Obama Should Redistribute His Own Wealth First

I have no doubt that there are many people who sincerely believe that "spreading the wealth around" promotes the common good and that redistribution somehow makes for a more fair, just and equitable world.  Obama is one of these people.  He has famously stated "...I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." 

Some say that if Obama believes in redistribution, he should be helping his impoverished brother in Kenya, or his poor aunt in Boston.  Maybe.  But maybe Obama has already tried to help his family.  Maybe Obama's family is too proud and independent to accept help.  You and I don't know the situation, so let's give Obama the benefit of the doubt.  And private charity isn't really the issue here.  Obama is not promoting private charity...or at least that's not the thrust of his campaign message. Obama said he wants to improve the world through "redistributive change," and he plans increase taxes and fatten up the U.S. Treasury to make it happen.

So I said, fine Obama, if you can convince a majority of the voters to sign up for these risky schemes, go for it!  But then things got more interesting.  McCain said, "Nobody likes taxes. Let's not raise anybody's taxes."
"Well, I don't mind paying a little more," Obama responded.

WAIT A MINUTE!  He said what?

"...I don't mind paying a little more."


Hey Obama! There's good news.  If you really want to pay more, YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.  The United States Treasury will accept your donation.  This is no joke.  If you need to know more, click here.

Obama, this is your chance to lead by example.  Make a big deal about it, have a big fancy check-signing photo-op surrounded by smiling celebrities and politicians; heck, you could even invite that Obama Girl.  You could show us how much you hate those nasty Bush tax cuts and send an amount equal to what you saved because of those cuts.  With the millions you made from your book, I'm sure it would be a lot of money.  And while you're at it, you could ask your supporters to send money to the U.S. Treasury instead of sending it to you for your campaign.  Haven't you already gotten $600,000,000?  Time to start redistributing!

Obama, put your money where your mouth is and make a financial donation to the U.S. Treasury today!  You do believe in the things you say, don't you?

*Final Note: Obama is ahead in the polls.  Sitting out the election is a vote for Obama.  You don't even have to get out of your chair to help Obama win!

What better way to exhibit "neighborliness" than to give the first checks freely and without government compulsion? I want to see the likes of Warren Buffet, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, etc all in line to give the first money in the efforts to spread the wealth. What better way to get us all on board than to have the left give until it hurts? And yet, I sense that you would have to go to Switzerland first, if you wanted to cash those checks, no?

Congratulations for the blog, good job!

Also here, in Brazil, the MSM is doing its dirty and criminal support for the Messiah...but I am the one who's still hoping for a miracle.
