From the article:
In fact, the real secret is, the real truth is that -- even if there is the sequester, even if it happens -- we're going to spend more as a country this year than we did last year. That perhaps is the best way of 'splaining what's going on. We've got this abject panic. We've got a full-blown crisis unfolding before our eyes, and if it happens, we're gonna be spending more money this year than we did last year.
Now, I want to put it to you this way. If spending more money this year than we did last year is going to bring this country to its knees, shouldn't that tell us that the government has way too much control over our lives? Shouldn't that tell us that they have seriously overreached? Shouldn't that tell us that we are way too dependent on government if all of this can happen while we spend $15 billion more than we spent last year? Even look at it in the previous way I mentioned it, cutting spending by one cent on the dollar. Every dollar we spend, we're gonna cut a penny. If even that is gonna bring the country to its knees, if that is going to cause all of these disasters, the cops say bye-bye, the first responders, out of there. The list, by the way, keeps expanding, this disaster list.
Isn't it safe to say that this is way out of whack, way too much government, way too much involved in our lives, way too much control, seriously have overreached. What would the founders think to hear about all the things our supposedly limited federal government has its tentacles on? Everything from school teachers to school principals, meat inspectors. It's stunning.
