Obananomics: Don’t look it up, it’s not in the dictionary—yet. My guess is that one day, it will be as familiar to us as Reagnomics. But if you think about it, we’re already familiar with Obamanomics. The policy follows in the footsteps of Robin of Loxley who also stole from the rich and gave to the poor. However, Loxley was simply reclaiming money extorted from the poor through nefarious means exercised by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Obama is nowhere near as noble or lofty in his ideals, but steal he shall.
My version of the American Dream means that one goes to school, does well, goes to college, gets a degree, and makes a good career that can support a home and family. Nowhere did that picture ever include a fat and lazy populace that looks to the government for housing, jobs, food, and medical care. You see, I, like John McCain, am a Capitalist, a Federalist, and an American. It is not the role nor the function of the Federal government to provide for these needs. And despite the protests of many suffering Americans today (not me, although I am one of those who suffer), these are not rights! Nor are they a privilege… nor are they a responsibility.
You see, the American Dream says “Give me an opportunity” and the Obama Dream says “Give me loyal subjects who are beholding to me for what I’ve given them”.
Bull, Mr Obama! Bull!
And Joe the Plumber helped bring this to light: (source: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/16/joe.plumber/index.html)
Wurzelbacher, 34, unintentionally stepped onto the political scene over the weekend when Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, was campaigning in Holland, Ohio, just west of Toledo.
In that exchange Wurzelbacher asked Obama if he believed in the American Dream. Wurzelbacher said he was about to buy a company that makes more than $250,000 a year and was concerned that Obama would tax him more because of it.
Families making more than $250,000 could see taxes go up under Obama’s middle-class tax cut plan, while those making less than $250,000 would not see any increase.
Obama explained his tax plan in depth to Wurzelbacher, saying it’s better to lower taxes for Americans who make less money so they can afford to patronize his business.
“I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” Obama told Wurzelbacher.
At the debate, McCain said Obama’s plan would give the government the power to redistribute wealth by raising taxes.
“We’re going to take Joe’s money, give it to Sen. Obama, and let him spread the wealth around. I want Joe the plumber to spread the wealth around,” McCain said.
Bravo, Mr McCain! Bravo!
Just who does Barack think HE is to say that someone who OVER-ACHIEVES the American Dream should be brought down a peg or two? That his prosperity belongs to everyone else? That those who don’t work should live off of the fat of those who do?
And you want to vote for this man to be President?
No, Mr/Ms Voter! No!
Well, I cannot tell you how to vote, but if you cherish all that this country is—and is not—your vote should go to someone who will “Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States, Against All Enemies, Foreign and Domestic” once he is sworn in as President. Your vote should not go to “The One” who is already sworn to subvert that Constitution for his own gain.
If you want to live in a Social Democracy, there are those countries around the world who would love to have you as a subject—I mean, citizen!
