“Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.”
— Charles de Gaulle, statesman
$1.50 of debt for every $1.00 of GDP for 100 years
$3.00 of debt for every $1.00 of GDP by the Mid-90’s
$6.00 of debt for every $1.00 of GDP by 2006 or 2007
This is not the trajectory of Greatness…
The numbers above, taken from the interview with Reagan’s Budget Director David Stockman linked below, should be frightening enough. But they eclipse “shorts-soiling”-HORROR when you consider the purchasing power of the dollar, rising commodity prices and the ratio trend of workers to retirees!
…BECAUSE we are absent Great Men, we are on the path to ruin!
- When we were 3 million, they were everywhere. Now we’re 300 million…not so much?
- When de Gaulle ruled France…there were many. Today even our sports heroes have to dope to be Great!
- When Stockman served Reagan…there was Reagan & a few more. Today, the Greatest position in the land is held by a FRAUD, with the evidence mounting to support that fact thanks to Sheriff Arpaio! Ann lays it out nicely http://barnhardt.biz/ (Hmm…the Greatness to Debt Correlation Index…very interesting! I wonder if my friends at Zero Hedge have plotted this yet?)
Have you ever stopped to think, “When did Greatness decouple from Courage, Conviction, Principles, Honor, Virtue, Faith, Success and PATRIOTISM?” Could there possibly be another interesting correlation here? Could the fact that these virtuous qualities have been replaced by the demonizing of success over the reward of failure and validation of victimhood? Is our own government in the process of replacing GOD with its own Liberation Theology? The very movement (OWS) they’ve endorsed has declared war on Capitalism http://www.theblaze.com/stories/video-reveals-occupy-strategy-to-abolish-capitalism-with-seiu-help/ and chased it out of Chicago!!!!
The man who promised to Vet the Fraud this time around is suddenly dead…at 43, while those who would assume the throne dance to the mediocre music of compromise on the dance floor of political correctness…where Greatness is no longer welcome!
My heart literally sank this week to watch David Gregory manipulate Eric Cantor like a wooden doll, “journalism” more concerned with the motives of the Sheriff than the established illegitimacy of the President of the United States…and Limbaugh’s apology to the very people who have elevated Fraud to the Throne and sent Greatness packing!http://www.theblaze.com/stories/former-reagan-budget-director-despairs-i-wouldnt-touch-the-stock-market-with-a-100-foot-pole/
