In past elections the Democratic Party had to shy away from there true intentions and pretend to be more conservative to win elections.
Now the Democrats are actively campaigning on a platform that promises to tax the American people and companies into prosperity. I have maintained on several occasions that this scheme is economically impossible.
I have also contended that in the past Democrats have changed and the Republican Party is now the party of the working class citizens of this country.
You could take my word for it but lets let John Fitzgerald Kennedy have his say on the matter.
Tax cuts create jobs and keep American business’s right here in our beloved country, thereby putting more people to work and raising the revenue for our government. Tax hikes have the opposite effect. They drive business out of the country in search of lower tax rates, therefore less people have jobs which means less revenue for the government.
Barack Obama, in direct opposition to basic economic facts campaigns on a platform of taxing the rich and giving the poor handouts instead of jobs and he says this will bring prosperity to people that have never had a chance at the American Dream. Still he himself escaped the curse of Democratic social programs that pay people to not even attempt to succeed and he lived the American Dream and millions of others have as well without these handouts.
If Obama’s “spread the wealth” plan worked this wouldn’t be an issue in this election because the trillions of dollars in wealth transferred by the current Social Programs would have made the poor rich over the last 40 years.
Obama has repeatedly compared himself to JFK, and his campaign casts itself as the second coming of Camelot. To the contrary it is clear that if JFK’s policies are in direct conflict with Obama’s and if he were alive today he would likely be out campaigning with John McCain and Sarah Palin.
