Don’t believe the Democratic Party’s ‘emotional illusions’

Published 7:03 pm Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Democrats are now using your Social Security as an emotional issue. Here comes a new wave of “Republicans want to take away your Social Security.” Lacking a leadership record to run on, Obama and the Democrats are now “emotion driven.” They believe 2012 voters will react more to emotional issues than truth, logic and facts. These people are not about facts; they are about creating an illusion of facts! And the worst part about it is there are voters who believe these illusions!

Look at some things that Democrats have done with your Social Security money. President Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically-controlled House and Senate borrowed or took away your Social Security money from the Social Security Trust Fund, replaced it with I.O.U.’s and put your money in the general fund so that they could spend your money on Democrat vote-getting programs. They took and spent your money and you got an I.O.U.! Reminds me of a line in a popular country song: “She got the mine, I got the shaft.”

The Democratic Party started the taxing of your Social Security benefits. Vice President Al Gore cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate. Over the past years, Democrat leadership has found other ways to use your Social Security money.

Obama has created the illusion that he truly represents the middle class — the working class. Alert! What Obama is gradually doing is robbing the middle class to give more to the poor! Obama’s aim is to gradually, through taxes and government controls, eliminate the middle class, who are the majority voters. Then, he owns the poor vote through continued government give-away programs. True or false? Possible or not possible? You decide.

Question for the day: Why do so many Democrats put such blind faith in Obama to decide what is fair?
