Conservative Quote: Purpose of Government Part 2

“Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” Ronald Reagan

In a nutshell, Obama and the Democrat view of government is exactly what Reagan said above. Now, Reagan, being wise, did not follow the model he stated. He inherited a bad economy from the Carter years, many then stating that it was the worst economy since the Great Depression. Sound familiar? But he lowered personal income tax rates ACROSS THE BOARD BY 25%, reduced the corporate income tax, encouraged private enterprise, and soon after, the economy grew. His economic policy, now called Reagonomics, has been proven valid time and again. After 25 years, Reagonomics continues to influence policy for the better, in both the U.S. and around the globe. Cutting tax rates restored private incentives to save, to invest, and had a positive effect on private ventures.* (Capitalism.) Reagonomics is at the heart of today’s conservative issues and Republicans urge Obama and the Democrat Congress to try it rather than spending trillions, putting America’s future into massive debt, creating a socialist government, and probably failing to stimulate the economy, the supposed main purpose of this colossal spending.

Interestingly, when asked, Obama denies vehemently that he is a socialist, but his actions speak louder than his words. He justifies the socialistic turn his policies have taken as just what is needed to stimulate the flagging economy. But I feel the purpose of government is NOT to control all the activities of business and individual’s lives. It is not to tax the so-called wealthy and give it to the poor, making the poor dependent on the government and destroying private endeavors, and also  building class warfare here in America.  I believe the purpose of government is to encourage individual capitalism to rebound, lower or do away with unfair taxes, and not impose vast government control over America. Obama wants to nationalize health care, put the federal government in charge of energy, control your child’s education, regulate the auto industry, and wants hard-working Americans who played by the rules and lived within their means to pay for other people’s defaulting mortgages.

If you agree, “It is time for Americans to stick their heads out the window and … shout to Barack Obama: ‘I’M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”**

Both Reagonomics and raising taxes have been tried in the past. Let us learn from history. Reagonomics has worked, while raising taxes in a recession, and the resultant socialistic trends have not worked, but made things worse. President Hubert Hoover raised taxes in the early 1930’s, driving America even deeper into the Great Depression. The Depression lasted twelve years and did not end until World War II broke out in 1942. Raising taxes had quite a bit to do with the Depression hanging on.

Obama’s madness must stop BEFORE OUR RECESSION DROPS TO A DEPRESSION. Tell Obama, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!…THE INSANITY MUST STOP! NOW!”** Raising taxes and socializing America won’t work!
