Obama’s core policies are designed to take power out of your hands and put it in his. He may say he works “for the poor” or “in the name of equality”, but the result is always the same. The government grows and gets more influence over your life, i.e. Obamacare. Does Obamacare fix broken healthcare markets? Make healthcare less expensive? Ensure that people are covered? Nope. But that doesn’t really matter because that wasn’t the point. The point was power, his power. Like Chavez-style power. Notice how Maduro, current strongman in Venezuela, justifies his thugery by saying he’s "defending the poor." Feel those chills?
If you really want to do the most for the poor, for women, for minorities and yourself then don’t give up your power to control your own life, to choose your own insurance…or not. Don’t give over control to bureaucrats who tinker in the economy for the benefit of a few favored industries. Demand that Obama step aside and let hardworking, productive Americans continue to create the jobs and opportunity that have helped lift millions out of poverty.
Think maybe a softer form of socialism is the answer? Still nope. Europe needs a shot in the arm, badly. But all they are getting is bureaucracy-choked stagnation. And that ends up hurting the young, the women and the minorities the most.
See, socialism is a gateway drug. It’s fun for a minute but awakens an appetite for something stronger. Europeans will either beg for a Venezuela-style dictator to save them from their misery…or they will wake up and take back the power.
So, America, put down that bong and get back to work.
