I voted for Rand Paul in the Alaska Republic Primary in 2016. He’d already withdrawn from the race the week before, but still appeared on the ballot and I prefer his libertarian-conservative Republicanism over what any of the other GOP candidates were offering.

Image result for image of rand paulLast night, he tried to block the spending bill with a procedural rule to maintain spending caps. He considers the bill to be fiscally irresponsible. He’s not alone, but he stuck his head up out of the gopher hole and said what needed to be said. The rest of the GOP just kept marching toward the cliff.

What happened to the GOP that existed during the Obama administration? Paul Ryan used to be a deficit hawk. So what the heck are they doing?

Yeah, they claim it’s a fiscal experiment. The government doesn’t usually do this kind of spending during a time when the economy is growing. What if they did?”

Well, according to the economists I read and respect, with such a debt growing every day, it’s likely to slow the economy rather than stimulate it. That’s why Obama’s spending programs didn’t have a stimulative effect. The economy was being dragged by growing debt. So, they may just have negated the positive economic effects of tax relief and reduced regulation.

So, here’s my point here — We could have elected someone as President who understands the damage government spending can do to the economy. We could have elected someone other than Donald Trump. Why didn’t we?

Could it be that “conservatives” really don’t mind big government spending so long as it is being spent on what they like rather than on what they don’t.
