You know there’s trouble on the horizon when leaders of formerly Communist countries are warning Americans about the dangers of redistribution, taxation and the centralization of monetary and economic policy.

 

He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.

 

How shrewd he is in America.

 

His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.

 

Reading Putin’s speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:

 

“…we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.

 

The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.

 

There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.

 

Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt – are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

 

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy.

 

That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”

There should be no question as to whether President Obama is a Socialist.

 

But socialism is just the appetizer; Communism is the main course.

 

His rhetoric, and more importantly his actions, have left no doubt that his personal ideologies are rooted within a concept that has been vehemently rejected by Americans throughout our nation’s history:

 

Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen!”
Karl Marx (1875)

 

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

 


 

 

 

 

 

It’s an idea spread by the socialist movements of the mid 1800′s and made popular by economic and political philosopher Karl Marx, and one that has arguably been responsible for the imprisonment and death of over 200 million people throughout the 20th century.

 

By all accounts, the ideas of Marx fundamentally transformed the face of the planet – and not necessarily for the betterment of society. If anything, his ideas have led to less personal liberty and more State control over every aspect of the peoples’ lives.

 

Despite its failures, however, there are many who, perhaps unwittingly, still support Communism’s core principles.

 

In fact, at least 60 million Americans (51%) support such left-leaning socialist/communist policies, as evidenced by our last Presidential election. To them, there exists a Utopia where the rich, wealthy and those deemed “more fortunate” can be pillaged to create equality for all.

 

But like all illusions, and regardless of President Obama’s best efforts to create a perfect society, State control over food, housing, technology, travel and the general economy will end in complete and utter failure.

 

We need look only at the Soviet Union to understand what the end result will be.

 

President Obama wants to fundamentally transform the United States of America. He and the rest of our elected officials are doing their damnedest to make that happen.

 

What should scare us all is that there’s a strong possibility, given the current economic, social and political climate in this country, that they will be successful in their attempts to do so.

Ironic isn't it ? Russia setting a shining example as the US accelerates towards the canyon floor ( not the fiscal cliff ), as Jim Willie accurately describes it. I can recall my father telling me many years ago that the " restoration " would come from Russia. Although, should you look at the enormous suffering that the Russian People endured during the 20th century, it makes perfect sense. They know and understand the causal factors that attribute to the abject misery of a population - and they have no desire to go there again ! Putin is for Russia what Ron Paul could have been for America. I only wish Russia was not so bloody cold !
