No wonder the media shrieked like a scalded cat when an illegal secret recording was released of Romney writing off hope of support from the growing percentage of Americans who vote for a living. This is such a sensitive area because it reveals a long-term strategy of hardcore leftists like Barack Obama:
The Daily Caller has obtained a complete audio recording of the October 19, 1998 Loyola College forum on community organizing and policymaking during which a future President Barack Obama said he favored the government redistribution of wealth. The audio demonstrates the context of that remark and reveals other far-left positions that Obama held as a state senator.
Those positions encompass issues as wide-ranging as gun control, universal health care and welfare reform. Obama also said he viewed welfare recipients and “the working poor” as “a majority coalition” that could be mobilized to help advance progressive policies and elect their champions.
This “majority coalition” would in effect use the government to enslave the minority that makes instead of taking. From there the incentives of parasitism will continue to grow, as will the punishment for belonging to the economically productive minority, until the entire rotten system collapses into communism.
Generations ago, the wise Alexis de Tocqueville predicted,
“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
That day has come. Obama isn’t our president. He’s our mortician.
