Cradle to Grave: The Obama Campaign's Fantasy for American Life

The Obama campaign has a cringe-inducing propaganda slideshow called “The Life of Julia” intended to illustrate how the Obama Administration’s policies will give government help to a young woman as she is educated, works, starts a family and retires.

If you had to stifle a guffaw, you’re not alone.

Yes, the Obama Administration’s policies alone can be the savior for American children everywhere – all it takes, apparently, are piles and piles of taxpayer money thrown around recklessly. And by the end, children will still be able to retire and live comfortably on the totally-stable programs of Medicare and Social Security!

The dream that Obama has for Julia’s life is scary. There was a time that the “cradle-to-grave” formulation of the welfare state was disparaging. President Obama takes pride in having the governemnt’s fingers pushing Julia along at every stage of her life. This is the fantasyland that the Obama Administration is living in – absolutely no mention of the unprecedented debt and deficit that the government has racked up in the last four years and the effect that will have on the economy as the next generation comes of age.

    What ever happened to the Land of Opportunity? Has it been replaced by the welfare state?

    What did you expect from a marxist??  In order to maintain power they must control ever part of a persons life literally cradle to grave.   If  they do not they lose control and people wake up 

  4. pduffy says:

    It boils down to a very simple truth. Obama and his ilk reject the commandment of God which says, “Thou shalt not steal”, which is the ultimate law and established the right to personal property and the right to one’s own labor. Communism and socialism are at its roots, satanic, and is Anti-God.

  5. TheSunDidIt says:

    They’re trying to replace the roles of God and family.

  6. Dodie1990 says:

    God has nothing to do with it. Most prople would prefer a free ride from the government. look at all the Democrat voters, proved my point.

  7. sean murry. says:

    Land of opportunity is now the welfare state it is a joke for obummers fanasty.

  8. X-SF Vet says:

    Comrade Odummer will be long dead and gone (to hell I hope) when his reckless policies take their toll on the present generation.  Just as LBJ’s policy to break the Medicare Trust will be paid for by my generation.  Most politicians are all about themselves, what they can grab while in office.  America is doomed because of past generations of politicians.

  9. Bobseeks says:

    Cradle to grave results in a debased form of human as can be seen by the degenerate form of human produced in Europe today. To avoid this in America, we must begin the process of dismantling government and its welfare programs, begining at the local level and working our way up. We also need to reform the school system to produce capitalist workers rather than socialist parasites. If we don’t we will end up as another Europe.

    • uddeboda says:

      Funny you should mention Europe and their “cradle to grave” policies……………..actually its not the social welfare systems they have broken the backs of a couple of countries, it has been the banks and the financial institutions that did it…………………….JUST like in the USA a few years back. In the USA there is no social security system as in Europe, all of which are different in their construction, some are OK, some are good and a few are outstanding, in the service they give their citizens…..ALL of their citizens……not as in the USA where the rich and the well too do can afford the ever increasing heathcare insurance payments which are now into 5 $$$$$ figures for a family, therefore 50 million have no insurance, 47 millions are on food stamps, and 23 million out of work. The USA needs a new system, whereby all citizens WILL benefit, where all persons pay an income tax, but this is not dome overnight, perhaps in 50 yrs time……..and people who despise what I write are those who are better off, and dont mix with the power class……its becoming almost like the caste situation in India

  10. Samtman says:

    The biggest fantasy is the right wing is still living in a  Norman Rockwell world that actlually never existed.

    • Bobseeks says:

      I guess that you like the reality of living in a world filled with parasitism, sloth, violence, and depravity – the world lieberalism has created?

  11. Racefish says:

    It seems this is wjhat it’s coming down to. People don’t want the responsibility or freedom of running their own lives. They’ve been brainwashed into thinking government can do a better job than they are able to.
    So much for the American Dream. The Leftists and the Statists believe they have the answers when they prove over and over they don’t know the question.

  12. R. Young says:

    Pipe Dreams from the Oval Office!

  13. Noweareman says:

    We’re only making plans for Nigel!

  14. Cactushugger says:

    A frightening blueprint for the totalitarian future of the USA. The sad thing is that so many are going to buy into it and allow it to happen… anyone read the history books about the rise of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, or read Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984?

    • HVKaltenborn says:

      I have always wondered how women in Germany in the 1930′s put up with the rise of Nazis.  It turns out that women were the STRONGEST supporters of Hitler.  The Nazis promised stability and safety and women were all for it!

  15. Big Mac says:

    One thought,the dollar,if it is gone what good will all the money that  politicians have taking will be of no use for them,what they do to the people will come back at them to when they want to retired,that is what is mad in the thinking, and Obama think he going to become King,the sick mad person that is in the background will not let him set,cause when he done the job, he will be done in just like he doing to the people, I may be nutty at time but I’m not DUMB!
