Those saying that Obama and his buddies are Socialists have vastly miscalculated this assumption. What’s really happening is Obama is fascist and not strictly socialist. Obama understands and knows the power that can come from a fascist state without the people really knowing what is going on. After all, the fascists of the past knew what he knows, and frankly, what his mentors knew (Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers, etc.). For example, Adolf Hitler once said, “The great masses of the people… will more easily fall victims to a great lie than to a small one” and “what luck for rulers that men do not think”. Now I’m not saying Obama is a genocidal maniac, I am saying his political methods are similar. Another fascist, Vladimire Lenin, once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” Now, politicians have never been known for their honesty, nevertheless, I have never seen such a large group of them openly and without effort to disguise, lie over and over and simply say what people want to hear at the time to make them feel good. These lies have resulted in them becoming loved, almost adored, by those too ignorant or star struck to even bother to see the lies for what they are.
These star struck idiots would rather allow these fascists to take away their freedoms and rights just because their speeches make them feel good. This reminds me of something Hitler once said, “A lie, told often enough, becomes the truth…”
You see, where Communist Socialism requires exclusive government control of all means of commerce and business, including wages and the control of private ownership, Fascist Socialism or “Fascism” achieves the same results without the overhead. Instead of the government controlling everything like socialism requires, all fascism requires is to have government control of banks and the largest corporations. This gives them indirect control over everything else through extortionary means. If you own a company and need a loan, but don’t want to run the business according to the government’s ideas and sell the products they want you to sell, then you don’t get the loan. Don’t need a loan? Well, if you don’t sell what they want you to, then they just raise your taxes so high that your only choice is to do what they say.
A fascist uses the art of distraction to gain power quickly. What they do is create a crisis, either a real crisis, or just one they think up. After this crisis becomes bad enough, they come forward offering to “fix” it and proceed to blame it on the rich and successful. They use class envy as a weapon, and as such conveniently shift the focus of how the crisis really happened and thus a lie told often enough becomes the truth. This works especially well with charismatic speaker that has the talen to charm the very stupid to the seemingly intelligent.
Once again, Adolf Hitler used this technique quite well. His Nazi brown shirts would cause trouble and maheim, the legislature would give him more powers to “fix” the problem, he used this power to take over large companies and banks, he’d then give “inspiring and emotion grabbing” speeches thousands would attend. He was called “the saviour of Germany”, yet, most of the problems that were happening were a direct result of his actions and the actions of his brown shirts. People loved him because he preached that he would take care of them. He would punish those that were wealthy. He would “fix” education. What he did was indoctrinate children, not educate them. People would cry, get goose bumps, act as if they were listening to their favorite movie star. He would openly tell lies just to say what the people wanted to hear. It didn’t matter if it was a lie, the people, being star struck believed him. It became “the truth” to them.
Hitler intended for Germany to be torn apart. This allowed him to build in his image of savior, which was actually quite successful for him. This SAME techique is what Obama is doing, and like Germany of old, the legislature is willing to do his bidding, no matter what it is. The “crisis” is the excuse. The very congressmen that angirly shake their fists and fling spit all over the place are the very weasels that caused the crisis in the first place! That doesn’t matter to the Obama fan, because Obama is going to fix everything. This is very dangerous.
There is a reason why thousands gave their lives willingly and freely in the Revolutionary war. It was simply for the liberty and freedom to live their lives as THEY chose to live them, and not what a bunch of bloated bureaucrats in government dictates. These idiots in Washington, including Obama, have never ever lived a life outside of the protective bubble of politics or a university. Barney Frank has never ran a business, tried to keep a payroll and pay ridiculous taxes and still have something left for himself. He doesn’t know what it’s like to earn a living, not have it given to you because some lobbyist made you a sweet deal for special consideration. With a small few exceptions, none of these idiots in government have any clue how the economy works, how everything is connected. They don’t understand that liberty and entrepreneurism is what made this nation great. It’s what raised the standard of living in the entire world and even this country. Our “poor” have cell phones and TV’s because of this as well. This can be directly linked with the American system.
Obama is bound and determined to destroy the current economic system. That is plain to see through all of his lies. He intends to have a fascist oligarchy that answers to a world body and not to the people. It’s all about power to a small elite group, because you’re too stupid to take care of yourself.
It’s all a game, a grand illusion. The march to fascism started with Woodrow Wilson, got a boost with FDR slowly but surely over the years it gained momentum, from Johnson to Carter and finally Obama. When more an more people realize what is happening to their liberties and freedoms, they, hopefully, will finally wake up.
This isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. This is an American issue. The idea that Europe has a better way is a vastly flawed idea. History has shown that the way Europe operates always ends with the loss of liberty and development. Stagnation and frustration are the result. Since when has a government lasted longer than 50 years in that region for the past 300 years? Since when has that government shown progress and development for the human standard of living even remotely like the USA has done in 200+ years?
The “Republican” (not Republican party) form of government has the only historical evidence to show that it is the most successful, the best for the human spirit and lifestyle, and the best for the world around than any other form of government ever. When Rome was a true Republic it was the most magnificent of societies. When it started to deteriorate and they created “entitlements” for people (sound familiar?) people got lazy and started expecting more from the government. It deteriorated into a (mob) democracy, which eventually needed a “saviour” to turn it into a oligarchy or dictatorship with the reign of the emperors. That was the beginning of the end for Rome. The people gave up their prosperity and freedom for handouts and “security”. They lost it all.
Socialism, for every country that has tried it, has shown to destroy inventiveness and the incentive to make things better. The promise of “equality” in class is a lie. It only succeeded in eliminating the rich and making everyone poor except party members. Cuba is an exccellent example of this everyone is poor and there’s no incentive to make things better. What was once the largest producer of Sugar in the world suddenly became a nation that has a sugar shortage, and any sugar they produce (very little) is exported and not used by the people.
Socialism, much like the Europe of today, has shown much like Communism, it doesn’t inspire entrpreneurship and the improvement of the nation as a whole. Things stagnate because those with ideas get punished for them and anything they gain for their ideas is distributed to those too lazy to work for themselves. After all, why work hard if the government is going to take care of you. Because everyone starts to be content and lazy, the government remains as it is and their economy doesn’t grow because of it.
Remember, people that ignore history are destined to repeat it. What you see happening right now has happened many many times before. Socialism isn’t new, its a proven failure. Fascism isn’t new, it just ends up in an oligarchy and the misery of the people. Communism only results in equal poverty and the misery of the people. The only system that has ever shown success in history is thus:
- A benevolent monarchy that gave the rules of law and allowed the people to live in liberty and without interference. This is very rare, because absolute power corrupts absolutely. Having a good monarch does not guarantee the next will be, in fact it’s usually the opposite to be the case. Thus this is far too risky.
- A republic, which gives a set of laws and allows the people to live in liberty and without government interference. There are just enough laws to hold back anharchy and to preserve the rights and property of the individual. Yes, the INDIVIDUAL, not the group. This is the form of government people died for.
The idea that government solves all problems is a dumb and misinformed idea. A big government only brings misery and a loss of personal liberties. Governement is only there to provide for a common defense, to only PROMOTE (not provide) the general welfare, in other words ENCOURAGE commerce, not stifle or regulate it. Government is there to PRESERVE LIBERTY not only for us, but our children. This is not what Obama and the Congress is doing. They are violating our highest law, the Constitution, and with hypocrasy demand we obey theirs and trust them.
This march to fascism will be tested when enough people have come to the realization that they have lost their liberties to a bunch of tyrants that say what people want to hear.
The only problem our founding fathers did not address, was a provision in the Constitution for the government to fear the people, other than the second amendment.
