    The other day he's out advocating for 'equal pay'. The premise behind this idea is that the free market does not fairly decide salaries so the government has to step in and do the job. This is not just socialism where the government takes a big percentage of our incomes for some allegedly good cause. This is communism. The government decides exactly what you get.

    Obama's platform is higher taxes, more regulations, artificial price controls (a staple of every communist regime), and big government programs. Most Americans are not even socialists let alone Marxist. Yet they are for Obama. I have to figure its because he's black, everyone is just so eager to see a black president they don't even investigate that all the mentors and trachers Obama has had since he was born are either radical Muslims or radical Communists. This is from his early days in Hawaii, to his college days, to his church in Chicago.

    Until he advocates worker ownership of the means of production, he is not a full blown Marxist.

    I haven't see that on his website.

    The List of Lists at marxism.org - educate yourself about Marxism. Obama is a bourgeoise member of a bourgeoise party. He's about as Marxist as George Bush.

    Saying that Obama is for Marxism is like saying Bush is for the Spanish Inquisition.

    BTW, ronpaul2008, what did he mean when he said "equal pay." Give us the context because it can mean many things. And can you link it?

    Toro I believe that both Obama and the poster are referring to this:

    Obama has endorsed a bad piece of pay legislation - Jun. 5, 2007

    That bill was an effort to allow people to sue if they found they were discriminated against, no? That doesn't remotely smack of marxism. I personally don't understand the objections to it.

    From a look over, I'd say that the problem comes on the reasons for pay discrepancy, which is what the op-ed was about. It seems if passed, the bill would result in a flood of claims of pay discrimination.

    I'll look on some legal sites, see if there is some discussion.

    The Volokh Conspiracy - More on Obama's View of the Constitution:

    I definitely do not like his approach to the constitution. Links at site:
