When Obama loses the election the keynesian economic policies will STOP. Our President knows they have not worked, never have in history, so his last remaining card is to play class warfare politics. But why? It only divides our country further? This is because Obama knows any Republican President will rely on capitalism to get us out of this mess and it will work much like it did when Regan took office after Carter's failed policies. Playing class warfare against the American people is a way to keep Democratic voters on the Gov tit. When the economy bounces back the 'fairness' debate will come back up again as those who work hard will benefit but those that do nothing will continue to have nothing. The whole 'rich getting richer' slogan will come back again. Because most Democratic voters think like 3rd graders, they will continue to vote for someone else that has the same failed policy approach to government as Obama.

My sister lived in the hipster area of Seattle for a number of years. When I went to visit, her friends would question me about living in the "South". The people out there have some very strong views about who we are, how we live, what we think, etc. Some were kind to me others were what some call snobby elitists. I have a friendly, laid back, and congenial disposition with just a little southern accent. Yet, when I would nicely correct their misconceptions, some would become very angry at me for defending myself and southerners. Anyway, the further to the left they were politically, most I encountered were borderline communist, the more entrenched they were with their false notions. No amount of logic or common sense would change their take on how we 'think' in the South.

In the end, I learned a lot. My experience tells me that this guy could have entered our city with a lot of the same bias and misconceptions about our town trying to reinforce that viewpoint while here. I heard directly many of the things cited in the article years ago. But hey, that is 'ok'. If it makes them feel better about themselves and their town and view of the world, then so be it.
