HOPE ON - He's not just the 'Messiah'; He's a Socialist

Weapons of Mass Discussion has today's post from the HOPE ON (Help Ohio Prevent Electing Obama Now) project, with help from, a project of Let Freedom Ring.

As Matt explains,

"Obama isn't just a liberal, he's to the left of the only declared socialist in the US Senate!

What shall we use as a measuring stick? How about a politician who is a declared socialist? There is one in the United States Senate and his name is Bernie Sanders. The National Journal has Sanders ranked #4 in 2007. Barack Obama was top of the class. But it might interest you to know who else was "to the left" of the socialist. Barack Obama chose him to be his running mate: Joe Biden finished third. Even George Voinovich gets this one:

"There's a guy in the senate, Bernie Sanders" said Voinovich, "who brags about being a socialist. And if you compare Barack Obama's record with Bernie Sanders' record, they're not too far apart."

Obama's response to Joe the Plumber's question about why Obama wanted to punish him if he were to achieve the American Dream and achieve success was that he wanted to "spread the wealth around." If that isn't a restatement of the socialist doctrine of redistribution of wealth, I don't know what is."

Let's get a rotor-rooter and apply it where it will do the most good.

Here's a novel idea that hasn't been tried before. Let's eliminate half to two-thirds of the Federal income tax for everyone. Follow this up by getting rid of the death tax entirely, and cutting sales tax to match Federal income tax. Now then, with less money the Federal government will have to cut spending, right?

Cut military spending, foreign aid and all money spent on elected officials.

Now then, the people working for the money have more of it to spend and to give away to worthy causes. So, if individual citizens of the US of A decide they want to contribute money to, say, the Salvation Army, they'll be able to do so and still have a few bucks left over to save or to buy a home, or car, or food clothing shelter. Or they can gamble in the stock market. Or open their own business.
