Barack Obama promotes more racism and socialism in America.
Welcome to the first of my articles in Looking For Reason. I was sent a link to a YouTube video the other day that I finally got around to watching this evening; I was astounded by what I saw. [Please take a couple of minutes to watch before continuing on.] Now, can you imagine the outrage if Newt was pushing “Whites for Gingrich” or “Mormons for Mitt” or Catholics for Santorum? Shouldn’t African-Americans for Obama, be seen as every bit as racist as those would be? Once again the MSM gives the left a pass for something, that they would crucify a conservative for doing. As long as we continue to distinguish groups of people by the color of their skin, or even their religious beliefs, there will never be true equality in America.
What bothered me as much as the name African-Americans for Obama, was his comment “We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, or we can build a nation where everyone gets a fair shot, everybody does their fair share, and everybody plays by the same rules.” Until the progressives/liberals came along that was exactly how this country worked. Let’s be clear here, this is not what Obama really wants, remember when he told Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher — “Joe the Plumber” during his first campaign? “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” That ladies and gentlemen is called socialism!
Socialism is not about everyone getting a fair shot, it’s not about everyone doing their fair share, and it sure as hell isn’t about playing by the same rules! Here’s why, let’s say I come up with the idea for a new widget that makes people’s lives easier and more productive. I put my idea on the market and I make $600.00 a month profit. Now my neighbor is sort of lazy, he doesn’t have any ideas, so he just community organizes for $200.00 a month. That’s fair right? I came up with an original idea, I worked harder and so I get more.
Well, not in Mr. Obama’s world view. You see my neighbor shouldn’t have to suffer because I’m more successful than he is, so Mr. Obama would take $200.00 from me and give it to my neighbor so now we both have $400.00. Oh, but wait we didn’t give the government it’s processing fee, so they will take $250.00 from me and give my neighbor $150.00 keeping the other $100.00 as an administrative fee. So, now I have $350.00, my neighbor has $350.00 and the government has it’s $100.00 fee. That’s fairness in the Obama world view.
The problem with that is that the next time I have a great idea, I’m going to keep it to myself. In fact I’ll probably start just community organizing part-time and collecting those handouts from Uncle Sam & Mr. Obama. How long will it be before every innovator out there does the same and that whole turd goes right down the toilet? Like Margret Thatcher said… “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money”.
The Declaration of Independence says…
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That all men are created equal, does not mean that they are entitled to equal shares of what others have worked for. It’s about equality of opportunity not equality of possessions. God gave us these “unalienable rights” not the government, and for the government to take from a richer man to give to a poorer man violates the God-given rights of the richer man to fulfil a non-existent right of the poorer man.
Thomas Jefferson is my favorite founding father; he was a brilliant, well read, and well educated man. Here is a quote that speaks to this issue… “To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816
With this new campaign, Obama no longer bothers to disguise his divisive racism, or his push for a socialist remaking of America, not that he ever tried to hide the latter. I find both repugnant, and can only wonder how anyone who claims to love this country, or who isn’t sitting on a curb with his hand out to the government could support this man for another term.
