Barack Obama accused Republican rival John McCain on Wednesday of stooping to low tactics by labeling the Democrat a socialist. "I don't know what's next," Obama, the presidential candidate, said at an outdoor rally in North Carolina. "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."Someone explain to me just how calling someone something, when they clearly are, is wrong?
The people that are eating up this guy's rhetoric are unable or unwilling to believe this guy has ideas and policies closer to Marxism, than any other candidate ever. The entire foundation of his campaign has been built around people that espouse socialism, and actively desire it to become the predominant way of life, here in the USA.
It is what it is, it's nothing else. Just like the 95% that will supposedly be getting tax cuts.
The percentage of people that pay no taxes cannot receive tax cuts. The word "cuts' implies a decrease. You cannot cut nothing, you cannot decrease nothing. If you cut them a check, you give them something. This is not rocket science here.
But back to the word socialist, it implies taking from rich people that have a monetary stake in the economy, punishing them because they are rich, and then giving it to someone that has no stake in anything but their own little world and didn't do a damned thing to earn it. The people who have that vested interest are in the best position to help people, by using their money to make more. As a by-product of their desire to make more money, it is they who create jobs for those less fortunate.
Make no mistake here, tax them more and it will cost jobs, it will not create them. Jobs will always pay taxes.
But go ahead, just try and take more of his money. It will not be long before he will cut jobs, eliminating the taxes those jobs paid out and the revenue generated in the private sector. Then, there will be more people clamoring for jobs, who were not clamoring for one, before it was decided to teach the rich people the lesson. No taxes, no durable good being sold, this is not the route to take. This, too, is not rocket science.
Obama is not being truthful with the American people. He describes his plans as Euro-socialism. But when pressed on the proper nomenclature, he ridicules and tries to silence those that call it what it is.
But this isn't the first time, Obama has lied to the American people. He said he would take public funding if John McCain would. But when it became apparent he could raise an enormous amount of cash, he reneged. This was the first sign that he was the same old tired politician, he said he wasn't.
Unfortunately, he has been raking in billions of dollars and there's a good chance much of it has been accepted illegally, with much of it untraceable.
Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity, campaign officials confirmed.
Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited.
The Obama organization said its extensive review has ensured that the campaign has refunded any improper contributions, and noted that Federal Election Commission rules do not require front-end screening of donations.
In recent weeks, questionable contributions have created headaches for Obama's accounting team as it has tried to explain why campaign finance filings have included itemized donations from individuals using fake names, such as Es Esh or Doodad Pro. Those revelations prompted conservative bloggers to further test Obama's finance vetting by giving money using the kind of prepaid cards that can be bought at a drugstore and cannot be traced to a donor.
I wish that were all. Mustang has posted about this Obamanation that the MSM will be guaranteed to ignore. But just because they ignore it, does not mean it isn't happening.
A young Palestinian in a Gaza refugee camp is doing his part to get out the vote for Barack Obama. With a little help from the Internet, 24-year-old Ibrahim Abu Jayab is cold calling random American families from his parent's home imploring them to vote Obama.
Sounds like every street drug dealer, every major urban gang, and a multitude of Gaza benefactors are willing to buy this election for Obama. Is it any wonder, he rejected public funding?
Please tell me where there is any integrity with this man? I would desperately love to see it, but I cannot find any evidence it ever existed. He lies about his ideology, campaign funding, and accepts donations from anyone whether they are legal or not.
This tells us that he is not a man to be trusted in such a high position. His deceits will follow him into every aspect of his administration.
