Truth is the beginning of wisdom…

If you believe the media, Joe is a sinister, McCain-supporting Republican of the Reagan type – he is a true threat to the “Anointed One” – Barack Obama – and his chances of becoming president of the United States. “Joe the plumber” has a secret plan to destroy Barack Obama.

This sounds almost like a make-believe story, but it’s true. The media has been seeking to decapitate Joe the plumber.

Why? Because he’s an ordinary American who has a dream of business success for himself and his family.

Joe realized that Barack Obama, if elected, plans to punish him with brutal taxes.

Just by coincidence – and I know Chris Matthews and Katie Couric will never believe it was simply a coincidence – Joe met Barack Obama as Obama passed through his Ohio neighborhood. When Joe challenged Obama with a tough question – something the press has not done during the past two years – the Anointed One wilted.

How dare Joe want to make and keep his own money? The nerve of this man to want to be a success in a small business! As Obama put it, shouldn’t Joe want to help him “spread the wealth around?” so those who didn’t work hard could be supplemented by those who did.

With that one remark, Obama’s disguise as a moderate liberal crumbled … the socialist mentoring was out!

Here are just three of Obama’s biggest lies:

Obama Lie No. 1 — I will tax just the rich.

There is no such thing as a tax on just the rich. Taxes on wealthy people affect everyone. Remember, Obama defines anyone making over $90,000 a year as “rich.”

Joe the plumber discovered that Obama thinks Joe’s rich too. Under Obama, he won’t be able to hire new employees and grow his business. Joe’s not alone. Obama says he’ll strip away the FICA cap at $90,000 for every worker. That means every dollar you earn over that amount, you’ll pay 7% on it!

Obama Lie No. 2 — I want to give a tax cut to the middle class.

Baloney! Obama says he will let the Bush tax cuts expire. That’s an automatic 5% (maximum) tax increase on almost all taxpayers. Then make middle class folks pay capital gains taxes. Obama has said he wants to almost double them from a low of 15% to almost 30%.

Next he wants to hike the dividend tax, and he also has promised taxes on gas and energy. Isn’t that going to be nice to have more taxes on you heating, electrical, and vehicle energies.

Obama also wants to dramatically increase the estate tax, which had almost disappeared. So much for the idea of sharing your wealth with your kids in the future. If you save for them he will tax you again on your savings.

Obama Lie No. 3 — I want to make America more secure.

Another outright lie that I cannot believe Americans could be gullible enough to believe.

In an age when crazies like Iran’s Ahmadinejad are building ballistic missiles and promise to “destroy” the United States and Israel, Obama has promised to gut the missile defense program created by President Reagan. “I will cut investments in missile defense systems,” Obama said.

He has promised to cut “tens of billions” of dollars from the Defense Department. In an effort to make us more “secure.” Obama plans to disarm us! In the age of 9/11 can we afford such a radical Leftist in the White House? We can’t.

Tell The Truth About Obama

Obama is not just a danger to our economy, with his plans to raise taxes and spend $800 billion in new programs. He is a radical out to reshape America beyond recognition.

He is so radical he even backs driver’s licenses for illegal aliens – even though such a move would help future terrorists move freely in the United States. Even Hillary Clinton opposed his radical plan. But Obama not only touted such a plan running for president, he pushed for giving illegals driver’s licenses as a state senator in Illinois.

He is also the most pro-abortion candidate in the history of the country. In 2001, as a state legislator in Illinois, he opposed a bill to protect live-born children – children actually born alive! He was the only Illinois senator to speak out against the bill.

He opposes gun rights. He has long history of trying to deny ordinary citizens access to guns. The NRA has made this very plain. The NRA rated him an “F” on gun positions and says he is one of the most dangerous anti-gun politicians in the nation.

Never forget that Obama is a Harvard-educated elitist. To him, we Americans are simply “bitter” and he has mocked us saying “[they] cling to their guns and their religion.”

Expose The Truth About Obama

We must expose Obama for the dangerous radical he is. Even though most of the mainstream media except FOX will not inquire into Obama’s past or provide the information that America needs to be informed in their voting, there are many places on the interest to gain that information.

Once you get that information … TELL EVERYBODY ABOUT IT!
