I will use this blog to do three things. One, provide a voice of opposition to the liberal controlled government. Two, to track their progress on promises they made to get elected (to see if they ever deliver.) Three, to vent, educate, and to work through my own frustration. Please read the ground rules if you wish to respond to this blog.

Why do they need so much money?

As I read through this "stimulus" bill I keep thinking to myself, why do they need all this money? Then today I read this quote:

The great French economist Frédéric Bastiat called politics “the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”

I want to put something in focus for you. I was a "Community Organizer" in a differnt life. Except I ran a grant to work with gang kids in the early 1990's.
  • My budget was more money then Obama's.
  • I employed more people than Obama did.
  • I got paid 1/10th of what he got paid.

When I was at budgeting meetings, I was told that whatever I did, I needed to expand my budget. I needed to figure out how to use anything, any crisis, any event, I could to get more money from the state, the feds, and from private donnors. That was the name of the game. "Expand while you can."

This governement is using your fears for power grab. But, I still can't figure out what the end game is.

Can someone please tell me what liberals gain if they win the country, but kill the economy?
