Not to belabor the point made here hundreds of times, but over two thousand pages of Obamacare legislation will result in several thousand pages of regulations which will control the most intimate and important aspects of our lives; cap-and-trade legislation and regulations will control the means of production; financial regulation has devolved into social planning; and it goes on and on.Prof. Jacobson goes on to say that we still have a choice. This is true enough but that choice has an expiration date. If we do not turn things around in November our way of life won't just be gone for a generation or a few generations, it will be gone. That is the choice and responsibility that faces us all.
We did not need to reach this point.
What should have been a passing financial crisis has been used by the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress to achieve what -- in the famous words of Rahm Emanuel -- could not otherwise be achieved.
Democrats took advantage of a crisis, and then doubled-down by massively increasing our national debt to advantage preferred political constituencies.
The answer should have been to grow the pie, not to redistribute the slices, but that alternative is off the table with Democrats in control.
"Free the economy" should be the chant.
We are coming to the point at which Americans will have to choose sides. Will it be the bottom-up free enterprise model upon which this country was built, or the top-down command economy in which Washington, D.C. politicians and government employees centrally plan the economy and our lives?
Are you ready to chose?
