What we are reading today is that the economy, although supposedly showing real but slow growth, is not growing enough. We are told that although unemployment has been reduced, it has not been reduced enough. We are told we are in recovery, even though it is the slowest recovery in history. This is despite the trillion dollar stimulus package of five years ago, a massive increase in national debt and the Federal Reserve increasing the money supply by unheard of numbers.
When we listen to Obama’s henchmen, they sing the praises of this recovery and then qualify those praises by explaining it is not what they want. It cannot be what anybody wants. These same people advocate regulating out of existence the very industries that provide jobs and innovation. These same people advocate taking investment dollars from innovative and profitable industries and companies and put these same dollars into politically correct companies that are doomed to failure for many reasons including inept management that is receiving federal funds as payback for political contributions and favors.
The ideas put forth by these henchmen are the same polices that have failed for years. Their number one answer is more government. Then they say we must punish achievers. We are told we must find ways to help more people work less so they can find their inner peace. And of course, the biggest job killer and growth detractor, Obamacare, is continued. All the programs and policies favored by Obama, head of the regime and Marxist/Progressives are the reasons growth is not what they say they want. The reality is however, this slow growth or no growth is exactly what Obama wants. After all, Marx explained economic growth must be at the pace of population growth. If economic growth is faster than population growth, the difference just goes to the evil achiever who will then be in a position to bring about more social injustice, more income inequality and more exploitation. Obama, being a Marxist, cannot allow that to happen.
