Who Determines What is “Fair”?

“Fair”, that's the key word among Obama and the Democrats as they try to justify their quest of taking something of value (money) from the successful and giving it to the less successful, all under the guise of “fairness”.

What or who gives Obama or the Democrats the right to pick winners and losers? Obama rails against the “evil” oil companies, who produce most of our usable energy needs, while he gives taxpayer funds to “green energy” companies, many of which have gone out of business after they got the government “Stimulus” money guarantees.
Is that fair?

He also demonizes the “rich” as not paying their fair share, but never mentions the fact that the top 10% of wage earners pay almost 70% of all the income taxes collected.
Is that fair?

He rails against the billionaires and millionaires, but wants to raise taxes on people who earn $200,000 ($250,000 for a married couple), who are a far cry away from the exalted income earners he mentions constantly, the billionaires and millionaires.
Is that fair?

During this deep “recession” our country is in at the present time, Obama and the Democrat Party want to raise the taxes of our corporations who already pay the second highest rate in the world after Japan. Japan is in the process of lowering their corporate tax rate this coming April. We then will have the distinction of being #1 again, but for the wrong reason.
Is that fair?

Within the Obama administration and within the Democrat Party, you have certain people who preach tax fairness, but who have underpaid their own taxes (ex: Tim Geithner, Sec'y. Of the Treasury; former Democrat Majority Leader Tom Daschle; and former Ways and Means Chairman, Rep. Charlie Rangel (to name just a few).
Is that fair?

When people who are unemployed and receive 99 weeks of unemployment benefits, which are paid for by those who work full-time jobs and who are trying to make ends meet through their taxes.
Is that fair?

According to the I.R.S., nearly 4 out of 10 American households pay no federal income taxes.
Is that fair?

According to the CBO, federal employees receive benefits that are nearly 50% higher than those in the private sector, whose taxes pay their salaries and benefits.
Is that fair?

The State of So. Carolina, which has a high unemployment rate, was denied, by the NLRB, the opportunity of having a plant built by the Boeing Company because So. Carolina is a right-to-work state, thereby depriving the state of thousands of potential jobs ( after Boeing made a deal with the union in the State of Washington, the So. Carolina plant was O.K'd).
Is that fair?

So as you can see, the person who pontificates about “fairness” is probably one of the most “unfair” persons in the whole country, I'm referring to President Obama, of course. Do we really want him or his cronies, to determine what is fair or not?

Let's make 2012 the end of an error by voting out of office, Barack Hussein Obama.

Is it fair (to the taxpayers) for Obama and his wife, Moochelle, to use the jet planes, supplied to the president, to use for their own personal use? Of course, the president must have a plane at his disposal for official use, but when his vacation trips cost the taxpayers millions, shouldn't he reimburse the treasury? But, who am I to question the Messiah?

Is it fair for people to get no raise or a cost of living increase while the fat cats are making more money than ever?

The problem with capitalism is it allows people to have too much leverage. Especially when employers have the luxury of importing labor and exporting jobs.
