The latest speech from our president, one which echoes the same theme we have heard from liberals since the dawn of time, hammers home to his political base the false concept of 'fairness' in managing our shared national resources and responsibilities.
'It's only fair,' Obama blithely mouths as he reads his ubiquitous Tele-Prompter. I would love to hear what his definition of fairness actual is, and how it relates to our national affairs.
Obama's version of what is fair and what is unfair is simple: if one guy has a lot of money, and the other guy has less than that, essential unfairness is at hand. In Obama's mind, everyone should have an equal share of everything. And this is the problem with all liberal thinking, which is based on Karl Marx's 19th century publication 'Das Kapital,' the I-Ching of liberalism. 'From those, according to their ability. To those, according to their need.' That's the bedrock of liberalism, and the basis of what is in the liberal mind fair, and what is unfair.
This half-baked and completely debunked theory of Marx leaves out a vital part of the equation, and liberals just love to rant and rave about millionaires and billionaires not paying their 'fair share,' all the while ignoring just how those millionaires and billionaires got to be millionaires and billionaires in the first place. Most of them worked their butts off, sacrificed enormous amounts of time, energy and money, and took risks with their assets that many of the rest of us would think insane. And they were rewarded for all of this with millions and billions of dollars.
And what about the 'do-not's' who did not? Who drank themselves into the gutter, who alienated their family and friends with their nasty, self destructive behavior? Why don't they have millions and billions of dollars? Liberals would argue that the system is simply unfair, and that these losers are losers simply because they got a crummy lot in life, unlike those lucky rich bastards who got their fortunes through sheer luck.
Obama and his 'fairness' argument is only for those of his base who can't think for themselves, and believe their liberal leaders who tell them that anyone who has more money came about it through nefarious means, and that with their vote they can take away much of those ill-gotten gains and pass it around to the 'do-not's', who did nothing to earn anything, and that is how 'fairness' works.
Fairness, schmairness. Rather than hating rich people (also known as class warfare), how about just putting your nose to the grindstone and forget about what others have and worry only about you and what you can do to improve your lot in life? Instead, if you are a mindless liberal I suspect you will ignore any suggestion of taking responsibility for yourself, and rather try and steal what you want and need from your neighbor who actually earned what he has gotten in life.
Believe it or not, there are more voters in this country that believe what I have to say about fairness, than what Obama has to say about fairness. And it's going to show itself in November of 2012.
You can take that to the bank.
