The road to ruin

For every self-described "conservative" who voted for Obama or who is going along with his plans to spend our way into oblivion (I'm looking at a certain three Senators, here), the first paragraph of this NYT column should serve as a wakeup call, while the second should show them just how goddamn stupid they've been:

The budget that President Obama proposed on Thursday is nothing less than an attempt to end a three-decade era of economic policy dominated by the ideas of Ronald Reagan and his supporters.

The Obama budget — a bold, even radical departure from recent history, wrapped in bureaucratic formality and statistical tables — would sharply raise taxes on the rich, beyond where Bill Clinton had raised them. It would reduce taxes for everyone else, to a lower point than they were under either Mr. Clinton or George W. Bush. And it would lay the groundwork for sweeping changes in health care and education, among other areas.

The so-called "rich" already pay the majority of taxes in this country to begin with, and they also create most of the jobs. As Larry Elder used to often ask on his talk show, "When was the last time you got a job from someone who was poor?" And guess what? When you start soaking them with this class warfare bullshit, they're going to spend less of their money on hiring people, buying things that employ people (the people who work for the companies that manufacture private jets must be scared absolutely shitless right now), investing their money (how's the Dow doing, Barack?), and giving to the kind of charities that help people in tough economic times. Meanwhile, a dog park gets built here or there and most of us get thirteen bucks. What a fucking awesome tradeoff.

Anybody who considers themselves "conservative" and still voted for this fucking socialist dumbass or finds ways to rationalize his plan to wreck our economy is fucking dead to me.
