Hail to the Thief!: Obama's Plans Amount to Armed Robbery

An article at the Wall Street Journal is headlined "Democrats Target High Earners to Help Fund Health Plan."

I wonder how much of this is a Marxist attempt to redistribute wealth from the bourgeoisie to the proletariat, and how much of this is politicians pandering to the masses: "Vote for me, and I'll get you stuff with other people's money!"

It's sick is what it is. No one has the right to another person's property, and this proposal amounts to little more than legally sanctioned plunder.

Obama is a bandit not in the likes of Robin Hood (who stole not from the rich but from the Lords who had unjustly taxed the peasantry). Obama is a bandit in the likes of Jesse James: no matter how beastly his actions, he will be loved by the simple folk.


  1. Have you ever thought that there is a price for living in a country such as this?

  2. There should be no price for living. Life is a natural right. I do not live at the government's pleasure. It should be that the government lives at my pleasure. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and I am thwarted daily by people and officials who somehow feel entitled to the fruits of my labor.

  3. You should comment more often, DR.

  4. I'm working on the more frequent commenting. Unfortunately I don't know enough about economics, Obama, or the intricacies of the current political scene. Thus I can only make simple comments like these.

    I mean to say that there is a price for living in a society that is organized in a way such as ours. Where we are entitled to life, liberty, and property. Where those are protected.

  5. You need to pay closer attention, Glisto18. THe government already violates (and Obama wants even more to violate) my rights to liberty and property. Should I resist their tyrannical efforts, then they threaten my life.

    So explain again about this "price for living." Sounds more to me like I pay the price so that they allow me to live.

  6. To be honest I was playing Devil's Advocate. It failed miserably and I hang my head in shame for the futile effort.
