We've Bought The Farm....Obama Style
Now, similar in ideologies as Communist leaders past and present, President Obama is attempting to destroy another American institution: the American Farmer. By using taxes as a weapon, President Obama is attempting destroy and bankrupt the individual farmer so that the Socialists in the White House and Congress can promote the failed Marxist values of collectivism.
On January 1, 2013 President Obama and Congressional Democrats are hoping to reinstitute the infamous “Death Tax” that was temporarily abolished during the Bush Administration. They are hoping to destroy the tax cuts that helped to save American farmers a decade ago. We need your voice faxing Congress to stop this tragedy.
President Obama will tell you that his tax hikes are just for the wealthy who can “afford to pay a little bit more” (note: this is also called wealth redistribution and is a defining component of Socialism). What he won’t tell you is that he believes the American farmer should be shouldering the responsibility of his failed economic policies.
Want to know just how out of touch these Progressive Marxists are? Take a look at a quote from a liberal think tank called “OMB Watch”. The Director of Federal Fiscal Policy for OMB Watch is a Socialist by the name of Patrick Lester. Lester states “The idea behind the estate tax is to prevent the very wealthy among us from accumulating vast fortunes that they can pass along to the next generation". The Oval Office echoes Patrick Lester’s ignorance or denial of American private property rights.
It gets worse, Lester goes on to ignorantly states “The poster child for the estate tax is Paris Hilton -- the celebrity and hotel heiress. That's who this is targeted at, not ordinary Americans." According to the American Farm Bureau, 97% of all American farms will be subjected to the death tax being promoted by Mr. Lester and President Obama. Do you believe that Paris Hilton and farmers should be treated the same way?
President Obama just started his second term and has nothing to lose; now he can destroy his real enemies. The American farmer is the archetype for the America dream; it reminds us that with hard work anything is possible in a Capitalist Republic.
Obama is not a fan our democratic system within our constitutional republic; he has demonstrated this fact time and time again. It is only natural that he attacks farmers in the United States. Creating a death tax that will destroy the family farm and allowing the IRS to seize farmland sounds an awful lot like Communist nationalization; what will happen to the displaced farmers and the men and women they employ?
Whatever the motives of the President and the liberal elite in this country who look down at the family farmer, the outcome will be the same: the destruction to of the family farmer in the United States. Stand with us today and demand that Congress reauthorize the death tax, especially for farmers. We must fight collectivism and redistribution at the source. Every Marxist tax we destroy is another business that can grow, another job created and another family fed with food grown by a family farmer. Stand up for American ideals and values. Demand that Congress reauthorize the Bush-era death tax cuts!
