Van Jones: Radical in Dream's Clothing
The radical Van Jones is rebranding his Obama-like redistributive philosophy as the American Dream. In order to be an effective spokesman, Jones presents a new, hyper-reasonable persona for his Rebuild the Dream movement. His agenda items include:
Increase revenue for America's government sensibly by making Wall Street and the super-rich pay their fair share. (ie, demonize the producers and tax them disproportionately) Simultaneously protect the heart and soul of America - our teachers, nurses and first responders. (ie, Halt the popular movement to rein in excessive labor influence and over-compensation and expand it instead) Guarantee the health, safety and success of our children and communities by leaving the muscle and bone of America's communities intact. (ie, send more federal dollars to cities and towns being crushed by the cost of corrupt union deals)
By standing up for dignity, equal opportunity and fair play, the Wisconsin workers have found their way to America's great moral center. They have shown us all, at last, the way back home. By standing with them, we reclaim what is best in our country.
Guaranteeing people's results in life is the Dream according to Van Jones and Barack Obama. But the true American Dream is based on the opposite - that through hard work and ingenuity, Americans - unencumbered by oppressive government - can invent their own lives and define the nation.
