"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?" Obama asked. "Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?"
"I believe we have to go forward," Obama said. "I believe we have to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love, you can make it here if you try. That's what's at stake in November. That's what is why I am running for a second term as president of the United States of America."
"Shared prosperity" is collectivism. Statism. Marxism. It means taking from those who produce goods and services to fund those who don't, which is certainly outside any legitimate function of government under the United States Constitution.
I wouldn't be all that concerned except... collectivism has failed every time it's ever been tried in all of human history, from Plato's Republic to the Soviet Union. It leads to despotism and tyranny, as surely as night follows day.
