Obama is Not a Socialist – He’s Something Worse

A Democracy Corps (left-leaning group started by James Carville) poll found that 55% of Americans polled believe that “Socialist” accurately describes the President.  That seems low and if the question had been changed to, “Does Capitalist describe our President?” I believe the number would have been darned-near zero.

While the Socialist moniker has been tossed about when discussing our anti-free-enterprise leader, I don’t think it’s as accurate as it could be.  Looking back through the history of Socialism, there are many things that point to Obama missing the mark.  Is it because he doesn’t understand the economic principle or that he understands that it is a great distraction or possibly a transition for the framework he feels should actually be put in place in America?

LeninThe Cloward-Piven strategy was intended to create an atmosphere ripe for Socialism, but I believe it’s being used to create what even Lenin lamented on his death-bed.  Lenin had witnessed his dream of a true Socialist government turned into nothing more than, “a bourgeois tsarist machine… barely varnished with socialism.” – the same classist elitism Lenin had struggled to end.

If Obama were a true Socialist, he would be looking for the Utopian society of ultimate equals that Lenin sought  – he is not.  In Verdery’s, What Was Socialism and What Comes Next the author creates a term that describes well one part of what I feel Obama is after: “Bourgeoiscracy” or well-connected party members that use their political office and connections to enrich themselves.

When the press or citizenry hit a nerve, Obama responds (or at least sends Gibby out to respond).  When criticism was leveled at health care reform, Jeremiah Wright or Professor Gates there were speeches, interviews and media events.  The media, pundits and majority of Americans have been calling Obama a Socialist for quite some time.. no reaction, no defensiveness, nothing – why?  It’s the perfect distraction.  He’s not trying to put a Socialist economy in place, he’s focused on the destruction of what is here so he can replace it with something much worse than Socialism: Entitlism (yeah, I had to make-up a new word for this idiocy).

At least Socialism either places value on the amount of work that goes into producing a thing or the end-use value of a product.  Entitlism figures that a person or entity deserves resources or wealth based solely on theKing Barack favor of the government.  In other words, people should get services, food, housing, cars, money because they do what Obama feels they should be doing or have suffered some ill that the ruling class feels is deserving of reward.  It isn’t about what the populace needs (Communism), nor what the country needs (nationalism, fascism or statism), not even what the world needs (One World Government) – it’s about what Obama and his ruling elite feel the commoners deserve.

It seems obvious that the Obama dream is a “Bourgeoiscracy” as a governing framework and Entitlism as the economic framework.  This fundamentally redefines the common good.  While fascist regimes determine what is good for commoners, entitlism allows the elitist Bourgeoicrats to decide who is common. Perhaps the rest of us will be fortunate enough to work for the good of the selected, chosen or preferred citizens – the deserving.

What’s worse is that even supposed conservatives are falling into Obama’s trap.  House Minority Leader, John Boehner, was paraphrased in a Washington Times article as suggesting that Social Security could be fixed by , “..curbing benefit growth by tying cost-of-living increases to the consumer price index rather than growth in wages, and providing benefits only to those who need them”.  Providing goods or services to a citizen based on need, oddly familiar – but still just a stepping stone to where Obama would take us – or a sleight of hand so that we focus on the specter of European socialism while he works to put something else in place.

If Obama was following the communist play book, the first step would be a Socialistic transition: Socialism concentrates on ownership of the means of production and creating a meritocracy.  The phrase, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his contribution” illustrates that contributing to national production merits reward.  And step two would be the Communistic end-game, destruction of property rights, removal of value from goods and services, and modifying the phrase to, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need”.  Need has nothing to do with his plan.

Obama’s goal define the entitled – the deserving – and make a gradual transition to “from each according to his ability, to each according to his favor with the ruling elite” – enslavement.  Any system of government that decides who gets what based on any criteria will by it’s nature create inequality.  As Orwell portrayed in Animal Farm, “All animals are equal, some are more equal than others”.

Consider just a few of the Obama administration’s policy stances of late:

  1. Illegal Immigration:  Electing not to enforce laws against a set of people regardless of merit (productivity).
    • He has decided that illegal immigrants deserve the benefits of American citizenry because they act in a way desired by the rulers: they vote Democrat
  2. Health Care Reform: Brass-ring style health care insurance at roughly similar costs regardless if someone has taken care of themselves or not.
    • This will make more Americans dependent upon the government for yet another service.
    • Those who depend on government services overwhelmingly vote Democrat: deserving
  3. The ruling elite are planning to push the Union’s corrupt enlistment plan, card-check, during the upcoming lame-duck Congress
    • Unions are an anti-capitalistic force that will help bring about the transition Obama needs on the way to his entitlist dream: deserving
    • Unions vote heavily Democrat: deserving
  4. When Obama took over GM, he abandoned contractual agreements and put Unions above primary bond holders during the bankruptcy
    • The bond holders actually had taken a risk and invested in the company and were not treated fairly in the settlement.  Investors at this level tend to not vote Democrat: not deserving
    • Unions vote heavily Democrat: deserving
    • Unionized labor is an excellent tool for the creation of crisis (strikes, destruction of industry, condemning capitalism): the deserving
  5. Department of Justice dropping the New Black Panther suit against all but one of the poll place intimidation convicts and lowering the remaining convicts punishment substantially
    • The DOJ is alleged to have a new policy that prevents the prosecution of cases where the defendant is black (deserving) and the victim is white (undeserving)
    • The NBPP believes that it stands to seek reparations for it’s members simply because other groups got them: the deserving
  6. Repeal of the “Bush Tax Cuts” that relieve some of the extremely-progressive tax structure on the most-productive in our society
    • Those that will be hit with the Obama tax increase are largely Conservative voters: undeserving
    • The wealthy in our society have already been rewarded for their work: undeserving

Obama’s true goal is not to push us into Socialism.  It isn’t Communism, fascism, or any other currently-defined -ism – it’s somewhere near the authoritarian mess that was Communism during it’s downfall in Russia.  Not Marxism, but something similar to what Stalin put in place when Marx’s ideas failed to create the Utopia it promised.

This is simply my belief of where Obama would like to take the country and the world.  I also believe that real Americans will see this for what it is and turn things around.  2010 is more important than just preventing Cap-and-Trade or card check – it’s about protecting that which made this country great: individual liberty, free-market capitalism, and equality of opportunity.  Capitalism is not a dirty word.  Capitalism is simply being rewarded by a free-market for the product or services offered.  Those that color it negatively desire wealth for which they have no desire to work or take the necessary risks.  They feel that they are entitled to it.

Redistribution of wealth according to favor of the ruling elites is precisely the type of  Tyranny the founding Fathers worked so hard to prevent.  Obama’s disregard for the Constitution appears to be a purposeful plan.  Depending upon our status with the leadership we will either be relieved of our property or given someone else’s.  Deserving or undeserving, how will you rate?

  1. Entitlism, indeed that goes hand in hand with the outcry for “Slave Reparations” which they want collected from people that never owned slaves, and this goal of Collective Salvation.

  2. Could Obama Be America’s First Defacto President?

    Innocent Americans increasingly are sent to prison based on false evidence manufactured by police forensic crime labs. Now President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do.

    Compare: Two days after the 1933 burning of Germany’s Parliament Building, blamed on communists, Hitler responded with a powerful speech before Parliament. Hitler asked Parliament to suspend sections of the Reich Constitution that protected Citizens’ Rights and Civil Liberties. Hitler said the suspension was necessary so government could protect the homeland from being destroyed by communists. Hitler promised Parliament the Constitution would later be restored. After Parliament passed Hitler’s Discriminatory Decrees and Hitler signed it February 28, 1933, Hitler immediately used the news laws to abolished Parliament. See Hitler’s 1933 Discriminatory Laws below:

    Obama gave a speech in May 2010, that proposed incarcerating in indefinite prolonged detention without evidence, any person government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future; that would include U.S. Citizens “without evidence of wrongdoing.” With that amount power Obama like Hitler could arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned indefinitely based only on Government’s claim they are a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future.

    If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists could be subject to arrest, Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise that person is likely to support violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be extremely vulnerable because no activist can control what another activist or group might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to allege a person; group or organization might commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful participants with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out. See: Obama Sound-Video https://www.brasschecktv.com/page/630.html

    It is foreseeable any “individual” who writes on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against or entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners could be deemed by authorities a “Combatant” or likely to engage in or cause violent acts: government too easily could claim an author’s writings inspired people in the past and will in the future to commit or support violent acts. It is problematic that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings or allowed legal counsel; interrogated, will be prosecuted for ordinary crimes because of their alleged admissions while held in indefinite Prolonged Detention. Obama wants the power to override the U.S. Constitution. Obama wants the power to detain indefinitely any American without probable cause or evidence, based on conjecture someone might do something violent in the future.

    Obama similar to Hitler is centralizing power in the federal Government by getting passed legislation the U.S. government could potentially use to intimidate and threaten corporations among others. Hitler got passed similar laws shortly before the burning of the German Parliament building blamed on the communists. Immediately after the fire, Hitler used his new laws to coerce corporations and influential Citizens to support passage of fascist legislation that suspended provisions of the German Constitution that protected Citizens’ freedoms and civil liberties. Obama is now approaching a position where he can use similar new laws, including the Patriot Act and 200 asset forfeiture laws to seize any corporation or individual’s assets; and force U.S. corporations and other institutions like Hitler did to support legislation that threatens or curtails rights of Americans.

    More recently Obama has moved forward to crush Free Speech, silence his critics by pushing passage of HR 5175 Disclose Act: this abomination will choke the 1st Amendment, denying the right of free speech to ordinary Americans. Under Title II: groups like Gun Owners of America and other groups including bloggers that only mention “public officials” within 60 days of an election, could be required to file onerous disclosures–and potentially have to disclose their membership lists—despite the Supreme Court ruling in NAACP v. Alabama that held membership lists like those of GOA’s) are off limits to government control. Is Obama’s support of HR 5175 similar to what Hitler did to shut up his critics? In the run up to Parliament passing his police state laws including the 1933 Discriminatory Decrees that abolished Citizen’s Free Speech, Hitler employed thugs to beat up reporters, arrest anyone who had courage to criticize the Fuhrer or his Nazi government or expose introduced legislation. Is Obama by supporting HR 5175 to shut up his critics, trying to take America to the same place?

    Alarmingly the Obama Government recently employed a vendor to search Internet social networking sites to collect information about Americans that could potentially be used by this government to injure Americans, for example, if you apply for a federal job, your name might be crossed referenced by the Obama Government with comments you made at Websites against Obama; or if you make application at a bank for a loan the Government has control since the financial crisis, could your Internet comment(s) prevent you getting that loan? Obama’s monitoring of the Internet sites can too easily be used by Government to intimidate Citizens from speaking out. Obama Top CZAR Cass Sunstein prepared a 2008 paper that proposed spying on Americans, infiltrating groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that might question government.

    Note: Based on translations by State Department, National Socialism, 1942 PP. 215-17, and Pollak, J.K., and Heneman, H.J., The Hitler Decrees, (1934), pp. 10-11.7

    In virtue of Section 48 (2) of the German Constitution, the following is decreed as a defensive measure against Communist acts of Violence, endangering the state:

    Section 1
    Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice. Thus, restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly and the right of association, and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications, and warrants for house-searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.

    Section 2
    If in a state the measures necessary for the restoration of public security and order are not taken, the Reich Government may temporarily take over the powers of the highest state authority.

    Section 4
    Whoever provokes, or appeals for or incites to the disobedience of the orders given out by the supreme state authorities or the authorities subject to then for the execution of this decree, or the orders given by the Reich Government according to Section 2, is punishable—insofar as the deed, is not covered by the decree with more severe punishment and with imprisonment of not less that one month, or with a fine from 150 up to 15,000 Reichsmarks.

    Whoever endangers human life by violating Section 1, is to be punished by sentence to a penitentiary, under mitigating circumstances with imprisonment of not less than six months and, when violation causes the death of a person, with death, under mitigating circumstances with a penitentiary sentence of not less that two years. In addition the sentence my include confiscation of property.

    Whoever provokes an inciter to or act contrary to public welfare is to be punished with a penitentiary sentence, under mitigating circumstances, with imprisonment of not less than three months.

    Section 5
    The crimes which under the Criminal Code are punishable with penitentiary for life are to be punished with death: i.e., in Sections 81 (high treason), 229 (poisoning), 306 (arson), 311 (explosion), 312 (floods), 315, paragraph 2 (damage to railroad properties, 324 (general poisoning).

    Insofar as a more severe punishment has not been previously provided for, the following are punishable with death or with life imprisonment or with imprisonment not to exceed 15 years:

    1. Anyone who undertakes to kill the Reich President or a member or a commissioner of the Reich Government or of a state government, or provokes to such a killing, or agrees to commit it, or accepts such an offer, or conspires with another for such a murder;

    2. Anyone who under Section 115 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious rioting) or of Section 125 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious disturbance of the peace) commits the act with arms or cooperates consciously and intentionally with an armed person;

    3. Anyone who commits a kidnapping under Section 239 of the Criminal with the intention of making use of the kidnapped person as a hostage in the political struggle.

    Section 6
    This decree enters in force on the day of its promulgation.

    Reich President
    Reich Chancellor
    Reich Minister of the Interior
    Reich Minister of Justice

  3. Most Americans have never heard of the leftist End Game, if they did they would understand where Obama intends to take America.

    Historically leftists have believed Socialism/Marxism can only be achieved through deceit, lies and sacrificing anyone to advance their cause. Obama has already sacrificed the trust of Americans, repeatedly lied about most everything since he took office, and in the run up to the White House duped middle of the road Democrats to elect him President. Now Obama is ready to sacrifice the entire Democratic Party next election, giving amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants. Middle of the road Democrats just can’t understand why Obama will throw them under the bus in November if he can get amnesty first for 12 million illegal immigrants. Obama wants to insure that when he leaves office, 12 million illegal immigrants can stay in the U.S., and the border is still open so 12 million more illegal immigrants can enter America; that will insure Obama’s leftist constituency can find back to back—several million foreign born residents to push a Marxist U.S. Government. Do Americans actually think anything they say in protest will discourage Mexican illegal immigrants moving to their state? Mexican illegal immigrants come from a country where force is commonplace. But illegal immigrants do understand getting arrested by police and that is why they have to shut down Arizona’s new anti-immigration law. Arizona’s new law threatens the leftist agenda that includes overburdening financially U.S. Government, local and state infrastructures to cause economic chaos.

    Leftists historically move on democracies to take power when things are in chaos. Obama is now in position to cause that chaos. But unexpectedly, to the dismay of the left, Americans in state after state are standing up to support Arizona. If the Arizona law passes in enough states, and amnesty does not pass, the leftists will have lost a strong weapon to destroy America.

    Consequently leftists have become desperate and are now in the process of trying to consolidate 170 liberal and civil rights groups into a coalition to match the Tea Party’s political energy and influence—this should be taken seriously. The first question: “Who are the players behind this new liberal coalition?” Historically in America, leftists have displayed a victim mentality, giving up, not voting after the political tide turned against them, as it has now. Obama as a Presidential candidate managed to motivate and hold leftist factions together; and gain the support of ethic groups that prior, were at odds. However, since the election Obama’s policies have fractured the left, Obama has lost most Independents. So who is going to organize and motivate the new coalition of 170 liberal and civil rights groups? In other countries, to affect the outcome of elections, extreme leftists have formed liberal and human rights coalitions covertly coordinated by Communists and labor unions.

    Typically when communists are concerned they will lose elections, they cause chaos, creating protests; obscure important issues with misinformation to confuse voters, so they will vote for their leftist candidates. In America should Communists be identified, playing an integral role in the new 170 liberal/civil rights groups’ coalition, Patriots should vehemently expose early the communists and their associations. Millions of younger Americans, thanks to the educational system, don’t comprehend that communism calls for the overthrow of democratic governments as the United States; and abolishing their Constitution.
