Liberals are confused. The Right-Wing keeps calling Obama a Marxist. To the naïve liberal, this is just a smear. But I’m sorry to inform you if you are a liberal: Marxism has a history. And just like the only thing you know about the war in Iraq, it has a death count. That would be over 100 million. And they are the lucky ones. The living have to live lives of desperation and poverty. The only ones who do well are the political leaders. Like Franklin Raines at Fannie Mae, they reap devastation on the people (in the name of social justice) and enrich themselves to the highest level so they never suffer from their own communist corruption.
As much as he has hid and distorted his views, Obama too has a past. It’s plain to see he is a Leftist. All his friends, associates and mentors were as red as they come. So isn’t it time to look at the facts and disregard the lies and pandering from this Chicago Machine politician?
I’m not advocating reading Marx and Engels. That is already being taught in school and in the mainstream media enough. But just look at Europe. There Socialism was the domestic policy for years until those who worked and paid taxes got tired and were not able to support the majority who didn’t work. Dole lines were cut and people were forced to work for a living. Immigration has been cut and many countries are deporting immigrants. True, the social system is still massive, but year by year it is shrinking. They are becoming more like the US, and this has been going on for 20 years. So socialism lite doesn’t work, and communism is brutal and untenable. Why is this a “change”? It’s been tried and has failed every time.
Now we see Obama taking credit for other people’s sound ideas and discarding his Marxist views. But close attention to his words reveals his red orientation. It’s been drummed into him since he was a kid and as slick as he is, he can’t completely hide it. His preference for “equality” over liberty, betrays his foreign ideology. Americans can’t give up their liberty for a failed collectivist belief that has never worked and never will.
