- Obama's plan is to raise taxes (3%, I think) on those who make over $250K. Do you disagree with that?
He's ALSO plans to lower taxes for people making less than $200K. Do you have a problem with that?
Which of these plans are bothering you, making you think Obama is Socialist?
This election was decided by Jealousy.
I don't even know what that means.
Many people in this country have participated in the system and have made financial futures for themselves and their families and he wants to take the
money that they earned away from them and give it to those who have done nothing to earn it.
He's not giving the money to anyone. He's investing int in our country. ALL PEOPLE in the US will gain from this tax increase and tax break. If
we're going to become energy independent and invest in solar and wind, etc, save the auto industry, and create jobs while doing all that, the money
has to come from somewhere. These new taxes will be going toward the saving of the country's economy.
You can't justify theft no matter how much a person has versus other people as long as they earned it.
I hear you. I don't like taxes, either. But as it is, we're paying taxes now. We're paying for welfare and health care for the poor already. It's
not like he's starting a new idea. This is already happening. He's just going to shuffle it around to be like it was in the 90s. The economy was
great and there were lots of jobs.
Socialism is when the government owns the banks, the auto industries and the airlines, etc. Think about that in light of what's happening right now
and tell me who's the Socialist...
Obama is a Capitalist and believes strongly in the Open Market. So do I. But consider where we are right now and tell me that we don't have to take
some DRASTIC action to get our economy back on an even keel. We're in a hole and we have to get OUT before progressing. The more we dig, the deeper
we get and something has to CHANGE. Keeping doing the same thing is getting us in more and more trouble as a nation. Pretty soon, we won't be able to
fund our military. Then what kind of shape will we be in? Poor AND vulnerable.
I'm just sayin'...
Good answer to the question, though (I
). A solid, real action you are "afraid" Obama will take.
, I'm sure you can see the difference between the above concrete answer and 99% of the reasons people give when they talk about
"being afraid" of a President Obama. Like, "I'm afraid because of his "nefarious" connections and associations with questionable people."
So... what does that MEAN? Do you mean:
Obama had these associations, so I think he's a terrorist?
Obama had these connections so I think he's going to be murdering people?
Obama is associated with him, so I think he's Hitler? the Antichrist? What is the real result
that you're afraid of?
Another one: "I'm afraid because the brown shirts are coming." Same question... Are you seriously afraid that Obama (with the support of Congress
and the rest of the people in the United States) is going to start a "Hitler Youth" and ... what, become Hitler and try to wipe out a specific race
like Hitler did? Is that what the Hitler comparisons are about? Do you really think that?
