We know there is a love affair between Obama and moochers based on mutual interest. What we don’t know is how many moochers Obama can create between now and November of 2012.
Never has Obama been more fired up than he was this past weekend when he spoke to the Black Caucus. He called for blacks to "get out of their house slippers and to put on their marching boots". Obama's rhetoric was a response to black leaders (Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee) calling for Obama to give more handouts to their “community”. Instead of demanding Obama programs for growing the economy and putting people to work, they were asking, "You bailed out banks, wall street, and auto companies. Where is our bailout?"
This same weekend protesters continued to descend on Wall Street and occupy parts of it showing their rage over a financial system that they say favors the rich and powerful at the expense of ordinary citizens. Micah Chamberlain, 23, a line cook from Columbus, Ohio, who had hitchhiked to New York, said “There are millions of people in his country without jobs and 1 percent of the people have 99 percent of the money.” Looks like the strategy is to march until Obama gives everyone their fair share (1% of the people should have 1% of the money).
And Obama's people are just getting warmed up. It is clear to the most casual observer that the current President of the United States believes that our country has seen its best days. He feels strongly that we have peaked as an economic and political leader of the world. From this point forward he believes we must lower our standards for economic growth (or lack thereof), lower our standards for leadership in the world (or lack thereof), and lower our standards for employment and self sufficiency (or lack thereof), and lower our standards of liberty and freedom from government interference in our citizens lives.
How do we know this? Look at his proposals. It is evident that Obama has given up on creating jobs and growing our economy (actually he never intended to do so). The Obama jobs plan has little if anything to do with jobs. It pays people for not working. In Obama's plan the American people get permanent tax hikes that would enlarge the federal government to offset the cost of temporary jobs policies that would not create any jobs. The tax hikes in this plan are clearly more likely to destroy more jobs than the jobs policies would ever create.
So what is the Obama plan as he accepts, and in fact, accelerates the shrinking American way of life? He wants to take the shrinking pie and divide it more fairly. He defines fair as taking money from non-Obama voters and giving it to Obama voters. He would rather his people have a larger share of a smaller pie than to grow the pie that would provide more for all constituents. It is easier to REDISTRIBUTE when the ship is sinking then when times are good. All SOCIALIST leaders throughout history have known this.
How does Obama plan to accomplish this REDISTRIBUTION?
First Obama can pass REGULATIONS without having to deal with a pesky Congress. During President Obama's first 26 months in office, his Administration imposed 75 new major regulations, with reported costs to the private sector exceeding $40 billion. The annual cost of regulation--$1.75 trillion by one frequently cited estimate--represents twice the amount of individual income taxes collected last year.
Regulations are complex and boring to the American public making them a great way to punish your enemies and reward your voters.
Next comes the Obama takeover of 1/6 of the American economy. Obamacare is a perfect ploy to transfer money from doctors, nurses, insurance companies, and the American taxpayer to the Obama voter even if it does kill jobs and make those without jobs more dependent on government. Additionally Obamacare will destroy the quality of the health care system while increasing costs to the paying customer. Obama would rather give his voters free health care, even if it is inferior, then to force people to work and buy excellent health care at market prices.
Next comes BIG SPENDING, RUNAWAY DEFICITS, and TAX INCREASES.
President Obama's $787 billion stimulus was supposed to create jobs, but instead deficits mounted and economic growth is now stagnant. Who cares as long as you can transfer resources from the more productive private sector to the less productive government sector (Obama voters)? Who cares that government rarely receives good value for the dollars it spends as long as Obama can redistribute the nation’s wealth by providing tax dollars to favored constituencies. Obama’s new jobs plan? More of the same, but with huge tax increases on job creators.
Earlier this summer, businessman Steve Wynn said that the Obama Administration has been "the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime." And when Investors Business Daily asked Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, "What's the single biggest impediment to job growth today?" he replied, "The U.S. government." Business owners--those men and women who create jobs in America--know that the Obama Administration is the root cause of the stalled economy. However, Obama is way ahead of Wynn and Marcus. Obama has always known he was a job killer, and he doesn't care as long as he can take money from Marcus and Wynn and "redistribute it fairly to his moochers".
The American people are catching on to the first part of the puzzle. According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, 77 percent say the country is headed seriously off on the wrong track, and "Americans by a 2-1 margin, 34 percent to 17 percent, now say [the Obama] administration’s efforts have done more to harm rather than help the nation's economy." What the American people don't know yet is that Obama will intentionally slow the economy and create unemployment to accomplish his CLASS WARFARE GOALS OF REDISTRIBUTION.
In current polls Romney leads Obama by 2 points while Perry loses to Obama by 4 points. It looks like you can toss a coin as to whether Americans would like to return to a prosperous and growing nation or would rather stop the economic machine and take money from the achievers and give it "fairly" to the moochers.
Think about it,
