So the Republicans unveiled there new Pledge With America today. I haven't actually read it yet, but I heard the basics while listening to Rush this morning before heading into work. All I can say is, from what I heard, it sounds an awful lot light Newt Gingrich's Contract With America that was drafted and signed in 1994.
If so, this country may yet be back on track within the next two months. After all, it states in writing exactly what the voters have been screaming about for the past two years. Cutting taxes, reigning in spending, and even canceling a sizable chunk of Obama's spending agenda. Namely TARP and all the bailouts. Wonderful, wonderful ideas all. Now, hopefully the new blood in Washington come November (knock wood) will be enough to purge D.C. of the stink that has been festering there for nigh on fifty years.
Of course, the Democrats and Leftist propaganda arm wasted no time in coming up with a clever yet insulting moniker for the pledge, calling it instead the "Plague to America", or some such thing. The George Soros funded Center for American Progress even has a story claiming that tax cuts and reduced spending will result in more debt and deficits. They have no credibility with me, of course, being that GS is nothing more than a globalist sociopath with aims at world domination (so Saturday Morning Cartoony, btw), so I'm not going to spend time lambasting them. Still, it bears resemblance to the attacks on Newt's Contract (Contract ON America, rather than WITH). Now, call me crazy, but if this IS just like the Contract With America from 94, wouldn't that mean that if implimented, it would have the same results? Just sayin'.
All of this, of course, is an attempt to smother once again the Age of Reagan. Ronald Reagan's tax cuts, as we all know, created over twenty million new private sector jobs, resulting in twelve years (Reagan 8, Bush 41 4) of straight economic growth, during which time poverty declined and the standard of living had risen for Americans all across the financial spectrum. As Jack Kemp used to say, a rising tide lifts all boats.
But it's not going to work. We the people are too well informed at this point. We the people see now first hand that socialism doesn't work. We the people want to, in short, throw the bums out and institute new blood in Washington. We're winning, too. That's why the spin machine is in overdrive and is doing so much so fast that even Obama's own supporters are tired of having to keep up.
Keep up the fight, fellow tin foil hat wearers. We're winning!
Continuing to Fight the Good Fight.
