To begin, it is in YOUR OPINION that Obama’s policies will help this economy. And to be honest I am not putting that much faith in his ideas. To begin it is counter intuitive to think that by increasing the cost of doing business, increasing the taxes on business, increasing the regulations on business, increasing the cost of investing in business will lead to economic prosperity. This country is not, and never will be, a tax hike away from prosperity. Secondly, the focus of the Obama Administration has been focusing on the EFFECTS of the recession and not doing anything about the DISEASE. His idea is to take money from the more wealthy so that he can afford the increased output in welfare checks. You see this as a benevolent action, I see it as akin to dependency slavery similar to the Panem et Circenses of the Roman Empire. When you increase taxes, you have more money for welfare spending. But then people lose their jobs as a result, creating more people requiring welfare. This creates an endless cycle until, as Margaret Thatcher state, “You run out of other people’s money”.
You say that he is the crusader of the poor, I say he’s the oppressor. He has destroyed the business drive of this country. He has forced companies to ship overseas to the irony of tax codes that is China. You then focus on the big bad businessman instead of WHY the businessman left. If he could make money here, he wouldn’t go abroad. By punishing the evil rich, you are perpetuating high unemployment and utter misery of the lower classes and the minorities. The NAACP spokesman admitted the other day that blacks have fair more poorly under Obama than his predecessor. By his actions, those of the lower echelon are not able to find employment and must now turn to the government, again ironically the ones who put them there, for sustenance. That almost sounds like dependency slavery to me.
In addition, to mask your role in their misery, you rally up hatred and hysteria and sick the more crazy side of liberals (Occupy Wall Street) on fellow American citizens. You blame the rich for everything, not paying fair shares, and dirty dealing, and they must be punished and leashed. And then you can’t figure out why they take their business elsewhere? The the radicals set fire to people’s offices, attack people in the street, set up sieges where it becomes intimidating and dangerous just to walk to work. Not just the rich either, all those terrible minions of the rich who simply wanted A JOB.
Get off your high horse, Obama and the Liberal Left are not interested in freedom or justice. They want control. Control over people. Control over business. Complete control of the personal and professional lives of all American citizens. Every policy and legislation they carry out leads to another freedom being taking away. There are few, and mostly socially-based, legislations that result in more freedom such as the Women in Combat. But when it comes to the economy, they do not believe the people should have any control or influence. THEY, they who are so much more wise and learned in the knowledge of sound business practice and economics, they will control everything. They do not believe in economic freedom, opportunity, strong economy, private enterprise, low taxes, or small government. That is why the recession never went away. It’s still here, regardless of what people say. And regardless from people say, Obama has done a HORRIBLE job of improving this economy. He has made it WORSE.
