Think about what it is that President Barack Obama and his minions are doing right now.
Think about it.
The president is making it more and more difficult for small businesses to succeed, or even start up, due to more and more federal regulations that seem to pour forth from D.C. like a raging river. Yet the president calls for ever more regulations and taxes. As a matter of fact, regulatory costs under the Obama Administration are the highest for any sitting president in U.S. history.
Obamacare will not fully kick-in until 2014, but already the private sector is witnessing many businesses cutting back their employees’ full-time hours to under 30 hours a week, in order to comply with the stifling and job-killing universal healthcare law. So, many workers are having to work multiple part-time jobs, if they can find them.
But the president insists that investment (more spending)—and we’re talking massive, unrestrained federal spending here—in infrastructure (see China’s “ghost cities”) and the workers (proletariat) is a good thing. In order to pay for all this, insists the president, we’ll need to generate more revenue for a federal government that is approaching a size larger than the entire private sector.
There is no spending problem, according to Obama, just a problem with people not “paying their fair share,” despite the fact that the highest earners in the U.S. are taxed the most, via the oppressive graduated and progressive income tax—a Soviet favorite, by the way (see Communist Manifesto); it keeps things fair, so sayeth the radical left.
Well, now we have a serious economic conundrum, do we not? If the federal government wishes more revenue from the private sector, yet the powers-that-be make it harder and harder for businesses to even exist or operate because of crippling regulations, fees and fines, then the very workers the government wishes to tax are unable to generate a taxable income in the first place. And if the private sector fails, then the government will fail as well.
But as we are now seeing in Cyprus, the government would more than likely start confiscating the wealth and riches of its citizens in order to prolong its monstrous crimes of squandering the wealth and riches of its people, then demanding more and more sacrifice from those very people.
In such a scenario, the government might even go so far as to seize private property at gunpoint. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before—quite the contrary. Tyrants dominating and subjugating people ruthlessly seems to be the history of mankind. Of course, mass human suffering leads to conflicts and wars. There are many mighty states and empires forgotten to history—never to rise again … like so much chaff in the wind.
The mental gymnastics one must do to accept the president’s assertions that no spending problem exists, yet more and more revenue is required, is an exercise in Olympic-grade intellectual dishonesty. Why does the government constantly need more revenue if they’re not spending too much? Give me a damn break here, folks!
The president says, “We can’t cut our way to prosperity.” So is the president saying we can tax and borrow our way to prosperity? Is he saying the United States can spend in perpetuity without any budgetary constraints and everything will be just fine?
And let’s be perfectly clear here, as far as our monetary system is concerned (i.e. The Fed), the federal government spends and borrows money that is created out of thin air. That’s why banks fear a “bank run” so much, since banks only hold a fraction of real assets in reserve (fractional reserve banking).
So, if the president and his minions are making it increasingly more difficult for the average American to find work, yet they demand more and more tax revenue from the private sector, which must be provided by the labor of the worker (i.e. individual), then it appears to me that something incredibly diabolical is going on here.
Why would a sitting U.S. president and his political operatives—meaning: Democrats, liberal news media, Hollywood, academia, department of education, department of labor, global elites, etc.—want to wreck our economy and bring down our entire free market system? The answer to me is clear: to bring about a new system sans the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. dollar. One only has to read the writings of the radical leftist academicians who infest our institutions of learning. The social and political scientists that pour forth from our colleges, universities and public schools are conditioned like Pavlov’s Dog to embrace pure statism.
Don’t get mad at me, as some are wont to do, because I’m pointing it out. I’m just the messenger. I didn’t devise the plan of overwhelming the bureaucratic system in order to break it and institute a new one (i.e. “fundamental transformation”), nor would I want to. It was people like George Soros, Noam Chomsky, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Saul Alinsky, Robert Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, Herbert Marcuse, Gore Vidal, Georg Hegel, Georg Lukacs, Antonio Gramsci, Karl Marx, Maximilien de Robespierre, and a plethora of other Marxist theoreticians and thugs, who conjured up the plan to turn a society they wish to conquer inside out, and from within—preferably from the bottom-up (grassroots) and top-down (federal government), as is the case now. One only need read their writings and observe their actions to confirm what I’m writing is true.
Yes. Barack Obama and crew would just love to break our so-called capitalistic economic system; it’s been their goal all along. Unfortunately, they’ve almost arrived at their predetermined end. Not too much longer, and the whole stinkin’ house of cards is going to come crashing down. And Obama and his minions will be sitting atop the whole pile of smoking ruins in total control.
As for the private citizen? Well, there won’t be any private citizens, for the left wishes to “smash the cult of individuality.” That’s what good community agitators do. No. You will be a worker then—a worker for the state; and you will pay for the privilege to live and work within the state, despite the fact that the state exists in the very land our forebears conquered, for every land on the earth has been conquered by somebody. Now, Obama and crew wish to conquer and rule America, and fundamentally transform it into a living hell of sameness and abject poverty.
Please prove me wrong, America. I have never wanted to be so wrong in all my life. But it is what it is.
Of course, it depends on what the definition of is is.
Think about it.
