The Democrats have run the "perfect swindle," and it came to the fore at exactly the right time for their presidential hopes (It was planned that way). They disparage "millionaires" and "the rich," as if making more money than you was a "bad thing." Tell me . . .isn't it "every man's" ambition to become rich? Yet they successfully gain support from "the middle class" for their continuing efforts to make poor people out of "the rich." But what happens when there are no longer any "rich" to invest in moneymaking projects that create jobs and paychecks for the rest of us? How does it help YOU to take money away from rich people so they can no longer invest in those projects? The Democrats are "killing the goose that lays the golden egg," and way too many people in this country are going along with it. I would like someone to write me and tell me (logically) how we are going to survive when all the "rich people" are gone. Tell me what WE gain from hurting "the rich?" Poor people never created any jobs--except those overseeing the giving away of money stolen from the rich in the form of various welfare programs.
When all the rich are gone, where is the government going to GET the money they give away to the "leeches" of society (the moochers)? They don't give away THEIR OWN money. They give away that stolen from people who EARN their own way and have some left over (they never include THEIR "riches," which aren't EARNED by them. They were earned by their ancestors). Part of "looting the rich" was the passage of the "Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA); a Democrat (liberal) scam that had a "stated goal" of making it easier for those who couldn't afford it to buy homes. That's ridiculous on its face if you examine it logically. If they can't AFFORD it, how is a law going to make it possible without taking money away from others who can (They say people "have a right to their own home." But it's not a "right" when it has to be TAKEN from others in order to give it to them.)? So they FORCED lenders to loan money to those who could not pay it back--ever, and created Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to "buy up" those mortgages to "stave off" the inevitable crash when the money ran out until the "crash" it created helped them win an election. That scam has come to fruition and they're falsely blaming "Republican policies" for the financial crunch, suggesting that Barack Obama, one of the CREATORS of the scam can "solve the problem" THEY created with his help.
But they can't point to any LOGICAL action of the Republicans that created this problem, while their own actions are crystal clear. They made this law in a Democrat -controlled Congress and it was signed by a Democrat president (Bill Clinton). So how in hell can they blame this on Bush? Bush tried and tried (12 times) to stop their scam, but was rebuffed every time with people like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd (the CREATORS of the scam) saying, over and over, "There's nothing wrong with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac." We now know that was, and is false. But they still repeat, over and over, the lie that this "financial crunch" is the "fault of eight years of Bush's failed policies." What a whoop that is! At the same time, Congress AND the Executive BANNED drilling for oil in any territory controlled by the United States, A "formula for disaster" because when fuel prices rise, the price of EVERYTHING rises because everything you buy must be shipped at some point in its life. This created yet ANOTHER "financial crunch" in addition to that created by the CRA. They SAY that it is "capitalism" that failed. Actually. NOTHING failed. Their scam worked perfectly.
They CLAIM they "have the best interests of America" in mind, but they don't. They WANT the cost of fuel to rise and create this "crunch" just before a presidential election to make Americans mad and frustrate them while they consistently (and falsely) blame it on George Bush (with nothing LOGICAL to back it up). This "two-pronged attack" on our economy was Democrat-created to help them win an election they do not deserve and put a SOCIALIST in the White House to advance their socialistic ideas. Bush rescinded the Executive ban on drilling, but the Congress has not. So it's STILL a Democrat-created and maintained problem. Yet they may be successful in getting not only a Democrat president elected, but also in getting a Democrat-controlled Congress with a "filibuster-proof" majority so they can do ANYTHING they want, without meaningful interference from the Republicans. They will have created a "bloodless coup" on our government. (Just common sense)
