We have overspent – the money …it just WENT.
Now we have to find a way
To tax the folks a bit more today
Balance the budget we must do
and figure how to tax and screw…. the silent ones.
I challenge all to take the budgets from your state, county, city, and list out the items, one by one, that are supported by tax revenue.
Make that old fashioned *T* column over to the right of the itemized list.
You know the one – the Debit and Credit *T*.
Now as you look at each item in the budget and the dollar amount it is calling for I want you to put that amount in either the Debit or the Credit column to the right.
Debit in this case means it is NOT the function of government to provide and Credit means it is the function of government to provide. When I say it is or isn’t the FUNCTION of government to provide I am speaking,l of course, if that is an item covered in the Constitution. I point that out because there are far too many today that think government is the big TEAT for all to suck from. What few seem to realize is that when so many are sucking from that big TEAT there is little left to feed the cow to furnish that milk in the TEAT.
I will list a few items that I can’t find any support for them to be included in the budget of government. The overall list would be far too many pages.
- Health Care
- Defense (unless it is ACTUAL DEFENSE on American soil – No $$ for deployment off shore)
- Housing for politicians at all levels.
- No pensions for politicians
- LIMITED legislative sessions and only for the time to conduct LAWFUL CONSTITUTIONAL BUSINESS.
- Foreign Aid
- United Nations
After you list the $$$ that those few items account for – total each column (or in my case there will only be ONE column with numbers in it) and you will get an idea of how much we are taxed to pay for that aren’t Constitutional. CUT THOSE ITEMS – straight out and let the Private Sector do what they wish with them. When you analyze the QUALITY of government run operation you find there is a LOT wanting and more money is NOT the solution to the problem. GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM. REMOVE the government from those areas and the budget and our lives and our economy will improve right before your eyes.
If you want to see a nation rebound – then cut off the money that the Occupation Force is using to bankrupt this nation. CUT OFF ALL THAT GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN the does not belong under government operation.
Until We, The People, stand up and remove those Gutless Wonders that sit in fancy offices with staff and all things paid for them – they are NOT going to get serious about *governing* this nation as they are too busy snorting and feeding at the Hog Trough of our assets. We aren’t being *governed* – we are being dictated to and treated like slaves by those who think they are above us. They can’t do it if we rein in the out of control Gutless Wonders. Stand up to them and they WILL back down. We need to feed a lot of those who claim to be on our side a heavy dose of caffeine because they all seem to go back to sleep if they even THINK we have won some minor battle in politics. I’ve watched this for many years and the so called *CHRISTIANS* are the worst when it comes to staying awake – even in the middle of the battle. They are like the Children of Ephraim PS 78:1-10 (See below).
So, If you aren’t being aggressive in fighting this then you are not doing your part and the Fall of America will rest partly on your shoulders for failing to HOLD THE LINE.
You can’t borrow yourself out of debt and neither can this nation. We have allowed those to whom we handed the purse strings to destroy this nation and each of us by failing to WATCH over them and demand they OBEY their oath of office and the Constitution. Name one politician who has been in office more than one term whose Net worth is less than yours (providing you are one the middle Americans). Take a good look at the incomes they entered with and what they now have and how they live compared to those they WORK FOR (YOU AND I).
Cut those items from the budget – it won’t be BALANCED after making those cuts because there will be a HUGE SURPLUS…. which then needs to be returned to the Real People and not some government rainy day fund.
If you are reading this and saying this is impossible then it is impossible. Because it takes GUTS and COURAGE to stop a tyrant that has been running wild for so long and will not give up what he considers his without a FIGHT a real fight.

1. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2. I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
3. Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
4. We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
5. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
6. That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
7. That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
8. And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
9. The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
10. They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
