“Obama – why stupid people shouldn’t vote”
Ignorance vs. stupidity: Ignorance is a lack of knowledge; stupidity is an inability to learn. (e.g. Not knowing a fact like the date on which George Washington was born is ignorance. This is easily remedied by learning the date. Stupidity is not knowing the answer even after your ignorance is remedied.)
Do you know why is it that twice as many young people are liberals than old people, and by the time they grow old half of them will become conservatives? Most Americans believe falsehoods that have been propagated by those in government who wish to deceive them into believing that government is the solution to their problems. America has become the richest nation in the world by giving people the freedom to pursue their own fortunes under the protection of a benevolent government that the people controlled.
But over the last century people have been duped and seduced into believing that their prosperity comes from government and not from themselves, thereby creating a class of people who are ignorant, lazy, and greedy that is known as Democrats. Rather than teaching people that education, hard work, and dedication lead to prosperity, Democrats tell people that those who become rich do so by stealing from them. “Social justice” and “Income inequality” are their battle cries and their newfound ideology is the same socialism that America defeated around the world in the 20th century.
But young, uneducated simpletons know nothing of the world before they were born. They only know what they see today, and they see an America foundering in the throes of economic chaos. They don’t understanding that the Democrats they elected because of their rainbow promises of “hope and change” are the architects of that chaos.
“Liberalism is born of ignorance and bred on immorality.” – Dustin Koellhoffer
The TEA Party came into being in 2009 when Democrats took total control of the government. With a Supermajority there was no law they could not pass while Republicans stood by helplessly and watched. The GOP could do nothing other than whine as Democrats passed a budget with a $1.6 trillion dollar deficit and a new entitlement law that is a tax monstrosity called ObamaCare.
Prior to that, Democrats and their liberal media spent years telling the people that the economy of Republicans under President Bush was making rich people richer, poor people poorer, stealing taxpayer’s money, and waging wars on innocent people. When American’s were finally propagandized to the point of electing Democrats to control Congress in 2006, they didn’t understand that Congress makes the laws that control the economy while the president’s job is to implement it. So when Democrats tripled the deficit and made new taxes and regulations that drove the economy down, they blamed the president as their figurehead scapegoat claiming it was the doing of the Republicans.
When Barack Obama told them that the trickle-down economics of Republicans along with “predatory lending” was the cause rather than the Democrat mortgage laws that put a gun to lender’s heads, they knew nothing about what was hurting them but what they were told. Even FOX’s Bill O’Reilly said that “banks acted like gangsters” in selling worthless paper on the stock market. But that wasn’t the banks making that happen, but Democrats who gave them permission to sell their bad loans so they wouldn’t go bankrupt when the economy tanked and lendees defaulted on their excessive loans. The young are not even aware that President Obama has reinstated those same practices that will eventually lead to another collapse in the future.
Since taking power, Democrats have seized control of the mortgage industry, college loans, car manufacturing, and now the entire medical industry. But again the young are unaware because they are put into the hands of Obama’s cronies that he says are part of the private sector. In socialist dictatorships, it is always friends of the rulers who prosper the most.
“In socialism the powerful become rich, and in capitalism the rich become powerful.” – Rush Limbaugh
In the last few years Washington, D.C. has risen to become the wealthiest region in the nation surpassing several other regions to be the undisputed king as Democrats gather America’s wealth unto themselves. Profits, they say, are corporate greed and belong to the people by way of the state. So Obama steals from the rich, gives a piece of it to the poor to buy their votes, and America’s job market languishes because the money that would grow companies is instead being siphoned off by the government.
To distract people from this, propagandists keep the people’s attention on something other than the hand that is picking their pockets. A number of lies are being propagated as the cause, and ignorant Americans are being fooled into believing them. All the evils Obama says Republicans are guilty of are the evils of which Democrats are guilty. But people believe what the president tells them more than what anyone else says, even when he lies to their faces.
ObamaCare was supposed to insure the uninsured. Instead, those people are still uninsured and millions more are being kicked out of their insurance to be forced into ObamaCare that Democrats claim is better for them.
Propaganda – using false and misleading information to fool people into believing a lie such as:
“Bill Clinton gave us a balanced budget and Republicans under Bush wasted it to grow the debt”
Democrats in control of congress had been living large on pork deficit spending since Nixon. Bill Clinton refused to sign the balanced budget presented to him by Newt Gingrich and the Republican controlled congress, the first since the last time Republicans controlled congress in the fifties. Gingrich shut down the government, which he could do because Republicans controlled both the House and the Senate. This was not a partial shutdown like 2013, but a full shut down with the exception of military and essential services like Social Security. But Democrats attempt to rewrite history for the ignorant young because they don’t understand how America’s government operates, they only know who is president. So when Clinton says he balanced the budget, they stupidly believe him.
When George W. Bush became president, the chaos caused by Al Gore’s challenge and manipulation of vote counting in Florida caused economic chaos as businesses wondered which party would control the presidency and thereby influence the economy with their policies. The attack on 9-11 caused a major economic disaster as a trillion dollars of GDP was lost sending the economy into recession. The nation was at war and war costs money. But rather than raise taxes to pay for war, Bush lowered taxes to help the economy recover and paid for the wars through deficit spending. The economy grew along with the national debt, but people had jobs.
“Obama needs deficit spending in the trillions to pay for ‘two wars that weren’t paid for’ and save the economy that was ruined by trickle-down economics.”
Obama did not inherit trillion dollar deficits from President Bush, but from the Democrat Congress of which he was a part. Pelosi withheld the last budget from Bush because he refused to sign off on a $1.6 trillion dollars in borrowing to spend on things that economists said would not help the economy. Afterwards, Obama spent trillions more in deficits without a congressional budget in violation of the law.
Obama’s economy has no more been paid for than Bush’s wars. Where the debt increased $4 trillion in eight years under Bush, Obama has added $7 trillion in five years and has guaranteed $2 trillion more in the next two, with the last year up for grabs to see if he can make it $10-$12 trillion in his eight years. What does the economy show for this waste? There are still ten million fewer people working today than when Bush was president and Obama still blames him even though Democrats have run the economy since 2007.
Conservatives have taken the brunt of Obama’s scapegoating blame game. He has successfully duped ignorant Americans into believing conservatism and the TEA Party are the cause of their ills. This is so reminiscent of 1930s Germany that the resemblance cannot be missed, but ignorant people know about as much of Hitler’s rise to power as they know of what the Speaker of the House does.
Here are a number of falsehoods that most people believe about the TEA Party;
“TEA Party people are racists who don’t like seeing a black man in the White House.”
Liberals say the TEA Party is the new KKK and their only objection to Obama is that he is black because they are racists. If there were any truth to that, then the TEA Party would have been formed during the election and not after Obama signed his first trillion dollar deficit budget. If there were any truth to that, then men like business genius Herman Cain, noble warrior Col. Allen West, and brilliant neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson would not only be incapable of being favorites, but would not be allowed to be members of the TEA Party.
“The TEA Party shutdown the government and hurt the economy.”
The last federal budget signed into law was the Bush budget for 2009 that was signed by Obama. For fiscal years 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 no federal budget was signed into law, while Obama and the Democrat Senate illegally continued running up trillion dollar deficits without publishing to the people where they were spending that money. Following the sequester cuts in 2013 that reduced the federal deficit by a fraction, Obama decided to force Republicans to sign on to his deficits to fund ObamaCare.
Conservatives of the TEA Party would have none of it and drafted a budget without funding Obama’s tax monster. There was no reason for Obama to not ignore them and continue running the government without a budget, but ObamaCare was rolling out and he needed a distraction from what he knew was coming. As millions were having their insurance policies cancelled and no one was able to use what should have been an easily prepared simple website, Obama shut down the government and blamed the TEA Party.
It wasn’t a full shut down, but a 30% shut down of the most essential services like military pay and Social Security checks that would hurt the people the most while congressional aides continued collecting their paychecks. To add insult to injury, he closed national parks and erected barricades around monuments on the National Mall where it was TEA Party members that went to the aid of WWII veterans to thrown down the barricades so they could tour their memorial. But the liberal media drowned out their voices and blamed them for the shut down and millions of people bought it. TEA Party approval fell from 33% to 20%.
“Rightwing extremists of the TEA Party are hateful, irrational, and refuse to compromise with reasonable people in government.”
The so-called “rightwing extremists” are people who believe that government should serve the people and not tax them to excess as they are “taxed enough already.” These “extremists” believe government taking money from one person and giving it to someone else is nothing less than legalized theft. These “extremists” believe the government should operate on a balanced budget through taxes only for what is necessary to protect the people from foreign enemies and domestic criminals. These “extremists” believe the tax code should be fair and equitable and not twisted to give allow those in government to give tax credits or loopholes to their friends and penalties against their political enemies.
When the righteous become “extremists,” then you know that America has degenerated into a nation where the greedy rule. The Left believes that money is the root of evil, while the Right knows that it is the love of money that is the root of evil. Making a profit is not greedy businessmen stealing from people, but the most basic of economic necessities for business to have enough money to grow and create more jobs.
Government does not create jobs because government has no money until it taxes it away from the people. Only the truly stupid believe that unemployment benefits creates jobs as the government has been proven to tax away four times what they dole out in benefits. For every person living on welfare and unemployment benefits, two people have lost their jobs because government sucked taxes out of the businesses for which they worked.
America is in decline, and the people re-elected those who are leading her into that decline. Obama vowed to fundamentally transform the United States, but what he promised on the campaign trail is opposite of the policies that he institutes. Offshore oil drilling and coal production is being shut down while money taxed from them is being given to green energy companies that are going bankrupt.
So long as liberals and moderates that believe taxes are there for them to decide who gets government aid are running the country, America will continue to decline and slide into bankruptcy. When that happens, the world will go up in flames just as it did after Democrats did the same thing in the 1930s. By acting ignorantly and being led by liars, America’s youth are being suckered into yet another failed socialist experiment by the people who are acquiring vast wealth at their expense.
