Barack’s box of leeches

Starry-eyed healers who drain blood to cure an ailing body don’t notice little side-effects—like the death of the patient.

On securing the Democrat nomination, Barack Obama proclaimed that Americans will “look back and tell our children that this was the moment when… the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…”

The Great Cosmic Leech this way comes.

Productive workers don’t extend their hands with palms up. But realities like this don’t stop some people from looking to politicians who promise handouts at no cost to the recipients of those handouts. If the recipients ever form a voting majority, their perennial sugar daddies will test our sense of humor on the definition of “democracy.”

Forced wealth redistribution in America?

Ohioan Joe Wurzelbacher asked Obama, “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn’t it?” Trying to make his “trickle-up” economics sound like it could work versus fail as it must, Obama answered, “My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody.” Growth apparently stems from transferring wealth from people who create wealth to those who never have. Obama tells Joe that as President, he will “spread the wealth around…” Barack Obama thinks that government growth gooses the economy. That this has never happened ricochets aimlessly within the Chosen One’s skull.

Scarier than Obama selling progressive feel-goodisms, is that many Americans are so angry over the subprime mortgage crisis, ignorant of history and basic economics, and conditioned by biased media, that they buy the Senator’s foolishness. A President Obama would deploy bloodsuckers dressed as taxpayer-funded, government-run health care. When interviewed by a reporter, one woman said that she is so “sick of paying for health insurance” that she would vote for Obama despite not “[knowing] much about this terrorist group Barack used to be in with that Weather guy…” Indeed. Maybe she’ll stay home.

An angry man laments, “I’m gonna hate [Obama] the minute I vote for him. He’s gonna be a bad president. … I want the government to take over all of Wall Street and bankers and the car companies and Wal-Mart run this county like we used to when Reagan was President.” Fascist totalitarianism builds free-market capitalism? A life in the Alaskan outback offers a certain lure right now.

Canada just reelected conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper partly because his government lowered the sales and income taxes. To stimulate growth, the conservatives will further cutcorporate taxes. Obama’s parasites are immune to the Canuck wisdom.

Barack Obama’s hungriest worms wear IRS blazers. According to the Tax Foundation, the IRS bloodsuckers will extract more than $131 billion a year from the uppermost 1 percent of earners and feed it to others. That 1 percent would then pay more tax than the bottom 80 percent. Obama’s plans will sail uncharted Welfare territory, targeting 44 percent of filers to pay no income tax, none, nada, zilch. The IRS will actually pay out to many of the filers in that 44 percent. In effect, 5 percent of filers will support nearly half.

Obama’s plan would annually collect $24 billion lessthan the existing code. But because the scheme would transfer $1.3 trillion over ten years from the rich to the “less fortunate,” high-minded do-gooders deem it “fair.” How will Democrats make up a $240 billion shortfall? Marx’s ghost grins.

Covered in goo by Barack’s sucking herd, on average, America’s top 1 percent will pay $116,000 a year each in additional federal taxes. Might this and the vaporization of wealth by the subprime crisis cause these higher earners to spend less? Might the most wealthy seek to reduce their tax bills, driving their spending even lower? In short, won’t Obama’s pets suck life-blood from an already anemic economy? Heavens to Murgatroyd, such questions paralyze feel-good liberals.

When self-reliant people rebelled against wealth confiscation 232 years ago, war broke out. A new country emerged. Where would a President Obama, along with Nancy and Harry take us? Under Obama’s strategy, hard work incentives would vanish. Will regretful former followers shed their trance and join clear thinkers in rebelling to the mess instigated by the man with the slimy box?

Maybe.

In 2006, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for 22 percent of all income but paid 40 percent of taxes—twice their share. Presently, the top fifth of households pays more than six times the amount paid by all others combined. Yet a recent Gallup poll found that 51 percent of Americans want government to “redistribute wealth by heavy taxes on the rich.” Nearly 70 percent want money more fairly “distributed” and two-thirds think rich people pay too little tax.

The sorcerer cradles his glistening box with its slippery occupants—and he smiles.
