Last time around, Barack Obama ran his successful presidential campaign on the mantra of 'hope and change.' It worked very well, as we all know. Now, three years into Obama's abysmal administration, those two words are no longer uttered by anyone associated with the White House. And for good reason: things in this country have gone downhill since he took office. I could go into the metrics of exactly what parts of our country, to include social, political, and economic components are worse off today than in January, 2009, but I think most of us know all about it.
But this is all in the past, and our failed president is mustering his forces for a second term. This time around, hope and change are not on the menu. No, this time it's 'what's fair.' Obama throws this word around like rice at a wedding. Everyone should do 'their fair share,' 'millionaires and billionaires should pay their fair share,' and on and on. Things should be 'fair.'
To the dumbest among us, this sounds right. Things shouldn't be unfair. That's just not right. And here's a guy saying he will stand up and make things fair, if re-elected.
To those of us who are of at least average intelligence, we all know through living life that things just are not fair, in general, and that John F. Kennedy said it best: 'Loif. Loif's not fayuh.' And for those of us outside of Massachusetts, this better translates to 'Life. Life's not fair.' And we all know this to be true.
It isn't fair that a graduate of Columbia school of journalism, with honors, interviews for a news reporting position with Fox News, and is told that while their resume is outstanding, they went with another candidate who was a better fit to the position. The Columbia summa cum laude candidate was average looking, and the successful candidate graduated in the middle of her class at Boise State, but was also 2009 Miss Idaho. How fair does that sound?
But this happens all the time. All the time, and everybody knows this to be true. While this example is a stark one, Obama will resort more toward a class warfare point of view, and point out that the working people in this country seem to have all the money, and are greedy because they won't give any of their hard earned money to those less fortunate, and work less. Or don't work at all. Is that fair that these greedy working people keep all of the money to themselves, Obama asks? All people need money in this great country, Obama states. And it isn't fair that only the most industrious among us have all the money. Not fair at all.
Obama wants to end all of this unfairness using the hamfisted power of the government. If re-elected, he will re-double his efforts to legally transfer the wealth of those who work in this country to those who don't work in the name of fairness.
And those dumb non-working morons will certainly vote for that, as it really sounds fair. Why should these working people have all the money? We non-working parasites need money, too!
Vote Obama, 2012. It's the fair thing to do.
