“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Is Barack Obama a Socialist?

His response:


President Obama has denied that he is a socialist. He has a hard time admitting it is even a "serious" question. Many on the left ridicule those who call Obama a socialist and say they don't know the definition of socialism. So here is the traditional definition of socialism from Dictionary.com:

1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

2.
procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.

3.
(in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.

What does the largest socialist organization (DSA) in America have to say:
Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.

More from the Democratic Socialists of America (pdf):

"Democratic socialists do not want to create an all-powerful government bureaucracy. But we do not want big corporate bureaucracies to control our society either. Rather, we believe that social and economic decisions should be made by those whom they most affect."

"Today, corporate executives who answer only to themselves and a few wealthy stockholders make basic economic decisions affecting millions of people. Resources are used to make money for capitalists rather than to meet human needs. We believe that the workers and consumers who are affected by economic institutions should own and control them."

"Social ownership could take many forms, such as worker-owned cooperatives or publicly owned enterprises managed by workers and consumer representatives."

"Socialism in America today means government ownership or control of the means of production in order to make money for social needs."

In order to understand Barack Obama's view of socialism, we need to understand his history.

Barack Obama Sr. (His Father)

Barack Obama's first book was titled "Dreams of My Father." Obama's father abandoned him at an early age. Barack Obama Sr. was a communist who saw nothing wrong with government "taxing 100%" so long as the people got benefits. In 1965, Obama Sr. wrote an important paper titled "Problems Facing Our Socialism." In this paper, Obama Sr. put himself on the side of communist-allied leader Oginga against pro-Western "third way" leader Tom Mboya in Kenya. He was a Harvard educated economist, and a Nairobi bureaucrat, who advised government to "redistribute" income through higher taxes, and demonized corporations. He abandoned Barack Obama Jr. when he was 2 years old to continue at Harvard (teaching his son that ideology is more important than family).

Barack Obama was raised by his mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) and his maternal grandparents.
Barack Obama's mother's political views are not well documented. It is known, however, that she was a Adlai Stevenson liberal and cultural anthropologist. She went to a high school ran by an admitted communist. While there, she was required to read "Communist Manifesto" by Karl Marx, and defended this philosophy in debates. She practiced "critical theory" (aka Marxism), and was influenced by Nietzsche and Freud. She too left Barack Obama Jr. with her parents in Hawaii to travel to Indonesia and Pakistan.
What about Obama's maternal grandparents Stanley and Madelyn Dunham?

They have been reported in the mainstream media as strict Methodists. However, during Ann's high school years they went to East Shore Unitarian Church in nearby Bellevue, nicknamed "the little Red church on the hill," for their Socialist leaning sympathies and support of Communist China. As reported in the preceding paragraph, the Dunham's sent their daughter to a High School ran by an admitted communist.
Barack Obama's Mentor

It is also well known that Stanley Dunham was good friends with radical activist, journalist and communist Frank Marshall Davis. In his book "Dreams of My Father" Barack Obama tells how Davis mentored him when he struggled with abandonment by parents.

(The above biographical information indicates Barack Obama had a very Socialist upbringing.)

Barack Obama's College & Church
While in college, Obama admittedly sought out "Marxist"' professors, and admittedly attended "socialist conferences."

After college, Barack Obama moved to Chicago where his association with socialist leaning groups like ACORN are well known. Obama's association with Bill Ayers has also been documented. Ayres was a former member of the terrorist Weatherman group, a Communist-driven splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society. When Obama ran for State Senate in Illinois in 1995, he was endorsed by the Democratic Socialist of America splinter group "New Party." Obama's "Fight the Smears" website denies he was ever a member of or sought endorsement of the socialist "New Party." It is true that Obama has always ran as a Democrat. However, photos and literature from 1995 identify Obama as a "New Party" member. Since he ran unopposed in 1995, it is difficult to explain why he attended "New Party" events if he wasn't a member. He didn't need the votes.

Barack Obama’s Career as President
What has President Obama done since being elected that could be considered socialist?


He appointed a known Communist as his green jobs czar (Van Jones), and Ron Bloom as the Manufacturing Czar who is an anti-free market radical.

Obama has greatly expanded the takeover of major banks that was begun during the final months of the Bush administration. Forced mortgage CEO's to cover people who aren't paying any mortgage.

President Obama seized control of insurance giant AIG.

He voted for TARP and the $787 billion stimulus redistribution bill.

Obama believes race problems can be solved through redistribution of wealth... he said "Race is still an enormous factor in our society. But economics can overcome a lot of racial division." Evidence of this is that he told Joe the plumber “it's better when you spread things around.



Under Obama, the government has taken over General Motors, America's largest auto manufacturer, and forced Chrysler to be turned over to the workers in the UAW.

President Obama, and his progressive congress has pushed through a government takeover of health care, and an entitlement program that dwarfs Social Security, MediCare, and Medicaid, all during the worst economical crisis since America's worst, progressive President, Woodrow Wilson (credited for the propaganda tactics employed by the Nazis). The justification he uses for this is insurance companies are evil because they make too much profit. In this week's weekly address, President Obama reams insurance companies for making a profit. This healthcare legislation admittedly “redistributes the wealth.”


Obama is an admitted Single Payer Healthcare proponent.


President Obama thinks company profits should be secondary to the public interest. Let's remember how the Democratic Socialists of America describe socialism:
that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few.

President Obama has seized control of Student Loan industry in order to "cut out middle man."

President Obama was born of and raised by leftist, socialists and/or communists. His actions as President indicate the apple has not fallen far from the tree.

US Constitution, Article IV, Section 4 -
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
