President Obama’s economic deviancy

Obama is primarily responsible for the Tea Party movement, despite the fact that it is the nemesis of the President and the political establishment.

The movement is predominantly composed of a small number of Libertarians and a large number of Conservatives. The Tea Party Conservatives are formerly Conservative Republicans who have given up the notion of having a moral government and are tired of funding an immoral government. They are disconnecting from the Republican establishment, which today seems more comfortable managing big government than ultimately reducing it. Herein lies their commonality with Libertarians. The Tea Party is thus at the vertex of this confluence that emphasizes as its central theme the notion that the U.S. must return to a Constitutionally limited federal government.

The catalyst of this political migration is Obama’s stated goal of a “fundamental transformation of America.” Indeed, the Tea Party can most accurately be described as a popular revolt and instinctive response to such statements from this administration. Obama’s speech on the national debt reinforced the logic behind the movement; the President’s extremist economic goals further imperil our nation’s already dire fiscal situation.

“The fourth step in our approach is to reduce spending in the tax code. In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. And I refuse to renew them again.
“Beyond that, the tax code is also loaded up with spending on things like itemized deductions. And while I agree with the goals of many of these deductions, like homeownership or charitable giving, we cannot ignore the fact that they provide millionaires an average tax break of $75,000 while doing nothing for the typical middle-class family that doesn’t itemize.”

By referring to deductable expenses as “spending in the tax code,” the President indicated his belief that a person’s income is for the discretionary use of government, or for whatever Obama deems our nations “investments.” This then clarifies the enormous difference between the beliefs of the contemporary Democratic Left and those of free-market capitalists. The former believe that an individual’s labor product is a resource that belongs to the state, which may then be allocated, or, more accurately, appropriated it in a manner that it sees fit. The latter argue that a person’s labor belongs to them and them alone, and are thus the ultimate deciders of its fate.

“But let me be absolutely clear: I will preserve these health care programs as a promise we make to each other in this society. I will not allow Medicare to become a voucher program that leaves seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry, with a shrinking benefit to pay for rising costs. I will not tell families with children who have disabilities that they have to fend for themselves. We will reform these programs, but we will not abandon the fundamental commitment this country has kept for generations.”

The “fundamental commitment” that Obama speaks of is not a promise that American citizens made to one another. Rather, it is a promise Obama and the Left made to people who take from the system and a promise paid for by people who provide that system with money. This is possible because the voters who take far outnumber the voters who pay. Obama’s promise is that he will use force to take from a few to provide for the many in exchange for their political support. This he calls “courage.”

Today, fewer than 10 percent of Americans provide almost all federal income tax revenues. As it so happens, Obama and the Democratic party’s chief constituency is part of the 90 percent who think the top 10 percent can afford higher taxes. This explains why the Left defines democracy as the power for those who take from the system to decide how to spend the money of those who pay for the system. Over the years, this concept has been dressed up in all too many guises; social justice; economic justice; economic democracy, social democracy, and others.

The Tea Party emerged out of the fact that this narrow definition of democracy has grown steadily and unchallenged ever since Obama began campaigning for President. The Democratic Party has slowly built its base upon a dependency class, all while the Republican Party has provided only a modicum of resistance. This has set the national interest on drastically divergent paths and shattered American history’s political status quo.

Most importantly, however, it has allowed for the rise of political migrants who desire a return to the founding principles that made our nation prosperous in the first place and produced the wealth and power that the political class now seeks to redistribute to itself.

U.S. slapped by S&P – Will Conservatives learn and fight?

For the first time in history, Standard & Poor’s hit the American economy with a major warning, changing their view of our prospects from stable to negative.

The top ratings agency put the United States on notice yesterday that it could lose its AAA rating if it does not act quickly to pare down our deficits and total national debt.

If we as a country refuse to immediately address the federal spending spree we will be responsible for a catastrophic collapse of our economy.  That is why the GOP Trust has launched a national ad campaign to STOP CONGRESS FROM RAISING THE DEBT CEILING!

Spending cuts will never be taken seriously until Congress stops voting to increase the limit on the national credit card.  The Debt Ceiling vote is our best opportunity to finally start the fiscal restoration of our country.

Please GO HERE NOW and help us get these important ads on the air. 

We are finishing up the production stage right now

and with your help will be on the air later this week.

The U.S. will not lose its AAA rating if our leaders in Washington make the tough decisions needed to tackle the out of control federal spending binge.  If our leaders continue to kick the can down the road we will pay the price severely.

If we lose our AAA rating it is likely that we will not even be able to pay the interest on our massive debt once our rates are readjusted.  We will find ourselves in a debt trap of which there is no escape. 

We must act now!

David Beers, managing director at S&P, told the Washington Times that other AAA-rated nations like the United Kingdom, Germany and France had debt concerns, but he said these countries started tackling their debt problems over a year ago while the U.S. was still rapidly adding to its massive debt.
“In all these cases [in Europe], the governments are clearly on the path to bringing the deficits down. The United States is not,” he said.

It is time to take away the government’s credit card and force our leaders to address the issue that will destroy our great nation.

Our ad campaign can do it but we must buy massive chunks of airtime to energize all of America and show the political establishment that this must be done.  This is not negotiable!

Help us get these ads on the air today!
Join the Fight to Save our Country!

This is a fight that we can and should win.  The Republican leadership controls this debate.

THE GOOD NEWS- Obama cannot raise the debt ceiling without Republican votes in both the House and Senate.
THE BAD NEWS- The Republican leadership’s actions on tax and spending reform so far have been atrocious.  Last week’s budget deal was proven a sham.
We cannot let Republican leadership throw our principles under the busagain.  They must hear from all of us and we must get the American public involved in saving our country from the runaway debt.
Our national ad campaign will deliver a massive victory for tax and spending reform.

STOP THE FISCAL CHILD ABUSE!
GO HERE TO GET THESE ADS ON THE AIR 

If the Republican leadership failed to learn from last year’s historic elections… it is now our duty to not only educate them but to hold their feet to the fire.  If they refuse to stand up for America we will replace them with new leaders who get it.

We have seen issues like this too many times before.  Conservatives fight the good fight until the political establishment with all of its money and political influence garner enough votes to pass any level of spending increase they desire.

Our ads will fight back against the establishment and the liberal media and give the conservatives in Congress the support they need to win this fight.

We have a chance to stop the spending spree and start our country back on the road to fiscal sanity.  We can do it but we must all come together and we must act fast.

The vote is only weeks away unless Republicans cave in to the political establishment sooner.
We can do it but we must act now!

All we have to do is force all Republicans to hold the line and do the job they were elected to do.
Thank you for your tremendous support for The GOP Trust.  GO HERE NOW! 
Yours for America,
Scott Wheeler

Executive Director
PS-  Please forward this letter to your friends and family.  We need as many soldiers in this fight as possible.


GOP Tax day suprise – more caving in to the left

  • Budget Deal was a hoax
  • Debt Ceiling now last chance for spending reform
  • Republicans ready to cave again
  • New Ad Campaign will hold them to the fire!

Dear GOP Trust Supporter:
Hundreds of tax reform rallies are taking place today all across America.  Our tax code has morphed into a job killing behemoth that picks winners and losers based on the number of lobbyist working for each special interest.

The only way to have real tax reform is to start with real SPENDING reform!  The fight to raise the debt ceiling is our best opportunity to finally address the spending that threatens the future of our country.  The GOP Trust just launched a national ad campaign to STOP CONGRESS from raising the DEBT CEILING!

The Republican leadership controls this debate but their actions so far on tax and spending reform have been atrocious.  We must force them to hold the line for America!

The Washington Post reported over the weekend in a front page story that the “historic” $38 billion budget deal was a complete sham.  In actuality the spending cuts only equal a real savings of $400 – $500 million.

Treasury Secretary Geithner claimed on multiple Sunday talk shows that Republican leadership has already agreed to raise the debt ceiling even absent an agreement over the spending cuts.

We cannot let Republican leadership throw our principles under the bus again.

Let me be crystal clear – Obama and Geithner cannot raise the debt ceiling without Republican votes in both the House and Senate.  Republicans control the debate but they must hear from all of us before they cave again.

Our national ad campaign can deliver a massive victory for tax and spending reform.

STOP THE FISCAL CHILD ABUSE!

If the GOP leadership has learned nothing from the 2010 elections, it is our duty to not only educate them and hold their feet to the fire — but also to replace them with new leaders who ‘get it.

Children born today immediately inherit a $46 thousand share of the national debt.  The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has predicted that this birthday gift will more than triple by the time they enter the workforce.

We cannot let this be our legacy!

In the next 25 days, Congress will either increase their borrowing power and our individual share of the national debt or they will be forced to finally take spending reform seriously.

This is the battle the Tea Party and the 87 freshmen in Congress have been waiting for!

We at the GOP Trust are going to lead the fight with another of our award winning national ad campaigns to STOP Congress from RAISING THE DEBT CEILING again.  Together we will restore trust in Republican leadership and force them to stay true to the principles that elected them.

Public opinion is on our side but the scare tactics of the Democrats and the liberal media are already starting to erode these numbers.  A recent NBC/WSJ poll showed 62% of Americans are against raising the debt ceiling.

We must get our ads on the air today and prevent the media and the Campaigner-in-Chief from turning public opinion against us.
If we can just force Republicans to hold firm to their promise to reduce spending and lower our national debt – WE WILL WIN this critical battle.
This ad campaign will STOP the spending and set the stage for meaningful tax reform.

Please FORWARD this letter to everyone you know.  We need everyone pitching in to fight this battle.

We can stop it if we can reach the American people with the right information.

America needs to know what’s at stake.
$45,970 –   Share of National Debt owed per U.S. Citizen
$128,631 –   Share of National Debt owed per Taxpayer

Our ads will drill into people’s heads that the logical first step to getting the national debt under control is eliminating our capacity to accumulate more of it.

Our campaign will do it!  AND YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Tea Party’s biggest test just days away

Washington is gearing up for a major battle that will make last week’s budget fight seem trivial.

In less than 30 days Congress will either increase their borrowing power again or finally take spending reform seriously.  This is the battle the Tea Party has been waiting for and we are going to lead the fight with another of our award winning national ad campaigns to STOP Congress from RAISING THE DEBT CEILING again.

This should be a simple fight.  The debt ceiling absolutely CANNOT be raised without Republicans in both the House and Senate voting for it.

If we can just force Republicans to hold firm to their promise to reduce spending and lower our national debt – WE WILL WIN this critical battle.

The Republican majority we fought to elect last year proved pathetic as they easily caved in and embraced a mockery of a spending cut last week.  We cannot and will not let them get steamrolled again by the political establishment.

This ad campaign will STOP the OUT-OF-CONTROL DEBT that poses a mortal threat to America’s future!

Join the Spending Intervention and save our country!

The national debt has blown pass $14 trillion and is skyrocketing every day.  Instead of turning off the spigot and saving our future, Congress is about to take more of our tax dollars to fund their pet projects and borrow trillions more from Communist China.

The government’s massive expansion of power and spending will only end with a catastrophic collapse of the American economy unless we stop Congress from continuing to increase their credit limit.

America needs to know what’s at stake.

  • $45,939 –   Share of National Debt owed per U.S. Citizen
  • $128,565 –   Share of National Debt owed per Taxpayer

Our ads will drill into people’s heads that the logical first step to getting the national debt under control is eliminating our capacity to accumulate more of it.

Congress will take this vote in the next 30 days.  We must act now!

This spending binge will destroy our future unless we stop it.  If we can prevent Congress from increasing the debt limit we will successfully force them to tackle spending reform.

Without a limitless debit card Members of Congress will be forced to make the tough decisions they were elected to make.

The Democrats and the media are already shrieking that we must increase the debt ceiling and increase it now.  That is because it is easier to increase the debt ceiling with one swipe of a pen than it is to eliminate and cut the billions government waste and corruption.

Obama wants this so he can borrow more money to pay off his friends who will help him get re-elected next year.  It’s just another bailout for his radical agenda and political cronies at the expense of our future.

Wall Street is busy lobbying the halls of Congress crying wolf for a quick increase to the debt ceiling.  They successfully pulled this off last time with the Wall Street Bailout but we will not let them get away with it this time.  Remember roughly 65% of Wall Street political donations go to fund Democrats.

Our ads will energize the American people and force Congress to respect the voice of the electorate.  We can do it but we must act now!

We have seen issues like this too many times before.  Conservatives fight the good fight until the political Establishment with all of its money and political influence garner enough votes to pass any level of spending increase they desire.

Join the Intervention: This New Ad Will Stop Government’s Spending Addiction

Dear GOP Trust Supporter:

The national debt has surpassed $14 trillion and is skyrocketing every day.  This government spending binge will destroy our future unless we act immediately!  The best opportunity to stop this spending frenzy is approaching quickly so we launched a national ad campaign (see below) to make this a top priority of the new Congress.

Our country’s debt is fast approaching the National Debt Limit.  A limit that was increased by Congress less than a year ago under empty promises and lies about massive spending cuts to come.

Congress must now decide – increase the debt ceiling or cut spending.  IT IS TIME TO ACT!!  We literally cannot afford to sit this fight out.
Earlier this week on the Fox Business Channel Judge Andrew Napolitano in conversation with Glenn Beck stated “The Debt Ceiling should NOT be raised… The Government will have to make very hard choices and that is what we elected them to do.

We at the GOP Trust could not agree more with the Judge.  We are prepared to lead this fight and finally turn off the government money spigots.  We can do it but we need your help.

Please go here to help us spread the word and stop the Spending Binge!

This Ad is Just the Beginning
We must all come together to tell Congress to STOP.  They must cut spending immediately and leave the debt ceiling alone.

This is just the first in a series of ads we will be pushing over the Internet and airing on national TV. We must get the word out quickly and force Congress to act responsibly.  Remember the money they so greedily spend is yours!

Conservative Leaders Need Our Help
The government addiction to spending and debt is out of control.  According to CBS News  “It took just 7 months for the National Debt to increase from $13 trillion on June 1, 2010 to $14 trillion on Dec. 31.
Conservatives in Congress are preparing to fight but they need our help.  In a recent interview Senator Jim DeMint stated: “We need to have a showdown at this point that we are not going to increase our debt ceiling anymore… We are going to cut things necessary to stay within the current levels, which is over $14 trillion. This needs to be a big showdown.
Representative Michelle Bachmann is leading the charge in the Houseto stop the increase of the debt ceiling but she needs our support.
This issue is so critical even RINO Senator Lindsey Graham is threating to vote no on raising the debt ceiling emphasizing, “This is an opportunity to make sure the government is changing its spending ways….”
We have seen this too many times before.  Conservatives fight the good fight until the Establishment with all of its money and political influence garner enough votes to pass any level of spending increase they desire.
This time will be different but we must act now.  Please FORWARD this letter and video on to everyone you know.  The money the government is so rapidly spending is their money too.

Please Go Here Now
You can help spread the word and win this critical fight!

We Must Act Now
Many will say that we must increase the debt ceiling and increase it now.  That is because it is easier to increase the debt ceiling with one swipe of a pen than it is to eliminate and cut the billions of dollars of government waste and corruption from thousands of separate government programs and agencies.

In a letter to congressional leaders yesterday, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said the government will reach the debt limit between March 31 and May 16.

Instead of attending political fundraisers, junkets disguised as conferences, golfing and taking multiple vacations…

Congress and the Administration should be doing their job and working to cut waste and fraud.  They have plenty of time to find a responsible solution they just need the incentive.

We will supply that incentive directly from the American people.

Go here now to join the fight
Help us get this series of ads on the air today.

Taking on the Establishment
The national debt is not a Republican or Democrat problem, this is an American disaster.  Both political parties ruled by a corrupt political Establishment are to blame.

The national debt nearly doubled under President George W. Bush and Obama has already added nearly $2 trillion more in less than 2 years.  To give you some perspective of just how ridiculously large 2 trillion is, think of it this way.  If you were to set aside $100 million each year (without interest) it would take you 20 thousand years to reach 2 trillion.

Our national debt is now over 14 trillion and our government wants more!

This is long overdue.  It is time to JUST SAY NO!!

Allowing the government to increase the debt ceiling is like giving the perpetual quitting smoker one last cigarette or an alcoholic one last drink.  It doesn’t work.

Together you and I must spread the word and hold this Congress accountable.  This ad campaign combined with our grassroots and Capitol Hill presence can make the difference.

Together we can give our government the spending intervention it needs and save our future.

Please join with me in this critical fight.  Help us spread these ads far and wide over the Internet and on National TV.

Please GO HERE NOW!

Yours for America,
Scott Wheeler
