Obama: All the Secret Socialism You Can Hide
No more pulling punches! This article, brought to my attention by The American Geek, is spot-on. It shines the harsh light of truth on Obama's coded speech. It is high time somebody did it! I have excerpted it heavily below, because you really really really need to read it.

During his NAACP speech earlier this month, Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. "I've been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served," he said at the group's 99th annual convention in Cincinnati.

And as president, "we'll ensure that economic justice is served," he asserted. "That's what this election is about." Obama never spelled out the meaning of the term, but he didn't have to. His audience knew what he meant, judging from its thumping approval.


"Economic justice" simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat. It's a euphemism for socialism.

In his latest memoir he shares that he'd like to "recast" the welfare net that FDR and LBJ cast while rolling back what he derisively calls the "winner-take-all" market economy that Ronald Reagan reignited (with record gains in living standards for all).

Obama also talks about "restoring fairness to the economy," code for soaking the "rich" — a segment of society he fails to understand that includes mom-and-pop businesses filing individual tax returns.

It's clear from a close reading of his two books that he's a firm believer in class envy. He assumes the economy is a fixed pie, whereby the successful only get rich at the expense of the poor.

Following this discredited Marxist model, he believes government must step in and redistribute pieces of the pie. That requires massive transfers of wealth through government taxing and spending, a return to the entitlement days of old.

Of course, Obama is too smart to try to smuggle such hoary collectivist garbage through the front door. He's disguising the wealth transfers as "investments" — "to make America more competitive," he says, or "that give us a fighting chance," whatever that means.

The few who have drilled down on his radical roots have tended to downplay or pooh-pooh them.

Even skeptics have failed to connect the dots for fear of being called the d readed "r" word.

But too much is at stake in this election to continue mincing words.


Those who care less about looking politically correct than preserving the
free-market individualism that's made this country great have to start calling
things by their proper name to avert long-term disaster.

As they say, read the whole thing. I'll be astonished if you can still support Obama after reading it.

I guess some people can't see the forest for the trees. Some people refuse to hear anything but what they want to hear. And while lofty ideas like universal health care and a living wage for all sound really good, they end up resulted in very bad things. Like...increased taxes and losing your business and no longer being able to afford employing people. It is almost as if some people have never been to a carnival!

For the record, those carnie games are losers. Why anyone would spend $20-$50 on a $1.50 Chinese-made stuffed toy is beyond me. But that's the best analogy I can come up with. Obama is selling crap and people are lining up for the opportunity to smell the shit!
