Passing the wealth along

Joe the Plumber has become an overnight sensation among people who are tired of the government taking their money and punishing success. Here's the video where Obama reveals to Joe his economic plan for the redistribution of wealth - socialism.

Forced benevolence through wealth redistribution is never charitable or the solution. It is we, not the state, who are told to love and serve our neighbor.

Obama said, " I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

When "I" spread my wealth around, it is good for others. In a free society, when the state takes my wealth and redistributes it for me, it is good for no one. It is stealing and our freedom is diminished.
