I read a post from this guy on another forum and it makes a lot of sense. Obama, in essence, really is a communist and communism, as we know, has been tried many times in the past and failed miserably. McCain is a better choice at this point (not the best person for the job but the better choice.) He's even too socialist. But [i]less[i] socialist. I've provided the guy's post and the link to the other forum below if anyone's interested.
"30 years ago, in the face of a growing population the democrats decided that:
1. Stop Oil companies from drilling
2. Prevent the expansion of refining capacities to deal with the growing population.
3. Prevent the expansion of coal resources for the generation of electricity.
4. Prevent the expanision of nuclear power for the generation of electricity.
Obama's solution to the predictable crisis now upon us is
1. Nationalize the Oil Industry even though government can't establish it can walk and chew gum on the best of days. This is the irradication of any right to personally owned property. 100% Communist.
2. Windfall profits tax. Remove any profit from the oil industry and any incentive to produce anything. This doesn't put one drop of oil on the table and removes incentive to do so. It does, however, give any money to the government (to be used for buying more votes from a public willing to sell them).
Note. the last windfall profits tax in the 80's was an 80% tax. As there was no profit in pumping - these wells were shut down( or output reduced) and resulted in LESS oil going to market.
Only in a communist scenario are people expected to work and produce for free.
In the 70's - the railroad industry was so over burdened with federal regulation - they decided to go out of business when it came to passenger traffic. The government nationalized the railroads and created Amtrak which has NEVER run at a profit and service levels reduced from what they had been under private, incentive based control.
Obama is a communist and those who are willing to vote skin will never see past that point. Such people are bigots and they will vote their bigotries. Martin Luther King, on the other hand, set the standard of judging based on character. On such a yardstick, Obama fails anytest. He is anti-american, anti-captitalism, anti-white, and anti-business. While the left moans about business, they also neglect to advise that every dime of tax revenue comes only from one source - commerce! No commerce, no jobs, and no tax base.
There is an old writing from after WWII. I'll paraphrase.
They came for the Jews but I was not Jewish so I said nothing.
Then they came for the Gypsies and the infirm, but I was neither and said nothing.
Then they came for priests, nuns and minsters, but I wasn't one and said nothing.
Then they came for me and I cried out for help - but there was no one left.
Once you decide to take away the property rights of one group, it is only a matter of time before they get to you and only an idiot with no understanding of history will believe otherwise.
The nation survived the social Clinton. It can survive the Marxist McCain IT CAN NOT SURVIVE A COMMUNIST.
My dentist is a nice fellow and a confirmed democrat. I pointed out to him that in all ways he lives a conservative life. So why do you vote left? He told me that when he needed a student loan (he's not white) the goverment gave him one and he felt that such things should be done for the people.
I pointed out to him that the government did NOTHING for him.
They did it for themselves. The cost of his loan as the principle and interest (which he did repay) AND HALF OF HIS INCOME FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
That income is higher than it would have been if he didn't have an education. They did nothing 'good' for him, they made an investment in the future tax base. ie - they did it for themselves.
Incidentally, he's an excellent dentist and a good man who performs pro bono work for those who can't afford it. He does this for his fellow man whereas the government did nothing.
In a socialized sitution (like england) dentistry means pulling the tooth - not repairing it.
Every place on this planet where socialism and/or communism, has been tried - it failed and ultimately it is the people who suffer because of it." http://caligastia.proboards92.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=dis
