"So these investments -- in things like education and research and health care -- they haven't been made as some grand scheme to redistribute wealth from one group to another.  This is not some socialist dream."
Barack Obama, 2012

"I’m gonna cut taxes a little bit more for the folks who are most in need and for the 5 percent of the folks who are doing very well – even though they’ve been working hard and I appreciate that – I just want to make sure they’re paying a little bit more in order to pay for those other tax cuts...I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody."
Barack Obama, 2008

In 2012 our president acknowledges that redistributing wealth from one group to another is a "socialist dream", but in 2008 he proposed the idea without acknowledging it was a concept straight out of Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto".  I think, in not so many words, he has just insulted the American people once again by calling us stupid.

I've mentioned this in many past posts and I will mention it in many more in the future.  Remember the midterm elections?  On November 2, 2010, Obama, in his own words, got "shellacked".  Republicans claimed the House and nearly took the Senate, all as a result of voting out as many Congressmen and women who aligned with Obama on the two hot topics of that time.

ObamaCare and the stimulus package.  These two pieces of legislation were so disappointing that it cost Barack Obama the numbers he needed to continue deconstructing America through piling on incomprehensible amounts of debt.  So the question is, what has changed?  Our president's power was chopped in half and since then all he has done is present the same alleged solutions that are exactly what got he and his party shellacked in 2010.  His argument is that he has a "do nothing" Congress but I would argue that they are doing exactly what the people who elected asked of them.  Namely, stop spending.  Most of the goals on Obama's path come at the cost of redistributing wealth or running up our national debt.  That is not progress and his spots have not changed since November 2, 2010.

The global economy is in a tailspin and our president regrets not having spent more on stimulus and he is currently awaiting a verdict from the Supreme Court on whether ObamaCare is constitutional or not.  Something as expensive as Obama's health care law could not come at a worse time and a substantial majority of Americans don't even want it.  Something that big with such division among Americans speaks for itself as a bad idea.

264.5 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day225.
