These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.
Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776

Lest you think only Joe Biden and the democrats are capable of vile, despicable statements, like calling fellow Americans “terrorists,” here’s President George W. Bush’s former Treasury Secretary comparing all of us to al Qaeda.
Folks, the problem isn’t just democrats, though they all must go, it’s the entire establishment, the Ruling Class, that must be destroyed. These corrupt bastards want to hold on to power and continue the rape of America. Their desperation is showing. It’s time for every American to stand up and say enough is enough. It’s getting just about time to start with the pitchforks, hot tar, and feathers.
From The Hill:
Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill compared lawmakers trying to block a debt-ceiling increase to terrorists.
Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill compared lawmakers trying to block raising the debt ceiling to “al Qaeda terrorists.”
“The people who are threatening not to pass the debt ceiling are our version of al Qaeda terrorists. Really,” O’Neill, Treasury secretary in the Republican administration of George W. Bush, said Wednesday in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s InBusiness with Margaret Brennan.
“They’re really putting our whole society at risk by threatening to round up 50 percent of the members of the Congress, who are loony, who would put our credit at risk,” O’Neill said.
His remarks come just a day after Obama administration Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner slammed recent discussions over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling as “ridiculous” and “irresponsible.”
Both O’Neill’s and Geithner’s comments are in response to House Republicans who have recently threatened to vote to raise the debt ceiling only if that also means passing certain other deficit-reduction proposals.
In the same interview, O’Neill said the debt-ceiling debate is a symptom of a broken political system.
“I do believe we have a broken political system that is capable of doing irresponsible things,” O’Neill said. “This whole conversation is irresponsible.“
Incredible. This is what all of the hacks in Washington think about us, the American people. We are nothing more than a hindrance to them. These corrupt bastards have been draining the treasury and enriching themselves far to long. To them, the American people are nothing but their private ATM, and anyone who tries to stop the withdrawals is an evil terrorist.
All the American people want is a responsible government that will get out of our way and let us prosper. What we have now is a tyrannical group of mad men [and women] who want to control every facet of our lives, while they pick our pockets and make themselves even richer.It’s immoral and quite evil.
It’s time to clean house at every level of government. We simply cannot allow these people to participate in the process any longer. They are all crooks and con men. They have destroyed our nation and should be made to pay for it.
Stand up and be counted my friends. Stand up and be counted.
