Obama Corrupting America With Socialism

Psychiatrist: Obama corrupting America with socialism

Book author warns economic 'rescue' will turn citizens into 'wards of state'


By Chelsea Schilling

Only a month into Barack Obama's presidency, an acclaimed psychiatrist is warning that Americans are being slowly corrupted by socialism as Obama's policies intrude into their economic, social and political lives – a tactic he believes will secure future votes for the Democratic Party.

"We have a desperate population, and it's feeling even more desperate than usual," Dr. Lyle Rossiter told WND. "People are really quite frightened. They're looking for magic, and they think they are going to find it in this man."

Rossiter is a forensic psychiatrist and author of "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." In his book, he explains how the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and the Democratic Party can only be understood as a psychological disorder. He examines how modern liberal collectivism undermines the legal and moral foundations of ordered liberty.

Rossiter warned that Obama, after only six weeks in office, is well on his way to institutionalizing a modern parental state – and his socialist programs will ultimately damage the moral fiber of the American people.

"This is not a stimulus program that is going to work economically," Rossiter said. "In the meantime, the character of the people – virtues of self-reliance, self-direction, self-determination, altruistic concern for others, charitable care for others rather than government-mandated welfare programs, regulation and taxation – all the capacities that made this country great are being contaminated.
"We are being corrupted by these programs."

Rossiter said Obama has seduced Americans into believing he can deliver them from economic distress associated with the housing, banking and unemployment crises.

"He has a particular gift for rhetorical speech that's inspiring, seductive and inviting," he said. "He's a quite charming person in his manner. People have been looking for someone to rescue them, and Obama has presented himself as the hero of the day."

However, Rossiter predicts Obama's collectivist rescue plan will end in disaster.

"He's headed for a very severe fall because the expectations are far in excess of what anyone could possibly provide," he said. "We've reached the point where, not only can the economy not respond to the stimulus, we have an incredible amount of debt. The entire project is going to collapse, and he will be humiliated."

Human nature is not conducive to socialism, Rossiter warned. Imposition of a collectivist system and policies encouraging citizens to seek help through government intervention and social programs may prove to be a death blow to the nation's spirit and liberties.

"If you keep trying to do it, you are going to destroy the character of the people," he said. "You may be able to subjugate them and get them into this dependent state, but, ultimately, society collapses because it's conceptually flawed."

In his book, he reveals how the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

* creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
* satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
* augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
* rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

Obama's policies of promoting dependency are just part of a larger plan that goes far beyond economic "rescue," Rossiter claims. The administration is building a larger voting base.

"What Obama and the Democrats are doing is a profoundly political move to increase the numbers of voters by getting them on welfare so they will continue to vote Democratic," he said." Their immigration program is geared toward the same end – to provide legalization and benefits for illegal immigrants because they know 70 percent of those people voted Democratic."

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

This is an excellent article and I like how the author is very clear what Obama is up to and how even now the Democrats with Obama at the helm are working to get the rest of our country needy and living off the government thus creating more votes for their party as well.

Obama is the most dangerous man our country has ever had in power. I have noticed and this has happened slowly which is sad, but there are some that are finally speaking out about Obama. Using words now like socialist, socialism and how Obama is creating doing all he can to make America a socialist country. I heard the word socialist on Hanny last night many,many times, Not only from Hannity but from others on his show. That is a new turn now to hear them saying it out loud like we have done here at this blog.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Great article Chrissie! Your comments are dead on. The use of the the word Socialist is more prevalent. Should we now move on to the other “S” word? SECESSION!

In my Professional Military Education classes during the 1980's we studied Communism. After all, you need to know your enemy. One of the points made was that Communism CANNOT be obtained until Socialism is first achieved. Although the Soviet Union was called Communist, they had not obtained it yet because they had not achieved pure Socialism.

I believe Obama is trying to achieve what the Soviets weren't able to; pure Socialism

"The entire project is going to collapse, and he will be humiliated."

I, personally, will not be happy until I see him disgraced on national / world-wide television when they go in and get him and take him out in hand-cuffs, toss him in jail and destroy the only key to his cell.

Seriously. I do believe something is going to happen that it will all work out in the end. Laugh at me if you want, and I probably shouldn't be sharing this anywhere, with anyone [lest they believe I have a few loose screws] but I have a "gut feeling." I have had few - very few "gut feelings" in my lifetime and everyone one of them has been correct. [No. It isn't anything like knowing lottery numbers. It isn't ESP or anything crazy. I can only think of FOUR particular instances where I had "gut feelings." All four happened just like I knew they would. The first was when I met my now husband. I knew that I was going to marry him the night that I met him. He didn't know it. I did. We are still married. I knew the Christmas of 2002 that it would be my Grandmother's last Christmas. She passed away six weeks later. One of them actually had to do with our moving to Saudi Arabia - and where do we live? Saudi Arabia! And, finally, my last "gut feeling" happened in February of 2007 when I said goodbye to my Father and I knew that I would never see him again. Sadly he, too, passed away six weeks later.] So anyway, back to the "gut feeling." I just feel like something very, very sinister is going on. In the end, he will be caught and like The Wizard of Oz, the curtain will be lifted on this entire scam. I cannot articulate it any better. Like I said. Laugh at me if you want. But I can FEEL it!

His whole plan revolves around punishing the achievers, from small business to Wall street.
The question, why ? He wants to create more and more dependant people, who are solely dependant on government.

States will be rewarded for enlarging their Welfare roles.

Oh and I heard on Rush yesterday, that extra 13 dollars a week will be charged on next years tax return. Seems they rewrote the laws for this year to accomplish the 13 dollar per week rebate. But will be taxed next year. So it is nothing more than a 'c'mon get on my bandwagon', but you'll pay for it later.

Double dealing cheats is all they are.

See? I knew he was a sociopath from the getgo. He demands we hang on his every breath and listen to every word or he'll make us pay. But hell, he's going to make us pay anyway.
He has no friggin' clue what he's doing and Soros is the Master Puppeteer. Soros bought America and we let him do it. There's a revolution starting and I've chosen my side. I have seen way too many minorities out this way getting all pushy and nasty about how they have all the rights now and the big old whitey has none. They actually think this is going to keep us big bad white folks down? Think again! It just makes us mad when you poke us with a sharp stick. The timebomb is ticking down little by little and when we've had enough, something will explode and that will be all she wrote for this class of dummys and their doofus, village idiot leaders.

Great post Chrissie, I don't think of Socialism as anything less than Communism and their leaders as being Communists. The Communist Party of the USA can formally merge with the Democrat Party as their planks are indistinguishable, to call oneself partisan to either party is to identify as one of them. Democrats claim they are Democrats but really what are they if they go along and vote in lockstep along party lines for Communism. Same thing for the Republicans, they today can drop that charade of being different and merge from the split that set them apart in 1854, they are no longer the party of Lincoln, they are the party of Rockefeller and the UN. It's a two party system, Communist or Communist light, until we the people change that. The sorry son's of bitches won't even challenge the legitimacy of a Kenyan Marxist for president.
The one bright light is the fact that some of the congressional RINO's are panicked with that look in their eyes like that of the chickens when you enter their coop with a hatchet in hand, what do they fear? A revolt with mob rule. People are being aroused from their stupor, maybe it will take an insurrection, I hope not.
Look at the many riots in Los Angeles and see how much damage that was done before any riot control was brought in, the common theme there was a lack of intelligence and not on the part of the police. Picture that happening throughout the land in every city at the same time. I'm not advocating violence but... be prepared for it. People shouldn't fear their government, it should always be the other way around, the politicians have overstepped their bounds.

We are going so far left, so rapidly now. that I think that even a lot of moderates are going to start thinking conservatively. Obama seems to be in a big hurry to push his plans for socialism through. Of course he has Reid and Pelosi to help him. I think, or hope, that the leftist agenda will become so extreme that a lot of Congress will begin to block these plans. I may be wrong, I don't know.

If we go too far left, it may come to another revolution of some sort. If AG Holder can push his gun registration/banning agenda through, then it might be an armed revolution.

The stimulus package of Obama's is definitely a course of wealth redistribution. He referred to wealth redistribution numerous times in his two autobiographies and as a candidate for several offices. Obama's big spending policies are socialist. I think that after four years, a lot of us are going to be very upset to seee what has happened to the value of the dolar.

Before President Bush finished his term in office, my portfolio had dropped 20 percent from it's original high; what could be considered well within the normal limits of a fluctuating market. Since President Barack Obama took his oath (or should I call that oaf) of office, the value of my savings have dropped an additional 30 percent.

For the democrats, their new agenda is to destroy the fabric of society and let grow a new socialist paradise from its ashes. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack, they don't have to worry; they have their millions safely stashed away.

It's not enough that they control the executive office, the house and the Senate - they want to ensure future victories by tabling the new fairness doctrine.

It makes me sick to my heart to see what is happening.

Remember the guy at the county fair? Step right up and we will fleece you into submission. Snake oil salesman from hell, is one B.Hussein(shitstain) Obama.
Of course, maybe he found Merlin, so there is a way for all those dollars to appear. Not. The dollars will come from all of us. Standby for the congressional and presidential bunko.

Watched Omar Sharif in DR. ZHIVAGO a few days ago (1965 classic)... After WW I Yuri Zhivago, his wife, son and her father were eating dinner. She hocked a painting for their meat, and her father lit a cigar and said, "Comrades, I'm now going to smoke Moscow's last cigar... slowly!"

James M., good idea that would be great.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:33 PM

BobF.,. thank you so much, that is interesting. Your right that is just what Obama wants to do.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:35 PM

BT in SA, thank you for sharing about that, I love it! I agree BT in SA, I know it is horrible right now and it will get worse too. But America is going to show she is stronger then what they are trying to do, we only lost this election by 10 million votes.

Nicholas said the other day extremes like Obama is do not last. That it will all turn around again and the vast majority of Americans will fight back big time and take our country back.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:40 PM

Mark, thanks for the info. about the $13 Amazing.

I would love for the media to broadcast that. I bet a lot of people would wake up even a little would be a good start.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:43 PM

Lynn, exactly,you are so right.

And little by little I really believe this, people will realize just how bad he is. They will see he is wanting to destroy their lives as they have known them like how he tells people what to do, who to listen to, not to vacation in resorts like he has done, all things for control.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:48 PM

Jack, LOL perfect photo for what you said.

DITTO all you said and this... good one Yes.

"People shouldn't fear their government, it should always be the other way around, the politicians have overstepped their bounds."

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:50 PM

Tom, Yes and what you said about Holder. oh this is something good, last night on TV a couple of people were saying how Holder has got to go and two of the people saying it were democrats. I almost chocked on my diet coke. They are mad at him about the money and maybe next they will start to be mad at Obama too like they should be.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:53 PM

Harry, thank you for sharing how it has been for you. You are right it isn't enough for them to do what they have done so far they want to go after speech too and the Fairness Doctrine is a beginning.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 07:56 PM

Glenn Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RET, he sure is, good way to put it too.
