Just for the record to my readers, I would like to point out. I have never pinned my hopes on this group of congressional representatives. I can see why now more than ever I should never put my faith into weak-kneed politicians who like to make deals with the people most hated. This is the reason why many democrats are not in office anymore. We the people have nothing in common with them. Especially the President. The people put the Republicans in power in Congress to be a stopgap against the president and his agenda.
Now with this talk on the debt ceiling and spending. The deal they are trying to make is obligating a future president and congress to spending cuts with a balanced budget. That is what the president wants. He wants to borrow billions or trillions to fund his monster called big government trying to obligate the next president and congress to spending cuts. Not going to happen, it never works, and just a public relations stunt. Even if they agree to it. It does not mean a future congress and president will honor the agreement. It is just smoke and mirrors.
Speaker of the House Boehner better learn he was placed there to stop the spending. We want no more borrowing and we do not care if the government shuts down if they cannot come up with an agreement or a budget. There is war inside the Republican Party between big government neo-cons and the tea party people for sound money and stopping the growth of government. No raising taxes and not more borrowing is the mandate of the people who sent them to Congress. We want real cuts in spending. Maybe not raising the debt ceiling will save the value of the dollar and stabilize the currency since the government has to live within its means. That is if the Federal Reserve Bank can stop printing money.
To Mr. Speaker Boehner who talks a lot, he does nothing, and caves in. It is not hard to say no, to what Obama wants. It is time you do your job and stop these illegal wars. No more deals and there is no coming to an understanding with a socialist. The American people have nothing in common with these authoritarians and big government politicians. Neither should you. I would not waste my time with them in talks. No deals and no compromise whatsoever or there will be consequences. The moment you cave in and make a deal. That shows the Obama White House your weakness. Before the Speaker of the House knows, and it is too late. Mr. Boehner will be eating out of the President's hand.
This is not the time to show any weakness to the White House. There is no figure in history that ever was great who compromised. Sen. Henry Clay called the great compromiser. His deals brought us to a civil war over time. True leadership comes from holding the line and not giving in to the pressure. True leaders stand for what is right no matter what the other side does. True leaders always prevail when they do not budge. This is what makes good leaders.
The vote comes up for raising the debt ceiling in the House of Representatives this August, the decisive moment. If Speaker of the House Boehner and the rest of the house leaders. They clap and pat themselves on the back for being swell people because they made an agreement to allow the president to borrow what he wants in return cut spending. Same old song and dance routine were nothing changes and always stays the same. That is not leadership. This is the time we need not just give Boehner the boot out of the Speaker's Chair. Let kick him out of Washington DC. He has been the problem all this time, not the solution. No more borrowing, no more excessive spending, which is why we are in such a mess as it is and until the borrowing stops now. Then we can expect nothing will change.
