Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, Colossians 3:23
Were you better off under Bush or Obama? It is time for Dems to answer that question and take stock of their Marxist results. Even if you place the entire blame for the meltdown on GW there is no measure that says Obama has a better presidency or economy than Bush. No matter how you scale the meltdown and subsequent bad handling of the bailouts, the Bush years look like the years of milk and honey compared to the Obama years.
Marxism has never worked and never will work since it is a fatally flawed model of economics. People will not work for free for the greater good if they are not paid either financially or spiritually. They will only work for spiritual reward if they have been paid financially which is where the economic model breaks down. If the people have no incentive to work then they will have no reason to work and then begin to find other ways to survive.
When there is no incentive to work, then you will have fewer and fewer workers. This requires a larger and larger gummit to force the producers to produce for less and less reward. Now you have the producers working harder for less financial reward while growing a more coercive gummit taking more and more of their finances. This is the perfect formula for more corruption developing as this more powerful beast is persuaded or purchased to entice their friends and family. This becomes a spiraling problem driving the economy into a steep decline and where we are now.
Capitalism conversely is the Invisible Hand as John Smith calls it, which rewards people financially for their efforts and skills. The harder you work or more specialized your skills the more you are rewarded. If you want a nice house or car you have to earn it through hard work and effort. This keeps the people working harder or more efficiently to develop greater and greater income. Likewise if you are without skills or ambition you tend to have less success as you are paid directly what you are worth. The untalented or lazy people have a problem with Capitalism since it does pay you directly what you are worth.
Due to the invisible hand you need less and less gummit since there is no need for a coercive power to take money from producers. There is no need for a giant power to determine what is fair and not fair because the invisible hand determines that already. Bill Gates never needed a government structure to reward him for his genius he simply saw a need and invented an idea and a way to fill that need in a massive way. Once he developed the better software company he became a marketing company which could take $10 worth of goods and sell it for $100 while people lined up by the millions.
Where was the gummit in that program? It was nowhere to be found which is why he made billions and the world is a better place thanks to his inventions. This is why we need to ax the question, are we better under Bush/Reagan or Obama/Clinton? Are we better under Marxism or Capitalism? Now we have never been close to pure Capitalism or even pure Marxism, but these leaders have tried to push the country one direction or the other. Are we better when we push towards Marxism or Capitalism? The obvious answer is we are better on all levels under Capitalism. The Obama experiment has been a failure of epic proportions and is only going to get worse. The employment level among the youth is the worst it has been in history and has been double Bushs levels. Inflation has been increasing and his namesake Obamacare is a complete disaster. If people are covered they have massive deductibles and have no idea what is and isnt covered making their financial situation worse than ever. With these plans everyone is one illness away from bankruptcy thanks to Obama, Reid and Pelosi the Marxist braindust.
As long as we are in complete control by the Three Pillars of Propaganda (media, academia and the DNC) we will continue to be on this ever increasing downward spiral. These overeducated idjits have convinced themselves that no matter how hard they tried they could not kill the Golden Goose of Capitalism and were wrong. They have now got it on life support and believe if it is dead they in all of their wisdom can regrow it in their Marxist model. They think they can recreate this wonderful interconnecting machine and more fairly divide the proceeds. This from a bunch of spoiled brats who couldnt run a hot dog stand if it was in the middle of Fenway Park and you spotted them the hotdogs and buns. They are too arrogant to understand their model cannot work due to lack of incentive.
So the question America has to ask itself, were we better under Bush or Obama? The answer seems obvious, but it really isnt being asked. There is no comparison and only the vilification of Bush personally, so lets ask the question as a Country. No matter what you think of Bush personally, were his economic policies better or worse than the policies we have replaced them with. Did the future look better under GW or do they look better now. These are two very different ideas and give the country including the low IQ voters some clearly defined examples of the difference between Capitalism and Marxism. The overriding issue for this next election and every election from now on is, which policies are better, Bush or Obamas; Capitalism or Marxism?
Pray America wakes up
This country has been going downhill for a long time. Things were better under Bush only because he was higher up on the down slope.
