I get that Obama's power comes from the fact that 47 percent of Americans don't pay taxes and 49 percent of American Households have at least one member that receives a government check... both historical records.
I also get that the top 1 percent of american earners supplied 38 percent of income tax revenues before the recent Obama tax hike and that that will rise to an all-time record 42 percent this year because of the tax hike.
I get how government beneficiaries completely outnumber government contributors at the ballot box in socialist countries and that that is happening in the U.S. now.
What I DON'T get is that Americans USED to be able to SEE the horrors of incremental socialism in countless countries that adopted socialism before us and they flatly rejected it. Cuba, Venezuela, etc. have all suffered economic decline over the years and decades as a result of Obama-style policy implementation.
Why can't America SEE what huge deficits and rampant money printing lead to. Why can't they see that our current 50 year low in capital spending is destroying our industrial base.
Who ARE you people who love Obama but articulate well enough on this board to illustrate that you should know better than to see him as anything more than an economic disease in human form.
What would our grandfathers say if they could See Obama's deficits and see how Obama's friend Bernanke is debasing our currency with all this debt-monetization...
... they would roll over in their graves for sure.
Even though I dislike political or other junk posts on the financial boards, you make a valid point.
People have thrown God out of this country. If you think its bad now, wait. When the Church leaves
( when Jesus calls us home ) and there is nothing left but total greed and no morals, ethics, etc it will be the true begining of the end.
The attitude of the 49% is... “Why should I work for you for $10 bucks per hour when I can just sit on my ahsss get that much from Obama and a free cell phone & EBT" This is an actual answer I got from someone. Why do you think he's making it so much easier for illegals to come in. Those are votes in the bag for the next dictator. That is ridiculous, you try to stay in any other country the way they do here and you'll be booted out so fast, plus they’ll never let you back in. But in the U.S., it's all about Votes & Control. This is todays America! It is a terrible shame, and it all started with that dictator in the White House. By the time he's out, this country will be totally ruined and ready to bring in the next dictator. We are headed to a financial collapse and all those idiots of the 47-49% who voted this joker back in think there life will be sweet, just watch what they’ll end up with, their life we be 10X worse than it is now. That’s how socialism starts, with promises of a better life for all. Equality; everyone chips in, the rick pay more for the poor. It reminds me of that saying… “The Kansas City Shuffle” When they’re watching over there… you cut it all off! That’s what is going to happen to the 49% and the other DD&B people who voted for that joker in the White House. Inviting Lady-Caca to the white house, what a fool. He’s a total embarrassment to the presidency of this great country and the laughing stock of the World.

Everyone is looking for a handout. POSObama is the man ensuring that handouts are given to specific people or groups of individual. America was searching for a failure and they found POSObama. It is that simple.
