PLUMBER: “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?”
OBAMA: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
This is nothing short of socialism. Sure it can be perceived as not punishing him for success but I'll tell you what, it is rewarding others for being lazy, having less education, and little or no ambition. Obama is all about being faaaaaiir and seeeeensitive.
I have two views on this: One is that he is pandering and will not really do all the socialist things he claims he will do as president. He often says one thing to one group and another to another group. I read a quote somewhere saying if you ask what Obama's views are in/on [insert subject here], the answer is "depends on who he is talking to." Right now he has so many people in his pocket who'd rather take a bullet for him than speak the truth but he is aiming for a Ron Reagan landslide win and in order to do so, he needs to pander to the group who doesn't pay taxes and probably wouldn't have voted at all if not for his empty promises.
My second view on this video is that, as much as I hate to admit it, this video might be altered a little bit to show the worst of the conversation. It absolutely does not excuse what he said but it is cut up a little bit and I fear the Obama News Networks might interpret it in this way. The first part where he says, "I'm not punishing you..." is damning evidence of his socialism and I will in no way stick up for that. But I wonder if the "spread the wealth around" is indeed linked to that first part. I hope it is but be prepared for the Left wing media to counter attack this video.
His undeniable ties to socialism, anti-American ideology, terrorists, and financial thugs have been covered up in such a way I have never seen or read about. And yet with all this damning evidence that he intends to destroy our nation, the media is obsessed that Republicans might be racist. And for the record, historically the Democrats have been racist-- KKK, Jim Crow laws, slavery, etc. The only person in the Senate who is a former member of a white supremacy group is Democrat Robert Byrd who is still in office. Conservatives are historically God-fearing people who's churches often send missionaries to more countries to help build homes while teaching them about Jesus. God tells us to love everyone and by-golly, we love everyone! We may not always like everyone but we love them and accept everyone for who they are and how God made them. I am not saying they are perfect, but in no way are they worse than the Democrats.
Why does it seem that after all these huge stories of Obama's dirty ties and work complete with undeniable facts to back them up, McCain is always on the defense when it should be reversed? We are becoming everything our founding fathers feared, everything the fought for, everything they didn't want to be.
