Share the wealth
In my opinion, anyone in America that believes in “Share the wealth” concept of redistribution, is not only a simpleton, but should go live in another country, especially the first family. In an article in the Washington Post http://washingtonexaminer.com/politics/washington-secrets/2012/02/michelle-obamas-pitch-share-wealth/304981, (To about 300 supporters wealthy enough to pay $300-$10,000 to attend the mid-day event) the first lady said, "If a family in this country is struggling, we cannot be satisfied with our own families' good fortune." Well then, why is the First family spending oodles of money on vacations? Because they really don't care about the average person. They want to stay in power and keep the poor still poor and the middle class paying for most of the redistribution and help the rich when they can, without anyone else knowing they do.
“She also rapped the rich, as has her husband. "Who do we want to be?" Obama asked. "Will we be a country where success is limited to the few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off." She doesn't get it. She is this stupid. No Michelle, we are all better off if we have the opportunity to get to where we want to be with that chance of hope. Not your stupid handouts.
The “Obamination” spreading our country like a plague, is people thinking they can get something and not work for it. Yes, the entitled ones that love the fact that the government is giving them the “Redistribution” that someone else worked for. Problem with this is, like a marriage where a spouse gets used to living at a certain level, there will be at some point in time the spouse demands more to live on. How much more do we dig for the people that have grown enslaved to the “free” government check, just because you have a pulse, syndrome? How fair do we need to be?
So, we get to a place where we need to “Redistribute” more money and this leads to MORE taxation and MORE power that the government need to exert since more regulation is coming. Why anyone would think that this is the American way, is just beyond all comprehension of common sense. Allen West could not have said it better! "Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else.” Also, by taking this handout, you enslave most, because they will be happy with the monies they get and not try to “Make it” like their predecessors used to when they first came to America. You have just given them the check that will dissipate their motivation to acceptance rather than eagerness. As for the ones that have the drive and motivation, theirs is also now tempered to a stagnation that America hasn't seen. Why do I have work my but off for them? For you to thrive, you must pay OVER your fair share for the ones that get that check.
I also wanted to explain my point of helping the rich when no one else sees it. The Keystone XL pipeline, by far, will put America on the map for oil recovery and production if it is routed to Texas, like proposed. Obama killed this attempt to pass this because he claims he only had a few weeks to study this proposal. That being a blatant lie aside, there is another aspect to this story. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC, which is among the railroads that would transport oil produced in western Canada if the pipeline isn’t built. So he is also making the rich, richer. Would people get rich if the pipeline was built? I would think so. But why would you want all that redirection of all the synthetic crude oil and diluted bitumen not to go to the U.S.?
There is a dangerous precedent being forged in the Obamination camp of lies, deception and a downright power takeover. If he gets his way, he will have the U.S. as his slaves to the government that is all-knowing, all-powerful and all encompassing. I think that has been his “Modus operandi” ever since he took office. This is not the American way and hopefully soon, this will be corrected in the upcoming election, later this year.
