I must disagree with the man in the beginning of the video there. Obama isn't a fascist he is a socialist. There is a big difference. Bush was a
fascist Obama is a socialist.
Yes there is a huge difference, but Obama is not a socialist. If he was he would have my support. If he was a socialist he would be working towards
giving the means of production to the people.
I'll bet you anything by the end of Obamas reign the means of production will still be in private hands (capitalism) with maybe some owned by the
If the government gives the 'means of production' to the people who work it then we'd have socialism.
Bush was a corporate capitalist, and the coming together of corporation and government is a part
But in reality these days politicians really don''t care about following political ideologies, they care about their career and will do anything to
climb the ladder. The government has to please their masters, those with the capital to really dictate policy. In a capitalist system money is above
all and those with the most have the power, not government.
You are angry at the wrong person and the wrong situation. Where were all these people when Bush went to war on behalf of the oil industry? Don't
they realize how much that war is costing them? Can't they see the obvious?
Well no they can't because they're conditioned to believe the lies about terrorism and fighting for our freedoms. All that patriotic carp that the
sheeple all eat up.
Forget demonstrating against Obama, or Bush, it's the corporations, oil companies, capitalism, that got us into this mess.
I'm not an Obama fan at all, but I can see the hypocrisy of all this. Maybe Obama winning the presidency was set up on purpose to cause more
instability in the population, the PTB love that. Keeping us fighting with each other over irrelevant carp, and 'they' can carry on raping the
planet for their own gain while we are distracted with nonsense politics.
People are losing their homes because capitalism doesn't work, failure is the proof, and it's failing a lot of people right now. You shouldn't be
mad at the pres., you should be mad at the system that ultimately caused this mess.
Edit to add... OH and maybe this? costofwar.com...
