I was thinking the other day about Obama’s plan to “spread the wealth around.” I’m about to go for a drive so ride along with me, if you will.
Obama, our new President Elect, has stated many times that he is going to spread the wealth around. So, those that have a lot will be taxed so that those that don’t have a lot can have more than they normally would or can’t currently afford. So, in essence, take from the rich and give to the poor. Modern day Robin Hood. Okay. Not a problem. I’m one of the people that stand to gain from this.
We have seen that most of the celebrities are behind Obama and have given him their support. These are the same people that are always telling us not to “illegally download” movies or music. This coming from some of the wealthiest people in the nation. I know they are going to get hit by Obama’s “over
250,000 200,000 153,000 income” tax plan. So, and here’s the stretch, why should these people gripe about us downloading their precious “intellectual property?” I mean, if they are worried about us “taking money out of their pockets” by downloading the newest CD, then how is that different than us “taking money out of their pockets” by them being taxed more? When you think about it, if I don’t buy their newest album, they will have less income and won’t be taxed as much. So, I would be helping them out if I “borrowed” their new album.
So, isn’t redistributing the wealth the same as us all sharing the benefits of our hard work? Doesn’t matter if it is money or some other tangible good. I don’t have the latest Diddy album. He worked hard for Obama to be elected. So, isn’t he giving me permission to “share” his money/music?
