I see there are two Americas. One that works and one that doesn’t. One that contributes, and one that does not. Some people do their duty as Americans, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America. It’s not about income inequality; it’s about civic responsibility.

President Barack Obama pledged to fight “income inequality.” He noted some people make more than others and says that’s not just. If the other guy has it, Obama will take it for you.

Progressive Democrats have not improved the lives of their followers but have enslaved them into a culture of dependence and entitlement.

Income variations occur as a result of different choices. If you choose to drop out of high school or have your children out of wedlock your life may suffer severe consequences. Life’s destination is determined by the course we take.

Obama simply ignores inequality of effort among individuals. He encourages separatism, and that’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare in a box.
