    Sickening. Anyone who can vote for him after listening to this should revoke his/her citizenship and move to Cuba or Venezuala. He hates the principles this country was founded on and the Constitution he's about to "swear to uphold."

    "...But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasnt that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution..."

    - Barack Obama (2001)

    And if this gets much press, here's what we'll hear:

    Obama Campaign: This is another attempt to smear us... It's racist...

    (Reporter): But didn't he say it?

    Obama Campaign: That doesn't matter. Bringing up something like this is clearly racist and dvisive.
  3. Aw what the heck, I'll bite.

    What's wrong with me wanting to "redistribute the wealth" in a way the benefits me? I'm not rich (yet) and if Obama's plan puts more money in my pocket then why shouldn't I vote for him right up until the time when I have enough money that he's taking money out of my pocket? All other things being equal (which they're not, of course) it would seem in my best interest to vote for the person who wants to give me the most money.

    I don't care what it's called ... I want to maximize my profit and minimize my losses. Why shouldn't I pick a president who helps me accomplish this?

    You could also go get a gun and start shooting people to take their money. That would put money in your pocket, right? Just start going Grand Theft Auto in real life.
  5. That's a silly comment so here's my reply. Doing the things you suggest are illegal. The law would then be against me and I would loose both my money and my freedom when caught. The risk is too high for the reward.

    because you would be making a decision that effects everyone using your personal needs as the deciding factor.

    Kinda like making decisions that are overall, longterm bad for your company but will in the short term allow you to hit your numbers and get your bonus.

    Its all BS

    Any man that would make that decision or one like it doesnt deserve his balls.

    (and probably has a myspace page)

    So I'm assuming that as a matter of principle because you are so anti socialism, you tore up your $1200 rebate check earlier this summer. Cause that was one of the biggest pieces of socialist crap I've seen in a long time and wow shocking it was supported by both the demons and the redumbs....but thats alright cause I know you tore up that check right.....:)
  8. Excellent point.

    To me, this new tape looks big. Like a game changer.
    On the other hand, those 100,000 cheering at his rallies not only couldn't care less about this, they actually agree with him.:eek:

    That's the important point. I have pretty much resigned myself to the idea that American's at this point think they want thats what they are about to get.
