When you listen to supporters of Obama about the state of the economy, and also to Obama himself, you would think that he has been off-planet for the last five years and has now arrived to save us from ourselves. This economy is Obama’s, not Bush’s or anyone else’s. Obama owns this disaster that he has wrought upon America — period!

This concept of equality is right out of Thomas More’s “Utopia,” which Marx then used as a forerunner to his “utopian socialism” in the Communist Manifesto. The end result is the loss of individual sovereignty and freedoms along with a soulless society of mass conformity who live for the good of the all-powerful state, subjugating their own desires and dreams. No one should be better than anyone else regardless of their merits or the value of the individuals contributions.

Envy is a driving force for “equality,” which if enacted on a society results in equality of misery for all. Look at Obamacare. Eighty-five percent of Americans were happy with their insurance plans while 15 percent either were not satisfied or just didn’t have any, like young, healthy people who didn’t need it. Instead of bringing that 15 percent up to the level of the 85 percent, our little Marxist felt it more expedient to bring the 85 percent down to the level of the 15 percent. His form of trickle-down misery.

Socialism in all its forms is a lie and has never worked anywhere in human history, and only ends in some form of tyranny by government. As Jefferson wrote, “That government is best which governs least. If we are directed from Washington when to sow and when to reap, we will soon want for bread.” There are millions in want and government is the culprit!
