If we had cut the budget by 7% per year as I’d proposed back then, we’d be in good shape today.  Now I’m afraid it’s too late for gradual cutting.

I really, really hope I’m wrong about what’s about to smack us upside the head.

I’ve never so badly wanted to be wrong.

  1. I have been following the bailout debackle all last week. The Republicrats really show their true colors on how they voted for this. A “protection racket” is right. I am glad this happened though before November 4th and not after. Here is an awesome clip from Peter Schiff’s radio show I think everyone should listen to, this is scary stuff:

    I have forwarded this clip out to everyone I know.

  2. This is telling. I got this off of Ron Paul’s Campaign For Liberty Blog. Who was it we bailed out again? This is a list from the top 10…TOP 10…corporate PAC contributions to Obama and McCain. I ask anyone to explain which candidate CitiGroup Inc supports? Both? and to top it Lehman Bros CEO is trying to justify getting a $350 million bonus! This whole deal is the shaft pure and simple!
