Joe Biden is creepy and dangerous. He was picked by Obama to be the vice-president for two reasons: First, because he knew that Biden could not compete with him in the realm of public popularity. He needed a vice-president who would not upstage him. Biden was the perfect pick. The stooge that made the other guy look better
Second, Biden could make outrageous “crazy Joe” policy statements to prime the pump for Obama. He did it with the same-sex marriage issue, and now he’s doing it with income inequality.
He’s pushing ‘wealth emancipation.’ ‘Wealth emancipation” is a euphemism for “theft by majority vote.” Here’s what he’s said, all code words for more taxes, more spending, more government control, more poor people, and less liberty for everybody:
- “A lot of wealthy white and black people aren’t bad, but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand.”
- “It’s not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth. So let’s do something that’s worthy of emancipation.”
- “You know better than other groups that there is so much more to do. We find ourselves where a lot of disparities still exist.”
Let’s see, Hillary and Bill Clinton are worth around $100 million. Nancy Pelosi and her husband have a net worth of more than $50 million. John Kerry is worth nearly $200 million. Former Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, one of the poorest states, has a net worth of just over $100 million. These Democrats have had plenty of time to spread their wealth around.
They’ll get to keep their already accumulated wealth while they keep the rest of us from going up the economic ladder.
Biden went on to say:
“We have a chance right now and in the next two years to make a fundamental change in that equation. We have come from crisis to recovery and we’re in a position for a renaissance. . . . We know that 60 percent of jobs require a college education but middle class and poor folks have been left behind. That’s why we’re about changing the equation for working families in America and that’s why the president is focused on childcare to job training to college help and education to free community colleges. This is the way to change the equation and shame on us if we miss the opportunity.”
Biden and Obama have no interested in emancipating anybody. If they really believed in wealth emancipation, they would dramatically cut taxes. People with money would spend more, invest more, and risk more with the result that more people would be needed for jobs who in turn would add to the economy.
So-called Progressives (actually Regressives taking us back to slavery) need to keep people in a constant state of dependency.
The said thing is, the GOP is in the fetal position afraid to take a contrary position.
