Geez Blue, but it didn't have to be that way. Because some loon says it must be so doesn't mean it should happen. Oh, it's a self fullfilling prophesy. Yep, I know that one will be over your understanding pay grade.

Good video. It sums up the failure of trickle down economics nicely. We gave it a shot. It didn't work. In theory it should. But it didn't account for human greed. Why would the 1% have ANY incentive to hire workers and create jobs with their tax savings. From their perspective, it would be safer to ship it into tax-free offshore accounts to earn interest a la Mormon Rich Money.
Those who, through inheritance or hard work, happen to have money in the bank, have no responsibility at all to "hire" workers. Economic activity created by the wealthy comes in the form of the expenses they incur supporting their lifestyle. While the average person may buy a $100,000 house and a $20,000 Chevy, one who is wealthy may buy a million dollar house, and a $60,000 Lincoln. Upkeep of more expensive "toys" creates greater economic activity as well.

Nor does anyone who chooses to be involved in owning or operating a business have a "duty' to hire more employees than they need.

Economic conditions dictate employment. If business is brisk, business will hire. If business is languishing, so does employment.

It is government's job to provide the level playing field, based upon the U.S. Constitution, that gives all the opportunity to participate and succeed or fail based upon each individual's drive, ability, and in some cases, sheer luck.

Government has failed in that regard, and will continue to fail as long as leadership believes that government is somehow superior to the individual when it comes to each individual's decision making.

It's pretty simple: Are we better off today with lower incomes, and higher fuel, food, and utility prices? Has ObamaCare actually healed anyone? Has higher taxes made government operate better? Is a 20% increase in dependence upon government "food stamps" in order to eat desirable? is nearly unsustainable national debt a good thing?

If your answer is "Yes", then Barack Obama is your man, because you can be certain of 4 more years of the same.

If you are disappointed in the results produced by the policies enacted over the last four years, then it's time to give someone else, with a different point a view, an opportunity to do the job.

All this time and now you “figured out” something… and that something that you put together is this ridiculous convoluted conspiracy? Your ‘deep thought’ has brought you to this conclusion about one person on an internet forum where the same hand full of people expresses thoughts and opinions?
WOW, hope you didn’t hurt yourself conjuring that stupidity up… but what I find amusing is that you didn’t address the powerful video that I posted that is spreading.

The creator of ‘The Simpsons’ has put together a must see video:
WHY OBAMA NOW
This will be played on every college campus -- and there are plans in the works for the Obama Campaign, or Super-PAC to use some of its air time bought with the record 200 million Obama raised last month to run this in every TV market over the next few weeks… WOW, this is a powerful video.

of course obama lives in a cartoon world controlling cartoon peasants so this caricature is right up his alley. luckily most people don't vote for cartoon characters so his departure back to fairytale land in 4 weeks will allow him to go back to his cartoon dreams.

It gets harder everyday trying to figure out the American people. You seem earnest when talking
about our people getting killed and the cover-ups.
You don't like the prices of gas, food and most
everything that is essential to your way of life.
But when it comes down to your choice of who
will lead us out of this way of life many have
accepted......Its always Obama.
We have choices, and when things are happening
that is hurting our people and country, Why are
we incapable of wanting and wishing for change.
Satified and really just can't make up your minds.
Right or wrong, its almost voteing time. FOUR
YEARS is a mighty long time as you know from the past four...It really is up to us all what will
happen. Democrate or republican, I pray I know
what is RIGHT when I walk into that voteing booth.
America just may depend on my vote...Does it scare
you just a little as to how much may depend on you?
