There is simply no escaping Obama’s ties to socialists and his socialist tendencies, in the past, and even today, as he continues to support socialist programs. As much as his camp would like to divert the American voter’s attention away from Obama’s socialism, it isn’t working. It’s like the proverbial elephant in the room. It cannot be ignored. Nor should it be.
When you look at Obama’s past, his voting record, his associates, (those who have served Obama as advisors… and… some say mentors.) you quickly come to see that Obama’s brand of politics is much farther to the left than most of the arch liberal Democrats with which he shares his political party, the Democratic Party.
The very first warning sign of Obama’s socialism is his absolute belief in “Redistribution of the Wealth”. That is PURE socialism. He speaks of “Economic Justice”. That, too, is PURE socialism. In layman’s language “Economic Justice” is action by the government punishing those who have worked hard and earned their money, and rewarding those who haven’t. How would he do that? By taking the hard earned money of the, shall we say, “more fortunate”, and giving it to the, again, shall we say, “less fortunate”. He would do this by forcing Americans to give their wealth away. How? Mostly by taxes. “Economic Justice” is simply another phrase substituting for the word “socialism”. You see, we are convinced that Obama plans to, uh… “soak the rich”.
If Obama wins, and has his way, and he certainly will with a Democrat Congress, there will be massive tax increases and massive government spending on a scale this country has NEVER seen before. How long do you think it will be before America is bankrupt? How long do you think it will be before productive Americans, tired of working hard and having their hard earned wealth taken from them by the government, decide to simply stop working so hard and stop producing so much? Why SHOULD they continue to produce if the government is going to rob them of their earnings? Our national economy will circle the drain, only briefly, before diving down the tubes.
What sort of programs would Obama spend your wealth on? Well, take a look at the list at Investor’s Business Daily’s website. Some of them are:
"Universal," "guaranteed" health care, "Free" college tuition,” “Universal national service" (a la Havana), "Universal 401(k)s" (in which the government would match contributions made by "low- and moderate-income families"), "Free" job training (even for criminals), "Free" child care and "universal" preschool, and more “subsidized public housing”. For a more complete list visit:
As the folks at Investor’s Business Daily say… this is just for “starters”. This is stuff he would propose and, more than likely, have passed into law by the Congress in HIS FIRST TERM!
It is scary to see that Obama’s voting record, throughout his political career, is farther to the left than that of the only openly socialist US Senator currently serving in the US Senate! Now, THAT IS frightening!
So, we have a neophyte senator from Illinois, with 143 days experience in the US Senate… and no legislation he can point to as his, with a "gift of gab" and a charismatic personality, having no foreign policy experience at a time when the nation is at war, making “pie in the sky” promises, AND, it appears, beginning to believe his own press releases, and all this raises, for me, the question I want answered most of all… who is behind Obama? Who? We have a little over two months to unravel that mystery. The answer, I suspect, will be extremely telling.
