Republic of Fear II – The Fear Speech
The One Who We Have Been Waiting For says we have nothing but fear.
Be Afraid! Be Very Afraid! Give us your children’s earnings are ALL IS LOST!
Oh my Lord, how many times have we heard charlatans trying to frighten people into buying something they don’t want or need? This is the high pressure sales tactics of used car salesmen and TV evangelists.
For years now, the Democrats and their dogs in the press have carried on about how bad the economy is in order to discredit Bush. When unemployment dropped below 5% there were liberals describing it as a depression. They wanted a recession on election day in order to accumulate more power. I believe it was Chuck Schumer who shortly after one of the big bank bankruptcies announced that a big insurance company was about to go under. None did, but the market tanked on the news nonetheless. For normal people, that would be called stock manipulation. It’s about instilling a climate of fear to convince people to cede their futures to the Democrats.
The Democrats have engineered this recession, from disastrous banking regulations to doing anything they can do or say to undermine consumer confidence. Obama’s Fear Speech is just another chapter. None of this is about helping the country. It is all about accumulating power and implementing 40 years of pent up liberal policies.
The “Stimulus” Bill must die. Write your congresscritters right now. Get your friends and family to get to theirs. I wrote mine today through their web forms. Kit Bond (R) I told to keep the faith. Clare McCaskill (D) I’ve advised to keep in mind that Missouri is not as liberal as where she lives now. There is a phone number for contacting members of congress that is apparently down all the time. I’ll take that as an indication that they’re getting flooded with calls. The web site still works though. Use it. Now.
Update: It was Chuck Schumer, not Chris Dodd doing the stock manipulation.
