6/14/11 A Beautiful Road To Where?
I have heard it said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Who could say that all the things that government does, is not based on good intentions. There is no doubt that social security, medicare, Medicaid, disaster relief, and numerous other programs were intended to relieve human suffering. What could be better than every family owning their own home. Foreign aid, is a compassionate thing, but it should be administered by a private charitable organization. You can’t buy friendship. Have you
noticed that our flag is burned in the countries that get our hard earned tax money.
This country is on the brink of disaster, because in the name of compassion, it has spent money like it was going out of style. Hide and watch, it is going out of style very rapidly. The reason we find ourselves in this predicament, is because the people that have been sent to Washington, ignore the constitution. In 1794, when Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief of French refugees, who fled from insurrection in San Domingo to Baltimore and Philadelphia, James Madison the acknowledged father of the Constitution wrote disapprovingly, “ I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents”.
If the constitution had been followed, we would not be Trillions of dollars in debt. If we were not subsidizing every thing that comes along, we would be far better off. My theory is, if it won’t pay the freight, it is not worth hauling. The agriculture department awarded the university of New Hampshire $700,000 to investigate methane gas emissions from dairy cows. If you are interested in studying more about Govt. waste, do it on your own, it makes me sick.
Once you start raiding the public treasury for benefits, for a certain group, you will soon be in hot water with others. It will be like a snow ball rolling down hill, it will soon
be big and out of control.
Article 1 section 8 of the Constitution, “ The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States. There are those who say that the “general welfare” clause gives Congress the license to spend the country into oblivion Do you think that the situation that we find ourselves in, is the general welfare that the founding Fathers had in mind ? I don’t think so.
Now that we have the hogs up to the trough, it is imperative that they be fed, and it can possibly be done, if every one is willing to share in the pain. There is no way that we can continue on the present road, because it is leading to hell, no matter how good the intentions are. You can count me among the hogs, but we should never been put in this position. All these good programs were put in place to buy votes and control the populace.
