Now we read this headline “With 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to era of austerity.” The article goes on to say Obama’s forthcoming budget request will seek tens of billions of dollars in fresh spending for domestic priorities while abandoning a compromise proposal to tame the national debt in part by trimming Social Security benefits.
With the 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to the era of austerity that has dogged much of his time heading the regime. Instead, the he will focus on pumping new cash into job training, early-childhood education and other programs aimed at bolstering the middle class, providing Marxist/Progressives with a policy blueprint heading into the midterm elections.
Two things stand out. What austerity? There have been no spending cuts. The headlines have proclaimed and agonized over the “huge spending cuts” that will devastate the nation. In reality, the only thing that was to be cut was the amount of the proposed increase. And then when even that has been restored we are told we must spend more. There is no austerity. The size of the Federal government has grown. There is no austerity. The amount of waste, fraud and rewarding of political allies has dramatically increased. There is no austerity. The frequency and elegance of vacations has only increased. There is no austerity.
The other stand out item is the age old truism; you can never believe or trust a liar. Obama is a proven and documented liar. His opponents have learned this time after time as has the American public. Obama, the liar, will make promises, but will not fulfil the promise. He has promised to make cuts. He never does. He is the living and breathing proof of the principle of Marx and Alinsky; the ends always justify the means. This means tell whatever lie you must; use whatever deceit you must to achieve the goal. Truth and honor have no relevance or meaning. The only thing that is important is to bring about the fundamental transformation from a free capitalistic society to an egalitarian and conforming Marxist society. WHAT AUSTERITY?
