Barack Obama and his SOCIALIST zombies seem to have an obsession with “fairness”, so let’s apply that term to Obamacare and taxes, just to be fair. First, we make ALL taxes ‘FLAT taxes. Every taxpayer in America pays a flat 9.75%, NO exemptions. Why 9.75%, you may ask? Because God Himself only asks for 10%! Isn’t this fair? Proportionately, EVERYONE is paying the same, and yet the lower income people will be getting MORE services for their money.
Secondly, we need to remove ALL exemptions to Obamacare: everyone, including unions, Congress, the President, and EVERY federal employee from SCOTUS on down. If Obamacare is good for the ordinary taxpayer, then it should be good enough for those people who live off the taxpayer. That’s fair right?
How about the Democratic-controlled Senate passing an actual budget? Americans could then see where their money is going. This action would be fair because ALL programs would be open to scrutiny. Pass a budget and the two political sides would have a firm foundation for negotiation and compromise, right? What is there to hide by not putting government money requests in writing?
No more negotiating treaties with the United Nations without full disclosure to American citizens first! What is this treaty set up to do? Who will it affect? Does it affect the sovereignty of the United States or its Constitution in any way? Let’s reduce America’s contributions to the United Nations to the median of all nations. We pay our fair share and ONLY our fair share. We do NOT place American troops under the command of any other country ever! This is fair right?
Social Security benefits, upon the death of a spouse, should only be paid to the surviving spouse. No more benefits to send children to college. Before all you bleeding hearts get your Progressive tails in a wringer, answer me this: who paid for the children’s benefits? It certainly didn’t come out of the deceased! Besides, with billions of dollars of endowment money in elite “private institutions” like Harvard, Yale, and on and on, why don’t they set up scholarships for those qualifying children themselves? Why are these places allowed to accumulate so much money and still raise tuition sky- high? Public universities and colleges get government money on top of tuition, and they offer different grants, scholarships, and loans to help with getting a college education. Why does Obama think that a college degree is the be-all, end-all to life’s problems?
How many people today are really working in the fields that they got their degree in? How many are under-employed? Is the expense of a college education really beneficial, or right, for a lot of people? Ask Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerburg! Is it fair that we ask taxpayers to support someone else’s children in college when they can’t even send their own?
Is it fair, Mr. Obama, that you and Progressives expect people who object to abortions to pay for them through their tax dollars? Is it fair, sir, that you expect taxpayers to pay for contraception for others when it is readily and cheaply available almost anywhere? Even truck stops and bars have contraceptives in machines in the bathrooms. If they can’t afford a buck or two, then I guess they can’t afford to have sex either. Is it fair to ask religious organizations to compromise their principle because you want “social justice”?
Do you think it’s fair, Mr. Obama, that you pick and choose which laws you want to enforce merely for political gain? Do you think it’s fair that a young man, serving his country as a border agent, is shot and killed with weapons supplied in a botched gun walking operation while you and your Attorney General stonewall a Congressional inquiry into who was responsible for this badly executed operation? Is that fair to his family. sir?
Is it fair, Mr. Obama, that while this country is suffering from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, you have time for 100 rounds of golf and a myriad of vacations? Is it fair that Congress gets paid more than three times the median income of average Americans, yet spend only about 145 days a year actually doing something? Is it fair that Congressmen get to go on “junkets” (political speak for vacations) and take their spouses to some pretty exotic places on “fact-finding trips” when most Americans are struggling to put food on their table?
Is it fair, Mr. Obama, that you keep wasting billions of our tax dollars on “green energy” projects while you are deliberately waging “war ” on fossil fuels and causing energy prices to skyrocket at a time when most Americans can least afford them? Is it fair to be putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work because of your personal dislike of fossil fuels and your catering to the environmental fascists who want to put us back into caves?
You keep bringing up the word “fair”, Mr. President, but so far, you have NOT been either fair or honest with the American people. Your idea of “fair” is more in line with the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics. How about National SOCIALISM? You don’t praise the people in this country whose ideas, ingenuity, sacrifice, and hard work make this nation great. You denigrate those who have achieved wealth instead of pointing to them as an example of what one can achieve in this country.
Is it fair that you put the consideration of illegal aliens BEFORE the protection and safety of your own citizens? Is it fair that you and your Senate majority leader are holding up legislation that would help put America back to work just so you can blame the Republicans and gain political points instead of actually doing something? Is it fair that you refuse to answer questions from reporters and instead get mad when you are questioned, sir?
Do you think that it’s fair, Mr. Obama, to believe that the only definition of “fair” is what you and your zombies say it is? Equal opportunity does NOT mean equal outcome! In case you missed it wherever you were born, the sign on the wall said “Life is NOT fair, it is only what you make it!” Do you really believe it is fair to take from people who have worked hard, or have been the recipients of the hard work of those who came before them, and give to other people who refuse to put in the effort? That’s not fair, Mr. Obama; that is theft!
Please stop calling for fairness when you don’t even know what that means. Redistribution of wealth in one form or another ISN”T fair! It isn’t right, nor is it justifiable! When you and your followers start being “FAIR”, then maybe America will have a chance to be great again.If that is NOT what you want for America, then why are you in the White House?
