Raising The National Debt Ceiling - A Bad Idea

In the next few months, the United States will hit the National Debt Ceiling of $14.3 Trillion Dollars. In order for the federal government to continue borrowing money to feed the beast, the Congress will have to raise the Debt Ceiling once again. To be clear, if the debt ceiling is not raised and it remains at $14.3 Trillion, the party is over. It would mean that the Congress and President would have to cut more than a Trillion dollars in spending to live within the $2.3 Trillion that the federal government brings in each year in tax revenues and other fees. It is time to go cold turkey if we are ever going to stop all the deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.

Both political parties are guilty as charged. Both the Socialists and the Republicans have been spending our money like drunken sailors on a long weekend on shore. Though the deficit has grown under Socialist President Obama like never before. In fact, Obama has added more to the National Debt during his few years in office than any other President in American history. And, if not stopped, Obama actually would like to add another $10 Trillion or more to the National Debt in the next ten years. It is almost as though Obama is intentionally trying to bankrupt our country because his actions are so irresponsible that there can be no other explanation. WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say HELL NO.

Republicans in Congress and responsible Socialists, if there are any, should vote against raising the National Debt to form a majority of the thinking. If that is not possible because life will end as we know it as a result of the abrupt end to deficit spending, then a condition for raising the National Debt must be the enactment of a Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment that is being proposed by various Tea Party Members of Congress. Unless we are facing a declared war, or other national disaster ratified by three fourths of the states, the federal government must be forced to live within its means. It is clear that only a Constitutional Amendment will make that happen because neither party can be trusted to properly manage our money.

Since it is not likely that the Socialists will abandon their big spending ways, we must elect common sense Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a BALANCED BUDGET, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our county and to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country and start by enacting a Balanced Budget Amendment to the US Constitution. We can do it. We must do it preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
