You vill be nice, und you vill enjoy it!

A revealing exchange took place during the Obama-O'Reilly interview regarding Obama's tax plan:

OBAMA: Well, but the problem is, if I am sitting pretty, and you’ve got a waitress who is making minimum wage plus tips, and I can afford it if she can’t, what’s the big deal for me to say I’m going to pay a little bit more?

O’REILLY: Because it inhibits…

OBAMA: That is neighborliness.

The funny thing is, I don't ever remember a time when government enforced 'neighborliness.' Because neighborliness is an impulse, or a way of life, not a tax plan. Americans are the most generous nation on earth. Look what we managed to donate after 9/11. No one made us. That is neighborliness.

It starts to sound like Orwell's 1984: War is Peace.Freedom is Slavery.Ignorance is Power. Taxation is Neighborliness

Another important aspect of the Obama tax plan that needs to be exposed repeatedly by the McCain camp is this: Obama plans to give tax credits to people who do not pay income taxes. 40% of Americans do not currently pay income taxes, because of Bush tax cuts (which, according to Democrats, only helped the rich...). Obama plans to increase taxes on the wealthiest 5% and give the money to people who do not pay taxes at all.

When O'Reilly said, in the above quote, "That's not income redistribution," that statement should have had a question mark at the end of it because it was either a question or an ironic statement. The Obama tax plan is, in part, about undoing welfare reform.

Thanks for the link. :)

Obama leans so far left I am shocked he does not fall over. Marxist income redistribution is not the American way.
