Robin Hood or Marxist?

Advertisement

How will Barack Obama handle the money he confiscates from the wealthy? Will he be more like Robin Hood and give it to the poor or more like Marx and make government more powerful and omnipotent than ever?

Hmmm. . . and yet, it appears to remain inevitable?

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship." Alexander Tyler in response to the fall of the Athenian Republic in 1787

Marion, did you read any of those statutes? ACORN isn't guilty of any of those.

Good question. First, I don't quite believe that $250,000 a year labels anyone wealthy. But to answer your question, like extreme liberals are wont to do it will be spent on unnecessary entitlements. A shame really since I do believe entitlements are a form of enabling. Example: I have a brother who does not work. Who supports him? My mother; pays his rent, buys his groceries, bought him a care and so on. This enables my brother to be irresponsible... 'Nough said. Those are my thoughts.

So far as I know, none of these improperly registered "voters" has attempted to vote.Besides, it was all those neocons doing the registration, disguised as Acorn personnel. I know it's true (and should be taught in all public schools) because I BELIEVE it to be true. That makes it a scientific fact, don't ya know?

My favorite is the bush fluffer that posts the Ann Coulter Goebbels link as if it is a legit source! Get a grip!Im still not sure why it is bad to be from Chicago. I can only assume that some people, like Mrs Palin and jimincountry believe that it is one of the un-American places.

I guessing that a lot of money will need to be spent on the aging and dangerous infrastructure across america. Im also guessing that Obama will want to provide the very best care for our veterans that he will be bringing home from Iraq. I have heard him speak about the poor educational system and guess he will spend some there, and will also help thousands more get to college. I object to none of these plans.

I wonder which talking head this Chicago talking point came from initially. Does anybody know?

Read more about Tom Shewmon here:http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/sep/22:"Obama is not going to bend over backwards for whites. He will tax the living daylights out of us and do any and all possible to ratchet us down and give total access, power and our money to the blacks.""Will he be high-fiving at the inaugeration? Will he lose the "white" voice inflection? Will Michelle really tell us what she thinks about whites? Maybe.""I think once this fraud, Obama, were to be installed in the whitehouse, as the months and years ensued, it would make the nonsense about GWB seem trivial and Obama would incite a mass revolt. He would probably then use this domestic military style force he talks of to keep people off the streets and under his idea of control. I would guess this force would be trolling mostly white burbs and rural areas (where all the ignorant bigots live). He'd leave the inner cities up to the traditional police force who would do nothing about those war zones then like they do now. Scary, scary proposition-an Obama presidency. If American asks for it and gets it, I'll have not one iota of sympathy for anyone once I'm boarding that jet."

Obama is what the communist call a "usefull idiot." He might be a socialist, he is no Marxist nor is he a communist. However if you know anything about Marxism you know that if and when they ever get control the Obama's of the world are the first people they get rid of.

Well, he could be like Bush, and take money from the middle class tax payers, and give it to the rich bankers. How stupid can you get. It's just distributing it up not down. Banks on welfare. Welfare is welfare. How is this not distribution of wealth? How can you defend Bush's bail out? He's your hero. How do you rationalize this as not socialism? I'm waiting? I would prefer my taxes go to the poor, and we confiscate all the houses of the lazy, deatbeat executives and their bank accounts to pay for the bailout.

sfjayhawk,Don't you know that Tom and Marion could care less about the soldiers coming home? They figure they can get a job. Injured?, make them buy their own health insurance. They shouldn't have gotten injured. These "rugged individuals", like Marion and Tommy boy have not sympathy for people with disabilities. They would just as soon they go away and die. If you can't take care of yourself, just die.

Oh, found it. It's from McCain himself.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aFHGR4eh9A.4&refer=homeBrought up from time to time by bloggers before this, apparently.

Bush/McCain give all the money to the rich lobbyists and CEO's.Obama will spread the wealth and help the lower and middle class. We need it!

RonBurgandy 6 years, 1 month ago

Obama's plan is exactly what should happen. Taxes should be cut for the people that need it, and should be raised for the people that don't. I am not even sure if Obama is raising taxes for the wealthy or just repealling the pointless Bush tax cuts. Either way, I don't feel sorry for them at all. Anyone making over $250k lives just fine.

jimincountry:Sounds like chicago is one of those un-American places that you and Palin believe in. What other places are un- American in your eyes besides Chicago, Harvard and Columbia? Should be a very interesting list.

Obama will find the most deserving and spend among ACORN!

sfjayhawk 6 years, 1 month ago

jimincountryWhat is wrong with Chicago? Is it one of the places that is not patriotic enough for you and Mrs Palin? And and FYI, Mr Obama was never an elected official for the City of Chicago.

"Robin Hood or Marxist? How will Barack Obama handle the money he confiscates from the wealthy? Will he be more like Robin Hood and give it to the poor or more like Marx and make government more powerful and omnipotent than ever?"Three questions.No answers.Fewer clues.'nuff said.

james bush 6 years, 1 month ago

I think Obama is the personification of his own words that he used around the time when he was caught "borrowing" another's sayings.........."Words just words" as I still can hear him saying as he expounded in his best community-organizing oratory. And that's how phenomenal Obama is : He has community-organized himself from southside-Chicago-community activist with ties to ACORN quite possibly into the presidency of the USA................with, I'd bet, the same style and words he's used since he progressive-ized himself from the leftist Columbia University, to the south Chicago community organizer, to the Harvard University liberals, and to his "new beginnings" as lawyer for ACORN and collaborator with Ayers the terrorist-turned-radical-college "education" professor in Chicago,then as an Illinois senator, then as a senator in the federal government of the USA.The liberal media has never fully INVESTIGATED this man and probably won't until after the election but somebody needs to start following the money behind this guy!.....at least to the extent they've gone after Palin or or Cindy McCain.And finally, Obama is in essence a slick Chicago politician.........he even out-slicks Bill Clinton but Clinton had no sinister collaborations that treatened undermining the government of the USA.

Wow, Marion. Your lights aren't burning too bright tonight, are they?

james bush 6 years, 1 month ago

Obama is an elected official of the south Chicago people he organized to vote for him with the help of ACORN and the students of Wm Ayers the radical/marxist professor who is teaching teachers to teach marxism to Chicao area young people.

dandelion 6 years, 1 month ago

Marion,You're voting for McSame, and he's voted against veteran's benefits. And I've heard lots of talk about who people who can't take care of themselves and get disability are just a bunch of lazy bums. Maybe you aren't as big on that, but I'm tired of hearing all of you talk down people who don't make as much money as you. It's snobbish, disgusting. I'm happy that you're life has been easy, but you could show a little humanity to those who have hardships. Not all poor people are drunks.

PS..it will be interesting to see the Obama-squad players who seem ready these days to react to anti-Obama posts..............suppose they are only paid for daylight hours or by the blog!? Did not I read that there was plenty of money for this kind of thing?

Mike Blur 6 years, 1 month ago

So what, blah blah blah, Barry Obama palled around with Ayers when he was 8 and Ayers was 40. (Like we believe that.)Truth is, Al-Qaeda supporters have endorsed the McCain/Palin ticket.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/johnmccain/3238578/John-McCain-endorsed-by-al-Qaeda-supporters.htmlWhat's more, these "real life" terr'ists are willing to attack the USA if it means a McCain victory in two weeks.

james bush 6 years, 1 month ago

Seems they are paid for late blog-hours!

Just tryin' to stir the pot, jonas. I've received that quote from numerous people over the last four months, I don't even know who Tyler is.

Kyle Reed 6 years, 1 month ago

Too funny. About 4 posters answer the original questions asked and all the rest fail to miss a beat and post the exact same finger pointing, you're wrong and I'm right BS they post on any and all threads.
