“Actually, this is not a vision for America. This is a vision for the Soviet Union.”
Keith Koffler has a great blog called White House Dossier where he has made a nasty habid of hitting nails squarely on their heads. He has done it again with his latest must read titled, "The Community Organizer’s Collectivist Vision"...
I want you to take a look at something President Obama said during a fundraiser last week in SanFrancisco. It’s been gaining some notice as a vision for America that is not historically recognizable.
Because in the United States of America, we are greater together than we are on our own (Applause). We’re better off when we keep that basic American promise that if you work hard, you can do well — you can raise a family, you can own a home, send your kids to college, put a little away for retirement — and that that promise is open to everybody. If you’re born into tough circumstances, we’re going to give you ladders to climb up into that middle class. And if you’re in that middle class, then we’re going to make sure that you’ve got the tools to, even in a changing world, have some security and some stability in your life.
That’s what we’re fighting for. That’s the choice in this election.
Actually, this is not a vision for America. This is a vision for the Soviet Union.
First of all, there is no basic promise in America that if you work hard you can do well. IN FACT, there is a basic promise in America that you can work hard and have everything go straight down the toilet.
Because that’s the nature of capitalism which, like it or not, is the economic system we have in America.
