Obama Calls for More Redistribution of Wealth, Declaring: ‘I Am My Brother’s Keeper’

Obama Calls for More Redistribution of Wealth, Declaring: ‘I Am My Brother’s Keeper’ By Terence P. Jeffrey April 2, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - In a campaign speech in Vermont on Friday, President Barack Obama referenced the biblical story of Cain and Abel in condemning what he called "you're-on-your-own economics" while arguing for a number of policies that involve government transferring wealth from one group of citizens to another—including providing public schools with more money for teachers’ salaries, freezing the interest rates on government-backed student loans, supporting companies developing biofuels, electric batteries and wind and solar power and funding scientists who are doing research on stem cells and climate change.

“I hear politicians talking about values in an election year,” Obama said. “I hear a lot about that. Let me tell you about values. Hard work, personal responsibility--those are values. But looking out for one another. That’s a value. The idea that we’re all in this together. I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. That’s a value.”

Being your brother’s keeper implies it’s YOUR money, time, and dedication. Stealing money from strangers to give to special victim groups is theft.

Start with the liberals' like John Kerry, Pelosi, the Kennedy's, Harry Reid's, Oprah, the tech freaks who support the maggot, the rest of the Democrats in Congress and the Senate, the Hollyflakes...

Make a public show of redistributing their wealth.

Let's see Obambi frog walking all his minnions to public housing after he gives away all their money...

Leftists at the sheeperal level have ONE driving motivation - to feel good about themselves with no personal sacrifice.

They can think of themselves as “good people” for advocating that the poor be given money, while giving none of it from their own pockets.

The leftists’ messiah calls it “social religion”.

He loves to try to use the bible to smack Christians and preach what it REALLY means.

*****I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. That’s a value.”*****

Is he keeping his brother in Kenya or his uncle illegally in the USA? Using his OWN money is he?

He should stop sending the wife,kids & entourage all over the globe and save ordinary tax-payers - that would have some value.

More proof of Obama’s ‘Christianity’: cite the words said by Cain to God - to try and ward off responsibility for his murder of Abel - as an argument for instituting socialism.

Brilliant.

But looking out for one another. That’s a value....No, it’s not. It’s a government redistribution scheme. I’ll take care of my own, thank you. The skank, the drug addict, the lazy bastards can ALL take a hike. As the saying goes “God helps those who help themselves” And it wasn’t meant He will help them who get into the till at the local liquor store.

He has a brother in Kenya living in a grass hut on about $3.00 per year. Keep him ZERO. . . . . .
That would make a good Political AD. Too bad Mr. Atwater is room temperature, he would use it in a heartbeat.

Everybody keeps reading this passage wrong. God NEVER said that Cain was his brother’s keeper. He said that Cain was his brother’s murderer. Read it closely.

That said, animals have keepers. Sane human adults don’t.

Exactly! If you read and understand the Bible, it puts a difference between charity and theft. If 0bama0 is really his brother's keeper as he says he is, why is his half-brother living in squalor in Kenya on about $12 per month while 0bama0 lives in the lap of luxury with multiple millions of dollars in the bank?

Exactly!

God puts a difference between charity and theft, but socialists don't. To them, charity begins with theft, not of their wealth, but everybody else's.

Look for massive, nation-wide, well-coordinated disruption immediately before and during the Republican Convention. Occupy was the trial balloon.

Any bets on how long before our first Affirmative Action Anus POTUS appears in a hoodie?

Of course, if Barry wants to be his brother’s keeper in the biblical sense, then Barry needs to use his personal resources to do so. Confiscating one person’s resources and giving them to another is not being one’s brother’s keeper; it’s stealing. Were Barry really concerned about others, he’d stop with the racial and economic politics and start working for, rather than against, America. I’m not holding my breath.

My word, even the Pilgrims disagreed with this approach.

Their crop yield increased notably once they began having everyone sow their own, instead of doing it collectively. The latter course saw fewer crops and more idlers. The former produced more food and more enterprise.

I believe the correct quote from the Bible is: "Am I my brother's keeper?"

Cain was trying to pull an "Obama" by misdirecting God with his phoney answer (like Obama, Cain underestimates other's intelligence).

My answer would be that even if I am MY brother's keeper, but I'm not YOUR brother's keeper.
