When Nancy Reagan was asked by a little kid when she was the First Lady "What should I do if someone asks me to smoke (i.e. or do drugs)? she said, "Just Say No!" That launched a campaign all across the nation in every school about standing up, taking personal responsibility, and just saying NO! to things that will do us harm. I would like to propose to extend this campaign to stretch to other areas of our lives that our government is doing that will harm us as individuals, families, businesses, and our nation. JUST SAY NO!
The latest from FoxNews.com: "Two top Democrats say they want to impose a new tax on the wealthy to finance any increase in U.S. troops for the Afghanistan war.
"Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., chairman of the purse string-controlling House Appropriations Committee, is calling the idea a "war surtax." He said that just as the federal government is expected to pay for its proposed intervention in the health care sector with new taxes, any escalated involvement in Afghanistan should come with a payment plan."
This all comes about with President Obama's looming decision on his strategy in Afghanistan that he plans to announce on December 1st. It's only been since August that his general, Stanley McCrystal, has requested 40,000 more troops. Rep. David Obey said if an increase like that is approved without any payment mechanism, then other domestic initiatives would be wiped out.
What other domestic initiatives would be wiped out dare I ask? Oh how about the trillion dollar overhaul of our nation's health care, cap and trade, and other programs designed to bring our nation to socialism and the redistribution of wealth.
Our nation and government cannot continue to spend money that we don't have. In our own household, if we continue to live beyond our means and continue to spend money that we don't have it will eventually catch up with us. What happens then? Do we get a government bail out? No. We have to seriously get our finances under control, balance our budget, stop spending, and just say no to stuff we don't need! Either that or claim bankruptcy and start it all over again without any lessons being learned.
JUST SAY NO! to this new proposed "War Surtax!"
JUST SAY NO! to health care reform!
JUST SAY NO! to cap and trade!
JUST SAY NO! to anymore frivolous government spending!
JUST SAY NO! to corruption!
We cannot let our government keep spending us into oblivion! Sooner or later it's going to catch up with us and inflation and interest rates are going to go through the roof and our nation will come to a standstill. JUST SAY NO!
