Anyone who is sober with a scintilla of common sense should be able to recognize how the Progressive-Liberals make sure the poor people stay poor. It is sad that the Obama administration has constantly utilized income inequality to incite hate from the poor for those who can actually lift them out of poverty. The government does not create jobs for the poor, the private sector is the only hope for them to escape poverty.
The media fosters the hate campaigns instead of showing the poor what people endure being poor in other countries that control every aspect of their lives. I doubt poor Americans would be happy living in Russia, Cuba and most of African countries. Our government and the unionization of government employees has virtually destroyed our ability to make anything in America today. If our poor people were in China, where most everything we buy is made, they would still be poor. They would be working if they wanted to eat as the Chinese government does not shower the poor people with “Obama Money”.
As more foreign companies buy American industries and property while we squander our wealth, the “Obama Money Machine” will eventually be unable to borrow more from China to buy paper or ink. They will own us someday. Spending more to pay people to not work can’t last forever regardless of the propaganda espoused by Obama and our leaderless Congress.
Wake up America, even a moron can see that we live in a world where China has accomplished tremendous economic growth. China did not do this by printing more money and placing over 40% of their people on welfare. China changed century old policies and utilized the same capitalistic policies that made America a world superpower.
At the same time we have watched the Progressive-Liberals legislate, regulate and gain more central government power. The have hoodwinked the poor, the weak and the women in believing centralized government power, like the Chinese, is far better for everyone than our Constitution. We are now embracing the same century old policies that will have our poor people living like the hundreds of millions of Chinese living in huts on less than a dollar a day.
What is wrong with income inequality between someone with rare skills who works 70 hours a week and an unskilled part time worker? Even the Progressive-Liberals who scream obsessively about income inequality actually live their lives a lot more like there should be a difference. Why don’t our Congressmen, athletes, government employees, university professors, Hollywood celebrities, Barack Obama, or Al Gore agree to work for $20 an hour? This would show solidarity and sharing with the poor?
Just like people who busted their butts and saved for the future, they all believe they deserve their money. The difference is they espouse that only “other people” should have more of their money taken away for the common good. If a CEO should have his pay limited, why shouldn’t they make $20 an hour? Obama screams that fast food workers are vitally important to the economy, why doesn’t he reduce his salary to the point where he only makes as much as they do? If Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid really believe in fighting for income inequality, why don’t they refuse to make more than the guy who spends 8 hours a day saying, “Welcome to Wal-Mart?”
When I was a boy during the Great Depression, more than 60% of Americans were living below the poverty line. Democrats scream when people like me point out that more than 80% of poor Americans have cell phones, televisions
and refrigerators while “most Americans living below the official poverty line also own a motor vehicle and have more living space than the average European. They ignore the fact that almost half of the world’s population still lives on less than $2.50 a day. If life is so bad in America why do so many immigrants still want to come to America? To be free.
Now Obama and the Democrats are tearful because the Conservatives oppose raising our government mandated minimum wage. What they will not admit is it is a fact that this reduces jobs and puts more people on welfare. The government does force businesses to pay people more than they can afford. This results in hiring better quality people, replacing the jobs with automation, moving overseas or by looking for opportunities to get rid of the positions entirely. It appears that the Democrats desire to put as many young, unskilled single mothers and the poor out of work as possible. The more voters they can get on welfare they know they will vote their hunger rather than progress.
Making the people more comfortable is not encouraging them to succeed. No one should have goals to make a living working at a fast food business. The longer you work at an entry level job waiting for a raise in the minimum wage, you are a failure to family, society and yourself. Redistribution of other people’s income ultimately brings everyone down, especially the poor Americans who should lose faith in themselves when they become dependent on welfare.
We must make the economy stronger. We need to reduce the size of government, reduce taxes, and remove unnecessary regulations. This a proven solution that has worked time and time again.
The more the government focuses on income inequality, the harder it is to get ahead. You can see this very clearly with Obamacare, where a few people are getting subsidized care, while tens of millions more are losing their health care and paying considerably more to make up for it.
Democrats are pushing companies like Wal-Mart to substantially increase its employee’s wages. They ignore the fact that all the poor Americans who shop at discount places will have to spend more of their limited incomes to pay for it. They then increase their welfare to buy their votes. They dangle the myth that it provides the Wal-Mart employees a chance to join the middle class. In truth it means they can pay more taxes to subsidize the poor. The more money we spend “helping” the poor, the harder we ultimately make it for those very same people to ever permanently escape poverty and live the American Dream.
Democrats ignore the real causes of poverty. Poverty in America is not the fault of greed, the rich, racism, America being “unfair,” or any of the other excuses that Liberals shout. The truth is that if you stay poor in America, it’s usually because you believed the Democrats who must keep you poor by buying your votes.
Democrats just keep lying to destitute poor Americans and telling them that the rich became wealthy by stealing their money. What money did they have to steal? If we had any leadership in America they would tell all of the people the truth that should make some poor Americans feel bad. I really feel that survival on welfare, Obama money and cell phones, food stamps and living in a housing projects is not what any American wants, especially the poor who are already there.
Vote for freedom from the enemy, our current American government is more dangerous than all of the extremists alive and China.
“God Bless Wal-Mart”.
