For the record, any liberal who comments to this will be immediately confronted with my demand that he or she share their prosperity with me.
It’s the least you can do to not be an abject hypocrite weasel, after all.

Truly Terrifying Quote o’ the Day
No additional setup is required:
“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?” President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?”
“I believe we have to go forward,” Obama said. “I believe we have to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love, you can make it here if you try. That’s what’s at stake in November. That’s what is why I am running for a second term as president of the United States of America.”
“Shared prosperity” is collectivism. Statism. Marxism. It means taking from those who produce goods and services to fund those who don’t, which is certainly outside any legitimate function of government under the United States Constitution.
I wouldn’t be all that concerned except… collectivism has failed every time it’s ever been tried in all of human history, from Plato’s Republic to the Soviet Union. It leads to despotism and tyranny, as surely as night follows day.
Hat tip: BadBlue News Service.
Just remember, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.” That’s why Obama can take your profits that ought to be going to your family and your children and redistribute them to somebody who will vote for him.
Obama has said we need to “spread the wealth around.” If you listen to the man talk, I defy you to explain to me how Barry Hussein could possibly refute the central economic statement of Marxism:
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” – Karl Marx
Obama IS a Marxist. That is simply a fact of understanding what words mean.
Another thing is that while Obama says, ” I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper,” this very same hypocrite who mouths those words is literally allowing his OWN BROTHER to suffer in squalor. And the demonstrable truth is that Obama DOESN’T care about his brother; all he cares about is accumulating the same sort of raw government power over a people that Marxists have ALWAYS sought to accumulate. This man who cares NOTHING about his very own brother while saying, “I am my brother’s keeper” for mass consumption wants his liberal ideology and his Democrat Party to be able to decide who wins and who loses, to be able to dictate who is rewarded and who is punished. That’s all he cares about. And if he can drag America across that threshold that is all she wrote.
But let’s get beneath even that level: Obama says, “I am my brother’s keeper.” And that’s fine as long as it is Obama deciding as an individual to do more for his brother (which in fact he has refused to do). But what Obama then does is a bait-and-switch: he says, “I am my brother’s keeper because I am going to force YOU to pay for my keeping of my brother.” Understand that while Obama demands the erection of a Marxist-style State that seizes the wealth of others and redistributes it according to political ideology, Obama himself gave less than 1 percent of his own wealth to charity before he announced he was going to run for president.
“I am my brother’s keeper” is a statement of an individual INDIVIDUALLY accepting responsibility out of his own or her own wealth and making the CHOICE to give. But Obama cynically and deceitfully uses the phrase to try to justify a big government State that directly attacks the very religious system that he uses to justify his powergrab: Barack Obama is responsible for 54.5 million abortions in America since 1973; Barack Obama is responsible for the attack on biblical marriage; Barack Obama is imposing something the Bible literally calls an “abomination” onto society; Barack Obama is at war with the Catholic Church.
The same cynical, dishonest man who mocks the Bible proceeds to use it to justify his government takeover and his confiscation of the money that people worked hard to EARN:
If we’re not supposed to use the Bible to justify government policy, then why the hell did you do it, Barry Hussein??? But of course what you do is exploit the Bible whenever it is convenient for YOU while denouncing anyone who uses the Bible as that Bible actually teaches.
For the record, North Korea is dark at night – as in dark the way it was in the damn STONE AGE – because its people bought this same sort of crap that Obama is blathering.
