How Close Are We to Marxism?

Barack Obama never has come out and actually said that he is a Marxist. Marxists seldom do during their revolutions, not until they are in FULL control of a Government. Fidel Castro did not announce that he was a Communist until a few weeks after his conquest of Cuba. However, that philosophy constantly exudes from everything Obama says in the political arena of economic theory. If Obama's master's thesis was not (unprecedentedly) sealed, we'd maybe know more truth about his political philosophy.

Marxist Rob Sewell’s essay on Marxism:
“Just as the emerging bourgeoisie in its revolution against feudal society challenged the conservative ideas of the old feudal aristocracy, so the working class, in its fight for a new society, needs to challenge the dominant outlook of its own oppressor, the capitalist class. Of course, the ruling class, through its monopoly control of the mass media, the press, school, university and pulpit, consciously justifies its system of exploitation as the most ‘natural form of society’....”

An opposing point of view:
“Thank you, Barack Obama! You strayed off your carefully prefabricated script and let voters glimpse the real you more than at any time since you let slip your desire to “spread the wealth around” when you bumped into ”Joe the plumber” four years ago.
“Your public comments in Roanoke on July 13—“If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”—were truly astounding. Mitt Romney called your remarks ‘insulting.’ A friend of mine used the word “ignorant.” Both are correct, but I would add another adjective: Marxist.....”

Conclusion:
Now go back to the essay by Rob Sewell. It doesn’t take a lot of intellect to see the contradictions in his theory. Capitalism DOES NOT own the press. Obama’s supporters do. Nor do they own any of the other institutions mentioned in the above paragraph. His supporters not only own the schools, they own the school of thought of Marxism, expounded by the unionized teachers and displayed in their support of Obama. Nor do capitalists own the pulpit. To debunk Sewell, all you have to do is sit through the sermons of almost any young Catholic priest, and the sermons of some protestants, particularly Jeremiah Wright's. Liberalism is a precursor to socialism and Marxism; all three are on the left side of the political spectrum. The blatant falsity of Sewell’s statement that capitalists own the universities is self-debunking when you consider that nearly all modern Marxists, including Obama, are products of the universities. We must conclude that the nation is closer to Marxist Government than we may have thought.

We are extremely close to falling over the cliff
in a number of areas and it only takes a slight
nudge for Barry Sortero and his clownbots to
take us into a area where Americans have never
ever been.

Once were there - gonna be hard to get back
to our good old America!

YES a place where "Americans have never ever been", it is called the FUTURE, Willy Mitt wants to take us back to the past and the failed polices of the Bush era disaster that brought us to the edge.

FORWARD - 4 MORE YEARS !!! OBAMA 2012 !!!
