Chavez promised his people change, and now Venezuelans are abandoning their country in droves.
Another country wrecked for the sake of “change”.
so where will we go when obama turns us into a third world nation?
I just found an article last night about a meeting between Farrakhan and Castro.
“During an approximately one-hour-long press conference on March 27, 2006, in Havana, Cuba, Min. Farrakhan stated, ...We need regime change in America.”
And I had this feeling that this is what Obama was referring to when he said, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.” Is he the nation of Islam’s Chosen One in that quest? Is he to be the instrument of regime change in America? Is this what he means by “change?”
I will say that Obama hopes to be more than just another administration. He almost certainly believes his presidency will change America.
Its hard to sell flawed old America with all its worts and scars and all of its patches and repairs, when the guy next door is offering a shiny new America, perfect, with that new car smell, the America of our collective dreams. How can reality, forever under construction and undergoing constant repairs, compete with a dream?
ONE NEWS NOW.com: "OBAMA RADIO AD TARGETS FOCUS ON THE FAMILY" by Jim Brown (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Spokesman Carrie Gordon Earll says Focus on the Family's response to the ad would be Christ's words found in Matthew 7:20, "You will know them by their fruits."") (July 24, 2008, 5:00 am)
I would say compared to Obama, Fidel is a free market Capitalist.
