President Santa Claus

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve seen our “illustrious” President, Barack Hussein Obama, going around the country and bloviating about that, through his actions, people are receiving monetary benefits and goodies that only he, by his good nature and kind benevolence, can give them as the Emperor (oops, I mean President). It’s like he is the modern-day Robin Hood, taking money from the “rich” and giving it to the poor. This is right out of the Karl Marx playbook, the father of Marxism/Socialism. The major tenet of the Marxist/Socialist philosophy is “income redistribution”, taking from the have’s and giving to the have not’s. It is a failed economic system, which can be explained succinctly by that “Iron Lady”, the late Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain, who said:

“The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples money”.

This is where our “Liar in Chief” Obama comes in, he’s the present day Santa Claus giving out gifts to the many poor, lower middle income people, and “low information” voters, in hopes of getting their support come election time. It worked like a charm for him in the 2008 and 2012 elections. From his actions, it seems that he is very generous with other people’s money (our money, the taxpayers money), money which is not his own, but he thinks it is his to dole out as he sees fit (does the phrase “benevolent despot” come to mind?).

This pandering to the no-income and lower income people, appeals to the masses of people who are looking for something for nothing, (by the way, there are many more of these people than there are of the higher income people), but, as an offset, what affect will it have on the survival of our country as a whole? We can’t continue on the road to racking up massive deficits year after year.

An op-ed column by a Elmer T. Peterson, written in The Daily Oklahoman newspaper back in the year 1951, seems to sum up the dangers of this policy and mindset as it applies to us. He said:

“A democracy can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largesse out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, and then a monarchy”.

It seems we are headed in that direction as the people seem to like feeding on the national “teat” of Uncle Sam, which might eventually lead to our demise unless we “right the ship” and act in the best interest of the entire country and not just for the free-loaders (the takers) who want more and more “free” stuff from the government coffers.

So, yes, our leader, Barack Hussein Obama, should now take on the sobriquet of “President Santa Claus”, as that is what he has been blatantly been doing, by handing out goodies and freebies like free cell phones, easier rules and regulations to get government handouts, extending unemployment benefits to 99 weeks (from the usual 26 weeks), and special favors to the unions and political contributors, as president to gin up support for himself and the Democratic Party. If it continues like it has and the Republicans retreat in the face of adversity and a hostile media, we could witness another form of the demise of the Roman Empire, only this time it will be the Western Civilization that collapses.

What Obama is lacking in intelligence, he more than makes up for in stupidity, and still his Zombies will follow him just like the Pied Piper of Hamlin led his followers off the pier to drown. This is why being a Democrat is likened to having a medical disease.

I vote my conscience, that is why I never benefit from Obama benefits.
