To the literal mountains of evidence which prove Obama is a Socialist and a Communist, we add this condemning statement that fell from his lips in a 1988 conference held at Loyola University. Barack Obama spoke against the "propaganda" of the idea that bigger government involvement in our lives doesn't work and the need to "pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution." Yes, Obama actually said that.
So, Romney is condemned for speaking the truth: "47 percent of (Americans)... are dependent upon government." Mainstream media, once again, perpetuates the wildly false narrative of Romney being "out of touch" or the "heartless rich guy," yet, Obama's Socialist agenda is burned into the microphone in 1988 and there's no coverage at all. If you missed the never before told stories, which attest to Romney's beyond-reproach character, please watch them so you know how off-point, and frankly criminal, Obama's attempts to demonize Romney really are. Thank the Lord for giving us YouTube, which might be the only way we will hear of Obama's Socialist intentions:
PS, for any skeptics, the Obama Campaign has confirmed Obama said this.
"There is no sin greater in a presidential race than telling the truth. Romney is being excoriated for accurately describing the situation in America today. Here are the stats:
* 49% of all Americans pay no federal income tax.
* 47% receive a check from the government of which more than half are means tested welfare checks (Medicaid, welfare, food stamps, etc.).
* 36% of all Americans of working age are either not working or looking for work.
...By stating this fundamental truth, albeit off the record, Romney has done a service for which he should be praised not excoriated... the fact remains that an Obama reelection would turn the tide psychologically in America from the land of upward mobility through hard work and initiative and toward a country akin to Greece: dependent on government aid in the form of a subsidy and government handouts."As I have said before, Democrats should listen to one of their own:
"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country" - John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961How soon we forget, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana
I agree with Dick Morris, Romney is right:
"... when government interferes with the work of the market economy, it tends to reduce the moral and physical strength of the nation; that when it takes from one man to bestow on another, it diminishes the incentive of the first, the integrity of the second, and the moral autonomy of both;” - The American Conservative Union, statement of principlesAnd Thomas Jefferson:
"Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition."
"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, 1816The choice in November is the clearest it has been since Reagan and Carter. Socialist America vs. Free America; Obama vs. Romney. Despite polls in the final months which favored Carter by 5-6 points, Reagan won by a landslide. It will be the same for Mitt Romney.
