Check: “This is Rich”

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Check out This is Rich over at Right on the Left Coast.  If the Democratic Party believes that there is nothing wrong with the socialist policies they are promoting, then why argue over referring to them as socialist?

Our forefathers were smart.  They built into our laws the ability to peacefully change the face of our nation.  So, if the Democratic Party really thinks that socialism is the way forward for our nation, then why won’t they just put the cards on the table and let the people decide?

Time to call Barack Obama and the Democratic Party on this before we put in all our chips, then find, post election, that they were bluffing.  Socialism is the antithesis of the United States.

Socialism II – Destruction of the human spirit

Friday, October 10th, 2008

russian bread line Rounding the corner and coming down the homestretch to the 2008 election are two candidates who have vastly different plans for the future of our so far free nation.

On one hand we have the McCain/Palin ticket who lean towards conserving our nations traditionally free way of government and on the other hand we have the Obama/Biden ticket, who with Democratic Party support, are planning big changes in our nation.  If we elect Barrack Obama we are electing to transform our nation to a socialist nation.  Time to ask yourself if that is really the kind of change you are looking for in our nation.

Today I’ve reposted two earlier posts that I feel are very timely to the decision we have facing us in a few weeks.  Baby Steps, one of my earlier post, briefly describes the path from capitalism to communism.  The second Destruction of the Human Spirit is a more recent post that connects Barrack Obama with this line of thinking.

Destruction of the human spirit – June 15, 2008

The Democratic Party’s socialist aims are not really secret; just highly under reported and rarely spoken of. I don’t think Barack Obama’s socialist aims are a secret to anyone either; just highly under reported, rarely spoken of, and not highlighted as such by his campaign.

But in Barack Obama’s back yard, the Chicago arm of the Democratic Socialists of America (CDSA) have known and supported Sen. Obama’s socialist tendencies for over a decade. Googling their sight yields numerous references and as early as 1996 they recognized him as a socialist.

Obama also has put in time at the grass roots, working for five years as a community organizer in Harlem and in Chicago. When Obama participated in a 1996 UofC YDS Townhall Meeting on Economic Insecurity, much of what he had to say was well within the mainstream of European social democracy.

Chicago Democratic Socialists of America

That was in 1996 that the CDSA recognized that much of what Barack Obama promoted was “well within the mainstream of European social democracy.”

A lot about Barack Obama’s upbringing can be found in a Chicago Tribune article from March ’07. I consider the article Barack Obama: Mother not just a girl from Kansas to be essential reading. Senator Obama describes his mother as “the dominant figure in my formative years. . . . The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.” and the Chicago Tribune article describes her in more detail

“She touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she’d read about and could argue,” said Maxine Box, who was Dunham’s best friend in high school. “She was always challenging and arguing and comparing.

paint a vivid portrait of Barack Obama’s mother as a self-assured, iconoclastic young teen seemingly hell-bent to resist Eisenhower-era conformity.

“If you were concerned about something going wrong in the world, Stanley would know about it first,” said Chip Wall, who described her as “a fellow traveler. . . . We were liberals before we knew what liberals were.”

One classmate, Jill Burton-Dascher, said Stanley Ann (Barack Obama’s mother) “was intellectually way more mature than we were and a little bit ahead of her time, in an off-center way.”

Socialism is apparently in his blood. His mother was very much into liberal socialist/communist thought and Barack’s exposure to the socialist mindset continued through his childhood.

However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”

Accuracy in Media

But where is the harm in Senator Obama’s socialist design for our nation? Well, there is the cost; several trillion dollars as reported by the CATO Institute, however the real harmful cost of socialism is the harmful cost to the human spirit. That cost may not be easy to describe in dollars, but it is easily comprehended by looking at the refugees from any socialist nation in history.

Coincidentally, in a 1978 address to Barack Obama’s Harvard alma mater, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, describes the peril of socialism first hand.

However, many people living in the West are dissatisfied with their own society. They despise it or accuse it of not being up to the level of maturity attained by mankind. A number of such critics turn to socialism, which is a false and dangerous current.

I hope that no one present will suspect me of offering my personal criticism of the Western system to present socialism as an alternative. Having experienced applied socialism in a country where the alternative has been realized, I certainly will not speak for it. The well-known Soviet mathematician Shafarevich, a member of the Soviet Academy of Science, has written a brilliant book under the title Socialism; it is a profound analysis showing that socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death.

Solzhenitsyn, Harvard Address, 1978

Plain and simple, Barack Obama’s socialist plan he refers to as change; is a proven plan for national misery.

Socialism I – Baby Steps

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Rounding the corner and coming down the homestretch to the 2008 election are two candidates who have vastly different plans for the future of our so far free nation.

On one hand we have the McCain/Palin ticket who lean towards conserving our nations traditionally free way of government and on the other hand we have the Obama/Biden ticket, who with Democratic Party support, are planning big changes in our nation.  If we elect Barrack Obama we are electing to transform our nation to a socialist nation.  Time to ask yourself if that is really the kind of change you are looking for in our nation.

Baby Steps – November 16, 2006

Most are not aware of our nation’s baby steps toward communism. Aware or not they are happening. Most “peace” rallies protest etc. are fronts for socialist/communist organizations. Using the war as camouflage for their actions is serving them well. News won’t report what is going on. I have provided links to our local press and local government on several occasions, but there is no interest. I wondered why. Wondering why is what I do.

The why seems to be that we are in a Democrat county and the Democrats are the biggest promoters of socialism in our nation. They want us to be a socialist nation, they just don’t want to say that in public. Which party pushes for the most social programs? Which party pushes for “living wages” regardless of job performance? Which party pushes for government defined morality? Which party refuses to defend our nation? Which party hides socialism behind the word progressive? Which party has dozens of members in congress who are also part of a Congressional Progressive Caucus started by the Democratic Socialists of America? Do you want our nation to become a socialist or communist nation? Should we aspire to be like China, Venezuela, former Soviet Union, or France?

I’m not promoting a McCarthy witch hunt, I’m just saying that if you don’t want our nation to be like these nations then tell your friends to quit voting socialist Democrats into congress.

Capitalism

Capitalism is free market, open competition, profit motive and private ownership of the means of production. Capitalism encourages private investment and business, compared to a government-controlled economy. Investors in these private companies (i.e. shareholders) also own the firms and are known as capitalists.

Social democracy

Political ideology that advocates a peaceful, evolutionary transition of society from capitalism to socialism, using established political processes.

Socialism

Political-economic doctrine that, unlike capitalism which is based on competition, seeks a cooperative society in which the means of production and distribution are owned by the government or collectively by the people. Karl Marx saw socialism as a transition state between capitalism and communism.

Communism

A system of social organization in which goods are held in common. Communism in the United States is something of an anomaly. The basic principles of communism are, by design, at odds with the free enterprise foundation of the U.S. government. The freedom of individuals to privately own property, start a business, and own the means of production is a basic tenet of U.S. government, and communism opposes this ideal.

Eddie Haskell charm

Early this year I predicted an Obama/Clinton ticket competing with a McCain/? ticket. I also predicted that as a losing proposition for John McCain because overall he isn’t that far removed from his Democrat rivals, with a noticeable exception being his stance on defense.

My how things have changed, and the outlook for a Republican president, albeit not a die-hard conservative Republican president, is looking better and better each day. I have learned a lot more about Sen. McCain and like most of it. He is more gutsy than I thought, less prone to be swayed on Iraq than I suspected, more of a pro-traditional family candidate and especially in the pro-life guy.

Somewhat on the sideline during our nation’s ObamaNation fascination tour, has been Hillary Clinton. Did Mrs. NoPersonality really think she had a fair shot against Mr. Obama? Or was she, and is she still, just staying in the game either hoping for or planning for a big Obama campaign crash? She claims to be done campaigning, but I don’t count her out of the running yet. Heck she may have just decided it would be smart to let the well financed Mr. Obama pay her bills before dropping the sand bag on his head. I don’t recall anyone ever referring to her as dumb, conniving, manipulative and scary? Yes. But dumb? No.

EHWhich leaves me with the presumptuous presumptive Democratic Party nominee. Like with Senator McCain, I have learned more and more about Senator Obama over the last few months. Unlike Sen. McCain though, my opinion of Barack Obama has transitioned from a somewhat harmless but charismatic unknown, to a well connected and very dangerous person. Very dangerous with respect to his passion for the socialist/communist model and very dangerous from his apparent hatred of traditional American views. I’m not saying we should be afraid of Mr. Obama personally, but we should fear for our nation’s future when we look at the laundry list of his friends, aquintences, partners and those who are cheering him on towards victory. The sad part of this story is how so much of our nation is being duped with his Eddie Haskell charm.

Today, I was happy to find that the RNC is actively working to call Senator Barack “Eddie Haskell” Obama on all his bologna. MeetBarackObama.com is a site they have launched to introduce America to both the man and his agenda behind the smile. Here is a little sampler.

No qualified presidential candidate should ask you to take a leap of faith.

Look before you leap. Look before you donate. Look before you vote.

Barack Obama is not right for our nation.

In fact, Barack Obama is so so so not right for our nation, that I would rather vote a McCain/Clinton ticket than an Obama/anyone ticket.
