This was dug up recently. It's an interview of Obama from 2001. Just wondering what your thoughts are. YouTube - Obama Bombshell Redistribution of Wealth Audio Uncovered Some of the highlights: "And to that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren court -- It wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted and Warren interpreted it in the same way that generally is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the federal government can't do to you but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted and one of the, I think the tragedies of the civil rights movement. Was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that." Can we please stop with the "Obama isn't a radical" charade? He says the most extreme supreme court we've ever had "didn't go far enough." I'll admit I don't have the vast knowledge of understanding that the all knowing professor of law, but I could have sworn the founding fathers put constraints in the constitution for a reason. Mainly so that the federal government wouldn't become to powerful and so that it would leave the individual alone. Notice the one part, "Says what the federal government can't do to you but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf." He interprets it to be an incomplete document that only states what the government can't do to you, not what the government MUST to on your behalf (ironically even if you don't want it to...). Obama's "spread the wealth around" comment to Joe the plumber was an insight to what he actually believes. Socialism. He wants the government to control the country's wealth. Obama is a socialist. But of course, it's all just another smear right? It must be part of the vast right wing conspiracy (f.y.i., that's the code name for anyone who opposes socialism).
