President Obama just began a Midwest bus tour that his aides say is for the purpose of hearing first-hand what’s on the peoples’ minds during a struggling economy. But for all practical purposes he’s campaigning for the upcoming 2012 presidential election. There is an old saying that, “If looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck.” Clearly, one message he is conveying on this tour is, “Don’t do as I do, do as I say do.”

For, if he was just on a listening tour and not campaigning, why would he be mentioning the pool of Republicans who are trying, first to be his challenger, and then his replacement? Still stinging from his defeat in the debt-ceiling bout with the Republican House Tea Partiers, he can’t help but take a jab every chance he gets.

For example, he says that if they fail to pay attention, they (the House Tea Partiers) will not be re-elected. Does that sound like a fact finding statement, or a campaign message? You be the judge.

Plus, the President still claims the people are in favor of higher taxes as a means of bringing down the debt. And as a socialist, something he vehemently denies, he absolutely rejects any notion that his insatiable appetite for spending is a problem, although his social programs have added more to the national debt as a percentage of GDP than any President before him.

Included in one of his non-campaigning campaign speeches was an attack on GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, saying the former Massachusetts governor pushed through a state-mandated health-care system which is very similar to what is now routinely called Obamacare. He is fully aware that should the White House and Senate fall into Republican control while maintaining a majority in the House that one of the first duties of the new Congress will be to undo his signature legislation. Is that campaigning or just listening?

Now — back to those who are seeking to be the president’s 2012 challenger. Obama could not help but show his dismay for their unanimity in rejecting any tax increase as a means of lowering the national debt. While he believes those paying taxes should pay more so he can spend more, under his administration the number of non-tax-payers has increased, putting an even greater burden on those who do.

Also, the President has this never-ending theme about the government doing great things to stimulate the economy, to create jobs. Particularly, he refers to, what he calls investing. But investing or stimulating to a socialist is what most others refer to as spending non-recoverable tax-payer money. That is, redistributing income, taking from those who earn and giving to those who do not.

And of course, high on his investment or stimulating projects is the infrastructure – roads and bridges, for example. For some reason that only a socialist can comprehend, the Obama Administration believes that spending tax-payer money on temporary jobs is better than permanent private sector jobs funded by private investors.

Consistent with that distortion of reality, the Obamanites are making the talk-show rounds claiming food stamps stimulate the economy. If that be the case, the more Americans who go on welfare the better the economy will be. If you believe that, I’ve got some beach-front property in Arizona I would like to sell you.

So, just what is this debate really all about that is going on between the leftist Obama Administration and those who want debt reduction and sensible spending? It’s all about economic philosophy – it’s all about Keynesian economics versus the free enterprise system.

While it is true that all tax-payer money spent benefits someone, as Keynesian economists are quick to point out, it is simply temporary. Plus, for every dollar of benefit one person realizes, someone else loses. In other words, in the real world Keynesian economics is nothing more than redistribution of wealth. And redistribution of wealth is nothing more than Marxism, or if you want to call it by a nicer word – socialism.

And no matter how the Obama Administration spins it, socialism is socialism (the duck example again). And by the way, a progressive income tax system such as we have in the United States is the second plank in the 1848 Communist Manifesto. And while it is true that our progressive tax system began in 1913, Keynesian economics significantly influenced the FDR Administration, a time when government funded projects became commonplace. Next to Obama, no other president was ever so into redistribution of wealth.

Lastly, let’s not forget that while the President and Democrats are clamoring about jobs being lost to foreign manufacturing, the President’s tour bus is a Prevost. And guess where Prevost buses are made? That’s right; they are made in Canada. And the last time I heard, Canada was still a foreign country.

In other words, the President’s message to those concerned about our precarious economy is, “Don’t do as I do, do as I say do.”
