As if we needed more proof that President Obama believes that Americans cannot survive without the big Federal government leading them down the path of life, the Obama/Biden 2012 Presidential Campaign has fabricated The Life of Julia. The story invites us to "Take a Look at How President Obama's Policies Help One Woman Over Her Lifetime - and How Mitt Romney Would Change Her Story".
If you go to the site, you'll meet Julia, who apparently has no parents, siblings, husband, or anyone for that matter, except her little illegitimate baby. You can follow Julia throughout her life from childhood to old age and see how she survives on the goodwill of the Federal government.
Over the past 3-1/2 years the Obama Administration has put policies into effect that have set up The Life of Julia scenario as a model for what Americans should "aspire" to...being on the dole. Progressives know that the more people depending on the Federal government assures them more votes. The sad fact is that many in America are now in that position and will be motivated to ensure Obama receives another 4 years. And the sadder fact is that as time goes on, more and more people will fall into this rut which will ensure the Left remains in power into the future. You shouldn't bite the hand feeds you.
Obama thinks Americans don't have "unrealistic" ambitions (like gaining wealth, I suppose):
``If you're willing to put in the work, the idea is that you should be able to raise a family and own a home; not go bankrupt because you got sick, because you've got some health insurance that helps you deal with those difficult times; that you can send your kids to college; that you can put some money away for retirement,'' Obama said recently in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.There's nothing wrong with being safe and comfortable in life without achieving the riches of say, Barack & Michelle Obama. In America we are free to work hard and achieve whatever we want to in life. But for Obama to discourage American citizens with words like those above is appalling. It's a sure fire way to keep them under-achieved and more dependent on the Federal government than they should ever have to be.
``That's all most people want,'' he said. ``Folks don't have unrealistic ambitions. They do believe that if they work hard they should be able to achieve that small measure of an American Dream.''
The unfortunate fact is that more Americans than ever before are dependent on the Federal government for financial assistance. Is Mitt Romney the right person to start leading us back from the path the Obama Administration has led us down? Who knows? But there is one thing I do know...we cannot allow Barack Obama to remain in office for another term. With Romney there's a chance to start pulling ourselves out of this mess. With Obama...there's no turning back.
