Obama's mother was a Marxist (as was his biological father). Obama was a member of the Democratic Socialists Party.
You can tell a lot about a person by the friends he has. Who are Obama's friends?
Bill Ayers, the founder of the Weathermen Terrorists group is a Marxist: And he held a fundraiser for Obama at his (Ayers) home.
Carol Browner, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is a Marxist. She recently was heard praising Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.
Hilda Solis, Obama's Labor Secretary is not only a Marxist, she has ties to the Communist Party.
Henry Louis Gates teaches African American Studies at Harvard and is Director of the W.E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. So, what's wrong with that? 1) Du Bois was an avowed Communist and a Socialist sympathizer. 2) Henry Louis Gates has recruited radical black activists to his university department.
Anthony Van Jones was Obama's pick to make sure the $30 Billion from the stimulus earmarked for green-jobs funding attached to it gets "doled out appropriately." Who is Van Jones? He is a self-professed Communist who dreamed of a multicultural "Socialist Utopia."
Both Anita Dunn (Communications Czar) and Ron Bloom (Manufacturing Czar) praised Mao Zedong in public speeches in the last 17 months for fighting his own war and going against public policy. Are you serious? Mao Zedong? Leader of the Chinese Communist party from 1935 until his death in 1976. Known as the greatest mass murderer in history? (70 million Chinese, and countless others). That's like admiring Hitler for his "determination."
Are we really going to just sit back and let Obama turn our Democracy over to Communists, Marxists, and Socialists? His health care plan is just the first step. If he gets his way, what will be next? He is single handedly bankrupting America. . We’ve allowed our government to borrow $80,000 per household, a debt our children will inherit when they become adults. My grandson is 3. At the rate we are going, by the time he enters the workforce, the government debt per household will probably be two or three times what it is now. He shouldn't have to clean up our mess.
As for me, I don't buy it when Joe Biden tells Americans that the debt we are creating is what will save America from going bankrupt - Does he really believe we are that dumb?
Two quotes from Benjamin Franklin leap to mind: "You have a republic, madam, if you can keep it"; and, "They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security."
(p.s. If you do a Google search on "Obama's communist ties" you'll get 807,000 results)
I liked "Northshore's" comment so much I decided to put it out here for all to read:
Harold B. Lee's Quote on America:
"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be great drought, disaster, and hardship, but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. ... Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won't fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America, if we understand the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are living in a day when we must pay heed to these challenges.I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials or crises it may yet have to pass through. (Ye Are the Light of the World, 350-51)
Okay, in light of this quote, I'll back up just a little bit. I don't want to preach pessimism. The good news is that this is a free country and we are each entitled to our personal beliefs (including Obama). The other good news is that he can't do anything without OUR approval. The only way for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. There are a lot of good men shining bright lights on and around Obama.
