Socialists & Interest Group Politics

Socialism everywhere always leads to poverty, misery, a lower standard of living and in some cases murder.   We see the end result of President Obama's Socialists Schemes, in his first term in office; high unemployment, 11,000 new regulations to control every aspect of daily life, the highest foreclosure rate in American history and $5 Trillion added to our $16 Trillion National Debt, more than by any other President in American history.   As a result, Obama cannot run for reelection on his failed record.  Instead, he must seek to divide our nation by playing interest group politics.  Let me count the ways. 

Obama preaches Class Warfare, pitting the Makers in our society, against the Takers; his Peeps, those on the dole, the 50% of Americans that pay no income taxes at all, the illegal alien lobby, trial lawyers, radical left wing women and environmentalists, Hollywood types and crony capitalists, many of whom are feeding at the trough.   The reality is that the poor in the US are not poor because the rich are rich.  Despite spending Trillions of dollars on the poor since the passage of Great Society legislation in 1965 and Trillions more on education, more than any other country in the world, the poor are poor because they often have babies out of wedlock, are poorly educated and have no marketable jobs skills.  Of course, you will never here these facts from Obama because he needs to practice the politics of envy to win reelection. 

Obama declared war on the Catholic Church to play to radical women that support abortion and Gays that literally hate the Catholic Church, as the largest and most visible religious institution in the United States that opposes abortion and Gay marriage.   Obama supports unlimited access to abortion, including partial birth abortion even for minors, without parental consent and giving $500 million a year to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion mill.  Obama did away with Don't Ask, Don't Tell in the military to allow Gays to serve openly and now supports Gay Marriage.   He could have done these things in his first year in office; but waited until a few months before the election to shore up his support among radical, left wing women, Gays and Hollywood types.  

Next, Obama promised Latinos Immigration Reform in his first year in office.   He could have delivered on that promise when during the first two years of his Administration, Socialists controlled both Houses of Congress with big majorities.  Instead, Obama focused on ObamaCare ignoring Latinos altogether.  Now five months before the election, Obama announces amnesty for about 800,000 young illegal aliens, two weeks before a speech he will give to a big Latino audience.   Obama could not go before this Latino group empty handed.   Socialists claim that Obama's unconstitutional Executive Order was not "political".   This is perhaps the most ridiculous assertion of the Obama Presidency. 

And, then there is the Keystone Pipeline.   The federal government has spent more than 4 years studying paths for the Keystone Pipeline.   Environmental impact has been explored in detail.   Choosing the path for the pipeline has been extensively studied.   However, this is an election year.  Obama's radical environmental supporters oppose any kind of carbon, or nuclear based energy.   So, Obama has delayed the building of this pipeline even though it would have created thousands of good paying union jobs to please his radical environmental supporters.   Obama did this on the grounds that there needs to be additional study.   Of course, this is all baloney.   We also have no all of the above energy plan under Obama to make the US energy independent because his radical environmental supporters won't allow it.

Obama supports ridiculous public employee union demands for more compensation, benefits and gold plated pensions, that are bankrupting the United States, even though public employees are already paid 40% more than what is common in the private sector.  Obama wants to borrow and implement more SwindleUS Plans, adding to our National Debt to hire more teachers, cops and firemen as a pay off to their corrupt unions.   This is happening because the Socialist Party, including President Obama, is owned lock, stock and barrel by the public employee unions.  Obama wants to see more dues paying government employees so their unions can contribute $500 million each election cycle to Socialist campaigns.   It is what it is.   

We don't have national tort reform in the United States because trial lawyers donate big dollars to Socialist campaigns.  Frivolous lawsuits drive up the cost of doing business and virtually everything we buy; but nothing is done to stop it because Socialists are all on the take.   Socialists will argue that they are protecting their PEEP's with these frivolous lawsuits, when in fact most award money goes to the lawyers and indirectly their Socialist benefactors in the form of campaign contributions and not those people that were the basis of the lawsuit. 

There is about a Trillion dollars in student loans outstanding.  Instead of working to put themselves through school, many college students just took out loans so much so that the average kid owes $20,000 or more.   50% of graduating university students can't find jobs as a result of the Obama Recession.  Now the bill is coming due.  Obama is pandering to these young voters by calling for lower interest rates and in some cases loan forgiveness.  Really.  That money is owed to the American people since the government is on the hook as a guarantor.  What message is sent to young people if we allow them to abrogate their debt.  But, Obama needs their votes so anything goes.       

Socialist President Obama must play interest group politics, pitting one group of Americans against another to generate campaign contributions in a desperate attempt to win reelection.  Remember, Socialists will lie, cheat, or steal to stay in office.  The only problem with this strategy is that if Obama wins and particularly if the Congress is controlled by Republicans, which seems likely, Obama will not be able to govern.  Abe Lincoln always said that a nation divided against itself cannot long survive.  Obama's strategy to divide our nation in a desperate attempt to win reelection is not only shameful, it is a road to disaster.   We face big problems.   We cannot solve our problems if the Socialists continue playing interest group politics.   The President of the United States, who ever he is, must bring people together as a leader.   This cannot happen when a President purposely acts to divide our nation. 

Republicans do not want dirty air or water.  Nor do Republicans support throwing granny over a cliff, or starving poor children, all as asserted by Socialists in their propaganda campaign.   We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping these Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama out of office.   We have to stop this interest group politics in recognition that we are one country, indivisible, under God.   More than anything else, the Presidential election in 2012 is about freedom and the role of government.   We have to take back our country to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States and a loss of our national sovereignty.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   In the mean time, just know that Obama is playing interest group politics to divide our nation to win reelection.  Let us hope that he fails.
