Quote of the Day

“Capitalism and communism stand at opposite poles. Their essential difference is this: The communist, seeing the rich man and his fine home, says: ‘No man should have so much.’ The capitalist, seeing the same thing, says: ‘All men should have as much.’ “

–Phelps Adams

Broken Promises = Broken Dreams

What is an undecided voter to do with information about an elected politican and presidential candidate who makes a promise, then breaks it before he is even elected?

In this campaign, few promises have been made other than the promise of “hope” and “change.”

Oh, and don’t forget spread the wealth.

But even CNN is starting to report on one broken promise that is hard to miss:  Barak Obama’s promise to accept public campaign financing and to work with his Republican counterpart to keep campaign spending in check.

Notice how quickly Obama shifted position…and how quickly that shift added considerable cash to his campaign chest.  CNN reports that the Obama campaign has raised over $600 million, a staggering amount that exceeds the amount raised by both George W. Bush and John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election.

What was Obama’s reason?  According to CNN’s Campbell Brown,

[H]e explained it by arguing that the system is broken and that Republicans know how to work the system to their advantage. He argued he would need all that cash to fight the ruthless attacks of 527s, those independent groups like the Swift Boat Veterans. It’s funny though, those attacks never really materialized.

So, by this Harvard graduate’s logic, it is essential to break a promise to fix a broken system…?

I wonder what broken system he will tackle next.  Perhaps Social Security…or Medicare.  And where he will get the cash to fix those broken systems?  What promises will he break and then dismiss as conveniently as this one?

As Machiavelli once said, “A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise.”

But the President is supposed to act in the best interests of the nation.  And Barak Obama has spent yearst to become an expert in just one thing–acting in his own best interests. 

Keeping that thought in mind, take a close look at this picture which ran in the NY Times:

The heading of the diagram reads:  “Relationships Built on Self Interest.”   You could say that about all of Obama’s relationships.

Count them:  Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dorne, Antonin Rezko, Jeremiah Wright, Nadmi Auchi, Khalid al-Mansoor, and Rashid Khalidi…just to name a few. 

While Obama spent 12 years lecturing at the University of Chicago Law School on Relationships of Self-Interest, his own life mirrored the principle perfectly.  After all, how many of us can count so many radicals among our circle of acquaintainces? 

What do they have in common…besides Barak Obama?  And while Obama was busy in Chicago, he was associated with ALL of them. 

For the majority of us, having only one relationship with any such extremist would raise serious issues of character.  Didn’t your mother always tell you that “you’re known by the company you keep.” 

And Obama’s associations with each of these people, though not entirely well vetted by the mainstream media, is easily established by most of us who rely on alternative media for our sources of fact.

But the more difficult question to answer that this photo raises is this one:  Why did these people keep company with Barak Obama?  What was their compelling self-interest?

How can one person maintain relationships with so many people whose views are far outside the views of the majority of mainstream Americans?

If Obama is elected president, we may know within the first six months.

But by then, more than just promises will be broken.

Redistribution = Marxism

FoxNews has uncovered a 7-year old radio with Senator Barak in which he discusses the failure of the civil rights movement to produce more equitable weath distribution in the United States.

Apparently Obama believes that change comes from the bottom up.  And if the masses of people who are blinded by Obama’s aura are any evidence of this reality, the America we have known will cease to exist in a hellstorm of new taxes, spending and redistribution, not just of money, but also of land.

To all citizens who have brokered land deals with the federal government to reduce tax burdens by placing lands in agricultural trust, listen closely:

The feds are on your heels.  And they are just about to rob you, not only of your land, but of your ability to make any money with it, either by agriculture or by resale.  You are about to be presented with a HUGE bill, for back taxes, penalties, and all manners of fees that you will owe to the federal government as a result of faulty assessed values on your property.  There will be NO MERCY.  If you are unable to pay, your property will be taken over by the federal government, stolen from you and sold to the highest bidder.

And you thought the bailout was bad.  First, the government takes control of the banks. This is the next step.  The government will control a huge portion of the land.

How do I know this?  I lived through a Marxist takeover of my household when my capitalist mother married a Communist.  And I know what will happen next.

I will be writing more detail about this subject all week.  Keep reading….

Redistribution = Marxism

The Obama Department of Peace and Non-Violence

Another big government spending program is about to be born.  We can thank Barney Frank and his cronies for putting their hands in our pockets yet again to see to it that everyone has the same “economic rights.” 

Everyone except our Congress.  Isn’t it amazing how many of them become rich during their tenure as our representatives?

Have a look at what is coming down the road:

Andy McCarthy writes

Kathryn & Jay, At least we know what will become of that 25 percent of the Defense budget Barney Frank want to slash from the protection of Americans.

The DC Examiner reminds us that already proposed in the House (HR 808) is the creation of a new, multi-billion dollar, cabinet-level monstrosity:  The Department of Peace & Non-Violence.  (Thanks to Dr. Andy Bostom for calling this to my attention.)

The DPN-V would house such vital new agencies as The Office of Peace Education & Training, the Office of Domestic Peace Activities, the Office of International Peace Activities, the Office of Technology for Peace, the Office of Arms Control and Disarmament (ACM — notwithstanding that Barnie seems to have that covered already), the Office of Peaceful Co-Existence and Non-Violent Conflict Resolution, and, of course, the Office of Human Rights and Economic Rights.  (Emphasis added.)

This, natch, is separate and apart from Wage Insurance (aka “Spreading the Wealth”), Obama’s proposed Global Poverty Act (aka Spreading the Wealth to the Globe through the UN), tax relief for oppressed classes such as trial lawyers (aka Spreading More Wealth to Top Democrat Donors); and gasoline subsidies (aka Spreading the Wealth to America’s enemies who are hurting now that oil is down to about $60/barrel).

No doubt this same bureau will be used to suppress public dissent over the outrageous expenditure of public monies that will improve the lives of everyone except the people who are paying for it: the US taxpayers.While we are allowing corrupt representatives to retain their positions of power, legislating and mandating more use of our hard earned dollars, those same dollars will be used to silence our protests in the name of “domestic peace” initiatives.
It will only be a short step before dissenting speech will be attacked as a “hate crime” and all objections will be crushed under the boot of a well-heeled domestic terror squad masquerading as the Department of Peace and Non-Violence.  Be prepared for “re-education camps” in the name of “Peace Education and Training”; be prepared for your computers and blackberries to be confiscated by the Office of Technology and examined for evidence of dissent.  Be prepared to suffer the consequences of holding a dissenting opinion.

Joe the Plumber did.  And government computers were used to investigate his background for asking a simple question.

 

Be prepared for violence as the tool for promoting and encouraging a specific domestic agenda.  Be prepared for violence as the tool for ensuring human and economic rights.   

It sounds like rioting and seizure to me…all executed under the Office of Peace.

A classic case of bait and switch. 

But while the New World Order is just around the corner masquerading as hope and change, the leadership is plotting…and scheming, transforming the American Dream right before our very eyes. 

Though the masks are slipping and we are beginning to get a good look at what lies beneath, we are still dreaming and hoping that somehow things will be different this election. 

But the monsters are growing, fed by hundreds of billions of dollars… of our money…and perhaps foreign money as well.

They look like our representatives, but they do not represent us or the values on which our government was founded. 

These are the true terrorists.

And they tap into our dreams…to establish their own.  They disarm us using our own ideals like freedom, justice and liberty, which are merely tools they warp and distort to achieve their own ends.

Then having entered our dreams, they do what all monsters do.

They terrorize us…and we freeze, helpless to help ourselves.

And our dream becomes a nightmare from which we cannot escape.

Only this nightmare is about to become a reality.  For evidence, take a hard look at the most recent election in Kenya.

No one can come to our rescue.

We must wake up.

America, WAKE UP.
