Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

What We Learned From Last Night’s State of the Union

Last night, President Obama gave his fifth State of the Union Address to a joint session of Congress and took the opportunity to do little more than recycle the tired talking points and empty promises he’s been shilling for years now.  He did his usual stunt of repeating the words “jobs” and “growth” so that those who are tuning into the news for the first time since the election get the impression that he is taking our jobs crisis seriously.  When in reality, he is solely focused on growing government and the role it has in everyday Americans’ lives.

What did we learn last night, if anything? We got a chance to see what the President will make his top priorities in his second term: everything except strengthening our economy. More funding for preschool, pushing Climate Change and raising taxes on small business owners all made the list. What didn’t? Serious entitlement reform, cutting wasteful spending, going line-by-line through the budget, and allowing job creators to do what they do best so we can end the era of high unemployment.

After another predictable speech from the President, our situation sadly remains the same. Just as Americans were left without “hope” and “change” after the 2008 election, it is clear that “forward” was nothing more than another empty slogan. High unemployment will continue, as will out-of-control government spending, leaving our children and grandchildren to pick up the tab of the era of Big Government. The battle lines have been drawn and it’s time to fight. We must push back against Democrats and Big Government Republicans alike, to win the battles and pave the way for a conservative to win in 2016. The fight for America’s future continues now; join us on the front lines.
