Just the man for those who don’t
The playwright, George Bernard Shaw, made the observation; “a government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.”
Thus it is that the most traditionally reliable constituency of the Democratic party, the shiftless, lazy, and the indolent, will swarm to the polls this November in support of Barack Hussein Obama.
Citizen of the World Obama, the biggest phenomenon from the South Side of Chicago since Bad Bad Leroy Brown, intends to rewrite the tax code and redistribute the wealth of America away from the producers into the covetous hands of non-producers.
Manifestly, capitalism cannot exist without capital, be it from corporations or investors. The Wall Street Journal has analyzed Mr. Obama’s scheme and reports it will add up to a 39.6 percent personal income tax rate, a 52.2 percent combined payroll tax and income tax, a 28 percent capital gains tax, a 39.6 percent dividends tax and a 55 percent estate tax.
Mr. Obama’s past as a community activist, or, rabble-rousing provocateur, depending upon one’s point of view, is deeply ingrained in his very being. Pandering to the gullible is Mr. Obama’s stock and trade. In Chicago’s South Side, elections that are not won by the rantings of local preachers perpetuating feelings of victimization and fomenting class warfare are won by doling out half-pint bottles of Four Roses to those whose votes are available for a more tangible albeit ephemeral reward.
As recent polls are trending, America is not as easily besotted as those in Mr. Obama’s old neighborhood.
