Obama is nowhere near being a communist, he's far from it. Technically no one on this planet knows what a true communist is because no country has
ever seen communism in it's truest form. Russia and the whole eastern bloc wasn't communism, there was no equality. Same goes for Cuba. "
Wow....By "some of us", do you mean you and you're invisible friend? I say that because most of the posts on your thread seem to always come from
you, as if you're having a discussion with yourself. If you aren't able to pick up on the fact that, as stated in the story you referenced, the
determination that North Korea (a communist country) was responsible for the attack on their submarine, you seem to be making up your own news. As for
Obama, he has stated repeatedly that he is a progressive, which, according to their own literature published around the very inception of the movement
(early 1900's) is a rebranded version of communism. The word communism comes from the term communal living, and at it's core is the redistribution
of wealth. From each according to his means, to each according to his needs. That is why obama, in his own words, advocates redistribution of wealth.
You'll remember that this made Joe the Plumber famous. It also explains why no fewer than 15 of his "czars" are avowed marxists (that's communist
Also at the core of the progressive movements was something called eugenics. Basically, if you can't justify your existence via some contribution to
the "community", they kill you. For example, if a guy's only claim to fame were making up fake news stories that served no purpose, they may kill
him, as so not to have to support him. In some cases, modern conservatives like me can see where eugenics may be beneficial, for example, about half
of the citizens in this country pay not tax, and consistently vote for those who promise to redistribute the wealth of others to them via welfare,
food-stamps, flat out bribes (like the "earned" income tax credit) and other free government cheese. This might be an excellent place to start these
As for no communist countries ever having existed, have you ever heard of the USSR, China, North Vietnam, North Korea......................and on and
on and on? I could do this all day. The fact that they had no equality is communism by design. Perhaps it should tell you something that there has
never been a "happy and functional" communist country. You have a ruling class, and "the people." Unfortunately, in the case of communism the
people are suckers. Remeber, equal and fair are seldom the same thing. Take me, and the thirty year-old guy at waffle house that cooked my breakfast
this morning. Are we equal? In a sense we are. He has the same opportunity as I did....to work my way through college, bust my butt, be responsible,
stay out of jail, take care of my family, learn about my industry, become an asset by providing marketable retirement solutions that change the
outcome for my clients, and thereby make a great living. Are we economically equal? No. I suspect he made (so far) a much poorer set of choices, that
landed him at the waffle house. Is that fair. You bet. Life is what you make it. It's up to you. And it isn't my responsibility to bail him out of
his poor choices (perhaps jail, drugs, drop out, illegitimate kids he can't support and keep being able to afford college).
In short, you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Oh well, best you get back to adding replies to your own post. I have to go create
global warming and exploit poor folks by getting in my big honkin' V8 powered Mustang GT and take my wife to dinner, where I'll probably eat a 16
oz. filet with the profits I made on the backs of unsuspecting investors. Might as well eat before Obama nationalizes the restaurants. Ice down those
marbles and have a nice day.
