Brave New Welfare State

I woke up this morning, wondering why the birds and animals were not surrounding my bed, singing me a good morning song, with my beautiful dress all laid out for me, a la Cinderella.  After all, Obama had been elected president only hours before.  I came downstairs—and a nice hot breakfast wasn’t waiting for me on the table!  What’s all this about change? 

Well, let us thank God that the Democrats didn’t gain a 60-seat, fillibuster-proof majority in the Senate (yet).  We’ll all just have to brace ourselves for the next four years, keeping our heads above water as long as we can.  Because the “Party of Death” (Pope Benedict’s words) has taken control of the US.  Come January, welcome the Freedom of Choice Act:  Tax dollars to fund abortion, partial birth abortion ban overturned, no parental consent for young girls having abortions, abortion legal all nine months of pregnancy, and no feisty little “growths of evil” (taniam’s words, not mine) given medical care if they have the audacity to remain alive after an attempted abortion.  Barack Obama already has a legacy—the first president to unequivocably promote infanticide.  Now THAT’s one for the books. 

And we all know from our friend and Virginia House Representative Jim Moran that “capitalism doesn’t work.”  (Oh, THAT explains America’s unprecedented success among nations and across history.)  Moran went on to state that socialism has been impeded by the simplistic notion that one “has a right to private property.”  Obama told people to stop “making selfishness a virtue.”  Wealth redistribution, here we come!  I just can’t wait to get mine!  David’s not going to get up for work anymore.  Why bother, if his hard-earned money will just go to Peggy the moocher?  “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” just got turned on its head. 

Who are you?  Peggy the moocher or Joe the plumber?  For the small business owner and a number of regular people (like, well, ME), incentive just flew out the window.  Should David buy those heifers?  They’d make a great profit.  But Obama’s skyrocketing capital gains taxes have thrown a wrench into the spokes.  Not so profitable now. 

What better way to gain complete power over people than to fool them into thinking that he’ll crap roses while simultaneously destroying the middle class and making everyone dependent on the government for everything?  All hail the “Subsidizer-in-Chief,” in Malkin’s words.  Hey, America, we just elected—what do you socialists call it?—the “dictator of the proletariat.”  Yippee! 

Universal health care, universal pre-school.  Universal housing.  Everyone gets a car. 

What’s next—Universal Breathing? 

And the good, hard-working people are going to fund it, whether they like it or not.  Remember, there’s a difference between charity and government extortion.

See you in the breadlines, comrades.

  1. Thanks for at least giving me something to smile about this morning – reading your blog!

  2. Okay. I’m going to say this since no one else is. I was sick last night and this morning I am pissed. I couldn’t bear it last night. I went to bed at 11 but my husband had the tv on so I had to hear it. I’m sick of this celebration because he is a black man. Let’s think about which group of people made it possible. The democrats who suppress poor people, who give them hand outs and make them dependent on government for everything and teach them that they can’t accomplish anything on their own? Where was the jubilation when Colin Powell was appointed the first black secretary of state? How about when Condoleezza followed? No of course not because they are not liberals. The republican party has done more to elevate the blacks in this country than the democrats ever will, even with this election. We failed to campaign on conservative views and we lost. I pray that in four years a strong conservative republican emerges and we get back on track. I am in such a funk I can’t stand myself.

  3. Lisa, I feel your pain. But, it’s not hopeless, yet. Stay positive. Obama’s election doesn’t change you or me and the values we hold. If anything, Obama is going to provoke a lot of people like you and me to action. If there hadn’t been a Jimmy Carter, there wouldn’t have been a Ronald Reagan.

  4. Yes! That’s what we need, a Ronald Reagan. Let’s hope he or she is out there. Sorry my emotions are raw right now. I’ll get over myself. Like you, I also use your blog to vent!

  5. “Give a man a fish; feed him for a day (liberals). Teach a man to fish; feed him for a lifetime(conservatives)”
    Get ready for fish distribution…….
