Peanut Butter And Jelly Socialism

A few weeks ago, while campaigning, Barack Obama accused John McCain of stooping to low tactics by labeling him a socialist.

"I don't know what's next," Obama said at an outdoor rally. "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."

This statement actually shows either how stupid Obama and his speech writers are, or how stupid they believe the American Public to be.

News Flash for Barack Obama: Your peanut butter and jelly situation is called charity, not socialism or communism - and charity is a common American, and Christian, practice.

Now, had that kid have done something for you to earn that half of a sandwich, then you would have had an example of capitalism.

Socialism would be if the teacher walked up, took that sandwich away from you, pocketed a large portion of it, and then split the rest of the sandwich up evenly for all the kids that didn't have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. That would be a redistribution of wealth - and an example of the socialism you are planning for these United States of America!
