"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
This so-called "stimulus" package, all $850 Billion, 334 pages, and counting of it, contains very little by way of actual economic stimulation, and very much by way of massive pork barrel giveaways to be paraded as an "I got mine!" monetary victory in Senators' states and Representatives' districts -- all at taxpayers' expense."
"Here is a better question, why is government spending on make-work projects being considered as the best tool for stimulating the economy at all?
The same folks who complained spending on the war in Iraq was bankrupting the country--not true--somehow think a lot more federal spending on other stuff is going to be good for the economy--huh?
And it is not like there aren't better alternatives out there, some good options have been laid out by our economists at the Heritage Foundation.
What really bothers me is that we are going to throw a lot of money at what is not the government's business and then likely strangle funding on things that are government's business like providing for the common defense."
Silvio Canto, Jr.
