What is your thought on the leaked video of President Obama out right stating that he believes in Redistribution?

Yes I am. I have a problem with all subsidies and handouts. Oil industry, solar companies, farmers...all of it. I consider it all wrong. Let both people and business succeed or fail on their own.
So Marxist ideology is alright because everyone has been doing it? Really? I know you're smarter than that. That's totally illogical thinking.
Mr. AJ - I appreciate your honesty. My problem is with people who "hate Obama and Dem because they shift money around, but pretend that Rep presidents and congressmen don't do the . They ALL do it, just in different ways.
America is the Land of Opportunity - NOT the land of "you make it so we can give it to the lazy and unmotivated......"
Subsidies aside, Barack Obama believes that everyone should 'make' the same, all should be fair and equitable. What about keeping the fruits of your labors; " the trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."
AJ - Back during that campaign I would point out the truths about Obama and would get back, "You lie. You lie." Even after I gave them links to read for themselves they wouldn't accept the truth. It's called denial. They still do it today.
Very true AJ - but it is up to all of us who still believe that America should be #1 to remind others of what we are about to lose if Obama wins in November.
I will second that one Frog! Leave mine alone - I work hard and I do not want to take care of the free loaders.
Agreed. The problem is that when you give handouts to those who did not earn for themselves, you destroy any incentive to go out and achieve. Instead of spreading wealth you are spreading poverty.
The creation of "The Great Society" has been a disaster. I suspect it was designed to "keep people in their place" rather than help lift people out of poverty. It has proven to be an abject failure.
Absolutely Frog and now everyone hates the President who did it... no wait he is the most or the third most popular president in American history, never mind then.
Obama and his wife are self made people who worked their way up. They are living examples of all that you believe in, in your economic system. However, he also knows that even more people can succeed with help, not a handout.
I don't think that Jesus would have supported those handouts for the lazy and slovenly. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day - but teach a man to fish and he eats for a life time. Both sides have made mistakes but Obama is forever changing the USA

What the Bible said about the poor and redistribution: .http://library.generousgiving.org/articles/display...
Refer to section: For the Israelites, a People of Special Concern to God
Grand old lady - just to clarify - there is "poor" and there is "lazy" if someone works but is poorly paid even - I can definitely see giving them a hand and teaching them how to better their income. If someone is lazy it is often a character flaw
So you do not mind working hard, earning a pay check and having to give a big chunk of it to the Government to supplement the lazy and unmotivated or the lifers on welfare. Makes absolutely no sense to me that the hard workers get penalized - I quit!
Redistribution is theft by a different name. Why should someone else benefit for my hard work? Why should someone who decided not to go to college benefit because I did? Look how well redistribution (socialism) worked in Europe - Greece.
Nope, sure don't. It's what has made America work well for the previous 50 years. It's the top 1%'s greed that has gotten us to the point we are at today.
You are not being rationale - giving money to the lazy and unmotivated is "OK" with you but someone who works hard to build a lucrative business and become the top 1% is a problem.....
''Redistribution is fine with me, and I say, the sooner the better'' When it comes from the government it don't work too good. 24 million unemployed and 47 million on food stamps. The poor and the middle class don't provide JOBS. WAKEUP!
Lady and Jon: I'm wide awake. There are two philosophies of how this country should be run. You are of one school of thought and I am of another. I'm happy for people to be rich, I just don't think we should give them an unfair advantage.
,one needs look at both sides of the coin.Romney: Redistribution does not get people back to work

Thanks Jon - I hope others check out your links too.

We already have so many Government Health care plans that do not work (Medicare, Medicaid, Military) - they need to turn it all over to the Private Sector and offer tax incentives to those companys that come up with the best plan to cover all comers.
Scarey stuff isn't it - wish more folks would see it for what it really is.
Totally agree with you, Old Empresario!
