IBD: Barack Obama’s Stealth Socialism


Investor’s Business Daily’s article Barack Obama’s Stealth Socialism is definitely worth a read. An exerpt follows…

During his NAACP speech earlier this month, 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 this election is 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, which is why we’re launching this special educational series.

“Economic justice” simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat. It’s a euphemism for socialism.

In the past, such rhetoric was just that — rhetoric. But Obama’s positioning himself with alarming stealth to put that rhetoric into action on a scale not seen since the birth of the welfare state.

    I also have to wonder if the “defining moment in history” that Obama often refers to so eloquently in his Utopian rhetoric is not the prospect of an African-American man becoming president, but the prospect of America moving from a capitalist society to a socialist society. That would definitely be a “defining moment” wouldn’t it? Maybe that’s also the “change we need” he refers to so often, as well. The associations he’s had with Ayers and Rev. Wright seem, to me, like the perfect breeding ground to foster such socialist ambitions. Gov. Palin asked recently in an interview with Sean Hannity what it was that Ayers saw in Obama to make him want to be associated with him. A great question! Maybe Ayers saw Obama as a perfect lump of clay to be molded in the radical image and bring about the “change” that Ayers, who still considers himself an anarchist and Marxist, tried to bring about in the ’70’s.
