenth the size it is ... and it would still function efficiently.
Yes, Konane I agree, it could work with a lot less, there should be performance goals, time lines, budget constraints, the ability to dismiss poor performers, etc..........................................just like in the private industry.   One good question that is asked often is, "What do the local, state, and federal govts. produce?" What does the govt. do to get milk out of the cow, oil out the ground, cars out of the factories...............? Well yes they regulate the industries and limit monopolies..............allright well then lets keep the agencies that keep us safe and not allow monopolies..................but why do we still need lawyers? My point is that yes, the govt. would run fine at 10% of its current levels if they were held to the standards that private industry must operate at to stay competitive and profitable.

You see the govt. has no competition, is unapproachable, and is so entrenched that it needs to be overhauled and streamlined big time and held in higher esteem.

If the Bidenbamas win, the govt. wins, and gets fatter, slower, more bureuacratic, etc............

If the McCainapalins win, the govt. goes to fat camp! And fat camp ain't fun. Or they just might do one of those stomach staple jobbies, liposuction,................. The govt. will lose weight one way or the other with the McCainapalin diet.
Jarsan you should really read up on what the government does instead relying on one politician's opinion. Money is only a concept, and is supposed to be backed by gold. When and where did the government get more gold? Gold is not worth what it once upon a time was, that is why the dollar is not worth anything in the world anymore. Its only money so just print some more? Fat government and raising taxes is only a campaign slogan! How do you make up a defecit if you don't raise taxes? It doesn't matter who wins the government needs to go in a different direction, cuts will not solve the problems. You can't run the government like a company because its resources are not as limited. However I do like your point about accountability.
Jme0823 good point you can't run the government like a business because you have lawyers running the government. They make up rules as they go along and call them laws.
@jme0823 that is my opinion. You say:

"How do you make up a defecit if you don't raise taxes? It doesn't matter who wins the government needs to go in a different direction, cuts will not solve the problems. You can't run the government like a company because its resources are not as limited. However I do like your point about accountability."

So the change we need is to raise taxes? That is great change! That'll fix 'em. Did you figure that out all by yourself?

I'll repeat myself once again, the govt. produces nothing, its "RESOURCES" are the people and businesses that produce the products and services that the govt. TAXES. The govt. runs on the back of hard working Americans. What you are implying is that businesses have a limitation on "resources", what resources are you talking about? TAXES? MONEY they didn't earn? Gimme a break, the change you are talking about is a ploy by the dem/socialist/communist/facist party propagandizing the populace with empty promises. You are being fooled by a group that wants to put the govt. in every facet of your life, it is called socialism, it doesn't work, what it does is lower the standard of living for everybody, unemployment will go up further, and whatever dwindling freedoms we have left will be diminished further.

The way to increase tax collection is to promote business, make it easier to do business by lowering taxes and allowing for more growth.

Remember almost 50% of the people in the US don't pay taxes, just consumption taxes. The rest (businesses and the rest of Americans) pay all the fed., state, and local taxes.

A company like Exxon/Mobile pays something like $520,000 a minute in taxes! That is just one company. Biden kept talking about Exxon/Mobile thurs. night getting a 3Billion tax break for some exploration. Exxon/Mobile pays more than 500 Billion dollars annually in taxes! Is that the best he could do? Making out a US corporation to be a villian, cheap, very cheap Mr. Biden. They pay the salary of this senator and the salaries of all these jerkies, oh yeah, they also pay for their pensions and health care, how ungrateful.

Do you see how Exxon/Mobile is a resource of the govt.?

If people like Maxine Waters had her way she would take over the oil companies, the car companies, the health industry, etc. and run them like the govt., boy won't that be great, govt. is so efficient and knows so much about business. HA........ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

This is why Bidenabama is so dangerous to the well being of the US and its economy. Neither one of these bozos has ever run a business or led anything of meaning, substance, or consequence. A lawyer and a plageriser, that is what the leftist dems. are shoving down your throats. They are using class warfare and hate as a their platform to get elected. Blame, blame, blame, label, label, label, it is nauseating and has no substance.   JFK if he were alive today he would be a republican, I miss the Dems. of yesteryear.

McCainapalin are both proven leaders with tangible results. I prefer their track records because no one is hiding their track records and they are talking about how to fix things and make things better for everybody. This is the type of change we need. I miss Ronald Reagan.

Quoting Sarah Palin, "The fundamental strength of the American economy is it's workers."

Here is a summary of the bill cosponsored by John McCain to prevent what just happenned last week as result of Dems. blocking this bill. Biden bold faced lied about McCain being surprised about the subprime loan crisis. Chuck Hagel introduced it.

Cosponsors [as of 2008-10-04]
Sen. Elizabeth Dole [R-NC]
Sen. John McCain [R-AZ]
Sen. John Sununu [R-NH]


1/26/2005--Introduced.
Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005 - Amends the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 to establish: (1) in lieu of the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), an independent Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Agency which shall have authority over the Federal Home Loan Bank Finance Corporation, the Federal Home Loan Banks, the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac); and (2) the Federal Housing Enterprise Board.
Sets forth operating, administrative, and regulatory provisions of the Agency, including provisions respecting: (1) assessment authority; (2) authority to limit nonmission-related assets; (3) minimum and critical capital levels; (4) risk-based capital test; (5) capital classifications and undercapitalized enterprises; (6) enforcement actions and penalties; (7) golden parachutes; and (8) reporting.
Amends the Federal Home Loan Bank Act to establish the Federal Home Loan Bank Finance Corporation. Transfers the functions of the Office of Finance of the Federal Home Loan Banks to such Corporation.
Excludes the Federal Home Loan Banks from certain securities reporting requirements.
Abolishes the Federal Housing Finance Board.

Remember Fannie Mae is a GSE (govt. sposored enterprise), the Dems blocked this, the Dems blocked this, the Dems. blocked this.



Absolutely right about Bidenbamas Jarasan..

One of the many that biden has lied about. If the people of the U.S. elect NObama and Biden, what we see today, will be a walk in the park compared to the radical changes NObama has said he will do.
Also If something happens to NObama, Do the people of the U.S. think that Binkey will not make it worse??? Government will definately get huge ( Obese ) from their policies.
Jarasan, you make great points but how you get them accomplished is not what the McCain-Palin ticket is offering. The Obama-Biden ticket hasn't offered any ideas either. All politics are debateable. This is not about insulting, its about listening to other people's views. I know people who are die hard republicans who are not voting republican, I also know die hard democrats who are not supporting the democratic ticket. You talk like you know these guys personally and you would would bet the whole stack on them! Small businesses can't survive in this economy! So, you tell me how to make up a deficit? Cutting down the government will not do it??? It's simple, cutting stops the going out, but what's coming in?
Okay, what you are saying is cut the government, give big business tax breaks. That is what John McCain is proposing, I didn't make that up he has been quoted on that several times. That is not a slogan, you need to read the actual proposal, not what the opponent is using to distract or confuse you. Read McCain actual proposal if you can find it and comapre it to all the great information you have researched and found. F*&&^ the slogans read his proposal and then let's talk! Palin is a great woman but she is a joke of a candidate for VP. She hasn't answered one question yet. When she answers a question then maybe we can talk. All she talks about is energy, and how to get rid of our dependency on oil, but McCain wants to give them tax breaks. Please read up on it! If you want to talk about candidates, talk real not slogans.

If you don't take any more money in, and decrease what you are already taking in, wow! That is a great idea!!!
@jme0823 You are correct those aren't slogans, now that it is 7 days later, "Spread the wealth" that is not a "slogan" that is a "belief" of Barryobiden they want to spread it all over the place right out of your pockets into OPP (other peoples pockets).
