According to Huffington Post Business news, there is a leaked tape in 1998 which then Senator Obama during a speech at Loyola University called for income redistribution. Then Senator Obama stated that government should be restructured to make income redistribution possible. In the 2008 presidential campaign, Presidential Candidate Obama staunchly maintained that income redistribution is good for everyone. What is your take on this?!
In entirely depends on what "redistribution" means, I mean redistribution already happens all the time in everything from public school to medicare to food stamps. Without knowing to what extent he meant.
As for myself I am going with Thomas Paine.
"It is a position not to be controverted that the earth, in its natural, cultivated state was, and ever would have and should have continued to be, the common property of the human race. In that state every man would have been born to property. He would have been a joint life proprietor with rest in the property of the soil, and in all its natural productions, vegetable and animal."

We are constantly being bombarded by breaking news from both sides of the political spectrum. It's not just a matter of presenting the news, but it's also the talking heads that follow the breaking news events. They are presented as experts, when in reality, they don't have any more of a clue...

I personally think that Romney will win because Obama's supporters won't be as enthusiastic and riled up as they were in 2008. He'll likely have losses in key demographics, such as the African American vote, that won't be large but may still add up to hurt him whether these votes transfer to Romney...
