This video came out today, posted on the internet by Mother Jones, a liberal magazine. I think the intention was to expose how Mitt Romney really feels about the American voters he is seeking approval from, and I feel the message was a huge success. Mother Jones posted this video with the idea that Romney's words would be hurtful to his campaign but everything I heard was nothing more than the truth. Reality is a good place to be when dealing with extremely important issues like the abusive dependency on government the current administration has constantly been expanding. And, it is true, if 47% of this country does not even pay income taxes then why would they vote for a man who is campaigning on such American virtues as hard work, strength, ambition, and the belief in Capitalism? Why would they vote for someone who believes individuals are rewarded for the time and effort they put into their tasks? Why would these people vote for a man who embodies hard work and success when they are content to receive a menial paycheck from the government for the simple price of continuing to vote for Barack Obama and other politicians like him.

I think Mitt Romney simply spoke the truth in this deviously captured video. You can't argue with the numbers. 47% is 47%. For more perspective, there are currently 8,786,049 Americans collecting federal disability insurance---that means for every 16 of us working, 1 is collecting disability (that we are paying for). And, the number is growing at an alarmingly exponential rate.

So, thank you, Mother Jones. I would like to hear Mitt Romney speak as realistically as this more often.

One other thing---GM is pushing to absolve itself from the federal government. They are requesting the government sell off its stake in the company. We tax payers own nearly 27% of the company. The reason GM wants to be freed from the government is because they claim it is giving them a bad reputation and because they can't attract top talent due to pay restrictions.

President Obama said "No". The Treasury Department claims selling now would lead to a multi-billion dollar loss for the federal government and Barack Obama, of course, can't have that during the election.

Do you see how backwards this is? Throughout the DNC the speakers kept saying something to the effect of "Osama Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive". That was their big tag line they kept repeating. Well, turn on the news, Bin Laden may be dead in body but not in spirit. The hatred from across the globe being directed at America is at a rare high. The ideas Bin Laden represented are far from dead, but here is GM, who the current administration is bragging about for being a huge success story, wanting to get rid of all connections to the federal government because it is making them look bad.

How does this president even stand a chance for reelection, you ask? How is it even possible, you ask? It's for the very reason that Mitt Romney mentioned in the video above. It is because of staggering realities such as the fact that 47% of this entire country does not even pay federal income tax. As that number increases, and it's not far from the tipping point, what's going to happen is the government will take more and more money from the fewer and fewer amount of people who continue working until there is simply no point left in working any longer. It is disturbing that this is the apparent end our government is unsustainable nanny state.
