The New York Times published an article on 27 November 2011 outlining BO’s election campaign strategy titled, The Future of the Obama Coalition
, experts assessed the suburban poverty rate to be the highest since 1967.
Liberals promise all sorts of entitlement programs and handouts to those living in poverty. The dirty little secret is none of these programs are meant to get people back on their feet; they are designed to create a class of people wholly dependent on the government, on Democrats, for their daily needs. Proof of this can be easily seen when one looks at Congressional Black Caucus districts where the average poverty rate is nearly 50% higher than the national average. Yet the politicians in those districts continue to be re-elected again and again. Have the poverty rates improved? No. So why do the constituents keep voting for the same politicians? Sadly, it’s because the voters bought into the cycle of blame, deny, and stick your hand out.
In order for the cycle to work, those living in poverty have to believe that someone else is to blame for their lot in life. It can’t be their fault. For years, racism has been the liberal mantra for who is to blame. Next, liberals must convince those in poverty to deny any responsibility for changing their own situation; they must willing put that responsibility in someone else’s hands—the Democrats hands. Lastly, the liberals want this class to be dependent on entitlement programs and handouts that the Democrats control. The more liberals control these programs, and the more they convince people they can’t live without them, the more power the liberals accrue. Thus the cycle is born and eventually an entire segment of the population learns to become subservient and reliant on Democrats. This is exactly what liberals want, and why BO’s economic policies have done nothing to remedy the problems and have only exacerbated them -- liberals are looking to grow this segment of the population.
Liberals are ushering in a new generation of slackers, blamers and whiners, whom I have dubbed the
“Sick, Lame, And VideogamE” generation—or generation SLAVE. This new generation has been raised with liberals all too eager to prescribe a pill and deflect responsibility by calling everything a disease or a disorder. This is by far the lamest generation in recent history being plagued by obesity, diabetes, and a multitude of other afflictions which could probably be prevented if people got off the computer, hung up the cell phone, and turned off the videogames. This generation is either not able to afford college or are graduating college, and needing to pay back student loans, but are not able to find employment. They are also looking for a scapegoat to blame. Instead of blaming the professors and academic elites who continually raise college tuitions but provide substandard education, liberals convince these students to protest their responsibility to pay back their loans at all. Instead of blaming an administration that is openly hostile towards American businesses and the cause for the stagnant economy and loss of job opportunities, liberals point the finger in another direction and the SLAVE generation goes with the flow. The SLAVE generation is proving all too willing to accept liberal excuses, pop a pill, and expect others to provide them homes, food, and medical care. As I mentioned before in a previous blog, when the man in the big White House decides what type of home you’ll live in, the amount of food you’re authorized, and the type of medical care you receive—you are a slave. It’s frightening to me how easily the SLAVE generation is willing to put the shackles on themselves.
BO’s base of supporters is made up of the haves and the have nots. His base is made up of the 45% of people who didn’t pay any federal income taxes in 2010, and the 1% of the highest earners the have nots don’t think have paid enough taxes. This is ironic given BO supports the Occupy Movement and the have nots are protesting the greed of the haves.
But who is left? What’s left are the 54% of the rest of us taxpaying Americans who get up every day and go to work to earn a living, pay our own bills, and feed our own families. Those of us who take responsibility for making our own dreams come true. Those of us who don’t want to feed on the table scraps the Master in the big “White House” throws at us, but want to forge our own path and reap the rewards of our own hard work. Those of us who understand the Constitution guarantees the pursuit of happiness and our own economic success and that pursuit comes with an equal risk of failure and reward. Those of us who understand the Constitution does not guarantee economic equality.
It’s seems BO’s economic policies aren’t merely failing, they are designed to grow the poverty class by decreasing the economic opportunities and stifling job growth resulting in a downgrade of current middle class workers into lower class and poverty level Americans. With this downgrade, liberals, much like drug dealers, are standing by to get these converts hooked on handouts. Strategically, BO is hoping to exploit the needy as he campaigns for his next election promising their next fix and providing them excuses, scapegoats, welfare, and entitlements. Democrats would rather the majority of Americans be equal in poverty vice equal in freedom. In poverty, the liberals have the power. With freedom, we have power over our own destinies.
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." ~ Samuel Adams
