Communists required everyone to work. The refusal to hold a job was a felony in the Soviet Union, and was put under the heading of ‘social parasitism’.

I wonder what percentage of Obama’s support would be accurately described as social parasites?

This is not a defense of communism by the way, just illustrating that this thing of Obama’s is actually even more corrupted, sickly and unproductive than historical communist policy.

The difference between a Bolshevik and a Fauxshevik.

As one who traveled in the old Soviet Union and eastern bloc countries eons ago, I can say with great certainty that Obama is, indeed a Marxist/Communist - pure and simple. There is no mystery — some of knew what he was BEFORE the ‘08 election. Pity that only now are more people in the US beginning to pay attention —

"We've got to make sure that people who have more money help the people who have less money," Sen. Obama said. "If you had a whole pizza, and your friend had no pizza, would you give him a slice?"

If you had a whole pizza which was enough to feed your family, and someone you never met used the full force and violence of the government to take it from you leaving a few crusts and the greasy box would you vote for Obama a second time?

I think things are being stretched a bit. I think Obama is a socialist, but he’s waiting for a good time to spring his plan on the country. So far, he hasn’t done much. “Socialized medicine”? Well, a bit, but it’s not the government paying for care and running things, which is classic socialism. People still buy insurance from private companies. Bush did more of the classic “socialized medicine” with his Prescription drug bill. Takeover of GM and AIG? Would it have been better to bail them out and NOT have ownership interest? I don’t think so. The only other option was to let them fail, but there were some pretty clever people who argued against that. Tough call for me.

The true colors of Obama the socialist will be revealed, but so far he’s kept them hidden pretty well. Maybe he’s counting on a second term to get the job done then.

Is Obama really a socialist? Typical liberal media gibberish intended to waste time. Notice when a real story on Obama is available they all go elsewhere? Reverend Wright? Ayers? Jones?

Obama is an America hating hard core Stalinist. He claims his greatest influence was Communist Frank Marshall Davis. He said in college he sought out fellow Marxists. He talked about the Constitution guaranteeing “negative rights” not “positive rights” like income redistribution. This is a communist position. He told Joe the Plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth around.
He confiscated the property of the bondholders of Chrysler and GM. Confiscation of private property is the key tenet of socialism. In Chicago he began his career with the New Party a socialist/communist party. He worked with William Ayers(a communist) on leftist foundations in Chicago. He has denounced America and Americans throughout the world.

What more does this guy need?

“The only difference between a liberal and a communist is... the communist knows what he’s doing.” - Rush Limbaugh.

Obama knows what he’s doing.

He’s a Marxist/Muslim usurper and nobody has the guts to stop him from destroying America.

I'd teach him how to make pizza.

For the record: The fact that this thread exists on FR after all that we have witnessed in the past few years is clear evidence that this country is lost.

Unbelievable!

Go watch TV and forget what’s happening in our country. If you all are too stupid to see what this man is, then we don’t need you in this fight.

Barack is a pro-American, pro-Capitalist, pro-Constitutional, wonderful President. Ronald Reagan would be proud.

There, does that make you feel better, punkin?

FReepers are not doing their homework! It was going around in the campaign. The big o ran on socialist ticket in Chicago.

“1996 Election Update From The Columbus Free Post
“The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks.”
