The butcher McCain!

Senator McCain,

You have said for months that when you are President you will veto any bill with an earmark and make the author famous. Why not start now? Tell the American people about the earmarks in the initial bailout bill that caused you to initially side with the house republicans. Make the authors famous!

Also, the next time Obama or anyone else mocks you for focussing on $18billion in earmarks, explain that earmarks are just one cut of the pig that is devouring Washington. They are easy and obvious to explain, but there is much more. Then make like a butcher and tell us about the rest of the pig.

Senator McCain,

You have said for months that when you are President you will veto any bill with an earmark and make the author famous. Why not start now? Tell the American people about the earmarks in the initial bailout bill that caused you to initially side with the house republicans. Make the authors famous!

Also, the next time Obama or anyone else mocks you for focussing on $18billion in earmarks, explain that earmarks are just one cut of the pig that is devouring Washington. They are easy and obvious to explain, but there is much more. Then make like a butcher and tell us about the rest of the pig.

Subsidies and tax loopholes are other cuts of the pig. Tell us how they pervert the free market and how they are given in exchange for votes, campaign contibutions or other favors like jobs for friends or reletives. In the debate Obama stated that we don’t need to reduce the corporate tax rate because most business gets special loopholes already. Tell us to get rid of the favor currying loopholes and give all businesses lower taxes. Eliminate subsidies. If we can’t compete in the world at providing something, we shouldn’t make it anymore. We should make something else. Without goverment subsidies we will. If you add in subsidies and tax loopholes, the little earmark piglet becomes a full-fledged hog!

Next, attack regulations that are not in the benefit of the people. The Democrats have said they will readdress the off shore drilling ban if Obama wins. In the mean time, they have taken the spotlight off it by ignoring it. Keep hitting it. Lawsuits and regulations keep us from having more nuclear power, or wind generators off Nantucket. Regulations from the education department have taken schools out of the control of the communities they serve. Give schools back to the school boards and the PTA. Less federal government oversight and control means less money spent. Give government back to the people wherever possible.

Butcher the pig!
