Republican Sarah Palin said on Friday an explosion of government spending and debt under President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats had put the United States on “the road to ruin.”
In a tribute to former President Ronald Reagan, the potential 2012 White House contender said leaders in Washington had lost sight of the values that made Reagan a Republican icon and a hero to conservatives – a belief in limited government, low taxes and personal freedoms.
This nation needs to reign in a government gone wild with spending and lack of self control. As the economy sinks further towards to more people losing everything those in Washington are enjoying a hay day of spending and luxuries while paying lip service to righting what ails this nation.
People need to stay vigilant not only toward democrats but republicans as well who have adopted democrat values.
Sarah Palin has voiced an opinion that is more in line of what people want as opposed to the republican old guard that wants to continue on the course of socialism.
I am tired of the lip service I have seen over many years from politicians who mouth platitudes and feel good rhetoric and tell us the nation needs to reverse the head long rush toward emulating European countries with their failed systems of government.
I want to see a government that is not bent on placing a jack boot on the throats of citizens and businesses all in the name of progress. That “progress” can be seen in countries like Venezuela and others where the citizens are opposed by the government.
We have a constitution here that needs to followed and not used as a rag by the various politicians that have said they support the nation and then do their best to undermine the principles in the constitution.
