The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.
The America that works and the America that doesn’t.
The America that contributes and the America that doesn’t.
It’s not the haves and the haven't; it’s the dos and the don’ts.
Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country. It’s not invective, it’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.
The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when president Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.
That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.
That is the philosophy that produced Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.
America is not divided by the differences in outcomes, it is divided by the differences in efforts. It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization. The Democrats have not empowered their followers; they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victimhood and anger instead of ability and hope. What Obama offered was not a solution, but separatism. He has fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer.
Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
Divide and conquer. It’s working.
