Conservatives, tea partyers, Republicans claim they are against big government and big government programs. Is that really true?
Then these citizens should make the majority of Americans who doubt them believers. How, you say? There are many ways. Here are a few.
Stop accepting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Stop and give back that money you collect from your government pension. Give back those government grants. Stop your low-interest government-backed loans.
End your bloated government contracts feasting on taxpayer money. Stop supporting and accepting taxpayer subsidies for Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Agri, Big Banks gorging themselves on the taxpayers.
End loopholes in the tax code for your company and private jets, yachts, company cars and more at taxpayer expense.
Stop incentives for corporations to send factories and jobs to China at real Americans’ expense. Stay off our highways; stop using our airports and seaports. Quit asking our brave military to protect your foreign adventures.
You get the picture. Walk the walk. Don’t just talk the talk. Put up or shut up.
