    "IT'S THE ECONOMY STUPID"

    I hate like hell to quote a phrase from the Clinton era but Obama's ultimate goal has nothing to do with Health Care Reform, Cap and Trade or anything else he will admit in public.

    Obama's goal is to force the Economy into collapse to allow hom and his radical followers to institute maneuvers that push us into total Socialism/Marxism.

    There can be no other explanation for for following policies that have proven time and again to be failures.

    Everyone knows that reduced spending and reduced taxes expand the economy and creates jobs and yet Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, always do just the opposite, in crease the tax burden on everyone and spend more of what we don't have.

    Obama is without any doubt the worst person ever in the office even Carter complained aboout being compared to Obama because as Carter put it his Administration did accomplish a few things.
    I only take exception to the idea that the President wants, in the traditional sense, a Socialist/Marxist America. However, what he and other Progressives are working towards is something not too different, and equally flawed. They believe they have a better idea. They believe their high education makes them not only smarter than the masses, but also wiser. It is not their intention at all to make a Marxist state. When we think of Progressives we should consider the very same type of thinkers who thought it was a noble idea to give the vagrants of San Francisco carte blanche of the city.

    They measure the world by fairness of outcome, and are incapable of giving consideration to any resultant disadvantages.

    However, I would hope everyone would consider this statement from the second link I attached in the OP;

    The belief is that if the govt imitates what the private sector does, that is, spends money to make money, that prosperity will magically result.
    The truth is, the money that private sector investors spend to make money represents value created whose consumption has been postponed. When govt spends money, it has only taken it from the people who earned it, and which does not represent any value created by the govt. So, when the govt spends that money, it doesn’t create value, since the govt doesn’t follow the rules private individuals have to follow to turn their spending into prosperity.
    This is exactly the Obama administration.
