CONGRESS: A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
By Sharon Sebastian
In addition to bigger government and more debt, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) sees a threat to our nation’s security as a result of the debt-ceiling compromise now known as the Budget Control Act of 2011:
“If fully implemented, the consequences to our nation’s defense infrastructure would be severe. And, these deep cuts would come at a time when threats to our nation are increasing, not declining. What has happened to the party of Reagan that viewed the primary purpose of the federal government was to provide a strong national defense?”
As moderate Republicans lose ground to the Progressive left with every negotiated “crisis,” it is important to review what else is bubbling to the surface. Early on, the debt ceiling debacle revealed the good ol’ boy RINO network again bowing to the liberal left’s agenda. Obama and the DEMS repeated the same hyped-up artificial deadline strategy to “pass something” that they used with TARP, the Stimulus and Obamacare. The crisis mentality, for which Obama is now famous, has now resulted in a phony remedy to America’s debt and spending crisis. Americans expect economy-busting, job-killing policies and smoke-and-mirror solutions from the Democrats. It has become apparent that many ranking Republicans have become indistinguishable from Progressive Democrats in the rush to pass a 75 page document that was not thoroughly vetted in detail. Americans no longer view RINOS as just having their heads in the sand, but as active participants in this nation’s demise.
The most dangerous result of the debt ceiling debate is the formation of an uber-committee, made up of six members of each party, which will recommend what government programs will get cut and which programs will get paid. By what Constitutional authority? Having some ‘ol dog Republicans on the committee brings no comfort. They are the ones that the newly elected conservative breed fought tooth and nail to keep from again capitulating to Obama and the left. Even if Congressman Paul Ryan were appointed to the panel, he would likely be demonized Obama-style and out voted. The new bi-party super committee will have unsettling authority to submit budget cuts, such as the pentagon’s, or create a basis to raise taxes with little to no accountability to the American people. Both houses reportedly get a vote up or down on whatever legislation the super committee “decides” to submit. With inevitable stalemates followed by the Republican propensity to fold, opponent’s fear that the potential outcome is that twelve members of Congress could essentially sway national policy via selective “recommendations.” Once in the Senate, reportedly reconciliation rules will require only 51 votes to pass, thereby potentially giving an increasingly radical, socialist Democrat-controlled Senate unprecedented power over the debt and deficit of this nation. As the dust now settles -- the games have been played, the people have again been had and Obama sleeps well at night.
The Obama spiral towards socialism is further abetted. Republicans who are befuddled or refuse to acknowledge that Barack Obama’s policies are doggedly socialistic either deceive themselves or the American people. All of them know that Barack Obama was schooled in the ways of radical socialist Saul Alinsky. All of them know that the once great American middle class is falling to its knees under Barack Obama. All of them know that the outstanding inroads made by Blacks and Hispanics into the American middle class are evaporating under Barack Obama. All of them know that the left’s socialist agenda damages every American regardless of age or color. Obama’s educational mentor, Saul Alinsky, not only knew it but preached it. Alinsky is cited as writing that the surest way to solidify power is to destroy the middle class. He taught that as an impoverished people become increasingly dependent on the government for their welfare, they forego their rights and protections from that government. Alinsky taught and Obama learned that crushing debt, wasteful spending and over taxation could bring this great nation to its knees. For Alinsky, a weakened, underfunded military is a coup de gras.
Message to congressional sell-outs on both sides of the aisle: “A change is gonna come” when the American voters see you at the polls in 2012.
