The Plan is to "Spread the Wealth"

At a recent door to door stop in Ohio, Senator Obama had a somewhat intimate conversation with a local plumber. The plumber asked Mr. Obama straight up if he believed in the American Dream. Obama said yes, of course. The hard working plumber went on tell Obama how he was a partial stake holder in the plumbing business with plans to purchase it all as soon as he could. In short, he was working his tail off to better himself and his family. He explained to Obama that he was being taxed for realizing his dream. Obama quickly rattled off his false 95% plan and then it happened. He told the plumber that the plan is "to spread the wealth around." Channeling Huey Long and sounding like the abortion quote he put forth about his daughters, he followed with "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too." Read as they will have success because of your work, not theirs.

"Hard work is damn near as overrated as monogamy." One of my favorites from the ole guy from Louisiana. But, I have a new take on his old fascism quote...."Is socialism ever comes to America, it will be wrapped in an American flag and be carried by the most liberal man in the nation, Barack Obama."
