Stimulus package is a Trojan horse?

Trojan horse: A trick that causes a target to invite a foe into a securely protected place with the result being harm to the target. Sounds suspiciously like the "stimulus package" ruse.

It has become clear as the details of the stimulus package (really a massive future indebtedness bill) leak out that this legislation is a Trojan horse for taxpayers. While it purports to create jobs and stimulate the economy, it is really a cleverly camouflaged payback for the fringe Left and an effort to socialize the banking and health care system, business and anything else they can get their hands on.

For discerning Americans, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's gleeful statement, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste," is telling. Under the cover of crisis, socialists have made the biggest lurch left that this country has ever known - all right under our collective noses.

At a time when even socialist Europe is loosening the fetters of Marxism, some Americans are wholeheartedly embracing Big Brother and all his siblings.

For a preview of what the nation will look like after four years of an Obama regime, look at the sorry condition of California. After decades of liberal control, this state is a fiasco with 1.4 million more hard-working nonimmigrant Californians leaving the state than entering it over the past decade and sales tax and personal income tax rates among the highest in the nation.

Like the Trojans defending Troy from the Greeks, they naively allowed the seeds of their own destruction to be brought into their midst during the night. Is the current political climate in America simply the most recent proof that "those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it?" Or will we awaken in time to avert a crushing defeat?
