Obama Thinks He’s Just Like Lincoln – Here’s The TRUTH [MEME]


By on Saturday, November 21, 2015

The Democrats have claimed for years that the rich in America ought to be paying their “fair share” in taxes. President Obama was elected twice on such a platform. Now, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are making the same argument, and recent polls suggest the strategy is more effective than ever.
And while taxes are going up, the national debt, or the burden we pass on to the next generation, continues to swell out of control.
Democrats like to routinely claim that soaking the rich with higher and higher taxes is sound common sense and good practical policy. Higher taxes are good for some people, the left says.
Yet, we find that taxes constitute the only good thing that no person ever wants to claim the good of for himself or herself.
Taxes are good for you, but not for me.

In this regard, consider Abraham Lincoln:
The sum of pro-slavery theology seems to be this: “Slavery is not universally right, nor yet universally wrong; it is better for some people to be slaves; and, in such cases, it is the Will of God that they be such.”
Certainly there is no contending against the Will of God; but still there is some difficulty in ascertaining, and applying it, to particular cases. …
But, slavery is good for some people!!! As a good thing, slavery is strikingly perculiar [sic], in this, that it is the only good thing which no man ever seeks the good of, for himself.
Nonsense! Wolves devouring lambs, not because it is good for their own greedy maws, but because it is good for the lambs!!!
What do you think of this?
