Two Americas

Two Americas

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t.

The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts.

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous; Society
KEYWORDS: americas; two
My country has not been as divisive in my lifetime than now.

Um, we are ignoring the new biggest player:

China. Both parties are completely ignoring the biggest threat we face.

Bring back American jobs.

American.

this isn’t my country. might be the same land, but my country was a merit oriented representative republic ... not a marxist dictatorship run as a soft tyranny (currently)

My greatest fear, way back when the Silky Pony first ran, was that too many of my fellow countrymen were just eager and waiting to lap-up that “Two America’s” crap.

Seems they finally found the right salesman.

The rationale posed by many US politicians today is one of class warfare and therefore they justify openly taking from successful people and businesses. This is world wide. Cypress, France, Poland...

The Takers have overtaken the Makers. That won’t last forever.

The entitlement army is in control.
As long as the govt can create 40% fake money to pay them.
The real challenge is figuring out when the markets will say “no more”.

Just saying.

Democrats have always been about growing government and dependency.

What I am complaining about is our side. We need to support America, and American growth.

China is now the largest exporter on the entire planet. We keep supporting them, yet we cannot own things in China, and we cannot actually even invest there, except as a minority owner.

America. The greatest country in the history of earth, is being superceded by a massive communist country, which only allows it’s own race to fully participate.

Wake up people.

America we need to compete. Now. Not by “buying in” to China, we need to actually compete with China as America.

Bring back American companies.

Now.

Our reckless government spending and borrowing is directly building up the power of this future adversary. We are needlessly subsidizing the rise of our own enemies.

Half the country is pulling the wagon containing the other half.

0bama was speaking last night to the pullers.

They know the country has changed and all Zero's talk about citizenry and community is just plain BS from the Liar in the White House.

A truism well known by our framers was that of private virtue and public vice among popularly elected politicians.

To illustrate, perhaps the vast majority of today's rat politicians never stole a personal item in their lives. OTOH, when participating as one of many, such as in congress, they have no problem stealing property from one set of citizens and giving it to another set. It is why so many tea partiers go wobbly or full rino.

The key to possible restoration of freedom is to return to the federal design of our framers.

As long as both houses of congress are popularly derived, our fate is democratic tyranny. There is little, if any time to save our republic.

A letter to the editor of mine that wwas published a few motnts ago:
It has been observed that we have been becoming two Americas. That corporate profits are soaring amid a weak job market and continuing struggle for many further evidences this phenomenon. Yes, there are two Americas. There are those Americans who are continually learning more, creating more, stretching and challenging themselves more, being, doing and having more. Then there are those who are continually demanding that more be given to and done for them.
The divide is along the lines of those who take more and more responsibility for their lives, circumstances and futures; and those who cede that responsibility to others. People in the former group live larger and larger while those in the latter experience more frustration and hardship. How can it be a mystery that giving up responsibility for one’s own life results in less control and fewer options?
It is a monumental crime that politicians and others enable and encourage millions of people to give away responsibility for their own lives thus giving up control, power, options and the opportunity for growth. And the only solution offered is more of the same: Give up even more responsibility and become smaller still. Shameful. Politicians have destroyed the potential of untold millions in their unquenchable lust for power.
This is the story behind soaring corporate profits amid a weak job market and widespread struggle and hardship. There is no sign that the trend will be reversed but rather will progressively continue.

America under the current regime is become a fascist state. sadly, most Americans cannot even grasp ‘The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you; Vote Democrat.’ We have degenerated that far, by design!

Although B. Hussein Obama has an aversion to taking credit for his abundant failures, lies, and criminal acts, B. Hussein did a credible job of describing just what his failures were in last night’s State of the Obamanation Failed Union Speech.

B. Hussein waxed eloquent on his description of how the Keynesian “Prime the Pump” stimulus theory of economics has failed without ever mentioning Keynes, or economic stimulus.

It was a masterful slight of hand speech, worthy of B. Hussein’s reputation as a consummate lying, con-artist, (pardon the redundancy).

Now that Commie Obama has been forced to admit that Communism (Mandatory Universal Federal Medical Insurance Tax, aka Obamacare), Economic Stimulus, Fed-controlled low interest rates, and Constitutional violations have made the last 5 years a living Hell for The Middle Class in America, the question I have is as follows:

“Who in the RINO Wing of the Republican Party has learned NOT to repeat what B. Hussein has proven for 5 years to be failed Federal Government policy?”

What say all of you?

I just found the article today. It is well worth reading.

Of course, class conflict is intentionally stirred by Marxists. It is their vehicle to power.

Here's a link to the original article on the author's website: TWO AMERICAS
