Obama’s Plan to Spread the Wealth

September 28, 2009

When Barack Obama told Joe the Plumber he planned to “spread the wealth around,” many people didn’t realize he was not talking about spreading the wealth only of the super-rich. Now that Obama is elected, he is moving rapidly to expand welfare handouts for non-taxpayers, running up a tremendous national debt that will inevitably lead to higher taxes on the Middle Class.

The story continues …..

    Does this sound familiar?
    In 1998, when the notorious Socialist Hugo Chavez was campaigning to be president of Venezuela, he was short thousands of votes to win. So Chavez promised that if elected, his government would help the poor, disadvantaged and unemployed like no government before. Previously the Venezuelan poor did not largely vote. So Chavez promised the poor, that if elected President, he would spend billions on welfare and other social-programs to help Venezuelans. Chavez said government could pay for these programs by taxing high income Venezuelans and businesses. Chavez came from behind to win the Venezuelan Presidential election only after huge numbers of poor that normally didn’t vote, voted for him. Despite Chavez nationalizing banks, private land and businesses to pay for socialist programs, the Venezuelan Government is in serious economic trouble; increasingly Citizens demonstrate and riot in the streets.

    Likewise in 2008, when Obama was running for President, he offered promises of welfare and entitlements to poor Americans that mirrored Huge Chavez’. And like Pres. Hugo Chavez, Obama intends to strip productive Citizens (Americans) of their assets via new taxes to pay for Socialist handouts and the huge interests on unabated government deficit spending. Obama’s accumulating deficits will at some point destroy America’s ability to sustain sufficient military defense. But Obama did keep his word when he told Joe the Plumber he would “level the playing field” for the people; apparently that meant Obama turning Americans into beggars, setting the stage for millions of Americans to accept a hybrid form of Marxism. Obama has been relentless to force businesses to pay unaffordable forced health insurance costs, higher and new taxes and meet regulations that will inhibit investment and hiring new employees for decades. Obama like other Marxists appears to believe bankrupting the middle class will transfer wealth to the workers. That only works in short term; workers can’t work for bankrupt employers. Obama’s current economic polices if not stopped, will create vast unemployment and will destroy most Americans’ retirement forcing millions of Americans onto the streets to compete with 12 million illegal immigrants.

    Is Obama in the White House any less a political and national security threat to American Freedom, than the Reds and Fascists governments in other countries, Americans found necessary to defeat?
