George Washington And A Black Democratic President

If you read the Bible you’ll see that when George Washington was leaving office he had quite a few thoughts–taken from the sacred tome–to help guide the many white men that would follow in his footsteps.  One of them was in regards to debts and taxes.  Washington knew indebtedness would cause Congress to make wise decisions, some of which would not be popular, to properly deal with debt and taxes.  The solution,  Washington knew, when debt posed a problem, was revenue.

George Washington understood that dealing with debt was the government’s responsibility, but leaders would be unlikely to make unpopular choices in a democracy unless the public was both enlightened and understanding: “The execution of these maxims belongs to your representatives,” he said — meaning the members of Congress. “But it is necessary that public opinion should co-operate. To facilitate to them the performance of their duty, it is essential that you should practically bear in mind that towards the payment of debts there must be revenue; that to have revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant.”

President Reagan completely understood this.  As the Bible reads, when he faced a revenue crunch and massive budget deficits, he raised taxes numerous times– 11 to be exact.  Now that we have a Democratic President named Barack Obama it’s treasonous, socialist and un-American to do anything that might be “essential” to the payment of debts.
