Before I turned to Jesus Christ and traditional conservative principles in the 1980s, I was a Marxist/socialist operative in the Democratic Party who was convinced to support George McGovern and Jimmy Carter because they would move America closer to socialism and had the best chance of actually winning. I know a Marxist when I hear one, and Barack Obama is clearly a Marxist.
That does not mean that President Obama won’t sometimes move to the right in order to gain votes, get his way, or win an election. For example, a main tenet of Marxists is that sometimes you have to move one step back in order to go two steps forward. Thus, Obama agreed to remove the public option in the House healthcare bill in order to get a healthcare bill passed. For now. . .
So please be skeptical when President Obama, or some self-appointed media pundit, tells you he is not a socialist or that he supports capitalism.
Actions speak louder than words. The goal of the Marxist is to seize control of “the means of production.” And, that’s exactly what Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have done by passing and signing the healthcare bill. And, that’s what President Obama is trying to do through his “financial reform” bill in the Senate, which increases the federal government’s control of the “means of production” on Wall Street, and, by extension, on Main Street.
