As the American debt Armageddon approaches the Left (Democrats, Progressives, Liberals, Socialists, whatever) lead by our President are harping about a “balanced approach.” Americans seem to be vulnerable to arguments about “compromise” and “balance” and the Left is attempting to capitalize on that naiveté.
What exactly does “balanced” mean to the rest of us? The simple answer is that the President and his Party want to mix solutions that absolutely do not work with solutions that Speaker Boehner and his Party are proposing that do work. After reading that statement if you brand me a “partisan” then consider for a moment what liberal inspired program ever worked. Can you name one?
The way Liberals flip this around is by demanding to be judged on their intent rather than by the results of their programs. Social Security, Welfare, Medicaid, Income Taxes, Unemployment, and all Government employee retirement plans are all spectacular failures. We are broke and our situation can be directly tied to the misuse of power by Democrats. What is “balanced” about listening to the children who got us into this problem in the first place? It’s absurd.
