Fairy Tale Candidate

Here is a great article written by a friend that points out some of the complete fairy tale claims by Obama. The biggest one being his statement that under his economic plan 96% of the American people will get a tax cut. The problem with that is only 68% of filers actually pay taxes. That doesn't stop Obama though b/c his tax rebates aren't dependent on actually paying taxes. Once again it is taking from those who pay taxes and giving to those who don't, Robin Hood welfare.

I'm not saying we don't have a responsibility to take care of the poor and those in need, but it is OUR responsibility to do that and not the government's to mandate it. When the government does it, we pay for things that we don't agree with like government sponsored healthcare abortions.

spot on you rajun' cajun!

the Government is not responsible for teaching Americans morals; that's the Church's job (and one that we have failed miserably at over the past 60 years!).
