    I tend to watch Fox news to keep up with what the Republicans are saying and today Hannity had an old video about Obama talking about redistribution of income to give people a shot. They went off on this about Obama being a socialist.

    He may or may not be a socialist..... but since when is looking to provide equal opportunity a socialist ideal and anti-American. From Land Grant colleges to public education our founding fathers have been clear about the value of income redistribution for the purposes of providing people a shot at the American dream.

    Many people are against trying to provide equal results. I am aligned with this thought and would happily end Social Security. But almost eveyone supports redistribution to provide equal opportunity. Have Republicans become so blind in their hatred of Obama they have lost their minds????

    Robbery has nothing to do with providing equal opportunity.

    If you are all against redistribution for the purposes of equal opportunity it is not suprising you are getting your ass kicked in the current re-election. You guys have gone so far from the mainstream that only a minority can support the current Republican Party. Even our founding fathers would not support you morons.

    There is no redistribution for the purpose of equal opportunity. You might be the biggest numbskull on this board.

    It is not really a matter of like or don't like. I am just amazed the party has been so taken over the far right that this concept is considered socialism. I left the party for exactly this reason.

    I am mostly amazed at the party's never ending ability to shoot themselves in their foot by taking stupid positions. This dumb attack is just another example. The Democrats are worthless but sadly the Republicans are worse.

    What I am against is taking more and more money from those who have done well and redistributing into programs that do nothing but support the clueless, lazy, and downright stupid indefinitely you want to put that same money into programs that provide job training , or help you go back to school I'm all for that.
