You watch....

This is an OLD strategy.... it always works.
PREMISE: Cut Government..... and it's going to HURT.
So.... if you're AGAINST decreasing the size of Government...
What do you do?
Simple.
Cut where it hurts the most FIRST!!!!!
Make 'em squeal.... then herd 'em like cattle.
Sick ain't it?
it, btw....
will be EXACTLY the same strategy the FED will use...
to garner "hands off" support...
the closer we get
to dismantling it.
It's dirty politics....
as old as the art
of staying in Power.
