In 2008 Democrat Barack Hussein Obama ran a campaign that smacked of class warfare propaganda. He reached out to the poor, the uneducated, the stupid, and the lazy. He told them that their problems were not their own fault – instead they were victims of a corrupt system that unfairly rewarded the rich and powerful. He promised change they could believe in.
Seven years later, after almost two terms of Democrat policies in the White House, Hillary Clinton is using the exact same tactics. Her heart is bleeding for the working poor. She feels their pain. She says it’s just horrible how they work so hard and yet they can’t afford homes, college tuition, and every darn thing their hearts desire. Never mind that her party has been setting national policies since 2008.
It seems she is promising everything from free college to bigger paychecks. She doesn’t seem to explain how it is that she will deliver these wonderful gifts to the victimized potential voter. THIS TIME the candidate will really change the system to benefit the little guy. I guess she’ll somehow force companies to pay more to American workers instead of offshoring to cheaper alternatives.
It seems clear that Hillary Clinton is selling out her former boss and party member. If he succeeded in delivering his campaign promises, the helpless Americans wouldn’t be in such awful predicaments. Clearly Hillary Clinton is saying that our current President failed to deliver on his promises. So she’s making the same promises and hoping that voters are stupid enough to believe the same empty promises again and again.
Let’s hope the voters are smart enough to see through this charade. Let’s hope they remember the rhetoric of 2004. Let’s hope they question why things will somehow be different this time. Let’s hope they are tired of hearing the same old song and dance about changing the system for the little guy.
We’ve heard this one before. Somehow we’ll probably hear it again regardless of who wins in 2016.
There was a time when The US Postal Service was a vital and wonderful service. That time is gone.
Personally, I only get two kinds of mail: junk mail and bills. It wouldn’t bother me a bit if I only received one delivery a week, or even less. FedEx and UPS could surely handle such a schedule. I really don’t need the bills to arrive by mail – I pay them online anyway. I could always print them out if I needed a hard copy, although I don’t know why I would need a paper copy.
Don’t even get me started on junk mail. It goes straight to the trash. If I really want a coupon, I can look online. Surely it would save businesses money if they could end this cycle of junk mail to landfill. Even the most liberal of tree huggers would celebrate the conserving of paper.
It seems like even the poorest folks rural have a smart phone nowadays. Surely we could eliminate the postal service and let for-profit companies and the beloved Internet replace them seamlessly.
Every day we hear stories about American jobs going overseas to cheaper labor. Many foreign workers will give 110% effort for less than $200 per month. The American worker simply can’t compete due to all the government oversight and regulation, including the minimum wage.
That’s why we must free the American worker to compete on the world stage. We must allow the American worker to negotiate his or her own pay without government interference.
We must eliminate the minimum wage. Only then can employers and job creators afford to give jobs to the best darn workers in the world – American Workers.
I’d like to propose a new wrinkle to the tax code: No income taxes at all on those who make more than $1 Million per year – as long as they spend money on a new home, a new luxury car, yacht, private jet, club memberships, or lavish vacations*
Clearly, all of the above activities create jobs for lesser people and laborers. Someone has to maintain those cars. Someone has to clean their hotel rooms. Someone has to cook their meals. Don’t even get me started with all of the jobs created when a new luxury home is built. The possibilities are endless – home builders, designers, landscapers, component builders, and on down the line.
Think of the boon to the economy. Why do we punish these American heroes as well as the lower class workers? Truly this tax plan is a win-win.
Please write your legislators, leaders and the media to promote and support this plan.
God Bless America!
