"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen." –Barack Hussein ObamaIf you haven’t noticed there is a distinctive move to lower America’s standard of living to that of a third world nation. Barack Hussein Obama and his Democrat cohorts in Congress don’t believe that you have the right to pursue prosperity. Why? Because it isn’t fair that one country should enjoy the abundance that America has enjoyed for these many decades while other nations suffer in poverty.
It’s not fair that you ride around in cars, it’s not fair that you air condition your homes and it’s not fair that you leave scraps of food on your plate when there’s staving children in China so Obama has decided that American will share in the world’s suffering by making America take it's rightful place among the Third World.
A poorer America must be an ideology that Democrats espouse because William Jefferson Clinton predicted that this day would eventually come back in 2002 at the World Conference in Australia when he pronounced that American prosperity is at it’s end.
[T]his "brief moment in history" when the US had pre-eminent military, economic and political power, would not last.Yes, Democrats have been just waiting for the fall of America and now that there is no opposition in government to hold them back from realizing their folly to enact the full effect of Democrats deconstructing America.
"This is just a period, a few decades this will last, and I think that all of us who are Americans should think about this and ask ourselves how do we wish this moment to be judged 50 years from now," --Former President William Jefferson Clinton (see source)
Do you remember what Obama told Joe the Plumber? Obama told Joe that he planned to spread the wealth around.
"It's not that I want to punish your success. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too.
My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." –Barack Hussein Obama (source)
The only problem with Obama’s “trickle up poverty” theory is that it will assure that middle class Americans are never prosperous again. In order for prosperity to return to America we need the manufacturing jobs back that we’ve lost over the decades. Middle class jobs that were outsourced to China and India for low wage none benefit workers thereby gutting the American economy but engorging corporations with usurious profits.
So it is important to note that no matter what the stock market does and no matter what profits are reported by banks if the American people are not working good paying middle class jobs with health care benefits this economy will never recover to the prosperity that Americans are accustomed to.
Therefore, you need to know that it was Congress that allowed Corporations to outsource American jobs for higher corporate profits. The lack of jobs is the fundamental thing wrong with the U.S. economy. Any discussion about improving the economy is nonsense if creating private sector manufacturing jobs is not apart of that discussion.
So please understand what is happening when Obama and the Congress oversee the dismantling of the U.S. auto industries by selling it off to foreign powers.
Finally the Global Warming legislation that was recently passed by the House of Representatives entitled the Clean Air Act has a cap and trade component to it which will transfer America’s wealth to the third world if it is ever made law.
Cap-and-trade refers to a system with emission limits that allows industries to barter with each other about who emits how much. Advocates refer to it as free enterprise, but there is nothing free about it - it would be a government-mandated, bureaucratic monstrosity.If we lose more manufacturing jobs to countries that refuse to put cap and trade restrictions upon themselves like China and India that will continue the wealth transfer from America to the Third World until our economy is so weaken that we are in fact the Third World.
It hasn't worked to solve much of anything in Europe, and economist William Nordhaus of Yale fears it could cost trillions more to implement than whatever warming damage it might prevent.
The main reason for the thing is that most of those discussing it do not call it a "tax," which is a word voters do not like.
Meanwhile, rescue for an economy increasingly squeezed by the politics of warming alarmism is supposed to come in the form of "green jobs," only it won't. Various researchers are figuring out that we could lose more manufacturing and other jobs than we would gain, and that many of these green jobs as currently outlined would be non-productive and subsidized.-- Jay Ambrose (source)
Why would anyone want this to happen? Just think if corporations could pay Third World wages without the instability of the Third World that would be the best of both worlds for them. So your government in cahoots with big business is going to cap wages and prosperity in America and trade American prosperity to the Third World until there is no discernable difference between the two worlds.
Ergo they pay Third World wages in the safety and security of what was once the greatest and most prosperous economic system in the world. Stealing American wealth and that my friend is what cap and trade is all about.
