Obama in 1998: I Believe in Redistribution

Posted: Sep 18, 2012 3:31 PM

President Obama has done a phenomenal job of keeping his radical views under wraps while implementing them quietly through legislation, czars and government regulations. We got a glimpse of Obama's European style distribution ideology back in 2008 when he told "Joe the Plumber" he wanted to spread the wealth around.


Fast forward to 2012 and new audio of Obama in 1998 at a conference has surfaced, revealing once again his redistribution ideology. Ironically, the audio also shows Obama discussing Chicago public schools where unionized teachers are currently on strike.

"Pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution at least at a certain level to make sure everybody's got a shot."

Hear that? Obama doesn't believe everybody has "a shot" unless you're taking from some and giving to others, implying those who have more keep those with less down unless government "pools their resources." Pooling their resources, or in other words, embracing the ideas of socialism and communism.
