America's most oppressed minority

Now, however, the gossip around our little Beltway-protected village is that Obama has gotten the election message and appears to be taking a page from the playbook of Hope, Arkansas' second-slickest politician, Bill Clinton. Could the stealth Marxist that the American-hating left has been counting on really be letting them down? Not a chance.

What few in the media understand is that in Obama's world, it matters not if gays are allowed in the military or if they're put in concentration camps. Likewise, he has very little interest in what happens in Iraq, Iran, North Korea, or with those pesky oil spills, the START treaty, or any other item that excites media pundits.

No, the thought that consumes all else in Obama's mind is his late father's statement that 100 percent taxation is justified. And why not? Barack Obama Sr. was a proud communist, and communism is 100 percent taxation.

It's important to understand that this is not a financial issue with Obama. He made that clear during one of the primary debates when Charlie Gibson, of all people, asked him – five times! – to explain why he would raise the capital-gains tax when the historical evidence proves that higher capital gains taxes actually lower government revenues.

Trapped by the facts, Obama finally said, "It's a matter of fairness." That's right – even if raising taxes doesn't help the poor, it's justified so long as it punishes "the rich." And there is little doubt in my mind that the Emperor of Envy who now occupies the White House remains committed to preaching the age-old, wealth-is-evil message of left-wing revolutionaries.

Which is why conservatives had better start manning up and challenging the premise that the wealthiest among us are fair game and start defending them on a moral basis. They have to understand that if you enter into an argument based on a false premise, you've already lost the argument.

When the Republican presidential candidates begin to step forward in the next few months, I'll be watching closely to see which ones, if any, have the courage to defend America's most oppressed minority, the wealthy. Will any of them be willing to explain that the wealthiest among us have the same natural rights as every other citizen?

The fact is, America needs more wealthy people, not less, because they are a sign of a healthy economy and, more important, a truly free nation.
