I don’t understand the socialist views of Obama. As defined in the dictionary “Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.” Is that not what he is trying to do with his wealth distribution? Welfare is a harsh word and I try to teach my children you have to earn what you receive, and not be hand fed. Those that have, have because of trials and hard work. Why should we work hard to be punished? This in my opinion is someone who has forgotten what it is like to struggle. A phrase comes to my mind everyone, “Socialism of the chair” meaning: a term applied about 1872, at first in ridicule, to a group of German political economists who advocated state aid for the betterment of the working classes. Lets cut taxes okay, better yet lets reform and cut spending in the government and reduce our deficit, and lets give back to the Americans via lower prices of goods, oil, food, energy, as well as the creation of higher wage jobs, and for those hard working minimum wage earners lets raise the minimum wage. That’s what American’s need not a hand out for Pete’s sake!
