Ending the Insanity of “Government Knows Best”

By Tim Rudd
Clermont County Republican Party Chairman

Labor Day in a presidential election year is upon us. A relevant question is would you rather keep more of your paycheck or send more of your paycheck to Washington? If you want to keep more of your paycheck then you can’t wait till Election Day to vote for the Republican team of Romney and Ryan. If you want to keep less of your paycheck, well then you like the current occupant of the White House who just “likes to spread the wealth around”.

Ever since Obama’s inauguration Washington has been on one big spending spree. First it was his bloated stimulus package where Washington picked the winners and losers. Remember the $535 million of taxpayers money wasted on the single company Solyndra. Then there was the budget busting deficit monster Obamacare with its mandate which wasn’t a tax before it was a tax.

  • Under the current administration Washington has become an over corpulent Leviathan gorging itself on non-existent taxpayer wealth, after all only approximately 50% of all households must file a federal tax return.
  • Its corpulence has led to anemic economic growth less than half the White House projections for the last two years.
  • Our national debt this year will increase by one trillion dollars.
  • Unemployment was promised to be below 6% by now but is still over 8%.
  • IMF projections show China’s GDP will surpass our own by 2017.
  • Gas cost $1.84 in January 2008.

Hold Obama to his own words regarding fixing the economy, “if I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” Romney and Ryan will put an end to the insanity of the mentality that government knows best. They understand that our greatness was not created by a government program but by the sweat, sacrifice and decision making of individual Americans going about their daily lives in a free market economy.

Romney will bring years of private business experience to the job as President. Ryan brings years of experience courageously working on the federal budget to cut federal spending and has prepared plans, Roadmap for America’s Future and Path to Prosperity, that foresees a nation growing its way to prosperity.  If conservatives were looking for a reason to believe, then the addition of Paul Ryan to the ticket should make us all believers. Romney- Ryan will put that federal bloated Leviathan on a diet of lower taxation, lower spending, and lower regulation.  First actions will include ending Obamacare and approving the Keystone pipeline.

Irony describes the current vice president charges that the Republicans would put people “back into chains”. It is the current administration with its bloated spending policies which are enslaving the citizens of the United States to a mountain of debt. If the current trend is not stopped then we will be guilty to enslaving our children, their children, and our great grandchildren to an insurmountable federal indebtedness. We can break those chains. Romney- Ryan is the chisel and you are hammer, anvil and forge.
