He has stated,written or done exactly everything you need to know about him.
His outlook on the Constitution and "redistribution of wealth" (also known as socialism or Marxism depending on how deep you want to get into it) -here is a quote for you...
"If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I’d be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society.To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that…"
Apparently he doesn't realize that the Constitution was crafted in such a way so as to LIMIT government, via the states and individuals and believes it wrong that the Court didn't "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution." Never mind that the Courts are supposed to UPHOLD the Constitution, not "break free".
Also, as far as redistributing wealth, here is the part of the Joe the Plumber conversation that never made it onto the news - Joe the Plumber is in favor of the "flat tax" or "fair tax" and asked Mr Obama what he thought was a fair rate. Mr O's answer - 40%.
Voted repeatedly (4 times) against health care for babies born after an abortion failed. Just so you understand what that means - hospital staffs are not allowed to care for a baby after he/she has survived an abortion and is born, he/she must be left to die. This is happening NOW in his home state.
There is much, much more we could discuss here, but really, do we need to go any further than that?
I am not a big fan of McCain, but let my thoughts on Obama be clear - he is dangerous to the very ideas that this country was built on and made it great. Be prepared to start losing some of your liberties if this clown gets in.
Don't listen to what everyone else says or thinks about him. Just educate yourself on what HE has said, written and done. Turn off the TV and do your own homework.
