As if we need yet another reminder that the rest of the world favors socialism, The BBC released the results of a worldwide survey that further drove the last nail into that coffin. After surveying over 21,000 people from countries all across the globe–except the US–the results are definitive. If the presidential election were held on a global scale, Barack Obama would win by a whopping 41 percentage points.
So, what does all of this mean? It means a lot. Firstly, I am very happy that people outside the United States cannot vote in our elections. Second, it seems to confirm the obvious fact that our president is a socialist. Yes, a socialist.
Right from the start, Barack Obama, has made remarks and implemented policy that clearly indicates a socialist leaning. Remember back in 2008, when Obama told Samuel Wurzelbacher–popularly known as “Joe the Plumber”–that he simply wanted to “spread the wealth around?” That was only the beginning.
By shoving Obamacare down America’s collective throat, claiming that it would be “budget neutral,” Obama implemented his largest socialist agenda to date. In the end, as anyone who knows basic economics will tell you, Obamacare substantially raises taxes on the middle class, while also lowering the standard of care in the long run. For examples, look to Canada, Cuba, and Europe.
By picking pet industries to directly invest in, such as Solyndra, and by bailing out the auto-industry, rather than letting them move through a self induced, structured bankruptcy, Obama has continued his quest to create a great American nanny state. By the way, GM still owes taxpayers $25 billion, which I assume we’ll never see. I could go on, but I think those examples are sufficient.
So, what does this mean for Americans? This means that we all pay more in order to receive less. They say that it is for the good of everyone, but in the end it benefits no one. When boiled down, that is the core of socialist doctrine. As Margaret Thatcher said: “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money.”
So let’s all let out a collective sigh of relief. We can finally call Obama what he is: a socialist. Just don’t tell the media.
In all seriousness, what does this survey truly reveal? A lot. It tells us that the United States is the last great capitalist country. And it tells us that most of the rest of the civilized world is socialist or semi-socialist. But more than anything else, it’s a warning.
Do we want to emulate France? They just levied a 75% tax on the “wealthy.”
Do we want to be like England? They are having riots over entitlement cuts.
Do we want to end up like Greece? They are bankrupt, and currently overwhelmed by rioting factions.
Of course, the answer to all of these questions is NO. So, what is the last thing that this survey tells us? It tells us that socialist countries love our president. That is truly troubling news for this country, and a warning of great importance.
If we don’t want to fall down the same rabbit hole as Europe, we must vote out Barack Obama.
