If Congress is so Pro-Small Business, then how come they spent $4 Trillion and there are NO new low interest loan programs available from the Gov for business owners, No Tax Cuts, No rules on litigation by Greedy Trail Lawyers, Nothing to help small business owners to create jobs or even stay in business? Congress is in fact Pro-Socialist, Anti-American Capitalist. WAKE UP! Speak Out Before you lose your job.”

This is a Facebook status change Michael Pinson is asking his supporters to use on their facebook for 24 hours. I’m still not exactly sure who he is, but whoever wrote this is tops in my book.

Ok, back to my “avoiding politics/avoiding news” phase!

“Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other…..It is between two kinds of deficits- a chronic deficit of inertia, as the unwanted results of inadequate revenues and a restricted economy- or a temporary deficit of transition, resulting from a tax cut designed to boost the economy, produce revenues, and achieve a budget surplus. The first type of deficit is a sign of waste and weakness- the second reflect an investment in the future.”

– John F. Kennedy, 1962

“We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”

I got the following comment on the photo of Obama dressed as Che Guevara…

“I’m not even sure what this means. I’m guessing it’s a swipe at Obama by likening him to Saddam Hussein. Or likening him to a Cuban Communist? What I’m unclear about is why?

I appreciate that everyone is entitled to their opinion. And if you don’t like his policies, fine. But why go there of all places? Can’t you say I do not support a woman’s right to choose? Or I don’t believe in global warming? Or I support more deregulation of the banking industry? Or I don’t like raising taxes on the super wealthy? Or even I don’t think gays should be allowed to marry? Or I don’t support funding public education? Or how about I do not support health care for everyone?

Why is it people feel the need to go there? It reminds me of when Saxby Chambliss portrayed Max Cleland as unpatriotic.

Let go of the ignorance. Let go of inciting hate and fear. Promote your policies on their merit, unless you are afraid they have no merit.”

Below was my answer to her…

Thank you for posting.

What I did is point out unfavorable policies by likening Obama to a historical figure who shared the same policies. It’s very effective cause it’s 1) humorous, and 2) able to show the direct effect of policies held by Obama.

Kinda like how Lefties love to say McCain is Bush.

But let me answer your questions, since you asked so nicely…

1) I don’t believe women have the right to choose. A baby is a separate human life. A baby in the womb is like a person in your house. You can kill the baby, but you can’t kill the person. Why? Because we like to confuse ourselves as to when a baby is “alive” out of convenience. Now, I know a woman’s life is sometimes made more difficult by pregnancy, which is why I would be open to some sort of 1-3 abortion limit per person. Above that, you don’t deserve a uterus.

2) I don’t believe in global warming being only caused by man. I believe it’s more of a cyclical occurrence that history proves quicker than man-made global warming. And when you ask developing countries in Africa to spend money on solar technology that is hundreds of times more expensive than fossil fuels at the moment… that’s just wrong.

3) I support appropriate deregulation in the banking industry. Remember… Fannie Mae collapsed because democrats like Clinton and Carter forced them to buy up bad loans. And when they couldn’t be repaid, they blamed the republicans for lack of regulation. What? Did the Democrats want the Republicans to regulate Fannie Mae and tell them what the Democrats were doing was wrong and destined to fail?

4) I don’t like raising taxes on the super wealthy. There is NO government/economic problem that can be fixed by taxing the wealthy more. That process digs us deeper into a hole… and fills the hole with water.

5) I think people in the gay community should be allowed to join legally in a union exactly like marriage. Just don’t call it marriage. Marriage is a religious word, with religious origins, and has nothing to do with government or policy. Gay people are just as deserving as straight people in every other respect.

6) I don’t support increasing funding the public education system that’s in place now… that was created by Democrats who have soley ruled public education in all major cities. And have done so to disastrous, miserable failures. I would much rather talk to teachers … who aren’t in unions… to find the solution on the education system. Democrats screwed up royally here.

7) I want everyone to have health care, but government funded universal health care is unattainable… and unsustainable. For example… medical technology in Canada is stuck in the 1970s… because their government can’t fund for advances in medicine like the free market can.

People go where I went all the time, Smartandfemale. I thank you for reading and commenting… but you have to be a little more light-hearted on this. Have a sense of humor. What i posted, and been done hundreds of times by Democrats. Obama himself incites fear in his ads. Don’t come to me with your righteousness.

You have no rule on morality.

Is this merit enough for you?

Please come back, since you’d like to debate on merit.

It’s been proven throughout time. Socialist economic policies, though they sound nice at the time, are horrible plans that stiffle our free market economy, lead to stagnation and eventually cause economic failure. Take two examples from good ol’ FDR’s administration…

Fannie Mae: Created in 1938 under FDR. It helped at the time. And that’s probably the truth with most socialist policies. They’re great to aid the government in helping it’s citizens for the short time it’s needed. But short-sighted democrats want to hold on to these policies and establish them. The result? The horrible economic mess we’re in now. Come on. I want to argue with you on it.

Social Security: So we’re paying into a program that isn’t going to have money for us when we retire, as promised, cause it will be bankrupt? Thus: Take our money… don’t give it back? Awesome.

And the keystone? The point to this post? These were social initiatives enacted by a socialist president voted into office by our grandparents.

– Bread lines existed in communist Russia. We haven’t had bread lines in The States in decades.

– Unemployment in Europe is double what it is in The States.

– Want to get an operation in Canada? Get in line. The waiting list is 16-months long, on average.

Let’s not do the same thing to our grandchildren. Spreading the wealth leads to a welfare state. A bunch of lazy citizens waiting for a handout.

I would have never believed this unless I saw it for myself. Remember earlier this year when Fox News broadcasted an image that showed one of Obama’s campaign offices with a Cuban flag and a sketch of Che Guevara? That’s what started me thinking, “Obama sounds a lot like Fidel Castro did in the 80’s”.

I started digging and, low and behold, similarities started to surface, i.e., “This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many; and gains from economic growth “skew heavily” toward the rich” (Obama). i.e., “We know how money is distributed and how money is collected. We know how to distribute the wealth and to make it as just as possible … The wealth the country produces has to be like oxygen. It has to reach everyone.” (Fidel Castro)

Following that I decided to look for similarities between Obama and the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and again I found very startling revelations. Obama’s platform of change is almost identical to the CPUSA platform as published by their website. “We have a deficit when CEOs are making more in ten minutes than some workers make in ten months; when families lose their homes so that lenders make a profit; when mothers can’t afford a doctor when their children get sick,” Obama said. This is unarguably an endorsement of the distribution of wealth ideas that are very popular in communist rhetoric. I believe that someone should remind Obama of this old saying, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he’ll eat forever.”

“They’re telling us we’re better off if we dismantle government – if we divvy it up into individual tax breaks, hand ‘em out, and encourage everyone to go buy your own health care, your own retirement security, your own child care, their own schools.” (Obama) This goes to show you that Obama just doesn’t get it. He believes that government should control what we buy, when we buy it and where our kids should go to school… and basically ask permission to step outside and get some fresh air. He goes on to say “We’re gonna need to tell the country what our plan is for the 21st century worker,” Obama. The workers’ party. Well doesn’t that ring a bell? Sort of like the communist workers party, huh? Well, that’s the sort of change I don’t want. “At a time when businesses are facing increased competition and workers rarely stay with one company throughout their lives, we also have to ask if the employer-based system of health care itself is still the best for providing insurance to all Americans,” Obama. This proves that he believes that America’s capitalist system just doesn’t work and that a socialist system should be adopted.

Now, you may be asking why he thinks that socialism is so great for America. Well, we need not look further than the people that surround him. My mother always said a common Cuban phrase, “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are”. I believe this to be true. One’s character is defined and molded by one’s experience, and if you are surrounded by certain ideas you begin to believe they are true. “Communist activists in the late 50s and early 60s choosing to marry cross-race as an attack on bourgeois society. It’s not implausible, as Barack’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a radical activist at the University of Hawaii, having been stimulated in high school by two teachers who were reputed to have been Communists.” This was taken from an article about Obama’s background and it explains that from his very conception he was being raised with these ideas. Later in life he goes on to say that he “spent his college days hanging around radical activists” (this from Obama’s own book). Again he surrounded himself with those who think America should be socialist.

Frank Marshall Davis, identified as a member of the CPUSA by the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii, appears to have mentored young Obama from 1971 to 1979, when he left Hawaii for college. I guess the question we should be asking is “when was he not surrounded by communists”. Obama then goes on to be called “the most liberal in the US Senate”.

Mind you, he was only there for less than two years.

Obama is a great speaker. Mike Kruglic, admiring Obama’s skill at this sort of manipulation: “He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.” Let me list just a couple of other great and influential speakers: Fidel Castro, Adolf Hitler.

“His employer was the Gamaliel Foundation. Gamaliel, an activist organization strangely merging the teachings of Marxist strategist Saul Alinsky with those of the Apostle Paul, operates with that same sense of religious destiny that we’ve noticed in both Barack and Michelle Obama’s speeches.” (http://www.plumbbobblog.com/?p=215) Obama speeches are directed toward the poor and middle class. He is quoted as saying that he is the candidate that will protect the middle class and grow it. A much smarter man said recently of his plan, “His will likely do for the world’s poor what Johnson’s War on Poverty did for the poor of the US — enslave them to the dole, enrich the bureaucrats who administer the programs, and waste an unimaginable amount of money, making the problem worse while driving taxation through the roof.” Obama’s tutelage would lead us to this frightening future, “We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: The stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission – which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”(Ayn Rand)

Many have supported Obama because they are either blinded by the economic troubles brought on by the socialist principle that everyone should own a home regardless of their income, or because they don’t see the danger of going down a path of socialism. This quote will leave you breathless,

“Senator, I will say this. I think that politically, historically, the one thing that people try to do, that society is structured on as a whole, is an attempt to satisfy their felt needs, and you can satisfy those needs with almost any kind of political structure, giving it one name or the other. In this name it is democratic; in other it is communism; in others it is benevolent dictatorship. As long as those needs are satisfied, that structure will exist.” (John Kerry)

So it does not surprise me at all that John Kerry would be such a strong supporter of Barack Obama. I leave you with this warning: beware for the next thing we will hear from Obama is “Elections? What for? The people have already chosen”. (Fidel Castro).
