The fact that Obama believes in redistribution is not the issue. In fact I too believe in redistribution. That is I believe that people who are more fortunate should voluntarily redistribute some of what they have to those who may be less fortunate than themselves. What Obama believes in is coercive redistribution, and not necessarily only from those who are more fortunate to those who are less fortunate. His policies have demonstrated that he believes in coerced redistribution from those who are less fortunate to well to do owners of wind and solar farms, big bankers, large agricultural interests, high salaried global warming advocates, abortionists, and a host of other special interests. The kind of redistribution that Obama believes in is much more appropriately called theft.
