Obama's Policies And Platforms Show That The Road To Hell Is Paved With Democrats

Well, the battle is joined. For the Republicans, we have John McCain, a right-of-center candidate who probably isn't as Conservative as we'd like him to be, and for the Dems we have B. Hussein Obama, an uber-leftist who takes his cues from Marxists/Socialists and other followers of the Communist Manifesto. Do you think I'm being dramatic? I don't.

In a column for TownHall.com, Richard H. Collins looks at the overall policies of B. Hussein Obama and where those influences came from:

Obama makes a lot of promises. He promises universal health care where everyone has coverage whatever the circumstances and yet costs go down. But it doesn’t take an economist to figure out that this is an expensive project and no amount of technology can magically give people free health care. Someone will have to pay more. Michelle Obama admitted as much, remarking on the campaign trail:

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”

Take a wild guess who that someone is going to be. If you said American taxpayers you guessed right. Obama, like all Democrats, promises to only raise taxes on the “rich.” But once the reality of the budget – including all the new spending he proposes – hits, it is amazing how flexible that term can become.

Michelle's comment clearly shows where the Obama's are on economic policy. She might as well have just come out point blank and said, "We intend to levy higher taxes in order to confiscate more money from those who work to earn it and then give that money to people who did not work to earn it."

In other words, the average American is going to have to pay. As soon as B. Hussein Obama figures out that taxing the top earners also causes an increase in unemployment and a decrease in tax revenues, he will redefine "rich" to mean most of the middle class as well. For him and the other libs, it is all about controlling people and he believes that the best way to do that is to control their wallets, just like the Soviets and their satellites did.


Obama campaigns against free trade and for more union power as if those positions will lead to higher paying jobs. I am sure passing a card check bill that takes away the right to a secret ballot, and is favored by the big labor unions, will help a few of Obama’s supporters in their high paying jobs but for everyone else it will simply stifle the economy and restrict the rights of workers and companies.

Without the onerous restrictions of big government regulations and the inflexibility of union power, American companies can compete anywhere in the world and their doing so means economic growth. But Obama wants to tell companies where and how they can run their businesses. He wants to restrict trade in order to protect his union supporters. But a middle class built on union power is a vision from the past not the future.

Obama’s leftist positions should come as no surprise. After all, Obama sought the support of the far left New Party when he ran for state senate in Illinois. This is a party who felt the Democrats were not liberal enough and was organized by a collection of Marxist/socialists seeking government control of the economy. Obama has a clear history of working with these leftist groups in Chicago, and steering money and power their way.

And it has been us bloggers and others in the New Media who have been bringing this information out. You will never hear this mentioned on CNN, NBC, ABC or CBS. In fact, Steve Doocy of Fox and Friends went so far as to call NBC the National Barack Channel and he is correct in his assessment. None of those outlets will ever allow the truth behind B. Hussein Obama to ever come out.

And finally:

The question of this election is whether the American people are going to mistake Obama’s charm and charisma for real leadership and effective solutions; if they are going to ignore his troubling past because he gives a good speech and looks good on TV; if they are going to fall for the promise of a government who can give them everything.

To Americans who are tempted to be taken in by the smooth talking snake oil salesmen, I say beware. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The promise of big government often sounds good, but it always ends in broken promises and higher taxes. As the saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Clearly, B. Hussein Obama knows nothing about real change. His idea of change is to go back and try more leftist/socialist policies that we already know will fail and cause nothing but pain and hardship here in America.

Is that the change you want? If so, move to North Korea or China and you may find out that the real "worker's paradise" is a free and unencumbered United States of America.
