Obama will not take a check. You must sign over your homes, your 401k’s, the pink slip to your autos, all your savings…. come on America, be patriotic, pay Obama what you owe him. It amounts to $534,000 per person, so you better get your accounting in order.

Where does this $534,000 number come from? USA Today says that a little known government report pegs the government’s unfunded mandates at $61.6 trillion. Yes, that’s trillion with a “t.” That is the amount of money that all the un-Constitutional spending by the federal government will cost the taxpayers if it all continues to be mandated by law, court orders, regulations, and back room deals made by grasping government officials.

As USA Today notes, this sort of spending without assets to back it up is the sort of chaos that would sink a corporation and force it to declare bankruptcy. But government ignores common sense and legitimate accounting and continues to spend more than it has without a hitch in its gittyup.

And what does this mean to each of us?

The $61.6 trillion in unfunded obligations amounts to $534,000 per household. That’s more than five times what Americans have borrowed for everything else — mortgages, car loans and other debt. It reflects the challenge as the number of retirees soars over the next 20 years and seniors try to collect on those spending promises.

USA Today says it came by these numbers using “standard accounting rules,” so that means that it likely is way under counting the mess we are in.

What is the solution? We need to get back to common sense government. Get rid of the unfunded mandates. Get rid of thousands of government employees. Fire them summarily. Close their offices. Shutter these unnecessary agencies and fire everyone in them. Get rid of the Dept. of Education and a hundred others. Then get rid of half of every other department that we do need. Stop bailouts, so-called stimulus spending, overseas junkets, congressional pensions, free offices for life for past presidents, get rid of all the free automobiles, cell phones, computers, and other perks that government workers get. If you are a government worker outside of the military, it is far more likely than not that your job is unnecessary and you should be fired. I don’t really care what you do. Go get a real job.

We need to return to the limited government that the founders envisioned. It really is pretty simple.

Now realize this: Obama intends to add trillions and trillions more to this debt by nationalizing our healthcare system. Smart, isn’t it? What part of “stop digging” don’t leftists understand?
