Redistribution: Obama's Religion?

If there was ever any doubt in anyone's mind that Barack Obama was a socialist at heart, then listen to his own words in an interview with Marc Strassman at Loyola University in 1995, where he speaks specifically of the "collective" and "democracy with a small d" and how "It's not popular to say that and believe in a common good today."  Interestingly, regarding his collectivism ideology, Obama says, "That's the core of my faith."

And there is not a smidgen of difference between what Barack Obama said in that interview with Strassman in 1995 and his remarks at Loyola University in 1998, where he said that he "believe[s] in redistribution," or in 2007, when he  told Joe the Plumber that he thinks that "when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."  It just doesn't get any clearer than that.

Taking Obama at his word, now documented since 1995 and borne out in his actions and policies as president over the last four years, when Obama says, "It's the core of my faith," then there can be no doubt that redistribution is his true religion.  And if that's the case, then we have an admitted socialist living in the White House.
