The Myth of Obama's Centrism

Obama is in the process of completely " Nationlizing " wealth . Not by the old fashioned way of leftist dictators , starting with industry , but by laying claim to the earnings of everyone . People find it much easier to get the necessities from government then work for the same amount of money . The graduated incometax makes it prohibitive to build Capital , so "Capitalism doesn't work " . Unless a person has something special to offer ( sports, science , entertainment .....) he/she can't get ahead . The Flat , or better , the Fair Tax could be the answer , but those would take the power away from the politicians and give it back to the people .
Barack Obama's quest for a "balanced approach" is the lifeblood of his political success -- and also its biggest myth. Witness the coverage of the purportedly centrist president's 2014 budget proposal.

"Obama sends Congress $3.77T spending plan, riles both sides," says one prominent headline; "President Obama's risky 'goodwill' gambit," begins another fairy tale. "Obama Budget Is Meant to Draw GOP to the Table," claims The New York Times.

Nearly every story stresses that the budget has drawn critics from both the left and the right. Obama, you see, is so moderate he's willing to wrangle with the socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders...
