A plea to the next president not to forget the wealth creators in our economy.
It's no surprise that the terror group is pulling for an Obama victory and a spectacular defeat for McCain.
It's dangerous for a country to be swept away by pacifist rhetoric.

Really scale back. People spend money more efficiently than the government. Thus people spending create more jobs.br /br /The rich also employ people either directly as servants – maids, nannies, gardeners. These employees help the rich go out and produce more. If the rich scale back they will not need these people. And tipping, instead of tipping your server, tell her/him that you are going to redistribute his tip to the homeless guy outside the restaurant. If the rich reduce spending it will ripple through the economy and the people that supported Obama will be out of jobs./blockquotebr /br /Despite a href=”http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2007/08/tipping-is-mandatory-but-five-buck-co.html”this post,/a I often tip generously both because I have been a waitress and because I think it is important to reward people who work. However, if Obama gets in (and it is still an if), perhaps tipping less or not at all would be a good way to save money as a way of “going John Galt.” Yet, is it fair to the person who is stiffed? What about a compromise, just tipping less? What do you think?br /br /UPDATE: I’ve been thinking. If Obama is elected, maybe in lieu of a tip I should leave a note like the following:br /br /HOPE AND CHANGE FOR AMERICA: ISpreading the Wealth Around./ibr /br /In lieu of a tip, $_____ has been donated to the Re-Elect Obama for President Campaign. Thank you for supporting the man and the movement that are bringing America together!br /br /If enough people leave notes like this, I’m sure it will galvanize waitpeople everywhere in support of The One!br /br /UPDATE II: As a commenter said, this post really seems to have hit a nerve. I am guessing that a number of lefty types are upset that their livelihood may be threatened.
