Star Parker: On Eric Cantor!

Bill Smith, Editor: The following article by Star Parker in GOPUSA is a necessary review of the background relevant to the "secret useless debt talk meetings." She shares the facts and we all need to be sharing verses trying to cooperate with the Obama Administration.

It appears that some established elected Republicans may be believing their worst fears that Barack Obama really does not care about America and is hell bent on seeing America weakened in its status in the world. It also appears that the "do nothing" democrats are in fear. They had feared the retributions of the voters in 2010 because of their failed actions and their votes on unread bills. Those that survived seem to have now moved from their former "star struck" stage of Barack Obama to fear of their "beloved leader."

It is interesting that with today's conviction of former Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich, that democrats are again reminded not to cross Barack Obama. The threat of a trial was big motivator, but now, Blogo has been convicted. What was not told in the court house was the pressure and intimidation by the White House. Blogo thought he had the upper hand with Obama but instead he was eventually doomed. Most "wheeling and dealing" democrat governors would have felt safe with a Democrat president. But such was not to be the case with the Obama Administration. It is not that Blogo was doing something far worse than the present administration has perpetrated on Americans. The issue was that Blogo failed to comply with President Obama's wish to have his former Illinois U.S. Senate seat filled by his ever present confidant and senior adviser Valerie Bowman Jarrett. Today, elected democrats are likely lining up in the Obama support queue out of fear they could be "Blogo-ed."

The Republicans were politically forced into the behind closed door debt reduction meetings. Finally, they had enough of the meaningless process and walked out. After all, House and Senate Democrats could not agree to make needed cuts to reduce the Federal Government because they feared retribution by their leader! After all, Obama, had more than an ear to the closed door meetings. He had V.P Joe Biden chairing them and reporting back Obama's Chicago's political duo: Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrette and Chief of Staff Bill Dailey.

Thank you, Eric Cantor!

By Star Parker, GOPUSA: Thank you, Eric Cantor. Thank you for walking out on useless talks, presided over by Vice President Biden, addressing raising the limit on our nation's debt.

According to press accounts, Republican House Majority Leader Cantor called it quits on talks between Democratic and Republican leaders because Democrats refuse to give in on raising taxes.

This, I am sure, is true. But we also must understand the deeper and broader issue. We are in nothing less than hand-to-hand combat, fighting for what America is about and what it takes to get this country back on track toward growth and prosperity – determining whether we are, most fundamentally, a welfare state in which government runs the show, or whether this is a free country, in which free, private citizens run the show.

President Obama assumed the presidency in January 2009, and, until this year, Democrats have controlled both houses of Congress. Under their leadership, we've had massive government expansion and intervention into our economy in the name of saving it. The federal budget has grown by a trillion dollars, an expansion by one-third. Federal spending, historically 18 percent of our economy, is now 25 percent.

Now, 30 months later, the lowest unemployment rate America has known since Barack Obama has been president was the 7.8 percent where it stood in the first month he assumed office.

What should trouble every American is that there is not a hint from the White House or from Democratic leaders in Congress that they have erred and have taken our nation down the wrong path. There is not a hint that they have even considered that their ideas and approach are wrong.

What we are getting are jokes from our president, regarding the failure of the almost $900 billion "stimulus" package, that "shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected."

We are facing many dangers. And one of them is that Americans get used to the way things are. Unemployment currently stands at 9.1 percent. It has hovered between 9 and 10 percent for almost the entire Obama presidency.

From this perspective, we almost long for the 7.8 percent in January 2009. As this drags on, memories will fade that when the American economy is moving full tilt, unemployment is around 5 percent.

Let's also recall that back in January 2009 there were dissenting voices. In that same month, the Cato Institute ran full-page newspaper ads challenging the statement of our new president that "There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help jumpstart the economy."  The ad says, "With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true." The ad is signed by hundreds of economists, including several Nobel Prize winners.

The ad reviews the historic failures of similar attempts at economic revival through government expansion and concludes: "To improve the economy, policy makers should focus on reforms that remove impediments to work, saving, and investment and production. Lower tax rates and a reduction in the burden of government are the best ways to use fiscal policy to boost growth."

I wrote a column in February 2009 in response to which I'm still getting letters. I wrote then: "I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of poor black communities and replacing it with wealth-producing American capitalism. But, incredibly, we are going in the opposite direction. Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich America on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming more like poor America on socialism."

Any tax increases today simply accommodates the recent massive, misguided and destructive expansion of government. Spending cuts and rollback of government are our only hope.

Keep it up, Mr. Cantor.
