Aside from the bastardization of the Constitution that the Obama plans are, that TARP is, it's not constitutional. Aside from that, where is the evidence that [anyone] has ever succeeded in any similar plans before? There is no evidence it works. The president's stimulus package, the TARP, the budget, relies on one thing for its success. Well, aside from authoritarian government power. It relies on the complacency of the American people. It relies on their belief that they can convince the American people that there's such a crisis that the only government, the only entity that can fix its government, as Obama has said. Liberals will never understand about America: we are a competitive people. We strive, enough of us do, to be the best.
They're the people that hire you. They're the people that are going to give you a job. They're the people that are going to give you a raise, the people that need you to do wor for them.
When Obama talks about past economies, he somehow always leaves out the recession of the '80s as worst than this one. Why does he leave it out? Because you know why he leaves it out, America? He leaves it out because we got out of that recession with tax cuts. We got out of the 1980s recession with tax cuts. Do you know that President Obama, in six weeks of his administration, has proposed more spending than from the founding of the country to his inauguration?
Let me add a caveat here. The New Castrati, guys who have lost their guts, say, "we can't say we want the President to fail, Mr. Limbaugh, because that's like saying you want the country to fail." It's the opposite. I want the country to survive. I want the country to succeed. I want the country to survive as we have known it, as you and I were raised in it.
There's some people you can't say you want the President to fail. The Democrat Party has actively not just sought the failure of Republican presidents and policies and now wars for the first time, the Democrat Party doesn't stop at failure. Talk to Judge Robert Bork or Justice Clarence Thomas about how they tried to destroy lives, reputations and character.
We don't want to tell anybody how to live. That's up to you. If you want to make the best of yourself, feel free. If you want to ruin your life, we'll try to stop it--but it's a waste. We look over the country as it is today, we see so much waste, human potential that's been destroyed by 50 years of a welfare state. By a failed war on poverty.
We resist the effort to group us. We resist the effort to make us feel that we're all the same, that we're no different than anybody else. We're all different. There are no two things or people in this world who are created in a way that they end up with equal outcomes. That's up to them
