You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
We MUST get beyond the failed “New Deal” and “Great Society”, ‘Nanny state‘ model for governing this country. Those theories have been tried, and they have failed. Those who are committed to the “Big Government” mode of government are riding a Sinking ship and are attempting to take us down with it…
We’ve never had a president who knows everything, and that’s why they surround themselves with “experts” who can offer advice on the best course of action. The problem Obama has is that he believes he knows everything, and he’s surrounded himself with idiots who think the same about themselves.
None of the people in the most important positions of power in our government have real world experience. They all approach the nation’s problems from a detached, academic, almost clinical perspective. They view the country as a giant laboratory in which they can conduct experiments to prove or disprove their theories. And when the results happen to disprove their theories, they simply make excuses as to why the results can’t possibly be believed (i.e. the stimulus failed merely because it “wasn’t big enough”).
The American people are tired of being used as guinea pigs by a bunch of socialist “thinkers” who’d never believe their own theories if they ever bothered to step foot in the world of reality that the rest of us inhabit. Obama’s numbers will continue to sink as long as he believes his own hype.
