Barry O: The So-Called Founders Didn’t Redistribute Wealth


***MONDAY UPDATE: Here’s why these quotes are so plausible — Barry has been on board the redistribution train for a long time. This is a link to an NPR interview with Barry, circa 2001, in his own words and voice. Enjoy.***

There are many who will defend the ‘free market.’ But who will defend the single mother of four working three jobs. When a system is allowed to be free at the expense of its citizens, then it is tyranny.

… the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy.

This is from the college thesis written by Barack Obama.

I’d give you the rest for context, but it’s sealed like a state secret. Hmmmm.

If Barry has his doubts about the constitution, is it okay for me to have my doubts about him?

Update Friday Afternoon: The source for this particular Obama endorsement of redistribution appears questionable.
