Obama doesn't care about infrastructure or improving the disastrous unemployment numbers he's fueling. These are not what float his Marxist boat. Stimulus Jr. isn't about creating more economic demand, which it wouldn't do anyway. Like Stimulus Sr., it's about pressing forward with his nefarious scheme to restructure America in his image.
It would be bad enough if these boondoggles were just grab bags of political payoffs, money laundering, redistribution and colossal waste. But they're also designed to create more government programs that will self-perpetuate.
Through Stimulus Jr., Obama would create a massive new bureaucracy to administer the nightmare -- a bureaucracy that would not wither away when the program is completed, any more than Marx's government would wither away after the "dictatorship of the proletariat."
Why is it so hard for some people to grasp that neither government tax and regulatory roadblocks against economic growth nor massive wealth redistribution programs improve the plight of lower- and middle-income groups? When will a greater percentage of blacks realize that liberal prescriptions harm rather than improve their economic conditions? When will they realize they are being exploited and injured by the very leaders who say they are the only ones who care about them?
These demagogues had better hope minorities and lower- and middle-income groups never systematically study the damning results of their policies. Obama scapegoats Republican obstruction for the failure of his policies, but no matter how hard he dissembles, he had his way the first two years of his term.
Nevertheless, he persists. On the next stop on his propaganda tour, Obama told his audience that the 2012 election will be even more important than the one in 2008. It will be "a contest of values."
Finally, there's something we can all agree on. It will indeed be a contest of values. Unfortunately for Obama, recent polls show that essentially half the American people fear his beloved federal government.
So let's get ready to rumble.
