Are we doomed as a country no matter who wins this election?
Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way: "Every nation is exceptional in its own way." Democrat President Roosevelt (1933-1945) “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944: “We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” which included: -The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation -The right of every family to a decent home -The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health -The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment. Democrat President Johnson’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama has thrust national healthcare upon us, the hallmark of all socialist and welfare states. 25 years ago none of the above was common knowledge. It is only because of the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent 25 years ago!) that today we know that the democrat party has been gradually changing America into a European style welfare state. -2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism. -6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth. -Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states. The unions are rewarded for their support of democrats: -10/21/10 Wall Street Journal: The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is now the biggest outside spender of the 2010 elections. It gave 0% to Republicans between 1989 and 2012 (http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php… -1/30/09, http://www.healthyhearing.com/content/ne… Federal Employees Health Benefits Program hearing aid insurance coverage plans went into effect on January 1, 2009 for potentially 8 million federal employees, retirees and their families. -7/8/11 U. S. News Report (usnews.com): The actual number of private sector jobs decreased since 2008. Government jobs increased. During the worst of the downturn, the private sector was hammered with massive job losses, while the public sector held fairly steady. -6/8/12 Investors Business Daily: “Private-sector jobs are still down by 4.6 million, or 4%, from January 2008, when overall employment peaked. Meanwhile government jobs are down just 407,000, or 1.8%. Federal employment actually is 225,000 jobs above its January 2008 level, an 11.4% increase.” -6/11/12 Cato Institute (http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/obama-vs-… ...teacher employment has exploded; the public school workforce has grown 11 times faster than student enrollment over the last 40 years; on a per pupil basis, the inflation-adjusted average cost of a K-12 education has gone from about $55,000 to about $150,000.” 8/15/12 USA Today/Gannet: -21,000+ retired federal workers receive lifetime government pensions of $100,000+. -Economist Veronique de Rugy (Mercatus Center): Average federal pensions, $32,824; state and local government pensions, $24,373; military, $22,492; ExxonMobilExxon Corporation (one of the best remaining private pensions), $18,250. -Pension payments cost $70 billion last year, plus $13 billion for retiree health care. Taxpayers face a future $2 trillion unfunded liability to cover those programs according to the government's audited financial statement. And as though that’s not enough: -Google search Obama saying, "Under my plan, energy prices would necessarily skyrocket" and watch him actually say that (in September, 2008). -11/3/08 LA Times: “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted." -6/8/11 U. S. News: “Two new EPA pollution regulations will slam the coal industry so hard that hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost, and electric rates will skyrocket 11 percent to over 23 percent, according to a new study based on government data.” -9/5/12 CNBC News http://www.cnbc.com/id/48905756: The World Economic Forum survey ranks nations by competitiveness: the US fell two positions to the 7th spot marking its fourth year of decline.
