Ballooning Government Debts

A government debt is a government claim against personal income and private property – an unpaid tax bill. – Hans F. Sennholz "All democracies institute programs for current voters and shift the debt to future workers, even the unborn. Social Security, Medicare, prescriptions drug benefits for seniors are prime examples in America." Many U.S. States are battling public debt. Steve Forbes believes that the Obama's stimulus money to these States has only delayed their 'moment of truth'. Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey is praised by Forbes for reeling the spending back to 2006 levels and trying to negotiate with the public employee unions. "Under-funded public employee retirement and health care contracts are a major portion of the debt."

Mark Kirk is bad for Illinois

Mark Kirk (R, IL-10) is currently a member of the House of Representatives. Alexi Giannoulias (D) is currently the Illinois State Treasurer. These two men are battling it out for Barack Obama's old Senate seat. While both of these candidates leave much to desire, I plan on giving Giannoulias my vote. Here's why: Mark Kirk has shown us that he can not be trusted. He has lied about serving in Iraq. In 2003, Kirk lied on the House floor stating: "The last time I was in Iraq, I was in uniform flying at 20,000 feet and the Iraqi Air Defense Network was shooting at us." Well, no, actually that's not true. It never happened. I feel that by claiming that he was a "veteran of Operation Desert Storm" he not only lied, but tried to get respect and honor that he did not earn. Kirk has falsely claimed to have won the U.S. Navy's intelligence officer of the year award, falsely claimed to "command the war room in the Pentagon", his involvement in Kosovo and his time as a teacher.
