…and John McCain for that matter.
The biggest socialisation in American history happened the day that $700Bn was approved by the US government. That was under a Republican president – John McCain, in case you have forgotten, is a Republican – and a maverick that isn’t, quite, what other people call a maverick – because he voted FOR the bail-out package. So did Barack Obama – but we have to look at the new McCarthy attack ploy by John McCain – the man is an idiot!
Do Americans what McCarthy in the White House? Some do – but not most.
Palin – in her enthusiastic, and pathetic, way is spouting that Barack Obama is a socialist. Now – I come from England, England is in Europe – and believe me – Barack Obama is about as socialist as Colin Powell, who endorsed Obama on Sunday. Part of his endorsement was:
“Taxes are always a redistribution of money. Most of the taxes that are redistributed go back to those who pay them — in roads and airports and hospitals and schools,” President Bush’s former secretary of state said. “And taxes are necessary for the common good, and there’s nothing wrong with examining what our tax structure is or who should be paying more, who should be paying less.
“For us to say that makes you a socialist, I think, is an unfortunate characterization that isn’t accurate.”
That is political speak for ‘John McCain and his running mate are telling lies’. You don’t say that stuff in government circles – that is why, or at least, one of the reasons the common man/woman feels that government is detached.
I agree with many that it would be nice for politicians to speak in a common tongue – but that is another story.
This one is about Sarah Palin and John McCain trying to clinch a victory by utilising all the buzz words that scare the living crap out of Americans. Why are Americans not educated in such things? That is pretty simple to answer, because those same politicians – especially wing-nuts – don’t want you to know what they are talking about.
John McCain and Sarah Palin are talking about ‘redistribution of wealth’. OK – let’s look at that socialist thinking right in the face – even though it is a much broader subject than ‘redistribution of wealth’, in socialism you have the redistribution of production as well – and with the American economy in the tank as it is now – I will bet my last dollar there are thousands of ‘Joe six-packs’ saying they could have done a better job of the running a factory than the bosses they had.
John McCain is invoking Joe – we all, by now know that Joe isn’t who he is – but still…Taxes – Americans have been paying taxes for a long, long time – where do you think those taxes go? Into a pot to be redistributed all over the country – amazing, eh? So that, which you have been paying for, like, totally, forever, man – has been – using McCain and Palin’s logic, socialism. So is John McCain a socialist? He has been in Congress a little while shorter than Joe Biden!
Sarah Palin is a real socialist, then. She – as I have said on this blog before – so much into socialism she hands out Alaskan checks all the time – she even said so, with great glee I may add, that she did do this on one of the few, few interviews that she has done.
She taxes the oil and gas companies and guess what – redistributes a companies wealth out to Alaskans. What is laughable is that the wing-nuts agree with this – that is more like socialism than collecting taxes to run a country as large as the USA – but nothing is said about it – even more amazing, eh?
So we have to ask John “McCarthy” McCain ‘Should your very own running-mate be investigated (a long with all the other investigations she is going to have) for being un-American and a socialist?’
The answer is no – because, as John McCain and Sarah Palin are Republicans they cannot be socialists – it’s impossible. Well – Colin Powell is a Republican – so his backing of Barack Obama means he can’t be wrong either!
You have to love Sarah Palin because she is cute, can’t dance, wears make-up and is a bit dumb!
Anything else – well, you just have to look at her and realise she is screwing up McCain’s campaign – probably because she (I laugh here) wants to run for office in a few years time – good luck with that Ms Palin, you really don’t know how you are going to be blamed for McCain not getting into office.
