When You Find Yourself In A Hole, Stop Digging

by Michael D. Hume, M.S.

The president, perhaps in an election-motivated effort to step away from his failed stimulus programs, said yesterday that there are actually no “shovel ready projects” out there. Meanwhile the vice president, who didn’t seem to get the memo, announced that the stimulus has actually worked.


Just because Joe says it’s so, that doesn’t make it so. It’s almost like he’s asking whether we’re going to believe what we see with our own eyes, or what he tells us.

You can hardly blame the vice president. He did hear his boss say a couple times (OK, more like dozens of times) that there WERE lots of shovel-ready jobs out there that would jump-start the economy and vault the U.S. into a new era of prosperity. To President Obama, who has operated as the Campaigner In Chief since before taking office, it didn’t matter that government spending on make-work projects has never brought prosperity to the country. The whole idea is to get the public to buy into the notion that we need high taxes, high government spending, and high government control in order to turn the economy around. The private sector, you see, is just too greedy and corrupt to do the job.

So that’s what they’re shoveling these days.

If I were you, I’d dig a little deeper than the president’s (or vice president’s) comments. The facts are these: government spending is going to kill the economy (intentionally or not), government takeovers in the name of job creation only kill thousands of jobs, and government attempts to redistribute wealth through tax-and-spend programs only serve to gobble up existing wealth and inhibit creation of new wealth.

Get smart. Dig into the global conspiracy against your money, and figure out how you can preserve and build your wealth before it’s too late. Start a business on the side to create more wealth. Take personal responsibility for your own future, rather than trusting to the shovellings of these knuckleheads.

Two weeks from Tuesday, we need to take the first step toward burying this administration’s “radical transformation” of our country. We need to get back to being the “shining city on a hill” that we’ve traditionally been, and that the rest of the world really digs.
