Why? Because we're not having it. That's why.
1) We strengthened our 10 Amendment
because we will not allow the Fed to overreach and try to bleed us and control us in ways they have no Constitutional right to
2) Governor Mitch Daniels told the Fed to piss off on the Cap and Trade
. He called it imperialism. It's also murder when you're talking about forcing families to buy deathmobiles. You cannot, under any circumstances, jack up prices on a commodity we all need without having a suitable replacement for it. That's how things work in this world. Washboards didn't go out of use until the washing machine was invented. My Man Mitch indeed.
3) We won't commit suicide by investing in failed businesses which should be forced to fail
simply by virtue of Darwinism, i.e., companies which received bailout funds.
Just had to say that. Every day it seems like America has gone more and more off its rocker but there's some sanity in the middle of it, thank Hashem.
