Being a novice U.S. senator virtually unknown outside of his own state not that long ago, Barack Obama has been the focus of lots of scrutiny – including a couple of best-selling books – detailing his past associations and influences. But a featured teleseminar scheduled for Thursday will fill you in on the future of what life under an Obama administration would really be like.
Author Brad O’Leary will be discussing his book, “The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on American Values,” in the free seminar moderated by WND Managing Editor David Kupelian.
The 45-minute teleseminar will include some key highlights of Obama’s background, such as his relationship with onetime terrorist Bill Ayers, but will focus on what will actually happen in America should a President Obama implement his policies.
“The greatest find, the greatest discovery in the political world is a new voting bloc, and his book and his research here is targeted at proving that Obama’s big voting bloc is the 30 percent-plus of Americans who pay no income taxes,” Limbaugh said. “These people get polled a lot, they are played to constantly, and they are all for ever higher taxes on everybody else ’cause it means more for them, in their own version of ‘trickle down.'”
Limbaugh said O’Leary’s work is “fascinating,” and he read extensively from O’Leary’s op-ed published in Investors Business Daily.
Quoting from O’Leary, Limbaugh said: “When writing my latest book, ‘The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on American Values,’ I discovered a relatively unknown constituency: the 30 percent of American voters who do not pay federal income taxes. These Americans are exempt from paying income taxes either because their income level is below the threshold that would require them to pay, or their total deductions leave them with no income-tax liability.”
O’Leary continued, “So I set out to determine exactly who these people are and what makes them tick. In conjunction with Zogby America, I conducted a series of carefully orchestrated polls. For more results than I can write about here, you’ll have to buy my book or go to www.BarackObamaTest.com. First, I found that 60 percent of likely voters among non-taxpaying Americans favor Obama for president, whereas only 31 percent favor John McCain. In addition, a majority of the 30 percent of Americans who don’t pay federal income taxes agree with Obama’s $65 billion plan to institute taxpayer-funded, universal health coverage. On the other side, a majority of the 70 percent of Americans who pay federal income taxes (i.e., the folks who would have to foot the bill for this boondoggle) are opposed to Obama’s health care plan.”
Limbaugh said O’Leary was on point when he wrote, “[I]f Barack Obama and his legions of non-taxpaying supporters are allowed to set America’s economic policies and priorities, a wrench will be thrown into the gears of our remarkable economic machine. America will face a new war. Call it Obama’s ‘war on success.’ In this war, there will be no winners – only losers – taxpayers and non-taxpayers alike.”
O’Leary’s work found that 70 percent of Americans shoulder the majority of the federal budgetary burden for all Americans now, so Obama’s claim for a plan to cut taxes for 95 percent of Americans is a logical impossibility.
“Is he going to give more money to nontaxpayers?” O’Leary questioned. “You can’t give a tax cut to 95 percent of Americans if only 70 percent of them pay federal income taxes in the first place. Then again, math may not be Obama’s strong suit.”
O’Leary, former president of the American Association of Political Consultants, is the author of 11 books, a former talk radio host with millions of listeners and the award-winning television producer of “Ronald Reagan: An American President.”
