no idea why i got sent this email..
but here it is.
headline was in capital i juts copied and pasted so don't cuss me.



When injustice becomes law, Resistance becomes duty...T. Jefferson We the People are coming! Obama's ROOM MATE SPEAKS OUT, (Geeeez....I didn't know anyone doubted..........) SNOPES HAS THIS AS CORRECT. This information has been distributed before but it is important to keep it in front of us. OBAMA'S COLLEGE ROOMMATE SPEAKS OUT By Wayne Allyn Root, June 6th, 2010 Barack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos-- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within. Barack Obama is my college classmate ( Columbia University , class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it. Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression? Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around." Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government. Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security. Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means. Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20% of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition. With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system. Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan. True per Snopes!

Well If I wanted to instate a laissez faire economy I would force the government to mis manage and crash, therefore making government the enemy, bankrupt and inept... or starve it... Although the first would be easier to do in a system so divided, because there would be no choice in the matter.

If I wanted Communism, I would need the government to appear competent to ensure there is not a revolt.
Unlike the first, I would need people to engineer the local infrastructure, rallies and membership... The first
would be easier IMO.

Anyhow, more whispers in the wind


I think Corprotocracy should be everyones real concern, just turn on your television or refresh the page you are on. Eventually we will be controlled by the contracts we sign and by the lack of any real option...

This is giving Obama entirely too much credit. He is not the brilliant mastermind behind our economic woes and plunge towards Sovietization. He is merely the latest front man for an organization that has been around for centuries. This plan was implemented many decades ago.

Your email says it all. Although I havd been accused of poltical trooling and have lost hundreds of points in Warnings, I will continue to voice my opposition to, and of, this adminstrations socialist Objectives!
The socialist adjenda of this adminstration along with their an.d the former adminstations attack on our Constitution will destroy the USA. That is why this November I will vote out all incumbents ans elect Non-Democrats into office.

Room mate? No.
Root was at Columbia University along with Obama in 1983.

Gee whiz. A Libertarian writes an op ed about Obama claiming he's a Marxist. Surprise. He's not the first and he won't be the last.

I've seen precious little about Obama's early years..

If this guy wasn't his room mate the who was?

To your second part, I don't care where the information comes from if it can be proved..
Lets face it, it's usually the opposition that digs up the dirt from all sides..

The proof is in what is, and has been happening at obama's direction..

And the above outlines perfectly what obama has been doing..

So it is intentional afterall.
He is screwing it up just so that millions will have no choice but to suck on the government teet for the rest of their lives.

So I guess now he can stop blaming Bush now.

Absolutely...this email is another example of the ongoing efforts to try to make Obama look like he just walked in and began implementing his own evil plan of world domination...sort of in line with the "Obama is the Antichrist" nonsense.

Obama is doing none of this on his own. He and his wife are a couple of power-hungry, self-serving, "keep up with the Joneses" types who would step on anyone to get to the top. He happened to be a slick talker and black. He fit the bill as far as TPTB were concerned because he was everything that was OPPOSITE of Bush, and they knew everyone would be inclined to support someone like that. While everyone was all caught up in the "OMG, we're gonna elect our first black president," TPTB were doing their thing behind the scenes so our economy would fall flat.

Obama thought he really got a great deal, but his selfish decisions at the expense of his fellow countrymen will backfire. He made a deal with the devil(s) so he could have prestige and power, but it's all going to blow up in his face...and TPTB knew it would happen like this. They won't be there to help Obama when the s--- hits the fan--and it will hit the fan. The problem is, he's not the only president that is guilty in this scenario, there are others--and neither political party is innocent.

I blame it on greed, we are in the toilet because we worship wealth and have forgotten that quantity is no match for quality. We fawk our own country so that point of sales remains steady, but we also dig our own graves with our desire for instant gratification -


I disagree, this country will never demand whole sale socialism, NEVER. I don't even know any American lefties who would advocate for it, but I do think many people could become completely fed up with the government and shun the entire idea if things crash...

BTW I think we have a hybrid system currently and I think both schools have dreadful qualities and great ones too.

"SNOPES SAYS IT IS TRUE"

What is true? That this guy was actually Obama's roommate? I was expecting something a bit more personal. After all, this is supposed to be someone who lived with the guy for at least a semester - yet the email contains NOTHING of ANY personal nature. It's all opinions and nothing that couldn't be opined from existing literature.

Not once did the guy relate any of his opinions to personal experiences with Obama. Not once! It's just a useless opinion piece.

If he wants to increase the number of entitlements why does he not give service connection to all the blue water agent orange veterans and those veterans that were exposed to agent orange on Guam and Johnston island.

That would only be fair to all those veterans.
bluewaternavy.org...
cybersarges.tripod.com...
www.dbitpro.com...

Since i had boots on the ground at both Guam and Johnston island and am a blue water Vietnam veteran(with no boots on the ground in vietnam) with heart problems and diabetes i would be service connected for agent orange exposure

If this guy wasn't his room mate the who was?

"This guy" doesn't say he was Obama's room mate. "This guy" (the guy who wrote the opinion piece) says:

Barak Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83).

Classmate. Along with a thousand or so other classmates. "This guy" doesn't even say he ever talked with Obama.

There is nothing to be proved, except that everything in the article is the opinion of the writer. Yes, Snopes agrees.
