We're truly witnessing political history happen before our very eyes. Historically, a Democratic President running for re-election would attempt to walk a fine line, placating his base on the left while attempting somewhat to appear capitalistic to the nation's right and center. Slick Willie was a master of the art and it worked for him. The logic, from a Democrats point-of-view, was to get as much of the leftwing base to vote as possible while spintering off a portion of independents and conservatives in order to achieve a winning margin. Historically, Democrats have always had to admit that national elections could not be won with support only coming from the left.
President Barrack Obama is a radical departure from that approach and appears to have a game plan to win with nearly all of his support coming from the left. How is this possible when poll after poll indicate that barely 20% of the nation's population admit to being liberal? Quite simply, the administration, using hard-earned tax-payer dollars as well as billions in borrowed money, is on a binge to "buy" liberals. By increasing the number of Americans on food stamps, social security disability, and lengthy unemployment compensation, Obama has added to the number of citizens on the public dole tremendously.
Just when it seemed the Obama administration couldn't do anything more to drive the country toward socialism, we now learn that the regime has basically removed the work requirement attached to welfare, reversing a landmark law passed in 1996 in a bi-partisan effort between the Gingrich led House of Representitives and the Clinton White House. Tax payers all over the country are now or will be shocked by such a blatant "in-your-face" act, never believing any President, regardless of party, would pull such a stunt.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the Obama regime could care less what tax payers think or even how they vote. Their plan is to increase rapidly the number of Americans dependent on government and convince them their opponents, if elected, will shut off the spicket. The GOP house is tauting a 16 billion dollar cut in the food stamp budget (I'll admit that before now I didn't know the entire Food Stamp budget was that huge). Look for the Obama administration and the Dems in the Senate to scream like stuck pigs over this, the old tried and true "GOP taking food out of children's mouths" and "GOP wanting Grandma to eat dog food" BS.
The Obama regime, which cut its' teeth on the corrupt politics of Chicago, has as its' biggest challenge just getting all these free-loaders to get out and vote, not an easy task as these are the type of people who won't take the initiative to go vote any more than the most of them won't go out and seek work. The fact that this direction toward socialism is rapidly sending the nation into economic doom matters little to Obama and his marxist followers. After all, the excrement won't likely hit the fan before he leaves office and he has shown little concern for the nation's overall financial health anyway. There will still be funding for his golf outings and his wife's extravagant vacation junkettes.
This election is about much more than whether we have Obama or Romney. Americans must make a decision about what kind of country America will be, a capitalistic free enterprise nation or a socialist country. It's going to be a contest at the ballot box between the makers and the takers, between those who pay taxes and those who don't. Sadly, some of the tax-payers will be misguided enough to actually vote for socialism, a number that when added to a liberal coalition of feminists, environmentalists, public unionists, welfare/food stamp recipients, and fraudulent illegals, may give Obama the numbers he needs to win.
How any tax payer, christian, and/or patriot could possibly vote for the Democratic Party is just shocking to me. We had best stop arguing among ourselves about whether Romney is conservative enough and pull together to defeat this regime. Otherwise, we may not have the liberty in the near future to argue at all. From www.jamesherbertharrison.com/blog
