The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive. No challenge is more urgent. No debate is more important. We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. What’s at stake are not Democratic values or Republican values, but American values. We have to reclaim them.
Let’s remember how we got here. Long before the recession, jobs and manufacturing began leaving our shores. Technology made businesses more efficient, but also made some jobs obsolete. Folks at the top saw their incomes rise like never before, but most hardworking Americans struggled with costs that were growing, paychecks that weren’t, and personal debt that kept piling up.THE MEDIA IS PRESENTING IT THIS WAY TOO:
THERE HAS BEEN NO INCREASE IN INCOME INEQUALITY SINCE 1986:
... most of the reported rise in income disparity since 1979 had already occurred by 1986, and there has been no significant trend since then.(CLICK THE LINK TO SEE ALL THE DATA.)
"INCREASING INCOME DISPARITY" IS A SOCIALIST HOAX LIKE AGW.
BOTH WERE DESIGNED TO HELP PUSH SOCIALIST POLICIES THE LEFT HAS LONG WANTED.
YOU NO LONGER HAVE ANY EXCUSE TO BE DUPED.
[MORE PROOF THAT "INCOME INEQUALITY" IS A HOAX HERE.]
(AND ANOTHER THING:
WHOSE BUSINESS IS IT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE EARN IN THE PRIVATE ECONOMY!?!?!?
I MEAN, ER... UM, THEY "EARN" IT; IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S HANDED TO THEM ON A SILVER PLATTER!
AND IT AIN'T LIKE IT'S COMING OUT OF YOUR POCKET IF IT AIN'T YOUR BUSINESS AND YOU OWN NO SHARES IN IT!
THE PUBLIC ONLY HAS AN INTEREST IN WHAT PEOPLE WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT EARN - AND WHAT COMPANIES WHO GET GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES ARE UP TO.)
- THE ENTIRE FOUNDATION OF THE LEFT'S ATTACK ON FREE ENTERPRISE AND OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN IS BASED ON THIS LIE.
- THE 2008 CRASH WAS CAUSED BY THE SAME THING THAT'S BRINGING THE EU TO ITS KNEES: SOCIALIST POLICIES.
- THE EU IS NOT BEING CRUSHED BY THE BUSH TAX CUTS OR UNFUNDED WARS.
1 - THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO CONTINUE, AND
2 - THAT DON'T WORK VERY WELL
3 - THAT HURT ECONOMIC GROWTH
OBAMA AND HIS COMRADES WANT US TO BE MORE LIKE THEM - AND THAT'S A ONE-WAY TICKET TO SERFDOM.
THE CRONY CAPITALISM AND REDISTRIBUTION POLICIES OBAMA AND HIS COMRADES HAVE ENACTED HAVE BEEN WASTEFUL AND TERRIBLE FOR THE ECONOMY.
WE CAN END THEM THIS FALL.
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.
