Obama Is No Robin Hood

with 7 comments

The time has finally arrived when we will discover if our nation is to remain a Republic or will sink further into Socialism. The polls have tightened as the candidates deliver one final plea for our vote. The partisan news media continue in their quest to manipulate thought and push for the Obamanation.

This weekend, several news pundits treated us to an explanation of the Obama tax plan. Each compared it to Robin Hood’s mission to take from the rich and give to the poor. It’s clear that the lessons from the movie version or the writings of Howard Pyle were lost in politics.

The misleading spin Democrats place on this classic tale is tragic. The first and most important point is Robin Hood didn’t steal from rich citizens in order to give the gains to poor citizens like the Obama tax plan proposes.

Robin Hood robbed from rich corrupt politicians like Prince John, who stole from the people by levying oppressive taxes. Robin Hood simply returned the bounty to its rightful owners.

The real irony is that McCain by wishing to cut taxes for everyone is the real Robin Hood. In turn, the real scoundrel is Obama. He, like the character Prince John will demand a tyrannical tax placed on the group deserving of his wrath.

So the question is – do you want to vote for McCain (Robin Hood) who will allow you to keep much more of what you earn? Or, do you want Obama (Prince John) who promises to take what he needs, then use it for his own selfish march towards socialism?

Now is the time to take a stand  – Vote McCain/Palin.

  2. Hi LC,

    What bothers me most about this is that so many Americans identify with the down trodden peasants in the Robin Hood story, while they’re watching the news on their new TV and talking about it with their friends on their cell phone. Personally, I’m beginning to think that We The People need four years of Obama to wake us up to just how well off we are/were. Of course, then there’s the question of whether we can get rid of him once he’s in office? Then again, as Jefferson said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Looks like it might be our turn. Drat.

  4. Hi Tammi,

    Your problem is that you don’t drink enough. Heck, by 8:30 I was cheering for Al Franken. For that matter, I’m still cheering for a Franken victory. What better symbol for the Changed America than a liberal comedian Senator? The Democrats must be so proud.
