With Detroit going bankrupt I decided to pull together a variety of topics that all paint a picture. Albeit not a good picture, but one based on facts, and my opinion. The middle class is the enemy of the Tyrant, the Dictator, the Socialist. They must be fooled into thinking their leaders do things for them, care about them, yet what they are told ends up hurting them even more. What do we see in this country? As Obama’s policies & Ideology continues to pound the middle class, we consistently hear speeches from this man about how we must all sacrifice, invest (code for more taxes), spend more money (Stimulus, Son of Stimulas, Obamacare, etc., and from his latest speech, now get ready for even more). As his policies fail one after another he can no longer blame Bush as he did in his first term. So what is a President to do? Blame Congressional Republicans for his failures. The Liberal hear this and falls in line with the propaganda. They jump on the bandwagon and point their fingers at the Republicans like Donald Southerland in the end of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”. As they see their paychecks diminish, their taxes go up, the cost of food rising enormously, gas prices going up and up, and soon Obamacare will kill their financial freedoms, they don’t blame the source, Obama. It’s those hate speech wackos, the Republicans!
As Detroit filed for bankruptcy, even the media, the left wing media, which is just about all media, never blamed the city’s financial woes on the facts of “one party rule” for over 50 years, the Democrats. If America’s nickname is “The Great Experiment”, Detroit’s nickname is certainly “The Great Socialist Experiment”. Tax everyone to death, pensions that could never be paid, Unions killing businesses, etc. All under near 100% Democrat rule. It is happening to California, and many other cities in the USA while “Red” states are enjoying a more prosperous time in our history. Yet no one says it like it is on the news, nor in the administration, and the Lemmings just keep jumping off the cliff following these leaders.
The Middle Class is diminishing at an accelerated rate. When George Bush left the office the amount of people on food stamps were just shy of 32 million. Under Obama it is now 46.7 million. Why? Well, could it be because Democrats like Nancy Pelosi think the more people you have on Food stamps and unemployment, the better it is for the economy? (listen to her here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4t-eycEKXNs ) Also, by keeping more people on food stamps and unemployment it increases the Entitlement society which Democrats just love! One in every 5 people are now on some form of Government entitlement program. In the Farm Bill of recent, Obama said he would veto it if the food stamp earmark was taken out. Yes, people need help, but over 46 million? … and some being illegal aliens! I support in helping those in need, get them on their feet and on a road to being independent, not Serfs to the King.
Under Bush the employment rate was just above 7%, but it must be said that the 7% was a true figure. There was no one that made an unseen percentage by getting their unemployment, then running out, then dropping off the radar without a job. Under Obama the true figure is well above 12% taking these uncounted people into consideration. Young black youths who overwhelmingly voted for Obama have a 14% unemployment rate. If Obama could run for a third term, you bet they would just keep voting for him too.
When Bush was President gas was cheaper, but the Liberals, and Democrats wanted to scream “Off with head!” like the Queen from Alice in Wonderland. Yet under Obama gas now costs more, and where is the complaints from MSNBC, and your Liberal neighbor? I hear crickets only. Also what do we get when gas prices go higher? Your food at the grocery store gets more expensive as it costs more to get it to you.
In Detroit, the population went from 1.8 million down to under 800 thousand people. That is less than half of the population available to pay taxes. When that happened services we take for granted: Trash pickups, number of policemen, etc all go down. The wait for a 911 call in Detroit reached over 50 minutes! With Obamacare, yes, it relates! Companies are already starting to cut back on their employees hours due to if they are under 29 hours, no benefits. In Obamacare, full time work is no longer considered 40 hours. In it, it states full-time is 30 hours. If people are forced to work less hours due to Obamacare, less taxes are collected. We are in for big trouble as this will send shock waves out in many areas of our lives, within our homes, and to all services we now enjoy.
A weak middle class NEEDS government to take care of them, yet with less taxes they are less able to, other than entitlements, a strong middle class doesn’t need entitlements, you collect more taxes, but being Republicans believe in less Government, being independent, prospering, this scares the leftwing politicians. If they don’t need us (Democrats) they won’t vote for us. This is the agenda of the left.
With Morality in the toilet, Government wanting your guns, your money, and your soul the middle class is doomed. It is not the Republicans who love the rich. Take a look at the left wing loons at the IRS, and other government agencies. Spending millions on videos, trips to Hawaii all at the cost of the Middle Class. A term by the way that did not exist until Carl Marx coined the phrase in the Communist Manifesto. Obama’s 100 million dollar trip to Africa, Biden spending 500 thousand dollars for one night in a hotel. These are the Elitists. All the Liberals and Democrats screamed when Governor Christie took a helicopter to his sons soccer game. Albeit it was on his way to a meeting. Yet did you ever hear them complain when Corzine did the same thing…. over 200 times! Double standards. But I digress, this is about the end of the Middle Class, or do I digress? How can the Middle Class ever hope to exist and grow when they don’t call out their own leaders?
Harry Reid wants to raise and collect one trillion dollars in new taxes! The Middle Class is his target. Even if Obama ever succeeded in making the rich pay “Their fare share” of taxes, it affects the middle class. Economics 101 of business. Raise my taxes? Or my company’s taxes? And I won’t pay for it, I will just raise the costs and pass it on down to the middle class. Obama’s energy plan, or attack on the coal industry says it all best. He said, and you can watch it at the next link, “Under my plan energy costs will skyrocket, as the coal companies conform to new regulations the costs will have to be passed on to the consumer” Uhm…. That’s you! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqHL404zhcU
Green energy? Steven Chu, then energy Czar said he would like to see gas prices reach about 9 dollars a gallon to be more inline with country’s in Europe and force people into Green Energy. So let me get this straight, Make it hard on the middle class just so you can rush a technology that isn’t ready yet? GM’s electric cars failed, Windmills fail and cause pollution of it’s own that rivals coal, and don’t get me started on Solyndra! (and the likes).
The middle class is in for more taxes, more bailouts, more unethical vacations by underlings and Obama, and videos by many of the administrations groups… And why not? There is no accountability. No heads rolling, no criminal charges, no Impeachment. Oh that’s right, I forgot, the scandals are all phoney according to Obama, tell that to the families of the fallen in Benghazi, Or the boarder patrol officer that died from the Fast and Furious, or Christine O’Donnell and Romney having their tax records unlawfully released. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, HHS, EPA, NSA, IRS, and so much more can do all the UN-Constitutional behavior they wish, because the left wing media will not hold them accountable, thus the people love them. Hey? I just got my free Obamaphone! Count me in! With one scandal after another? Can you imagine if you just took one, JUST ONE! And if this was a Republican president? He would be on the stand like Ronald Reagan was in the Iran Contra hearings.
With an administration as corrupt as this one is, and with half the middle class defending them, as they see more and more of their money going to the Government they will still hail their chief. That old story of the frog sitting in water as it boils to stupid to jump out. And when all their money is gone? What will they do? Blame it on the Republicans. Obama promised that this would be the most transparent administration in history. Oh and he is ohhhhhhhhhhh so right. You can see right through them all.
Our Middle Class was once the best Middle Class in the world. Now? We rank 27th in the world! Thank you Mr. Obama, maybe you can get us ranked 50th in the world before your second term is over. However, I bet your pushing for over 60th.
