As with many "skillful polititicians'', Barack Obama mostly conceals his true intentions and beliefs. But on occasion he makes them perfectly clear. As I pointed out in a number of recent postings, Obama is a "dyed-in-the-wool'' Marxist/Socialist with an agenda to change America into what the the Founding Fathers never envisioned and definitely would break their hearts if they were alive today. In 2008, Obama's entire presidential, campaign had been based on themes of national unity, of transcending partisan differences, on a ''red, white and blue America.'' Once elected, the unifying Obama seemed to vanish. Overnight, his rhetoric radically changed.
''We're gonna punish our enemies and were gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.'' Obama told Latino voters in November, 2010 a month before the Tea Party movement decimated the Democratic Congress. That one sentence ''pretty much sums up Obama's entire presidency," Conn Carroll wrote in the Washington Examiner. A fellow jounalist, Michael Barone, coined the term ''gangster government.'' Burton Folsom Jr., professor of history at Hillsdale College wrote a month earlier, referring to Obama's similar attitude to Teddy Roosevelt's speech on progressiveness in 1910, entitled, ''New Nationalism''; which urged greater government control over the economy and punishing any opposition to it.
One of the most deceptive tricks in Obama's rhetorical arsenal is his use of the term economic fairness. A prime example of the progressives' use , in general, of harmless-sounding rhetoric in their advancement of radical objectives, the ''fairness'' derives directly from the Marxist conception of economic justice. It is used today with great effect on the ignorant citizenry by the many shades of progressives -- communists, socialists, Democratic socialists -- all over the globe.
A year later in December, 2011 it was obvious to anyone who had a brain in their head that the leader of the Free World was up to something. Obama, in a speech in Kansas, soundly denounced capitalism, saying it ''it doesn't work, it has never worked.'' These words of his echoed those of Michigan's Marxist congressman, John Conyers Jr, who a month earlier told a gathering of the Democratic Socialists of America, ''This system, this capitalist system, is broken and may be un-repairable.'' Obama repeatedly invoked fairness. Fairness, as Obama defined it, is ''when everyone engages in fair play and everybody gets a fair shot and everybody does their fair share." (The fairness expressed by Karl Marx was, ''from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.'' )
Raising taxes on the wealthy would only be fair, Obama said, since somebody has to pay for ALL of his ''investments" in infrastructure, education, and ''green'' projects, not to mention the expansion of unemployment benefits, of government bureaucracy and the creation of new jobs programs he is pushing. In truth, Obama's progressive conception of fairness is not the Classic Marxist one, for Marx was the prophet of a revolutionary working class. But today's neo-socialist progressives have completely abandoned and betrayed the working class, along with small-business owners, in favour of a welfare class, a lower and middle class ever more dependent on government hand-outs and a progressive, liberal elite. (Selling their Soul to the Devil)
The Way I See It....Barack Obama has abandoned the ''average, middle-class voter and his middle-class values'' and cobbled together an unholy alliance of state dependents, government hangers-on and political elites who claim the knowledge and capacity to run things. (Yeah...right!) This my dear American friends is the rise of a ''new governing class'' that insists on enforcing political and economic ''fairness'' rather than letting you decent folks govern yourselves. Welcome to Communism 102! The managed quest for fairness inevitably leads to bureaucratic favoritism, inequalities based on special interests and undue political influence to your daily lives.
If there was any doubt before, it is now clear that this cold, calculating anti-American has given up on the center of American politics and doubled down on his socialist governing model. And this tells us everything about where he is coming from and where he wants to go. If you bend to his will you'll be rewarded, but God help you when he comes to punish you if you doubt his vision.
If he not stopped in 7 weeks time, this corrupt and economically unsustainable fairness train will be used to steamroll American citizens for another four (4) years and what will be left of your democracy, at the end of the line, will be unrecognizable! Heed my warning you Obama Zombies.
