Disdain for success

Disdain for success

August 9th, 2012 in Opinion Free Press

As President Barack Obama continues to build his campaign around envy and disdain of the successful - known as either "pay your fair share" or class warfare - it can only be deduced that the Democratic Party of Thomas Jefferson and Bill Clinton is now an homogenous lot who clamors against those who work and pursue achievement.

The manifestation of that un-American and unsustainable ideology came in the form of the now-famous declaration by the architect of the United States' failed economic policies: "If you've got a business - you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

Translation: If you work hard, chase America's Dream of opportunity and success, you're not grateful enough to the state and the entitlement class living off of your labor.

It's time for Americans be to Americans first and reject such drivel. After all, it has been the downfall across the line of time of socialist nation after socialist nation.

November's election, when heated in the crucible of truth to the most basic elements, will be a referendum on whether America is free, based on true individualism or a socialist, collectivist state that rules, vacant of any rule of law but aimed to standardize mediocrity.
