Obama, (I refuse to call him President Obama) is preaching an America of “shared prosperity”. What he really means is an America of mutual dependency. Obama is not interested in a nation of opportunity and shared success. He wants an America where everyone is equally depressed. He can only achieve his vision by taxing and bleeding the successful and productive and redistributing their blood, sweat and tears to those who will not take care of themselves even when the opportunity to do so is available. He sees the welfare recipients as mistreated and maligned and in need of a government nanny. In truth, most, not all, but many, are perfectly happy with living off of another’s hard work. They feel a sense of entitlement unheard of in early America. There have always been underprivileged people.
They are the victims of misfortune or they may be poor by choice. Poor by choice? Yes. There are those who would rather survive by accepting meager handouts than actually work to improve their lot in life. These same people have supported the likes of Obama simply because he promises more goodies with no means testing as to real need. Obama wants to expand the rolls of dependency and entitlements. He wants everyone, except the elite, to be equally poor and disenfranchised. Unfortunately, Mr. Romney is not really “much” better. The Republicans are as out of touch with mainstream America as the Democrats. Neither party gives a rat’s behind about the taxpayers except at election time. Romney the RINO, is no exception. I have often said that the only real difference between the two political parties is who they wish me to give my money to. The Democrats want to give it to the lazy, unproductive drones of society, and the Republicans want it to go to their rich supporters and friends. The common theme here is take my money and give it to someone of THEIR choice. I am to have little or no say in where it goes or how much is “enough”. I have had it with politicians and their sycophants. They are Hell bound and determined to turn the whole world into their own personal fiefdom with all the rest of us slaving away to support their lifestyle of luxury and sloth. Oh they will fill the worlds board rooms and discuss weighty sociopolitical problems, but down at the bottom, the only real issue is how to maintain the status quo. I for one do not like the idea of being a “step and fetch it” for the worlds wealthy and elitists. They are no better than anyone else. Many have had their fortunes handed to them by way of inheritance. Many have never had to work for their life of ease and plenty. Those who have actually worked their way to the top tend to be less supportive of class distinctions than the heirs, but they will still rabidly throw the rest of us under the bus to keep what they have and if possible acquire even more … at our expense of course. There would seem to be no way out of our predicament short of a revolution like France had. Do away with everyone that even looks or talks like a politician and start over. Unfortunately, stupidity seems to repeat itself. Human nature being what it is, we would probably just elect another batch of equally distasteful overlords. They probably would even be worse, if that is possible. I don’t see much hope for a people who won’t stand up for their God-given rights. We really do ask for what we get. There is always some despot ready and willing to promise us anything in return for our abject slavery to the powers that be. Unless typical Americans grow a backbone, I don’t see much hope.
