This song came out last year before the 2010 elections and I never saw it. Maybe some of you did.
If not, I’m sharing. It’s great.

“Americans have to make tough choices about how to live within their means while still investing in their future and the President’s choices are no different. The President is looking forward to talking directly to the American people and sharing his commitment to making deep cuts, so that we can continue to invest in areas like innovation that will help our economy continue to grow,” said Adam Abrams, a White House spokesman. (from here.)
It’s amazing how one paragraph can say so much about a person, an ideology, a regime.
Americans do have to make tough choices about living within our means. No questions about that and no argument here. But in my lifetime experience, you first live within your means and pay off your debts and then you save and invest for your future. You get out of the hole you’ve dug for yourself and then you move on to a, hopefully, brighter future. You can’t invest in your future, you can’t save for your kids college fund when you’re $200,000 in debt. The debt comes first. Or your kid has no college fund and your family will probably not have a home to live in, either.
It’s not the governments job to invest in innovation. And it’s not the governments job to determine what businesses to invest in. The private sector is in the best position to judge that, through competition and whatever drives the marketplace. When the government starts meddling in the creation of business, it invariably starts paying back political favors and not doing what’s best for the citizens as a whole. The government can create a climate where businesses can grow, by lowering the tax base, for instance, as Rep. Paul Ryan has spelled out in his budget plan, but it’s not capable of creating jobs in the private sector. It can only expand itself with more useless bureaucrats and regulations. We’ve all seen plenty of that in the last 2 years. And we’ve all been paying for it, too.
That original first paragraph screams socialism to the sharp eye.
It’s a seemingly simple message, in one short paragraph that says so much to the astute reader. Unfortunately, there are too many in this country who don’t read closely enough and who aren’t keenly listening.
This is why Barack Obama is our president now. And why we have to be, in Mark Levin’s words, the Paul and Paulette Reveres of our families and communities.
So patriots, GET OUT THERE AND CORRECT THE MESSAGE!

If these don’t give you pause to think – nothing will.
This new ad, which features a chilling look at one potential future scenario if America continues on its current destructive fiscal trajectory, is a 2010 homage to “The Deficit Trials,” a 1986 ad that was produced by W.R. Grace & Co. For those who were able to view it, the ad caused a sensation; it was considered so controversial at the time that the networks refused to run it.
J. Peter Grace, CAGW’s co-founder and the chairman of President Ronald Reagan’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control (the Grace Commission), was alarmed about what the debt would do to future generations. The national debt was $2 trillion in 1986, when “The Deficit Trials” ad was denied broadcast time; today the debt stands at $14 trillion and is projected to reach 140 percent of GDP in two decades, the time in which the new CAGW ad is set.
