We only produce 13 trillion a year

I know when we throw around bills with billions and billions then we start talking about trillions and trillions, one becomes numb to the numbers. So let's look at what the United States actually *can* do.

The gross domestic product of the U.S. in 2007, according to Wikipedia, is 13.8 trillion dollars. That's it. No more.

It is for this reason that Obama's insanely large spending bills are cause for revulsion. A few trillion here, a few trillion there. We can't possibly pay this back. Our country will be bankrupt. Our currency will be devalued. Our children will suffer under the yoke of financial slavery. This is not OK. Call your congress-people and senators and just say NO. They need to calm down their pie-in-the-sky plans for nationalizing *everything* and present budgets that are based on reality.

Who is going to pay for these programs when we have chased off all the producers of our society. Do you think that people who make over $250,000 are going to sit still and allow themselves to be victimized? I assure you, they will make other plans. They will adjust. They are smart enough to figure that out.

Who does that leave paying the taxes? YOU. Period.

I am so completely dissenchanted with Obama's plan right now it makes me want to puck sometimes. His airing himself on T.V. to get moral support for plan is so campaign-ish (for lack of a better word). He's not on the campaign anymore!!! he needs to buckle down and work bi-partisan like he promised he would and DO SOMETHING.

Back to the famous Maggie Thatcher comment: "The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of somebody else's money." When Opus #6 (not her real name) uses the term, "nationalizing businesses" that's what she's saying.

Am I the only one who recalls the famous saying in Soviet Russia: "They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work."

Im really glad to find someone who has the same beliefs- I thought I was all alone in the country.

Tess, you inspired me. I started a conservative blog roll in the column of my blog. You are SO not alone.
