“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?” Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?”
Notice that the words “earned” and “work” are nowhere in his spread the wealth speech.
Also conspicuously absent is the mention of the Obamanomics that got this country an additional $5 trillion+ in debt, 8.3% official unemployment (15% actual), and a substantial increase in food stamp and welfare recipients.
His Keynesian economics and Cloward-Piven strategy encourages the bloated welfare state and a goal of centralized government control of the economy.
Contrast that with someone who understands and appreciates American know how, individual liberty, industrious efforts, and free market enterprise:
From Real Clear Politics.
“We look at one another’s success with pride, not resentment, because we know that as more Americans work hard, take risks, succeed, more people will prosper, more communities will benefit. And individual lives will be improved,” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said today at the Romney campaign event announcing him as the VP.
“America, America is just more than a place, though. America is an idea. It’s the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and God, not from government. That’s right. That’s who we are, that’s how we built this country. That’s who we are. That’s what made us great. That’s what made us great. We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes,” Ryan said.
Seething with wealth envy, leftwing effetes would rather engage in class warfare, demonize job creators, and engineer the collapse of a democratic republic, than actually work to better their standard of living. Not everyone has the business savvy of Donald Trump. Not everyone has the ability or even the drive to become a CEO or own business. Everyone has the opportunity, however, to succeed as far as their talent and determination takes them.
Paul Ryan is one of the few policians who understands that.
Economic strength, liberty, and success are not based on the size of an out of control federal government. That fact flies right over the Left’s pointy little heads.
