Fifteen trillion dollars.
Today, the US National debt passed the fifteen trillion-dollar mark. That’s quite a record.
Welcome to the gates of hell.
If you want to see our—your debt—in action, here’s the US National debt clock live. I stared at it for about one minute and my head started to pound.
Interest on our debt represents about a third of the cost of Social Security. In about 20-years the interest will exceed the cost of that program.
You can confiscate the wealth of every millionaire and billionaire in America and the money wouldn’t even begin to make a dent in the national debt.
Taxes are not the answer. They are simply a ploy in Obama’s class war against the free market.
Another horrifying number: the US government is now gobbling up 40% of our GDP. This means that trillions of dollars from our economy are used merely to feed itself—a bloated series of interlocking, self-perpetuating bureaucracies.
These government agencies do not produce wealth, they do not innovate. In fact, they accomplish the exact opposite. They devour our wealth, and impede product and market innovation through monstrous mazes of regulations that only give birth to unemployment and the loss of wealth.
If implemented, Obamacare will bury us.
The Obamacare statutes contain 961 pages. And don’t forget, Congressional bills are printed with wide margins in a small font. There are, get this, 1,093 pages of regulations. The regulations are 270% as long as the statute itself. And the 1.1 million words in Obamacare regulations published so far are only a fraction of the regulations yet to come. Regulations always give birth to more regulations in order to repair the damage caused by the original regulations. This cycle perpetuates itself ad infinitum. Witness the old Soviet Union.
Within those sloppily written 2,700 pages of proposed regulations are thousands of poison pills that will raise the cost of health care on every American, force excellent physicians to retire early, medical practises to shutter their doors, and deprive the elderly and most needy of proper medical care.
Health care in America will devolve into a mirror of the DMV and the US Post Office.
Further, Obamacare will solidify the federal government’s dominion over your body. If the government controls health care then, by default, it has the right to—the elite call it a benevolent obligation—tell you what you can and cannot put in your body. Say goodbye to French Fries and all those yummy but evil Transfats.
The state does not want to bear the costs of the medical care you incur by ingesting food the state deems dangerous. If you resist by eating what you wish—or, gasp, smoking—you are an enemy of the state, an enemy of the people.
The Orwellian language of Obamacare should send a chill up the spine of free people. There are no doctors or nurses. They are “Health Workers.”
Europe is burning, their welfare states, founded on universal health care and a work force of government employees, have finally imploded. The money to support these delusional economies does not exist. It never existed. It was, is, and always will be a utopian dream.
And when utopia is the goal, hell becomes the inevitable destination.
America, under Obama and the Democrats, apparently like what they see because they are guiding America towards the exact same fate.
The OWS movement is just the tip of Obama’s spear; the waging of a ruthless campaign of class warfare whose strategic goal is that you and I, our children and grandchildren, are no longer free, self-reliant citizens but entitlement supplicants, dependant on the machinery of big government ru by a single political party.
