Headed straight toward socialism?

Dear Editor:

The Left is having multiple “Obamasms” since Barack’s the nominee. If he becomes president, the first “change you can believe in” will be the change of our national anthem, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to “The International.” If he doesn’t win the election, all the Lefties will be whining about him losing because he was black, when in reality it will be because he lines up somewhere left of Lenin/Lennon politically.

Quotes straight from the mouths of the Left:

Chairman Obama said, “We can’t, uh, drive our SUVs and, y’know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, s’y’know, 72 degrees at all times whether we’re livin’ in the desert or livin’ in the tundra and, and then just expect that every other country’s goin’ to say OK.” (That is an exact transcription. Everyone keeps talking about how eloquently he speaks. Is that because he doesn’t interject “yo, yo, yo” before every sentence and call everybody “dawg”? He’s a terrible public speaker with poor phrasing, cadence, timing and vocabulary).

Question: Were it not for the U.S. aid to these “other countries,” the people would have starved or been rolled over by the Communists. Who cares what they think of our standard of living? They all envy our prosperity.

Mrs. Chairman Obama said, “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.” She continued to whine, “We spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements. And summer programs … do you know what summer camp costs?” and “The salaries don’t keep up with the cost of paying off the debt, so you’re in your 40s, still paying off your debt at a time when you have to save for your kids.” That’s on a combined family income of about $500,000 a year.

Question: Does it look like she’s giving up any of her pie? Doesn’t she sound like Karl Marx, who said, “From each according to their ability, to each according to their need?”

Maxine Waters said to the oil company executives, “And guess what this Liberal would be all about. This Liberal will be about socializing … uh, um … would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”

Question: Do you think she could do a better job? Do you think she could do any job?

Nan Pelosi said, “Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians ” they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities ” the Iranians.”

Question: Does she have any idea what she’s talking about?

Do you want this country to become the People’s National Democratic Socialist States of America?
