    This is stunning, even though the question was flawed because many of the respondents probably had a different idea of what "distributed" means than Obama has. And lots of liberal/left propaganda and demogogy is based on the manipulation of equivocal words.

    I'm about as far from welfare as possible and I still think there is something wrong with the distribution of wealth in this country. We have been moving in the wrong direction and the middle class is losing out.

    The recent polarization of wealth at the top wasn't happenstance. It was policy. Now that policy is approach conclusion, and all Americans will once again have a level playing field.

    So you are agreeing that we must give money to people who don't pay taxes?
    Let's have more corporations leave our country and have more people in welfare. I guess this is a good way to look at things if you're a socialist? :rolleyes:

    realy it was a poll of people on welfare?

    Get a clue and post some facts . I dare you. Facts are those things that are true, based on evidence in case you did not know. But you feel free to just attack the poll based on what you want , rather then facts.

    I know 8 year olds that debate better then you.

    It could be a very true poll. There are a large number of lazy people who do not want to work for what they have, they would rather take it from those who worked hard for what they have. It does not mean we have to accept it. I for sure will fight socialism to my death.

    oh ok I stand corrected

    there are a large number of "cultured" people who would rather take your money than get their own freakin money


    hmm not sure I buy this but
    ok..

    either way they want YOUR money instead of getting their own money

    When I want more money i work on sunday or I take over time or I paint someones house over a long weekend

    Exactly how isn't the playing field level? Many hard working people are still obtaining success. Perhaps you just want it given to you?

    Where did this "distribute" crap come from anyway? It's idiotic terminology, which makes it sound like there is a big warehouse somewhere, and they "distribute" wealth to everyone, but they screwed up and some got too much money.

    In a market economy, in a free society, wealth is >>>EARNED<<<, not "distributed".

    People who want "distributions" should go to where they do that already - cuba and north korea.

    A healthy person who takes what someone else has worked for (and is not working toward self-sufficiency) is nothing but a leech. Attaching their worthless selves to others efforts. Lazy and entitlement syndromed losers.

    (this does not include Social Security because people worked for that or gifts freely given or those who are disabled or ill or those temporarily in need of welfare, free education and the like)

    McCain spreads the wealth also, the only difference is he spreads it amongst millionairs and billionairs
