As if the American public’s tolerance for political chicanery hasn’t been tested beyond the breaking point, now comes news that several shyster Progressives and Democrats are floating the notion that the debt ceiling is – get this – unconstitutional. Far be it from me to ask, but why is it the only time Progressives and Democrats concern themselves with the constitutionality of issues is when its concern their ability to spend money?
US Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) – you remember him, he’s the candidate that Delawareans deemed better suited to represent them than Christine O’Donnell; the one who wrote an article for his college newspaper, entitled “Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist” – is quoted as saying:
“This is an issue that’s been raised in some private debate between senators as to whether in fact we can default, or whether that provision of the Constitution can be held up as preventing default…I don’t think, as of a couple weeks ago, when this was first raised, it was seen as a pressing option. But I’ll tell you that it’s going to get a pretty strong second look as a way of saying, ‘Is there some way to save us from ourselves?’”
Great choice, Delawareans…you should be proud.
Now, most clear thinking Americans, when examining the depth of the financial crisis – the deficit spending and the debt accrued – have already come to the overwhelming conclusion that our elected officials – and the apparatus they have constructed in the federal bureaucracy – have taken to outrageous, unacceptable and, in no uncertain terms, grotesque spending habits. They have created such a financial catastrophe that in poll after poll, the American public agrees that spending by the US federal government must be not only reined in, but limited from this point forward so that the ideologues and social engineering zealots can’t bring our nation to the brink of non-existence, such as we find ourselves today.
Make no mistake, when I say federal government I am not just speaking of Democrats; many Republicans and, without question, each and every Progressive are included. In fact, where Progressives are concerned – seeing as their ideology is basically Marxism with a Madison Avenue sell job – spending other people’s money “for the good of the people” is in the DNA.
