Obama Is Really A Revolutionary
  

The most radical US President -- ever!  (07:09) -- YouTube link
    
Dr. Richard L. Rubinstein, Yale fellow, "Distinguished Professor of the Year", and Harvard Phd, states that Obama's intention is to "correct the historical mistake of the creation of the state of Israel."  Dr. Rubenstein states that Obama due to his family heritage is extremely pro Muslim -- to the point of "wanting to see the destruction of Israel."

More Confirmation Of Obama's Socialism
J. Robert Smith says, make no mistake, President Obama's "Socialist Realignment Strategy," the strategy Obama and his cohorts are employing to impose socialism on an unwilling majority, has the stuff of a coup -- a coup using legislative and executive authority to ram through radical changes that empower Washington politicians and bureaucrats as never before.  Americans have witnessed this strategy in action since Obama assumed power in January of 2009.  Stopping ObamaCare would be a critical practical and symbolic victory in the war for freedom.

If ObamaCare and Obama's other initiatives aren't stopped, then Obama and the left will have severed many of the vital cords that connect the republic to its founding.  Americans will be less free, and less in charge of their lives.  The American experience will effectively end, and a European socialized America will begin.

As Lord writes, the war for the nation's heart and soul is now commencing in earnest.  Beginning today, Speaker-presumptive John Boehner and the House Republican majority will be the frontlines in the fight to stop, then rollback, Obama's and the left's attempt to radically transform an unwilling nation.  The coming fight will take enormous courage and resolve; there can be no wavering in Republicans' commitment to principles.  Conservatives need to furnish the backbone.

The stakes have been -- and are -- huge.  America stands at a great divide.  Victory in the battles ahead will either reaffirm the nation's commitment to the Founders' vision or largely scrap that vision.  Understanding and accepting Obama's socialist motives, intent, and strategy are imperative to turning the tide and defeating the left in the coming weeks and months.

1996 Ad:  Obama Event Sponsored By Socialist Group

Aaron Klein is reporting that A 1996 print advertisement in a local Chicago newspaper shows Barack Obama was the speaker at an event sponsored and presented by the Democratic Socialists of America, the DSA.

The panelists at the 1996 DSA event included Obama, then a candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; William Julius Wilson, a longtime DSA activist from the Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago; Professor Michael Dawson from the University of Chicago; and Professor Joseph Schwartz, a member of DSA’s National Political Committee.

According to the archive of the DSA’s March-April 1996 newsletter, New Ground, Obama reportedly addressed a crowd of over 300 people, discussing a theme from his campaign, “What does it take to create productive communities?” Obama reportedly outlined how government can play “constructive” roles in bettering society.

Top Democratic Socialists of America members have been closely linked for years to Obama.

Stating The Obvious
GOP Rep. Paul Broun (Ga.) rebuked Obama using perhaps the sharpest language among his Republican colleagues following the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Broun took to Twitter during the address, accusing Obama of believing in socialism.
    
    
Like other members, Broun live-tweeted the address, posting 40 times during the speech that lasted over an hour.

"Freezing spending at record high levels is not making tough decisions," he also tweeted.
Constitutional Contempt
Doug Hagmann says, this is the most difficult report update I’ve ever filed on any investigative matter on which I’ve worked, and certainly the most important.  It strikes directly at the heart of the national security of the United States, which has been under attack from within for the last 75 years or longer.  What exists today began with people who are long dead, but whose agendas live on through others to whom the torch has been passed.  It is the proverbial rabbit hole that goes deeper than most can fathom.

At center stage stands Barack Hussein Obama, the man who currently holds the highest office in the free world.  He is the contemporaneous result of decades of treasonous deceptions and socialist penetration into our government that we were warned about by Senator Joe McCarthy, a man whose legacy has been deliberately rewritten so that the mere mention of his name evokes undeserved revulsion by the majority of people in America.  Even though McCarthy has not been with us for over 50 years, his investigative work as a U.S. senator figures prominently into our current state of affairs.

Before you accuse me of taking leave of my senses, I ask that you research the declassified revelations of the 1990s that came about after the break-up of the Soviet Union.  Consider the documentation that was exposed, such as the Venona Papers, and other once classified yet still heavily redacted documents released under the radar to be the predecessor of WikiLeaks.  Look carefully at what McCarthy was trying to warn Americans about, and then analyze for yourself the well crafted methodology of marginalization through obfuscation used by those in power, those in the media, and even many in Hollywood.  You will find that what existed over 50 years ago not only exists today, but has been magnificently refined.

The marginalization of McCarthy and the deliberate expunging of historical records exposing the Marxist, Socialist and Communist infiltration into nearly all levels of our government of that era explains why we still find ourselves questioning not only the eligibility status of our Barack Obama, but the majority of his background.  It is an undeniable fact that Barack Hussein Obama has refused to provide authenticated evidence of his eligibility to occupy our White House, the house of the American people.  In fact, he has fought the release of records that would prove, once and for all, this most basic issue, and further refused to release documents that would provide insight into America’s most mysterious president.

The mystery behind Obama extends well beyond the birth certificate controversy, although that has grown into the most recognizable issue of late.  For better or worse relative to the truly important aspects of Obama, the actions and behavior of Hawaiian Governor Neil Abercrombie have fueled speculation among "Birthers," a pejorative term assigned to Americans who care about constitutional issues and the rule of law.  Over a half-century ago, it’s likely that Birthers would have been referred to as "McCarthyites" instead.  The names have changes, but the template of marginalization is the same.

Students of history -- true history, not the revisionist type -- would do well to recall the communist infiltration of the U.S. State Department and other federal agencies under the watch of Roosevelt and Truman (and Obama).  History shows that they were aware of what was taking place, but for reasons that are still applicable today, allowed the progression of infiltration to continue.  Like a game of geopolitical chess, wars were fought under pretense while the coffers of the power elite hedged their bets by financing all sides in these conflicts.  Nation building and the implementation of "fundamental change" of America was underway long before Obama uttered that promise on which he is delivering.

Obama's Robust Defense Of Statism
Andrew Cline says on Tuesday night, we, the American People, were swindled by Obama, not merely out of cash, but out of our most cherished national ideal: independence.

The deception was deliberate.  With all the charm he could muster, Obama, who spent the last two years elongating the tentacles of the leviathan delivered an aria of adoration for the symbol of global prosperity and ingenuity: the American entrepreneur.
    

"At stake is whether new jobs and industries take root in this country, or somewhere else.  It's whether the hard work and industry of our people is rewarded…the stock market has come roaring back.  Corporate profits are up.  The economy is growing again."

    
My god!  Barack Obama is delivering Mitt Romney's speech.
   

"No country has more successful companies, or grants more patents to inventors and entrepreneurs…. What's more, we are the first nation to be founded for the sake of an idea -- the idea that each of us deserves the chance to shape our own destiny… We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world."

   
The man who bore the law that compels each of us to buy health insurance says the very foundation of our nation is "the idea that each of us deserves the chance to shape our own destiny."

The incompatibility of Obama's signature legislative accomplishment with what he identified on Tuesday night as the founding idea of our country is as plain as the nose on George Washington's face.  Obama's goal on Tuesday: blur the line.  Make the two seem closer than they really are.

So he spoke with enthusiasm (summoning passion for the topic was beyond even his considerable gifts) of America's independent spirit, the father of our robust innovation culture.
  

"What we can do -- what America does better than anyone else -- is spark the creativity and imagination of our people.  We're the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook."

   
Yet just when it appears that this is a speech made in tribute to the independent American entrepreneur, Obama reveals the real hero: the state.
    

"Our free enterprise system is what drives innovation.  But [with Obama, there is always a "but"] because it's not always profitable for companies to invest in basic research, throughout our history, our government has provided cutting-edge scientists and inventors with the support that they need.  That's what planted the seeds for the Internet.  That's what helped make possible things like computer chips and GPS.  Just think of all the good jobs -- from manufacturing to retail -- that have come from these breakthroughs."

    
Bait… and switch.

Is Obama the Lenin Of America?
Sam Blumenfeld says there can be no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama is a deeply committed socialist intent on destroying the American capitalist system and our Constitutional form of government.  Anyone who reads Stanley Kurtz’s new book, Radical-in-Chief, will come away with that conviction.  Kurtz writes:
    

From his teenage years under the mentorship of Frank Marshall Davis, to his socialist days at Occidental College, to his life-transforming encounters at New York’s Socialist Scholars Conferences, to his immersion in the stealthily socialist community-organizer networks of Chicago, Barack Obama has lived in a thoroughly socialist world….

At every turn, Obama has disguised his socialist past, sometimes through grievous sins of omission, sometimes through opaque and misleading pseudo-confessions, and at other times through outright lies.  To say that Obama has lied about his past doesn’t quite do justice to what’s been going on….  By hiding his core political convictions, the president has systematically deceived the American people.

    
Indeed, it was at the New York Socialist Conferences that Obama learned why he had to become a skilled liar.  He learned in New York that if socialists were ever to achieve high elective office, they would have to become stealth socialists, never admitting to being socialists while promoting a socialist agenda.  Since most Americans don’t know the difference between liberalism, progressivism and socialism, it would be quite easy to deceive the electorate.  And even after it became known that Obama had connections with such notorious radicals as Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, he was able to deceive enough people so that he could ride to the presidency on a white horse in the name of "change."

It is interesting that after graduating from Columbia University, Obama first got a job in a private firm that he hated, and then went to Chicago to become a community organizer, a form of radical activism invented by Saul Alinsky.  The purpose of a community organizer is to turn Americans into mobs that can be used by stealth socialists to intimidate opponents to the socialist agenda.

Kurtz writes: "We’ve seen that the favorite strategies of community organizers are designed to push the country into socialism well before the public can figure out what’s happened.  Stealth-socialist community organizers habitually disguise their long-term goals."

In Wisconsin we have witnessed how the strategy works.  Unionized teachers and government workers are mobilized by community organizers to fill the state house with screaming mobs.  The teachers bring their students with them.  Apparently the students have not been taught anything about constitutional government and believe that mobs are the appropriate way to intimidate a conservative governor.

But why may Obama be America’s Lenin?  I believe that his commitment to socialism is so deep and strong that he wants to go down in history as the greatest single socialist in the pantheon of great socialists, along with Marx, Engels, and Lenin.  Lenin was able to impose communism on an economically weak, politically backward nation, while Obama’s challenge has been to take the greatest capitalist nation on earth and transform it into a socialist society.  What an achievement that would be in socialist eyes!

In other words, I believe that Obama considers himself to be clever enough to do the impossible: destroy American capitalism and lead this nation into a socialist world government.

How Obama Would Solve the NFL Labor Crisis
Wayne Allyn Root says that some are now suggesting that Obama get involved in the NFL strike talks.  I was his college classmate at Columbia University and have studied his political career for years.  My record of predicting where Obama will come down on the side of an issue and what lie he will tell to rationalize his decision is near perfect.  Just call me "The Obama Whisperer."

Here’s a quick lesson in how he thinks:

First, Obama is a Socialist who believes in the redistribution of wealth.  He hates those who have worked hard and earned money -- unless they give him massive campaign contributions.

Second, he’s a union hack, who will do anything for unions, even break the law and violate the Constitution -- at least for those unions that give him massive campaign contributions.  Don’t believe me?  Ask the shareholders and banks that loaned billions to GM and Chrysler, only to see their ownership and legal contracts erased by Obama in order to hand ownership to the unions that destroyed the automakers in the first place.

Third, like a true Socialist, Obama believes government has the solution to every problem, and that solution is more government and higher taxes, combined with a prescription of social justice and affirmative action.

Based on his lifetime body of work, here is how I predict Obama will settle the NFL labor crisis:

This is pretty good.  Read it here . . .
Obama's "Shared Prosperity"
Jim Hoft asks, "can we call him a Socialist yet?"

This "fact sheet," was posted on the White House website yesterday -- "The President's Framework for Shared Prosperity and Shared Fiscal Responsibility."
    

click image for "fact sheet"
    
Hoft adds, This is "unreal.  The White House website is now inundated with Obama's Socialist filth.  What a sad day this is for this great nation."

And check out this video.  This guy doesn't even pretend that he's not a socialist anymore.  He's just out in the open with it.
    

"'There but for the grace of God go I,' we say to ourselves, and so we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities," Obama said.  "We are a better country because of these commitments.  I'll go further -- we would not be a great country without those commitments."

    
And, NO!, Obama.  Everybody doesn't pay.  In 2009, 47% of Americans paid no federal income tax, and many of them received tax "rebates" on the taxes they didn't pay.  When that number gets to be 51%, the takers will outnumber the earners, and America will be a distant memory.
Barack Obama's Arrogant Marxist Rhetoric
Ben Shapiro says that so far, the analysis of Obama's deficit speech has focused largely on its vagaries, obfuscations, and outright lies.  Charles Krauthammer rightly blasted Obama's speech as "shallow … hyper-partisan … intellectually dishonest."  He cited Obama's "numbers suspended in mid-air with nothing under them with all kinds of goals and guidelines and triggers that mean nothing."  Krauthammer wasn't alone -- many commentators ranging from David Limbaugh to Larry Kudlow have targeted Obama's woefully un-mathematical statistics, his fiscal magical thinking, and his utter inability to move to the center with regard to deficit reduction.

But the true heart of Obama's speech wasn't the faulty budgetary analysis or the demagoguery of attacking Paul Ryan personally.  It was Obama's soaring rhetoric.

Obama is an odd politician.  Most politicians see the cloudy phraseology of their speeches as mere throwaway stuff, cotton candy for the simple-minded.  Obama sees such gibberish as the soul of his agenda.  If we want to examine where Obama truly stands, we must delve into his soaring rhetoric.

And the soaring rhetoric is unvaryingly drawn directly from Saul Alinsky.

As Andrew Breitbart makes clear in his fantastic new book, Righteous Indignation, the father of the contemporary left is Saul Alinsky.  Alinsky was an intensely clever fellow with no compunction about exploiting popular sentiment to achieve his ends.  One of his favorite methodologies was to use America's founders to back his own Marxism.  As Breitbart writes, "Alinsky's clever merging of fake founding philosophy with his own Marxism led him to internal contradictions that would have sunk a lesser ego.  While championing 'freedom,' for example -- he hated the idea of individual freedom the Founders loved -- he [pushed for] 'communal freedom,' which is to say tyranny led by the government."

Obama was raised in the Alinsky tradition, and he speaks with Alinsky's forked tongue.  Thus, for example, Obama opened his speech by stating that Americans have historically "put our faith in free markets and free enterprise as the engine of America's wealth and prosperity … we are rugged individualists, a self-reliant people with a healthy skepticism of too much government."

So far, so good. But Obama continues: "But there has always been another thread running throughout our history -- a belief that we are all connected; and that there are some things we can only do together, as a nation."  This is un-American, and it is a lie.  American unity doesn't occur in opposition to free markets, but in defense of them.

This is typical Alinsky.  By purposefully confusing principled individualism with principled communitarianism, suggesting that Americans are characterized by both, Obama begins the slow march to fascism.  In this section of his speech, Obama essentially turned Americans into corporatists -- free marketeers ready, willing, and able to turn over that free market to a well-organized state.

Alfred E. Obama:  What, Me Worry?
Michael Whipple says Blaming Americans for being "skittish" and "nervous" with a subtle implication that its still all Bush's fault, Obama tries to tell Americans that their task is to "not panic, not overreact."  Meanwhile his promised anti-energy policies, job killing ObamaCare, ever increasing debt, failed stimulus, payoffs to union supporters and Utopian "green" revolution are collapsing the US economy.  But as Alfred E. Newman said "What, me worry?"

Obama added more debt in his first 19 months than all the presidents from Washington to Reagan combined with the debt expected to double by 2021.  The official White House Office of Management and Budget web site carries a call from Obama to "invest in our people without leaving them a mountain of debt," and yet Obama is giving future generations an insurmountable mountain of debt.  It makes sense when you understand Obama's goal of redistribution of the wealth.  Alan Greenspan said "Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth." [Gold and Economic Freedom; The Objectivist, 1966]  To redistribute it you must first confiscate it.

Just look at the ideologues Obama chooses as his advisers.  His cabinets are pushing "environmental justice" as a scheme for redistributing wealth.  His energy secretary Steven Chu is on the record as having said we need higher gas prices like those in Europe.  Obama warned us during his 2008 campaign that "under my plan electricity rates will necessarily have to skyrocket."  Obama hired an anti-commerce commerce secretary in John Bryson. Senator Inhofe has called Obama's EPA a "growing menace to the economy."  John P. Holdren, who then-President-elect Barack Obama nominated as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in December 2008, called just five months before his nomination for a global climate-change agreement that would allow wealth to be redistributed from countries in the global "North" to countries in the "South."  Obama also picked a "spread the wealth" progressive lawyer for his top economist.

A new congressional report has determined that the Obama administration is intentionally causing high gas prices.  Obama seems to be doing everything he can to increase gas prices, inhibit domestic oil drilling and ruin the coal industry.  His green energy policies cause consumers to pay as much as 38% more for electricity.

And don't forget that according to Obama the union agenda is his agenda.  According to AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka the Obama White House collaborates with its socialist union boss on a daily basis.  Obama's payoff to the UAW for union campaign help cost Americans over $14 billion and broke bankruptcy and credit laws possibly destroying the ability of the auto industry to borrow in the open market.  Obama's heavily union biased labor board is suing Boeing for building a plant and creating new jobs in South Carolina.

Its no wonder that the head of 3M called Obama anti-business expressing concerns about killing jobs and that the National Black Chamber of Commerce founder said Obama "is anti-business...it's starting to look Marxist to me."  As more people realize Obama really is a socialist they have a right to be skittish and nervous about his economy destroying polices.  After all, he's got the job for another two years.
Obama And The End Of Western Civilization
Steve McCann says the global and domestic landscape is one of turmoil, indecision, and uncertainty.  Everywhere one looks there is chaos and potential disaster, whether in the financial, economic, or political sphere.  Since the beginning of the post-World War II era there has been one constant that has been the stabilizing force in the world: the stature, power, and influence of the United States.  In a matter of a few short years Obama has deliberately and overwhelmingly eroded America's pre-eminence, which has resulted in global instability and domestic unease.

Barack Obama occupies the office of the presidency as a man brought up and steeped in 1960's radicalism, which advanced the doctrine that America, as the lone Western superpower, represented the evil nature of colonialism and capitalism's exploitation of the masses -- whether there was any truth in this assertion or that the United States was guilty of these sins was irrelevant.  The material and military success of America and the West could only have come about from expropriating the wealth and labor of the peoples of the world.

This is a simplistic and emotional argument and one that refuses to take into account the basic nature of the human race and its failings and foibles.  Mankind always has and always will have as its preeminent trait the need to survive, and to that end human beings are susceptible to committing crimes and exploiting their fellow man.  Thus any society will always have many failings, but the key measure of any civilization is what it does to control those tendencies and strive for an equitable culture.  No nation or culture in history has done more to advance the well-being of mankind than the United States and Western civilization.

However to the Marxist mindset of the radical left, only they, utilizing the vehicle of a massive central government, could control mankind's nature and create a fair society.  It is the ideal philosophy for those who, so enamored with themselves, can wallow in their self-importance and rule with a heavy hand the same masses they claim to protect.  Under no circumstances, therefore, can these revolutionaries defend or profess admiration for their country; instead they must not only transform the United States into a villain, but destroy any vestiges of its accomplishments in order to permanently retain control over the populace and exact revenge for the alleged transgressions of the West.

Barack Obama has spent his entire life, from birth to the present, marinated in this mindset.  He is thus incapable of change or being receptive to any other viewpoint, as that would be an admission of failure.  His chief concern is himself, the retention and expansion of government power as well as the plight of the third world, rather than the suffering of the average American citizen facing economic and societal ruin.

He and his fellow-travelers can thus justify bankrupting the country as a necessary part of the remaking and absolution of the United States.  He can show disdain and at times outright hostility toward age-old European allies who were, in his mind, the original sinners in the exploitation of the downtrodden.  He has no compunction in forcing Israel, as an outpost of Western civilization, to compromise and bend to all the demands of the Palestinians.  To Barack Obama there is no overriding American interest in virtually all foreign matters except to take a back seat and surrender its influence to other mainly non-Western powers.

He continues to pursue many of George Bush's policies against terrorism and the war in Afghanistan, while taking steps designed to assure America does not win the conflict in the long-term.  His short-term goal is to be certain a terrorist attack within the United States does not occur in the next two years as that would doom his re-election chances and put in jeopardy his agenda.  Meanwhile he willingly discards old allies in the Middle East while turning a blind eye and tacitly promoting the radicalization of many countries in the region.

He relies on his ego-driven messianic demeanor and skin color to intimidate both domestic political adversaries and international allies, while believing the same traits will cause those in the non-Western world to view him as their savior.

Obama's Socialism: The Jet Tour
Sharon Sebastian says that Las Vegas mogul, Steve Wynn, reportedly said the following about Barack Obama:
 

"This is Obama’s deal and it’s Obama that’s responsible for this fear in America.  The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution.  And, maybe we [the administration] ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, they’re holding too much money.  We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists.  Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft-peddling it, it's the truth.  It is the truth!  And that's true of Democratic businessmen and Republican businessmen, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid.  I support Democrats and Republicans.  And, I'm telling you that the business community in this country is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States.  And until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs."

 
Is Wynn right?  Is Obama a socialist threatening to "do something to businesses" if they don’t toe the Obama line?  Does Obama reveal himself to be an ideologue with a Socialist/Marxist agenda?  How does a country know that socialism is being forced on its people by its government?  Do Obama’s policies reveal a deeply rooted problem with socialism at its core?

Allow a resubmission of a partial checklist, a jet tour of Obama and his Progressive governance.  Core to socialism is "redistribution of wealth," which is Obama’s constant mantra (check).  Government leaders assume an elitist mentality and ignore the will of the majority of the people (check).  The government takes control of the majority of the nation’s economy by nationalizing industries such as auto, insurance, banks and health care and attacks free enterprise (check).  Obama puts an anti-free-market Czar over the nation’s vital manufacturing sector who is quoted as saying -- "we know the free market is nonsense" (check).  Obama blurs the checks and balances between the executive and legislative branches of government (check).  Obama derides or circumvents the Constitution that protects the people from tyranny at the hands of the government (check).  Obama advocates personally invasive laws that will force compliance by citizens with the threat of fines and legal penalties (ObamaCare/EPA -- check).  The government force-feeds laws before they are read, that allow the government to fill in the blanks without oversight after the laws go into effect -- such as the reported hundreds of incomplete mandates in ObamaCare and the FDA (check).  Obama and his czars threaten freedom of speech with an agenda to control the citizen’s use of the Internet via an empowered FCC, to shut-down opposition Radio-TV-Cable stations with massive taxation, to continue to target groups "as the enemy" that peacefully speak out against government and then direct radicals to "go get in the face" of those who dissent peacefully (check, check, check, and check).

Is Barack Obama Truly A Socialist?

Paul Roderick Gregory says the Pew Research finds that sixty percent of Americans respond negatively to "socialism." It is clear why Barack Obama must avoid that label. Words are important. Political candidates who control the language of political discourse win elections.
  

Most of our elites would certainly not entertain the question: "Is Obama a Socialist?" Only irresponsible fanatics carelessly throw around such epithets, they say. Polite circles ignore such goofiness.
  

As someone who has professionally studied and written about comparative economics, capitalism, and socialism for almost fifty years, the reticence to probe the core beliefs of a political leader seems odd. The question is perfectly legitimate in both an academic and political context as long as we define terms and place the discussion in proper context.
  

By "socialist," I do not mean a Lenin, Castro, or Mao, but whether Obama falls within the mainstream of contemporary socialism as represented, for example, by Germany’s Social Democrats, French Socialists, or Spain’s socialist-workers party?
  

By this criterion, yes, Obama is a socialist.

In His Own Words


  

Obama a socialist?

    

Yes. It is true! Barack Obama, his close friend Al Sharpton, Ronald Reagan, and the founding fathers all agree that Obama is a socialist! a socialist utopia was the dream of Barack Obamas father, and though he could not realize this dream himself, he is subverting congress and destroying the balance of power that our Constitution has so beautifully created, and enforcing socialism on the United States of America.

From the numerous unelected czars, to the many executive orders that he has passed, Obama is doing all that he can to push his socialist takeover and destroy our very own Constitution right before our eyes. Yes, Obama's socialism is destroying our free markets as he picks winners and losers, launders money to his ardent supporters through trillion dollar stimulus packages. He has taken over much of the private sector with his socialist health care takeover know affectionately as "ObamaCare" and he is stifling growth and jobs as he joined hands with the Communist Green Movement (avowed communist Van Jones worked in the Obama White House).

True to his roots, Obama has surrounded himself with radical Marxist individuals who think that the Constitution is an outdated document, and that Karl Marx was right and wealth redistribution works. As we have seen from history, socialist and communist regimes have brought death and destruction to their own people numbering in the hundreds of millions!

As Karl Marx himself said, "Democracy is the road to socialism" and as we have seen socialism and communism are extremely similar and have the same father- Karl Marx. We will let him tell you in his own words how Obama is a Socialist!
