Barack Obama And The Democratic Party

947 words - 4 pages

Most liberals have an overpowering, almost obsessive-compulsive drive to make everything line up, balance, and come out even.
Obsessed with rearranging, realigning, and controlling the natural order of everything and everyone to fit the perfect liberal-progressive model, they quickly find disillusionment. Their cockamamie ideas meet with scorn and ridicule in the real world of reason and common sense.
Frustrated by their inability to manipulate the behavior of others, yet with the uncontrollable fixation to make everything “right,” liberals learned long ago to harness the power of government.
They feel a self-aggrandizing compassion to empower government and create - not an equal playing field - but equal results. “Social justice” and balance (redistribution) among all people, classes, and “things,” are staples in every liberal repository.
Enter Barack Obama marching in perfect step with his Democratic entourage to the rhythmic drumbeat of class warfare and race baiting. They join hands, wail with monotonous cries of “disparity” in American society, and insist that everything must meet their definition of “fair.”
When liberals convince, coerce, and bribe government to implement their twisted theories, it creates a dam restricting the free-flowing waters of entrepreneurship, ideas, and success once so well known in American society. Government interference by excessive taxation and crushing regulation restricts commerce and personal freedom with one grand purpose; equalizing the level of success downstream. They must never allow it to exceed some predefined level established as “equitable” by a statist government and its stewards, the bureaucrats.
Progressive government promised bodies of blissful waters under their control. Instead, the ideology created fetid cesspools of stagnation downstream from government’s dam. The victims trapped by liberal ideology, wade in these wretched cesspools and slums. Generations of casualties suffer from shattered, wasted lives in every region held tightly in the greedy clutches of the Democratic Party’s radical left wing.
Americans are not victims of the free enterprise or Capitalism, but from out-of-control government. The President blames Wall Street, Business, Banks, and dozens of other things for unemployment and the worst economy since the great depression and the disparity of wealth and income. Mr. Obama and his ilk are personally responsible for most of the economic ills because the government deliberately built dams to prevent normal movement and mobility. Therefore, improvement in one’s station in life becomes misdirected, and repressed by dictatorial government. A perpetual state of dependency ensues, greatly encouraged by liberal-progressives.
Progressive thought always misses the first basic law of life, not every inequality in this world is injustice, and not all injustices are fixable by government. Therefore, some laws of natural order will not succumb to even the most ardent liberal...
