From a 2001 Chicago Public Radio Interview. Obama discusses his Marxist dream of ‘Redistribution of Wealth’.
If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I’d be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society.
To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.
Didja get that? Obama is sorely dissappointed in the fact that the Constitution doesn’t contain the Communist ideology of forced theft of assets from those who earned to those who didn’t.
Matter of fact, The War of Independence was fought, in large part, due to taxation without representation. The IRS and income tax are already a policy of legalized extortion, and Americans are fucking fed up with the burden.
Obama wants to take that a step further into Communist territory by putting constraints on free enterprise and capitalism; which will pave the way for wide-spread economic collapse. Geniuses like Obama tend to forget that when the U.S. sneezes in the market, the rest of the world gets pneumonia.
