“Property is the fruit of labor…property is desirable…is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.” ~Abraham Lincoln
I found this quote and it resonated with me regarding this election. Soak on it for a while and then think on Obama's platform. I probably wouldn't even be considered "middle class" in income, but I can see how Obama's plan will hurt our economy in incredible way. The stock market ebbs & tides based on projections and inference. Fear is a big motivator of the markets' slumps. "Big business" is what fuels those ebbs & tides and when they are facing major financial crises, you can BET the market will see a drop of momentous portion. If the "upper class" (250K and up) start to get hit with increased taxes AND mandatory health care standards, that wallop will be felt, first, in the lower income brackets, because we will be the ones losing jobs to make up the difference.
There is a problem with our country's economy. Obama is not the answer. He will be, essentially, cutting off the arms of the people bailing the most amount of water from the sinking boat. Not to mention that he refuses to answer the question of when he thinks a baby receives the rights of a human. His answer is that it is, "above his pay grade". This President will, quite possibly, have 4 Supreme Court resignations to replace. The person making those appointments should have an answer to that question. I agree with Dobson's reply when he said that if Senator Obama thought that this question was "above his pay grade", then perhaps the job is as well.
