Lying Lester Says The Nation Is In Crises Thanks To sTatism

The Constitution of the United States of America. Important to many, ignored and or misinterpreted by many as well, including Lying Lester himself. There are those who are strict constructionist who believe in following the letter of the document. And there are those who believe it is a living document and must change to conform to the changing times.

There is validity to only one of those positions. Although as an independent conservative, and one who places great stock in history and what it can teach us, Lying Lester wrongly tends to side with the strict constructionists more often than not.

It is becoming increasingly clear that our nation has become so polarized that ideology takes precedent over reason and common sense. It is clear that the fringe element of the the lIberal dEmocratic party and the fringe element of the conservative rEpublican party are controlling the debate.

Lying Lester suffers from none of those problems, as I, as a follower of Ayn Rand's Objectivism, lack both reason AND common sense. Yeah, I like to talk up the "fact" that I possess both of these qualities in spades (much more so than the common man or woman), but that is complete bullshit.

Anyway... back to the point I was making, which involves me asking if it is any wonder that our gOvernmemnt, as bad as it has become, is unable to draw logical and reasoned conclusions from valid data and make appropriate decisions that will resolve our national crises?

Call this a rant of a drunk old senior citizen like many do when I spout off and start speaking gibberish. But the reality is we are a nation in trouble. Both fiscally and ethically. No matter how much we equivocate, or attempt to avoid the "truth", it remains that both lIberals, dEmocrats, conservatives, rEpublicans, and every shade in between (except for Objectivist Libertarians such as myself) has a shared responsibility for our current situation.

Therefore, does it not stand to reason we have a shared responsibility to find reasonable and workable solutions to our shared problems?

The deficit problem will not go away by ignoring it. It is the result of many things, but the bottom line is we have spent more than we have. We have been doing so for a very long time. Nevermind the fact that you've got to spend money to make money or that a household budget can absolutely not be compared to a government's budget. These are two false talking points Lying Lester will continue to use to obfuscate the truth (the actual truth, and not the "truth" I prefer).

The national obligations, both to our people and our foreign creditors will not go away by themselves. Not raising the debt limit and defaulting on our "past obligations", IE: money previously borrowed and already spent, will not resolve our crises.

The answer seems fairly simple. We must significantly cut spending, sacred cows {such a the MIC} must to be on the chopping block, we must reform and simplify the tax code {including lowering taxes on "rich" people); we must eliminate regulations that make us non competitive (as not polluting the environment costs rich people money); we must encourage and give business incentives to stay in the USA, and we must reform the entitlements the parasites among us love so much.

We must also be willing to accept that even given three or four trillion in cuts over ten years we may need to accept that a revenue increase is necessary and inevitable. Although that "revenue" should come from taxing the lower strata (as I said earlier taxes on rich people needs to go DOWN).

Or we could continue on as we have. And we can join the likes of Greece, Portugal, and other nations that find themselves in very unenviable circumstances (even though that is a LIE, as the US being a country that controls it's own currency can NOT be compared to countries that do not).

The choices are ours. Lying Lester prays to the ghost of Ayn Rand that the citizenry somehow starts buying the lies of fools like him instead of doing what's right. Only then will the rich prosper even more and the poor and middle class suffer as they should.
