Obama in his own words: “Because I actually believe in redistribution….so everyone has a shot” #socialism


Tape from 1998 — Obama in his own words– “I  actually believe in redistribution”.

Straight from the Drudge Report today:

From YouTube page: “At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”

From the Daily Caller – pointing out that Obama’s message was to “trick” the public into redistribution:

“Amid public distrust, “the trick is, “How do we structure government systems  that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution? — because I  actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make to make  sure everybody has got a shot,” Obama told a Loyola University audience in  October 1998.”

So if Obama believes in redistribution, how come he never ran on that in the 2008 campaign?  He and his followers are absolutely appalled when you call him a socialist….which he is.

At least Romney has been truthful about those who take from government….most of it courtesy of Obama.  Obama can’t be truthful about what he believes because he wants to “trick” the people into things they wouldn’t want if they knew his real intentions….a socialist, downgraded America.

This video gets to the gist of why Obama must go.  His beliefs are anti-American and for 4 years he has tried to hide his true intentions by cloaking his policies in “blame Bush”, class warfare rhetoric.

Obama must go!

Did Hollywood “genius” Morgan Freeman see the Florida straw poll?

Just wondering…did Morgan Freeman, the Hollywood Whiz Kid*, happen to take a look at the Florida Straw Poll on Saturday?

Herman Cain, a black man, won that straw poll largely from the support of the Tea Party.

Morgan Freeman said on CNN last week that members of the Tea Party are racists willing to do  whatever they can to “get this black man” (Obama) out of the White House.

The only racist I see is Morgan Freeman…..

Herman Cain responds:

“Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Partiers about having a racist  element, they have never been to a Tea Party………Name calling is something that is going to continue in this because they don’t  know how to stop this movement and this movement is making a big difference in  politics.”

Amen!  Freeman is right about one thing….the Tea Party wants the President out of the White House.

Not because of his race, but rather based on:

So, Mr. Freeman, race is not the issue as proven in Florida….but for some reason it is an issue with you and many like you.

Why don’t you attend a Tea Party (as Herman Cain suggests) before spreading your nastiness?…and then….well….

Get. Over. It.

Quote of the day


I found this quote by commenter at RedState.  I had never heard this one before.  Like it!

They say Republicans are for the rich, Democrats are for the poor.
If they need more voters, then they have to make more of who they are for.

Think about it…

NO COMPROMISE, GOP: 33% of Democrats in newly elected House caucus as Socialists Progressives


Back in August, Gateway Pundit posted about the 70+ Congressional members who he claimed caucus as American Socialists….all of them Democrats (of course).  However, with further review, it appears the linked information is actually a list of  members of the Democratic Progressive Caucus.  The list includes the 76 members of the 111th Congress in the caucus.

Now, while the list doesn’t say Socialists, I think a huge argument could be made that most, if not all of these members of the caucus, have socialist leanings.  After all, here are the views of the caucus:

…organized around the principles of social and economic justice, a non-discriminatory society, and national priorities which represent the interests of all people, not just the wealthy and powerful

One view of Socialism, found at Wiki:

Socialists generally share the view that capitalism concentrates power and wealth within a small segment of society that controls the means of production and derives its wealth through a system of exploitation. This creates a stratified society based on unequal social relations that fails to provide equal opportunities for every individual to maximize their potential,[14] and does not utilise available technology and resources to their maximum potential in the interests of the public[15], and focuses on satisfying market-induced wants as opposed to human needs. Socialists argue that socialism would allow for wealth to be distributed based on how much one contributes to society, as opposed to how much capital one holds.

Social and Economic Justice=Redistribution.  References to the wealthy and powerful are typical class warfare strategies.  Besides, the 111th Congress that was just thrown out on its ear has been the most Leftist and Socialist in our history.

Progressive is Socialism by another name.  So now that we have established that…..

I thought it would be interesting to see how many of these listed Socialists “Progressives” were re-elected on November 2.

Of the 76 “admitted” Socialists “Progressives” in the last Congress, a whopping 64 Socialists “Progressives” were re-elected in the House last Tuesday.
And most all of those were by a wide margin.

Only 3 of those Socialists “Progressives” who ran lost their elections.  Nine of these Socialists “Progressives” either didn’t run again, won other offices, or are no longer in the Congress for other reasons. 

Politico.com currently has the latest numbers for Democrats in the new House at 196.  

 Of all Democrats in the newly elected House, 33% of them caucus as Socialists “Progressives”. And that doesn’t include the Democrats who have yet to admit their Socialist “Progressive” leanings because it is not popular in most areas of the country.

I thought this analysis was interesting because despite the red wave on Tuesday, our country has several pockets where the majority of citizens are just fine with a Socialist “Progressive” representing their views in Congress. We know this because they re-elected them.

This tells me that the Republicans who were elected in a big wave majority had better stick to Constitutional Conservatism.   That is what the red wave was all about on Tuesday.  That wave resulted in a Republican majority in the House, 30+ governorships in the hands of Republicans, and multitudes of State legislatures now run by Republicans.

The red wave represents the vast majority of Americans who are speaking very loudly AGAINST the Socialist “Progressive” policies of the Obama administration and the Democratic-led Congress.  We’ve spoken and we want our Constitution to be followed.

Constitutional Conservatism is the moderate/centrist position in this country.  After all, the principles of the Constitution and the intentions of our Founders can only be considered as the average or center view of how this country should be operating.    Nothing else is a centrist view.   

It pains me to hear pundits/leaders/Obama and others talk about this clear voter correction on Tuesday consists of radicals who are reacting to “fear” or who “don’t understand” what good has been done. 

Sorry, but we do understand.  OUR position is moderate and we are pulling this country back from the Leftist radical abyss we’ve been swimming since Obama and Dems began their “rule” by implementing policies against the will of the people.

Constitutional Conservatism means closing the borders and fostering ONLY legal immigration; drastically reducing the size of government; halting current spending levels and substantially rolling them back; implement a plan for reversing the $15 Trillion debt our Federal government has generated; it means honoring state sovereignty; rolling back the federal control of our education system; providing the necessary resources for the defense of our country; free markets;  free-market healthcare; and much more.

These views ARE Constitutional and THE moderate position in this country.

Socialism “Progressivism” is not moderate…it is radical.  33% of Democrats in Congress are clearly radicals.  

NOTE TO REPUBLICANS:   There must be no compromise with Obama and the Democrats.  They are the radicals.  The American people who ushered in this red wave are the moderates.  Most of these Democrats may represent the radicals in their districts, but they do not represent the Constitution nor the principles of a free, limited government.  We want Constitutional Conservatism.  There is no compromising those principles. 

Constitution Alienation Syndrome (CAS)


Recently I was reviewing some information on a phenomenon called Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS).  I am close to someone who has been the parent-victim of PAS so I was interested in reviewing it again for a refresher.

As I was reading the information anew, it occurred to me that just as some parents alienate their children from the other parent for no valid reasons in divorce situations; we have an analogous situation in this country where a “ruling-class” is working overtime to alienate the American people from their country’s founding principles and the Constitution.

Therefore, I have created a new phenomenon dubbed Constitution Alienation Syndrome or CAS.

I wish to compare CAS to PAS since the two comprise a striking analogy in many ways.  After all, the father is a solid foundation in a child’s life, just as the Constitution is the foundation of our country.

To begin the comparison and to outline what I dub as CAS, perhaps it is first beneficial to describe Parental Alienation Syndrome or PAS.

From Women’s Divorce.com, PAS is summarized as:

Parental alienation syndrome (or PAS for short) occurs when one parent isolates and turns their child against the other parent.  Through verbal and mental manipulation, the child is molded into believing that the other parent is the cause of all their problems, and that the parent never really loved them.

Unfortunately, the child begins to believe what is being said about the other parent and starts to pull away, often to the bewilderment of the alienated parent.

If we take the analogy of PAS and apply it to today’s ruling-class elites , the American People and the Constitution, a summary of CAS would look something like this.

Constitution Alienation Syndrome (CAS) occurs when the ruling-class elitists, usually, but not always, of the Democratic Party persuasion, work to isolate, or separate, the American people from the founding principles and Constitution of this great country, all in an effort to change the Constitutional Republic into something unrecognizable by our principled Founding Fathers.

Through political and media-based manipulation, some Americans are molded into believing that corporations, static morality and tradition, and rigid Constitutional principles are the causes of all of their problems, and that their country has never established anything of value for them.  They are lied to, brainwashed, showered with governmental dependency, and even become part of the effort to “change” America.

Unfortunately, some Americans begin to believe the lies about their country.  They start to pull away from America’s principles and traditions with increased ignorance as to the basis for their freedoms, the uniqueness and decency of our country, and the exceptionalism that has been produced over the last 200-plus years.   This occurs at the expense of our freedoms, as a danger to our Constitutional Republic, and often to the bewilderment of other America-loving citizens.

Broadly in CAS, the ruling-class elitists, Socialists, and corrupt politicians are the equivalent of the parent in PAS who actively and deceptively alienates the child from the other parent.    The PAS parent creates a situation where the child becomes harmfully dependent upon the alienating parent and even creates a scenario where the child becomes an alienator himself.

In CAS, the American people are being taught to despise this country and become dangerously dependent upon the ruling class for their needs.   The principles of CAS are analogous to the brain-washed child that is taught to hate his other parent while completely depending upon the other.

The Constitution, American traditions, free markets and the American Way of Life is being dragged through the proverbial mud, very much like the alienated parent.  In other words, the upstanding, decent entity is abused and eventually hated through a series of lies, brainwashing and outright selfish behavior.

For this purpose it is important to emphasize that, just as there is no abuse or alienation actually occurring with the alienated parent victim in PAS, in CAS the Constitution, nor American values, can be accurately designated as the cause of problems for many Americans.  While the innocent alienated parent and the Constitution are not perfect, they are both upstanding and PROVEN models for the family and the country, respectively.

Put another way….the alienated parent in PAS and the Constitution/American values in CAS are being unjustifiably attacked for the selfish purposes of those in control.

But why do they do it?  What drives their behavior?  Similar to asking why a mother would choose to alienate a child from his father (for example*), what actually drives the behavior of the leaders, political groups, and general “ruling-class” as they work to separate American Citizens from their Constitution and values?

The answer may partially lie in what one PAS website cites as the basis for why the alienating mother wishes to separate her son from his father.  As you read these traits, see if you think that this diagnosis  might also describe the traits of our current ruling-class elites – those currently in power, especially.

The parent may be diagnosed as narcissistic (self-centered), where they presume that they have a special entitlement to whatever they want. They think that there are rules in life, but only for other people, not for them.

Also, they may be called a sociopath, which means a person who has no moral conscience. These are people who are unable to have empathy or compassion for others. They are unable to see a situation from another person’s point of view, especially their child’s point of view. They don’t distinguish between telling the truth and lying in the way that others do.

So we have a case where the alienators believe there are rules in life, but they don’t have to follow them.

Sound familiar?

Alienators have no moral conscience, empathy, or true compassion for others.  It’s all theater.   They don’t see nor care about another’s views….but they will PRETEND that they do.

They have trouble telling the truth, and more importantly distinguishing lies from the truth.

In PAS, the mindset described is dangerous for the healthy development of the child and his relationships, including his mental growth.  In addition, the probability of these traits passing through generations is high, according to experts.

Parental alienation is a perpetual beast.

But more important to this post, it is quite arguable that these exact same traits of narcissism and socio-pathological behavior are rampant in the current leadership of our country.  It is a dangerous mindset, particularly when those who possess it have full political power.      The borderline sociopaths running/ruling this country are extremely detrimental to the ongoing relationship that Americans have with their government and their Constitution.  And, unfortunately, just as in PAS, this CAS mindset has been passed down for generations — through our schools, state and local governments, media, TV, laws, and more.

And, unless this alienation is neutered, that generational effect of a dumbed-down citizenry, anti-American values, Socialism, and a shredded Constitution will continue in a death spiral for our country.

Constitutional Alienation is a perpetual beast if regularly fed.  Why do we keep feeding the beast?

In PAS, years of alienation result in the boy’s behavior toward the alienated father as one of denigration, anger, hate, and arrogant sureness.  It can include exaggerated stories that are untrue and spreading of animosity toward the father’s family.  All of this occurs while the child feels guiltless and possesses an unhealthy need to protect the alienating parent.  In most cases after years of alienation abuse, the now older child, will have nothing to do with the alienated parent.

Similarly, in CAS, many years of separating the Constitution, the founding principles, and American values from the American people has resulted in some astounding and disturbing trends in our country:

You get the picture.  Our Constitution-trashing ruling class has worked for decades to force a leftist agenda on this country.  It is inarguable that our Founding Fathers were at the opposite belief and political spectrum as our current leaders.  A shift from the rule of law, from the principles of our Constitution and traditional values/morality is alienating our country day-by-day from its intended destiny.

Our current leadership behaves just as that alienating parent—-isolation through misinformation, alienation through division, and putting to use deceptive tactics toward a selfish end.

The result of this alienation onslaught, however is where I see a difference, between PAS and CAS.

In PAS, if it continues, professionals believe that, in most instances, the son alienated from his father may never reconcile.  The hope of reconciliation is always there and at least a small chance still exists of that occurring.  However, apart from the alienator removing the mask or the occurrence of some sort of intervention, the alienation will likely be permanent.

In CAS, if alienation continues, the country will slowly be changed forever away from its Constitution.  We have witnessed a steady assault on our freedoms, rule of law, and Constitution for the better part of the last century.

However, in the last two years with our current leaders, the “compassion and caring” mask of our alienators has come off…and the true anti-American agenda has been revealed for all Americans to see.

Unlike the alienating mother in PAS who has held all of the cards for years but has never had to show her true hand, in CAS, the “alienating” leaders of our country have more than shown their true hand over the last two years.

We have had the distinct opportunity to witness a major overreach in our leaders’ efforts to separate this country and its people from their Constitution and their values.

A funny thing happened on the way to 2010, the sleeping giant has been awakened by this leftist onslaught and, God-willing, the “alienators” are about to be introduced to JAS – Job Alienation Syndrome.

The election next week is our chance to put these America-loathing Congressional members out of a job.  Hopefully, in 2012, we remove the America-Loather-In-Chief from office.  But first things first.

We can no longer allow for the American people to be secretly (and sometimes openly) further separated from their country’s founding and its Constitution.

The task is overwhelming, no doubt – solving the debt problem, grossly cutting spending, grappling with growing terrorism threat, producing a business-friendly regulatory environment, gutting Obama’s socialist policies, repealing Obamacare, getting the federal government out of Education, rebuilding our defenses, rebuilding the Obama-tarnished relationships with our allies, closing the borders, enforcing our immigration laws, overhauling our voting system to reduce the rampant fraud and more.

Boot out the alienators…..its time they received their just rewards.

November 2 is just a start, but it is the day that we begin to make Constitution Alienation Syndrome a thing of the past.

* For purposes of this post and for less clinical descriptions, I will often refer to the alienating parent as the mother and the alienated parent-victim as father.  Sometimes the child is also referred to as son.

Home Depot CEO: The King Needs To Cloak Himself & Go Out Among The Peasants


Via Tea Party Patriots, Founder of Home Depot tells Obama to go out and understand why he is not liked!

Spot on!  Of course, Obama The Great will never do it because I don’t really believe he cares.

Thought for the day — courtesy of Ayn Rand


I am reading through the classic novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.  Along the way, I have dog-eared the pages containing thoughts that apply to today’s situation.  Here is one of many that I marked: 

“There was a time when men believed that ‘the good’ was a concept to be defined by a code of moral values and that no man had the right to seek his good through the violation of the rights of another. If it is now believed that my fellow men may sacrifice me in any manner they please for the sake of whatever they deem to be their OWN good, if they believe that they may seize my property simply because they need it–well, so does any burglar. There is only this difference: the burglar does not ask me to sanction his act.”         

 — fictional character Hank Rearden from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged

 
Just think about that.  Ayn Rand was ahead of her time. 

By what right does any American, particularly Barack Obama and our leadership, in general, have to say it is their policy “to spread the wealth around”?   

 Charity is one thing, theft of property/wealth in the name of “the good” is completely another.
