From Each According to Their Means To Each According to Their Needs: McCain's Last Play

In response to a recent post, I received this astute comment with an advertising idea for John McCain.


(voiceover)From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. This was the philosophy of Karl Marx.

When a hardworking plumber, concerned about Barack Obama's tax plan, asked him why he was going to raise his taxes here is how Barack Obama responded.

(Cut to the video clip of Obama saying this)I don't want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everyone that is behind you. They have a chance for success too.

(voiceover)We don't need a President whose tax policies were inspired by Karl Marx, nor do we need a president who thinks he is Robin Hood, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. We need someone who understands our country and our history.

Barack Obama. . . Not ready to lead.

(John McCain voice over)I'm John McCain and I approved this message.


In fact, Joe Biden was recently asked about this Karl Marx quote in a recent interview.



If you think the comparison between the philosophy of Karl Marx and the policies Barack Obama, look at it this way.

What do you think it is when someone thinks that "when you spread the wealth around that's good for everybody". Of course, it's as Karl Marx said.

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS


Still not convinced...Let's try it this way. Barack Obama has promised to raise the taxes of the top five percent as much as an extra ten percent. Furthermore, he will raise the capital gains taxes on these same folks, re install the inheritance tax, and raise the corporate tax. What will he do with this money? He will give tax breaks to everyone below them.

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

You still aren't convinced. Who does Barack Obama intend on giving a tax cut to? It's to the middle class of course? How does he plan on paying for this tax cut? He plans on raising taxes on the wealthy of course.

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

If you still aren't convinced, just listen to Joe Biden himself from the very interview I have embedded

All we want is to focus on the middle class and to give them a fighting chance. That's why we focus all of our efforts on the MIDDLE CLASS and giving them a tax cut...while John McCain gives a tax cut to the wealthiest people and corporations.

Like I said again,

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

Barack Obama's tax policies, and frankly economic policies, are classic Marxian policies. From the blatant class warfare, to income redistribution, to his insistence thatjobs be created by the government, his economic platform is a reincarnation of Karl Marx.

John McCain needs to say it, say it, and say it again.

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

On the stump, in interviews, and in every commercial they can spare...

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

When Barack Obama talks about giving the middle class a tax cut by raising taxes on the wealthiest what he's really saying is...

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

When Barack Obama says he wants to spread your wealth around what he's really saying is

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

When he proclaims that the last eight years has created an income gap that he will resolve what he's really saying is.

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

McCain needs to say it again and again until he forces the media, like this Florida reporter, to ask it of the Obama campaign. That's because you can't get around this fact. What's the Obama economic philosophy...

FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR MEANS TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS

And once elected, joined by a Congressional Super Majority, Obama's promised new Civilian National Security Force (read Gestapo) will visit each of us at our homes to take us to Alinsky/Ayres style reeducation camps!

Boy oh boy, sounds like tons of fun to:)

Good grief. If he's does that he'd just be preaching to the lunatic right wing fringe, i.e., people of your persuasion. He's already tried the "socialist" angle, combined it with "Joe the Plumber," and that went over like a lead balloon. What, you think if he keeps repeating "From each according to his means, to each according to his needs" again and again and again and again it's going to magically persuade the public that Obama's a communist or something? He's already repeated "Joe the Plumber" about 50,000 times, and it hasn't helped him. The fundamental reason these tactics have failed is that there's nothing radical about Obama's tax plan. It's a perfectly reasonable center-left tax plan. Wacko anarcho-capitalists view it as "socialism" or "communism," but the rest of the population is not going to be persuaded.

Actually he would be preaching to the social populists as Dick Morris referred to them and Joe the Plumber did work. In the aftermath of the debate, McCain's number got better then they ebbed as the debate faded, Powell endorsed Obama, and his superious funding kicked in again.

The message that Obama wants to take in order to spread the wealth is the only chance McCain has, however he needs to sharpen and focus the attack.

Your whole angle encapsulates why McCain is failing. McCain doesn't offer any real plan to help the economy or the country. All he does is attack Obama (i.e., personally) and what Obama offers, calling him and his plans "names." He has no positive vision himself. You offer nothing but more "names" for McCain to call Obama and his economic plan (i.e., your advise is that he should call Obama a "Marxist" and his plan "Communism"). You see that McCain's name-calling has failed, but you don't see that this is because the whole name-calling strategy is flawed for this election year. Rather you think his name-calling should just become more outlandish and virulent, then it will work. This year, people are looking for a candidate with a positive vision to help them during these devastating times, not someone who has no vision or plans himself but just angrily flails around and attacks the other guy and his plans.

Oh please, the only thing that we have heard from Obama is that McCain will Bush's third term. Attacking the opposition is not a partisan issue. All politicians do it.

McCain does offer a vision. Keep taxes the same for everyone and cut the capital gains and corporate tax. The corporate tax in this country is the second highest in the Western world just under Japan.

The attacks go both way but both have a solution. It just depends which you want. Do you want income redistribution or do you want a pro growth strategy?
