He Still Does Not Get It

Today President Obama, scheduled to meet with Congressional leaders said "The people have sent a message...", and then went on to describe what he sees as "the message".

He said the message is simply to focus on jobs, don't waste so much money and change the tone in Washington.

Wishful thinking, Mr. President. Not only is that NOT the message, but you apparently choose to ignore all those who told you EXACTLY what their message is. So, in case you missed it, here it is again...

The folks want SMALLER GOVERNMENT. They want to CUT SPENDING. They want to INCREASE PERSONAL FREEDOM from government intrusion so they can grow.

The people know that such things will empower the people and result in growth and jobs.

In short, Mr President - and all establishment politicians who just don't "get it" - it is really very simple...

YOUR job is to keep the nation safe from its enemies, and provide for the general welfare (not individual welfare) of the nation as a whole, and then just GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY! The people will do the rest, as they always have.

Yes, there will be winners and losers - but that is how it SHOULD be. No one can win unless someone else loses. And if no one wins, we cannot grow or prosper as a nation. You simply stagnate.

If you have ever played poker, you know what I'm saying.

Washington, wake up and smell the Tea. Make America a friendly and safe place for business, and then just get out of our way.

It really is as simple as that - and does not require trillions of spending or debt.
