Barack Obama, when he began his campaign, seemed like a naive liberal with a beguiling smile. When I heard his opinions, he came out clearly like a left populist very familiar to people born in former third world countries. As I looked more closely, I saw increasingly alarming signs. His oratory sounded more and more like demagogy. The cheering crowds in the background hinted a growing personality cult building up. Then, when he started accumulating votes in the primary in caucus states, I suspected a person working on underhanded deals while he was preaching change.
Then came the flimsy lies. He had not heard the inflammatory speeches in all the twenty years he attended Rev Jeremiah Wright's church. Anyone with any degree of familiarity with the liberal left in the USA could have recognized the familiar anti-American rage that is the sum total of the world view of this creed. Obama with his record as a left wing community organizer was in his church to be with his political brethern.
Then he dressed up his redistribution program as a tax cut. The definition of the rich has started to decline from $250,000 to $120,000 as Governor Richardson announced today. What is more alarming is that he is willing to raise taxes on capital gains even if the revenues decline. Just to be fair!
Now it is getting creepy. Punish those who dare to question him. An anchor asked Joe Biden a question about the similarity between Karl Marx's famous quote "from each according to his ability and to each according to his need" and his redistributive program and was slammed with a ban on any appearances. The trade unions will lose their right to a secret ballot and will be lorded over by the union bosses.
The chilling finale is Obama's willingness to even change the constitution to bring about redistributive justice. He is not just the pinko left in democratic countries but a communist in the closet. We have heard the lies and now the outlines of a diabolic plan are emerging. This is the way communists always worked. They collaborated with proponents of liberal democracy to oust monarchies and then stabbed their former partners in the back to launch a coup d'état. Americans will make a big mistake to vote for this stealth mode abomination.
