You may think it was Stalin or Marx or even Castro or Mao but you would be mistaken.
Would it surprise you to learn that it was YOUR president Obama last week in Indonesia who uttered this stunning statement?

"Today, we sometimes hear that democracy stands in the way of economic progress,"

The shocking statement raises the question: Where has Obama heard this fatuous claim and with whom has he been talking politics?

It's true... Just because republicans demonize socialist economic views like it's their sole purpose in life doesn't mean they are fighting for our best interests.. They are looking out for the capitalists.. In 06 only 2% of US households were bringing in over $250,000 a year.. while the bottom 20% made less than $20,000 a year.. This format was doomed from the beginning and we have been warned time and time again. If you've never seen this article you should take a moment to read it with an open mind..

Start re-believing in Obama (or should I say Akhenaton^^)... "Democaracy", or this everlasting lie, nearly all the world is living with stands in our way. Money stands in our way! Wars are about money. All this greed and corruption would be gone, because without money it would all lack its need. Come On... we're not in Stone Age anymore, so where's the point in killing each other. It's just barbaric and unethical. And fighting each other over some currency is even more stupid. If we would live peaceful with each other, and if we would all think for ourself we would realise, that we're living on ONE Planet, and we could create a world together that is much better and much more advanced, then this trashcan it is since WWII. We don't need money... Money needs us.. if we stop believing in it, it would just fade away and leave us free.. and the world would get better...

yeah, unfortunately, people agreeing and getting along does get in the way of elites making money. I'm sorry. I didn't ask for a democracy, just was born into it.. trust me, I'd rather be living in dirt kneeling infront of an elite ruler.

and remind me again how many people flipped out over GW's comments:

" * "You don't get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier."—Texas Governor, George W. Bush, Governing Magazine, July 1998.

* "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."—President-elect George W. Bush,, December 18, 2000."

But I've got to cruise through the backwaters of a conspiracy board to learn of Obama's comment????
