I have little confidence that the defict reduction commission will agree on a plan which will effectively reduce the power of government, which is the main problem. If they can reduce spending, that will be good, but far more work needs to be done to change the system. Thomas Jefferson said we ought to temporarily, each generation, look at the Constitution to see if changes need to be made, and he said if our government is no longer meeting our needs, then we need to create another one. It's time to create another form of government, but the ruling class will not allow this. Instead we'll tinker with spending and tax the rich.
One thing the commission agrees on is that our situation is critical. I'm not sure this is sinking in properly to the public. We hear so much from government and different commissions, that people don't know what to believe, but this time they're telling the truth. The members of the commission have looked at our financial situation and they are syaing we can't survive if we continue in this direction. As I've said over and over, statism is the culprit -- State control of the economy -- yet that is exactly what the commission will not clearly say.
