The No. 1 cause of poverty in the world is government. The more power a government has over its people, the poorer they are. America’s prosperity is a product of freedom. You don’t see boatloads of refugees leaving our shores.
In his State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama attacked the people that create wealth and jobs in the private sector with Marxist propaganda. He believes that executives and corporations are evil and wants you to believe that you will be better off if government seizes their wealth. You won’t. If government seizes their wealth, it will eventually seize yours.
The socialist Democratic Party claims that corporations are wasteful. Find a federal agency as efficient and solvent as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Dakota. They are criticized for sending political letters. They didn’t spend $700,000 on entertainment for a conference like the bankrupt Social Security Administration, which can’t afford cost of living increases for seniors. Social Security’s Ponzi scheme is now paying out more than it takes in and the trust fund is spent, but the law prohibits us from taking our business elsewhere.
Democrats claim there is virtue in poverty. They despise Americans who work hard to earn the best possible life for themselves and their family. They consider hard work and personal responsibility “greed.” They claim that those on welfare don’t have a greedy bone in their body and that virtue comes with laziness, irresponsibility and dependence on government.
The Democrats intend to tax, borrow and spend Americans (except the political elite) into a life of righteousness. They plan to transform America into a nation void of capitalism like Haiti and Cuba. Remember, people flee their free government food, housing and health care and risk their lives trying to float here on makeshift boats from these liberal utopias. Many die trying.
If Democrats “fundamentally transform America” (as Obama put it), is there a country left in the world where we can flee to?
