Are the Republicans allowing President Obama to define the issues in the
fiscal-cliff debate? President Obama desperately would like to keep the
focus on taxes when the most severe problem is spending. It must be
emphasized that you can tax the top 2 percent at 100 percent and you
would still have a gigantic fiscal problem.
Until we the people understand this, our president will continuously manipulate many by appealing to the politics of envy. He clearly understands that virtually anyone, with the exception of the righteous individual, would want to take from someone else, rather than themselves. For a leader to stoke the fires of division among his constituency is nothing less than treason and the deleterious effects are becoming more manifest each day.
