Constitutional Emergency

  Well said:

In early  January 2014, Bob  Lonsberry, a Rochester talk radio personality on  WHAM 1180 am said  this in response to Obama's "income  inequality speech"    

.    

 

Two  Americas  

 

The  Democrats are right, there  are two Americas.

The  America that works, and  the America that doesn’t.   

The  America that contributes,  and the America that doesn’t.  

It’s  not the haves and the  haven'ts, it’s the dos and the don'ts. 

Some  people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support  themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. 

That’s the divide in  America.  

 

It’s not about income  inequality, it’s about civic  irresponsibility.   

It’s about a political party  that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office.

It’s about a political party  that loves power more than it loves its  country.  

It’s not  invective,  it’s  truth, and it’s about time someone said it. 

 

The  politics of envy was on  proud display a couple weeks ago when president Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than   others, and he says that’s not just.  

 

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will  take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental  deviation from American values and common sense because  it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.  

 

The  Democrats have not  empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The  president’s premise – that  you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful – seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices  and spare  the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. 

By  and large, income variation in society is a result of different choices leading  to different consequences. 

Those who choose wisely and responsibly have  far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.  

Success and  failure  frequently  manifest  themselves in personal and family income. You  choose to drop out of high school and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who  gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful  education. You  have your children out of  wedlock and life is apt to take one course,  you  have them within a  marriage and life is apt to take another course.  

 

My  doctor makes far more than  I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives  have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his  young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in  a restaurant. 

He  made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes.  His outcome pays  a lot better than mine. Does  that mean he cheated and  Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? 

No, it  means we are both  free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes. 

It is not inequality Barack  Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The  freedom to succeed, and  the freedom to fail.  

There is no true  option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means  a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your  pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a  lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions. 

Barack  Obama and the Democrats  preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely  ignoring equality of effort. 

The  simple Law of the Harvest  – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied  as, “The harder  you work, the more you get."  
Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who  fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.  Entitlement  will replace  effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which  the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through  mediocrity.

He  and his party speak of two  Americas and their grip on power is based on using  the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.  

 

America  is not divided by the differences in outcomes, it is divided by the differences  in efforts  .   It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the  result of another man’s victimization. What  Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He  has fomented division and  strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit.  

 

That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped  up with a bow . (Caesar’s Divide et impera—(divide  and  conquer) ) 

 

Two  Americas, coming closer  each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand .  

 

PS: I added this quote, also from Lincoln:  

 

"You cannot make a poor man rich by making a rich man poor"
