NEW MATH. . . . . .

When George H. W. Bush characterized an opponent’s economic plan as, ‘Voodoo Economics’, it was a graphic description that had quite an impact on the other guy’s campaign. And, there were references to other economic plans as, “All Smoke and Mirrors”. At this same time, there was an intriguing subject being taught in our public schools know curiously as, ‘New Math’.

I submit that never before in the entire recorded history of this world has there been anything to rival the economic manipulations so shrouded in deceit and obfuscation as we are witnessing today, being perpetrated upon all the citizens of the United States by this President and his team of practitioners of ‘Marxist New Math’, today’s version of, ‘Voodoo Economics’.

Now, we find ourselves in a much deeper national deficit hole than at any time in our history. There can be little doubt that this is due in large measure, to the unprecedented, out-of-control spending by this administration pursuing the ludicrous concept that, ‘we can spend our way out of debt’. Despite having it clearly explained to us by Prof. Obama in articulate, well-modulated tones with the added emphasis of his serious demeanor – it doesn’t take a very sharp cat to recognize that the ‘smoke & mirrors’ rhetoric he reads off his Teleprompter, is the ultimate in sheer lunacy.

It is in addition, an egregious insult to the intelligence of the American people to be preached down to by this inept, unaccomplished Chicago street thug who was vaulted into the presidency for all the wrong reasons.
Obama was elected largely as a result of the Left-leaning media that had kindled, then fanned the flames of hatred against former Pres. George W. Bush. Also, a quite sizeable portion of our population was nearly orgasmic in its desire to see a ‘first black president’ take office. Then, rounding out the victory, the ‘something-for-nothing’ crowd voted for Obama with wild enthusiasm as they drooled in anticipation of their dream come true – his promise of redistributing the nation’s wealth.

I believe the time has come to put a screeching halt to the disastrous economic shenanigans of this elected ‘organizer’ and his horde of un-elected czars – who are so overly-educated in failed economic theory but, so inexperienced in the real world of finance. I suggest that we take a step back in time to recall our favorite grade school teacher of old-fashioned “reading, writing and ‘rithmetic”, who taught us that: 2+2 = 4.
Furthermore, she could prove it without the use of mirrors or a Teleprompter.

We must start the process of re-education and restoration by seeking out and supporting men and women who respect the Constitution and embrace traditional, principled conservative values. We need to encourage them to run for public office. We need to elect them to serve at all levels of government – local, state and national. And then, we need to continue providing them with all possible support. But, we also need to watch closely for any signs of ‘going-along-to-get-along’ that might lead to relegating the concerns of their constituents to any position other than, first in line.
Repeat after me: 2 + 2 = 4

When you have 90% of the people in this Administration who don't have any private sector business experience running the show, you know that we are in deep do-do. The vast majority of Obama's cabinet and czars are lawyers and public sector workers (gov't. workers) who never had to meet a payroll, make business decisions, try to make a profit in order to survive, and have to face the myriad of government regulations and bureauacracy, run by people who never held a private sector job in their lives. We should have come out of this recession by now, but due to the ineptness of Obama and his cronies who don't have a clue, we are stuck in this economic mess because we a stuck on stupid. We need new blood in Wash. D.C. and we can start by electing free enterprise candidates to office like Lt.Col. Allen West (22nd C.D.), Ed Lynch (19th C.D.), and Marco Rubio to the U.S. Senate.
