What have the Poor done to deserve a sainted status in this society, while the Wealthy are being demonized by this President and by the Democrat Party at every turn?
The Poor do not start businesses and hire people. The Wealthy do. The Wealthy constitute 1% of our population yet pay 40% of our taxes. The Poor pay nothing.
Being born poor and living that way sucks. I know from personal experience. I also know that working hard, educating oneself, and never giving up can elevate one’s economic status in America. Capitalism enables one to do that. Socialism does not. It just makes everyone equally poorer.
I am sick of hearing Obama trash rich Americans as being heartless and greedy. They are not, as a whole, evil. Just as the poor are not, as a whole, innocent children in need of care-taking by their political masters.
In his ten thousandth speech of the year, responding to the Republicans’ Pledge to America, Obama spouted this little canard:
”It is grounded in same worn-out philosophy: cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires; cut the rules for Wall Street and the special interests; and cut the middle class loose to fend for itself. That’s not a prescription for a better future.”
We have to end the race-baiting, the class envy promoted by the Democrat Party. It is destructive and divisive. Tossing the poor scraps in return for their life-long votes is a shameful practice, and is not, contrary to the liberal mantra, “compassion.”
Over seventy years and two thousand plus social programs, and poverty is still here in America. And, under the Democrats complete control of Congress for three years, poverty has risen.
Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lie incessantly and claim the Democrats have absolutely no responsibility for where we are economically. Bull shit. Are you buying that? Are you fooled by their nonsense?
We must expect and demand a better class of representatives. Because the ones in office are corrupt and are selling us out in return for personal power.
Not only must we vote them out, but we must all engage in self-governance. We the People are the power in this nation. That is why the Tea Party Movement scares the hell out of the liberal media and the Democrat Party. Even the Republican Party has started getting scared. As well they all should be. Their days of taking our money as if it is theirs to spend on buying votes are over.
No more taxation without representation. No more legislation that benefits unions, illegal immigrants, and other special interest groups.
We are on the brink, as a nation, and our posterity is looking to us and asking, “Why? Why didn’t you fight harder? Why have you allowed the thieves and traitors to steal our futures?”
What are you going to tell your great-grandchildren one day?
