I submit here a few quotes from Thomas Jefferson. If you’ve been listening to Mr. Obama since his conversation with “Joe the Plumber”, you’ll notice Obama hasn’t once denied he wants to take money from people who’ve earned it and give it to people who haven’t earned it or just don’t have their own money. I don’t care who you are, this is outright socialism, redistribution of wealth, and burglary of my person by the government of the powerful, not the people.
If I make a living it does not belong to the government to do with as it sees fit. Evidently Obama thinks I should “render unto Caesar” all my assets for his expert redistribution. NO NO NO!!!
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his father has acquired too much, in order to spare to others who (or whose fathers) have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, “to guarantee to everyone a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”(Treasury Department Tax Fact Sheets)
“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government. “
“Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.“ Does this sound like welfare to you?
“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”

This is what Jefferson had in mind, IMHO, when he wrote the Declaration. He wanted us out from under the despotic rule of King George. Well, he got his wish. Oh, if he could see us now. No longer are we ruled by one tyrant, but by over 500 between the House, the Senate, Pennsylvania Avenue, and the Supreme Court. What a fine mess this is!
Just keep in mind on November 11th, when you vote, Obama is an unrepentant Socialist.
