Obama Sr. was an economist, and in 1965 he published an important article in the East Africa Journal called "Problems Facing Our Socialism." Obama Sr. wasn't a doctrinaire socialist; rather, he saw state appropriation of wealth as a necessary means to achieve the anticolonial objective of taking resources away from the foreign looters and restoring them to the people of Africa. For Obama Sr. this was an issue of national autonomy. "Is it the African who owns this country? If he does, then why should he not control the economic means of growth in this country?"
As he put it, "We need to eliminate power structures that have been built through excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now." The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed

I try not to ascribe to conspiracy what can more easily be ascribed to sheer vanity and stupidity.
Obama is a narcissist (like Clinton but without the charm) and a complete idiot. What adult in America thinks that Orion is pronounced “Or-ee-on” instead of “O-rye-un”. The guy got an affirmative action pass throughout his life and we are paying the price.
In a sane world, Obama’s Jeremiah Wright connection would have ended his presidential campaign, right then and there. End of story, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
That it didn’t showed the power of the SRM to shape public perception. It also shows the size of the segment of the voting population who harbor deep animosity for our country, or at the very least, don’t take their country seriously.
Excellent article, I have a much clearer understanding of why Barry is so hostile to this country.
And when he runs for re-election, at least 30% of voting America will vote for him. Amazing.
This will all seem so obvious in retrospect.
Dreams of my Father?..... The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that “theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”
This disaster in the White House is as anti-American as it gets. Excellent article....Saving it and e-mailing it to friends. It’s the kind of reporting the media should have done on him way before he ran for POTUS.....
What adult in America thinks that the Navy guys who provide medical care to Marines in the field are "corpse-men" instead of "core-men"?
When it comes to the USA, Obama has the mentality of a envious and resentful Third Worlder. He is our first Third World president, at least in mentality and background. That mentality explains practically all his actions and inactions.
(My head hurts.)
This explains all the motivations of a Kenyan born citizen operating the levers of the US government, as he does.
The USA, as explained by Vatell in the Law of Nations and understood by Washington, is just his place of birth. His Loyalty is to his Kenyan Father and his home Country, Kenya. Not the USA.
This is a great article. 5 pages and well worth the time to read. Thank you for posting.
Oh my! His book makes more sense now. He must have spent many, many hours talking this over with Ayers.
The Won may have been born an American (though there's definitely something on his birth certificate he doesn't want to get out into the public) but he certainly wasn't raised an American.
Zactly! The guy is a moron.
“”Progressives” are sentimental idealists, always looking for some idyllic time in the past or the future.”
....that never really existed, and never will.
