Discuss Kathy's answer to: Assessing the President

Tell us how you think President Barack Obama has handled the economic crisis so far. What's he done right? And what's he gotten wrong?

Born into a poor family, Joe is 55 years old and has lived in a small city all his life. He is a carpenter. Years ago he built a small apartment complex. He worked hard to make the complex financially successful. He then used the money he made on the complex to build a second apartment building. With years of hard work and financial sacrifice, Joe now owns ten apartment complexes that give him

, his wife and four children a really nice annual income. The apartment complexes are Joe’s only wealth and he intends to pass them along to his children when he dies. As times goes on, Joe plans to use his profit to build even more apartment complexes. 

Then along comes President Obama. Obama tells Joe that he has become too wealthy and the government needs to redistribute his wealth. Obama says that he wants to get a law passed (really a tax increase) that would permit the federal government to take three of Joe’s apartment complexes for redistribution to those who do not own any apartments. 

Guess what would happen if Obama is allowed to take Joe’s hard-earned assets? First, Joe decides that he will never build another complex since the government would take it anyway. Second, the three apartment complexes that the government seized are trashed by the new owners and have to be torn down.

Mr. President, redistribution results in losses to everyone. In the history of this planet, redistribution has never worked and it will not work in America.

Poor is an attitude, Broke is a temporary situation.....UNLESS THIS MORON TAKES THE REST OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY. There is no such thing as freedom of choice, babies NEVER choose to die.

FAR RIGHT EXTREMIST CAN ONLY COPY AND PAST. Even you must realize you are too stupid to give your own opinion and are desperate to release your insane hate because you continue to post on a question no one s on. You are a admitted single issue voter so you have no credibility. YOU WILL POST ANY RIGHT WING LIES AND HATE IN HOPES OF ADVANCING YOUR SINGLE ISSUE AGENDA. AMERICAN PATRIOT IS ALREADY GOING TO VOTE REPUBLICAN AND I AM NOT DUMB ENOUGH TO DO THAT. SO YOU ARE NOT GOING TO CHANGE MY MIND.


BLAH BLAH BLAH and you can only see through your rose colored glasses.  Just because I copy and paste doesn't mean I don't know what I am talking about.  You, unfortunately are too stupid to know the difference between the lies and the truth.

You are a single issue voter. You have no credibility not to mention you are as dumb as a rock. You know nothing and do not have the intelligence to understand the simplest of things. Far right extremists only understand hate and will post any lie in hopes of advancing your single issue agenda. If good hard working Americans would not be hurt by the republicans agenda i would hope you stupid trailer park right wing extremist would get your wish. I would laugh at you fools all the way to the bank. Under Romney's plan you low income loser would have to pitch in and pay income tax. Not to mention you would lose all safety nets.

Even you know your stupid. Why do yo continue to post on a question no one is on? Because on other questions they don't copy and paste. You would show how dumb you are if you had to give your own opinion. I don't know why that would bother you. Everyone knows you are a far right extremist and everyone knows they are not very bright. It doesn't bother American Patriot aka Rocmike. It proves it is a moron 16 hours a day.


Yet, you are still here....what an idiot!  Guess that makes you a stupid far left extremist and not very bright.  YOU LIVE ON THIS FORUM policing everybody who you don't like.  If it isn't this one it is somewhere else on aol answers.  I see your crap everywhere.  Everybody knows you are an idiot, you prove it everyday.   I don't give a damn whether you vote for Hitler OBAMA or whomever.  WE DON'T NEED YOU TO VOTE FOR ROMNEY!  Your vote will be cancelled out by someone smarter.
