The Obama Rosetta Stone The Obama Rosetta Stone - WSJ.com A "moral" argument. tell me is it "moral" to confiscate one's property when that property was not acquired through illegal means? " I would like some sort of evidence that every single "evil" rich person did not play by the rules or did not live up to their responsibilities. It seems Obama thinks that the responsibility of the rich is to pay for everything he wants. No prudent investment in these things were ignored by self aggrandizing politicians more concerned with getting reelected and securing their "legacies" than in doing the right thing. when the president said "it's time to do away with childish things" in his inaugural address, he obviously didn't include childish jealousies or class based vindictiveness. That's just hilarious. And when those estiamtes prove to be wrong, what will the president do? You guessed it.....raise taxes and not just on the "rich". Gee isn't that what I've been saying all along? In other words, Obama's ultimate goal is to tell you how much you should be able to earn.
