All in the Family Under Attack

The Obama dream of a different America under his progressive mandates (picking winners and losers) comes with a heavy price tag and I am not just referring to economic burdens being placed on the shoulders of Americans. Obama’s demand for tax increases for corporations will further necessitate corporations passing the cost onto consumers. And, no one will be immune from Obama’s ‘class warfare’ tax plan. It is a shell game (hide the tax increases under the ‘rich/corporation/inheritance tax’ shell). Every tax affects every American. Trickle down taxation is guaranteed.
It is the American family which will suffer the most under Obama’s progressive ideologies. Consider the American family right now. The family is under attack. Beyond the absurdity of homosexual marriage being legalized as on par with male-female marriage (Reason, of course, tells you otherwise) and the horrendous rate of divorce encouraged by state laws which allow No-Fault divorce coupled with the almost guaranteed child support (a ‘dead-beat’ parent penal system for fathers is created in the process) parental absenteeism is at an all time high. This is due to the increased need to work more to pay for the increased cost of living (which includes inflation) created by corporations being taxed more. It should be noted that our country has the second highest corporate tax rate (39.3% (average combined federal and state).in the world, second only to Japan. (It is no wonder that Obama’s jobs czar Jeffrey Imelt, CEO of GE, has GE paying no corporate taxes here in the US.)
I dare say increased taxation (via increased consumer costs) goes hand in hand with decreased family values. And, it is happening now. Time spent with your family, with your children, will be devoured trying to play catch up with your finances. Parents want to provide for their children. Parents want the best for their children and parents will sacrifice for their children. Obama’s short-sighted plans will rob parents of the net pay that would allow parents to spend time with their children.
You know this already: when parents are not around children get in trouble. Children may cruise the cable TV channels and watch totally inappropriate programs, programs that are now on at all hours of the day. Children will cruise the internet seeing things that no child should ever see. They may hang with friends who are no good or worse, they may hang around with gangs. You will lose your children to the arbitrariness of a world not sharing your values. (Many parents have despaired of even trying to be a parent, believing that more money might make things better for the child.)
Increased taxation and increased government dependence means a decreased share of net income for the family. It means less ownership of your family values and the American dream, as well. What good is the American Dream if is not shared tangibly with your children?
(Perhaps you are a progressive who disparages the American Dream. You may then pass along the inherent poverty of radicalism as a way of life. So be it. Just don’t make me pay for it.)
Fathers are the most likely to take a hit in Obama’s tax schemes. They will have to spend more time working. Many mothers will also have to work.
Single mothers will have to work harder. They will also seek government assistance to provide for their family. Continually receiving this type of hand-out is demoralizing. This demoralizing effect quickly becomes a poor self-image. A parent’s poor self-image is easily passed on to their kids who ultimately learn that they must depend on government for their daily bread and that mom is the enabler and that dad is a loser.
A vote for Obama was a vote to build an Illinois Hope & Change casino in Washington D.C. Like it or not you and your family are mandated to play through taxation. You may break even, you may “Win the Future” but most likely, you will lose. The odds (and the lobbyists) are stacked against you. Over time you will lose everything.
Before Obama there were many Chicago hoods shaking down businesses for money. Remember Al Capone. The American family deserves better than the “fat-cat” Obama from Chicago – the guy who wants to “drill-baby-drill” down into your pocketbook.
