On Friday, President Barack Obama told workers at a Ford plant in Liberty, Missouri, “if we don’t raise the debt ceiling, we’re deadbeats.” This is a prime example of “fundamentally transforming” America. This is part of the strategy that leftists use – change the definition of words, seize the vocabulary. Obama wants you to believe that racking up bills that you can’t pay for in the first place, and then borrowing money to pay those bills, and then passing on that debt to your children is the responsible thing. It used to be that people understood that if you robbed from your children you were, fundamentally, a deadbeat.
Thomas Paine tells a story in 1776 about a conversation he overheard by such outlaws like we see in government today…
“I once felt all that kind of anger, which a man ought to feel, against the mean principles that are held by the Tories: a noted one, who kept a tavern at Amboy, was standing at his door, with as pretty a child in his hand, about eight or nine years old, as I ever saw, and after speaking his mind as freely as he thought was prudent, finished with this unfatherly expression, ‘Well! give me peace in my day.’”
Thomas Paine calls men who pass on problems to their children “UNFATHERLY”. How is it that we are taught that we are so much smarter than our founders that we have to redefine their wisdom by redefining the Constitution? Here we have Thomas Paine in 1776 giving the correct definition of “deadbeat” and today that concept eludes us? What does that say about ANY member of Congress who will vote to increase the debt ceiling? Yes, I said they ALL are wicked deadbeats, regardless of party affiliation, if they vote to increase the debt ceiling.
How many in the Republican Party have declared that they cannot do what is necessary to subdue this out of control government because they don’t want to get “blamed” for the government shut down? They don’t want to interfere with the party’s chances during the election? They are saying, “Well, give me peace in my day!” We don’t have to call them names, because according to Thomas Paine, they have CLASSIFIED THEMSELVES as the REAL deadbeats!
Do you want REAL solutions? Just listen as Thomas Paine continues with his story to give us REAL direction…
“Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation must some time or other finally take place, and a generous parent should have said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;” and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty. Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America.”
When are YOU going to become that “generous parent” and separate YOURSELF from these wicked, deadbeats playing party politics? In fundamentally-transformed liberal wonderland, up is down and down is up…spending like a drunken sailor is good, attempting to reign in the drunkards is bad. Can someone go get the grown-ups who know that wonderland isn’t real? Can someone please find a parent in government who loves their child or their grandchild more than their money, their party, and themselves?
