McCain’s houses: It’s called capitalism

The implications from Barack Obama’s condemnation of John McCain’s not knowing how many houses he owns are quite disturbing.

Whether the number of houses that Sen McCain owns is five or seven, is that in any way a bad thing? How has becoming rich enough to own multiple houses become labeled as an evil?

We live in capitalistic country. If you provide goods and services that people want, then they will reward you monetarily. What usually happens in the end is that both parties of buyer and seller are satisfied.

In the relationship between the buyer and the seller, there is a mutual exchange. Mutual exchange implies that both parties are on the same level of agreement.

By holding stocks in the beer industry, the McCains are contributing to that relationship between buyer and seller. In addition, the McCains are doing their part to fuel the American business sector by investing money into the struggling American economy.

If there is anyone out of touch with the American middle class, it is essentially Barack Obama.

This is the very same senator who said in previous times that he wants to impose a capital gains tax on people making a set amount of money for the sake of “fairness.”

A capital gains tax would actually hinder the middle class.

The middle class is going to cringe at the idea of striving for monetary success to better be able to meet their needs for fear of having this tax imposed on them.

This is not in line with the principles of liberty and freedom upon which America was built.

Obama’s monetary ideology is more in line with that foreign ideology that America has rejected from its very beginning.

Namely: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
