Time to Let the Country Crash?
American Thinker, by Ebben Raves

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 11/15/2012 6:44:07 AM

"Let it crash!" "Give them what they want and they´ll see what happens!" "Surely, once the left´s programs are implemented and the economy crashes, people will come to their senses." Since the election, many on the right have echoed this meme. They are convinced that widespread poverty and lack of opportunity will bring a resurgence of the America many of them knew growing up. Grandma and Grandpa´s America. Perhaps these people forget that Roosevelt was re-elected three times during a depression that he helped prolong

No need to let it crash. Like the Titanic, the crash has already occurred, and though the band is still playing and people are still dancing, the ship is indeed going down. The only question is who´s going to survive.

I agree,let it happen. the country can´t keep going on lines of credit to fund foolish programs and ideas.

Look at how this socialite and husband lived well beyond their means and are millions in the hole. This can be extrapolated to the country´s debt.Student loans,FHA loans and pensions are well over a trillion in debt each. How long with tax increases keep all the going.

It is not "fair" to the American taxpayer to have to pay the President and the Senate when they have failed to pass a budget that is required by law.

Matter of fact, I would like to see a lawsuit claiming that the govt. can not collect taxes without a budget.

A crash is the only thing that will clarify everyone´s mind at the same time.

Let it come sooner rather than later, let´s get this over with so this country can right itself.

Selling apples on the corner will get everybody pulling in the same direction quicker than the back and forth political snipefest we have now.

This is how dictators take hold. This is exactly what Dumbo wants, A CRASH.. Riots, emergency tax increases, martial law. This is chapter 3 of Alinsky. In 3 weeks all your life savings will be gone. Think the absolute worst for the country , multiply by 3 and that is what Pelosi, Reid and Dumbo want. Be careful what you ask for!

Why do you think China and Russia have kept their tyrannies for so long? A bankrupt nation is easier to manage for a dictatorship. America succeeded in the Revolution, in part because we were a rich nation with a lot of raw wealth. What is so dangerous about Obama, is that if he succeeds in destroying this wealth, an armed and angry citizenry alone will not overthrow him. He has squirreled away billions for his war chests leaving us holding the bag. The Feds have millions of rounds of ammo themselves, and our most loyal troops are overseas fighting in useless military operations wasting their strength and isolated from events in their homeland.

We can NOT wait for a financial crash to wake up a lax citizenry. Likely, any financial pain will be reported as Republican obstructionism, as it has in the past and that crowd of kool-aid drinkers will readily lap it up. What ever we do must be done, here and now with an eye for changing Education and how someone qualifies as a voter.

I agree with the author. The populace feels entitled. Today´s entitled youth don´t want to work. They feel that the rich have an obligation to support the middle-class and the poor. If the country crashes, it will only fuel their argument for the government to save them from the evil rich right. But what they don´t realize is that the rich are the ones who make their miserable existence through their tax revenue. I read an article about the amount of revenue that the top 5% create and it was staggering. So what if the top 1% decide that they´re not going grow their companies to avoid paying higher taxes?

When the country crashes, and it will, it will be blamed on us regardless of what we´ve done. That is apparently what we´re here for. We are now the official villains.

(Continued)

1. Education is number one. We must promote America and Civics from day one. We stopped this long implemented education because the Left complained it was ´indoctrination´. They then promptly stepped in and indoctrinated generations in their philosophy - which is the principle reason we are, where we are. Morality, responsibility, and success through hard work must be restored as gold standards of a renewed America.

2. I think no one who is accepting more from the government than they put in should be allowed to vote, unless they are in a high risk job - such as active military. You should only have a vote if you have skin in the game. If you fall into economic hardship, it would be a good reason to lift yourself up again, in order to have a say in your government.

3. We should have a requirement for a balanced budget, with taxes limited to a set percentage of the GDP. Government must stay within their means, and we would vote in part in how well they serve us. A greedy bunch that hordes the taxes for their private use wouldn´t last long.

4. We must define and refine what a Natural born citizen is. Regardless of what you think of the birther business, we need to get a handle on the ´Path to Citizenship´. Government Assistance should only be for U.S. citizens. Non-citizens should be legally permitted to seek help from private institutions, and work here, if they want, but only citizens should benefit from government aid in times of trouble. Only citizens should be permitted to vote or serve in government.

A crash is not optimal as it is often replaced with something much much worse.

But yet it is coming anyway.

The crash will not convince the other half of the country that their choice was wrong. The Republicans could vote present for the next two years, let Pelosi, Reid and the won have it all and still get the blame because the MSM will make sure of it. They will rouse them up to the point of violence then all bets are off.

The left rely on scare tactics to promote their agenda. They must have an evil villain for the government to slay. It´s just like breast cancer. Don´t misunderstand me. I think cancer is terrible for anyone to have to endure. I have lost many friends and family members to its effects. But you don´t see the same kind of support from the left for heart disease because heart disease is curable even though heart disease kills 10 times the number of people each year than breast cancer. We´re the disease.

When this country crashes look to the implementation of a world currency and a world government. This will be easier to bring about with a US economy in the tank. I beleive that this is the goal.

It´s not the country that needs to crash, it´s the federal government that does. I know many will think it´s the same thing and that´s the big problem, maybe the biggest problem. Each state is like it´s own smaller country bound together by the federal gov´t. The states are comprised of smaller local districts. Many of these are doing just fine. If the feds were off their backs the country could recover quickly and reclaim it´s purpose. I think this is what Zipp0 stands in the way of happening.

The GOP certainly has proven they don´t have a plan. So, if you´re expecting either the Democrats OR the Republicans to do something other than maintain THEIR favored status and taxpayer paid perks - you´re fooling yourself.

No more GOP for me - I´m changing my voter registration to Independent and don´t plan on voting straight Republican again. I´m joing the majority. I want my "free stuff" - and a mint julep...

Yea, how´s that working out for Greece?

Given all the forces against a real solution those in power are purposely crashing the system. They think they will be the ones to rebuild it...I think a revolution will result and those that caused this problem will be held to account just like in the French Revolution!

Several points:

The crash was baked into the cake when the Bush tax rates were extended only to the end of this year. Same with Obama´s assorted tax credits and Payroll Tax Holiday. Same with the Sequester. This is what a Democrat President and Congress passed. Obama campaigned on the Clinton tax rates and that is what is currently on the books.

If the tax rates go up on everyone to Clinton levels, then a lot more people will be taxed than are now currently taxed. Only those who pay taxes worry about size of government.

Sequestration will be cooked into the baseline. No more 8% increases in spending declared to be cuts.

Let the Dems propose compromise. If they are as silly as Obama and Reid´s, laugh. And remind them they passed the current plan. Then let the time run out.

The GOP can´t win. The Dems can certainly lose. Let The People experience a Worker Paradise.

Liberals Digging Their Political Graves

Do liberals understand what they are doing? I don´t think they do. I think that they are blinkered by their one-dimensional view of politics: it reduces to the struggle for social justice. In 2010 after the midterm the Obamis decided they had to punch back twice as hard against the moneyed interests that would be unleashed by Citizens United. In Seattle the activist left is planning another May Day march: “Capitalist police state... rape of civil liberties.” Oh yeah! Liberals do not think about the real meat of political philosophy, which is not to design a perfect political system with perfect

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam.

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
