It starts with a "G." This is Janine Turner's inaugural column for PJ Media.

L: Legislative Liberty Is Lost. Want your child to live under tyranny? Be a Democrat.
- The Democrats are bureaucrats. They are really the Bureaucratic Party.
- Democrats do not think the people can govern, provide, or think on their own.
- Democrats override the legislative process with unelected bureaucrats and “czars.”
- Obama has appointed the most czars in U.S. history.
- Democrats write 2,700-page bills that no one, not even the Supreme Court justices, can understand. That should stop.
F: Fuel and Energy Policies Are a Farce. Want your child’s transportation to be a horse? Be a Democrat.
- The basic ability to fuel our cars and to receive consistent electricity is in jeopardy under Obama and the Democrats.
- Obama refuses to harvest America’s great wealth of fossil fuel resources.
- Drilling on federal lands is at an eight-year low.
- We have enough oil, gas, and coal in our country to be self-sufficient.
- The taxes paid to the government from these resources could pay off our debt within a generation.
- Secretary of Energy Steven Chu stated that his goal is $8.00 per gallon gasoline that would pressure Americans to “go green.”
- Would you let your kid drive the combustible Chevy Volt?
- We should not put the cart before the horse, but with the Obama administration, you should get a horse.
R: Return Women to the Workforce. Want your daughter to live off the government? Be a Democrat.
- Of all the jobs that have been lost during the Obama administration, 92% have been women’s jobs.
- Women are suffering under the Obama administration.
- The majority of single mothers are trapped in the mire of dependence on the government because the Obama economy has had the hardest impact on women.
- Democrats depend on dependents.
I: Insolvency — Sinking in a Sea of Debt. Want your child to live in debt, hounded by creditors? Be a Democrat.
- The Republicans are offering life vests.
- The Democrats are drowning Americans in ideology.
- America is broke. We are approaching 16 trillion dollars in debt.
- We are beholden to foreign countries.
- Our country could be taken over without a shot being fired.
- Our credit rating has been downgraded twice under the Obama administration; this has never before happened even once: Standard and Poor’s did this in August 2011; Egan-Jones downgraded us in April 2012.
- Democrats have not put forth a budget in 1,100 days. Republicans have.
E: Entitlement Society — “Give me Liberty and Gimme, Gimme!” Want your child to be dependent on other people’s money? Be a Democrat.
- Patrick Henry, one of our great Founding Fathers, said: “Give me liberty or give me death!”
- Now, Americans say: “Give me liberty and gimme, gimme.”
- Our children are being taught that the government owes them everything.
- The Democrats want Americans to believe that everything is free.
- Nothing is for free. The sacrifice is our personal freedom, skyrocketing debt, and our Republican form of government. Our voice.
- Taxation will not and cannot curb the debt and deficit, which continually regenerates and escalates. Cutting the budget is a necessity.
