Don’t Forget To Vote For Your Congressman!

November 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Somewhere, buried under the dust of the Presidential election hype and hoopla are the Congressional elections. It is easy to forget that, despite the promises of the executives-to-be, the real control of financial matters rests in the hands of congress. Therefore, it is important to vote for the best candidates running for federal office in your state and congressional district.

Vote!

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Here is my twist on a popular nursery rhyme. The intent is to illustrate the
inevitable generosity of a free market economy. Enjoy.

Liberty Sheep 
An adaptation of Baa, Baa, Black Sheep 
by Tom Wright (Tru Blu)

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep have you any wool?  
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full! 

One for my master and one for the dame. 
One for the little boy who lives down the lane. 

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep did you volunteer? 
Yes sir, yes sir, I gladly let them shear. 

I freely gave of my wool out of charity. 
They were poor and needed help, but now they're warm you see. 

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep was this your income tax? 
No sir, no sir, just one thoughtful act. 

Because the market is free I have so much to share. 
The government's not needed to chain them to welfare. 

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep have you any wool? 
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

You Can Vote for Either Big Government Party

Since 1945 neither party has shown significant resolve to truly limit government. As the chart shows, government spending has only steadily increased over the past half a century. We need less spending and for at least the Republican party to act on their rhetoric and do what they claim to want to do. LIMIT the government.

There’s a nice little chart on the web that shows steady government growth from 1940 through 2001 regardless of which party is in power. With this one picture, a thousand words about why there is little difference between the parties become unnecessary. Two quick conclusions can be drawn from the data. The Republican Party has been given sixty post-New Deal years to show that it can shrink or even limit government. It has failed and there is no reason to think it will ever succeed as presently constituted. Second, the conservative movement, which, unlike the libertarian movement, has held center stage in American politics since 1964 and held real power many times, has failed insofar as it purports to believe in smaller or even limited government.
