Oh, Wayne Root, you did a fabulous compendium of what’s been going on in the Obama Administration. This is fantastic. Find the original and his call to action here.
If you want government to take over business…banks…automakers…Wall Street…the healthcare industry…literally highjack the entire economy…all so you can “spread the wealth around”…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think it’s perfectly fine to abandon capitalism after a couple of unprofitable years among 230 successful and highly profitable years…but you want to replace it with a big government that has NEVER had a single profitable year ever…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think it’s just fine and dandy for government to decide CEO salaries…to hire and fire CEO’s… and pick the Board of Directors of private companies…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think the CEO’s of private companies have no right to fly in private jets, but it’s okay for Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress to fly nonstop on private jets…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think that Congress should allocate hundreds of millions of extra dollars to the IRS to go after tax cheats in the business world…but your entire administration is filled with tax cheats- including the guy in charge of America’s taxes (Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner)…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think it’s okay to give all the rights under our American constitution to the terrorists who murdered 3000 Americans…but you never even thought to give those same rights to the bondholders, shareholders and investors of Chrysler and GM (who were first in line as secured creditors) when you stole the company from them and awarded it to the unions…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think it’s okay to meet face to face with the worst murderers and terrorist leaders and supporters in the world without preconditions because it’s important to always keep the lines of communication open…but you refuse to ever meet or even bother listening to the concerns of conservatives or Republicans here in America…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you think 32 czars appointed without Congressional scrutiny or oversight…can run the American economy by committee- even though few if any have ever run a business in their lives…and if you think it’s okay to appoint a car czar who admits publicly he knows NOTHING about cars…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you want to give as much as $100 billion dollars of taxpayer money to GM and Chrysler just so they can go BANKRUPT anyway…just so you can hand the company to the unions that bankrupted them in first place…and keep hundreds of thousands of grossly overpaid union workers employed…all because those unions contributed millions of dollars to your campaign…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
AND YOU ARE CERTAINLY CORRUPT.
If you think it’s OK for government to tell GM and Chrysler what kind of cars to build…what size…what gas mileage…what style…even if those “green cars” can never make a profit…even if consumers don’t want to buy them…even if the taxpayers will lose $100 billion dollars on your bad ideas…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
If you want to pass Cap and Trade and convert America to a “green economy” to create millions of jobs…even though Spain is the greenest economy in all of Europe…and they have 18% unemployment, the highest in all of socialist Europe…YOU MAY BE A SOCIALIST.
