Like many Americans, I am donating to the recovery efforts for "Perfect Storm" Sandy, and I recommend we all give what we can. I also salute the actions of both presidential candidates, as each has performed well in his position under the circumstances. Their example, along with our united response, can bring hope to the Northeast.
Some estimate the damage to be around $25 Billion, though this number will likely rise. But let's look at that amount, shall we? Let's get some perspective:
For the past 4 years, $25 Billion is roughly how much this Administration has added to our National Debt.....every week. Yes, you read that correctly. If a new "Sandy" were to pummel America's shores every week for 4 years, this would equal the fiscal burden President Obama has placed on America's children--on their future.
$25 Billion per week. Robbing upcoming generations, this Administration charges today's supposed "recovery" on our kids' credit cards, all while convincing young voters we're "investing" on their behalf.
Just look at the Northeast. Imagine the long road we face in rebuilding those proud cities; and more importantly, the livelihoods of all who survived. And then, look forward. Look ahead to Americans working several months per year just to pay down a debt inflicted on them "for their benefit." Think of the hopelessness. Think of the anger.
Better yet, don't look forward at all. Look eastward.....to Greece. Rioting in the streets, bricks hurling through shop windows, cars on fire, young people raging against the very measures needed to save them--this future awaits America's children.
Seen enough? Then find some voters, and tell them how the financial damage of Sandy is already hitting America every week. Tell them about Hurricane Obama, and what he's costing their children. Just tell them.
And while doing that good deed, do another: Help the victims of Sandy. Remember, whether facing a natural disaster or a weekly fiscal one, we're all in this together.
