For those that still hold out hope that our Community Organizer President will turn out to be something different than most of us knew he would be here is an interesting article, Anatomy of a Failed Presidency.

There are many here who continue to believe the words of this empty suit and ignore the results being generated. All these intellectual elites trying to implement social and economic change in this country with principles taken out of a textbook prove daily how totally unqualified and out of touch they are with the basic economic principles that made this country great.

Many here buy into that social and economic engineering yet ignore human behavior and those basic economic principles of free enterprise, capitalism, and individual wealth creation. Those that still hold out hope for that Hope and Change message leading to improved economic conditions sooner or later are going to come to the realization that message is leading to greater dependence, greater debt, and larger govt. Better wake up, Obama supporters.

Anatomy of a failed premise: We're not becoming socialist, and Obama isn't a socialist. So, stupid letter 169,245 is no better than other 169,244 stupid letters.

Sorry.

;)

I guess you missed the take over of healthcare, GM, Chrysler, the attempts to take over the Financial Sector... and wait till they Regulate Life with the CO2 stuff.

But nah, that **** ain't Socialist, it's all freedom and liberty at it's best!!

From:Socialism | Define Socialism at Dictionary.com
[Socialism:] a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

Now lets disect this:
"that advocates the vesting of ownership and control of the means of production..."
Means of production= the auto makers, health care providers, banks

"in the community as a whole."
community= government

by definition we may not have reached socialism, but it sounds as if we are moving that way.



The biggest problem with many liberal views is that they believe socialism is always viewed as bad (and in the above cases, IT IS!). They're the first to deny in horror that we are moving toward socialism. I'd like to point out, however, that the public school system is socialised. It's funded by the tax payers and controlled by the government (elected by the people). I think there definitely needs to be some modification to the public school system, but I also wouldn't want it gone.
