Joe the Plumber (Joe Wurzelbacher), now made famous by numerous mentions in the October 16, 2008 Presidential debate, was recently treated to straight talk from Barack Obama. Obama is a socialist, and he frankly admitted it to Joe the Plumber when he clearly stated he wants to "spread the wealth around."
Joe Wurzelbacher was asking an honest question about Obama’s tax policies, and was slapped with Marxist doctrine. Right in front of cameras and actual Americans in Ohio, Obama openly admitted the cornerstone of his liberal ideals: Tax those who have more and give it to those who have less.
In Obama’s world, it does not matter how hard people work and how much they earn. What matters is that everyone gets to enjoy the fruits of successful people. This is not American. This is Socialism. What ever happened to taking risks, working hard, and enjoying the rewards? Is that not one of the most basic pillars or American culture? How can we allow a man to be President of the United States of America when he supports such blatantly anti-capitalist views? If Obama’s tax plan sounds familiar to you, here is where you may have heard his philosophy before:
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
- Karl Marx
