I’m afraid it is that bad. I’ve come across too many people who have swallowed the “class warfare” pill and are okay with Obama’s agenda. They may not be vocal and loud, but secretly, they want this. They truly believe redistribution will save society. (As much as that thought sickens me).

I used to believe that lowering the voting age to 18 was right, but 0bama proves that wrong. How many votes did he get because MTV told teenagers it was the "cool" thing to do? >/I>

It's those same youth votes that are fleeing Obama in stampedes. If you were in college as a freshman in 2008, you are now about to graduate and the prospects of finding a job are dim. All the upper classmen have already graduated, and are either unemployed or working at a low paying job that is not in their major field. All the present freshmen were in junior high in 2008 and have seen the effects of Zero's policies on their older brothers and sisters if they are paying any attention at all. The HS seniors are in the same boat, thinking about their future in 4 years, and it doesn't look good. The youth vote is lost to him..............

Imagine two guys. One has a hundred bucks, one has none. I tell them, its not fair that one has so much and the other so little. The guy with a hundred looks at us, realizes he is outnumbered, and hands over twenty.

The guy with twenty still isn’t happy, because the other guy still has four times as much. He looks to me, to see if I’ll help him take a few dollars more.

The other guy looks to me, to see if I’ll protect him from the other guy.

They just elected me king.

Most Americans today don’t know squat about economic and political theories. They are the products of a deliberately (Communist orchestrated) dumbed down education system. So, back to your question, I think the answer is some of both.

If memory serves me right, I believe McCain was ahead in the polls after Labor Day in 2008. McCain lost his lead right when Lehman Brothers came crashing down. Just yesterday, ex-Gov. Paterson of NY stated that Obama is the luckiest politician he has ever seen. Every opponent he has had self destructed without Obama’a help. In McCain’s case, he would have won without the crash of the economy occuring weeks before the election. Even with Wall Street plunging over the cliff, McCain still managed to get 47% of the vote with the climate being ideal for Democrats.

The majority of Obama voters think Communism died a long time ago/don’t know what it is.
The majority of Obama voters just want their “piece of the pie”, don’t understand the concept of receiving what you actually work for.

Or, in other words; they are just dirt stupid.

Yes, there is a small percentage that voted because of ideology but even they can’t bring themselves to admit the “C” word.

I started to call them the empty scrotums of Washington....

That is a nice politically correct turn of phrase. :-)

To find the true answer to this question do a search for Communists Goals, The Frankfurt School, and Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Those show the intent, how long they have been at it and the tactics they use. It is discouraging how close they are to obtaining all their goals.

Really? I know a whole lot of Obama voters who now regret that decision. You’d have to go to some real inner-city ‘hoods to find anyplace where he is still popular around here.

Being 73 I have been watching it happen since the 60s. When people would talk about a secret conspiracy, I'd say hells bells its not secret, it wide open for those that have eyes...those radicals of the 60’s have come of age and now run the government and the alphabet soup departments..not until they all die out will things slowly change....the ship of state doesn't turn on a dime anymore than an aircraft carrier does...we need a president that will make the start of the turn around. De fund those idiot EPA, ADA, BATFE DEPT OF EDUCATION (CARTERS PAYOFF TO THE TEACHERS UNION)DEPT OF COMMERCE, AND ALL THE REST EXCEPT DEPT OF DEFENSE...Impeach lawyers that think they are legislators, tort reform, loser pays, class action lawsuits that only puts money in the pockets of lawyers....etc etc etc...

Americans these days respond to slick sales pitches like never before. Check out the TV big bucks advertisements to which the viewing public respond by spending bigger bucks.

The American people don't realize that the government officials of communist countries never live a communist lifestyle themselves.

Why else would they vote for Obama?

Because all of the warnings about what he truly is came from folks like us, to whom they will never listen as we have been portrayed as right wing ideologues. Even when the proof is before their eyes and ears, they will shut their eyes tightly, cover their ears and chant la, la, la, LA, LA, LAAAA!

Some don’t even know what it means

Bingo. I'd wager that 1/3 of obama voters could not even provide a high-school-level definition of communism.

Before the 2008 election, I warned a 20-something co-worker that obama was a proponent a socialism. He said, "Isn't that when the corporations control everything?" He was an obama supporter.

Nope.

My workplace is filled with university-educated liberals. There is none that I’ve talked to that regret voting for the 0bama0. They will all enthusiastically vote for it again.

In my family are university educated liberals. They are the same.

It’s only we rednecks in the family, and here at work, that take exception to communists.

One of the guys at work calls himself a “progressive”. Just a euphemism for commie.

I, too, am 73 and have been attentive to it since the 1940s. I had two uncles in WWII and the entire household was keen on any news about it. They also, unfortunately, were FDR fans but I think that is more because the media were championing him and his New Deal.

A very popular young athlete in our neighborhood was killed in Korea when the Chinese stormed across the border at the Chosin Reservoir. That brought that war home also. The 60s were hippie time and once again the media trumpeted the destruction of our value system with drugs and free love (sex). One of its main purposes was to win the Vietnam war for the Communists. It worked as they built support for the Democrats to betray our ally, the South Vietnamese.

What a lot of people don’t know and something I did not list, is the real beginning of the Communist push in this country. That is Vladimir Lenin sending Julius and Armand Hammer to the U.S. in the late 1800s to raise money to support the beginning of the Communist movement in Russia and in their eventual overthrow of Tsar Nicholas II.

Hammer was very successful and among his early recruits to the cause were Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, whose family controlled and published The New York Times, and Senator Albert Gore, Sr., of Tennessee. Ever since, both have been agents for the Communist Party in the USA. It is an interesting story and everyone should learn it. As part of that, do research on Al Gore and the Elk Hills Naval Petroleum Reserve in California and Occidental Petroleum (owned by Armand Hammer) and oil drilling in South America. Brazil, I think but not sure.

The Democrats were strongly opposed to drilling in both places but as VP Gore pulled strings and opened the door for Occidental in both places. Elk Hills was being held in reserve for use by the navy in times of war, thus the name. The Democrats opposed oil drilling in SA because they said it would destroy the “rain forest” and disturb the native indians ancestral home. They had stopped efforts by other U.S. oil companies to drill there. Occidental said to hell with all that and plowed ahead.

I have lived it all and I always payed attention.

The education about our history was replaced about 15-20 years ago by only history from the 1960’s onward.The youngsters have been indoctrinated to this begin a good thing and there is nothing you can do to get them to realize that this is all a lie.I guess once we all all enslaved they may realize it wasn’t such a good idea?

I’m sorry, but when >50% of the people make a living from USG, then they are going to vote for more government.

Gee, most of the people who are part of this game are smart enough to call it something other than communism or socialism.

The main game of the modern intellectual, Harvard boys, is to _rename_ things to solve them.

No.
It means that one third of Obama voters have no clue what "communism" means or what its results have been worldwide in the last 100 years.

Enough to decide the election.

The Idiocracy arrived four years ago.

Hopefully, enough people realize he was a definite change, but for the worse.

I recall when I first heard the mindless phrase "Change," my immediate reaction and response was WTF? What does that mean?
Getting cancer is "change"... getting struck by a feight train is "change." I have been repeating that response regularly ever since.

Odumbo never bothered to define the word then and he never has. But his actions and the results make his intention unequivocal.

I hope I didn't offend you with my last answer to you. If you took it that way, its not the way I meant it...People our age had family in WW2, and my brother was drafted during the Korean war (oops we were suppose to call it a police action)but my brother spent his army time in Germany.

The Chinese army came across the Korean border in the thousands....I have heard (probably you have also) people talk about doing something with N. Korea. They probably aren't up the geography and don't know Korea borders Communist china.

The MSM was worse back in the Nam days, there was no alternative voice to that nit wit Walter Cronkite.. and Johnson once bragged in an interview that nothing was bombed in Nam unless he gave the ok....Typical democrat president with the blood of thousands on his hands.

Even today with the rules of engagement for our military, send our men out and then tie their hands, may all that do that go to hell....The ridiculous don't urinate toward Mecca makes a farce, not out of men but those gutless wonders, powdered princes in the upper ranks of the military..It seems that the lawyers in the military get off on taking our warriors to Court Marshal...when they are innocent of the charges...God, how I hate them and I never thought I would say that about anyone...

You and I are in complete agreement. I don’t know what in my reply may have made you think differently but I was not offended by anything you said. I was just trying to say that since we are the same age that I saw things the same way you did. My explanation was just to verify that, not to say anything offensive.

Most people in America haven’t ever learned how evil and bloodthirsty the 100 year experiment in Communism was for the Soviet Union and China. Schools have been infiltrated already so that the facts were not taught.
