Throughout America’s history communists and socialists have camouflaged themselves and hidden behind seemingly innocuous words like progressive, new freedom, new dealer, liberal, and Democrat. This year, President Obama has recycled an oldie but a goodie to mask his socialist policies, the buzzword for his re-election campaign is “populist.”
You see, for more than a century, socialists knew that they had to hide behind the veil of secrecy because if anyone ever pulled back the curtain of truth and exposed them, the American people would reject their subversive policies every time, because they are decidedly un-American. They made a grave miscalculation when Barack Obama was elected president; they thought they could finally come out of the closet (pardon my faux pas), that America was finally ready to accept socialism. However, they couldn’t have been more wrong, Obama’s election awakened the American electorate like never before, and in 2010, the political pendulum made a decisive swing back to the right.
Recognizing that they have lost momentum and that they no longer control the debate, President Obama and the Democratic socialists are preparing to pull out all the stops to preserve their power.
Resorting to his community organizer roots, President Obama’s administration engineered the Occupy Wall Street movement as the opening salvo of his class warfare campaign designed to pit the American people against one another. The demonstrations we saw last fall were simply a dress rehearsal for what we will see during the upcoming presidential election. Imagine a bunch of radical left wing protesters demonstrating outside your polling location. What will that do to voter turnout?
Sadly, the young Occupy Wall Street protesters are nothing political cannon fodder for the Democratic socialists; a means to an end in a desperate attempt to preserve President Obama’s power.
The poor have always been targeted by the Democratic socialists. Time and again the proletariat, as the socialists like to refer to the poor, has been duped by the socialist’s grandiose promise of a Utopian society, where everything is equal, regardless of what you do or do not do for a living. All you have to do is cast your ballot for a Democrat and everything will be handed to you on a silver platter. Wow, I can have a rood over my head, food in my pantry, and money to spend all for something as trivial as a vote. Count me in!
The problem with this liberal get rich quick scheme is that the only one who ever seems to benefit are the politicians. Deceitful politicians prey upon the poor as if a vote for them is akin to winning the lottery. The problem with the premise that a politician can somehow grant someone wealth and success without ever having to work is in direct opposition to nature’s law, “for whatever a man sows, so shall he reap.”
In 2008, Americans flocked to the polls to cast their ballot for Barack Obama despite dire warnings from conservatives that he was a socialist. In the end, Obama steamrolled John McCain to become America’s first socialist president. The media couldn’t contain themselves, socialist propagandist Chris Matthew said “I felt this thrill running up my leg.”Americans who were tricked by the snake oil salesman took to the streets exclaiming things like; “I never thought this day would happen, I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage.”
After three years and well over $5 trillion in debt (and still growing) President Obama’s unprecedented spending has only exacerbated America’s ailing economy. The president’s policies have crippled the job market, real unemployment is north of 20-percent. The president actually promised that energy prices would skyrocket and they have, the price ofgasoline has risen 83-percent since Obama took office. Something tells me that there are a lot of people worrying about how they are going to put gasoline in their car.
With nothing to point to in the way of success, the president is resorting to Marxism 101; blame the bourgeois, which is to say the evil rich people, claiming that they are not paying their fair share. Since they control the propaganda machine know as the mainstream media, most Americans swallow this political bilge without giving it a second thought. After all, why would a politician lie?
Of course the Democratic socialists will not tell you that America already has a massively unbalanced “progressive” tax system, ranging from 0 percent to 36 percent, and that only half the population pays any federal taxes.
No, the Democratic socialists want you to believe that you cannot change your circumstances, that achieving success on your own is little more than a foolish dream. The Democrats don’t want you to know that the American dream is alive and well. In fact, according to the book The Millionaire Next Door, over eighty-percent of the millionaires in America are self made. The majority of these millionaires have one thing in common, they own their own business. To contrast this even further: according to best selling author Robert Kiyosaki, the odds of becoming a millionaire playing the lottery is 12,000,000 to 1, however, the odds of becoming a millionaire by starting your own business is only 1,000 to 1. That’s right, one person out of every thousand is a millionaire, maybe your next door neighbor.
Unfortunately, socialist politicians have used this despicable class warfare ruse with great success over the years. They feed upon the human desire blame someone else for their lot in life. Regrettably the poor continue to fall for this political charade which has never done anything but spread misery in direct proportion to the size of the government they’ve elected.
