Obama Confirmed Socialist Membership

with 2 comments

The MSM’s and liberals froth over the fact that Todd Palin was a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, yet not a muttering about Barack Obama’s membership to Chicago’s Democratic SSocialist “New Party.”

From the October 1996 Update of the DSA ‘New Party’:
“New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races…

Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).”

Obama Sought Endorsement Of Marxist Third Party

DSA Public School Teacher: The Power Of Public Education:

“I’ve done nothing else for the past thirty years but try to see how one might go about reinventing schools to serve democracy, rather than serve to undermine it.”

DSA Announcement prior to a Democratic national convention:

In the past, DSA has organized a meeting of a “Socialist Caucus” at Democratic National Conventions. There are tentative plans for doing something similar at this convention, albeit rather more policy oriented, around a “Pledge for Economic Justice”.

And if you are interested in hijacking the media circus that surrounds the convention, there are almost as many opportunities to participate.

Cliff Kincaid’s Socialism Coming To America

Thanks to Sweetness & Light who posted this reminder of Obama’s Socialist plan for United States.

Let’s remind readers of which countries which are currrently socialist and/or run by a dictator. Freelance writer and website operator Z. Perry writes:

  • Cuba: Cuba is one of the most Socialist nations, as it has a mostly state-run economy, universal healthcare, government-paid education at all levels, and a number of of social programs. It does not have a stock exchange.
  • North Korea: The same is true of North Korea, which has an almost entirely state-run economy, as well as the same social programs mentioned for Cuba. Like Cuba, North Korea does not have a stock exchange.
  • Venezuela: Economy has more private ownership, but the government social programs are quite extensive and the foreign policy is very left-wing. Cuban doctors and teachers have been brought to Venezuela to provide some medical and educational services. China: A substantial part of the economy is still state-run, although there are not as many social programs as there once were and universal healthcare has been eliminated. Still has a Socialist-type foreign policy, for the most part.
  • Vietnam: A significant part of the economy is state-run. Close ties with Cuba, Venezuela, and Belarus.
  • Syria: Although not commonly referred to as Socialist in the West, Syria has a mostly state-run economy and universal healthcare, along with a left-wing foreign policy.
  • Belarus: Much of the Belarussian economy is state-run and some govt. social programs are available. Belarus has close ties with Venezuela, China, and other Socialist countries.
  • Sweden: Mostly private industry, but many well-funded govt. social programs are offered. Universal healthcare and government-provided education at all levels is made available. “In the Nordic countries, the social security system provides generous public pensions that may depress wealth accumulation.” [T’s note: A Swedish government website reports that the tax burden in Sweden is equivalent to 51% of GDP, which together with Denmark is the highest in the world.

Now let’s see what countries have the best household wealth.

Hmmm… the countries with the best household [T: you and me] wealth in the world:

  • The United States of America
  • Japan
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Spain
  • Canada
  • Taiwan
  • Korea

All capitalistic and free democratic countries. Any questions on what an Obama-socialist presidential term would do to our country?

  2. To me and a lot of others, Socialism is looking better and better. Can it be any worse than this greedy, capitalist place we call home, or America. The rich will have to get use to sharing instead of grabbing and stealing like Wall Street and the banks. Come on $450,000 spent by AIG on a spa bonus weekend after borrowing 700 billion from the country to bail out. And they had another weekend planned after that but cancelled when it was found out. Lehman Brothers is on the hot seat too now. It looks to me like the Republicans don’t have any solid plan for the economy, the environment, and health benefits. They dont have an answer for the middle class, and especially for the poor so they have to smear Obama and his campaign. And Sarah Palin will go to her fundie preacher and start the Salem Witch Trials all over again. Does Alaska have that much money to give $150. for each wolf’s paw that they shoot down from helicopters. I’m with John Lennon – its time for Revolution! And Obama can lead the way. The wealthy will have to learn what it’s like to be without and share.
