Mr. Obama, some of us are confused by your weekly address.
(Emphasis mine) Mr. Obama, that statement does not mean what you think it means. The deficit has tripled since you came in to office.
Not to mention the month of February 2011 has the largest deficit in history. It was so big in fact, that it was bigger than the entire deficit from 2007. The government cannot create jobs, all it can do is take money and redistribute it to others under the guise of creating jobs.
Why did the deficit need to triple? It is not the government’s job to innovate and it is not the government’s job to provide education either. The interest from the debt is going to reach a point where it is unmanageable. In order to live within your means sometimes means cutting things that you think are necessities but are actually luxuries. Many have been learning this fact first hand while Obama and family has been out playing golf and globe trotting.
If you want to be within the means of our country, you need a surplus big enough to destroy sizeable amounts of the debt. Will it hurt, yes, but a small amount of pain now is preferable to the total economic collapse that awaits if things don’t change.
