Government checkbook a threat

We should be worried about government spending. Some will benefit from short-term gain, while the long-term pain will haunt us for many decades. Hyperinflation is possible and ’70s-style inflation almost assured.

Government intervention in the economy is socialism. This fact seems lost on generations of Democrats and Republicans alike who have steadily increased the scope of the federal government. Apparently it’s not socialism if you or your friends benefit from it.

Small businesses, family farms and the middle class pay the bills that keep the welfare state afloat. It’s time to become informed, to connect with like-minded people, and to vote for those who base their decisions on the Constitution. It’s time to stand for economic, social and political freedom.
