"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.
Unnoticed by most Americans this week, the Obama/Hagel GLOBAL POVERTY ACT was quickly approved by a senate committee and cleared for the next step, debate in a democrat-controlled senate.
The GLOBAL POVERTY ACT is unique in its breathtaking scope. It is not foreign-aid. The Act will require the President and Congress to set aside .07% of the annual gross national product – our GNP – to be distributed around the globe to relieve poverty at a cost of about $800 billion dollars annually to taxpayers. It is Barack Obama’s response to the call of the Bali Global Warming Conference for a global carbon tax; a blatant redistribution of the planet’s wealth to the “powerless”.
Coupled with his riveting stump speeches which generate huge emotional reactions from his equally huge audiences – speeches which literally call for a redistribution of wealth right here at home as well – Barack Obama’s sponsorship of the GLOBAL POVERTY ACT gives us a chilling preview of an Obama presidency.
