…I don’t like his economic policies. I don’t believe this country needs socialized health care. I don’t believe in further taxing people that already pay at least 90% of the taxes in this country (“the rich”). I don’t believe in redistribution of wealth (look up socialism folks, that’s what it means). I don’t believe that we should tax companies for being profitable (that’s punishing success).
It really upsets me that people assume that a lot of people are not voting for Obama because he is black. Do we really believe that the large majority of people are that ignorant? Are there people out there that are that ignorant? Yes, there are. But to just assume that people who aren’t voting for Obama are doing so based on race, that seems far more ignorant.
You want people to “look at the issues” and when they do and decide that they don’t like your candidate, you decide they must be “racist” and nothing could be further from the truth for people.
Obama wants to take the rich and profitable corporations more and then give that money back to what he’s calling the “middle class” and call me ignorant if you’d like but that sounds exactly like “redistribution of wealth” which is socialism. So excuse me, if as someone who actually works and makes a decent wage, I’m a little upset that I’m going to be taxed further, and have my money goto people who make less than me or don’t have a job at all. Kiss my white, hard working, American rear-end if you think that I’m racist because I believe that since I actually work for my money I should get to keep as much of it as possible rather than give it to those that can’t be bothered to learn a trade, get an education, or even just simply get a job.
And for those that want to tell me that this country is already socialist, yes I’m aware that things like welfare make the United States a somewhat socialist state. However, we’re no where near other countries in this world. I would simply like to avoid seeing someone get into office that wants to make this country more socialist than it already is or needs to be.
All you people who think Obama is going to “save the middle class from those evil rich bastards” better get a wake up call. If you tax a profitable corporation for simply being success full and having high profits, you better expect that those same companies will raise their prices (which directly effects the middle class) to cover those new taxes. So great, you taxed the “evil” corporation for making a lot of money, but you have caused the middle class to have to pay more for whatever product that “evil” corporation is selling. So you’ve in a sense accomplished nothing.
People who wish to vote for Obama need to really sit down and think about how economics and taxes really work. They also need to do some research. If they did, they’d realize that “the rich” already pay the largest part of the taxes collected yearly in the United States. They’d also realize that Obama’s plans are the very definition of socialism (the redistribution of wealth). Of course, I can understand how that’s hard to see when he says a whole bunch of pretty things in his speeches.
Footnote: I don’t really like McCain for president either. So before you go telling me I’m brainwashed, or racist, or a McCain-ite, understand that if I vote for McCain it will simply be because he is what I consider to be the lesser of two evils and no other reason. (I wonder how many people will see this note since it’s at the bottom, rather than reading the first 2 paragraphs and blasting me in the comments)
