Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm. –James Madison
The Issue: As much as Obama & Co. wants to direct the efforts of American business by appearing to be confident, in-charge leaders who know exactly how things will turn out, it’s all an illusion. No one in this administration has gotten his hands dirty in a private business–big or small (yes, I know there are women involved, too; I hate de-gendering on principle)–and that has put our nation’s economy at risk.
What I Think: Make that, what lots of Americans have come to believe!
His polished demeanor and charismatic rhetoric notwithstanding, Barack Obama is dangerous to American business. In grooming this narcissistic community organizer for a presidential run, master-manipulator George Soros had one sinister goal: To profit by advancing the Left’s redistributionist agenda–in effect, a way for America’s Have-Nots to extort Big Bucks from the Haves—while the absurdly criminal Soros works his Big-Money cons on the sidelines. Pretty clever, no?
Not So Fast: This is Still America! You cannot believe New World socialism is good and still be taken seriously by a free people. If we follow the socialist lead of Soros/Obama and redistribute enough wealth long enough, eventually it will all be gone! Wealth has to come from somewhere. That’s why socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried—except at the end of a gun.
Let’s Get Back to Economics 101. Remember the difference between creating wealth and making money? Making something that was not there before creates wealth. Only a few industries do that–farming, construction, manufacturing and mineral extraction come to mind. But so do small businesses run by you Freestyle Entrepreneurs out there! Other businesses–banking, insurance, Wall Street trading and lawyers–make their money by shuffling other people’s cash around.
We need to prop up those industries and businesses that actually create wealth, as opposed to those that thrive by making money. That’s why merely “creating jobs” is of no real value. After all, jobs can be anywhere, especially in an increasingly large and rapacious government…to become even larger if Mr. Obama’s government-run healthcare scheme ever comes to pass.
No! We must strengthen our key wealth-producing industries and businesses, and then get out of their way. But first, we need to get Barack Obama and his crew of anti-capitalist, anti-American New World socialists out of our way!
