Remember when Mitt Romney stated that 47% of Americans, “…believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it?” It turns out ol’ Mitt knew what he was talking about because he has been vindicated.
A video is making the rounds in the alternative media where a black lady in Cleveland goes crazy for supporting Obama because he gives them stuff. More specifically, she was very happy to have received her “Obama phone”- a phone that you and I are paying for.
So, perhaps the liberal media can tell us some more about Romney’s mischaracterization of Democratic voters?…
In the video, a black woman is protesting outside a Romney rally in Cleveland, Ohio, and she proudly proclaims her support for Obama. She enumerates her thought-out reasons for voting for Obama: (Please bear with me, my Ebonics is a bit rusty.)
“Everybody in Cleveland low minority got Obama phone! Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone. He gon’ do more!”
Well, there you have it, Obama should be “in” president because he gives minorities “Obama phone.”
For those who are curious, the “Obama phone” is a phone paid for by the taxpayers. The official website claims,
“The free Obama phone is a program that is meant to help the financially unstable who cannot afford access to a cell phone. Communication should not be limited to people in relation to what they are able to afford.”
I will fork over the money gladly if anyone can point out to me where in the Constitution it says that having a cell phone is a right. Furthermore, the program is also exploring the possibility of offering free wireless internet service to those that cannot afford it.
When asked how does one get their Obama phone, she unashamedly stated,
“You sign up, if you on food stamps, if you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability.”
Sure. That makes sense. Government is already taking care of the dregs of society from cradle to grave in exchange for their votes, why not give them phones so that they can stay in touch. It’s not like they can catch up around the water cooler or at the company picnic…
When asked what was wrong with Romney, she cleverly retorted, “He sucks! Bad!”
So, let’s recap; Romney stated that Democrats are giving goods and services to the non-taxpayers of society as a means of obtaining votes. Despite the evident truth in his statement, the Obama Administration and their lackeys in the liberal media have spun this statement into some dismissive message. Now, we have an Obama supporter, proudly proclaiming that she supports Obama because he gives them “free” stuff, and where is the media? I’m getting the feeling that we will not be seeing too many mea copas coming from the leftists in the media.
We are reaching a breaking point; the gravy train has to stop. The Democratic Party’s “election strategy” has been bleeding the nation dry for decades, and now is the tipping point. We need fiscal accountability in office and a president concerned with the producers of society.
I leave you with one of my favorite quotes. It is a quote of ambiguous authorship, but most often attributed to Alexander Tytler, an 18th century Scottish Lawyer and political theorist. It goes,
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
UPDATE: FOX News now reports that thanks to this video, lawmakers are sitting up to take notice of the ridiculousness of this program. Sure, it would have been nice if the lawmakers knew where our moneh was going to beging with, but hey, it’s better late than ever. Thanks for bringing this to everyone’s attention, crazy welfare queen!
