Barack Obama's re-election has adopted a new slogan: "Forward"

It has some really interesting historical predecessors:


via GP

And then there are these:

Under the Leadership of the Great Stalin — Forward to Communism!

Under Lenin’s Banners, Under Stalin’s Leadership, Forward to a New Prosperity of the Soviet Motherland, to the Complete Victory of Communism in Our Country!

Forward to the Victory of Communism!

Via WZ

And over at Free Republic was the reminder of these images:

And who could forget this?


All we need now is that "Civilian Defense Force" as powerful as the military.

Then we'll take your guns

The collection agency for the Federal Reserve known as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is working with legislators to gain control over the rights of Americans. Without the right to due process, the IRS can simply claim a citizen owes $50,000 dollars or more to their illegal operation. This accusation alone will give their agency the right to revoke American’s travel rights and even remove the right to own a firearm.

Yes, one of the biggest songs that the Hitler Youth were taught back in the thirties was a little master race ditty...actually their anthem I believe, called, "Vorwärts!"

In English it means, "Forward."

First stanza in German:

"Vorwärts, Vorwärts, schmettern die hellen Fanfaren,
Vorwärts, Vorwärts, Jugend kennt keine Fegahren!"

English translation:

"Forward, forward raise the bright fanfare,
Forward, Forward, our youth know no danger!"

Too bad Repubs will use none of this. 'Over the cliff' may be Mitt's best response. Not bad; but so much more!

Of course, 'forward' is the Left's to own. It's where 'Progressives' found their name.

Who could forget the Great Leap Forward, resulting in the deaths of 18-45 million Chinese?
