Obama has no appreciation for free market system

July 13, 2011

Those who dismiss President Obama’s charisma and charm are only fooling themselves. He does have these talents, and in some ways, they are good assets for a president. But if a con man didn’t have these traits, he couldn’t make a dime trying to sell someone what they didn’t need or want at a ridiculously high price.

What is Obama trying to get us to buy with his anti-business and socialist rhetoric? He seems to have no concept or appreciation for the free market system, which has been our key to prosperity.

To blame President Bush for our bad economy is getting quite stale. Remember when Bush was in power, our unemployment rate was one-half what it is today. It was that way until 2006, when Reid and Pelosi came more to the scene, and it seemed that our most liberal senator, Barack Obama, might join them as president. Wouldn’t this frighten any business, small or large, from expanding and adding jobs?

    Okay. then let it be a completely free market system.

    That means the farmers get no tax incentives or subsidies.

    The oil industry would get no tax subsidies.

    There would be no loopholes in the corporate tax system.

    Would you like me to go on?

    I think what you mean about an honest free market system is that corporations should be able to do whatever they want and not have to pay taxes.
