One of the big lies that the Democrat Party wants you to believe is that everyone in the lower, middle and upper class are the same people year after year. In reality people move up and down through the classes routinely. Do you remember the time when everyone dreamed of doing well and becoming wealthy? That is the American dream. And we all want our children to do better in life than we did. Now wealth is demonized by the Democrats.
Obama wants the lie to be reality. The Congressional Budget Office reports that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (food stamps), a 70% increase from 2007. This is expected to continue to grow through 2014. The strategy is to keep the same people dependent on the federal government for their day to day needs. This locks in votes at the expense of human dignity.
Ronald Reagan wisely stated that we should measure compassion by the number of people we take off of welfare, not add to it. He also believed in America’s greatness and in the greatness of America’s people. Obama and the Democrat Party do not believe in the spirit of the American people. They do not believe that they are capable of success without the giant helping hand of the federal government. Hopefully the people will realize that one hand of the government is handing out goodies the other is pushing down on the heads of Americans so that they remain stuck in the despair of dependency.
