Is The Push for “Economic Equality” Just Liberal Guilt?

If liberals are really interested in taking from the rich and giving to the poor, why doesn’t Obama give the rumored multi-million dollar advance on his new book to the citizens of Detroit to help them and their bankrupt city out?  Why doesn’t George Clooney sell his Lake Como mansion and distribute the proceeds to poor residents of Baltimore and Miami?  Why don’t we take out a home equity loan on all the mansions of liberals living in Beverly Hills and give that money to the poor Indians and Eskimos in America?  In fact if justice is what liberals want, Liberals would hand their California property over to the Indians who occupied that land in the first place.  And what about Rosa DeLauro’s and Robert Redford’s vast investments?  These holdings could be liquidated and the proceeds distributed to the needy.  But of course, liberals only feel good when they are giving other people’s money away, so they will object to giving up their own vast wealth.

But even if we used all of the millions of dollars that would result from the above efforts, we know that just giving money to the poor would only generate quick and very temporary relief to those without jobs, and that the poverty would soon return to their lives, only worse for the brief surge of spending the recipients experienced.  The issue is that people generate wealth and independence through work, but Obamacare, along with the hundreds of job-destroying regulations issued each year by Obama’s EPA, are depriving Americans of the jobs they need.  And the infinite extension of unemployment benefits only make the situation worse.  What the unemployed don’t need is long-term handouts, and they don’t need to be made to feel resentful of working people with jobs and actual earned incomes.  The effort at forced economic equity is directly out of the Communist Manifesto and can only be successful with fascist, totalitarian control over the population, and these efforts must stop!

The nation’s current state of horrible economic affairs originated in the Clinton administration when the CEOs of the Savings and Loan companies were lectured for their lack of home loans to people with bad or no credit history, and they were required to give such loans to those who had proven they couldn’t afford them, or put up with harassment from the government for not bowing down to the great Clinton administration’s demands.  This arm-twisting then developed into the sub-prime loan, then to the bundling of bad loans and eventually caused the real estate crash, which was caused directly by government meddling in the private economy.  Since liberals caused the current sad state of affairs in America I’d like to see them use their own money to support the poor, not use public money.

In order to demonstrate the lying insincerity of Barack Insane Obama, think back a couple of years to an event in Oklahoma (if I recall the exact location correctly) where our young president made a big deal of insisting that priority be given to approval for the Key Stone pipeline (which approval would very quickly generate thousands of high-paying jobs), and he said that he would place a priority on approval at the federal level.  The project, now years later, is still waiting for approval, and it’s not Oklahoma that is the hold-up.  Just like Obama’s frequently repeated lying claims of focusing on the economy and job creation “like a laser”, the hold-up is with the Obama administration, and with Obama his lying self. Our idiot president doesn’t want job creation, he wants everyone depending on government handouts and voting democrat to assure the stream of government goodies, and Washington is making those without jobs feel resentful of those who have jobs and are able to save and invest and generate wealth for their families.

I’d like to quickly revisit the rumor that Obama has signed a multi-million dollar deal for a new book. Who in their right mind would buy a book written by a known and repeated liar like Obama?  Only fools and liberal dunces will buy this book.

Repeal Obamacare and restore sanity to America once more!
