Obama Has No Plan At All

*SOLO-US Press Release: No Plan At All *

*November 23, 2008 *

*President-elect Barack Obama on Saturday outlined his plan to create 2.5 million jobs in coming years to rebuild roads and bridges and modernize schools while developing alternative energy sources and more efficient cars. * "Except he has not outlined any plan whatsoever," notes SOLO spokesman Scott DeSalvo. "The article does not outline any plan, just more goals and platitudes. (A lot like how Obama ran his Presidential campaign.)

"What he HAS done is attempt to position Congress so that whatever garbage bill he puts together and has sponsored by an Obama-ite will get passed, because if you vote against it, you are voting against 'the creation of 2.5 million jobs.' Perhaps 10 Congressmen, led by Ron Paul, will see through this pathetic ruse.

"The 'Plan' will include an expanded government, a government work program, and increased taxes on business to pay for it. Or some slight variation of same.

"For Obama, in contrast to the Founding Fathers, government, not the individual, is the solution to all problems and the source of all good. Of course he is going to expand the government into every area of our lives. It is the only answer to problems to be found in Socialism--another Committee, another political appointment, another tax.

"And so it will go for the next 8 years.

"The real solution to the economic crisis is simple. Shrinking government fractionally every year until it fulfills only those functions it is allowed to perform under our Constitution. Shrinking government programs which create dependence on the government for aid and sustenance every year fractionally until such programs are eliminated (both foreign aid to other nations and to our own citizens). Reducing taxes and eliminating the income tax. Eliminating the Fed and its ability to print unlimited supplies of imaginary money. Tying the dollar's value to gold. There will be hand-wringing, crying and wailing, as parasite and outright crooks find their free ride disappear. Then, stand back and watch as prosperity arrives," DeSalvo concludes.
