"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" Ronald Reagan
In case you missed Glenn Beck's opener yesterday (I did, too) to his new TV program ... he used his whole hour to highlight America's March to Socialism... thanks to YouTube you can see it now...
Glenn Beck's show airs everyday at 5:00 EST on Fox News.
It's really vital that we stay up to date on how this slippery slope to socialism can actually happen to our great United States of America.
Some of the rhetoric we heard during the "Hopey-Changey" campaign sounds so nice. Even now it sounds so nice.
Gee, why shouldn't all those fat-cat corporate execs have a salary cap that limits executive salaries to $500,000 at any institution that accepted a government bailout? Because, my friends, as Gary Bauer reminds us "a government big enough to run Wall Street will end up running your street too."
Is that what we want?"
Bauer goes on to say, "We aren’t in trouble because some bankers are overpaid. We are in trouble because we have a government that continually grows and demands more and more of your hard-earned money. In addition, it has ordered many banks to make bad business decisions based on liberal social engineering. The subprime mortgage meltdown can be traced back to liberal Big Government policies and programs. Unfortunately, the same people who created this mess are in charge of fixing it today! Before the sun sets today, your federal government will waste more money than all the salaries of Wall Street executives put together."
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " Ronald Reagan
