Is Barack Obama destroying America in an attempt to create fairness?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Can you believe that Mitt Romney had a secret tape where he said 47% of Americans weren’t paying taxes? It’s pretty shocking. Unbelievable. How could he just lay out truth like that to an audience of people who want to have smaller government and more personal responsibility. Thankfully the media has been there to expose him. Although it’s a little weird that they aren’t trumpeting Barack Obama talking about how much he believes in redistribution, especially considering that President Obama seems willing to destroy the country to create “fairness”.

Back in 1998, Barack Obama was recorded saying, “I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”

“He actually believes in redistribution. Okay. This is really the one thing about Barack Obama that he has told the truth about over and over and over again, but nobody will believe him! Nobody! He said it before the last campaign,” Glenn said.

“How many times does he have to say it before anybody believes him? Let me borrow a phrase from the president of the United States: Let me be clear here to the media, to the registered, to the voting independents. This is not an attack on Barack Obama. It is just a fact about Barack Obama. I understand that most Americans, Americans who believe in the Constitution and our founding principles, they don’t want to believe that this man who now holds the highest office in the land, you know, might believe in, oh, I don’t know, Karl Marx, but it’s time to grow up now. It’s time to look at facts. How many times does he have to say? He is a Marxist. Accept the reality and then do something about it. Either embrace Marxism, which is your choice. You can say, ‘You know what? I believe in redistributive wealth, too, just like Karl Marx.’ That is the main thing. That is the main tenet of Marxism: Redistributive wealth. Barack Obama has made it abundantly clear that that’s what he believes in.”

Glenn played a montage of clips of Obama deriding the wealthy and talking about redistribution of wealth – all in the name of fairness.

“Again, as I said before, this is all completely understandable. You would have to be ‑‑ you’d have to be some sort of deity, which we know, we know the press doesn’t think he’s a deity. You’d have to be some sort of amazing deity to grow up surrounded by Marxists, communists, socialists, people who are on the FBI watch list because they’re so dangerous. His parents, his grandparents, his mentor, his college professors. He talked about hanging around with them all this college, the Marxists, the radical feminists, the anticolonial isolated. Even his spiritual 20‑year mentor, Jeremiah Wright, all the most important people in his life were strong believers in Marxism and Marxist principles. What chance did this guy ever have to understand capitalism? He’s never been around it. Never. That’s not a slam. I actually feel bad for the guy. He believes the lie that capitalism is evil and Marxism solves problems. I feel bad for him. He doesn’t feel bad for me. And I don’t want his opinion. I feel bad that he’s going to actually find himself out in the parking lot of the White House in January kicking rocks going, what the hell happened? Oh, I don’t know. Marxism doesn’t work. But please, for those in the media and on the left, stop with saying, ‘You’re a racist. Oh, golly gee, the racists just say anything about Marxism.’”

“So the only decision the rest of us have to make is, is this still America? Is this an America that we understand, or have we changed? Is ‑‑ was Newsweek magazine right: We’re all socialist now? That’s really the only decision left. Are we still the America where a politician can’t win a national election where everyone knows he’s a Marxist? We fundamentally change, we fundamentally transform in 47 days. If we now know what we know and we open‑eye go right into it, he does fundamentally transform the United States of America in 47 days and that message has already been transmitted to Vladimir.”

“If we are not, with the way we are awake now, the way we’re awake on the Fed, the way we’re awake on the GOP, the way we’re awake now, everything changes. We fundamentally transform it again in 47 days, but more to a country that we understand, one that would earn the respect of the people around the world, one that would be truly lifting people up by helping them up, not enslaving them to a system of redistribution. Because see, the last part really about this redistribution is that it can’t help anyone up because redistribution trains you to expect to take it from someone else. That’s a life of slavery because you can’t take it. You have to have somebody else take it for you. And that is a fundamental difference in our country as well.”

“See, we’ve always been ‑‑ we’re a representative government, and you can’t elect someone, you can’t hire someone to do something you yourself can’t do. That’s not the way it works. You have to have the right and then you hire somebody to represent you in that right. I can’t go over to my neighbor and say, “You have too much money; I’m taking it.’”

“So how is it we’re hiring somebody to go over to our neighbors and say, ‘You have too much money; we’re taking it and we’re going to give it to these guys over here’? Fundamental transformation. That’s the choice. A guy who says, ‘I don’t believe in redistribution of wealth. I believe in helping people, I believe in working hard, I believe we should protect people for what they’ve created.’ Or, I’ll do the wrong thing for the budget out of fairness because I believe in redistribution of wealth.’ That’s it.”

    Is Obama destroying America out of his ideal concept of ‘fairness’ and in the name of Social and Economic Justice (i.e. Marxism/Socialism/Communism)? Yes.

    Remember he views American success since the founding of our nation as due to nothing more than outright colonialism and thievery from the rest of the world; not due to the truth of hard work, ingenuity, and the freedoms endowed to us by God.

    Based on the growing fanatical drive and bent he has, his narcissism has become full blown madness – Obama is insane and unfit for office.

    Well if the end justifies the means, it all depends on what side of the political isle one is on.

    If you are a hard working individual who has earned an honest living and accumulated that which he can afford – the answer would be a resounding – NO

    on the other hand….

    If you are a lazy individual, who has always relied on others – for the basic essentials in life…not willing to further educate yourself, or to simply work hard for you income – the answer is a staggering – YES

    The problem of course – when those who work hard for their money, decide to join the others who don’t – then what?

    I see nothing wrong with what obama is saying. Because trickle down economics dosen’t work. Why is it every 40 or 50 year we have to go through a finaicial crisis which i cause by the same thing each time. lowering taxes on the rich and deregulating business. That stuff does not work all it does is make the rich richer. it is ridiculous that 1% of the country has more money then therest of us combined.

    Have you look at the unemployment numbers under reagan, during Reagans second term the economy went into declined the forced Bush Sr. to raise taxes. Buisiness did great, but the worker and middles class got nothing. The problem with Trickle down is nothing get trickled down it all stays at the top.

  • Anonymous

    Trickle down economics does work, and it has been proven to work. Under Reagan people in all economic levels saw an increase of wealth. The upper class saw a larger increase, but then again if you are an entrepreneur don’t you deserve more for the risk that you are taking? The only reason that people are upset because their expectations of trickle down effect was stupid. People were like “HEy how come I’m not getting a 20% raise!!!”

    Redistribution of wealth is just plain stupid idea, and has even worse consequences than the “trickle down” effect. It has never worked and caused thousands of deaths for the sake of redistribution of wealth.

    Well, well, what a isnt it a surprise. Several years ago, his “Joe the Plumber” comments said it all, but people didnt seem to “get it”.
    Then there is the “you didnt build this” comments. You also have his pushing for dependancy on govt that would make a drug pusher blush.
    What else is there to know. It is so in your face and if you still dont get it, my only conclusion would be, you are either ignorant or you are yourself a socialist. You cant be blind cos blind people have very good hearing, so I wont insult the blind!!

    While I agree that “Trickle Down Economics” may have worked under Ronald Reagan, that does not mean that it will work in today’s economic climate. A lot of things have changed since then…GLOBALIZATION being the biggest of them. BTW. Reagan was my favorite modern president.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    Of course he believes in redistribution; that’s a pillar of Marxism. It’s what Obama believed then; it’s what he believes now. It has been ingrained from birth

  • corey williams

    No under reagan Trickle down only help the top look at the numbers under reagan. Unployment was high, the decline of the Middle class. Because Reaganomics was such a failure that Bush Sr. had to raise taxes to fix the economy when he was president.

  • Ralphie85

    Corey…obviously “capitalism” doesn’t work for you. You might try to get off your lazy butt and do something about that.

    I can tell you that it works if you have the drive to make it work. How does a man with not a “pot to piss in” have a successful business for 30 years! He BUILT IT!!! 4am mornings leaving for work..coming home at 8pm at night..eating dinner, shower, go to bed to start all over again. Until it got profitable that he didn’t have to work quite so many hours…. but he still did everyday. Being sick or injured…nothing stopped him from going to work each and every morning to feed his family. WHY did he work so hard? Because he wanted to support his family in a manner which he did not have himself growing up.I reject your theory that “trickle down NEVER works”! What kind of a job to do have right now? Who pays your wages? Does the poor guy on the street pay your wages? No…I didn’t think so!
    Or do you even have a job? If you don’t have a job…why not? If the answer is… there are none….I say…welcome to obamaland!

    Redistribution of welth has been going on since reagan, it’s just been taking money from the middle class and give it to the rich. But when obama says let try it the other way around all republican get mad. And why do the get mad becuase the rich has there hands in the pockets and the republican don’t want it to stop getting tose hand outs from the rich

  • corey williams

    i have a very good job. To blame Obama for unemployment like the Bush years never happened is wrong. Look at what big buinesss do to works there under paid alot have no insurance and rights are being violeted. and because reagan destroyed most of the Union many works can’t complain about wages and working conditions. How is it trickel down when 1% of the country ha smore money the the rest of us combine. And that was not the case when Reagan took office so how do you explain from Reagan to now the growing divide between the Rich and all the rest of americans. Where is the trickle down.

    This is nothing new he told Joe the Plumber he needed to share with all the people standing behind him, he said he was going to fundamentally change America..and if he can he is bribing anyone to vote for him with our money , that was suppose to be there for our retirement and medicare..his largest base is illegals who are coming here for all the free stuff and being rewarded for breaking our laws and trampling our Constitution..Let’s face it , it was all there to see, a certain percentage of our electorate , thinks they want Socialism..I would start with the college kids and ask them , Do you want jobs when you graduate , do you want the money taken out of your check every week , there when you retire, then don’t vote for four more years of this b.s…because it’s you and your kids who are going to be indebted to this servitude..

    It wasnt President Bush who added trillions to our debt. It wasnt President Bush who rewards his friends (Solyndra) with tax payers $$$. If you want to reason using history, just take a look at across the pond – Greece is doing brilliantly from being dependant on Govt arent they? Or take a look much closer at Cuba or Venezuela. It is just peachy there isnt, just peachy.
    Obama is using other tax payers $$$ to “reward his friends and punish his enemies”
    If I work hard, why should I not get to keep most of my money??? Do you think it is fair to take from me and give to some who are merely abusing the system ( I am not saying that some people do not genuinely need help)
    If anyone wants to be responsible for their ovaries, that is fine with me their rights and I have mine too) and FYI that includes paying for your own contraception!!!! What about my rights???
    If the change from President Bush ideas have work, why am I paying more at the pump, why is my groceries bill costing me more??? Why is the next generation being forced into debt through no fault of their own??If BO foreign policies of appeasement and apologies have worked why are the radicals in the ME still hate us and wreaking havoc at our embassy there? Why did 4 American have to loose their lives when they should have been protected. If BO can use taxpayer $$$ to protect his precious pal V Jarrett, then there is no excuse for not protecting americans who serve our country!!! Hugs to you

    Let’s stop using euphemisms and just call it like it is. “Redistribution” is really a code word for ROBBERY…to steal another person’s wealth by force. It does not matter what you do with it afterwards, it is still THEFT.

    The only reason people think this is acceptable is because they see mass corruption on Wall Street…Crony Capitalism, Tax Evasion, Fraud…and say, “They stole it from us, why can’t we take it back?!”

    But two wrongs do not make things right…and taking money from the rich will NOT improve the lives of the poor. We need to CREATE wealth, and we can’t do that in an environment where someone can just walk in and take it. What we need is to take a hard look at the situation, fix our mistakes, and MOVE FORWARD.

    Well, what can you expect from the left? They strategically do the things that they do to create job loss, a weaker economy, and a sense of hopelessness when it comes to doing it your self. Why? Because they want loyalty. Dogs used to be wild creatures who hunted for their food. Now, some have been domesticated and have an owner who the dog depends on to feed. They will vote for big government, more regulation, less freedom because they will not bite the hand that feeds them. The Democrats will keep America poor because it commands political loyalty. This is a game, and the goal is power and control. They know that this path is not sustainable, but they will ride this sinking ship as long as they can to get as much out of it as they can. The left, the poor schmucks don’t even realize that the boat is sinking. All they hear is “We’re better off than we were 4 years ago”. Really? How? How is the increasing national debt that is higher than 4 years ago leaving us better off? How is the increase in job loss leaving us better off? How is this sinking ship going to reach it’s destination? It was never intended to by the Democrats.

    In my humble opinion it no longer matters how Obama is wired. Those who really want truth, will seek the truth out. The truth is, we can not allow Obama another 4 years to completely destroy America. Obama must be voted out. If Obama is allowed another term, we will never vote again. Much less have a country, at the very least have a country we recognize. I no longer live in the greatest neighborhood, had to move where I could be able to pay all of my bills and still eat. Living in a neighborhood where so many are on welfare, Social security, not the social security one pays into while working. I have learned that not a one of these people, even care to vote. All they seem to care about is the check, that they get. They stand by their mail box, around the first of the month waiting for the mail. A few hours later, these same people are so high, it makes me sick. Most of them have a much nicer car, and almost all of them sell drugs to supplement their check. Our government is corrupt, at least most of them are. We know that our president is as dirty as they get, and will stop at nothing to complete the destruction of America. We must stop him from being re-elected come this November. I know I am doing all that I can to get more people to vote. Thank you Glenn, for all that you do to keep us informed. As well, to help us remember to fight with the truth and honor. many Blessing to everyone. Theresa

    Redistribution is paying for the health care of the veteran that lost his leg while fighting one of Bush’s wars, redistribution is paying for social security for people that retired after paying into the system their whole lives many only collecting a few months before dying, redistribution is paying for the cop in the beat, the first responders that save our lives at risk to their lives, redistribution is paying for schools and teachers teaching our children, I am glad our -president supports this along with every other president in history

    Every president in history has supported redistribution, but some support it to pay for retiries who have paid into their entire lives and to pay for cops and first responders, But when you get one like Romney that only supports redistribution of money going from the poor and middle class straight to the 1% it makes you question. Do I want to subsidize feeding the super greedy just so they can have a bigger portfolio, or should it go to those that need and deserve it?

    And more importantly VOTE in the primaries next year to put real conservatives in power as your governors! We have 25-30 GOP governors each cycle and if JUST ONE of them had nerves and decided to nullify federal laws, we might actually start getting somewhere in restoring state’s rights.

    If we could get a principled conservative who believes in the right to nullify like Mike Lee, Rand Paul, or Jim DeMint as one of our governors, we could REALLY change our history.

    This is America where any person can wake up in the morning and choose to be self-determined, or to be a bum, or to be content with an 8:00 to 5:00 job working for someone who is a little more self-determined. Who in their right mind would wake up and believe it is just and okay to rob from those who are willing to grow and build our country and to provide jobs, just because they are not willing to put forth the effort? Corey, wake up. If you want more, don’t vote to rob your neighbor. Rather, go learn from your self-determined neighbors and become a man who is proud to be an American where any person may dream and turn dreams into realities. The one law that would solve our countries political divisions is that anyone who is on government welfare does not have the right to vote. No democracy can survive that allows its politicians to rob the public treasury in order to secure votes. Once voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits, with the end result that the democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

    Historical Average Democracy Lifecycle (200 years):
    From bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage.”

    You have a very good job. I am happy for you . Do you have a boss or do you own the company you work for? If you say you have a boss…why do you work for a greedy rich guy that is only out there to have you make money for him? If you are the boss… I sure hope you are not a hypocrite that is one who takes advantage of people and don’t pay them a decent wage or give them health ins.
    Reagan was great!!! Until you realize unions are only out for the big guys and not the union workers…talk about taking advantage. Unions have out lived their usefulness. We have law on the books now to protect workers. Look at the union teachers in Chicago. Tell me they are really looking at the best interest of the children. 4th graders can’t read at their own level. 50% high schooler graduate.

    glenn must, every time he says “okay if you like marxism, embrace it” BUT include “that’s not freedom,” “it’s never worked,” and so on, IMMEDIATELY after he says the “you choose” stuff.

    i know that he’s said this multiple times, however, people are slow. they have to hear the alternative every time because they will forget, or don’t know or don’t care, that tyranny is bad in so many ways.

    i don’t feel bad for bho. i don’t care why “he never had a chance to understand capitalism.” i only know what he is. that’s my only concern. i don’t like him or trust him. i do think he is a bad guy. whenever you deceive a country because you think you know better, you’re maniacal and that’s bad, very bad.

    on a back note: glenn makes a good point saying “you can’t hire someone to do what you, yourself cannot do,” however, remember the flash mobs? they will just grow.

    I would be shocked if this is shown on the left leaning stations, so if you don’t subscribe to Glenn Beck, Watch Fox, listen to Rush, read Thomas Sowell, you don’t know this tape exists and you don’t want to know. Just yesterday I had an argument with a friend, armed with facts and she refused to listen and actually said, “What, did you get that at faux news?”. We are dealing with an electorate that doesn’t want to take responsiblity for voting out of their realm of understanding; Even knowing what they do know about this man. If you are a democrat, voting Republican will cause blood to squirt out their eyes.

    Like most LEFTISTS Obama’s real dream is to transform
    American from the unfair place he believes it has been for the past 236 years
    into what he believes is a social utopia. Rather than instill great pride in
    all American’s Obama chooses to demean success and tells people that they will
    never be able to get ahead because the odds are stacked against them. This is a
    classic move by Obama and the Democrat Party, a strategy that they have
    employed for the past 100 plus years. Democrats have used this strategy on the
    black community and other minority groups to keep them from striving to live
    the lives that most people dream of. Many black Americans believe that they
    will never achieve success simply because that is what Obama and the Democrats have
    told them for generation. This is a self-fulfilling prophesy and it becomes
    increasingly difficult to believe in success when one is surrounded, no
    bombarded with a message of “hopelessness” or the roadblock of “racism” being
    preached from all corners of the Democrat Party and the media. Because of this
    only a small percentage of blacks and other minorities manage to lift
    themselves out of dire living standards, poor neighborhoods or the inferior school
    systems that they have been consigned too. Many people have bought the Democrat
    myth that they cannot make it in America without the help and support of people
    like Obama and his programs. These programs are advertised as services that benefit
    the “family”, but actually do more to destroy families and individuals. Obama
    claims to have the middle class and the poor in mind with every new program yet
    those in need actually receive little more than rhetoric from the Democrats.
    These programs cost society billions if not trillions of dollars annually yet
    the people who need them the most receive surprisingly little in the way of actual
    monetary support. In the meantime, Obama and the Democrats continue to grind
    our economy to a halt while spending trillions more annually which ultimately contributes
    to the cycle of high unemployment and increased costs on staples such as gas,
    food, healthcare and electricity. These spending levels not only reduce the
    number of available jobs Obama’s dangerous, seemingly never-ending printing of
    U.S. dollars (STIMULUS) ultimately impacts ALL AMERICANS, future generations
    not yet born as well as the rest of the world. Obama’s policies are both
    reckless and dangerous to America’s economic and personal freedoms and everyone
    will soon pay a very steep price unless we change course this November. All of
    this leads to the only conclusion that any reasonable, thinking person can come
    to… Obama’s real plan is to “level the playing field”! Contrary to what the
    Obama and his supporters in the media want you to believe his plan is not
    designed to lift up the poor and the middle class, that would take far too long
    and be far too challenging for Democrats. No, Obama’s plan is to “level the
    playing field” by ushering in a new era where America (and the world) has just two
    classes of people, “THE HAVES” and “THE HAVE NOTS”. Two easily controlled
    classes of RICH and POOR, two groups of makers and takers (although Obama and
    the Democrats will NEVER describe these two groups as makers and takers), that
    wouldn’t be fair. Understand that Democrats have always felt that they are the
    smartest most compassionate group of people in our society; Obama is trying to
    transform America so we end up with the politically connected (the wealthy) and
    everyone else. Democrat’s believe that they have already won over most of the
    minorities so now their plan is to squeeze everyone who doesn’t want to play by
    their twisted rules. This is being accomplished by tarnishing job creators
    (business people) and dividing American’s into easily segmented groups and then
    pitting them against each other. Unfortunately for Obama and the Democrats
    American’s are far smarter than they are given credit for (most Americans). In
    the long-run Obama will fail because American’s will grow tired of the energy
    required to hate each other. Ultimately most people are more interested in
    getting along and succeeding often because when someone tells us we can’t do
    that, it becomes a “challenge” and American’s seem to thrive on all types of
    challenges. Obama’s plans of dividing us and squeezing us for every last dollar
    that we have or could have is bound to fail basically because the majority of
    American’s despise chaos and thrive on success; EVERYONE’S SUCCESS! Shouldn’t
    we give Obama time to do what he loves; i.e. golf, go to parties, skip important
    national security meetings, sleep late, leave work early, play basketball and
    spend time with his family? ! Isn’t it time for Barack H. Obama to retire this
    November?

    Explain to me what have the wealthy done to build the country was it when the banks and wall street destroyed our economy or the oil compnay that are making record profits, and still get 4 billion from the goverment and instead of doing anything postive with the money (like clean up the mess there makeing to the enviorment) they just take that money buy politians to get more tax cuts. So please explain to me how the wealthy in this country are building it .

  • corey williams

    If you look at the most profitable time in this country came about because of unions in the 50′s and 60′s. They able to fight for respectable pay, benefits and clean and safe working condition. I own my own buiness and i have two employees that are paid very well. But because i do dosn’t not mean everybosy does especilly big company works should have the right to fight for fairness without the union that can’t happen. Stop blaming the teachers on everything. How can a teacher teach when she has to babysit have of the class because the parents at home don’t displine there child. If a child will talk back and disrespect there parent you really think that they are going to respect a teacher know matter how good the teacher is. And because of that it takes away from the teacher teaching the rest of the class edication starts at home. Parent don’t come to parent teacher conf. they don’t take any interest in there childs school work. But the moment there child fails its the teachers fault no parents have to start taking responsiblity for there child instaed of blaming the teacher. It is unfair to judge teacher on a standardize test if a child does not want to learn you can’t teach him.

  • Rob

    I’m a republican, but I don’t believe that 5% of the people should own 95% of the wealth. That number needs to come down. There needs to be some type of redistribution. We got 2 douche bags running for president that nobody wants. Romney bought his way on the ticket.

  • corey williams

    Bush gaves us the biggest economic crisis since the great depression(Which Obama kept of from dropping ointo the drpression, and some of that trillion dollars the obama had to add was because bush two failed wars. One of which we had no reason being in. If you expected Obama to fix the economy in one term your delusional. he can’t fix it in two terms no one can the only thing he could do is get us going in the right direction. It doen’t work that way. you think we got pulled out of the great depression over night not it took time and regulations(I know that a four letter word around here)

  • corey williams

    And remebre bush rewarded his freind deregulating the energy market in california wich led to eron who was ran by a close frein of bust (Ken Lay), not to mention all of the tax payer money that he gave to the big investment backs. Let stop pretending that the bush year never ahppen that they have no affect on was going on to day .

    Rob dear, I do believe you are part of the problem thinking the way you do. Do you know what a troll is? If so, are you one of those people?

  • corey williams

    So that is everybody don’t lump everybody in to the small number of people you know. Most people on unemployment don’t do drugs and want to work and for better car than you, You don’t know what kind of job they had before they where unemployed and becaus your getting unemployment or welfare does not mean that you are not looking for a job.

  • corey williams

    So because you dis agree with him you call him a name. Very Adult ,
    Rob is right something is wrong with those numbers and there needs to be a change and we need to stop making it a republican and democrat issue the 95% of us are repclican, demicrats and independent we need to work together.

    go look at the books see where all the money is going and why it is going there and tell me there dosn’t need to be a change.

    Corey, how do you figure that……Where did you get that info? It’s wealth and the name Reagan is capitalized. You really need to keep better company.
    I don’t know where you are getting that nonsense; If every wealthy person were to pay 100% of their $$$, It still wouldn’t be enough. Do you understand what this means Corey? Eventually, the government will run out of money and everyone counting on the government financially will be disappointed and angry. So, to prevent that from happening, we have to make sure we create jobs, so everyone can have one. Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t believe you should have a job so you can take care of your family! Is this what you want? Wouldn’t you rather be the one in control of YOUR money instead of waiting for a handout from Mr. Obama? You get to keep your self esteem and no one can tell you what to do.

  • Sebastian Kaine

    If I am one of the 5% that worked for everything I have (or better say you are), why in the world is it fair or “justice” to take from me and give to someone else? Why not create a stable environment, a stable economy, and give everyone the equal opportunity to make the same money for themselves? Oh wait, that’s what we are supposed to do….that’s what America is all about. I don’t have a problem helping people who are trying, but even Jesus said if a man would not work neither should he eat….was he wrong too?

    First off if you have to state that you are a Republican, you probably are not one. Secondly those 5% pay 95%of the taxes in this country . You want them to pay more? Where is the incentive for them to keep producing? If Obama has his way that 5% will go down to 1% and that1% will be the ones in power, i.e. Obama and his cronies.

  • Joe Andrews

    Corey, quit your whining! I have never asked or took help from the Government, period! Not even from local or state job services. When I was out of work, I took a lesser job for even less money. I am a Hemiplegic who COULD get disability, but choose not to because I don’t want big brother AKA the “Government” supporting me. I have never been out of work for more than 4 weeks at a time, no unemployment period! Work is out there, it may not be what you want, but work is out there! Suck it up! SAVE your money, instead of blowing every dime you have, DON’T BE a fool. Do I make a lot of money? Hell no, I make enough to get by, and save. If anybody is out of work more than 4 weeks, they are plain LAZY!! I can imagine that most on unemployment have more than I do except for one thing! DIGNITY!

  • corey williams

    One i am not the 1% percent i am a small business owner. How i’m i a hypocrite to feel that all works should be paid and treated fairly like i do mine. that’s not being a hypocrite it’s wanting people to be treated with respect and paid fairly no matter who they are. Like i said if the parents are lazy and they teacher has to not only teach but also parent your child it is not the teachers fult your child doesn’t long the max a child see a teach is about 6 hr a day 5 days a week for a few month but there with there parents all the time so there is no reason the teacher should have to waster there time doing the parents job if you don’t care to take responsiblity for job as a parent that your chose but don’t go pointing the finger sat teacher because you can’t parent your child and you see these disrescpectful kids around time with no discipline and they act the same way in school parents don’t want to deal with so the teach have to do both parenting and teaching and that not right.

    Redistribution of Wealth only works provided there is wealth to redistribute. Perhaps someone should say so. All that has to happen is that the wealthy leave with their money, and the rest of us will never then aspire to rise to a wealthier life because it will only be taken from us and given to someone else. Everyone then becomes a sucker, a moocher, the servant of every other person. Where will be the motivation to build wealth? Gone. THEN, what happens when there is no more wealth to redistribute? It’s a system that will fall in on itself. Those that believe in redistributing wealth should redistribute their own wealth, voluntarily and stop whining about it. It’s system that will collapse. There will be no more wealth to redistribute.

    Why do we only pick on the 47% who don’t pay “income taxes”. Let’s also look at those who rake in millions in investment income every year who are exempt, and all the corporations who steel billions of tax dollars from us overcharging for bloated government programs so they can grease our politicians to get even more contracts. What about government workers who cruise down easy street making way more than private sector workers. (excluding regular military of course, who are way under paid and treated like crap to protect our rights). Elected officials who live like royalty on the tax payer dole, crony donations, and perks. (Or best explained as stolen money and bribes) I could go on and on. My point is, welfare doesn’t only extend to the poor. 47% !!!??……Indeed. I think everything needs to be put on the table, stop singling out only those people who don’t pay “income taxes”. . Lets stop dividing our country and look at the truth, all the sacred cows are destroying us. Politicians are the biggest leaches on the a$$ of society so they have no room to talk. Our Republic and Capitalism both work best when Government does only what it was designed to do, protect freedom and make way for commerce to flourish with no favorites. The only issue here should be, do we want small government or not. We already have that answer if you believe in our founding and form of government, if not, go live in one of the other 196 – + countries in the world.

Take heed, if we don’t get Obama out of our White House we are doomed. I told my mom and family we should sell out and move to Israel…..pretty tempting. I do love my country, though, so I will get out and vote (only wished I could vote twice) how does the Dems do that again (cheat)…

    I don’t know how many times the words of liberals show their leanings toward destruction of the American way of life and yet they still are revered by so many in society who believe that it is morally wrong for one person to have more than the next. Never mind that the person with the most has sacrificed a great deal of time and energy, and worked smarter and harder to get what they have. “It just isn’t fair” according to those who are not willing to do what it takes. Wealth is never achieved by government handouts. The only true producer of wealth is WORK!!!! We have repeatedly as a nation rewarded hard work and creativity with wealth and security, but there are those in our country that want to steal from those individuals, not only their wealth, but also the willingness to create that wealth through confiscatory taxes and regulation.

    The old Soviet Union’s Communist Manifesto’s is simple. “From each according to his ability,to each according to his need.” In other words, let’s take from those who produce and give to them that don’t. It is not immoral to create and have wealth except in the minds of those who are not willing to produce it themselves. That would require WORK. It is human nature to want something for nothing and Marxist/Socialist have attempted to lay a guilt trip on those who have accumulated some wealth. Why not let the President’s own words show who and what he his. Is it simply that we want to turn a blind eye to what he is, or is it just that we don’t care anymore? I hope it is neither of these. Only the election results will give us the answer. We will get what we deserve.

    The problem is, the business climate is one of rules. And those with the money and power make the rules to keep others out, that is why it is very difficult to break into the next class. Our Tax structure is designed to keep the classes separated and to make sure the super rich keep the largest percentage of money. If you can buy a few politicians you can keep the lower classes at a disadvantage, therefore securing you position, your money and your power. We don’t need to redistribute wealth, we need to make this a nation of laws again. not of men.

    Yes. Obummer seems convinced that certain groups all over the world have been “robbed” of their inheritance, and he proceeds from that basis. His father was a Marxist and rabid hater of the putative “colonial powers,” which translates into the hatred of Western civilization, of course. Obummer’s father abandoned him as we all know, but Obummer expressed these sentiments – fulfill the dreams of his father – in the book by that same name.

    Funny how these Millionaire Democrat politicians want to redistribute the wealth,they do not chose to use their wealth to do it.
    Ever wonder why they,the Liberal Politicians are reluctant to give generously to charity,yet talk about redistribution of wealth as if it means we become wealthy?
    Oh no people,this group of greedy,people have never said redistribution would make the poor wealthy,no not the deal. The deal is to make the middle class poor,and then dependant on the Government Charity called welfare.
    But if you have ever dealt with the Department of Human Services you will find that their primary goal is to prevent anyone from ever moving ahead and not needing them.
    Save up while on food stamps and they will take away the aid,because part of their “HELP” is to know and access every record of your life,Bank,car,home,savings,even the phone records or any other expense,and if you do not allow their monitoring they simply create a figure for your aid group that is to high to receive the benefit.
    After a year of this roller coaster,and proving time and again the same case worker was making the same mistake,even involving my Local Congressman The result was for us to drop the appeal,and forget the abuse.
    In the end you are dependant on the Government Unionized worker,who cannot be fired,blamed or held accountable for their actions.They are like our Police departments,their only scrutiny comes from other Government employees.
    Redistribution can work,and will work to lower the standard of living of everyone,except the Politicians,and the elite who are never going to lose their wealth for us.

    REPUBLICAN SENATORS KILL VETERANS BILL

    Republican Heller Votes with Democrats on VETERANS’ JOBS BILL, but the Grand Old Party was Still Able to Block the Bill from Becoming Law

    FILIBUSTERING and VOTING AGAINST THE BILL were Republicans; Minority Leader MITCH McCONNELL, Senator JEFF SESSIONS of Alabama, Sen. RAND PAUL of Kentucky, Senator JOHN BOOZMAN of Arkansas, Senator MIKE JOHANS of Nebraska, Senator RICHARD BURR of North Carolina, Senator PAT TOOMEY of Pennsylvania and Senator TOM COBURN of Oklahoma and most other Republican Senators. The measure would have provided a billion dollars toward getting up to 20,000 veterans employed. Veterans have a higher that average unemployment rate today. These men and their Republican cohorts struck a blow against Veterans who are committing suicide at the highest rate in history by effectively killing this bill for this congressional session. With over 200,000 Veterans currently unemployed this is an outrage and a disgrace for every these Senators and those who support them from their respective States.

    Many are asking; What has happened to the Republican Party, does their hate for Obama have such power that they can no longer vote for what is best for the nation as a whole? The same Republicans complain that due to Obama’s policies the unemployment rate is over 8% and then block a bill that would lower that rate when given the opportunity.

    This is VERY STRANGE indeed; what in the world is going on in the minds of the Republican Senators. I voted for Reagan, both George Bush 1 and 2 as well as McCain, against Obama. This is not the Republican Party I voted for in the past, something very strange is going on.

    Maybe he needs to stop propping up unions and corporations with Tax payer dollars. A huge chunk of the stimulus went to his cronies. He used it for his own “little” slush fund. Defense is the one area the government is required to maintain. He has invaded more countries than Bush, emboldened our enemies and dissed our allies. Then he contends that we need to cut defense. Who the hell is this guy!!(rhetorical)) The mask fell off in 09 and a bunch of Brain dead morons voted him in regardless. Also, in my opinion at this point, if someone doesn’t know who to vote against, they have been consuming way to much meth. I feel like i’m living in a sinister parallel universe as of 2001. People have completely walked off the deep end. This isn’t the country I thought it was.

    In terms of having the traditional tax base – what you present has long been understood, although, Obama is currently in the process (in a radical undermining attempt) to take the idea to places this nation has never been before – Bail outs of companies “to big to fail” – health care for all – Pumping millions into unproven industry -free housing – we’ve turned into a nation of whiners who are so afraid of failure – it now becomes the governments responsibility to prop us up.

    We then become willful servants to the government – self induced slavery

    Obama’s form of “Redistribution” is socialistic at best and past histories, found in nations who have tried this system show, when the money train dries up, the population riot in the streets.

    what will the “rich” do when more and more of their money gets taken away?
    you think they will stay or leave? and who will pay for all of it then? or do they just print more money? and then?

    So true. We are locked in a battle with those who’s stubbornness has shown them to be the unwilling participants for logical debate.(Not that they won’t argue with you all day long and hound you on your position) The great majority on the left do not have the appetite for facts or rational thought. It boils down to this – ‘what can Uncle Sam do for me next’. They feel, just because they are Americans, that alone for some reason – entitles them the right to be healthy, wealthy, successful and if for no reason of their own, they find themselves residing in a lower tax bracket then they desire, redistribution becomes their political talking points – a battle-cry for – spoiled – selfish – spineless – babies.

  • Sandie

    Do you know why they did this? There must be something that was put into/added to the bill that turned them off. That is usually what happens, and that part off the story never gets told so these guys look like the bad guys. I have seen this sort of thing go on when I have watched the CSPAN channels. Unfortunately, I didn’t see any coverage, if there was any, on this legislation.

  • Sandie

    When the rich leave or have given over much of their wealth, where will more come from? It will come from those next down on the wealth ladder. Soon it will be the upper-middle class, and over time the middle class. Those in Congress who are so ready to tax millionaires extra will soon be the next category of income to be taxed more. Think they will happily join in spreading their income around? Of course not, that is why Nancy Pelosi was adamant that the tax on the rich would not be on those earning over $250,000, but rather on those over $1,000,000.

  • Sandie

    That is not redistribution in the sense it is normally spoken about. Everyone recognizes that we must pay out of tax dollars for police, veterans medical benefits, and schools (these people did something to earn it) and BTW – social security is not redistribution, it is money we and our employers paid in that is coming back; the employers part paid in to partially run the system is redistributive to a degree. The redistribution discussion is about taxpayer money being used for social programs that literally give to those who never paid in and don’t/didn’t do anything to earn it, and who are not incentivized to do anything to support themselves and their families/relatives. You are trying to lump two different situations together that are not equivalent. In one we pay for a service we use or that protects us in some way, in the other we are not, we are giving money away.

    The democrats do not understand the rational thinking, that it is not necessary to throw away the whole car – just because of a flat tire.

    Does the tire need repair or even replacement – indeed it does. Keeping in mind, that sometime in the future we may hit another unforeseen bump in the road, causing us further repair, but we don’t trash the whole car for one messily little tire.

    America is the car and at the moment, we have a flat and have sputtered to a standstill. The Obama administration has put forth the idea that we need to throw out the whole thing and start something completely new. Is this fellow that much smarter than our founding fathers? Can he backup his stately academic credentials with proof – or will we simply have to take his word, because so far, what he has prescribed, and what he has demonstrated is the opposite of wisdom. He has pawned off leadership and replaced it with foolishness and folly.

    Are there things that need to be fixed here in America – YES. For one example, we could do better on behalf of our veterans, for instance give them what they deserve especially for the families who’s loved one has fallen. We must remember and keep in mind, that we are vast nation having multiple components, not everything is going to work perfect all the time and from time to time, we will have to repair or replace certain components in public policy. Things that are no longer useful or have outdated themselves – but you don’t throw away America because we currently have a flat tire.

    YES! Romney needs to blow it up! Meaning, do something bold as Newt suggested (1) by following Obama wherever Obama stumps and immediately fact check. (2) put it in writing i.e. sign a contract with 100% of the American people.
    (a) Fix Health Care but not as a mandatory Tax.
    (b) If, you are 55 years of Age or older no changes other than putting it back before Obama screwed it up.

The banter of “it is wrong when your guy steals from us is better than when my guy steals from us is pointless”. I am an AMERICAN and I think it is wrong when any politician steals from us, Republican or Democrat!

    You are an ignorant fool. Redistribution of wealth does none of things. Bush’s wars? Hey stupid, how about Bosnia and Kosovo or Yemen and the guys in Uganda, none of which are “Bush’s wars.” That would be paying for SSI? Are you that stupid? SSI and Medicare are taken out of people’s pay checks. Had those things not been put into the general fund, we wouldn’t have a problem. By the way, Property taxes are what pay “first responders,” if you actually owned something you would know that. You obviously don’t have the first clue about which you speak, so shut your pie hole, dunce.

    Hey stupid, you are still running that Bush administration B S. If you think this whole thing was created under one president, you are a bigger fool than anyone could have imagined. Maybe you should learn from history, entitlement programs don’t work. Te only thing you are trying to do is make “trickle up poverty” the norm. Dunce.

  • greywolfrs

    WOW! This shit keeps dropping out of your pie hole. Redistribution of wealth doesn’t work, that is trickle up poverty. Instead of being jealous of the “1%,” why don’t you go out create your own wealth. You prefer the government deciding who has “too much” and taking it to give to you. I have a good idea, support yourself, dirtbag.

  • greywolfrs

    So, it’s OK to blame Bush, but not Obamao. Typical left wing idiot.

  • greywolfrs

    Redistribution of wealth = trickle up poverty. Left wing idiots do not seem to understand that the problem is with our so called elected officials. One never needs to look further than there. Those people went into “public service” to serve themselves and that is exactly what they are doing. If anyone doubts this statement, look at the net worth of someone like Piglosi when she first got elected and compare that to her net worth NOW. She didn’t make all that money from her salary in congress.

  • greywolfrs

    I hear what you are saying, but let’s be realistic, when has the government ever rid themselves of anything? Never. They keep adding more B S to the whole thing and now we are faced with an out-of-control tyrannical government.

  • greywolfrs

    It doesn’t matter if it is there or not. The problem is simple, after you redistribute it, the people who know how to acquire it will have it back in no time. Those who have no idea how to get it, will squander it, right back into the hands of those that know how to acquire it. It is a ponzi scheme. Once those people reacquire it, is it going to need to be redistributed again? How many times will that happen before someone realizes it will NEVER work? The only way to insure it doesn’t happen again is to go to some form of collectivist type government, i.e. socialism/communism. Even then, it happens because the people at the “top” feel entitled to more. In the end, they end up with all the wealth.

    Well actually they have – but in the wrong area and for the wrong reasons. Regan’s “trust but verify” seemed all good at the time and the right thing to do but, when dealing with the Russians, who are notorious for not keeping their word, verification is impossible, especially when the subject is nuclear arms.

    So what does America do – discard a large portion of our nukes, not that we still don’t possess enough to kill the world over ten times, because we probably do. Point is, when it makes sense to clean house and dissolve a few old worthless bills, there almost always kept on the books adding to government bureaucracy and slowing down the over all progress of our people.

    Now, as I’m sure you’ve probably heard by now, we’re cutting Military Spending $650 over the next ten years – this, at a time when, it wouldn’t hurt to beef it up and perhaps do away with – oh for instance – Obamacare.

  • greywolfrs

    Well, I can see several things that can be done away with, not just Obamaocare. I do believe we should keep our military at the top of the world and that is actually something the Constitution grants to the Feds.

    Reasoning with you is impossible. If Obama gets back in, and the economy collapses, who are you going to blame? Will it still be Bush’s fault, or the Republicans?If you ask Obama, it will absolutely be one of those, because he is one person who will never take responsibility for anything. He is not like Truman, who said “the buck stops here”, his motto is, “It’s his fault (Bush’s, Romney’s, mean republicans, rich people, the army, the navy, ANYBODY but me )

  • greywolfrs

    First, to say it’s Republicans that want those hand-outs from the rich is bullshit. It’s both sides. Second, I can see you hate rich people, why would that be? Maybe because you are not one. Jealousy is an ugly emotion. Third, morons like you continue to spout these stupid left wing talking points, all the while, you want someone else to pay for you shit. You claim that the rich do not pay their fair share, yet 47% of the country pays NOTHING. You think that success should come with consequences. That is not capitalism. Fourth, the biggest reason the rich get richer is they know how to create wealth, something you obviously do not know how to do.
    In conclusion, redistribution of wealth is bullshit. Once it is redistributed, those that know how to acquire it, will. Those that do not know how to acquire it, will lose it to those that do. Then what? Redistribute it again? So, the cycle starts all over again. There is only one way to ensure it does not happen again, institute a collectivist type government, i.e. socialism/communism. Oh wait, those don’t work either because the people at the top feel they deserve more, except there are less rich people in that case. Besides, this country was founded on capitalistic ideas and the Constitution flys in the face of those types of government.
    Now, go learn something before opening your pie hole, dumb M F er.

  • greywolfrs

    Again, you have plenty of blame for one president and none for another. You are really stupid. He isn’t going to fix it in two terms either. Why?

    Obama has repeatedly made his beliefs clear. He WANTS the Republicans to reject his budget because then all of the tax hikes that he has wanted to put into place will happen automatically and he will have the luxury of blaming the Republicans for it.

    He constantly provokes the media to see just how far he can push it and how willing they are to prove their loyalty to the “cause”. The media takes the cue and obfuscates the entire issue, hides his most provocative words, downplay his marxist declarations, instead, attacking the other side with ruthless abandon for the slightest implication. His every reaction to Romney’s words, no matter how benign or how out of context begins with the words, “We are shocked…”. Apparently, everything on earth shocks him if it comes from the mouth of a conservative. However, each and every time those words are used, the press competes with each other to see who can put together the most strident condemnation possible. They are so hysterical that much of their speech borders on naked hate.

    Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Gore and every other liberal have a free pass to say ANYTHING with the knowledge that they will never be called racist, never be condemned for their words, never have to justify any lies. They can rest easy in the full knowledge that the press will either ignore their hypocrisy or, if they can’t come up with something to quell the outrage, the press will simply attack the other side.

    Today, on Fox News with Megan Kelly, she had Alan Colmes (a cadaverous liberal ghoul with a vacuous stare on his face) and Mike Gallagher, an author of a book about the 50 top things that liberals hate. The Obama campaign has just commissioned two images using the American flag finger painted in what looks like blood, but it has Obama’s campaign logo where the stars should be. Mike Gallagher pointed out that Obama refuses to either salute the flag or wear a lapel flag. The American people overall, and the military, specifically, reverences the symbolism of the flag. They respect this. Alan Colmes had nothing but mockery for those who have questioned why Obama would put his “O” where the stars should be. He tried to say that the troops should support this because they are “supposedly fighting for freedom” and that includes the freedom to desecrate the flag. What is the reaction of the MSM? They are attacking Romney and conservatives for their failure to stand up for the principles of freedom hard won by the founding fathers of this country!! 24 hours ago, they despised the founding fathers. Today, conveniently enough, marxists “own” the principles of freedom espoused by the founding fathers.

    Obama is barely hiding his marxist proclivities. If he is reelected, he will have absolutely nothing that will prevent him from completely suspending the Constitution and doing away with any pretense of belief in any of the principles that this country was built on. Should this country choose this, we will have chosen our own demise. The damage will be incalculable and unrecoverable.

    Redistribution for fairness is what parents of small children do all the time. Older children are even given trophies by their parents when they don’t always succeed.

    Obama knows the psyche of his audience and totally knows what he is doing to gain success. Obama didn’t cause Americas’ adult babies. We the people did this to ourselves. Obama is speaking to Americas’ cradle so they wont cry, take what he promises but can’t give and will love him dearly!

    There are 7 stages in life. The first 3 are babyhood, childhood and puberty. These stages are the narcissistic and receiving period of life. The majority of Americans have grown to remain in this stage because the next 4 stages require maturity, pain, giving, keeping moral laws and personal responsibility.

    Wrong, again. The DEMOCRATS in control of Congress gave us the biggest economic crisis since the great depression. Bush actually warned Congress that what they were doing would lead to the mess. Guess what. Congress flat out IGNORED him anyway.

    And Obama kept us from dropping into a depression? What world are you living in? Obama did NOTHING but send us into a double dip recession. You really are stupid, you know.

    And two failed wars? Hate to break this to you, but those two wars were SUCCESSFUL wars. Saddam Hussein is dead and Iraq is freed of his tyranny. Success. The Taliban were ousted and Osama bin Laden and his Al Queda were running. Success. It eventually led to the death of Osama bin Laden. Again, another SUCCESS. We seeing a patter here yet? Let’s not go into Obama’s flat out ILLEGAL wars here, lol.

    Also, NO. Regulation did NOT pull us out of the Great Depression. Your TOTAL ignorance of history is astounding. In ACTUAL HISTORICAL FACT, government regulation made the Great Depression last for about another decade longer than it should have. If there were NO MORE government regulations to begin with, the Great Depression would have lasted NO MORE than a year or two. BECAUSE OF government regulation, it lasted about a decade. This is DOCUMENTED HISTORICAL FACT, for crying out loud.

    Uhm, NO. Son, the best economic time in this country was back in the 90s when Reagan’s DEregulations finally started to work. The very WORST economic time in this country was the 30s, and that is mostly BECAUSE OF FDR’s regulations, lol. This is DOCUMENTED HISTORICAL FACT. And the 50s and 60s are NOWHERE close to being the best economic time in this country. In fact, between the 30s and 90s, there was only ONE truly decent economic time in this country and that was the 90s AFTER REAGAN’s economic policy of DEregulation started to kick in. You see, even Clinton kept many of Reagan’s deregulatory policies in play simply because Reagan’s policies WERE ACTUALLY WORKING. FDR’s regulations caused the Great Depression to last 10 years LONGER than it should have. If not for FDR’s regulations, the Great Depression would have ended in just a year or two. BECAUSE OF FDR’s regulations, the Great Depression lasted 10 years and was only broken by the upswing in manufacturing caused by a certain global war. It was WWII that ultimately brought us out of the Great Depression and caused an upward shift of our economy, NOT FDR’s regulations. And that upward shift in our economy did NOT see anywhere near the upward shift brought by the roaring 20s or Reagan’s deregulation.

    Go look at the number of middle class and unemployed working in the 50-60 and look at the numbers in the 90s.

  • Anonymous

    K. Proof that you haven’t looked at it. Here you go, straight from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    http://www.bls.gov/cps/prev_yrs.htm
    In 1950 the unemployment rate was 5.3%. It went as low as 2.9% in 1953, but than climbed to 6.8% in 1958. Mind you, that 2.9% unemployment was NOT because of FDR’s or government regulations, nor was it an actual sign of the BEST economic time in our history. Though the unemployment rate is ONE sign of our economy it is NOT the ONLY sign, dunce.

    Now, to the 90s. In 1990, our unemployment rate was 5.6%, not much different from the 50s I might add lol. It went as high as 7.5% in 1992. Now, according to many ACTUAL experts in economics, that’s about when Reagan’s policies of deregulation actually started to kick in. Not to mention that Clinton actually kept some of those policies in place because they WERE ACTUALLY WORKING. It helped bring our unemployment rate DOWN to 4.2% by 1999 ONLY for CLINTON’s recession to kick in in 2000 when it started climbing again.

    Now, go back to school, son. Learn about economics a little.

    Uhm, NO, moron. FDR’s regulations and the Unions had absolutely NOTHING to do with that 2.9% unemployment. You really ARE stupid, aren’t you.

It was ultimately WWII that brought the unemployment rate down thanks to the manufacturing and even military jobs it created. It took a WAR to do so, mind you. And it was Eisenhower who kept it low going into the 60s. This is DOCUMENTED HISTORICAL FACT document by our own Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    And I judge our economy on a NUMBER OF ISSUES including the unemployment rate, as anyone who has any clue in how our economy actually works would.

    Did you hear Obama at Virginia’s Hampton University, where his buddy Jeremiah Wright was in the audience, and he was talking with the cadence of a real urban thug, replete with one racist reference after another. Sounded like Al Sharpton, the way he always gives the community of his people excuses for why they are doing so poorly. I’ve been astonished before, like when he went to the most prestigious school on the Hawaiian Island, Punahou. He had a privileged life once he left his birth home of Kenya.

    Now, be smart and compare how much we pay in defense as a percentage of GDP to other countries, and you will soon realize that what the US pays in defense isn’t really all that much, lol.

Take away all the Federal Drug laws bc when Xanax, Adderal and Oxycontin is legal really why not heroin and cocaine. First there the exact same things except the ladder is actually from god while the other ones are man made chemicals which are identical to their natural counter parts, in their chemical structures, how do you think they got them to work, copy gods work and sell it at a higher cost. We need to  cut the budget for the Military and completely stop wasting our weapons and money and Israel, forget them let them get nuked and destroyed. Stop wasting our money on oil wars. Get rid of the patriot act and all laws that have been passed in the last 100 years. Make New laws that give jail time to all Political figures who even talk to a lobbyist. Lobbyist should only be allowed to have presentations on the congressional floor to every constituent, that’s it. Take away any rights corporation have, like them being humans and if you want to keep these laws that make corporations people there prison and jail time for all board members and CEO CFO when ever a company does not follow laws like negligence at a work place.   Like i said before legalize but also tax all Drugs like marijuana. Either get rid of the department of education or revise it to a point where all state universities are free to the public, I mean we’re already paying for it in our taxes. GET ALL THE MONEY OUT OF WASHINGTON FUCK WALL STREET. We have to get rid of all this corporate welfare and farm subsidies, i thought this was a capitalist system not communism. If Bank of America or what ever fucking corporation cant make it then let them go broke, and freeze all the bank accounts and assets of their board members and CEO take their money, in case they cant pay off their workers or anything like that.

    Lol.. if you’re at home waiting and watching them all day shouldn’t you be out working? Everyone is always pointing the finger it’s funny after a while.. Unemployment is RARELY given out if you haven’t ACCUMULATED it.. so that’s something else all together.. and as far as the people dealing drugs to supplement income.. Some people spend YEARS looking for a job and some find small job after small job not even making enough money to live, just so they can say, I HAVE A JOB.. you only live once and we are not all born with the same opportunities..  that’s just the cold harsh truth..  Besides all of this.. the point here is that NONE of these presidents care about the people.  We are turning into a “have” or “have not” country.. black and white doesn’t matter anymore.. WE ALL HAVE TO COME TOGETHER AND DO WHAT’S RIGHT AND FAIR FOR EVERYONE AND UNITIL THEN WE WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO BE DIVIDED AND CONQUERED.  Let go of the hate and be smart and stop supporting people if they aren’t helping us becoming a better society as a whole.
