“The Problem With Elitism”

Part 2 of the Bill Whittle ‘FireWall’ series speaking about Tea Party core beliefs. I am reposting the first segment for those that may not have seen it the first time around.

What We Believe, Part 1: Small Government and Free Enterprise

What We Believe, Part 2: The Problem with Elitism

About Ted Kennedy:

Who descended from the bluest blood of all, never had a job that didn’t entail spending other peoples’ money, and creating the rules and regulations that other people had to live by. What is it about all of this that seems vaguely and unpleasantly familiar? Smells a little bit like a ruling class, doesn’t it?

Scott Brown’s Numbers Have Moved Into Single Digits

Scott Brown’s Numbers Have Moved Into Single Digits

Rasmussen is reporting this morning that Martha, “I love SEIU and Obamacare”, Coakley is leading Scott Brown by 9 percentage points, down from 11 points a week ago. The online blogging campaign is have an impact, and although a Scott Brown win is still a longshot currently, that could change by the January 19, 2010 special election.

Election 2010: Massachusetts Special Senate Election

2010 Massachusetts Senate: Coakley 50%, Brown 41%

State Attorney General Martha Coakley holds a nine-point lead over her Republican rival, state Senator Scott Brown, in Massachusetts’ special U.S. Senate election to fill the seat of the late Edward M. Kennedy.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Coakley ahead of Brown 50% to 41%. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

The special Senate election will be held on January 19 and special elections typically feature low turnout. That’s one reason the race appears to be a bit closer than might typically be expected for a Senate race in Massachusetts. Kennedy carried 69% of the vote when he was reelected in 2006.

Coakley, who was elected attorney general in 2006, defeated several other candidates to win her party’s nomination in a December 8 Primary. Brown, who has served in the State Senate since 2004, won the GOP Primary the same day.

The health care issue is expected to play a big role in the debate and Massachusetts voters hold modestly favorable attitudes about the proposed legislation. In the Bay State, 53% favor the plan working its way through Congress and 45% oppose it.

However, as is the case nationally, those who feel strongly about the bill are more likely to be opposed. The overall figures include 36% who Strongly Oppose the plan while 27% Strongly Favor it.

Why is healthcare so important?  Martha Coakley is FOR Obamacare and Scott Brown is AGAINST Obamacare.  Considering the low voter turnout effect and the energized republican base (who will turnout to vote), Brown could actually pull a win off and be the first Republican in Dead Kennedy’s seat since JFK.

The  Money Bomb for Scott Brown is on January 11th, and the pledge site is here.

To join Scott’s Brigade network and make volunteer phone calls, from any state, go here.

Time to put your money and time where your mouth is folks and donate and make calls for the candidate that can stop Obamacare by taking away Harry Reid’s 60 seat filibuster proof majority in the Senate.

Aristocrat Ted Kennedy’s “Let Them Eat Cake” Moment

Aristocrat Ted Kennedy’s “Let Them Eat Cake” Moment

Ted Kennedy is receiving the “Congressional Let Them Eat Cake” Award today for trying to have his cake and eat it too.  Ted is also receiving this award because he seems to have adopted that aristocratic attitude which says, “I can do anything I want, whenever I want, to whomever I want.”

Ailing Ted Kennedy asks for speedy replacement process

In a stunning admission of his frailty, an ailing U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is asking the governor and legislative leaders to rewrite state law to allow for a temporary gubernatorial appointment to his seat.

In the letter, Kennedy asks that legislation be passed to change a law adopted in 2004 to provide for a special election to choose a new U.S. Senator in the event of a vacancy.

The law was pushed through during the 2004 presidential election because state lawmakers wanted to prevent then-Gov. Mitt Romney from appointing a successor for U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry, who was the Democratic presidential nominee.

Kennedy pushed for that law and he understands how much havoc his open seat would play with Bambi’s Borg moment on healthcare, and how a special election might not swing to the Dems considering how upset “the angry mob” actually is right now.

Here is one more little tidbit to think about in relation to previous articles on the borg absorption of our banks, car companies, and now healthcare; the infamous pie charts.  Remember, government is a consumer, not a producer.

From Grandfather Government

Pie1930PICTURE #1 – pre-1930

Picture #1: Look at the left chart.

7 decades ago, when many of today’s senior citizens were children, just 12% of the economic pie was dependent upon GOVERNMENT (the red slice of the pie).

Restated, 12% of national income was consumed by government spending back then.

This left 88% of the pie to the productive PRIVATE sector (blue pie slice).

At that time the private sector was 7.3 times larger than the government share.

America WAS 88% FREE and 12% socialistic.

Pie1947PICTURE #2 – post World War II

NOW, watch the non-productive government share in the left chart double to 22% of the economy, from the prior 12% share. (the red slice got bigger),

and note the remaining portion left to the productive private sector has been squeezed out of 10 points, compared to the previous chart.

That 10 point swing was mostly attributed to government getting into the ‘socialized spending business’, starting with the ‘New Deal’

– – basically going into the social business, an area never envisioned by our founding forefathers as a reason for forming a federal government..

At this point, the private sector was about 4 times larger than government – – well below its prior 7 times larger ratio of the first chart.

America was 78% FREE and 22% socialistic. (instead of 88% free and 12% socialistic in the first chart).

Pie2008NOW, look at the left chart for today.

the government sector (red color) doubled its share again –

from 22% of the economic pie in 1947 to 45% of the economy today,

shrinking the private sector share (blue color) of the economy an extra 21 points – – caused by even more expanded socialistic spending (not intended by our nation’s founders), at rates many times faster than growth of the general economy.

Now the productive private sector (having lost 28 points) is not much bigger than the government-controlled share of the economy;

a long fall from its prior position of being from 5 to 7.3 times larger than government.

American has become 45% socialistic, leaving only 55% FREE, a tremendous move from the first chart of 12% socialistic and 88% free.

That last pie chart is from 2008.  I would be willing to bet that the ratio is well reversed from 45/55 – and Barack wants to add 1/7th of our economy in the form of healthcare dollars to that chart.

I suggest you send these pie charts far and wide so that the Not-So-Silent-Anymore Majority fully understands what is at stake.

Are we going to allow the american idol-in-chief and the traitors in the House and Senate to permanently flip this country from capitalism to socialism?

I think not.
