Because it is all a political/status level farce. The small cluster of extremely wealthy, publicly traded corporation's CEOs and the like haven't
been negatively impacted by Obama in the least, nor will they be. Ask yourself this: isn't it fascinating that the issue of the top tier tax rates
and "pay their fair share" was never seriously breached during Obama's first 2 years in office, when he had a super majority in the House and
Senate and could have easily raised taxes on the wealthiest Americans with virtually no lawmaker resistance? It hearkens one to the early years of
George W Bush's presidency, when he had a GOP majority and yet not one serious effort was made to do anything about abortion in the US.
Lesson learned: the powers that be want the American people to believe that one party is fighting against the wealthy while the other party is all
about protecting the American Dream and believes firmly in trickle down economics. In perpetuating this (and feel free to take this a prediction of
what will transpire as we approach this fiscal cliff), it ensures the government (both parties) the ability to further fleece money from the middle
class, America's life blood, while barely impacting the wealthy and simultaneously supporting the poor along with deeply entrenching their dependency
upon the government's redistribution of the middle class' earned money.
Obama is AWFUL. Awful for America, awful for true entrepreneurs (small business owners), and awful for future generations who will ultimately get
shafted with the bill for his malfeasance. But by God the guy has a hell of a racket, managing to massage the behind closed doors support of the
upper crust alongside the full support of his personal army of financial dependents his handouts, direct and indirect in the form of lost jobs and
sudden reliance on welfare, have created.
Ayn Rand was wrong. Atlas didn't shrug, Atlas got a cramp, shifted the globe slightly, and somehow managed to send the middle class spiraling
towards the abyss.
