Democrats, and the progressive left in particular, exploit the poor, they use the poor, they write speeches about them, and manipulate their “unrepresented voices” in debates. But one thing is increasingly clear from the Obama administration and the popular left in America, they don’t have any interest in helping them.
It is easy to explain how this can be true from a macro-worldview position looking at the President’s policies. The bailout, the stimulus, the omnibus, and the proposed budget all do nothing to assist a poor person in finding independence and they all aim to create an enslavement to entitlements that dehumanize the individual, create embarrassment for their family, and ultimately rob that person of one of the most cherished gifts God grants us–the satisfaction of personal achievement.
But moving beyond Obama’s budget policies, take a look at how the administration has teamed up to hurt the poor families of America with the program of “Cap and Trade.” Essentially “Cap and Trade” is a punitive tax that in language would be levied against the largest production companies in our nation. But since no company in the history of mankind has ever absorbed a tax, the real persons being punished for their production means are the consumers of the goods that company produces. The company, by simply passing on the cost of the tax to the consumer, is eventually hurt by the increased prices and perhaps slower consumption but they don’t pay the taxes. Companies NEVER pay taxes.
Customers who are in desperate need of what that company creates are the ones who have no choice, and are helpless in doing anything about it. The poor are impacted to a greater degree because of their own lack of capital to be able to fund entrepreneurial options to avoid such companies.
The administration especially hates the working poor. People who are trying to get themselves out of tough circumstances have been targeted by this administration to be forced into even worse circumstances–especially if they disagree. This would be largely accomplished by “card-check” legislation that President Obama promised union bosses he would see passed personally.
In making such a promise what President Obama has pledged is to take away the rights of the working poor who otherwise would be given the constitutional right of a secret ballot. Obama’s policy direction on this matter would open up the working poor to direct harassment, threats, and even violence for the simple crime of not agreeing with the union boss. Disagreement that would not even be discovered if the secret ballot was left in place.
And it’s not just the administration, but also many of the President’s supporters that demonstrate this contempt for the poor… …like prominent Obama supporter Melissa Etheridge.
Etheridge has joined a growing group of militants who engage in homosexual behavior who are now threatening to withhold their taxes from the administration or state governments until the ingredients of what constitutes a legal marriage can be redefined so as to apply to an entire cadre of sexual unions.
