While arguing for a large increase in the minimum wage, Barack Obama recently said:
Across the developed world, inequality has increased. … But this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people. …
Obama called this perceived need to address the allegedly growing income inequality as the
defining challenge of our time.
We know Obama only too well, and so we also know that the challenge, in Obama’s reasoning, is how to impose communism, redistribution, and income equality on nearly everyone in the USA (with the elite like himself excepted).
One brilliant resident of the USA responded to Obama in a particularly pithy, Twitter-worthy manner. Bob Boles of Missouri wrote:
Who wants to live in a world where hard work, education and taking risks lead to the same income as everybody else?
Who, indeed? The Pilgrims quickly realized that they didn’t want to live in such a New World.
Why hasn’t Obama absorbed and embraced one of the most important lessons ever learned on the soil of our future Republic?
