    This is a plan for global redistribution and I oppose redistribution in any form.

    So what you are saying is do not know that these two are basically synonyms, and you can add Black Liberation Theology and I am not going to explain it again.

    I will say this in a nut shell it's all variations of ways to use the stripping of all incentives to achieve wealth through forced redistribution, as are taxes, the main difference is the way you achieve the goal.

    They are incompatible with our form of economics and in the case of Obama's Black Liberation Theology it's is Anti-American, Anti-Constitutional, Anti-Capitalistic, and Anti-White people.

    Google, Socialism is the same as Marxism and read it for yourself and then watch these.

    Then Google Black Liberation Theology is built on Marxism, and watch these videos and you will not have ask about this or why I say Obama is Anti-American, ever again. Hell you might be able to spot him doing things to promote his Theology in damn near everything he does. He's just so very good at making people think he's not doing what we see because he lies so well.

    Like it or not, our economy is global and if most of the rest of the world cant pay for what we have to offer then we're in trouble.

    If we take money and invest it in developing and rebuilding countries in crisis, we put these countries into international economics and they become viable trading partners with the US. Think of it as an investment.

    Not that I'm supporting this Robin Hood proposal, but the idea of bolstering other nations does have a history of success.

    Jamesrage you're better than this, why did you thank this post. "Its crazy if you can't decide if you support something in less than 30 seconds." A "Google socialist Obama anti-American black liberatian marxist plot?"

    Re: Rich Nations Urged to Weigh 'Robin Hood' Tax to Help Poor

    It depends on how exactly the money is allocated and used. Firstly we gave them money which was either lost or squandered by bad governments there or they had moderately good governments which are poor and trying to reform to the neoliberal direction at the cost of hundreds of millions in reforms. So if were going to make them spend huge amounts of money to be able to be part of free trade arrangements and other 'club' benefits we might as well give back. Also the volatility of financial movements hampers the developing country the most so adding a tax makes sense for alot of different reasons. But good luck getting people to agree to anything.
