Let's Try Obamanomics: Everyone is Equal
A Column by the Editor
web posted December 12, 2011
COLUMN – Though obviously a lesson in
futility, let's say that we make Obama a king for his last year in
office and he confiscates all the wealth in the country and then
"redistributes the wealth" to make all thinks "fair". Great idea isn't
it? We can all finally stick it those mean old rich people and make
them "pay their fair share" (obviously those few people earning in the
top "1%" are paying 38% of
all taxes collected isn't "fair" enough)
So, by decree of king Obama every bank account, every investment
portfolio, every retirement account, every single dollar is
confiscated. And, let's just try to imagine that Obama would not single
his cronies for special treatment - I know it laughable, but then every
single person is given their equally divided "fair share" of the wealth
Wait, if we are going to redistribute wealth we cannot forget about
debts too. After all, someone's debt has to be paid off and so wiping
out everyone's debt will be taken from the pool of "national wealth"
that has been seized before it is redistributed.
So the poor are a lot richer, the rich are a lot poorer, and the middle
class gets a boost as well.
Sound's great doesn't it? Utopia at last!
But, then comes the next day and people return to work to find the
companies have all closed. Those mean old rich people just shut the
now you don't have a job. How could they do that?
Well, since Obamanomics was imposed those mean old rich people aren't
rich anymore and they can't afford to run their companies, plants, or
manufacturing operations. The same goes for grocery stores and gas
stations. Unemployment sky rockets to 80%. But it is okay, because
everybody has the same amount of money.
Next the farmers go down. Who is going to pick the crops when the
worker just got handed all this money they didn't earn? The cost
of food goes up as well, but, hey, you have plenty of money so you are
not worried. The government made it all fair.
On the other hand, the drug dealers, now flush with cash, expand their
businesses and pick up some of the unemployed to help sell their
illegal drugs on the street. Pimps are hiring prostitutes at a record
pace and the bars are doing great, until the beer runs out because
those greedy rich capitalists running the breweries had to close
didn't have the money to operate anymore eaither.
Car sales get a great boost, until the cars run out for the same
Now, after this doomed experiment is over and Obama is dethroned, a
decade passes and slowly businesses start to return. Corporations being
to sprout anew. Farmers get back to work and life gets back to normal.
And, in the end, the rich will be rich again because they make the
right decisions, the poor are poor again because they make the wrong
decisions, and we are right back where we
So for anyone who wants to buy into Obama's class warfare campaign of
"fair share" and "tax the rich" and "redistribution of wealth" - In the
words of Ron White, "You just can't fix stupid."
Don't be stupid.
