1. We have witnessed three amazing spectacles from the political class over the past week: the Uniparty wake (aka the McCain funeral), the Democrat tantrums during the Kavanaugh hearings, and Obama’s ranting against @POTUS.
“Not one of these Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee showed the judge an iota of respect.”
Read the rest here:
a. The New Deal (FDR; prolonged the Great Depression)
b. The Fair Deal (Truman’s watered-down extension of the New Deal)
c. The Great Society (LBJ’s boondoggle)
d. The War on Poverty (also LBJ; $15T spent with no real impact on the poverty rate)
g. Stimulus bills (aka deficit spending) (Bush 43 started, then Obama added $10T to the national debt over 8 years)
a. Strict term limits (10 years total federal service)
b. Return of unconstitutional federal functions to the states
c. Repeal of the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act (which gave us baseline budgeting and ever-growing federal budgets since it was passed).
d. Strict enforcement of existing laws and adherence to oaths of office
e. Passage of new anti-corruption laws (including close monitoring of the net worth of politicians and family members)
f. Passage of laws preventing lobbying by former congressmen, senators and senior staff (no one makes a buck off their “public service”).
