Words of a Wise Man to ALL Voters

Wise words for an election year ………..

* You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.

* You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong.

* You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.

* You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.

* You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.

* You cannot build character and courage, by taking away men’s initiative and independence.

* You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could, and should, do for themselves .

    After many hours of watching all of the reports on Obamas steal the wealth program I am just sick. So he wants to give our HARD HONEST EARNED money to the ones who feel they are being left out. Hmm , I say to that GO GET A JOB if you want a home if you want a better tomorrow then get out there and make it happen . The USA Government is not your money making cash cow. He has stolen parts from a list of FAILED programs that did not work when they were tried and they will only bring this Great Nation down . McCains cut the tax put more in the consumers hands will show growth to our country’s economic economy . If there is more in the taxpayers hands that will go back into sales and job markets where the tax revenue will grow as well . Reduce the government spending and increase the spending power of the US consumer then you have growth . Not giving it to individuals who have not worked towards it . We came to Oklahoma City over 12 years ago with a suitcase a duffle bag and a steamer trunk . Without STUPID IDEAS LIKE OBamas we have a new home , a nice car , good food and a future . We did the hard work to get here we made the sacrifices to have what we have and we did it without a hand out. If you want the American Dream then go EARN IT. It will taste better than being made to say PLEASE SIR I WOULD LIKE SOME MORE. I am sorry but my name is not Oliver. And by the way I am a NON Acorn registered democrat that voted for McCain. WAKE UP AMERICA AND SMELL THE MARXIST CRYBABY .

    Thanks for your comment. Your comments reflect how many Americans feel – perhaps however, not enough of them. The problem is that most people don’t really get what this man is about – spread the word about this blog site – perhaps we can inform a few more before it is too late.

    Obama wants to roll back the taxes to where they were under the Clinton Administration. I hardly think that will make anyone suffer. In the past years, the Republican party has been bankrupting this country, while at the same time giving tax cuts to the super-wealthy. That won’t work anymore.

    Eric, this is 2008, almost 2009. This country is in a totally different place than it was in the 1990s – namely we are part of a global economy, the dollar is greatly devalued, interest on investments is almost nonexistent, gas prices are higher, we are in a recession with inflation. The stock market has dropped enormously, foreclosures are at an all time high. In short, this is a different economy totally. Tax cuts to the so-called middle class will not serve any purpose, nor will tax increases to the so-called rich (anyone making over $250,000).

    Since when do you go to a poor person to find a job or get a paycheck? Since when do you seek out a poor person for investment advice or a loan or help buying a house?

    Like it or not, the ‘rich’ are the ones who create jobs and circulate money in their communities (a dollar changes hands approximately 7 times meaning each dollar benefits 7 people as one after another buys for their store, buys personal belongings, from one on to another.

    How is a poor person with a welfare check going to do much for you?

    It all sounds good on paper, but it is an idea that has proven unsuccessful, time and again.

    Show me one country in Europe that is now Socialist and has been for a while, that also has a dynamic economy, that produces anything in support of that economy? There are none. Each Socialist economy is stagnant. Why? Because a society that is on the ‘take’ from a government that rewards slackers and penalizes hard workers essentially eliminates all motivation – to work at all, or to work hard. The end result is that we cater to the lowest common denominator and we lose our spirit, creativity, determination, work ethic, self respect, dignity, self worth, and any remaining advantage we have in the world economy. GONE

    I suggest you do more research – and view the chart on my blog that compares McCain and Obama financial impact.
