    Trophy Points:
    Like many other definitions that have been rewritten by left-wingnuts over time, the term “general welfare” no longer means what it did when it was written in our Constitution and ratified by the colonies in 1789.

    As Thomas Jefferson once explained, “To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his father has acquired too much, in order to spare to others who have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, “to guarantee to everyone a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”

    The preamble to the Constitution establishes the goal of the effort as to; “establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

    Today’s limousine liberals insist that the term “general welfare” implies a Marxist view that the federal government has the duty and the power to “take from each according to his ability, and give to each according to his need,” - to define and measure out individual well-being against the will of some on behalf of others. This is not only very dangerous to the basic concepts of liberty and freedom; it is diametrically at odds with everything the founders formed.

    Target Taxing “the Rich”

    Aside from the fact that punitive taxation penalizes the most productive members of society and rewards the least productive, it won’t work. This is not a subject up for debate. This is very old news which has been beyond dispute for centuries.

    As a result, Jefferson, America’s best known liberal, stated it very clearly for future generations, - “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

    Jefferson’s point is this, - such an effort is not only punitive towards productivity; it is a “waste.” It won’t work. It is a “waste” of hard earned resources… in terms of simple economics. But that does not mean that the effort is without purpose. It has a political purpose.

    Obama’s Target

    The Obama campaign has been very clear about their intention to raise taxes on two specific target groups, “the rich” and “corporations.”

    According to their campaign, Obama defines “rich” as those households making above $250,000 in annual income, approximately the top 2% of income earners. They claim that this target group of U.S. citizens is “not paying their fair share” and that they must pay more in order to provide for the “general welfare” of others.

    Obama refers to this as “charity” – though charity is usually a private individual act which requires the consent of the giver.

    This is exactly what Jefferson said we should not and could not do. But Karl Marx is very much in favor of such a notion, and so is the Obama campaign and all of their voters who never fail to cast their votes on the basis of what their government can do for them in their personal lives.

    Class Warfare and Mob Mentality
    Defining “Fair Share”

    The Fundamental Lie called Corporate Taxation

    Back to the Drawing Board

    Once again we return to the topic of targeting America’s “rich.” They are an easy target. The “rich” have been a defenseless target of the left ever since FDR’s Raw Deal re-wrote the Constitutional definition of “general welfare.”

    If 2% of the nation’s population paying more than 60% of the nation’s federal taxes is not enough, what is enough?

    Would 2% of Americans paying 70% of the federal tab be enough? Would 80% be enough? Or are we simply working our way towards the top 2-5% paying 100% of the federal tab?

    This is Obamanomics 101 in a nutshell. It isn’t new, so it isn’t a change. It is more of the same.

    More of the same mob mentality, class warfare and punitive measures against our nation’s most productive and most defenseless citizens.

    2% of American citizens have no means of defending themselves against the will of the vast majority of modern voters who have been trained to believe that they have a right to the earnings of others. Democrats know this and it is their power.

    It is not enough to protect only yourself from continued affronts on individual freedom and liberty. You must be willing to protect and defend the freedoms and liberties of others in order to protect and preserve your own.

    What the mob can do to only 2% of your fellow citizens, they can also do to you. What Obamanomics can do to 2% of Americans, it can do to you, and eventually it will.

    Charity requires the consent of the giver. Give as much as you like. But taking from a few against their will in the name of the mob, is called tyranny.

    Do you really have any doubt about what Obamanomics represents?
