Before friendly audiences, Barack Obama speaks passionately about something called"economic justice." He uses the term obliquely, though, speaking in code, socialist code.
During an NAACP speech, Then Sen. Obama, repeated the term at least four times. "I've been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served," he said at the group's 99th annual convention in Cincinnati. And as president, "we'll ensure that economic justice is served," he asserted. "That's what his election was about." Obama never spelled out the meaning of the term, but he didn't have to. His audience knew what he meant, judging from its thumping approval. It's the rest of the public that remains in the dark. "Economic justice" simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat (official order). It's a euphemism for socialism.
In the past, such rhetoric was just that, rhetoric. But Obama's positioned himself with alarming stealth to put that rhetoric into action on a scale not seen since the birth of the welfare state. In his latest memoir he shares that he'd like to "recast" the welfare net that FDR and LBJ cast while rolling back what he derisively calls the "winner-take-all" market economy that Ronald Reagan reignited (with record gains in living standards for all).
Obama also talks about "restoring fairness to the economy," code for soaking the "rich", a segment of society he fails to understand that includes mom and pop businesses filing individual tax returns. It's clear from a close reading of his two books that he's a firm believer in class envy. He assumes the economy is a fixed pie, whereby the successful only get rich at the expense of the poor.
Following this discredited Marxist model, he believes government must step in and redistribute pieces of the pie. That requires massive transfers of wealth through government taxing and spending, a return to the entitlement days of old. Of course, Obama is too smart to try to smuggle such hoary collectivist garbage through the front door. He's disguising the wealth transfers as "investments", "to make America more competitive," he says, or "that give us a fighting chance," whatever that means.
Obama called for America's "fundamental transformation" in 2008, his stealth socialist allies knew what he meant. To them, it meant taking power and doing as fast as feasible whatever could be done to transform the United States of America into a socialist state, so that "progressives" would retain power in perpetuity (with the help of legislators who would vote for "progressive" legislation against the will of the people.
Also the addition to the federal judiciary of activists who would rubberstamp unconstitutional acts instead of honor sacred oaths to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic".
Obama's Supreme Court nominations tell us the truth about his intentions.
Six-time Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas realized that he would never be elected and consoled himself with the thought that his ideas ultimately would prevail.
Thomas (1948): "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."
Fact: Obama's first Supreme Court nominee, now Justice Sonia Sotomayor, selected that Thomas quotation for inclusion in her Princeton College yearbook.
Fact: The subject of the Princeton College senior thesis of Obama's second Supreme Court nominee, now his Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, is socialism. That thesis, titled "To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933," is available . In it, Kagan lamented (p. 127): "In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness." Read Elena Kagan's Princeton Senior Thesis Yourself.
We need to re-capitalize America, return to the freedom that the Founders promised us. And there need be any "stealth" involved in such a transition.
VOTE OBAMA OUT IN 2012!
