Before Barack Obama was elected president, a concerned citizen (deemed "Joe the Plumber") asked him a question:
Obama's "spread the wealth" explanation - which elicited scared and angry responses from many Americans who heard it - was probably one of the few honest moments in this president's sordid career. The true socialist ideology of Obama was on display for all to witness - and many people couldn't believe it. They chose to ignore it - convinced Obama didn't really mean what he said - and elected Obama president anyhow. They didn't really think he could be a socialist, since all during the campaign he kept his socialist ideology pretty well under wraps. Except for the "Joe the Plumber" moment.
Fast forward almost four years. The original "Joe the Plumber" confrontation was right on - and then some. All Americans have had three plus years of seeing what Obama is doing to this great nation of ours. Obama and his policies are ruining the United States. The 3-plus years of the Obama presidency have done NOTHING to improve the country. In fact, America and Americans are far worse off than before Obama took office. This is due to Obama's ideology.
Now comes the second "Joe the Plumber" moment. Another blip of honesty in a presidency ripe with deceit. Most of us realize that Obama wants everyone (except him and other elite cronies) beholden to the government. The government should grow - bigger and bigger - and be the end-all for everyone from cradle to grave. The philosophy of Obama and the socialists/communists who agree with him disdain the individual. Individual success. Individual ingenuity. Individual thought. Individual prosperity. Hard work. Personal responsibility. Drive. Achievement. Under Obama - people MUST become dependent upon the government. That is what Obama is aspiring to do.
Over the past weekend, Obama had a second "Joe the Plumber" moment in which his true motives were yet again on display.
After Obama's socialist diss of private business and personal success, the White House went into spin mode, stating that Obama's anti-business, pro-government remarks were taken "out of context."
No they weren't. If anyone listens or reads Obama's words in their entirety, they demean those who work hard and achieve great successes ON THEIR OWN. Obama's very specific words and examples of "hard work" and "success" all point TO THE GOVERNMENT.
A snippet of Obama's most revealing speech:
"There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me -- because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -- look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."
People are yet again justifiably outraged about Obama's second "Joe the Plumber" moment. Perhaps this will be enough to finally convince those who are on the fence about Obama's true intentions.
As the old saying goes:
FOOL ME ONCE - SHAME ON YOU. FOOL ME TWICE - SHAME ON ME.
The country has a great opportunity in November to right a horrible wrong. Elect Mitt Romney and save America. How much more proof does anyone need? Obama should never have been elected president in the first place.
