Barack and Michelle Obama's Socialist Plans For America

American Thinker ...for complete article

For conservatives opposed to an Obama presidency, the last few days have brought the wonder of the smoking gun: Obama really was a socialist. Combine that hidden paper trail with his Ayers affiliation, and it's reasonable to believe that Obama still holds these socialist political views.

In order to stir ordinary Americans to the sense of outrage those of us in the blogosphere feel, we need to remind them that socialism is not simply a more liberal version of ordinary American politics. It is, instead, its own animal, and a very feral, dangerous animal indeed.

My favorite example is always Nazi Germany because so many people forget that it was a socialist dictatorship. Or perhaps they're ignorant of the fact that the Nazi's official and frequently forgotten name was the National Socialist German Worker's Party. In other words, while most people consider the Nazi party to be a totalitarian ideology arising from the right, it was, in fact, a totalitarian party arising from the left.

Practically within minutes of the Nazi takeover of the German government, individuals were subordinated to the state. Even industries that remained privately owned (and there were many, as opponents of the Nazis = socialist theory like to point out), were allowed to do so only if their owners bent their efforts to the benefit of the state. Show a hint of individualism, and an unwillingness to cooperate, and you'd swiftly find yourself in Dachau, with a government operative sitting in that executive chair you once owned.

We all know what life was like in this Nazi socialist state. Citizens immediately lost the right to bear arms; thought crimes were punished with imprisonment and death; children were indoctrinated into giving their allegiance to the state, not the family; the government dictated the way in which people could live their day-to-day lives; and people who appeared to be outliers to the harmony of the conscienceless government entity people were dehumanized and eventually slaughtered.

And here's something important for you to realize as you think about what happened in that socialist state. While a core group of people, Hitler included, undoubtedly envisioned these extremes as their initial goals, most didn't. They just thought that, after the utter chaos of the 1920s (especially the economic chaos), the socialists would calm the economy (which they did), and simply remove from people the painful obligation of having to make their way in the world. It was only incrementally that the average German bought into the ever-more-extreme demands of the state - and those who didn't buy in were coerced because of the state's unfettered willingness to use its vast, brute power to subordinate individuals to its demand.

Regardless of Obama’s presumed good intentions, socialism always brings a society to a bad ending. I don’t want to believe that Americans who live in a free society that allows people to think what they will, do what they want, and succeed if they can, will willingly hand themselves over to the socialist ideology. They must therefore be reminded, again and again and again, that socialism isn’t just another political party; it’s the death knell to freedom. So remember, while McCain wants to change DC, Obama wants to change America.


Wild Thing's comment.......

The article is excellent and just too long to put here. If you have the time it is well worth reading.

We are getting down to the wire now in this election and there are still too many people that either are not listening or don't understand how dangerous Obama is for our country.

America is so wonderful and imo this election is the most important one in my lifetime.

Great article Chrissie. Back a few years I personally witnessed what happens when two competing ideologies wrought terror upon the citizenry, I was somewhat blissfully ignorant at first but come to realize that most people only want to be left alone, they want food, shelter and security. During that time both ideologies abused the citizens, on one hand they became dependent on the established regime that abused their human rights just to survive the horrors of war, on the other they were murdered in the thousands for fraternizing and supporting the corrupt regime. They couldn't win no matter who was at the helm. From it's beginning in the Communist Russian Revolution the overriding theme is to literally eliminate the opposition. This is what happened in Germany, Italy, Spain and France of WWII, The same horrible totalitarianism was imposed by the Japanese in China, Indochina, Malaya, Burma and the Philipines. We saw the same thing happen in Korea and China under Communist rule. As a result of capitulation under the Democrats most of these atrocities have occurred, and I might add with their blessings. I don't want to see that happen in the United States but I distinctly see the potential of that under Obama. If you don't believe that the 'Socialists' don't practice a scorched earth police toward the resisters, please review what happened at Hue, RVN in 1968. Look no further than the fall of Saigon and the subsequent butchery in Cambodia and Laos for evidence. The wholesale slaughter of innocents in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Africa, ad infinitum to establish an islamic ideology should sober Americans to the threat this poser presents. Communism meets Islam and the Democrats are bringing it to the nation. McCain not Hussein!!!
