Sounds like a blatantly agressive thread but this is an attempt to show hat Obama believes in the basic tenents of marxism as a way to modify America
which he sees as a "broken" country.
According to ANSWERS.COM...
Marx wrote far more about capitalism than about the society that would follow the proletarian revolution. He made it clear, however, that he
expected the revolution of the working class to socialize the means of production and create a dictatorship of the proletariat. That dictatorship
would be the workers' state, but its existence would be temporary, as society moved from the first, transitional phase of communism to the higher
phase, in which the full potential of communism would be realized, so that class differences would have disappeared, the state would have died off,
and each person would contribute to society according to personal ability and receive material benefits according to need.
Match this to his 2001 interview...
Obama on redistribution (transcript of 2001 interview)
OBAMA: If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded
was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch
counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be okay.
But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice
in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from
the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court
interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says
what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And
that hasn’t shifted. One of the I think tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I
think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the
actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.
You need to ask yourself...
Do you want a Marxist America?
If you do...great. Be proud and accept that others disagree.
If you don't, great. Be proud and accept that others disagree.
But do not kid yourself. Obama is and always was a Marxist. He "chose his friends carefully."
