Yesterday, Matt Gaetz, Republican congressman from Florida, led a coalition to oust Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy from his leadership role in the House. Some people think that this was the right thing to do, while others believe that this will prove to be a complete disaster. It makes absolutely no difference. It is the equivalent of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic as it’s sinking. Regardless of who the Speaker of the House is, Kevin McCarthy or Steve Scalise or Hakeem Jeffries, the United States of America is being destroyed right before our eyes from the inside out. This is another one of those events that the average American is supposed to get all worked up over, while those in power continue with the business as usual of screwing the average American.
We have a $33 trillion debt, and we are staring at another $1 trillion deficit in 2024, so it doesn’t really matter who the Speaker of the House is if no one is willing to do anything about government spending. If we continue doing the same old things over and over again, spending more than we are taking in, running up a debt that our grandchildren and great grandchildren will have to pay back, we are headed for total collapse. Our $33 trillion of debt is one of the most selfish things that has ever been done in American history. Certain people are benefitting from this debt that will have to be paid back by future generations, people who are not even born, yet. They benefit, someone else pays. And one of the biggest drivers of all this debt, is the green new deal. Yet, so-called environmentalists keep telling us about how we want to leave the planet environmentally in the best place for future generations, but the environment will not matter to those future generations if they are all impoverished and strangled by insurmountable debt.
The Republicans have the power of the purse in the House. They could use it to help bring down the debt, for border security, to stifle the poisonous woke agenda that is spreading throughout our government, public schools, and other institutions. But they have done nothing. This week, in the small town of Bemidji, Minnesota, it was discovered that 11 illegal alien men have been running a house of horrors where young girls are brought in to be gang raped. That is what Joe Biden and the Democrats have imported into this country since his inauguration. On Monday, Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, smugly announced that there’s 10,000 migrants per day coming to the United States. The world is laughing at us, mocking our inevitable decline.
At Hazelbrook Middle school in Oregon, a boy pretending to be a girl, has been caught on video multiple times, terrorizing the school, viciously attacking innocent young girls and the authorities at the school did absolutely nothing to stop it for fear of backlash from the LBGTQ mob that dictates our culture these days. This is the country we now live in, and we are supposed to worry about who the Speaker of the House is? This is all part of the liberal plan to destroy America – bury us under debt; bury us under millions of illegal immigrants; crash our economic system; erase our national sovereignty; destroy our culture; change our morality – all to weaken America.
The United States Federal Government is the biggest scam that is ever been perpetrated on a group of citizens in the history of the world – bar none – not even close. In 2022, we took in $4.9 trillion of revenue, and spent $6.3 trillion; we have $33 trillion of debt, and look at our country. The schools are failing; the public hospitals provide inadequate care; Social Security is not enough for seniors to live on and is about to be insolvent; Medicare doesn’t cover medical cost; crime is rampant in our cities; drug overdoses are at all-time high; homelessness is that an all-time high; our military is failing – we couldn’t even surrender and pull out of Afghanistan without completely embarrassing ourselves. So where does the $6.3 trillion go? What do we have to show for the $33 trillion of debt? There were a lot of millionaires and billionaires created from that $33 trillion of debt, but that doesn’t help you and me.
Just remember what this battle is really all about though, whose millionaire and billionaire donors get the lion’s share of the $6.3 trillion annual budget. Congress is not fighting over how best to spend the $6.3 trillion to help you or I, or any of the 300 million average Americans. They do not care about us, Republican, Democrat, Independent, none of them do. Never have. Never will. It doesn’t matter who the Speaker of the House is. The United States federal government is designed to screw the average American, and they do it so well that they have the audacity to scare us into believing that we will be harmed if the government which screws us a daily basis is shut down temporarily. They tell us that a government shutdown is an existential threat to America but carrying $1 trillion+ deficits year after year isn’t.
It makes absolutely no difference who the Speaker of the House is, if he’s not willing to fight to reduce the debt, fight to secure our borders, fight the globalist and woke agendas, it makes no difference. At some point, we must decide that we are no longer going to play the same old game over and over again where regardless of who is the President is or who holds the gavel in Congress, we are continually led down the road to more and more debt and more and more liberalism.
That is the battle of Conservatives. Whenever a Conservative compromises with a Liberal, the Conservative loses and the Liberal wins. That’s it. We want to conserve America; they want to destroy America. If you are dealing with somebody who wants to destroy the Constitution, you cannot compromise with them at all. Every compromise destroys a part of the Constitution. Every compromise with a liberal who wants to destroy America, destroys a piece of America. This has been the steady road of our decline for the last 40 years – small incremental compromises of Americanism with those who hate America. Every compromise that a Conservative makes moves us away from the great American principles that we are trying to conserve.
This is what Conservatives are up against. We only win, when we win out right. And even in that, we don’t really win anything because all we have done is kept everything the same. Every compromise is a loss. That’s what these people cannot understand. As Conservatives, we are fighting a losing battle. It’s like dealing with the devil. You can never compromise with the devil on anything. You can reject the devil 10 times, but the 11th time you compromise with him, is a complete and total defeat for you. That why the Left always harps on compromise, because they know every compromise is a complete win for them and a total defeat for us. There is no win-win situation when the goals of the two parties involved at diametrically opposed.
That is what people like Kevin McCarthy don’t understand. They believe that the Democrats in America today are our friends. They are our fiercest enemies. If given the chance, they would slit our throats and not think twice about it. They actually put a 69-year-old grandmother with cancer in a DC jail cell for two months because she trespassed at the Capital on January 6th and committed no act of violence. They didn’t even let her get her cancer treatment. They gave a medal to a 200-pound male police officer who shot and killed an unarmed 130-pound woman from 20 feet away. Those are the type of people we are dealing with when we compromise with Democrats. Everything that they are, is about, assuming as much power for themselves as possible. They do not care about the average American. That’s why they encouraged the 500 BLM riots in our country from June to December 2020 that destroyed many parts of our major cities. They didn’t care how many businesses were burned to the ground; they didn’t care how many people were killed – the riots work to their political advantage, so they encouraged them. Those are the people you compromise with when you cut deals with Democrats.
Any compromise with the devil is a loss. Any compromise with a party who wants to destroy America is a loss for America. We are supposed to think that Kevin McCarthy was fighting the Democrats tooth and nail. He allowed former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to continue to reside in her lavish Speaker’s office even though she was no longer in a leadership position in the House. Did he not remember all the damage she caused the United States of America as Speaker, how partisan she was every step of the way, how she continually tried to destroy President Trump and the Republicans, how she tore up President Trump’s State of the Union Address right in front of him? She should have been thrown out of that office ten months ago. She would have thrown you out of that office, Kevin, on the first day. I would rather lose than compromise with someone who wants to destroy everything that I hold dear.
Compromise is a great thing, if we were dealing with a party who actually believed in America and truly loved the principles on which America was founded. But the Democrats hate America and want to destroy America. Thats why they tear down statues and erase history. Thats why they have opened our borders, destroyed what it means to be a United States citizen, erased our national sovereignty, are shredding our Constitution, running up $33 trillion in debt and devaluing our dollar to the point it is slightly more valuable than monopoly money, and we are supposed to care who’s holding the gavel when all of that is taking place?
