There are several important points to notice in the above quotation. This Obama said in 1998, long before he had any idea he was going to run for the US Senate-much less the presidency. I will promise you this, that Obama would never have made this statement or would he have written the book, "Dreams from My Father," had he had any idea he would have been running for national office.
We see in this quotation the sneaky Obama, in that he patently states that redistribution of what one group has to another must be done in some tricky manner by which the government gathers the money and then "facilitates the redistribution."
Let's look at four of Obama's plans to prove he believes what he says. Cash for Clunkers, Cap & Trade (which has been enacted by his EPA without the trade), Hillary's promised to provide the IMF with $100 billion for poor African governments, and Obama's insistence that the "rich pay their fair share by paying" even "higher tax rates than they are currently paying." Karl Marx invented the concept of a steep progressive income tax.
When you hear Obama say, as he has many times, that the rich are getting richer and they're doing it off the backs of the poor-he is spitting out the exact words of the Democrat Party's founder: Karl Marx, the author of the "Communist Manifesto."
The statement shows that Obama has a cynical, Marxist view of the economy, for to him the economy is static. That is, there is only so much wealth-and that wealth must be forcibly shared by means of powerful centrally-run governments forcibly collecting and then redistributing. This goes against an absolute empirical fact: that people can start new businesses and grow them, which also grows wealth. Other people can invest in those businesses, which can help them grow, and their own wealth can grow.
To Obama redistributing the nation's wealth is not political, because he's not going to inform the people about what he's going to do. It is technical-strictly how the goal of wealth redistribution can be achieved behind-the-scenes without having to deal with the problem of politics.
This paragraph also shows that Obama is deeply steeped in government-speak-a jargonist language clouded in phrases that government bureaucrats and leftists understand. Yet normal people are left in a fog after hearing it. You see a lot of nouns, such as "redistribution," instead of verbs, such as "redistribute." It is simpler to mask meanings using nouns rather than verbs, but when verbs are used they usually are tied with vague nouns.
The following words and phrases tell us a lot about Obama and that he is well-trained in government-speak: innovative; delivery systems; actually effective; trick; technical issues; political issues; government systems; pool resources; facilitate some redistribution; at some level.
How Obama will accomplish his goal of redistributing wealth is vague. All we know is that a trick is needed, and we can pull out of this sick, twisted statement that the government must carry out some type of plan to accomplish his Marxist ideal of forcibly taking from one to give to another he deems worthy of receiving the stolen "resources."
This has been our president for the last four years, and his record speaks for itself.
