You know something has gone horribly wrong when even the Leftists in Europe are pointing to America’s President as a proof-text for why it is okay to “nationalize” industries. That’s what the French Industry Minister has done: “Barack Obama has nationalized.”
This is great! Watch Steven Crowder demonstrate Halloween “Obama-Style!”
Have a great day everyone!
What an outstanding ad!
This ad was paid for, and features entrepreneur Thomas Peterffy, who talks about his coming to America from a Socialist country because he wanted the freedom and opportunity to succeed through hard work. Mr. Peterffy said he sees America going down the “slippery slope” of Socialism, and he fears for the future of the nation. That’s why he said he is voting Republican.
“Yes, in Socialism the ‘rich’ will be poorer – but the ‘poor’ will also be poorer.”
“O.8% economic ‘growth’ it is banking on for next year?”
This is our future if Barack Obama is re-elected. France’s Socialist Government is set to impose a 75% tax on businesses and “the rich” as a way to prop up their cradle-to-grave Government nanny state. We are headed down the same road with Obama.
REUTERS: President Francois Hollande’s Socialist government unveiled sharp tax hikes on business and the rich on Friday in a 2013 budget aimed at showing France has the fiscal rigor to remain at the core of the euro zone. . . .
But with record unemployment and a barrage of data pointing to economic stagnation, there are fears the deficit target will slip as France falls short of the modest 0.8 percent economic growth rate on which it is banking for next year. . . .
“This is a fighting budget to get the country back on the rails,” Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said, adding that the 0.8 percent growth target was “realistic and ambitious”. . . .
Business will be hit with measures including a cut in the amount of loan interest which is tax-deductible and the cutting of an existing tax break on capital gains from certain share sales – moves worth around four billion and two billion euros each.
“The government is impeding investment and so will block innovation,” Entrepreneurs Club head Guillaume Cairou said of the preference for raising taxes rather than cutting spending.
“France is sick because of the model it has … but is choosing to preserve it.” . . . Read More
Here is video from tonight of far-Left “journalist” Joe Klein talking with far-Left MSNBCer Lawrence O’Donnell about the victory of Democrat Kathy Hochul in the New York CD-26 Special Election in a three-way race. Klein seized on the victory as “a victory for Socialism.” Klein believes the vote was a repudiation of Paul Ryan’s Plan to make Medicare solvent, and Republicans in general.
Well, at least Klein is honest about what Democrats are – led by Barack Obama: Socialists. He’s proud of it, and he mistakenly takes this off-year special election to replace a fallen Republican as evidence Americans love Socialism. We’ll see if that turns out to be true in November 2012. If it is, it will be the end of the exceptional America that has led the world, and the beginning of the also-ran America that will go the way of all the European Socialist Republics. I don’t believe that’s going to happen.
While speaking to the Chamber of Commerce, President Obama said corporate profits “have to be shared by American workers.”
“If we’re fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports to help you compete, the benefits can’t just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that expanding trade and opening markets will lift their standards of living as well as your bottom line. We can’t go back to the kind of economy and culture that we saw in the years leading up to the recession, where growth and gains in productivity just didn’t translate into rising incomes and opportunities for the middle class.”
Here is video of Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky actually suggesting that the United States is moving toward becoming a “Banana Republic” with a disappearing Middle Class because the U.S. Government is not doing a good enough job of “redistributing” the wealth of the nation. She was attacking extending the Bush Tax Cut Rates to all Americans.
This is the mindset of Democrats – that it is the role of Federal Government to take from some Americans and give to others to create an equal distribution of wealth in the nation. Of course, the truth is that the fastest route to the U.S. becoming a “Banana Republic” is for the Government to get more and more involved in managing the economy of the nation. Go to the “Banana Republics” of the world and you will see the Government heavily involved in the major industries of the country, always under the guise of helping the people. What always happens is corruption by the those doing the “managing,” lining their own pockets.
Bigger Government, and more Government control is not the answer. Free Enterprise is what has built the United States into the strongest Middle Class in the world, and that is what will keep us there. Less Government control, regulation and interference is what we need to unleash the free market forces that will start more businesses, create jobs and provide a way for people to better themselves. An ever-expanding Government with more and more people becoming dependent on what comes from Washington helps the Democrats expand their power – but it does not help the nation.
You think Barack Obama’s biggest supporters are not far-Left radicals? Look at this video from yesterday’s “Progressive” Rally in Washington. It highlights the many self-avowed Socialists who proudly displayed signs as to their allegiance.
This is what the November election is about. Do you want these folks, with their failed ideology to continue to run things in the U.S. Congress? 2012 will be about whether we want to continue having a President who believes in this agenda.
Here is a copy posted in a Scribd Embed of an October 2009 posting by the American Socialist Workers listing the Democrats in Congress whom they classify as “Socialists.” There are 70 Democrats listed! Why are we not surprised?
Great work by Gateway Pundit in finding this information. The names are listed starting on page 2.
Wow! Here is a trailer for a film due out this fall called “I Want Your Money,” which looks like it will just be amazing. It takes a look big Government spending, and lampoons Barack Obama and the Democrats for their socialist economic agenda.
Liberal nutcase Rosie O’Donnell wants communism in America to take over and seize BP’s assets. Rosie said, “Seize their assets today, take over the country I don’t care, issue an executive order…Call it Socialism, call it Communism, call it anything you want…. Seize the assets, take over BP!”
