Romney, Right, Wrong or Truth?

Ineptocracy or free market democracy? It's Your choice.

Those comments from Romney about the 47% lead me to a new word and definition:

Ineptocracy: (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.  

There is little doubt that Obama is all about wealth redistribution. All of the  platitudes about asking the wealthy to pay "just a little bit" more are just that - platitudes. If Obama thought he could get away with it the tax rate on the highest earners would more likely be in the 90% range. 

The unfortunate truth for Romney is when you get close to telling it like it is, no one really wants to hear the truth. The facts are: there are millions of Americans who depend on the welfare and entitlement programs, but there are millions more who take advantage of the system. 

Think about this: While the welfare rolls grow and when  the rich are taxed into the  middle class with you and I,  who will those preferring an ineptocracy come after next to help fund the welfare state? Hint: Look in the mirror. 

To quote and old cliché: it seems like "Mitt only stops shooting himself in the foot long enough to reload". 

Romney appears to be in big trouble. The party faithful have begun to distance themselves from their presidential candidate. They never really liked him all that much anyhow. So much for political structural integrity. Those Republicans leaving what they think is a sinking ship, are what usually leaves a sinking ship first. 

The Republican media have vilified the Romney campaign. I'm not sure if they are just trying to sell newspapers, ads or web site clicks, but they sure are handing a significant advantage to the Obama campaign. Many of these serious outcries will show up in Obama ads, and debate questions. 

You can pretty well take it to the bank that Romney believes in substance  everything on those recordings. The campaign may try to walk it back a little, but my bet is Mitt won't go along with much of that. 

Voters, some Republicans and many Independents, have never been really comfortable with Romney. For some, these statements will make them uncomfortable enough to vote for Obama. For others it's what they secretly believe and they will go to the polls and vote for Romney. 

The choice is becoming clearer, ineptocracy or free market democracy? Your ballot is in the mail it's your vote -- make it count.

Idiocracy (id-E-ock-ra-SEE) - Believing that the Constitution dictated a 2-party politcal system where 3rd parties are denied an equal media voice during campaigns & presidential debates because money trumps democracy, and corporations are people.

Why are tax rates lower than the wealthy paid under Reagan, suddenly "Wealth Redistribution" under Obama? I can explain it... conservatives have adopted a sort of learned nonsense. They tune into Rush or Glen Beck and the nonsense gets repeated over and over again, until eventually it becomes a learned response regardless of how divorced from reality it is. I will define ineptocracy... A nonsense word that means nothing invented by Ayn Rand worshipers to describe a dystopian attack on the wealthy only they can see. Redistribution? The fact is, since 1980, the middle class has gone from earning 60% of the nations income to earning 45% today. That's been the result of conservative tax policies that favor wealth over work, a raft of free trade agreements and the systematic destruction of organized labor. There has been a redistribution of wealth, but it has overwhelmingly benefitted the wealthy. They don't even joke about the 'trickle down' of prosperity any more. Instead they accuse working people of sloth and dependency because they can't muster enough income out of the troubled world conservatives have created to qualify for income taxes.

I was going to reply to this story but you said it better than I could Rick. Excellent post.

How can the Obama presidency even be considered ineffective? With his leadership, the worst economic crisis since the depression was rescued, our last bastion of industry was granted a loan, which is well on its way to being repaid, the Iraq war withdrawal occurred, and the philosophical and symbolic head of the fundamentalist regime at war with the west was assassinated. Domestic oil production is up, alternative energy research and development increased, and the health care quandary is being solved (which is modeled after Romney's plan in Massachusetts and being attacked by the candidate himself). The "trickle down" economic model may have worked in the past when the wealthy in our country would invest in good jobs on our soil, now the money is being sent to overseas factories while our middle class is diminishing, let alone the working class. Romney says anything he needs to say in order to get elected. Is he a moderate republican? Is he a hard liner? Is he for women's rights? Is he a conventional and traditional religious follower? Who is Mitt Romney? Will he ever address the conditions that existed before Obama's presidency that led to the economic meltdown and mortgage and banking fraud? Does he really believe that some in this country aren't beneficiaries of any government program? Really? Did he really say that he would have let the automakers in his home state of Michigan go bankrupt which hurts the small businesses who don't get paid in bankruptcy?
