In May of 1993 America was in the midst of a recession brought on by a progressive entitlement mentality, which was preceded by unprecedented growth of the U.S. economy during the Reagan years. While not a common term in the early 90’s, but openly used today, the term “social justice” has proved to be nothing more than another code for the entitlement mentality. The effect of this mentality would prove to have negative implications on American’s and the American economy for years to come.
At the time, a survey was conducted by USA Today which I responded to concerning the perspective of small businesses and the economy. It was apparent to me at the time that our government did not learn from the failed policies of the 1970’s and was attempting to return to a progressive “social justice” theme at the expense of the economy.
I responded to the survey, not just by answering the canned questions, but included a two page letter as well. It was evident then and it is evident now, the notion of “social justice” as achieved through entitlements does not work. Despite his progressive nature and his wife’s attempt to pass universal healthcare in a stagnant economy, Bill Clinton was the beneficiary of a revived economy. The economic state of the nation at that time was revived when the Republicans regained a majority in both the House and Senate during the 1994 mid-term election, and they were able to successfully force Clinton to reign in welfare and entitlements in order to balance the budget.
We now have a President who is more radical than Clinton and wouldn’t have a clue how to manage a lemonade stand, much less the United States of America. He is a “social justice” apostle. With support from his “big labor” buddies and other far left radicals, such as George Soros, the President continues to push forward his endeavor to destroy the free market system and replace it with socialism. The ultimate goal is sameness for all. It is easier to herd sheep when they are complacent. Now the sheep are at the trough once again, but unlike in the Clinton era in 1994, there is no one present to control the big bad wolf!
Please read my Letter from May 27, 1993 and see if you don’t agree that America has once again regressed and there are no restraints to keep this president from utilizing executive orders, regulations and the democrat majority in the senate from pushing us over the “fiscal cliff.”
Now think deeply and honestly about where America once again stands! The government is deeper in debt than ever before – roughly $16 Trillion in debt, unemployment hovers at 8%, approximately 47% of Americans are on some type of entitlement, businesses are fighting to survive and the President and his minions want to increase entitlements and raise taxes on the most productive members of society!
As Thomas Jefferson stated, “To force a man to furnish contributions of money towards the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves is both sinful and tyrannical.”
As was true in the early 90’s, there currently is no incentive for Americans to work hard, to act responsibly, and to rely on their own self determination. An even scarier scenario is that this President could realize his goal of collapsing the American economy and rebuilding it as a socialized society, unless Americans wake up soon. Much like Greece and Rome reached this point in their history, America is at the tipping point! Unless Americans wake up and regain the self-dependency demonstrated by our forefathers who shaped the greatest nation that the world has ever known, America will suffer the same demise! God help us!
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” – Alexander Fraser Tytler
Ironically, the United States of America is now 236 years old. Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid America, We are at War! Armageddon is at Hand! Please Wake up!
