RON HART: Debunking Obama’s campaign themes

Published: Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 06:02 PM.

Lastly, Obama's other theme is that some are not “paying their fair share.” Twenty percent of Americans currently pay 94 percent of taxes. But, inexplicably, that is still not enough for this administration?

Government does not produce anything; it only impedes productivity. The only thing that government produces is more government, while taking money from the most productive parts of society and vilifying them as greedy in the process.

To endear yourself to the Obama administration, not only must you not be productive, you must demand that others pay your way. This is not the America I know. If you believe in freedom, be sure to vote and get your friends in Ohio, Wisconsin, Virginia and Florida to get to the polls too.
