We have spent our way into a $33 trillion debt. And that doesn’t include unfunded mandates, etc. No country has ever previously survived such a massive-- apparently permanent—debt.
We have spent countless billions of dollars to provide loans for students to attend college, dramatically driving up the cost of attending these institutions, even as they turn kids against their parents and their country. And now the Biden administration is “forgiving” many of these loans; though, unless university employees have decided to work for free, someone will have to pay for them…now or later.
We have spent trillions of dollars to combat poverty, via the “Great Society” program and others. The poverty rate is no different now than it was before, our society arguably less “great.” What we do have is a greater number of homeless people, higher rates of crime, and a burgeoning sense of angst.
The U.S. government also spent trillions—there’s that word again—on COVID-19 stimulus payments, much of which was misdirected, misappropriated, or misspent.
And Democrats want to embark on The Green New Deal, which would likely destroy the economy and fatally bankrupt the nation, all while doing next to nothing to counteract “global warming” or “climate change.”
Uncle Sam is paying to fly illegal aliens around the country and put them up in fine hotels-- or set them up in apartments and homes, replete with a starter allowance for furnishing them.
The Biden administration left billions and billions of dollars worth of top-shelf military equipment in Afghanistan, to the amazement and delight of the Taliban. Some of which has apparently now been funneled to the likes of Hamas and Hezbollah. It has deliberately devastated our domestic energy sector and drained down our strategic oil reserve at a time when multiple conflicts rock the world. Incredibly, we now go begging for oil from the hated Russians (who are at war with Ukraine)-- and Saudi Arabia-- when we were energy independent just three short years ago.
And, as if all that were not enough, we have removed sanctions from Iran and agreed to hand them more than $6 billion…which they will almost certainly spend on their nuclear program and/or send to their terrorist proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah. Who will then use this largess to fund further attacks on our Israeli ally……or ourselves.
So, in a very real—indeed literal—sense, our progressive elites are paying for our own destruction. The rest of us are allowing this to happen.
It doesn’t get any dumber than that.
