THE PAST? HERE'S THE FUTURE

On Nov. 1, 2008. three days before the presidential election, Democratic Sen. Barack Hussein Obama led Sen. John McCain by 4 percentage points. Obama came out of the Democratic National Convention with a 15-point lead over McCain—and with a sworn statement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [CA] who, as the Chairman of the Democratic National Convention, was required to certify that the nominee had been properly vetted and verify that Barack Hussein Obama met the requirements of Article II of the Constitution and was eligible to seek the office of President of the United States. Her signed statement was a sworn oath. So much for honesty in the office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
As he campaigned for the highest office in the land, Obama promised black voters that he would restore the generational entitlement system that was dismantled during the Republican Revolution of 1994. He added that his first priority, once he took office, would be the redistribution of the wealth of "the rich." Thus far, that's the only campaign promise Obama has kept. To you and me, and to the minorities to whom he made that pledge—whose combined backbreaking sweat equity built this nation— "the rich" are the fat cat industrialists who own the companies, the Wall Street investment bankers, stock brokers and hedge fund operators like Paul Alfred Paulson who personally earned $4 billion in 2008 short selling the stocks in your 401K retirement fund (which is why you can't retire anytime soon), or the executives at AIG, or CitiBank or JP Morgan Chase who earn seven-digit incomes only because they are part of the entitled elite. (Back in my younger days when I earned about $45K, my boss earned about a half million per year and paid Uncle Sam less income taxes than I did).
Since the rich are as invisible to the media as they are to the politicians they have enriched with the gratuities that keep them in office, to the social progressives, the term "rich" refers to working class Americans who are actually upper "middle class." Politicians always talk about taxing the rich because the working class likes the idea of the rich being soaked. The problem is, the wealth of the rich sit in tax exempt trust funds. Only the money spent by the rich for their personal comforts, and the simple interest on those funds are taxable. Rich, to a politician is the small business owner who has the potential to grow his business enough to compete with the true rich. Which, of course is why they want to tax him into oblivion. The fact that taxing him to excess means you and I lose our jobs means nothing to them because the "jingle" in their pockets sings to the tune of the invisible rich. But, don't worry. The politicians will take care of you by extending your unemployment benefits an additional 13 to 26 weeks.
To the elite, we are the "rich" because we are "accidentally well-off." Thus, when a politician talks about taxing the rich, he's talking about us regardless which side of his mouth the words come. The rich fear the middle class because that's the only segment of society which threatens their grip on the serfdom (referred to today as "the low income working class—and tomorrow, the rest of us"). Try as hard as the historic pilgrim stock rich families in America did to make the US Senate an American "House of Lords," and the House of Representatives the commoners' legislative body, the middle class keeps getting elected into the Senate. The true rich in this nation are economically invisible because they want to be invisible.
Thus, when politicians talk about taxing the rich, they always mean they are going to tax the middle class. Even when the candidate assures the voters that if their household incomes are less than $250 thousand, they will not face any increased taxes. Without looking at any of the tax increases planned for those earning $30 thousand-and-up by the Obama Administration, the three "stimulus bills" already enacted: the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 total three trillion, five hundred and seventy-nine billion dollars which will be paid for by the middle class because the truly rich are, once again, invisible—even to the IRS—since their money is sheltered in tax-exempt foundations.
When Obama addressed the NAACP in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 14, 2008 he told them when—not if—he won the White House, speaking as a man with foreknowledge that he was going to win the election, he was going to redistribute the wealth of America. Obama will deny he knew that ACORN and MoveOn.org's "Motor Voter" efforts would create 35,626,580 illegal votes for him, so regardless how many conservatives or liberals voted for Sarah Palin and, by extension, Sen. John McCain, his Progressive handlers assured him that, at the end of the day, he would become the 44th President of the United States. In the end, when you do the math, the statistics released by the Obama Administration on the Election of 2008 indicate there were 169 million registered voters of which 86 million were registered as Democrats, 55 million were registered as Republicans and 28 million were registered as Independents.
The FEC reported that 56.8% of the registered voters voted. That's 96,992,000 actual votes cast by registered voters who voted once. But the total number of ballots in the ballot boxes totaled 132,618,580. It appears that a lot of people voted a lot of times, (or a whole big big bunch of ballots in a whole big bunch of States were simply added to the mix before or after-the-fact and counted with the legitimate ballots). Regardless how they got there, when you do the simple math, there were 35,626,580 too many votes counted. Obama was credited with receiving 69,456,897 votes. Subtract the 35,626,580 "too many votes" and we find 33,830,317 legitimate votes cast for Obama. The Progressive far left is comprised of about 31,820.000 people who would vote for a Marxist Muslim. That leaves about 2,030,317 independent voters who cast their votes for Obama. Four million, nine hundred thirty-four thousand, eight hundred fourteen Independents voted for Palin-McCain. The media claims that the Independents—all 28 million of them—voted for Obama. Surprisingly, with all the third party rhetoric, only 1,866,000 of them voted for one of the third party candidates.
Approximately 19,158,869 of them sat out the election because the best that I can see, their votes don't show up anywhere. I guess when we want to blame Obama on someone, those were the people who gave their votes to Obama by default by not casting them for Palin-McCain (since almost every Republican vote in 2008 was cast for Alaska governor Gov. Sarah Palin, not Sen. McCain.) Had the registered independents who did not vote cast their ballot for Palin-McCain, your tax dollars would not be sitting in the personal bank accounts of America's money barons and your great, great, great grandchildren would not be up to their ears in debt the moment they were born. I understand it was the intent of the Independents to punish the GOP for becoming Democrats. But, in the end, since the only people who got punished were us, it would seem that voting for the lesser-of-two-evils would have been a much wiser choice for the American people. Hopefully each of those Americans who chose to teach the Republican Party a lesson can explain to their children how casting a vote for integrity cost each child and grandchild not yet born $36,000 in taxpayer debt on the day of their birth.
But, that's why Obama was so confident about winning when he stood before the NAACP on July 14, 2008. He assured the gathering at the 99th Annual NAACP Conference that the redistribution of the wealth of America would begin as soon as he was inaugurated in order "...to ensure [that] economic justice is being served."

He wasn't talking about recasting a broader welfare net like Peggy Joseph envisioned when she took her daughter out of school on Oct. 30, 2008 to attend a Florida Obama-Biden rally, and remarked to a NBC-TV Channel 6 reporter that this was the most memorable day in her life because when Obama won, she wouldn't "...have to worry about putting gas in my car; I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know," she concluded, "if I help them, they're going to help me." While Obama has increased the size of the Lyndon B. Johnson welfare net, his redistribution-of-the-wealth plan was not directed people like Peggy Joseph, the outspoken welfare mom, nor to minorities of any stripe. It was directed at the invisible elite who already own almost everything in the world and who, now, want to own the rest. For part two click below.
