"redistribution of wealth" is not an example of redistribution of wealth. Oh, and your "obvious ploy" statement is 100% bullshit - you are clearly projecting what you think
the other side is thinking, but you're completely off, which is no surprise, as you don't understand the other side.
Oh come-on now, even YOU must realize that that's complete crap.
Let's see, has Obama...
- raised any taxes in 3 years, other than fed tobacco: NO
- introduced any tightening of gun control laws: NO
- closed Guantanomo: NO
- immediately pulled all troops out of Bush's wars: NO
- pushed for any kind of federal gay marriage law: NO
- increased any spending on social programs: NO
What we DO have is the most divisive far-right republican congress we've ever had - even the old GOP mainstream agrees.
So are you saying that the more educated a person is, the stupider they become?
This is clearly an instance where you're just regurgitating a politically-motivated opinion.
All of you right-wingers trying to debate in this forum keep making the same mistake; you act as if there's a tiny, crazy minority of people who disagree with you, when it's actually half the population. With few exceptions, most of our presidential elections are split right down the middle. So get a clue, and wise-up.
Exerpt from an Obama interview:
What should the Constitution say that the Federal government or State government do on the behalf on its citizens? Barack Obama suggests that one thing would be to redistribute wealth. "But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth,and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society." In the interview, Barack Obama suggests that, "I'm not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. You know, the institution just isn't structured that way." Presumably, at least at the time, Barack Obama preferred legislative approaches to the kind of changes, including redistribution of wealth, that he favors.
