It seems that a pillar of the Obamagenda is the redistribution of wealth. To be fair, I admit he warned us of this during his campaign. However, as one who has worked all his life to earn a living, I find this concept abhorrent. I consider myself to be in good company in this matter. Thomas Jefferson himself observed: “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” That, my friends, is just common sense.
However, if Mr. Obama would confiscate what I have earned to give to others of his choosing, I beseech him to refrain from the ruse of first running the seized funds through huge socialist, government-run programs. There, of course, bureaucrats, legislators, politicians, insiders and just plain thieves each siphon off their chunk leaving the remainder to to be sifted through the inefficiencies inherent in any government run program. The result is that the supposed beneficiaries of Mr. Obama’s generosity receive only the dross that dribbles out the other end and I am left wondering why I work so hard.
Skip the pitiful attempt to legitimize this armed robbery by forced taxation! Give them the grass Mr. President, not the horse crap that results when you process the grass through the government horse!
Why ruin the economy of a perfectly good nation and condemn it to the historical scrap heap of failed socialist states a few decades hence?
Just give ‘em the flippin’ grass!
