This is my effort to share my thoughts with readers about concerns facing our country today.  I believe there is a good chance my grandchildren may be the first generation in the history of this great country not to have a better standard of living than their parents. If so, our generation is to blame. The clock is running out for damage control. .

States that are Circling the Drain Want to Flush the Rest of the Country

It becomes more apparent every day that the states in this country that are going broke and counting on the states that are still healthy to bail them out want to make the rest of the country as unhealthy as they have become. 

California, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Florida, and much of the Northeast are almost all in serious financial trouble. They have used Obama's platform to put them where they are. High taxes for business, indiscriminate spending, entitlements, and aggressive environmental causes have put them in serious financial straits. They elected President Obama. Now Obama is following their script for all of America. 

I don't have a crystal ball,but I have always thought following bad economic practices that have demonstrated they don't work time and time again will get the same result. We shall see. 

People are leaving most of these states in droves. When we are all in the same boat, where do we go? 

Doing the same things the same way and expecting different results is a fool's game.

This is a big time form of socialism. Healthy states will be asked to bail out unhealthy states, states that put the new president in office.

Americans who have not behaved like these states will be asked to bail out Americans who behaved like these states. 

Ultimately, we will all be unhealthy financially.

Americans are pretty stubborn. We are being asked, begged to spend and not save. Too many of us are not following the lead of our government. We refuse to play the game. Can we hold out? Not if we are forced to pay to play like all politicians in Illinois and much of the rest of America expect. 

Anger is  on the horizon. Whether you respect G. Gordon Liddy's politics or not, he is a rare bird. He did the crime and he did the time. In a maximum security prison. Now we get the Rod Blagojevich types. Lawyer's all. They do the crime and they lie. Look right into the camera and lie. Remember, "I did not have sex with that woman." They you get the Giraldo Rivera's who defend them. 

My grand kids deserve better than this. You can sit and watch the car accident happen or you can try to rescue the survivors while we can. If we do nothing, we deserve what we get.

You know this is going to happen that the good will bail out the bad and the bad will get worst because I think the bad states think they deserve it. When are we going to raise up and see enough is enough. Let' talk term llimits and Not being able to be a lobbist right away. Why do we have a term limint on the president but not the congress?????

Term limits for all. The stimulus package is proof positive. It's a Christmas tree decked out with gifts for all the lobbyists and special interests.
