Obama Fails Basic Business Again

AWR Hawkins has written an article that clearly explains the error of Obama and his anti-business friends. Gauging Obama's Energy Policy is a master piece that tells it like it is. Set aside the emotional hype and open your mind to what is really being said.

Gauging Obama's Energy Policy

Barack Obama recently announced that if elected President, he would implement a “windfall profits tax” on oil companies to force them to “contribute a reasonable share” of their profits to American families burdened by high energy costs. The money would come to families via rebates, or “stimulus checks,” from the federal government. And while he was obviously proud of his big idea, Obama did not bother mentioning that the Democrat practice of putting socialism first, the environment second, and the American people third, is what brought us to the brink we now face over energy costs in the first place. He also remains mute on the fact that the rebates really aren’t rebates at all, and will result in higher prices at the pump once they are issued.
Throughout his campaign for the presidency, Obama has remained aligned with the hard left because he is hard left. This is why he was so popular in Europe and why he drew much bigger crowds in Germany than he does in the United States; socialists love to hear another socialist stand up and verbally gouge out the eyes of the world’s “greediest” nation.
And now, he is talking to us as if we are European. He tells us about the unacceptable greed of “big oil” and tries to convince us to join him in his quest to take their profits and redistribute them among the people. But we are not quite European, Senator Obama, and those of us who live where we still see cowboys on horseback rounding up cattle are not overly impressed with what socialism has taken from Europeans in terms of personal liberty and national security. We actually treasure the rugged independence of the great men and traditions of this nation. Men like George Washington, Ronald Reagan, and the American soldier, and traditions such as limited government and the free market.

So, the Obamanation believes that treating ALL people as stockholders (by giving all of us a cut of the profits) even if they hold no stock in the oil company is a good thing?

Can we also ask that all Senators share in their windfalls from their investments and business strategies, their salaried incomes from their positions, and a general cut of their savings as well?

Yeah, didn't think so.
