This article refers to Obama as “Robin Hood,” stating that he will be “confiscating money from the rich to give to the poor.” This is in reference to his statement that he will take the profits of small-business owners and “spread the wealth around” to those with lesser incomes.
That does not mean that he is Robin Hood, because Robin Hood stole from the GOVERNMENT and gave the money back to the taxpayers. See, the reason the people in the Robin Hood tales were in the state they were in was because the Sheriff of Nottingham was confiscating the wealth of the citizens to make himself rich.
I believe that anyone who advocates taxing successful people to give to the poor underclass is rather more like another historical figure- Karl Marx.
In conjunction with McCain’s claims that he wishes to take oil company profits and redistribute them, the differences in this election are of degree only.
