On November 28th Rush Limbaugh said:
The fiscal cliff is theater, nothing more and nothing less. It’s a game of political chicken, folks, and it will result in a winner and a loser. The media will act as judge. They will do everything in their power to influence the jury, which are the American people. Obama’s already gotten his name written in ink as the winner. Understand, Obama is going to win the fiscal cliff, but it’s a game of theater. There will not be any substantive entitlement reform. There will not be any spending cuts because there never are. There will be new enhancements to revenue with appropriate questions that people will not ask. But none of this fiscal cliff stuff has anything to do with solving the budget problem or any other fiscal problem that we have.
Rush is absolutely right. If Obama had any intentions of repairing the economy and making America a politically and economically solvent country again, he would have done that in his first term. He has other plans for this country and they do not include a well run free market system.
Is there anything that can be done to save our free market republic? I think there is one thing, but will it happen? In order to return to living by first amendment rights without Big Brother interference, a state or even a city or county would need to stop taking federal money. Any state or lesser government that would be daring enough to do this could regain control and return to a republic type government. Perhaps if one state would dare to do this, others would follow suit. Personally, I do not believe there is any other way!
The one avenue that I see on the horizon is the Tea Party. If this movement would go in the direction of ending federal dependency and if the leaders will educate enough people, perhaps it can be done. Imagine the freedom that would come when a government is no longer indebted to the federal government.
