Can you believe that Mitt Romney had a secret tape where he said 47% of Americans weren't paying taxes? It's pretty shocking. Unbelievable. How could he just lay out truth like that to an audience of people who want to have smaller government and more personal responsibility. Thankfully the media has been there to expose him. Although it's a little weird that they aren't trumpeting Barack Obama talking about how much he believes in redistribution, especially considering that President Obama seems willing to destroy the country to create "fairness".
Back in 1998, Barack Obama was recorded saying, "I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution."
"He actually believes in redistribution. Okay. This is really the one thing about Barack Obama that he has told the truth about over and over and over again, but nobody will believe him! Nobody! He said it before the last campaign," Glenn said.
"How many times does he have to say it before anybody believes him? Let me borrow a phrase from the president of the United States: Let me be clear here to the media, to the registered, to the voting independents. This is not an attack on Barack Obama. It is just a fact about Barack Obama. I understand that most Americans, Americans who believe in the Constitution and our founding principles, they don't want to believe that this man who now holds the highest office in the land, you know, might believe in, oh, I don't know, Karl Marx, but it's time to grow up now. It's time to look at facts. How many times does he have to say? He is a Marxist. Accept the reality and then do something about it. Either embrace Marxism, which is your choice. You can say, 'You know what? I believe in redistributive wealth, too, just like Karl Marx.' That is the main thing. That is the main tenet of Marxism: Redistributive wealth. Barack Obama has made it abundantly clear that that's what he believes in."
Glenn played a montage of clips of Obama deriding the wealthy and talking about redistribution of wealth - all in the name of fairness.
"Again, as I said before, this is all completely understandable. You would have to be ‑‑ you'd have to be some sort of deity, which we know, we know the press doesn't think he's a deity. You'd have to be some sort of amazing deity to grow up surrounded by Marxists, communists, socialists, people who are on the FBI watch list because they're so dangerous. His parents, his grandparents, his mentor, his college professors. He talked about hanging around with them all this college, the Marxists, the radical feminists, the anticolonial isolated. Even his spiritual 20‑year mentor, Jeremiah Wright, all the most important people in his life were strong believers in Marxism and Marxist principles. What chance did this guy ever have to understand capitalism? He's never been around it. Never. That's not a slam. I actually feel bad for the guy. He believes the lie that capitalism is evil and Marxism solves problems. I feel bad for him. He doesn't feel bad for me. And I don't want his opinion. I feel bad that he's going to actually find himself out in the parking lot of the White House in January kicking rocks going, what the hell happened? Oh, I don't know. Marxism doesn't work. But please, for those in the media and on the left, stop with saying, 'You're a racist. Oh, golly gee, the racists just say anything about Marxism.'"
"So the only decision the rest of us have to make is, is this still America? Is this an America that we understand, or have we changed? Is ‑‑ was Newsweek magazine right: We're all socialist now? That's really the only decision left. Are we still the America where a politician can't win a national election where everyone knows he's a Marxist? We fundamentally change, we fundamentally transform in 47 days. If we now know what we know and we open‑eye go right into it, he does fundamentally transform the United States of America in 47 days and that message has already been transmitted to Vladimir."
"If we are not, with the way we are awake now, the way we're awake on the Fed, the way we're awake on the GOP, the way we're awake now, everything changes. We fundamentally transform it again in 47 days, but more to a country that we understand, one that would earn the respect of the people around the world, one that would be truly lifting people up by helping them up, not enslaving them to a system of redistribution. Because see, the last part really about this redistribution is that it can't help anyone up because redistribution trains you to expect to take it from someone else. That's a life of slavery because you can't take it. You have to have somebody else take it for you. And that is a fundamental difference in our country as well."
"See, we've always been ‑‑ we're a representative government, and you can't elect someone, you can't hire someone to do something you yourself can't do. That's not the way it works. You have to have the right and then you hire somebody to represent you in that right. I can't go over to my neighbor and say, "You have too much money; I'm taking it.'"
"So how is it we're hiring somebody to go over to our neighbors and say, 'You have too much money; we're taking it and we're going to give it to these guys over here'? Fundamental transformation. That's the choice. A guy who says, 'I don't believe in redistribution of wealth. I believe in helping people, I believe in working hard, I believe we should protect people for what they've created.' Or, I'll do the wrong thing for the budget out of fairness because I believe in redistribution of wealth.' That's it."
