Most folks would immediately dismiss this as just some sort of name calling stunt. In fact, I was just outside at our company’s roach coach service, the owner had his radio on, and there was a horrified woman doing an interview who exclaimed, “They are calling Barack Obama a socialist!”
Well, ma’am, Barack Obama is a socialist.
Let us ignore for a small moment Barack Obama’s own socialist words and just focus on the policies that he and his Democrat buddies are currently espousing:
Government run health care for everyone!
I know the Obama camp is desperately attempting to tell people the plan is not really government run. If the government is involved and paying for it, then it is government run. It does not matter how many different ways you attempt to spin this, the government will write the legislation, the government will make the decision of what is covered and what is not, the government will decide who pays for it and who gets it for free, the government will even decide what procedures are allowed and which are not.
Ladies and Gentlemen: this is government run health care!
Can you imagine for a moment a program that takes the power over your life and your personal health care out of your hands and places it into the hands of the government?
Your very life depends on the government and what they deem to be necessary and proper for your own health care needs.
There is no better way to take away your freedom than to take away your power over your own life.
Ladies and Gentlemen: Barack Obama’s health care plan is a perfect example of socialism. Your very life depends on him.
Another example of socialism:
The so-called “Fairness Doctrine” that the Democrats want so desperately to get passed is another form of socialism. The Barack Obama government with the support of the Democrat controlled House and Senate want to be able to dictate what can be said on the radio and what cannot be said.
Freedom of speech just took a big hit. The government will decide if what is being said on the radio is fair or not fair.
As we already know, Barack Obama’s campaign was furious with a couple of different TV because the difficult questions were given to them and they have since cut those TV stations off of access to the candidate’s campaign.
Let me ask you, how much would you have hooted and howled about this taking place in a country like Cuba? The great leader doesn’t like the questions he gets, so he cuts them off. The Fairness Doctrine being pushed by the Democrats will give them the power to shut down the type of speech they do not like.
Yet another example of socialism:
Barack Obama has promised tax increases to only the very rich. One of the ways socialism works is by pitting person on person. So and so has more than I do and I want it. Pitting neighbor on neighbor. But don’t worry, Obama will take from them and give it to you. What happens then when someone complains about you? Will he take from you and give it to someone else? After all, he has to take your wealth now and redistribute it to someone else. It is only fair!
This is socialism, continually taking from one person and giving to another and the government would decide who gets what and when they will get it.
Now you take these few simple examples of socialism and put them together with Barack Obama’s words:
"It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too," Obama responded. "My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
An audio from 2001 (via hot air)where Barack Obama calls it a tragedy that the civil rights movement and the Supreme Court did not address “redistribution of wealth”.
Fox News has also discovered quite a few insights from the books that Barack Obama has written:
But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists
as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life,
even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a
self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34. Obama's
affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los
"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends
carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams
From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign
students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."
After seeing the policies that Obama has not only pushing right now, the writings from his own books and hearing the words that he himself has spoken…
Ask yourself, is Barack Obama a socialist?
Well, of course he is. Obama is attempting to hide this, but the house of cards is beginning to collapse. Perhaps all of the radical friends of his were a bigger influence than the mainstream media is telling us about.
