Instead of trying to make the poor, rich, we’re hell-bent on trying to make the rich, poor. Obama has stated publicly that he “wants to spread the wealth around”. That’s right out of the Karl Marx playbook. If the Obama Administration gets to “transform” our society and economic system, under those precepts, we will be on the road to social and economic ruin. The signs are all around us, the government is taking over the banks and other financial institutions, they have gotten an ownership stake in two of our largest auto companies, and it is trying to take over 1/6 of our economy by instituting government-run health care, and, in addition, they are trying to stifle dissent by trashing and belittling Fox News, and by talking of re-instituting the “Fairness Doctrine”, which is a direct assault on the First Amendment of the Constitution.

What makes everything so confusing is that Obama says all the right things in his eloquent, tele-prompter delivered speeches, but it is in his actions that contradict what he says. He sends mixed messages to the people – telling them what they want to hear, but surreptitiously doing the opposite behind closed doors and our backs.

Why wouldn’t or couldn’t he make the life and death decision to deploy additional troops in Afghanistan, like his hand-picked 4-Star general advised, in a reasonable time frame? He seems to have a mental block when it comes to making important decisions. This trait goes back to the time he was a legislator when he voted “present” over 130 times. Whether that was done for political reasons doesn’t matter, by procrastinating and equivocating when he faces important decisions, that is not the mark of a dynamic, forceful leader. He is in over his head and he doesn’t realize it because of his inflated ego, and he is caught up in the trappings of the office of the president and not its responsibilities.

Slowly but surely you see many of his early supporters getting an advanced case of “buyer’s remorse”, but it may be too late to reverse the damage that his policies might or will cause to undermine the principles that has made the United States the pre-eminent country of the world.

Look at the gaggle of radical people that he has surrounded himself with. From Van Jones to Anita Dunn to Cass Sunstein to Mark Lloyd to Kevin Jennings to Carol Browner, and his flunkeys from Chicago like Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett etal. Some are admitted communists and socialists and some are just Chicago-style politicians. Whatever they are called, it is scary, to say the least. When others criticize him or members of his administration, they immediately become eligible to be included on his “enemies list” and the vitriol that that designation will entail. All this is done with a smile and speeches full of empty platitudes of what a great country we have. Many people can’t see these telltale signs of oppressive behavior, because of their liberal ideology that blinds them to the facts. The word “racist” is thrown about by his most ardent supporters in describing his detractors. It is not the color of his skin that is the problem; it is how “thin” it is.

If we can’t overcome this “class warfare” maneuver on the part of the Obama Administration, we will be susceptible to becoming a third world country without us even realizing it. Beware of wolves dressed up in sheep’s clothing.

Why do liberals always seem to want to punish the successful people? Do they somehow have some sort of a guilt complex? I'd bet most of those liberal phonies would raise holy hell if it was they who were being targeted and over taxed. I guess it depeds on whose ox is being gored.

To get a better understanding of how the liberal-statist mind works, I'd like to recommend two excellent books on the subject:
Mark Levin's Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto and Architects of Ruin by Peter Schweizer. If we want to take Congress back in 2010 we need to understand the mindset of our liberal opponents.
