Democrats Pave the Road to Ruin

Democrats Pave the Road to Ruin

Four times last month, pollsters gauged voters' opinion of the Democratic-run Congress and four times they came back showing almost 3 in 4 Americans disapproving of its performance. But if voters think they hate Congress now, just wait until next January when, as expected, they twin a Democratic Congress with a Democratic president who today is Congress' most liberal member.


Besides ensuring the continued crippling increases in energy prices that will leave tens of millions of Americans shivering in their homes for many winters to come while guaranteeing the death of millions of jobs and a more rapid decline in Americans' standard of living, Democrats intend to pursue their socialist utopia with even more deficit spending, a record tax increase and wholesale disincentives to work, invest and save.

Their 2009 budget, which narrowly passed last month, raises federal spending to a record $3.1 trillion. But it does nothing to address the projected deficit that some say could reach a half-trillion dollars; boosts federal spending by an average of almost $130 billion annually over the next five years; and projects another half-trillion in phantom revenues by 2014.

Further, it forecasts a small budget surplus by 2012 by pretending the war against Islamic terrorism will be over by Dec. 31, 2009; inflicting the Alternative Minimum Tax on more than 20 million middle-class Americans; and allowing the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts on income-tax rates, capital gains and dividend income expire in 2010, which would mean a record tax increase of nearly $3 trillion by 2018 and a resumption of the Democrats' punitive assault on Americans' successes and savings.

Based on calculations of a number of public and private agencies, the 116 million taxpayers will see an average increase of $1,800 in their annual tax bill come 2011, which does not account for anything the Democrats might do in the interim. For 48 million couples, the spike will total $3,000; even the elderly ($2,200) and the poor ($1,600) will pay more. Meanwhile, the percentage of income taxes paid by the top 1 percent will fall from 60 to 57. The average tax increase for Connecticut families is estimated at $4,300.

At the same time, the Democrats propose to do nothing about the $52 trillion in unfunded spending over the next 50 years in Social Security and Medicare.

During their 12 years at the helm, Republicans were poor stewards of the public treasury. But giving the keys to government to the Democrats would spell certain fiscal and economic disaster.

President Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn

Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn
By Mark Davis


There has been no shortage of ridiculous articles this year evaluating how America's image will need serious refurbishing after the "damage" exacted by the Bush years.

One would presume that the most "damaging" element of the Bush legacy has been the seven years of the war on terror. Oh, how he - and we - are despised from the caf├ęs of Paris to the sidewalks of Berlin, from the coffee shops of Cairo to the market squares of Caracas, all because we have spent the years since 9/11 trying to reform the part of the world that wishes we were all dead.

It is equal parts sad and scary that an entire political party and millions of its adherents in America believe that we should guide foreign policy by how much of the world likes us.
This is as fundamentally stupid as trying to raise a child by being a buddy instead of a parent. That is a sure recipe for a rotten, indulged, unappreciative kid.


If you think it an insulting condescension to analogize America and the world to a parent's lessons for a spoiled child, you are completely correct, and that is my precise intent. Much of the world deserves such derisive regard, and worse.

Europe doesn't know what an enemy is any more. The Middle East is so filled with murderous lunatics that rational voices are drowned out. And from Latin America to Asia to Africa, there is so much tyranny, terror and corruption that no single U.S. president could possibly make a sizeable dent.

But this one has tried, and for that he is despised by America's enemies around the world and political enemies at home.

He should wear their scorn like a badge of honor. I would love to see a day when America is admired consistently from continent to continent. But let the world admire us because we have done the right things, even when unpopular, not because we changed our definition of what is right to appease evil leaders and misguided masses around the globe.

They always say if the opposition minds that much, he must be doing something right! LOL!
