The National Debt Debate is Mind Over Matter

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – We continue to argue that it is a mistake to raise the national debt limit, and instead posit that the debate is simply mind over matter.  If you put your mind to it, then whomever Obama blames, don’t matter.
For instance, California's Triple threat is 1) Unions, 2) Lobbyists and 3) Parasitic Bureaucracies - we continue to propose a Bureaucracy Realignment and Closure Initiative (BRCI) similar to the one used to close military installations. Using this plan, over 80% of the bureaucracies at the state and national level close or merge.

For example, at the state level, these parasitic bureaucracies can be closed immediately   LAFCO, CLRC, CARB  and others, while at the national level, the Department of Education and the EPA can close immediately.  Some may argue that the savings from shutting down the Palmetto Bugs does not amount to much.  Something similar was said from so-called GOP fiscal conservatives when we argued that earmarks should be banned – RINOS are now singing a different tune. 

However, it is not the savings from closing down the parasitic bureaucracies that matters.  It is the shutting down of the shadow economy the symbiotic relationship between the unions, the bureaucracies, lobbyists and politicians that have created the economic fiasco in the first place.  Guess how ObamaCare came to being?  

Let's be clear, there will not be another historic opportunity to even discuss the BRCI again.

Now, at the national level, the Economic Triple Constraint is 1) ObamaCare 2) Card Check and 3) Cap and Trade.

This is how the National Debt becomes a Mind over Matter - you put your mind to it, do not raise the debt limits, and whomever Obama blames, don’t much matter.

The CotoBuzz Journal rationale was to use the Pareto Analysis (80-20 rule)  to streamline government. The more we looked at it, the more parasites we found. We then found that Sen. MacClintock had a similar view circa 2003
