'It's Clear That His Main Goal is Redistribution of Wealth, Not Growth'

Sadly, we've come to the point where more people agree with redistributing wealth. The Democrats for years have played the envy card to great effect.
You won't find it in his campaign ads, but Barack Obama let slip his plans to become a modern-day Robin Hood in the White House, confiscating money from the rich to give to the poor.

Conservatives yesterday ripped Obama after he was caught on video telling an Ohio plumber that he intends to take the profits of small-business owners and "spread the wealth around" to those with lesser incomes.

The fracas over Obama's tax plan broke out Sunday outside Toledo when Joe Wurzelbacher approached the candidate.

Wurzelbacher said he planned to become the owner of a small plumbing business that will take in more than the $250,000 amount at which Obama plans to begin raising tax rates.

"Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the blue-collar worker asked.

After Obama responded that it would, Wurzelbacher continued: "I've worked hard . . . I work 10 to 12 hours a day and I'm buying this company and I'm going to continue working that way. I'm getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American Dream."

"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama told him. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too.

Then, Obama explained his trickle-up theory of economics.

"My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
Maybe if everyone behind Mr. Wurzelbacher worked as hard as he does they wouldn't have to sit around waiting for the government to spread the socialism around.

I've tried warning people they're going to take a huge hit on taxes when they vote for Obama and they refuse to listen. The mantra of change, whatever that means, now trumps all reason. They'll learn later, of course, but by then it'll be too late.
