Selling Orwell

He says “trickle-down economics” rather than capitalism, but “trickle-down economics” is merely an argument in favor of capitalism. There is no such thing as “trickle-down economics.” There is capitalism, and the argued advantage of it, which is the trickling down of created wealth. Ace on our current leadership

Republican candidates get accused of using “code words” or “white supremacists dog whistles” when ever they talk about crime or smaller government.

I’m guessing the speech writers put in a socialist “dog whistle” to appeal to the democrats base.

The mask never came off, the MSM just keep trying to tell us that it was a good thing, the big money bailouts et al. As the cliche joke goes “Vote Democrat! It’s easier than getting a job.”

We Americans fool ourselves if we ignore the parallels between Europe’s problems and our own.

To flourish, the welfare state requires favorable economics and demographics: rapid economic growth to pay for social benefits and young populations to support the old. Both economics and demographics have moved adversely.

The paradox is that the welfare state, designed to improve security and dampen social conflict, now looms as an engine for insecurity, conflict and disappointment. Facing the hard questions of finding a sustainable balance between individual protections and better economic growth, the Europeans have spent years dawdling. The parallel with our situation is all too obvious.

The welfare state’s reckoning:
Robert J. Samuelson

The White House, the lefties in Congress and in the Media can ignore this all they want(OWS was an attempt to change the subject and prepare for 2012). But the reality is that all the “hope and change” can’t mask the lack of money. Yet this is the Democrats campaign song. It’s who they are. They believe in government and the spending and enlarging of government. They create a dependent class and hand out goodies to them. From welfare to student loans, the moochers view government (and the democrats) as the ones who will take care of them.

He honestly argued for a welfare state and directly stated his disbelief in trickle-down economics. For once — again, except in a few places — this wasn’t conservative rhetoric to cover up progressive policies. It was progressive rhetoric to promote progressive policies. Nobody who reads this speech should be in doubt as to what he’s selling — but they should think deeply about how much freedom they’re willing to give up to buy it.
Obama’s BIG small-minded class warfare speech in Kansas doesn’t disappoint; by Tina Korbe

The dependent class sucking down welfare and SSI (that they didn’t earn), the hipster OWS crowd, the green lobby believe in this. They are willing to give up everything for it. The democrats hope that’s enough to hang on to power. Time will tell.
