Have you ever held a debate with a Liberal who denies that Liberalism and Socialism is the same thing? That what Obama is doing is not Socialism? I have, and I can tell you it is frustrating. However, here is your guide to what Socialism is and how Obama is ramming the American Ship right into that Iceberg. It may come in handy when you get involved with the less informed!
When it comes to President Obama and this administration where does one begin to list all the lies? Attacks on the Constitution, attacks on Christianity, attacks by this administration on our own military, the breakdown of our country’s sovereignty, the breakdown of international trust, spying on Americans and world leaders, the waste of money spent on green energy projects, Obamacare, misused Stimulus funds, national debt, not upholding laws, scandals such as Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS targeting, EPA targeting, entitlement programs out of control, capitulating to Islam in and out of our country, all the class warfare, racial division, The DOJ’s double standards, Homeland Security releasing criminal illegal aliens, sealing Obama’s past [school records, etc.], redistribution of wealth, Yes, I could go on pages and pages just listing the topics.
To cover all of these in one article is a task beyond me, and I love to ramble! However, as a whole, all of these issues named (and those not), is the topic I wish to talk to you about. This is more than ideology of the left. John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, all were Democrats, even liberal to some or more extent, but what is happening now is not their ideology. What is happening now can only be described as extreme radicalism to the definition of Socialism.
When an administration treats the citizen as the villain of society, that administration is attacking AMERICA. How so? Obama has attacked half this country by attacking their beliefs and rights. The right to bear arms he attacked in many speeches, but the one that comes to mind is the “Clinging to their guns and bibles” the most. He has attacked Americans by attacking Christianity on many occasions. Be it attacking the Sermon on the Mount calling it radical, attacking Christian organizations through Obamacare, and let us not forget recently this administration closed the embassy to the Vatican. How about attacking Americans with words like “You don’t need that gas guzzling SUV”, or “There comes a point when you make too much money”. This administration is and will continue attacking the American way, Free Markets, in short our freedoms. He must attack the opposite of Socialism.
Yet, the left loves this man (although some are waking up). So while he attacks half of the Americans, the other half loves him, praises him, even eerily worshiping him. This leads me to believe half of Americans don’t get America at all.
So for those who want Liberalism to rule the world, allow me to educate you on what Socialism is. Yes, they both are synonymous.
In Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules For Radicals”, which Obama has read (his own admission) and Michelle Obama has quoted from, I point you to this excerpt: “The organizer dedicated to changing the life of a particular community must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act.” — P.116-117
By keeping in mind that Obama was a Community Organizer, one can see how he has taken this passage and applied it to dividing this country via class warfare and attacking wealth. The Socialist must do this to make Socialism succeed. Spread the wealth to them, entitlements, demonizing corporations and the private sector. For if the organizer acts alone he fails, yet if he builds resentment by the masses to those he targets he has a social political army.
As in the above pictured illustration, the definition of Socialism by Webster’s dictionary, take number one for the moment: “any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods”.
The Liberal would say “What government ownership? Obama has done none of that!” The Government takeover of the auto industry is an example. This was a ruse as the government claimed “It is too big to fail”. Chapter 7,11 and 13 of the bankruptcy laws would re-organized the auto industry without the industry failing. Yet the government stepped in and issued investors pennies on the dollar, closed dealerships that were in families for generations (and by the way, reports are that it was dealerships owned by conservatives), and the talk about how GM paid back the tax payer is hogwash. It has lost about 25 billion dollars of tax payer money. However, Obama got to replace CEOs with people that are sympathetic to his agenda, pushed electric cars that failed to sell, even exploded, and ruined many of the union’s pensions.
The government takeover of student loans now finds our government in the banking industry. Historically anything the government runs does poorly. This was no exception. Student loans are costing more because tuitions are increasing because of this takeover. That, and subsidies to illegal alien tuitions, and students are finding they will have debt that is so huge, it may cripple their finances. The Dodd-Frank bill also puts the government in charge of the banking industry. This is all done by stealth mode. You won’t hear them say “We have taken over the banking industry”. No, instead they mask the takeovers with doing this for the people, the consumer, protecting them.
The government takeover of healthcare known as OBAMACARE, but officially is named the Affordable Health Care Act takes over the most of all. This was never about health care, as now seen by the horrible plans and costs. It was a way to take over more than a third of the GDP. The fact that is also redistributes from those who have to those who are the have-nots is just a double benefit for Obama’s agenda. I point out to you Thomas Jefferson’s quote “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
You may all know the famous term “Taxation without Representation”. This term from 1750-1760 was one of the basis for the Revolution. Yet, when the Senate passed the Affordable Health Care Act 73% of Americans were against it. If you need to recall the history: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2010/mar/09/fp2-against-obamacare-73-percent/. This is exactly what “Taxation without Representation” is.
The goal to chip away and take over industries such as the Auto, Banking, Healthcare industries is what Socialism is. Do it all at once? The people, even Liberals, would object. But little by little it is happening. Maxine Waters, the radical Congresswoman and self-admitted Liberal (Not all Democrats are Liberal) was caught stumbling about taking over the oil industry. This is a Liberal agenda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW_FXjbt6wY.
The second definition from Webster’s is “a system of society or group living in which there is no private property”. The Liberal will say “What property has this administration taken from us?”. Through government regulations, and the EPA, Banking takeovers, the government will end up owning your home and you pay them the mortgage. This is already reality through Fanny Mae, and Freddie Mac loans, but the rate of banks closing is astounding. The government is set to take over many failing banks. Also, along the lines of redistribution of wealth, this administration is set to diversify communities to where entire towns must conform to racial equality of homes. To do this, either a double standard of pricing will ensue, or some may be forced to sell and move.
Private Property is also your financial income. It is part of your private property. As I write this there are Congressman drafting bills to take over personal IRA’s and Pensions and replace them with an annuity check much like Social Security. This is confiscating your private property, thus Socialism. If the elections in 2014 go well for Democrats where they regain the House, you will see this and a slew of bills rammed through against the American people. It is only the Republicans, and Conservatives who are considered the “Party Of No” that has prevented being rolled over by this agenda. Democrats are the slide toward Socialism. Republicans still have a Free Society mentality. Although, it is the Conservative who will defend what our country was founded on entirely.
The government is now in the business of telling you what toilet bowl to buy, what light bulb to buy, and in short, there is no room in your home that does not have a government regulation. Soon in play will be the government setting the temperature in your own home. It is being tested in several cities now. Your automobile will be tracked by black boxes, issuing you tickets without the need of a policeman, knowing where you are at all times. Your freedom is a form of private property. Your computer, phone, even TV will all be watched by the government, in fact it already is. With one more law to mention: Eminent Domain. This gives the government power to seize your home for what they deem a better use. This law is here, and has been acted up on already. However, I fear this law is about to become expansive.
The third definition by Webster’s is: “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done “.
I have alluded to this above in other instances. This is redistribution of wealth, a ceiling to how much you can earn. It is being done in so many ways by this administration now. Obamacare is set to pay doctors a set amount for services, those that have not will be subsidized by those that have. Obama raising the minimum wage to ten dollars and hour, and if Elizabeth Warren has anything to say about it, it will be $22.00 an hour. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid both agree that the more people on food stamps the better it is for our economy. This is not in the individual’s best interest, but to keep the individual from thriving. The amount of people on some form of entitlements has grown to nearly 48%. You are paying for this through your tax dollars. Redistributing from those who have, to those who are the have-nots. I strongly believe in entitlement programs to help the have-nots, but not as a career. To help them get back on their feet, to thrive, but this administration and their ilk will try to increase this number even more. As Margaret Thatcher once said “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
The CBO just released a report that says the rich pay over 100% of the taxes http://dailycaller.com/2013/12/11/cbo-the-rich-pay-over-100-percent-of-taxes/. Yet Obama would have you believe that Warren Buffet pays fewer tax dollars than his secretary. This Saul Alinsky tactic is to create that class warfare as it is unfair. Yet the rich do pay more. Warren Buffet by the way pays Capital Gains tax which is a lower rate than Income Tax which his secretary pays. However the amount that Warren Buffet pays in taxes far exceeds that of his secretary. About a year ago today the Republicans caved in allowing the rich to be taxed more. Have you noticed prices of what you buy have gone up? There are many reasons for inflation; this was just another one of them. They are not going to keep less. Tax them more; they will raise the price of whatever it is their selling.
To sum up, the definition of Socialism is being acted upon by this administration. Call it a Liberal agenda, but I offer this quote by Norman Thomas, a presidential candidate in America under the Communist Party who said: “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”
So, if you are a Liberal American, just know what it is you voted for. As Al Sharpton said when Obama won his first term election “Let us not forget that the American people overwhelmingly voted for Socialism”. My liberal friends please read Mark Levin’s book Liberty and Tyranny: http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Tyranny-Conservative-Mark-Levin/dp/1416562877/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1386929175&sr=1-1&keywords=liberty+tryanny
