Joe the Plumber

In case you haven't heard of him, Joe the Plumber is the best thing that's happened to McCain in a couple of weeks. It all started when Joe Wurzelbacher, a plumber from Toledo, Ohio, challenged Barack Obama's tax plan. Obama responded, while trying to make it sound as nice as possible, that he wanted to "spread the wealth around." Occasionally, even Democrats can be honest. Obama is nothing more that a classic socialist, taking from the rich to buy votes from the poor, all the while decreasing the amount of economic growth made possible by rich companies hiring workers and developing new and better products.

Joe the Plumber makes Obama's dangerous and unfair policies easy for everyone to understand. He has worked hard (not been lucky) all his life to reach the arbitrary point of making more than $250,000 a year. Obama wants to make sure he makes it no further, hires no more workers, produces no more valuable services and has no more money to invest in other companies. He wants to steal Joe's money so that he can promise it to people who don't even pay taxes now, practically ensuring that our country's resources are allocated in the least productive way.

We don't need more government control of our money and our lives; we need less. We need them to get out of the way and let us do what Americans have always done: work hard and achieve the best way of life of the face of the earth.

UPDATE: Here's an exchange he had with Diane Sawyer.
