The New Raw Deal

Communism Rewards Those Who Don't Work

Leading our brave troops into a planned failure in Iraq and now crippling their ability to fight in Afghanistan, Obama is truly leading in the ol' Franklin style. However his need for failure does not simply persist in his hatred for our military alone; FDR and Obama both wanted failure at home too. That is why Franklin passed his "New Deal" legislation and why Obama will not renew President George W. Bush's tax cuts.
-
The "New Deal" was designed to grow government and government alone. Its "incentives" were put in place to shrink the free market and punish those who actually worked for a living. Instead of allowing people to keep more of what they earn and pay less in taxes (a strategy that has proven to increase tax revenue do to fact that people work harder and longer when taxed less) FDR pushed for higher taxes... punitive taxes. As a direct result of his designed failure, FDR extended the "Great Depression" so that his government could grow without impediment.
-
In exactly the same way FDR did, Obama is trying to prologue the current recession (one his party engineered) and even possibly deepen it. Passing ObamaCare was the current despot's way of raising taxes while increasing the dependency of the people upon the government. This also tightens the grip of the Democrat's stranglehold on the free market's throat. FDR would have truly been proud.
-
“I’m here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month. … We caught a lot of bad breaks on the way down. We’re going to catch a few good breaks because of good planning on the way up.” -Vice President Joe Biden, in Pennsylvania.
-
We all know that the "Summer of Recovery" has failed. Now that Labour Day is here Obama can no longer hide behind his planned Summer of Recession and the fact that unemployment continues to tick upward. In fact it seems to be a Democrat trend to allow the working class to shrink during their terms in office. FDR did it, so Obama continues the tradition. Unemployed workers tend to draw government benefits, benefits that Obama made sure will last them at least two more years.
-
Increasing the benefits of those who either refuse to work or cannot find work creates the incentive to keep their unemployed status. Without the drive to supplement their own income through their own work, people tend not to do just that. And this is exactly what Obama has planned on.
-
Meanwhile we are still faced with the pending doom of a record setting tax hike this coming spring. This said tax hike is the direct result of Obama's administration's refusal to renew the Bush tax cuts. Thus people will soon have even less money to spend because even more of their pay checks will be going into the government's ever shrinking pool of tax dollars. And yet Obama continues to raise taxes by spending more money on useless pogroms (programs) intended to increase the dependency of the American people upon Obama's government.
-
To save face the "upper crust" has come out swinging with somewhat unapologetic explanations for their failures in the past two years.
-
“The current recession has been fundamentally different from other postwar recessions. … Precisely because such severe financial shocks have been rare, there were no reliable estimates of the likely impact. To this day, economists don’t fully understand why firms cut production as much as they did, and why they cut labor so much more than they normally would, given the decline in output.” -Christina Romer, Chair to Obama's Council of Economic Advisers. Wednesday, September 1st 2010.
-
She fails to point out that most economist are willing to admit that much of Wall Street is preparing for deeper losses in 2011. She also fails to admit that much of Main Street is preparing to bat down the hatches for the coming depression they foresee in the coming years.
-
"It is clear that the Recovery Act has played a large role in the turnaround in GDP and employment. In a report that Jared Bernstein and I issued during the transition, we estimated that by the end of 2010, a stimulus package like the Recovery Act would raise real GDP by about 3½ percent and employment by about 3½ million jobs, relative to what otherwise would have occurred…. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, CEA’s own estimates, and estimates from a range of respected private sector analysts suggest that the Act has already raised employment by approximately two to three million jobs relative to what it otherwise would have been." - Christina Romer continues.
-
Once again the kool-aid drinker fails to admit that Obama's promise was to increase jobs by 3.5 million from what they were in 2008. The current job deficit from what he promised and where we currently stand is about 7.5 million. In other words... we lost twice the jobs as what Obama had promised when he was outlining the "Recovery Act"... or TARP.
-
All this is cover for just why Obama wanted his version of the "New Deal" to be passed in the first place... expansion of government. That is why Washington was able to buy itself a chain of banks, a group of car manufactures, and even more of the housing market when Obama got his TARP bill passed. All the while we are supposed to look the other way when it comes to the fact that Obama's thugs had to shove tax dollars down the throats of many banks and tried to do the same with Ford Motor Company.
-
Now we are looking at the possibility of another TARP bill (an estimated 2.5 to 5 billion)... packed with more pork than the first... and certain tax hike of at least 921 billion starting January 1st of 2011(guess who that bill goes to). All in the name of Obama's "New Deal".
-
Our grandparents (or parents... depending on your age) let FDR and other Demagogues (Democrats) expand government to its currently inflated size. Our children will now be born into slavery so to speak. And all this is because of one ideology, Liberalism.
-
In November we will get our chance to send the opening shot of our coming struggle. This nation and what it stands for is under siege, a method of war that few survive, and it is up to us to fight back. We need the sort of patriots that stood before tyrants and begged for death before dishonor. We need the sort of men and women that actively seek out fascist and destroy them. We need you.
-
This new FDR will not be happy with simply stripping your freedoms and rights one by one. He is a tyrant that knows no bounds because none have ever been set for him. Him and his cronies are on a war path that currently has only hopeless souls strewn about it. Taking scalps and bashing heads, Obama's thugs are literally foaming at the mouth.
-
So once again I will put out the call for all "snakes in the grass" who would like to join the fight (they call us "insurgents" anyhow). Go to your voting booths in November and tell your Representatives you want real "change". Where ever and whenever they hold meetings with us you need to let them know just what kind of "change" we really want. And when they do not listen... seek them out in every campaign and drag their names and records through the mud.
-
We will not tolerate a governing class any longer. Its time we send our message of "Do not treed on me" with fangs instead of hollow words. Vote... and as the Democrats say... Vote often.
