    Okay, what does he mean by Social Compact?

    Does he mean you have to give up your freedoms to survive? Does he want to take care of us but we must give him our freedoms in return?

    Why would a Marxist/Socialist choose this phrase?

    The meaning is clear to me, but is it to you?

    The "social compact" is a strawman invoked by collectivist authoritarians of all stripes, in order to rationalize their mob rule aggression.

    Under American law, such a "social contract" would be deemed unenforceable as an unlawful contract of adhesion.

    He is a socialist so don't be surprised when he talks like one.

    Buying votes by punishing the rich (anyone who earns a living).

    When it comes time to pay the bills those evil Republicans catch hell because we don't want them to cut our piece of the pie. Who cares that we can't afford it anymore. Leave my goodies alone.

    Eventually Obama is going to ask more then we're willing to give up to be protected from those evil Republicans.

    Well, more then most of us are willing to give up. We all know many unions will give up just about anything to keep their pensions, including their sense of right and wrong. It's why they booed during the singing of the National Anthem at this weekend's Tea Party rallies.
