    For some reason I couldn't get an answer to this question on another thread, so I thought I would start a new thread on it. Maybe that will help.

    Another poster who absolutely, positively will remain nameless (it was JoeB131) provided some examples of significant actions Obama has taken that used to be considered conservative but that are now used as examples of how Obama is a Radical Socialist Marxist Communist. Seemed like a reasonable point.

    So here's the question: Including the following list of actions, could someone please illustrate why they feel Obama is a Radical Socialist Marxist Communist?

    • Continued Bush's Iraq War
    • Continued Bush's Afghanistan War
    • Continued Bush's TARP policies
    • Continued Bush's Auto Bailouts
    • Adopted Romney's Health Plan
    • Kept public option out of Obamacare
    • Wants a top marginal income tax rate of 39.6%

    Please explain how you look at the various actions Obama has taken while in office, including the above, that have led you to conclude that he is a Radical Socialist Marxist Communist. For example, you may think that a top marginal tax rate of 39.6% is the standard communist figure.

    And I'm confident you can do this without spin, diversion, denial, name-calling or personal insults.

    Thanks!

    That's it? I'd think people would be jumping all over this opportunity!

    Hasn't Rush covered this?

    The real socialists hated "Obamacare" for its lack of socialism, there's a lot wrong with it that has everything to do with capitalism and nothing to do with socialism.

    Socialism is an epic fail all over the planet.

    The failure of Socialism has people rioting in the streets of Europe. Meanwhile over in the Peoples Republic of Vietnam, a Communist government abandoned its failed Central planning, state owned ideology in favor of Free markets and private property. And in record time they went from having to import 1 million tons of rice annually to being the second largest exporter of rice on the planet and building a prosperous nation and middle class...no riots in the streets either

    This is terribly frustrating. I expected several immediate responses to my clear and direct question.

    Anyone?

    Anyone?

    Bueller?

    Obama supporters have taken on his characteristics.

    Obama, it is being discovered by all, is not the man we see on the TV. He is not the man we're constantly being told by journalists. The nice guy. The Christian.

    One thing that is being discovered is that he lies about just about anything and everything. Because of that his supporters have to constantly rationalize bad acts and embellish his accomplishments. He says one thing then does another. The best tool to use in an indictment of his policies is his own words. He's constantly contradicting himself, yet he calls Romney a flip-flopper.

    The problem with Obama, as we're discovering, is that we really don't know anything about him. We don't know what he's made up about his past. We do know that he constantly takes credit for things he's didn't do. He makes up fake girlfriends and it's rationalized away as being a composite.

    Oh.....that explains it.

    It is a major effort by the media just to keep propping him up. If they wanted to, they could destroy him overnight......but anyone who dares is liable to have their divorce records investigated. Fear of crossing the guy permeates the government and the private sector. Obama is capable of doing just about anything to assure his reelection.

    He claims he's such a great wartime president, but he's kept a hiring freeze in place his entire time as president. I've never seen this happen before, and I've been in the service of this nation during Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and now Obama. The Department of Defense at first went about their jobs but kept asking for guidance on changes. Now we've gotten used to the lack of leadership and we're just trying to make it through the next day.

    Cut-backs on active-duty personnel has already begun. The Administrations tried to float the idea that the war was over, but yesterday I was told by the post commander that it is far from over. We buried two of our soldiers this week and most of your units aren't even deployed, yet the cuts in personnel is in full force.

    The post looks in disrepair. Cut-backs have forced us to resort to using push-mowers to cut the grass on this expansive post. Up until last year the place looked normal, but now everywhere you look the grass is 3 feet high. Roads are falling into disrepair full of pock-holes and cracks. All of the Bush money and Stimulus is gone. Now hard choices have to be made. Choices that we usually don't have to make. The mission goes on. Units are about to be redeployed yet we really don't have the money to do it anymore.

    We don't get a paper copy of our pay from the government anymore. In an effort to cut costs the Administrations has cut off all mail deliveries of Leave And Earning Statements, for retired, and DoD employees. This happened with little or no notice. So it looks like if you want to know what you were paid, or how much leave you have you have to access their archaic and outdated internet site and print a copy for your records.

    I see nothing that says Obama is a rightwinger. I figure we'll see what he really has in mind if he get's reelected. Then he won't give a flying-fuck what we think about it. We'll spend the next four years trying to find a way to get rid of him.
