No. I refuse. I know the real America. I know real American citizens. I will not betray them, or my country by lowering my expectations one whit! I am an American citizen. I know the America I see is entirely up to me. Democracy is a blessed gift that has been given to me to protect. That I will do. The greatness of America is entrusted to her citizens...all of them. No.
Spend. Spend like the hounds of hell. Spend on infrastructure. Build roads, bridges, and the institutions of a civilized society. Spend. Spend on providing food to the many millions of this land who are hungry. Create Green industry, quickly. Yes, spend.
The Private Sector is sitting on hundreds of trillions of dollars that they are not, save forceful action, going to release into the economy. The corporatists are not going to create AMERICAN jobs, while hording their stolen taxes due in Zug, Switzerland. They will offhhore to Korea and Vietname, where $0.34 per hour is executive wage. Spend. Public sector jobs are being forecefully drained by Tea Party Terrorists, who only wish to live long enough to see the total elimination of the American middle class, and the reformation of the United States into the corportist theocracy they believe it should be, absent, gays, black, women, intelligent citizens, and those who believe that democracy is worth dying for.
Spend, until it is enough. Remove this dreadful constitutional lynch mob from our presence through the election of progressives who understand that when there are no jobs, there IS no economy. Retrieve the stolen tax payments, jail the perpetrators of the financial debacle, and reclaim the American Dream for all the people of this land.
Spend, until the coffers once again overflow with the hard-earned tax dollars of her citizens, who demand our democracy back. Remove the evil Bush Tax cuts, and return fairness and equality to the American landscape. If you are unwilling to properly and timely pay the taxes on the billions you have so selfishly gained, at the cost of so many, your physical plants must be siezed, your Boards jailed as the corporate criminals they are, and your "citizenship" of this nation revoked. Rather a man with a knife, whittling a clothes pin than a machine stealing our wealth and our future.
Spend, I say. Seize back to the Treasury the balance owed. Feed the hungry, heal the sick, and allow our veterans and seniors to live their days with dignity, respect, and healthcare. Educate our children, our hope for tomorrow. Yes, spend. Do it now. Repeal this ridiculous panel of 12. This is NOT representation! It is left to the people to defend their nation from these corporatists, and ultra-conservative right wing nut jobs. They are not different, and they do not wish our nation well. They are evil, and wish only for the elimination of our land.
That's what I would do.
