The Election and Taxes

In an interview with Barak Obama, Bill O’Reilly got the Democratic candidate for President to admit that part of his economic plan was to give a tax cut to 95% of Americans. The more he talked about it the more he revealed that what it really would be is income redistribution, a.k.a. Socialism, a.k.a. scourge of the Earth, a.k.a. one of the most wicked schemes man has ever devised (Communism is the other).

His plan is to give tax refunds to lower and middle class families and make up the difference by raising taxes on upper eschalon, the other five percent, the wealthiest people. However there are 40% of Americans who pay no income tax at all. Yet they will get a check. That is welfare, not a tax cut. And just who are those rich people? Many, many of them are small business owners who provide jobs and so the question becomes how does Obama expect to create jobs all the while punishing those who create jobs?

Liberals and people in general who just don’t “get” capitalism may call me a butt-kisser, a greedhead wannabe, a tool of the rich, or a right-wing kool-aid drinker because I defend the wealthy and their right to their wealth. But I defend my own right to my wealth. I defend Barack Obama’s right to his wealth. I am a Christian and I hate injustice. I believe that righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people. I will not stand for inequality and this attempt by the likes of Obama to strip the wealthy of what is rightfully theirs is unfair. So what if “Lord knows they can afford it”!? It is not right. Many of the wealthy folks you see around you came from nothing. But rather than despise the rich, they worked hard to join them and now politicians want to punish them for that. That seems to be the only cultural sphere in which hard work, determination and dedication are punished. How twisted!

Now there are folks who are in the same economic stratus as me and they support Obama’s philosophy. Yet at the same time they are striving all the time to become one of the rich. I mean, why else should one attempt to get promotions and raises and more education? Is it not to earn more and to be a good steward with what one has been given (whether it be brains or experience)? As I get older and gain experience, I am certain that my income and standard of living will increase. The same can be said of my middle-class brethren. If I join the “stick-it-to-the-rich” crowd, what would happen if I become one of the so-called rich? A house divided against itself can not stand.

    Good post. Going by one definition that I heard attributed to Obama, my parents fall into the “wealthy” category. These Americans, according to Biden, should want to be “patriotic” and give more of their money to the 40% who don’t pay any taxes. But I really wouldn’t call them wealthy. My dad has worked 60-80 hour weeks for the last 30-some years. He deserved to keep what he earns (and then some). All Obama’s plan will do is discourage what little motivation our generation has when it comes to working hard and pursuing a higher education.

    Seriously, what country are we moving to if he gets elected? I’m thinking Island living is the life for me! Jamaica-me crazy!

    Marxism at it’s finest. I’m glad someone else sees his plan for what it is. I know a lot of people that are voting for him and tell me I should too. When I say, “give me a good reason and I might think about it”, the only responses I’ve gotten are “he’s charismatic” and “he seems like he might know what he’s talking about.” So I’m not entirely convinced people are getting past his charisma and really listening to the man himself. I bet if you put his ideas on paper (without people knowing it was him) they would be appalled.
