I’ve heard a lot of talk about “heavy lifting” coming from the democratic camp. Undoubtedly this is the mantra used to support Barrack Obama’s approach toward governing.
When one considers how political talking points are carefully choreographed it seems odd that the current president’s continued use of the term “heavy lifting” sends an unintended message. When I think about the left’s bent toward wealth redistribution along with the creation of an ever increasing class of government dependent citizens it reminds me of a pick pocket. We are continually told how “hard decisions” must be made. The decisions I see coming from the current regime in Washington to take from those who work and give to those who do not is anything but difficult.
Instead of helping create jobs for the unemployed the current administration is busily destroying the American dream for future generations. They use deceptive metaphors in an attempt to make their idea of government control more palatable for the masses. Fortunately the majority of American citizens are not as ignorant as many in government believe them to be. Americans have spoken overwhelmingly against the government takeover of healthcare yet their government ignores their concerns.
Borrowing from and painting a very different picture than the original idea used to describe the need to clean ones house I have coined a new metaphor. You’ve heard the term “spring cleaning” how about a “fall flushing.” As you can see, the picture I intend to paint in your mind is very clear. If our representatives in government cannot find the courage to follow the rule of law then we must discard them. Just imagine as you go into the voting booth in Novemebr that the button you push is the handle on a toilet.
