CNN uses 6 year old to push debt ceiling agenda

Video: Remember “Little Darth Vader” from the Volkswagen commercial? His name is Max Page, he’s 6 years old and he’s in Washington voicing his opinion on the debt limit.

Lets understand one thing before I start getting all emotional and irrational; this 6 year old child does not have the capacity to understand the complexity of the crisis posed by the American debt limit situation, let alone medicare or medicaid. He can barely form sentences. I’ll go out on a limb and say that he’s just repeating something his parents told him. This is just an assumption (and it’s the truth). That being said, the following opinions will be made bluntly, quickly and clearly.

This is one of the most disgusting displays of political posturing I’ve ever seen. Using a sick 6 year old to push your agenda. That’s just absolutely twisted. Who in their right mind would do this? Well, CNN and NBC. This video actually broke yesterday live on CNN newsroom.

Take a look at the congressman’s face as Max is speaking. He’s trying to look concerned, as if to say “Don’t worry little boy, we’ll make sure to raise the debt limit. (heh heh heh.)” I guess evil laughter doesn’t work so well in text form.

And of course, the parents are sitting next to Max, laughing and smiling, as if to say “oh how cute, look at our cute little kid”. It’s not cute, you silly little brainwashed, ignorant yuppie soccer mom. And neither is your 2012 Honda Odyssey (and… there’s the emotional and irrational part). The debt limit crisis is a serious, complex, explosive issue. If the American people allow their government to consistently over-spend, over-regulate and over-fund businesses and hospitals to the point of dependency, we will literally wake up in absolute tyranny, unable to create any type of reform. It’s not cute or funny.

Whether you choose to believe it or not, the federal debt is a rapidly growing threat to the American people and the economy. We are over 14 trillion dollars in debt, and your proposed solution is MORE DEBT? Let’s face it; the military budget, coupled with all the other funny money being funneled to the executives has no end in sight. I mean, we have to fund all those expensive, secret organizations right? Not to mention the ones we know about; the FDA, USDA, TSA, NSA, Homeland Security. We have to fund the endless civil wars we’ve created in multiple middle eastern countries. Oh, and the other 4 countries we’re at war with. As well as the state, federal and international drug wars, the international aid. You get the idea.

I really have nothing more to say other than this; These sick and twisted politicians are really pulling out all the tricks to get the debt ceiling raised. Yes, lets give more money to the corrupt politicians because if we don’t, little kids and babies will die.

We’re supposed to trust these people to do the right thing with our money, immediately after they show how eager they are to emotionally terrorize us using our own children as leverage? No thanks, Washington. The people of America need to grow up. Maybe a lowered credit rating will humble us a little bit. I’d rather deal with the consequences of missing the debt agreement deadline, than carry this beast further into the abyss of oppressive debt slavery.
