I agree. If 2012 results in another Obama term, we will see true socialism and the death of business. people think Obama meant by 'spread the wealth around' to mean to the poor. he meant it about other countries and the inner cities and union leaders. he and his wife hate Americans.

Don't be a radical. Everyone should pay taxes but the rich shouldnt pay more than their fair share. How bout a user tax. Every one pays for what they buy and use. Everyone would pay but the rich shouldnt be taxed at a higher rate. They work for what they have and you don't have a right to any portion of it. To hell with income re-distribution. If you take working persons money away then there is no incenitive to work. Don't the idiots understand? If you screw me I'm going down and apply for a check too.

because they worked for it and the poor did not. your argument is the same as Hitler's when he wanted to destroy the Jewish people who gather wealth through their traditions of one heir, a patriarch. the rich are not obligated to the poor in any way other than the 30% we all pay. their 30% is much more than the poor man's 30%.

yes,the rich have enough money to spread around
The reason the rich have enough money to spread around is because they have worked and haven't looked for a handout.

The Poor should get a job! We were all created equal. I started off dirt poor but was determined not to stay poor and I am not. I have worked long and hard. Sometimes two or three minimum wage jobs.(Not so now!) Quit giving to the poor and put their asses to work. If they get a check they should make a contribution to society and I don't mean babies. No more freebies! Pick up trash, cut grass, clean buildings ect. It is no more than I have done.

Then the poor man should have some pride and get another job so he can pay more than 30%. People like you have made invalids of the poor. Tell them to work not sit on their ass. Entire generations have been crippled by the Govt. handouts. If there is no handout they will survive just as I have.

According to the IRS and you can check it out on Who Carries the tax burden". Top 50% of earners pay 96% of taxes. Top 25% pay 83% of taxes. Top 5 % pay 58% of taxes. Top 1% pay 36% of taxes. What is Obamas problem? He doesn't want anyone to have more than he has so he is out to destroy the system.

You are correct in everything except that the sheep are obviously already confused. If there is a picture attached of a crying child and a lonely polar bear that is going to die out soon, everyone seems willing to spend any amount to save it and naturally, the rich in America should get the bill.'Let's spread the wealth around' he said. Very sad people thought he meant to the poor. He meant to the world and causes that have no solution.
