Naivete leads otherwise astute people to insult our president's intelligence by saying, "Obama doesn't know what he is doing." For enlightenment, Google that phrase. Obama knows exactly what he is doing.
He is a disciple of Saul Alinsky and the Cloward-Piven strategy developed by lifelong members of the Democratic Socialists of America. That strategy implemented by Obama's ACORN foot soldiers helped drive the high-risk mortgage lending that precipitated our economic meltdown. Major media ignored Obama's radical associations, experience and background that prepared him for his messianic mission of transformative "change."
Like John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, he fully understands that tax cuts create prosperity and jobs. But unlike them, his goal is to grow big government, destroy our capitalistic system and replace it with a socialistic, Marxist totalitarian government. He has adopted the philosophy of Friedrich Engels, who collaborated and helped Karl Marx write the Communist Manifesto . Engels saw three major obstacles to the socialistic vision: private property, religion and traditional marriage.
No objectively moral person could have voted for Obama and other liberals who destroy the common good with the intrinsic evils of abortion, homosexual marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, etc. Their "fundamental option for the poor" is to imprison them on the government plantation and torture them with class envy, false promises and foolish hopes.
It takes more than 300 words to educate patriotic Americans, whether Democrat, Republican or independent, and inspire them to recognize and drain the stinking swamp being deliberately created by Obama, his czars and the current breed of power-mad Democrats. I therefore encourage every one of goodwill, especially our religious leaders, to Google "Cloward-Piven" and to read the following: www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=6967.
Liberal ideologues -- especially ministers, priests and bishops -- need to finally confess that their beloved Democratic Party of old has abandoned them and America.
