In a campaign speech in Vermont, President Barack Obama called for increased governmental redistribution of wealth, saying, “I am my brother’s keeper” (“Obama Calls for More Redistribution of Wealth,” CNSNews.com, April 2, 2012). He called for more government spending on everything from climate change research to alternative energy to teachers’ salaries. Socialists have bankrupted the nation, but they continue to call for more deficit spending, more redistribution of wealth, more humanistic (alleged) do-goodism, all in the name of compassion. If Barack Obama wants to be his brother’s keeper by supporting all sorts of starry-eyed projects, let him do that with his own money, but socialists want to “do good” with other people’s money. This is because it is not really about doing good, it is about empowering themselves.
