Nat King Cole “The Party’s Over”


“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduce, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instread of living on public assistance.”

~Marcus Tullius Cicero


“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.”

~Thomas Jefferson

The Day the Dollar Died




The tea party movement wants constitutional government of limited size and scope.

This requires cutting Federal spending and balanced or surplus budgets.

This would require the cutting of Federal spending of over $1,000 billion from the current level of Federal expenditures to balance government revenues and outlays. 

If the budget is not balanced or in deficit with outlays exceeding revenues, then the national debt ceiling must be increased.

If the budget is balanced or outlays equal revenues, then the debt ceiling need not be increased.

If the budget is in surplus or revenues exceed outlays, then the debt ceiling can be lowered.

Yet the Republican Party is already talking about spending cuts of only $100 billion and a level of government outlays of 2008 which would mean an unbalanced budget or budget deficits and more debt.

Paul Ryan Says U.S. Will Avoid Defaulting on Debt


A $100 billion cut in spending is simply a joke when a balanced budget would require cuts of over $1,000 billion.

With estimated tax revenues of about $2,600 billion the budget for Fiscal Year 2011 needs to be cut by more than $1,000 billion dollars.

The tea party is already being sold out by the Republican Party establishment in Washington D.C.

Any Republican who votes for raising the debt ceiling is voting for more government budget deficits and more debt to make up the shortfall in tax revenues.

In other words these Republicans are not in favor of Constitutional limited government but business as usual.

Either vote for balanced budgets now or face defeat in November 2012.

Dan Mitchel with Cavuto if the Republicans won’t cut spending run them out of town

The real alternative to defaulting on the national debt is  cuts in Federal government spending levels that balance the budget.

The tea party movement wants Federal government spending to be cut and the debt ceiling to remain the same and eventually lowered.

Start closing Federal Departments and terminating Federal government employees.

The American people have had enough of both political parties out of control government spending and month after month of deficits spending and a rising national debt.

The Federal Government can avoid defaulting on the debt by immediately terminating Federal Government employees.

Where do make the cuts in spending?

How limited in size and scope  should the constitutional  republic of the United States be:

Controlling Leviathan: The Battle for Limited Government


Eight Reasons Why Big Government Hurts Economic Growth


The Optimum Size of Government

Optimal Size of Government Conference, Volume 2


Start by closing permanently the following Federal Departments:

1. Department of Agriculture

2. Department of Commerce

3. Department of Education

4. Department of Energy

5. Department of Health and Human Resources

6. Department of Housing and Urban Development

7. Department of Interior

8. Department of Labor

9. Department of Transportation

10. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Have ten up and down votes in the House of Representatives for closing these Federal Departments by the end of the Fiscal Year 2011 on September 30, 2011.

The ruling class of both political parties having been fiscally irresponsible for decades.

The American people have put the political  elites on notice, cut spending, balance the budget and no more hikes in the national debt ceiling.

Shut the Federal government down or the American people will shut you down by voting you out of office.

Ron Paul and Rand Paul are right.

Government spending should be limited by the amount of tax revenues that are collected.

There must be a balanced budget rule that says that the total budget for a fiscal year cannot exceed the revenue collected in the previous fiscal year or the estimated tax revenues for the current year, which ever is lower.

No balanced budget rule, then no debt ceiling raise.

Congress does not need to raise the debt ceiling.

Congress needs to start cutting spending starting now.

If the means closing entire Federal Department so be.

The Republican establishment point of view is represented by former Senator Santorum.

Santorum on Debt Ceiling, Spending Cuts

The tea party movement point of view is represented by Michele Bachmann with a proposed $450 billion in Federal spending for the current budget year compared to Paul Ryan and the Republican Party leadership proposal of $50 to $100 billion.

Confronting Reckless Federal Spending

Actually over $1,000 billion needs to be cut to have a balanced budget, which means everything including Defense and entitlement needs to be cut.

The American people are way head of both political parties and big media as to what needs to be done. 

What is irresponsible is both political parties have been increasing the debt ceiling for decades.

Enough is enough.

If the current members of Congress cannot do the job, the tea party movement will find others who will cut spending by closing Federal Departments, agencies and reform entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

Start sending out the pink slip or termination of employment notices–downsize the Federal Government now.

If President Obama refuses to have the Federal Government operate on tax revenues only, then President Obama will be the person blamed for forcing the Federal Government into default on its Treasury obligations.

Refuse to Raise The Debt Ceiling!

The party is over! The piper must be paid.


Doris Day sings The Party’s Over

The party’s over
It’s time to call it day
They’ve burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away

It’s time to wind up
The masquerade
Just make your mind up
The piper must be paid

The party’s over
The candles flicker and dim
You danced and dream
Through the night
It seemed to be right
Just being with him

Now you must wake up
All my dreams must end
Take off your makeup
The party’s over
It’s all over, my friend

Now you must wake up
All my dreams must end
Take off your makeup
The party’s over
It’s all over, my friend

Debt Ceiling

“…The Second Liberty Bond Act of 1917 established a statutory limit on federal debt.[96] Congress had previously approved each debt issuance separately. The debt limit provided the U.S. Treasury with more leeway in the administration of debt, allowing for modern management techniques in government finance.

The U.S. Treasury Department now conducts more than 200 sales of debt by auction every year. The Treasury has been granted authority by Congress to issue such debt as was needed to fund government operations as long as the total debt (excepting some small special classes) does not exceed a stated ceiling.

The most recent increase in the U.S. debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion by H.J.Res. 45 was signed into law on February 12, 2010.[97]
