Probably like you, I’m very concerned about the massive overspending that the federal government is embarking on, and what it means to my kid’s future and freedoms, and eventual survival of our Constitution. We have a massive spending problem, and neither the Republicans, nor the Democrats seem to fully embrace fiscal restraint!
I’d like to call on the American People to start pushing for a Constitutional Balanced Budget Amendment (balanced year-to-year, or bi-year). This amendment should require a two-thirds super majority vote: (1) to not balance a budget (emergency); (2) to increase taxes above inflation (or anything that looks like a tax, or mandate); or (3) to borrow money. It should also contain language that states that congressional members that vote to break a balanced budget without an approved two-thirds emergency vote should not be allowed to run for their seat in the next election cycle (accountability).
It’s time that the American people force fiscal responsibility on our elected officials. We need to stop this madness of pursuing reckless irresponsible fiscal policies that are destroying the country, and stop offering up indentured servitude of our children to the government! If we do not stop this run-away train we are dooming future generations to fewer financial freedoms, a lower living standard, and potentially a war to untangle the mess we left them.
Call and write your congressman and demand fiscal responsibility, and tell them you will hold them accountable at the ballot box! Stop being pushed, and start doing the pushing!
