American Dream is on the defense
You know that whole “white picket fence, green lawn, backyard barbeque, 2.5 children, and a dog” thing otherwise known as the American Dream? Well that description comes from a place called the suburbs. A place that the middle class tends to call home.
As Stanley Kurtz explains in his book, ‘Spreading the Wealth’ and this story for the National Review, President Barack Obama and his “community organizer” crowd look to do away with the ‘burbs so that tax money can be spread throughout expanding cities of mediocrity.
Obama is a longtime supporter of “regionalism,” the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation. To this end, the president has already put programs in place designed to push the country toward a sweeping social transformation in a possible second term. The goal: income equalization via a massive redistribution of suburban tax money to the cities.—Stanley Kurtz
