The clinching piece of evidence to convict Americans: they are engrossed in an argument over $800 billion in taxes over ten years while spending a trillion dollars every year more than they bring in.

What other evidence confirms this verdict?

Reelecting Obama. Out to prove Einstein correct voters living in the worst economic recovery, the worst stretch of unemployment since the Depression, clamoring for jobs reelected a man who proposed doing more of the same.

Ben Bernanke. Like sheep led to the slaughter Bernanke announced the Fed duties no longer are limited to monetary policy, it was now in charge of fiscal policy and would inflate the currency by $85 billion every month until unemployment falls below 6.5%.

This is an utter act of insanity in plain sight, however the indoctrinated masses are unaware due to a media who is unaware. The inflation bomb just keeps getting bigger. The unknown factor is nobody knows when the timer will detonate the bomb. Certifiably nuts.

Eliminate the debt ceiling. The progressive’s dream come true, an unlimited credit card to buy votes forever while violating the Constitution, the Democrats favored pastime. In days of old should any president have suggested eliminating the debt ceiling they would have immediately been placed in a straight jacket. But not in today’s America. Lock the door and throw away the key on this one.

Tax the rich. Raising taxes on the productive class at a time jobs are desperately needed, and the GDP is shrinking towards recession is like trading your cow for a gallon of milk. Certifiably nuts.

Paranoid gullibility. How else can you describe a people who believes time and again the same lies? They’re just like the abused wife who takes her man back again when he tells her it will be better this time. Absolutely nuts.

Is there hope or a cure? Can sanity be regained among the populace?

The jury is out, however there were slivers of hope this week. Illinois’ ban on concealed carry was ruled unconstitutional and the state was given six months to implement a law permitting what the Constitution already guarantees. The right to bear arms.

Then Michigan the birthplace of the UAW, became a right to work state. To think in a state where the UAW through the force of law, mandated involuntary servitude into their Democratic Party money laundering machine, will now allow an individual the choice whether or not they want to join a union. A definite sign of sanity and a victory for individual liberty.
