Redistribution Goes Mainstream

You know, I suspect that in the years to come an awful lot of people are going to wish that they had paid more attention to the criticisms of Obama-Biden and the socialist policies they- and now more and more Democrats- espouse.

Nicki at Liberty Zone explains (using some harsh language) the problems with Democrat plans to steal your 401(k) investments. You see, Democrats don't think it's fair that you get to save for your retirement because, golly, some people won't be able to save quite so much. Hence, the plan to take the money you've saved and share it out among everybody. Aren't you glad you voted for an Obama administration!

Then Ed at Hot Air notes the mainstreaming of Democrat talking points on redistributing wealth. We can't have some people owning more than others- why the very idea!

We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards redistributing wealth and they may be able to sustain it for a while but it doesn’t work in the long run.

It seems that Obama has made Democrats' mask slip- the rampant socialism, the out-and-out desire to take by force what you have earned and give it to those they think deserving, has come out into the open.

Take note- and make them face their words next election is my advice.
