Since so many people take such strong exception to any claim that Obama is a Marxist or a Socialist,
That's because he's not. He's right of centre, about as Socialist as the Thatch.
It is easy to point at black people and say they lack intelligence or ambition, and that is the reason Mr. Obama is failing... He is failing because he is not pushing the change necessary for this country which would mean rebirth, reform, or revolution... He lacks vision; but only because he shares the common form and formula the rich have for success; meaning, more of capitalism... Putting capital on life supports can no longer be afforded... When we work we have to give them profit, and when we sleep we have to hand over our tax money and future tax money to them... You cannot prime the pump any longer... If you could get capitalism up and running it would only drain more capital out of the middle classes and make more poor out of them... The parasite has grown larger than the host, taking all we have, all government and the people have to give, and is still asking for more... Obama is not as socialist... He does not understand one part of economy... He does as people who believe capitalism can be saved tell him to do, but capitalism is killing America, killing this people, and destroying the government...
The people cannot save the economy, and should not be asked to; and the government is beyond hope; but the people should save themselves, and they will not be able to short of taking responsibility for themselves and their own affairs... If they are used to the government taking care of the old, they better make other plans... If they are used to the government looking out for the young, they better make other plans... The republicans make no secret of wanting to get the federal government out of education which means the whole system will fall backwards a hundred years in a heartbeat... Take care of your own education... Don't count on government for anything, but don't give to government anything you don't absolutely have to...The government serves the enemy, but only let them look out for the common man and they are instantly called socialists...
Obama shares a situation with the man who complained that he had painted pictures for twenty years and no one had called him an artist; but he only polished one knob, and everyone called him a knob polisher... If you get my metaphore... Obama has done nothing for the working class... He has tried to revive capitalism for the rich, but the expected benefits of capital are hundreds of years over due, and will never arrive for humanity... The economy should feed everyone... Why should the whole government go broke feeding capitalism???
