Obama’s class warfare initiative
I was taught to be a lefty even back in the 1950s before the upheavals of the cultural revolution which introduced America to drugs, public and deviant sex, rock, violence, new brands of stupidity, Marxism and Marxism’ s god atheism. I was introduced to the stench of that era as a faithful, devoted Democrat. I was repelled by the treason exhibited on television by John F. Kerry spreading his vile poisons coast to coast via CBS television to launch a career for himself. The Democrat Party has never been an American political force since. It broadened its base to dream of the world, Cuba and all, as a much better place, and such dreamings found their America wanting. Spoiled children ravaged the culture. They raped, pillaged and burned. These folks didn’t die and fade away. They didn’t even bother to grow up. They returned to college to solidify their thirst for dictatorships of the equal….and godlessness and basked in American wealth others provided for them.
Barack Hussein Obama is one of their creations
Even then as a Democrat I accepted a degree or two of class envy and dislike, NOT from my parents, but at university. Even before the waves of know-nothing TAs many from foreign lands who spoke no English and thought unAmerican with great PRIDE, Marxist airs were in the breeze. One was to hate people who lived in the suburbs and mowed their own lawns. There were more interesting things to do in life…..Bombing fellow Americans for starters.
The first Republican I ever voted for was Ronald Reagan…..but still as a Democrat. My epiphany to conservatism came several years later when I started my own landscaping business. I had been a ‘government’ employee all of my post paperboy life. After all I went to university and amassed 700 plus quarter credits of learning including two graduate degrees. I had loved school learnings from adult professors in both social and the natural sciences.
I taught social problems, history, and Russian in public high schools for 13 years. One is taught to resent private enterprise when working among people not interested in enterprise.
Lightning struck me during payroll one day around 1992 crowding my 60th birthday, three or four years into my own private enterprise, a landscape company I had begun and for which I was well suited from experience and learning, if not in business skill.
Employees get paid first. Small business owners are at the end of the payroll line., and there was no money for my pockets for an entire month. Feeding workers’ families came first, or one has no business at all. And our business depended upon folks who paid their bills and might be interested in improving the beauty of their home and business grounds. They are a moody group.
I, at last, grew up politically. I was NEVER a Marxist, but I was too close to Marxism to recognize that the path of the Democrat Party is from Progressivism to Marxism. It is the inevitable Lefty goal …..to attain enough power to run citizen lives.
Taxing those who earn to buy the votes who receive their handouts has been the basic Democrat platform since and including Lyndon Baines Johnson, on of the sleeziest presidents in the American presidential closet.
Today Marxist Barack Hussein has plans for America. Freedom of expression and private enterprises is not among his concerns. He needs dollars to buy votes for the upcoming American presidential election this November, 2012:

How Taxing the Rich Harms the Middle Class
President Obama has continued a campaign for economic fairness throughout his last several major speaking engagements, including the State of the Union and his budget speech. To this end, the Obama administration seems content to force American corporations to continue to abide by one of the most abusive corporate tax rates in the world, as this is a tax on the “rich,” says Aparna Mathurm, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.
Yet, the corporate income tax has just the opposite effect. Its burdensome effects are passed in full onto American workers, who pay the true price for the tax.
- With its 35 percent corporate tax rate, the United States is second only to Japan in the tax burden it places on domestic companies (and Japan plans to reduce its rate later this year).
- When combined with various corporation taxes at the state level, this tax rate rises to 39 percent.
- The Obama administration has responded that it is the effective rate, not the statutory, that matters in assessing the burden on American businesses, but it bears mention that even the effective rate is one of the highest in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
With such a relatively high corporate tax rate, domestic businesses struggle to attract investment and are implicitly encouraged to move activities offshore. Specifically, studies show that in a world of globally mobile capital, investment will quickly flow to areas that have lower rates of taxation.
Therefore, the high corporate tax rate reduces American business’ ability to compete with international market participants, as they fail to attract adequate capital investment. This reduces the productivity of their workers, and thereby inherently lowers their wages — a conclusion validated by researchers from Harvard Business School, the Tax Foundation, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, among others.
