I <3 Transylvania: election views

One out of three American students are high-school dropouts. These types of people are clearly not going to get high paying jobs, nor get enough income to spend to help the economy thrive (consumer). Ninety-five percent of Americans do not make over 250,000 annually. They need the money they have to feed, house, and clothe their families, and some cannot pay their taxes. So the question remains, to give tax breaks to that ninety-five percent and make the other five percent pay for them, or to give equal tax breaks to all and let some struggle to make ends meet.

Barack Obama suggests “spreading the wealth around.” But doesn’t that sound like something else we’ve heard? That something is socialism. People do not work the same amount or have the same skills or ability, and therefore should not be paid the same amount of money. As mentioned before, 95% or Americans earn less than 250,000 annually, and will be getting tax breaks if Obama wins. This means that those who earn higher than that have to pay for the others. Those who earn above 250,000 a year worked hard to earn that amount, and should not have to pay for a high school dropout who did not really care about their education. It wasn’t their mistake, so why should they pay for it? All this does is encourage Americans by saying, “Oh, it’s ok, if you don’t finish high school or get a job, the ‘rich’ people will take care of you.”
John McCain, on the other hand, is opposed to Obama’s
