“Sequestration or Secession?”

Is sequestration a fête accompli?

It’s looking more like it everyday.

We’re facing yet another incomprehensible battle in Congress, another unnecessary deadline which could have grave consequences for the nation and the global economy.

Despite being firmly established in a previous economic battle, sequestration — automatic cuts to the budget, half military and half discretionary — has become a political hot potato with both sides pointing fingers fearful of holding the proverbial spud when the music ends on March One!

The reason for this low approval can be traced to the very sources of the problem and in order to fix it we must first expose what and who caused it to fall below the approval of Communism and Used Car Salesmen.
