So, this election was a “referendum” on the “excesses” of the Democrats, hm?
Ok, fine, let’s cut taxes.
But then you CANNOT complain when more public schools are shut down and class sizes grow even larger due to more funding cuts and the kids that do manage to graduate can’t do the high tech jobs our economy needs to keep growing (we’re already having a hard time with this).
And you also CANNOT complain when people can no longer afford to go to college because there are no government subsidized loans or government grants to help cover tuition and expenses.
And you also CANNOT complain when your house burns down because there aren’t enough fire fighters due to funding cuts.
And you also CANNOT complain when the police officers don’t show up for two hours after you call 911 because they don’t have enough people to respond to all their calls due to funding cuts.
And you also CANNOT complain when crime goes up due to stripped down police department, fewer courts to process the criminals, and fewer spaces in the prisons to house the criminals (leading to the release of many convicted criminals).
And you also CANNOT complain when the roads get progressively worse and a pothole blows out your tire or a bridge collapses under your vehicle on your way to work.
And you also CANNOT complain when the airports in small cities shut down and flight delays get worse because the government can’t afford the upkeep on the airport – OR airline tickets get even more expensive as the cost for airlines to land at airports go up significantly in an effort to pay for the upkeep.
And you also CANNOT complain when the concepts of Keynesian economics are rejected and the government stops putting money into the economy leading to a shrinking GDP due to lack of funds to purchase products causing unemployment to rise.
And you also CANNOT complain when you retire and your 401k doesn’t cover all your expenses and you don’t have social security to help pay for your basic needs.
And you also CANNOT complain when you reach 65, cannot afford private healthcare due to the aforementioned lack of funds, and there’s no Medicare to cover your basic health needs.
And you also CANNOT complain when your employer doesn’t cover health insurance for you because they aren’t required to. And you still can’t complain when you can’t afford to cover insurance for you and your children and Medicaid no longer exists, and you or your kid breaks an arm, or gets chicken pox, or pneumonia, and suddenly you have a bill that is $20,000 with no way to pay it.
And you also CANNOT complain when crime goes up because the homeless population grows exponentially due to no social safety net, whether in the form of welfare, subsidized housing, or unemployment, to help people when they lose their jobs and cannot find new ones.
And you also CANNOT complain when you are denied a loan to start a small business because the government can no longer afford to subsidize them.
And you also CANNOT complain when the U.S. falls behind in technological advancement because the government can no longer afford to invest in research and development. And no, private business won’t, because they only care about things that make a profit, and unfortunately the most significant advances in science and technology have not come through profit making enterprises.
And you also CANNOT complain when your house is destroyed in a flood/fire/landslide/etc. and the government does not show up to help rescue you nor do they provide any federal fiscal assistance to help you rebuild because there is no money to fund FEMA.
Of course, we’ll still have nuclear bombs, so I guess we’ll be fine.
