You're going to have to do better than an opinion piece by a libertarian professor at a second rate right wing "Christian" college that espouses the very un-Christian free market theology. I read his opinion piece and some others written by him and find it easy to dismiss them as the rantings of a right wing libertarian who thinks that corporations should be able to rape and pillage the environment for profit.<quoted text>
Obama’s economic program is taken directly from the Marxist playbook and Marxist economics.
Reviewing Marx’s 10-point platform for how to socialize a country’s economy in stages (“The Communist Manifesto,” chapter two), Team Obama and his congressional progressive allies have taken actions to further the goals laid out in all 10 of the planks in the Marx platform.
If you want to read some examples, here they are:
You don't admit that your "mentor" was a Marxist and seek out Marxist professors in college unless you tend to lean toward Marxism yourself.
His assertion that Obama often has thwarted the development of domestic energy supplies through arbitrary regulatory control over massive tracts of federally owned land and restricting drilling in American waters off our coasts is a lie. In March 2010 the President proposed opening vast tracts of off shore sites for oil exploration and drilling ranging from Florida to Delaware and the east Gulf coast and northern Alaska many of these for the first time. Some environmentally sensitive areas are still off limits but to my mind that's exhibiting proper stewardship of our land.
His assertion that Obama is "obsessed" with taxing the rich is also a lie. Taxes on the upper incomes are less than they were under the Clinton Administration.
His statement on estate taxes is another lie. Under a deal made with the GOP Obama exempted more than 40,000 estates worth $1 million to $10 million even in the face of opposition by many Democrats.
He puts the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act squarely on Obama when in fact as part of the HIRE Act it was passed by the House 217-201 and the Senate 68-29 which means it was agreed to by members of both parties.
He criticizes Dodd-Frank which prevents large institutions from gambling with depositors money. He is also against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which as I've stated before will make it less likely that you'll get screwed on your home purchase and gives you recourse if you are. Should the government exert control over large institutions who if they make a mistake can topple the economy? Past history tells us yes.
Obama has in fact opposed the "Fairness Doctrine" so that's another lie.
High speed rail is not this moron's opinion not a "boondoggle" but a realistic way to decrease dependence on fossil fuels and whose construction would create thousands of jobs.
He also decries "free" education as Marxist when in fact it's biggest champion was Thomas Jefferson.
We can see where this is going, Mark Hendrickson is just another faux Christian who shills for those that Jesus leveled his harshest judgment on.
