So now, opposing higher taxes and a socialist government makes you SELFISH! So says Obama:
The reason that we want to do this, change our tax code, is not because I have anything against the rich, Obama said in Sarasota, Florida, yesterday. I love rich people! I want all of you to be rich. Go for it. That’s the America dream, that’s the American way, that’s terrific.
The point is, though, that and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses buy tramadol selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as president of the United States of America.
John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic, Obama continued. You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness.
So wanting to decide what you get to do with your own money makes you selfish?
Look, I get the point Obamas making. We need to help out our neighbors. No one disagrees with that. The issue here is how. According to Obama, and most liberals, the government must be the one who does all of the helping and they do that by taking money from other citizens ambien uk buy ambien online canada buy ambien mexico . The notion that Americans (the most generous people on the planet) could possibly be charitable without coercion is a visit us one to Obama.
The other issue here is that, yet again, Obama is making wants into rights. Sure, itd be nice if everyone could go to college. Sure, itd be nice if everyone had affordable healthcare. Sure, itd be nice if everyone was wealthy. But its just not reality, and those things are not rights. No one has a right to affordable healthcare, or college tuition, or more money. I know liberals are going to be beating their tiny fists against computer screens at that statement, but too bad. It used to be that in the United States it was understood that you had to work hard in order to get those things, but now, thanks to liberalism, theyre just expected. Everyone has the right to college tuition. Everyone has the right to healthcare.
You know what? I dont have insurance right now. My employer couldnt afford to provide it anymore (something Im sure well see more of with an Obama presidency). If I were a liberal, Id probably be moaning and crying to a dozen or so TV stations and whining for someone to give me my right to healthcare. But, I completely understand that I have no right to healthcare. It is my responsibility to either pay for my own insurance or to find an employer who can provide it. It is not the governments responsibility, and it isnt my employers. My healthcare is my responsibility, and no one elses. I know, I know.. thats a psychotic thing to think, that Im responsible for myself, but there you have it.
Opposing big government does not make someone selfish, and for Obama to insinuate that shows a lot about his mentality and what kind of America we can look forward to if he wins. Gone will be the America of enterprising hard workers. Why bother, when the government will do everything for you?
