Well at least she’s being honest…

So it begins…the long road to socialism is beginning once again this time with Nancy Pelosi at the helm.

The Christian Science Monitor has the following Op-Ed by Nancy herself:

In her article she states the Democrats “agenda for change” which includes the following:

  • Make America safer by implementing the recommendations of the 9/11 commission. (A worthy cause…are democrats willing to make the sacrifices necessary to implement these recommendations? They fought the Patriot Act tooth and nail and that was a corner stone of much of the 9/11 commission.)

  • Make our economy fairer by raising the minimum wage and ending taxpayer subsidies for sending jobs overseas. (Artificially inflating minimum wage has a ripple effect though the economy that directly affects the price of goods and services and thereby prices only puts people in the same situation not a better one. It harms small businesses that do not have the ability to raise wages and therefore causes a net loss of jobs.)

  • Make college more affordable by cutting the interest rates on student loans. (When was the last time you heard a parent or student talking about the interest rate of student loans as a consideration of attending college? College should be available to everyone but everyone should not attend college.)

  • Improve healthcare by allowing Medicare to negotiate for lower prescription drug prices and promoting stem-cell research. (hmm…expanding Medicare into drugs and what of the Prescription Drug Program? Sounds to me like more overlap and more government waste. Stem-cell research I think is a worth while endeavor…but not for the federal government. Lets allow the drug companies to do this research.)

  • Achieve energy independence within 10 years by investing America's energy dollars in the Midwest instead of the Middle East. (Interesting…considering Nancy does not want us to further drill for oil of the coast of California, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Florida!!! Nor does she want us to drill for natural gas, in what has been called one of the largest natural gas deposits in the world, in ANWR (Alaskan Natural Wildlife Reserve). So is she suggesting we move to a Ethanol based society? Is she willing to give up here SUV and her jet…I doubt it!)

  • Guarantee a dignified retirement by improving Medicare, protecting Social Security, and making it easier to save for retirement. (Since when is retirement something that is GUARANTEED by the Federal Government!!!! This one pisses me off!! Social Security and Medicare was meant to be a safety net ONLY and the Democratic Party has warped it into some demented entitlement program that has put the US Budget into a tailspin…there is only one way to correct it and that is to privatize the whole thing…not just part of it like GW Bush wanted but the WHOLE thing. Make the system as we now know it disappear within the next 40 years!)

What do you know…She’s right!! The Democrats did not disappoint!

What she laid out, with exception of point one, is exactly what we expect from the Left…more government and less control by the people!

My election day hang over will be with me for the next 2 years…hopefully by then we will find a few Conservative Republicans, unlike what we’ve had for the past 6 years!
