President Obama frequently urges U.S. citizens to expand government programs to aid the poor and downtrodden while preaching that "We are our brother's keeper," yet the multi-millionaire cannot find the time to spare some change for his impoverished half-brother who could not afford his son's medical costs.
The hypocrisy is plain, so I will not go into detail elaborating on it. Suffice to say that his actions make it clear that he is less interested in helping the poor than he is in restructuring the federal government into a powerhouse with greater control of citizens (most easily visible through the tax increases. More Money = More Control) and buying votes from the mindless millions that depend on government aid for their monthly income.
Liberals always say that conservatives do not care about the poor, but it is interesting to note that it was the conservative Dinish D'Souza who paid for President Obama's nephew's healthcare and not the leader of the free world and champion of the poor and needy, Barack Obama.
The small government view says that individuals can usually take care of themselves, but in times of need, private charities, including generous individuals, will be there to lend a hand.
The big government view says that all you have to do is give your money to Uncle Sam (or more often, take money away from someone richer than you and give it to good old Uncle), and you can forget about any personal responsibility. The government will take care of things for you.
Sure the government will take care of it. Politicians have always proven themselves generous and trustworthy.
