'You're-on-your-own economics'? Bring it on! ~ By Robert Ringer

The truth is that, throughout history, the vile left has never been interested in lifting people up. Instead of focusing on income inequality, their focus should be on setting people free – to be on their own! – to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.
Robert Ringer's column titillated my sincere desire to make sure that his writing is read by as many people as possible. This is about We the People knowing that the President is wrong about what needs to be done to help the American people, and Robert reinforces our knowledge of what has been going on in this country since President Obama came on the scene four years ago. We really wish more people had been aware of what then candidate Obama told "Joe the Plumber," that he wants to "spread the wealth around."

The scariest thing is that not only were people not listening and staying informed, but that they ignored the warning signs of what was to come in Obama's first three years. President Obama and his Marxist minions are of the belief that government can solve all of our problems. Conservatives believe that individual responsibility with laissez faire free market capitalism ultimately does better in the end: Every time. Why would anyone want to change how we do things that has helped America prosper in the past few centuries?

But as I read through the column several more times, I discovered another two paragraphs that influenced me to say something about what We the People can do to prove the President is wrong, and Robert Ringer is right:

No civilized person wants to see those who are seriously health challenged or mentally challenged suffer, so the question is not whether or not such people should be helped. The question is, who is best equipped to help them – politicians, whose chief aim is to perpetuate their own power, or free individuals, who have a genuine desire to be charitable to those who are incapable of fending for themselves?

If the scam of politicians taking from those who produce and giving the stolen loot to those whom they deem to be "in need" worked, the poverty rate would not be about the same today (14.3 percent) as it was when the Great Society was launched back in 1965. What Lyndon Johnson's "generosity" proved is that it doesn't matter how much of other people's money you give away, it does nothing to lift people up. The hard evidence shows that it is government's redistribution-of-wealth policies that have not worked.
No, we do not really need the government to be our nanny. And being that this is the Christmas season, this is the opportune time to make this proposal; there is never a better time to display the great generosity of the American people. YOU, not the government, can reach out to give less fortunate people assistance in many ways.

Hopefully, you have heard about the "pay it forward" events where people pay for the meal at a fast food establishment for the person in line behind them. It also recently came to the attention of the media that there have been anonymous donors that help out people that are trying to pay off a layaway purchase at various retail establishments.

We are aware of all the people with the financial capability that give large sums of money to many of the various charities and "causes." We even help out orphans around the world by funding or adopting them. America is still the most generous nation on the planet.

But, there is still the possibility that we could actually go a step further.

It is my belief that if every one of us that has the financial means, the time, and the opportunity to help out one other individual or family that is struggling along, there probably wouldn't be a need for government agencies to step in and spend the taxpayer's money on the many programs that have been instituted in order for us to gain some type of "collective salvation."

We the People really can prove that Robert Ringer is right, and Obama and his Marxist minions are wrong. We the People can make a concentrated effort to help lift up those that really could benefit from our assistance.

Between now and next November, and that really isn't too long from now, it is time to re-educate the American population, and counter all the lies that have been fed to the masses by those on the left in the schools, unions, the media, and most of all, the government. If We the People step up, we can make a very positive impact on what - or who - less fortunate people expect to come to their assistance.

Isn't it time that we start thinking about others? Our friends, our relatives, or our neighbors? Can you do something to help out somebody? I am sure you can. Even moral support can help. Let's take this country back from those that keep their power because they can take from those that have to give to give to people that don't have. WE the PEOPLE can do a much better job! I think that we can show that "You're-on-your-own economics" has worked, and always will.

It's time to learn and teach that is better to love your neighbor rather than the government. I'm just sayin'...

Oops! The presidential pretender went and did it again. A lot of red ink has passed over the socialist dam since he unthinkingly told Joe the Plumber that he wants to "spread the wealth around."

Or since he told Charlie Gibson that "It's a matter of fairness" when Gibson repeatedly asked him to explain why he would want to raise the capital-gains tax when the historical evidence proves that higher capital-gains taxes actually decrease government revenues.

Of course, there have been endless not-so-subtle clues as to Obama's impeccable collectivist credentials since then, but, on the whole, he tends to choose his words carefully so as not to awaken the sleeping frogs. One must always be mindful not to let the water get too hot.

But last week Obama let it all hang out in a speech at a Kansas high school when he said, "[T]here is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, 'Let's respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. The market will take care of everything,' they tell us. If we just cut more regulations and cut more taxes – especially for the wealthy – our economy will grow stronger."

Moving in for the kill, he went on to say, "And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. But here's the problem: It doesn't work. It has never worked. … I mean, understand, it's not as if we haven't tried this theory. We simply cannot return to this brand of you're-on-your-own economics if we're serious about rebuilding the middle class in this country."

That's right, folks, capitalism had nothing to do with the United States becoming the most prosperous country in the history of the world. It had nothing to do with millions of ambitious people starting with nothing and becoming millionaires and even billionaires. And it has nothing to do with the fact that "poor people" (as defined by the Census Bureau) in the U.S. live better than middle-class people in most other countries.

Don't be afraid!
