Obama IS a socialist, and that’s nothing new

Joe Biden was caught with his leftist pants down in an interview in Florida. Journalist Barbara West simply pursued Obama’s own repeated comments on distribution of wealth, but has been pilloried by liberals, especially Biden. You can see and read about it here. Biden denied that Obama wanted to redistribute wealth, apparently missing Obama’s recent answer to Joe the Plumber. You can hear Obama talk with Joe about “spreading the wealth around” (direct quote) in this video. What is there to deny? Obama is clearly pushing for socialism–take money from those who earned it and give it to those who didn’t. Biden himself said that it was patriotic for those who earned it to pay more taxes, and “take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.” Take money? Isn’t that stealing?

Nor is this anything new. Like the X-Files, the truth is out there. 2001 Obama interviews with public radio station WBEZ FM in Chicago have surfaced (about 4.5 shocking minutes):

Read the transcript here. In that interview, Obama laments that the Constitution “doesn’t say what the federal government or state government MUST DO on your behalf.” (Wasn’t President Kennedy a democrat who said: “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”)

Obama’s is the lament of socialism. But that isn’t an isolated statement. He goes on to say: “One of the I think tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.” What better way to bring about socialism in America than to be the president and appoint socialist judges who will invent redistribution by trampling the Constitution and our basic rights as Americans, eh?

In the following recording, Obama calls the lack of socialism a “fundamental flaw” of the US Constitution and in our country today:

Obama’s own words: “The Constitution reflected an enormous blind spot in this culture that continues to this day and that the framers had this same blind spot.” He goes on to say that the Constitution “reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.”

Fatal flaw? The United States is the greatest nation on this planet. People are flocking into our country. Our freedom and capitalism have drawn immigrants from all over the world in search of the liberty and opportunity that we have here. My grandparents were amongst them. I’m a product of it. They didn’t see the ability to be rewarded for their hard work and strong work ethic as a fatal flaw, but as our great strength. Until recently, we’ve maintained liberty for our citizens at home and liberated dozens of countries from tyranny abroad. Fatally flawed? Only according to spoiled socialist elitists and radicals.

Let’s go back to what can be called the mission statement of socialism as written by Karl Marx himself: “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” That mantra has failed every time it has been tried in government, EVERY TIME!!! And every government that tried really hard has been despotic. A nanny government must be despotic because it must steal from those who earn it to give it to those who didn’t earn it. Socialists with their redistribution of wealth are, at their core, thieves and thugs. Socialism would destroy this country.

In this context, Obama’s associations with Frank Marshall Davis of the Communist Party USA, unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers of the leftist Weatherman Underground, Carl Davidson of their communist parent organization Students for a Democratic Society, the socialist New Party, and the leftist, vote-defrauding ACORN (going back to 2007 in this election) with whom Obama worked as a community organizer and to whom he provided $832,598, all make perfect sense. They all share the same agenda–end-run our Constitution and bring socialism to the United States. The only mystery here is why the media continues to cover all this up. It’s obvious why Obama and Biden lie about it. Real Americans would never stand for it if they knew.

Also, remember that Obama broke his huge promise to go with public campaign financing as soon as he saw that he could do better financially by breaking it. Senator McCain has kept his promise and his integrity has hurt him in regards to his campaign’s financials. Like all socialists, Obama uses promises like real people use facial tissue–throw them away when you’re done with them. That’s been true since Lenin and has never changed. For socialists, the truth changes as needed but the goal never changes.

In contrast, Governor Sarah Palin today pointed out the real American dream. We should not be working for government, the government should be working for us. We the people. Government by the people, for the people, and of the people; not subjects grateful for handouts from a socialist nanny state. I spent 30 years defending our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That Obama even has a chance at throwing it all way breaks my heart. So, I implore you–Vote for freedom, reject the tyranny of socialism.
