Government confiscation

We would’ve been better off if instead of letting ourselves be conned into calling them “subprime” mortgages, we’d have insisted on calling them what they are: “high risk mortgages.”

In the same way, instead of talking about Sen. Obama's “income redistribution,” we should be talking about “government confiscation.”

In terms of what Sen. Obama wants to do, it’s money the government would confiscate.

If those chosen to have their money confiscated can’t produce all the money the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Frank-Rangel government will demand, then those targeted people will have their property, including in some cases even their homes, confiscated by the agency acting on behalf of Obama’s government: the IRS.

As for income distribution, that can only happen after income confiscation by the government.

Often the income is not distributed fairly. Read up on the trial of Obama’s longtime close associate and convicted felon Tony Rezko to get an idea of how government confiscated money is distributed not to the needy but to those politically connected to the Chicago political machine that’s produced Sen. Obama.

If this guy wins, and it is beginning to look very likely that he will, my only solace is that out of Jimmy Carter's disastrous presidency, we got Ronald Reagan, who gave America some of her best tears. Maybe, just maybe, after Obama, another Reagan will come along and get our house in order. The judges, however, are going to be an issue for a long, long time. Steve in New Mexico

Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Program

Incredible as it sounds, civil asset forfeiture laws allow the government to seize property without charging anyone with a crime.

Good post, but not a new concept...

Steve in New Mexico: Dittoes to you. My greatest concern is the Supreme Court because the senile leftists who are ready to retire will wait until they're certain St. Barack is in office with a supermajority in the senate so the GOP won't be able to stop the far left from taking over the court.

It will take for the GOP to come along and clean up the mess that the left-wing illuminati will make, guarantee it.
