We've become a beggar nation

December 12, 2012 

So shameful. We have become beggar nation in just four short years. It's been just over a month now since we have all been resigned to another four years of chaos, more taxes upon taxes, no jobs on the way. We are on the brink of another war in the Middle East, along with more dead Americans.

When is this insanity going to stop? The national debt is about to crush us all and these politicians just want to kick the can down the road and tax us until our eyes bulge out of our heads, especially here in California, where they now have a supermajority. Do you even understand what unlimited power that gives these tax-and-spend politicians? Apparently not, but you will.

California was once a great state. Hope for the future, no hope now, but the stark cold truth: They are coming for your wallet.
