Lower taxes limit government controls

There are 2 comments on the Lebanon Daily News story from Dec 16, 2010, titled Lower taxes limit government controls. In it, Lebanon Daily News reports that:

Despite the best efforts of certain members of Congress to further extend the tenets of class warfare espoused by the Obama administration, which is to say, the long-time goal of the progressive movement to undermine the U.S. Constitution, it appears that massive tax increase scheduled to take place in three weeks will not happen.

"Lower taxes limit government controls"

You're halfway there Diamond Dan. Spending must also come down, i.e. we cannot afford empire, Medicare Part D, defense welfare and corporate fascism among many other things. Bush the Lesser's spending increases made LBJ blush. It's a shame that he didn't find his veto crayon before 2006.

Lower taxes/spending means a smaller pie for lobbyists to chase. Liberals cannot seem to fathom that bigger government inevitably leads to more lobbying, favors and corporate fascism. Instead, they waste their time trying an end-run around the Constitution (no thanks to John McCain, either).

When the SC decision doesn't go their way, they distort the ruling by claiming that the SC gave corporations (a group of people) the same right as people. Notwithstanding the fact that Citizens United did no such thing, the First Amendment, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights, applies to and restricts the federal government.

"Congress shall make no law...." does not distinguish between citizens, illegal immigrants, the Dutch, etc.

Sernoffsky, please stick to sports. You are a pathetic "Glenn Beck wannabe". George W Bush had 8 years to ruin the economy and it's all Obama's fault, after just 2 years in office. Before your hate rants are published, the Editor should perform a more thorough review of your amateur and straight from the mouths of Fox News talking-heads columns. You have no original ideas and obviously, no talent as a political reporter!
