You have to know how the socialist community organizer’s mind
works. What he said recently was that the current deficit spending was “unsustainable.” “We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,” Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.”
That is a feint, a misdirection play. What he means, and where he is going, he is laying the ground work for “Gee, I cut taxes like I said I would, but this mess that George Bush made out of the economy is worse than I thought. Now that I am President, and able to see how really bad it is, now I can see that we need to raise taxes. And save money by instituting Universal Health Care. Sorry, I’m not really in favor of raising your taxes, but I have to. For the children.”
And he will use the debt as an excuse to raise our taxes. And socialize businesses. And cram down our throats Canadian-style (or even Cuban-style) health care. He’ll raise taxes on sodas, on fried foods, on gasoline and CO2. He’ll raise taxes on company paid health insurance, and on booze and cigarettes, you name it, he’ll tax it. And the idiots will believe him. “Gee, he’s such a nice guy, so intelligent and witty, good-hearted and a great speaker. And isn’t it nice to have a black President? It shows how urbane and refined we Americans are.” As he slowly but surely drives this country into oblivion.
UPDATE 5/15/09: NATURALLY, “The Other McCain” is way ahead of me. As soon as I finished this brilliant, inciteful and original post (he said sarcastically), I be-bopped over to his blog. And found that he had already said everything that there was to say about this. And with ten times more class. Oh well. Good to get confirmation that I am thinking along the right line.
