"GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME so vast and impersonal," the presidential challenger asserted, "that its interests diverge more and more from the interests of ordinary citizens. For a generation and more, the government has sought to meet our needs by multiplying its bureaucracy. Washington has taken too much in taxes from Main Street, and Main Street has received too little in return. It is not necessary to centralize power in order to solve our problems."
“I said we’d refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11—and today, al-Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” (U.S. President Barack Obama, October 11, 2012.)
Capitalism favors the rich. Socialism helps the poor. These are core beliefs of almost everybody on the left, including our president. Ah, but it turns out that this worldview is completely wrong.

Maybe Democrats have some slick salesmen, like Bill Clinton and our current president, who can sell you swampland and have you convinced that you’ve bought choice beachfront property.
But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven. (Matthew 10:33) Are you a believer? I’m not asking if you’re a Democrat, a Republican or an independent. I’m asking if you believe in God.
Anybody slightly to the right politically of Arlen Specter has been struggling to define the freak show that was the just concluded Democrat Party Convention in Charlotte.
Well into Wednesday afternoon Democrat officials were defending the revised platform as reflecting Obama's policy positions including the Administration's established unwillingness to support Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
