Does the government work for us -- we work for the government does the government even work tonight.
The dogs of debt in the dog days of summer.
It's been only a little more than a week of summer and we have some hot air from that city built on a swamp -- called Washington DC.
It took just two days into the season for senator Jon Kyl and congressman Eric Cantor to walk out on the debt negotiations.
And turn vice president Joseph Biden's talk shop and a -- -- -- -- monologues.
But maybe we ought to be grateful and all they do was talk.
Because when the government actually -- it only makes things worse.
Already this summer the White House agreed to release thirty million barrels of oil from the strategic petroleum reserves for an International Energy Agency action.
Even while it is refusing to -- offshore drilling and remains in contempt of a federal court order to allow the resumption of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
Instead president Obama's trying to kill colonel -- at the -- and -- of his buddies in Europe.
And the White House wanted to one -- spies on doctors but we helped -- that.
All that was in the first week of summer.
Today technology and free markets of speech.
Have made it exceedingly difficult for government to operate in secret or to keep the public ignorant of the implications of its policies.
From Fox News to Twitter from freedom watch to WikiLeaks the proliferation of media content Internet technologies and social networking.
Have served to amplify a tendency recognized to be uniquely American.
By as -- -- commentator as Alexis to -- a deal in the eighteenth century who wrote that an informed.
And engaged people are necessary.
For the preservation of freedom.
Yesterday President Obama threw down the gauntlet on the debt ceiling.
After dismissing the series of doomsday dates -- administration that -- and missed as markers for us getting into trouble he compared the situation we now face to.
A traffic light.
Yellow light is flashing he said while this time is right the yellow light is flashing that means slow down on spending.
And August 2 the light will turn red and the borrowing can stop.
After reiterating that August 2 was quote a hard deadline.
The president regurgitate of -- -- deployed since the inevitability of raising the debt ceiling was first called into question.
That the issue at hand is default.
But freedom -- viewers know.
That senator Pat Toomey.
And congressman Tom McClintock have introduced legislation called the full faith and credit act that would ensure the federal government.
Does not default if the debt ceiling has not raised.
Then remarkably the president compared the government to a household equipment try to get him to do that -- now but -- -- missed the mark.
The treasury collects about 220 billion dollars a month.
But the president wants to spend about 320 billion dollars a month.
-- -- freedom watch viewer like you he would -- the government finances ought to be operated like a households like your household the government must live within its means.
But there's economic truth is ignored by a government.
That wishes to print money out of -- there.
And spend the wealth of a generation has yet unborn.
So instead government relies on its own economists who plaudits from ivory towers when it -- and spends ever more money.
Tell -- to proclaim economic growth even in the midst of economic destruction.
And get -- to control the marketplace under control the individuals in the marketplace.
This is plainly a bankrupt and unconstitutional.
Way of thinking that cannot hold up to rational interrogation.
President was being intellectually dishonest as well when he said it was not his opinion but that quote consensus opinion.
That all the headwinds he said we are already experiencing in terms of recovery.
We'll get worse if the debt ceiling has not raised from Mr.
President there's not even any consensus opinion that the government must default of -- cannot borrow more let -- any consensus on whether the so called recovery.
You work -- -- it is actually working.
In fact we know it's not.
What is a patriot.
A patriot is informed.
And a patriot is engaged.
This weekend as the fourth of July holiday happy birthday America it is the highest of our high days -- patriotic splendor.
And the -- that the summer is really here.
And the work in Washington.
Not yet begun and so the senate loses its holiday break.
With the president to.
The federal government hits the debt ceiling and just more than a month it doesn't have to default are represented as ought to know that and so should the president.
These could be the dog days of summer that bring the great winds of change.
The federal government has -- more than fourteen trillion dollars against your children and your children's children and their children's freedom.
This summer we can tell it and not a penny.
