But republicans at least try to be fair to the people who earned their money. Most democrats, on the other hand, make no secret of the fact that people who earn their money "owe it to the rest of the country to share the wealth."
Obama even went as far to say to one man that "It is your God-given duty to share your wealth."
He said it again the other day to an Ohio Plumber:
"Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the blue-collar worker asked.You see, when Obama is caught off guard, his true beliefs slip out. When he is debating McCain, and when he is giving his prepared speeches, he sticks to his memorized talking points. But when he is caught off guard, his true liberal feelings are revealed
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."
It's no secret that Obama wants to take the money of those who earned it and give it to the poor, who didn't earn it. That, if I am not mistaken from my many economics classes, is what we call Socialsim.
Robin Hood Economics is socialism. It does not work. It fails. It does not stimulate the economy. It traps the poor in poverty. It provides no incentive for the poor to work.
Heck, when you punish the achievers, the people who are winning in this country, you punish the poor. That's what conservatives have been saying all along and nobody listens until a liberal (remember Jimmy Carter) comes in and destroys the economy with Robin Hood policies.
Note: You cannot take from the rich and give to the poor and expect the economy to prosper. It has never happened and will never happen.
It's funny, because Obama said the other day that we are right now in the worst economic disaster since the Great depression.
John Rassmussen said earlier today that this is not the worst economic disaster since the Great depression. It is the worst economic disaster since Jimmy Carter.
And, as I wrote before, if Obama gets elected, the economy will only get worse, as Jimmy Carter's liberal policies made the economy worse.
