Is America Ready for Obama? Is America Ready for a Socialist?
Barack Obama… America’s First Socialist President?
Ebony Magazine– January 2007
Is America ready for a socialist in the White House?
USA Today asks the “big question” about Barack Obama today… But, it’s not what you would think, if you knew anything about the junior senator from Illinois.
The elite media is keeping its distance from Barak’s socialist past and present.
His Far Left voting record tells part of his Far Left story and his speeches and early days in New York dot the “i” and cross the “t” in socialist!
This is what Obama had to say about capitalism and free enterprise back in March 2006:
“The reason they don’t believe that government has a role in solving national problems is because they think government is the problem,” Obama said to approximately 1,500 people at the Kansas Democratic Party Washington Days convention.
Obama, a Democrat from Illinois, said Bush’s political philosophy consists of giving tax breaks and encouraging “everyone to go buy your own health care, your own retirement and security, your own child care, your own schools, your own private security forces, your own roads, your own levees.
“It’s called the ownership society. In our past there has been another name for it; it’s called social Darwinism. Every man or woman for him or herself,” he said.
The Opinion Journal published an article on Obama back in August 2004:
Obama, an Illinois state senator representing the South Side of Chicago, is in fact a far-left politician who — as I’ll show in a future column — seeks to force ever more socialist and racist laws and programs on the American people…
“Alongside my own deep personal faith, I am a follower, as well, of our civic religion,” he says. “I am a big believer in the separation of church and state. I am a big believer in our constitutional structure. I mean, I’m a law professor at the University of Chicago teaching constitutional law. [Actually, Obama is not a law professor, but a "senior lecturer.” As Chicago Sun-Times columnist Lynn Sweet has pointed out, and I know from six-and-a-half years as a college adjunct lecturer, "In academia, there is a vast difference between the two titles.” As Sweet also notes, however, Obama’s misrepresentation of his academic position is the least of his credibility problems.]
“I am a great admirer of our founding charter and its resolve to prevent theocracies from forming and its resolve to prevent disruptive strains of fundamentalism from taking root in this country.
Newsmax is one source that reported on his connections to controversial billionaire George Soros back in 2004:
“A lot of his policies have the government taking care of people. Instead of giving people a leg up, he would rather give them a leg.”
Soros initially was attracted to Obama because of his vision on education and health care, Vachon said. But Santos said if Obama got his way, the U.S. health care system would be worse than what Hillary Clinton proposed after her husband was elected president. She said voters should be wary of Obama’s “any time, anywhere” stance on abortion.
But, his socialist foundation was probably shaped most during those early days at the Socialist (Marxist) conferences he attended in New York City:
Obama wrote that the wealth and stark racial divisions of Manhattan in the early 1980s had a profound effect on him…
He went to socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyn and started lecturing his relatives until they worried he’d become “one of those freaks you see on the streets around here.”
So, the real question that USA Today should be asking- but won’t -is not if America is ready for a “rookie” in the White House, but rather, if America is ready for a socialist in the White House!
