Something has surfaced in theses debt ceiling negotiations, it's an underlying tone that I think most people have missed. It hides just under the surface of the words our President and the representatives of Congress use when discussing making this deal. It's very subtle in a way, but if you really dissect their conversations, it stands out. When they speak, the verbiage they use indicates that this is not the last time they will have to go through this process. That my friends is unacceptable! We cannot treat a spending ceiling as a temporary measure, it's a control put into place that limits the government. This limit demands we live within our means, and to not do so will certainly be more devastating than any terrorist attack on our freedom.
The shackles of deficit spending constrain our freedom like no other tyrant could. There is an old saying, "you can discipline yourself, or have someone else do it for you." It's time we applied fiscal discipline and cut our spending so we can live freely within our means.
If you notice there is talk on both sides of the isle of appointing a "super Congress," a board of bi-partisan Congressmen to push through financial legislation. This not only violates the principles this country was founded upon, it shouts they are hardly done spending beyond their means. This is completely unacceptable, and just one of the indicators they have no intention of standing on a balanced budget. Watch the language the use, they are not done pillaging the treasury.
