This book lays it all out in a logical, insightful, and specific manner.

They hope to achieve this basic change in America by expanding cities into regions that will all come under the control of the nearest cities.
James R. Holland
This book offers a very chilling picture of how Obama plans to spread the wealth from the suburbs to the inner cities.

This book was admittedly released at this time because Stanley Kurtz the author, feels that the facts included in it will awaken the voters in the suburbs to how Obama plans to abolish their communities and put them, their taxes and their schools under control of the Democrat big city mayors.

Kurtz details how Obama has long believed that the residents who fled the cities are racists and need to be dragged back into the cities to help solve the problems festering there. If Obama's plans for this forced redistribution became common knowledge, then it would be cause his re-election campaign to crash and burn.

Six short and to-the-point chapters entitled "Abolish the Suburbs, Manhattanizing America, In Up to His Eyeballs, Saul Alinsky Radical, A Suburb of the Mind, Redistribution Revolution, Fooled, Ruled, and Schooled" and "Obama in a New Light" plus lots of sources and notes and a good index make up the guts of this tome.

For those naïve suburban voters who have only been paying attention to mainstream media, if following the news at all, they don't realize that the so-called trillion-dollar stimulus plan was really just a poverty program that was intentionally mis-named to fool the voters. That's why it had almost no effect and certainly produced no improvements.

For more than two decades, Obama and his fellow radical community activists, agitators have been working toward punishing all those people who voted with their feet and fled the cities and left them filled with only poor and minority residents. "Suburbs are for sellouts...For Obama, the suburbs are a defect in the very structure of American life. That is why the president backs his old friends' movement to abolish them."

"'We are battling apartheid in America.

Stanley Kurtz is essentially warning the secular suburbanites that Obama intends to continue severely damaging them. These are the naive voters who were conned by Bill Clinton and the "New Democrats." They were told it was now safe to cast their ballots for Democrat candidates because the party had mostly abandoned the anti-capitalist mindset of the McGovernites. The differences between conservative Republicans and "center-left" Democrat politicians concerning economic matters were supposedly next to zilch. Barack Obama's election would supposedly continue these common sense measures. The current president, however, is existentially hostile towards suburban living. Those Americans moving outside of the city are considered to be racist thieves. The alleged victims of capitalism living in the big cities were abandoned. Obama is seeking revenge. The author provides ample evidence to support his thesis. This book should derail Obama's reelection bid. Spreading The Wealth is indeed that important. Make sure you purchase a copy.

"Rusk is out to annex your suburb and pick your pocket. If annoying principles like individual liberty, voluntary association and self-government stand in his way, that's just too bad. The contradiction between hard-left redistributionism and traditional American values could hardly be drawn more sharply." Page 125

Most Americans have probably never heard of David Rusk. Nor have they heard of Mike Kruglik, Peter Dreier, Linda Hammond-Darling or Myron Orfield. Each of these individuals are close political allies of President Barack Obama and are advocates of a movement called "regionalism" a/k/a "metropolitanism" a/k/a "smart growth". These and a host of others in the Obama administration are working behind the scenes quietly laying the groundwork for policies that will unquestionably "fundamentally transform America" should President Obama secure a second term. For now they are laying low knowing full well that if their radical intentions become common knowledge prior to the election Barack Obama will probably be defeated. But author Stanley Kurtz in on to them. In his compelling new book "Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing The Suburbs To Pay For The Cities" Kurtz lays it all out for the American people in a logical, straightforward and easy-to-understand presentation. If you are an affluent, college-educated suburban voter you especially have cause for concern. Likewise, if you reside in rural areas your life could change dramatically as well. The dirty little secret is that Obama's "regionalist" agenda is a direct attack on a large segment of his own middle-class supporters. Believe me when I tell you that this is a book that Obama and his minions definitely do not want you to read.

All you socially liberal white suburbanites who support and identify with Obama because he thinks and sounds like you... you have no idea what is coming.

I just completed Stanley Kurtz's most recent indictment of Barack Hussein Obama. In analyzing Obama's redistribution policies and Alinsky tactics, I've always wondered what exactly was Obama's real endgame. Now I know. Obama is the first anti-American President and is absolutely committed to destroying the very attitudes, traditions, and values that made American freedom and prosperity possible - all in the name of social justice and income equality.

I think Obama's endgame is insidious and diabolical. This book lays it all out in a logical, insightful, and specific manner. I've already recommended it to several patriots who don't want to see or experience the fundamental transformation of America. I can't wait to talk with them after they complete Spreading the Wealth.

Thanks Stanley for exposing the deceptive Alinsky charlatan who is our current President and his grand plot. I can only hope that this book will help sound the alarm so that there never is a second term for Barack Hussein Obama.
