Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) may be the targets of the ′Surrender Caucus′, but they do have one loud supporter. Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin tells the GOP to ′woman up′ on the government shutdown and ObamaCare debate. The U.S. Senate is about to take up the House continuing resolution, CR, which would defund the Affordable Care Act. Harry Reid is lining up his party to defeat it and block a potential filibuster by Cruz, Lee and Rand Paul (R-KY). The RINO brigade, led by John ′The Old Faker′ McCain is also busy whipping Republicans to stop the ′wacko birds′. But to Sarah Palin, the GOP Establishment is ′gutless and rudderless′, and compromising far too much.
We can debate endlessly about the merits of a government shutdown. Barack Obama and his henchmen would like you to think that this sort of legislative pressure has never happened before. In fact, it has, about some 20 times against Republican presidents since the Eisenhower administration. The U.S. government was essentially shutdown for brief periods when the fearless Newt Gringrich battled Bill Clinton to get a balanced federal budget. There were few if any genuine hardships caused and the effort succeeded.
Poll after poll shows that the American people are becoming more disturbed by the ever increasing size and power of the federal government, as well as the growing National Debt. The Federal Reserve, through its program of quantitative easing, now holds more debt than all of the debt accumulated by the government from George Washington through the Bill Clinton administrations. Obama and other Liberal idiots like Nancy Pelosi insist that there is no spending problem in Washington DC. They like to call budget-minded citizens anarchists or political arsonists. But the truth is that Liberal Democrats are the real arsonists, burning the nation′s finances at both ends.
So who do you believe? The mealy-mouthed John McCain? Barack Obama? Harry Reid? Nancy Pelosi? Or do you support Ted Cruz and Mike Lee? Are you happy that Sarah Palin tells the GOP to ′woman up′? Have you had enough of being pushed around by Liberals over the government shutdown and ObamaCare? Is it time for us to take back our nation from the No-Low-Information-Voters?
