It is quite apparent to me that all of this class warfare and political rhetoric has gone entirely too far. All rich people aren’t bad, just like all poor people don’t go around breaking into homes and stealing stuff. It’s not against the law to be rich in the United States, in fact in many cases, especially when the wealthy individual did not inherit it, it is a sign of success, which meant they had to work hard, work smart, and produce something that someone else would buy, therefore solving a need for society, a need which was worth a price.
That is how we garner abundance in our society, and it’s what’s made America great. To turn our backs on free-market capitalism now after all it is time to bring this nation to where it is today is silly, it’s dangerous. It is the type of socialist behavior which is sinking Europe, and if we’re not careful we will become the next Greek tragedy if we follow them into that abyss. Okay so, since we are on the topic of politics I’d like to take this one step further if I might and give you some examples here today.
MSNBC had an interesting piece online on June 20, 2012 titled; “Obama camp: We’re going to be outspent,” the piece was reprinted from NBC written and produced by Mark Murray. The article stated; “We are going to be the first incumbent [president] outspent,” said one of these officials at a pen-and-pad session with reporters in DC. The ad-spending numbers for the general election show the two sides to be even right now. According to data from NBC/SMG Delta, the Obama campaign has spent nearly $61 million on advertising, versus $14 million for the Romney camp.”
Still, if Obama has been as great a leader as his supporters proclaim, then he should win hands-down regardless of the money spent by his political opponents. Further, his campaign outspent war hero John McCain by a record-breaking number, so that’s politics right? Initially, consider that George Soros a super wealthy billionaire is the one who funded MoveOn (dot) org – so, it doesn’t make sense to point fingers at this point, and to do so would be a hypocritical tactic unworthy of a president of the greatest nation on earth.
All I ask is that you think about it next time you read how the Obama campaign has charged $30,000 a plate in a fundraiser for the Hollywood elite out in California. If you’re going to sling mud, it’s probably going to stick on both refrigerators, so let’s all be real careful pointing fingers at those who have attained wealth through hard work and free-market capitalism. Please consider all this and think on it.
